Rated 3 out of 5�by Cornelius Shelves bow over time
Nice looking bookcase. The shelves began to bow after about a year with a full load of hardback books. This caused the front trim to break off one shelf. Office Depot replaced it at no charge. Still, I'm worried this will occur again and would not recommend it for heavy duty use.

Rated 5 out of 5�by Ken C Quality appearance, very sturdy
I have four of these, all brushed Maple finish. I will be ordering three more this week. The seven shelves will line a wall, and it was important that the shelves be identical in appearance since they have to line up at the top edge, no room for variance or it will stand out. They match perfectly. Few tools needed, just a philips screwdriver and a small tap hammer to attach the back to the shelves. It takes about an hour to assemble one (1 person).

Rated 5 out of 5�by Ken C Wonderful book cases
Very nice in appearance. I have lined an entire wall with them. Some advice for assembly. Buy a rubber mallet. Use this to tap on the slides. Buy a large candle, or a birthday candle, a numerical type like the number 2. Use the candle to wax the slide edges on the shelves and the sides of the book case before installing the trim. This will allow you to just slide on the trim on the shelves. You will be able to slide on the side trim as well, to about 4 inches short of the goal, then tap home with the rubber mallet. Using wax to aid in the assembly makes it a quicik job to put together, about 30 minutes.

Nice, sturdy set of shelves. Attractive finish. Not quite the quality expected, which is why it is 4 stars instead of 5. Expected the backing to be made of sturdier material. Nonetheless, a quality office product that should last for years.
