    This shelf fit perfectly into a 2ft alcove I had in my apartment. Walmart offered best value - very cheap shipping, variety of colors and the price was not expensive. Sauder in general is not the best quality - it's particle board. It's not any better than IKEA. But this bookshelf with shipping was less than half the price of the IKEA bookshelf with shipping. If you want something functional, for a narrow space, and you're not going to abuse it or put a horrendous amount of heavy books on it, this is the shelving unit for you. I doubt it would survive a household move, but for the price, it's still worth it. Also, it wasn't hard to put together - less than 1 hr.

    We bought this to fit in a poorly planned space between a fireplace and outer wall and are very pleased with the bookshelf. It is obviously not a furniture store quality piece, but for what we need, it works great. Having said that, it would be nice if it came with one more shelf - which we can order for another $20 if we decide to. One thing to note is that the two side pieces are not one long piece but rather two pieces, making the middle shelf permanent. So when you go to pick it up, don't expect a long package. It comes with a mount to anchor it to the wall, which was much appreciated, as on carpet it was rather tippy without. It took maybe an hour to put together, but that was with the "help" of a two year old, so I'm sure you could do it faster on your own. The color (we got the lightest one) looks great and nearly matches our oak trim. The adjustable shelves fit in nice and snug. Really our only complaint is that it would be nice if it came with one more adjustable shelf so you don't end up with one large space somewhere.

    The price was certainly the factor in purchasing these shelves. I bought two. Both were as expected for the price. My main complaint was that it is basically in two sections, and not very sturdy. My other six-foot shelving units had 6-foot tall boards that attached. This had two 3-foot sections that sit on top of each other with only dowl rods to attach. It also would have been nice to have another free-floating shelve. There is room for it, so I'm not sure why it's not included. There's a big gap where another should be. Otherwise, it's a great storage solution for someone like me with way too many books!

    I have purchased this bookcase and I am happy that I did it. It looks good,and the price is excellent for a student budget. I have another 7 year old bookcase purchased from this company, and it survived through 4 long trips while I was moving in and out of a few states. Buy it and you'll be content, too!!!

    I had a space next to my computer desk, and I needed extra storage so I measured the space, and this bookshelf fit the dimensions perfectly. I was skeptical because the sides are not all 1 piece, but they do secure quite well. It is not rickety or flimsy. It comes with a long screw and a bracket for securing it to the wall if you're going to put heavier pieces on it. I put all of my textbooks on the bottom and miscellaneous junk on all the other shelves. Each piece of this case is very weighty. I could barely get it into my dining room (I'm a woman..) I had to walk it through, as in twist from 1 side to the other until it gets to where you need it. I didn't open the box for fear of losing something. Everything was in a little baggie though. The pieces are not labeled but the instructions have pics that you can follow without difficulty. I love it, it matches my existing furniture as if it;s part of a set. For the price you can't go wrong! It's pretty solid!! Thanks again Walmart, you always come through.

    It is extremely difficult for one person to assemble. It should have been in one section, not two. Need better clamps to hold the two sections together and would be nice if it had wheels to make moving it around easier. I should have ordered the 5-ft high unit; The 6-ft is a bit too tall - my fault, not Walmart's nor manufacture's. Needs a better way to stablize the unit on carpeted floors (maybe non-carpeted ones as well). Since I live in an apt, I cannot go punching holes in walls for a clamp to hold it upright, so I hope I have put enough weight on the bottom shelf(s) for it not to tip over. I just wish it was possible to get furniture delivered already assembled, since I am a retired, single, 70-yr-old, with no wife nor children to help with assebly projects and cannot impose on neighbors. I would recommend this to a friend that was a "do-it-yourselfer" type; who likes to build things, but not to someone like myself, is not.

    by dc2011

    Yes, it was cheap, but not cheap enough for how awful it is. The directions were practically non existent - took forever to put together - and because the directions were so bad and the parts were so cheap, I made multiple errors that resulted in damage to the unit. And i'm afraid it's going to tip over since there is no way to use the screw they give you to bolt it to the wall. would not recommend.

    I bought this product to store my daughter's books and stuffed toys. It took my husband less than an hour to put together, it holds all my daughter's books and has lots of shelf space. I'm not worried about it falling over or anything, and it looks nice. Overall, a great deal.

    I have bought a lot of Sauder bookshelves over the years. Overall the quality is sliding. They are skinnier now, less quality hardware and now the vertical pieces come in two pieces instead of one. Still sort of ok for the money, but too bad that quality is not the same.
