Rated 1 out of 5�by Bob57 Lemon?
I was very suprise and dismayed when after assembling the bookshelf and placing books on the shelves, the entire piece collasped. It fell to the right and pieces broke. I don't know if this particular item was a lemon but I have purchased bookshelfs from other manufacturers and have never had one collapse. I was disturbed while assembling that it was designed for the larger section to be on top, ensuring the item would have a high center of gravity. I will never purchase from that company again.

Rated 5 out of 5�by Brian Great affordable book shelves
This 5 shelf piece was fairly easy to put together. It seems to be very sturdy and matches our other office furniture. The price was right. Overall very happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5�by apt221bbakerst Realspace Basic Bookcase-5 shelf
I have 4 of these presently and plan to get more. I love them because they are inexpensive and do the job. The shelves are adjustable and the black bookcases look very classy and make the items on the shelves stand out. I actually use one of these as an entertainment unit. I cut holes in the back of the bookcase and put my tv, dvd and cable box wiring through the holes. I have all four bookcases sitting against each other on one wall which hides all the wiring from the tv/dvd/cable and looks really great. I have had compliments and people saying, "Wow, I am going to do that too!" Why spend money on an entertainment unit that takes up too much room when you can streamline by creating one from a bookcase. If you decide to change your mind down the road, you just have to get black posterboard and patch up the spots.
The only complaint I have about these bookcases is that the back is black cardboard, but put together it looks great and like I said I am buying more. I actually have plans to convert some of these bookcases into a display case by putting in sliding plexiglass doors.
