I've had this bookcase for about 3 months now and the bookcase has badly tilted to the left. I have a trashcan placed beside it to keep it from tilting even more. The instructions say that you shouldn't exceed 30lbs on any shelf and the weight of the heaviest shelf is only 24lbs. Needless to say the bookcase found its way to a dumpster just because it isn't worth the hassle of taking it back.

I just bought the Mainstay 5-shelf bookcase yesterday and assembled it in less than an hour. The wood pieces came together with no problem but once I started trying to align the backing into place I realized the bookcase wasn't completely straight. I had to angle the backing so that one corner was slightly higher than the other so that the sides were completely covered. After I lifted the bookcase in the upright position and slid it against the wall I noticed that it leans to the left and slightly forward at the top. The forward lean isn't bad enough that I would be scared of it tipping over by itself but I will not be putting super-heavy stuff on the top shelves just to be safe, and it comes with an anchor strap that connects to the wall to prevent it from completely falling over. I only paid $28 for this item so I can't complain too much and unless you sit and study the bookcase you would never notice that it was anything less than perfect. All-in-all its a good product for the price.

I moved into a new home and needed an efficient way to organize my movies/ games and kids clothes. (dressers are not functional for us) I bought 4 of these bookshelves... and I've had them for 4 years. I bought the file crates for the office and organized my kids clothes into them sorted by t-shirt, pajamas, sweats, jeans... and so on. I place the baskets width wise on the shelves, 2 per shelf and have NEVER had a problem. The kids can get into their clothes and find exactly what they need. They even lean their bunk bed ladder on them to get stuff off the top shelves. (boxes of legos and small toys# never fallen over on them. I used 1 for my dvd's and vhs movies, and I have about 300 movies on it. The only down side was when I tried to move it #like an idiot) with all the weight on it, I pushed too hard and buckled the middle section breaking it. I got a piece of OSB and fixed it myself, not a biggie. I have one packed full of board games, holds quite a bit of weight and never a problem there either. They were easy to assemble and I had extra parts left over. For the people who had the shelves buckle... duh! you can't put an extreme amount of weight on them, it says each shelf should not exceed 20lbs right in the directions. I've recommended this product to friends and family, and no one else has had issues either. I'm actually looking to buy 2 more for pantry storage here in another 2 weeks. I love this shelf.

I own 1 of these bookcases and I going to purchase another! For the price they are a steal, if you want elegant, you will defintely have to pay! If you want function, these are perfect! I've owned this one for 3 years now and the only drawback I've been able to find is that if you load the shelves completely from side to side with heavy books, the shelves will eventually bow a small amount. But this same thing happens with solid wood bookshelves also. I couldn't be happier!

Perfect for getting everything put away. I had difficulty getting everything to match up when I put the first one together. But now I have a wall of beautiful, matching booksheves for under 100 dollars. Would not suggest these for someone who moves frequently. They are sturdy when put together the first time. Do not take apart and reassemble or try and move as a complete unit frequently.

I have had this shelf for a year recently moved and it still stayed together which is a vast improvement from the same brand three tier shelf which both of the ones I have fell apart upon moving. So I most definitely recommend this unit.

Worst Bookcase I have ever purchased

Customer review by Foopy23

I purchased three of these bookcases to replace some 3-shelf bookcases I had that were getting overfull. I was hoping they would be as nice as another mainstays 5-shelf system I had purchased in the past. I was dead wrong. Apparently, the company that manufactures these things decides whether or not to finish sides of their boards at random. First, the very top of the shelf is not finished, leaving a completely bare surface on the outside of the shelf. It might not matter to some as it is on the top, but it matters to me. Second, the second shelf that I had opened to assemble has one of the removable shelves with a completely unfinished side... a "feature" that is unique to this box, as the first one I had assembled had finish on all visible sides of the removable shelving. I simply can not wait to open the third box to see what surprises lay in store for me! Finally, the cardboard that you're supposed to nail on to the back of this thing to make it stable is shaped poorly. The two separate pieces will only fit if overlapped, and when overlapped you can not see where you are driving the nail. Odds are that you'll drive one of the nails straight through the op of the board on the other side. When it stands, it is stable enough. Just don't ever expect to move it out of your home. Or run into it accidentally. If I had the opportunity, I would never have bought these in the first place, and I will certainly not be buying any mainstays brand furniture again in the future. I'll go to used furniture stores or try Target brand Cheap Furniture instead. This product is disgraceful.

I own 5 of these bookcases, yes they are cheap...but they do the job. They hold my books and DVDs just fine, the others are used for my kids toys. I do add shims under mine for added stability, but that's because i have floor boards all along my walls, so without the shims, of coarse the bookcase are going to rock. But I would recommend these to anyone, they look nice and for the price you can't beat it.

I have owned one of these for around 6 months now and use it to display an array of craft beer bottles. It is very sturdy for the price but I still try to limit the shelves to 20 lbs to prevent bowing effect over time. It does look good, but obviously not as good as a bookcase that you would spend much more money on. I don't quite like the fact that the outward side of the very top shelf is unfinished, as that just leads you to believe that quality is being overlooked; but I am 6'1" and I can not see the unfinished side while standing, so it isn't that bothersome. I plan on purchasing a 3 tier shelf to be used as a cheaper version of a hutch for my bar area.
