I mounted a tv on the wall and wanted a small shelf to place my DVD player and cable box on near it. This does that. First thing I noticed is that they put screws for anchors in the bag, which works well in concrete or brick, but they are NOT wood screws. Yes they will serve the purpose to mount this to a wall stud, but because they are not wood screws, you must drill a fair sized pilot hole for the screw. I wonder how many people tossed them in favor of a different screw that would be easier to screw into a stud. This is my primary reason for the less than 4 star rating. Second thing is a design issue. Once I got the DVD player and cable box on the shelf I found the shelf does not give a good way to hide some of the cabling. Its minor but when I look at it, I see this mess of wiring dangling below the shelf, which is kind of in opposition to the shelf's minimalistic design. Since the shelf is minimalistic there are not many options for hiding wires. I will have to find a way to make it look neater. I know it is a bit nit-picky, but the end result does look a bit tacky. Oh well it works fine.
