Great Book case

In comparison to some other things I've put together lately, this book case was a breeze! Every thing is nicely labeled (on the wood part, so no unsightly stickers) and all parts are accounted for. The book case is really tall, there would be room for another shelf, it's too bad it doesn't come with four, we discussed making another to have more space that is why I gave "features" a three. You could fit some reallllly tall books in this! Durability seems good, it has only been put together for a day or so, we'll give it a few years.

Just what I needed...

I needed a bookcase to display pictures, caps and a trophy in. This case met all my requirements and expections. I have a 31" Sony flatscreen sitting on the top shelf. Perfect for the bedroom. The case is easy to assemble and very sturdy!
Perfect for the Bedroom

Poor Quality Control

I ordered 2 of these, and they are easy to assemble. However, BOTH of the units I ordered had the laminate missing from the top of one of the side pieces. I cannot just turn the piece over as the pieces are not interchangeable. Clearly, the whole batch must have been laminated upside down and it was not caught before being packaged. Extremely disappointed!
matches almost exactly to the tv stand. very, very easy to put together. actually bought 2 more.

Be careful with the back of this bookcase

We bought the 5 shelf bookcase to match this one. We found the back of this shelf much more flimsy than the 5 shelf. As soon as we took this out of the box our cats were all interested in what was going on. We put the back of this shelf on the floor, the cat stepped on it and it broke immediately. Now, I understand this is partly user error however the said cat is only about 5 lbs. We've been able to fix it but it was annoying. (The cat survived just in case you're wondering!) As with the other shelves, we love the color and we're using this as the stand for our TV. We've put the gaming consoles and games in the shelving as well as our DVR box. It looks pretty good. We've had compliments on this one too. No thanks to the cat.

A bookcase that large books actually fit.

The South Shore 3-Shelf bookcase is a great value; looks good with plenty of height between the shelves for books and a few decorative items without appearing overfilled. It goes nicely with my other furniture. And happily the delivery time was 4-5 days less than as estimated when I placed the order.

Better than Expected

The product is very sturdy and is a perfect cherry wood finish to my other cherry wood furniture. Very easy to put together which I did myself. I absolute love this product!

For the price this is a great book shelf!

I bought this for all my kids' books as they were becoming cumbersome. The bookcase is tall, can hold a lot of kids books even a fairly decent amount of regular books. There is a limit on the weight for each shelf though and too many books will cause a dip in the wood. The back is not real wood and if pressed against a wall you won't really notice. Overall I'm happy with it for as long as it holds up with all the books I've put in it.

Love it!!

As a three piece bundle this was easy to assemble and looks great. May have to purchase more.

Better looking than expected

This seems at first glance to be a common inexpensive particle board unit. But for the price, it is better than any others I have seen, and my son put it together quickly. I would say easily, as well, but particle board is really heavy! Anyway, a pretty decent inexpensive unit.
