The title pretty much says it all, but here are more details anyway. We purchased 3 of these bookshelves to be used in a home office. We were in a bind and needed bookshelves like, NOW, so we went with cheap because we don't need them to last but a few months. We definitely got what we paid for. First of all, taking them out of the boxes I could already tell that we paid for cheap, we got cheap. They are your typical particle board, laminate covered, bolt together shelves, but considering the damage to them before we even opened them...it wasn't good. While the boxes didn't appear damaged or crushed, many corners of the boards were so I assumed this happened at the factory. While the bookcases are fairly easy to put together, they are not very sturdy. I DEFINITELY recommend using the included strap for securing the bookcase to the wall and I also DEFINITELY recommend following the manufacturers instructions about putting this together as close as possible to where it will be standing. You will not be able to move these around very much without damage. The very first case broke at the bottom (still usable, but makes it more unstable) just moving it 15 feet. Overall I DO NOT recommend this product if you are wanting anything of quality, but I DO recommend this product if you are like us and in a bind for shelving at a cheap price. Just don't expect the cases to survive a move. ;-)
