Realspace� Dawson 5-Shelf Bookcase With Doors, 72H x 30 1/2W x 11 3/5D, Brushed Maple
I purchased the computer desk, the 2 drawer file cabinet and the bookcase to match. The first two were great. I was a little disappointed to find the hardware on the bookcase did not match the other two. A little thing but very noticable to me. Also, is not as sturdy as I would like.

Cheap, but effective.
For the price you cannot go wrong, BUT be ready to interpret some of the directions, have too many/few screws, and adjust some parts to close or slide correctly. Of every item in the set none of the drawers, hinged parts, or moving sliders worked completely well. Finished look is good. Function is good. Ergonomics are good. Veneer is very thin, so be careful not to bang or scratch with hard objects. No venting for the computer housing in the desk/credenza, so may want to consider adding some. Cable routing options are very limited - none from below into the cpu cuddy. Wood finish is quite nice, but the grain pattern reoccurs often. Invest in a hand held staple gun as trying to tack on the wood paper backing is impossible utilizing the tiny black nails. These are items you should be ready to live with at this price point. Being a particle board and glue product I would not use in a moist or high humidity environment. If moving it would relocate poorly and likely not hold up.

We purchased the matching desk several years ago and then found the bookcase. It takes a while to assemble but is a nice bookcase. The handles do not match the desk in color but do in style. We are happy with the purchase. We plan to get the matching file cabinet also.

Nice Book Shelf
Pretty solid book shelf. The only piece not solid is the back covering but thats ok with me, it still looks great. I was impressed. I liked that it has safety straps that attach to the wall behind it. It matches the desk perfectly with the same matching knobs. Have some Elmers glue and a phllips screwdriver and your all set to do the 13 steps that is required to build it. My husband put it together as I read the instructions and gathered the parts he needed. It went very smooth that way. I think this was a pretty easy piece to put together whereas, the desk that goes with this is more complex but even that wasnt too hard. I dont think you'd be dissapointed especially with the good price that goes along with it.
