Realspace� Magellan 4-Cube Bookcase, 33 7/8H x 30 1/8W x 15 5/8D, Espresso
Good value for the price
Shipping was super fast, received 3 or 4 days from when I ordered. Pretty easy to put together if you just set everything out and go step by step with patience! I did it alone, maybe an hour or hour and a half. Price is slightly higher than some discount stores, but the product is a bit sturdier than what I've seen elsewhere and worth it. The curved base in the front makes it look a bit more stylish. I ended up placing canvas bins in it, but if I choose later to put collectibles in the cubes, I like that the back is enclosed. It's just sturdy cardboard, but makes it look more finished. Overall, I am happy with this product!

Nice looking, but you need two people to put together to hold some pieces that need to be screwed in, instead of using locking cams like on the rest. The dowel holes are not drilled correctly and pop through the side of the cabinet and ruin the outer side.This is the same cabinet I previously purchased and had the exact same problem, in the exact same place, as the first one. We even marked the dowels at the halfway point, this time, to make sure they were in far enough and would not pop through the side......but they did. The replacement cabinet they sent out the first time was correctly made. Waiting for the replacement on the second one now. The Backing on ALL the Magellan Cubes I purchased (4) are incorrectly cut.

We bought this shelf and it's big brother (the 4x2) to use in our living room for general storage. These are much nicer than the standard "snap-together" office furniture you usually get in this price range. The assembly was very easy as well. All of the parts come individually bagged and labeled based on the step # in the instructions, so there's never a question of whether you have the right screw. The construction is very sturdy as well.
The styling is a little nicer than usual - the top has rounded corners and the lower front board has a small arch to it.
