I ordered 2 of these bookshelves, one shelf was in great condition as I would expect from a new product. It assembled easily and looks great. The other bookshelf.... all of the shelves that were locked in place were scratched on both sides. Deep scratches. I thought about returning them to my local Walmart, but they wouldn't have had a replacement and I didn't want to wait any longer for shelving. For the value, I think it was decent. One shelf was absolutely perfect and I would highly recommend for an inexpensive bookshelf. The other shelf was beat up, scratched and in parts missing the laminate exposing the wood/particle board and I was extremely disappointed and would not recommend. I guess my advice is if you're into taking chances on a potentially good deal then buy this product-- otherwise pay a little bit more and find a different shelf.

It was easy for my dad to put the bookcase together, and it's easy to adjust the selves. I just didn't like that back panel is different from the other boards. The back panel felt like card board.

I have 4 south shore book cases, two 5-shelf and two 4-shelf. They go together pretty fast and with little effort. Reasonably sturdy for a cheap book case, but the shelves do sag just a little when loaded with books as you can see in the photo. They are functionally attractive. The back is cardboard, the shelf pins are plastic, and the price is great. I built a 5-shelf bookcase and it cost me $75 in materials and took hours to cut, paint and assemble. Very sturdy, however. I'm going to purchase 2 more of the south shore 5-shelf units so I obviously can recommend them. I am going to use hardboard for the back and nail it to every shelf, adding about $10 to the cost of each one. If you're looking at bookshelves in this price range then look no further, these will do the job.

Maybe if you're the kind of person who can afford a real wood book shelf this will be a disappointing buy, but for those of us who actually need to shop at places like WalMart, this is an exceptional product. For a DIY particle and laminate book shelf it is really sturdy, being secured by 12 heavy-duty screws at top and bottom and on the fixed shelf, over 60 nails in the backing, and the cross pieces which add a classy finish as well as durability. For one person alone the assembly is pretty labor-intensive, but it can still be done and probably in an hour or two tops with minimal tools or know-how. All of the screw holes are pre-tapped, extra hardware is included, and the pictographic instructions are easy to follow. The only real potential for frustration is nailing on the back straight. I did have some issues with shipping, but nothing that seemed indicative of more than a one-time problem and it did serve to highlight how well packaged this product is. Even with the obvious mistreatment of my package, the pieces didn't get a scratch in the well-stacked, tightly shrinkwrapped, and padded box. The only real con- barely- is that there is some very minor bowing to the shelves at well above the recommended capacity, but there is no indication that will get any worse or that they will give out. Even without the wall bracket (also included and recommended) the shelf is well-balanced and true, does not lean even against the wall and on carpet.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I was looking for inexpensive bookshelves that would show off my collectables rather than the shelves themselves. My living room is relatively dark, so I applied a light colored contact paper to the back panel before nailing it on. It reflected the available light and made everything stand out perfectly. I like these shelves so much (I bought 3) that I'm going to buy one more to balance the room. As far as ease of putting them together; it took me longer with the 1st one, and I screwed the top shelf on upside down (not clear in the instructions), but easy to correct. The other shelves went together in about 15 min each...by myself.

Arrived a day ahead of projected delivery far (+), matched existing cases which are almost 30 years old. Easy assemblage but recommend laying out on floor prior to assembling. The taller cabinet is the recent purchase.

This is the third bookcase I purchased from this manufacturer. I like the extra trim piece at the top. It makes the bookcase look a little more finished. Also the side pieces are one full piece which makes it easier to put together and I believe a much sturdier bookcase. I purchase the white ones as I like to mix and match the sizes to create a larger wall unit. I use them for collectibles, my TV and VCR/DVD player, books, and movie storage. I bolt the multiple bookcases together and I always attach them to the wall stud to be sure they don't fall over. The manufacturer always includes enough hardware and usually supply a few extra pieces. Packaging is great as all corners of the bookcases have a cardboard corner cover so when you cut the box open with a knife you don't have to worry about cutting your boards. The only drawback to any shelving made of particle board is that the shelves will not remain flat with heavy items on them. The shelves will tend to bow. All in all I have been very pleased with the product.

Really this product is well packaged and the appearance is fine. However it should not be called a " book' case., because the construction is VERY lightweight, and the case will not support more than one or two very small books per shelf. My husband assembled the item, secured it to the wall and I loaded it with books. It looked great for about two hours until the moveable shelves began to sag in the middle. We had to remove all the books, remove the hardware securing the case to the wall, put mollys ( hallow wall fasteners) into the wall, then re-secure the case and mount shelf brackets in the middle of each moveable shelf, then reload the shelves. The brackets appear to be providing enough additional support, but we could have just used shelves and brackets in the first place! It currently looks great. But if you buy it plan to display only small items or to provide significant reinforcement.

  • A. If you do decide to drill more holes in the sides, I have a trick which will help you to prevent you from drilling too deeply and coming out the other side, leaving an unsightly hole on the outside. Wrap some masking tape around the drillbit marking the depth you want to drill. It will help you to stop before you go too far. My Dad taught me this and I have drilled countless additional peg holes in things using this method. WD-40 will help remove any residual adhesive from the drillbit.

  • A. I'm not an expert, but from looking at my shelf, it seems like it would be fine to drill holes if needed. FYI: There are 3 adjustable shelves. The third shelf down is fixed into the shelf and cannot be moved. Each of the other 3 shelves has a choice of 5 holes to place the shelf on. If you were to place your shelves in the existing holes, you could potentially add new particle board shelves to the existing ones, and fit at least 6 more adjustable shelves without needing to add holes--the spacing would be 5 inches between shelves if you placed a shelf at the top and bottom of the 5 existing holes, or 8-10 inches of space where there are no holes until it reaches the next set of holes. You may have to buy some more particle board shelving and shelf holders (which we've done before at Home Depot--they'll even cut the board for you). Good luck!

  • A. There are so many extra holes for the adjustable shelves, that you could add more adjustable shelves without drilling any extra holes. Just space the adjustable shelves out in a way that you can use the existing holes. And then get yourself more shelves.
