A Product From Hell
Two Brain Cell Michael from Scottsdale, AZ
When I ordered the bookshelves online, it said, "Some Assembly Required." As it turned out, it should have read, "Total Assembly Required, Must Have a Degree in Engineering." As I said, there were two bookshelves. The assembly of the first one involved a string of never-before-used swear words, five drinks, two packs of smokes, a smashed thumb (still relearning how to use a hammer), and two chill pills. Total time to assemble â€” four hours. The instruction booklet, in size two font, was in English, Spanish and French. I probably would have been better off choosing to follow either the Spanish or French instructions. They showed pictures of the parts page (nuts, bolts, legs, etc.) but gave no quantities. The biggest fear of assembling anything is that they did not send enough parts. In my case, they over-sent, which immediately made me question whether or not I had left something out. When they said to screw something in with your fingersâ€¦forget it. They required my biggest hammer. When I got up the next morning I took on the second bookshelfâ€¦completing that one in one hour flatâ€¦minus ten minutes of "stupid time" on my part. The bottom line â€” they look niceâ€¦well worth the investment in spite of the "hell" the first one put me through. Oh, did I mention that they put their huge "manufactured by" sticker right where everyone could see it. It took a lot of scrubbing with a special adhesive remover to get the two stickers off. Mom-ma Mia!! They do look good, though.

Good bookcase for our needs.
Ms Wilson from Orlando FL
The bookcase is well made and was easy to assemble. It was shipped and delivered within 3 days. This was an excellent purchase. The shelves are easily adjusted for varying height of the items being placed on the shelves.
