Nice and functional
The design/style of this piece and the price appealed to me very much when I saw the demo in the store. Unfortunately they were out of stock. I ordered online with a slight back order delay. It was easy to assemble. It fits ideally in the space I'd had in mind for it. Although designed as a book shelf, I adapted it for a lap top desk. The top shelf is a good height to alleviate a recent back condition and the lower shelves are functional for accessories.
The only drawback was a bend in the outer rim of one of the metal shelves. Rather that going through the hassle of sending it back and waiting for a questionable turnaround, I was able to straighten it out with a pair of pliers - a less than ideal fix but fortunately the flaw is disguised by the point where it attaches to the leg.
There are other pieces in this style. If I were to re-do my computer arrangement I'd probably go with other matching pieces.
I rate this as a "4" only because of the damaged component.

Most frustrating purchase in a long time
I bought this to use in my music room. It was the right size, and looked very nice when we looked at it on display. I got home, took the parts out and was astounded by the quality control....well, the lack of quality control. On the first assembly involving 4 bolts, two of the four were threaded incorrectly. The project was scuttled before it really began. In a way, I was grateful for that because I had only invested a little time, and could re-pack the box and return it early on. The Office Depot cashier was very helpful in taking the return, and asked if I wanted to try another. I don't think so.

Good media shelf
I bought this with the matching L-shape desk in fall 2008. It has held up quite well through several moves. I initially used it for my larger books, but mostly it has been a printer/scanner stand. I use the top glass shelf for my flatbed scanner, since it is easier to use there, and my heavy multi-use printer on the middle shelf. The shelf is sagging a bit, not noticeable from a distance but I really would prefer a lighter printer on it! When I had books on it I noticed the same minor sagging. This is otherwise a great size, looks great - I would just recommend keeping too much weight off the metal shelves!

Great option for a TV stand/entertainment system
Despite this being a book shelf, I bought it with the intentions of using it as an entertainment system in my living room, and its perfect! The bookcase is tall with 3 tall shelves. I was able to put 2 speakers and a sub on the bottom shelf, DVD, DVR and vinyl record player on the middle shelf and a 42" TV on top.
