Rated 5 out of 5 by chief3935 Excellent in every way!
I purchased one of these shelving units about four years ago to use as a tv stand for a 32 inch flat screen and have been extremely satified. I needed two more for other purposes and I am still happy with the product. High quality, strong construction (200 lbs. per shelf), attractive and versatile (shelves can be adjusted in 1 inch increments). One of the best features is NO TOOLS required, none at all. Easy directions and assembly.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jackguy The 1st was good enough that I purchased a 2nd!
I have had one for three weeks, and the 2nd one for a couple of days. They look good and seem stable. I mention stable because I decided to only use two shelves when assembling each item! While I am certain that they would be more stable with all three shelves, for my purposes it doesn't seem to cause any problem.
They have threaded adjustable floor pads for leveling, but I didn't need to adjust them. The shelves can be placed at many different heights. You CAN turn the shelves upside down to provide a raised lip, but I don't think they are designed to do that. Such a shelf doesn't slide down, but it does lift straight up! It is not as fully locked in place.
------ Some Possibly Helpful Info -----
I had one minor problem during assembly. It was completely solved without using any tools. I wouldn't even mention it, except that the exact same problem occurred with both units. The following is more helpful information than a real complaint.
Each of the four legs has two parts that screw together. Each leg has a third part with 2 opposite threads. The part is pre-threaded into one half of each of the four legs. It is not seated tightly, so you can unscrew it completely with your finger tips if you wish to examine it.
The assemble procedure is very simple. Just thread both legs onto the device with the opposing threads. With three legs there was no problem. - I took care and only used finger tip force so that I would not strip any threads. Of course, I did provide greater pressure at the end to "seat" the connection. However with one leg on each unit there was a jam after half a turn. That left me with no option but to provide greater than finger tip pressure, and hope that I could overcome the jam. I did that with no real problem. Just gripping with one hand on each half of the leg, and twisting in opposite directions, I was able to force another half a turn. At that point it started to turn freely again. Nothing but a minor jam, that was relatively easy to overcome. The second time I was not really worried. Just though you might like to be aware of the possible surprise. Also Whitmor provides a telephone number if you have more difficulty than I did.
Everything about this purchase was well above average.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jumazak EASY!
I have limited use of my hands and I assembled this on my own with no problem in about 10 mins.
It is very sturdy and has adjustable feet for leveling it.
I will most likely buy more of these as they are easier to assemble than bookshelves, they look better, and are much more sturdy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nannums I purchased two of the small 3-tier shalves to use in a small office space.
They are great. They are very sturdy and the perfect size to hold my file baskets.
Assembly was very easy
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dr2Be Great to use in place of expensive kitchen cart!
I just moved to a very small apartment in NYC and have literally no counter space to put anything on (like a microwave, rice cooker, cooking utensils, etc.). I was adamant about getting a kitchen cart but they were just SO expensive for what I needed and so I thought I would give this a try. I am SO happy I did! It was super easy to assemble (less than 15 minutes) and it looks really sleek in my modern kitchen. Its shelves are large enough to fit my small microwave (.7 Cu. Ft.) yet small enough to not be an eyesore or take up too much space. I have a small plant, knife set, rice cooker, toaster, and microwave all in that little cart! I would highly recommend it!

I recommended these to my sister and she loves them also.
We think the black color is great!
Rated 5 out of 5 by SMLKArden Great Buy
I bought these to create additional storage in my kitchen. They look great and are very sturdy. My bread maker sits on the top shelf and when it's kneading and moving around, the shelves stay in place and take the bread maker's abuse! They're easy to put together and easy to keep clean. I like these so well, I ordered the larger chrome shelves for my office.

A little tricky to assemble, but worth the effort. Turned an under-used "coat closet" next to my kitchen into a perfect little pantry.

Very easy to assemble (no screws or tools required). Easy to adjust veritcal location of shelves. I use it to hold 3 large plastic storage bins to hold newspapers, mixed media papers, plastic bottles, glass jars, and aluminum and steel cans for recycling. Perfect size. Everyone should have one. Mine is in the laundry room.
