Easy Assembly, Sturdy, Good Deal

Arconna from Gainesville, FL

The ORE 4 Tier Book Shelf is remarkably simple to put together. It comes with all the tools you need (a little Allen wrench) and a single page for the instructions. The instructions aren't confusing either. They're very simple and straightforward. I only occasionally hit a snag when a screw wouldn't catch properly, but, for the most part, assembly was a cinch. This is probably its most practical feature.

Visually, this particular shelf has one thing going for it, and one thing going against it. First: while the screws are black like the rest of the shelf, they are slightly noticeable on the outside of the supports. I'm not sure how this could be improved for future versions, but if you are more interested in the kinds of shelves where the connections are not visible, this one might not be for you. Second: despite the noticeability of the screws, the shelf does look quite nice, especially with books on it (though I may be a tad biased here). I've actually raised the shelf off the floor with a set of plastic bed-frame raisers, which creates a bit of space underneath the shelf and provides significantly more support (this particular shelf is a tad top heavy, so you shouldn't put your biggest books on top if you can help it).

All in all, I'm much more satisfied with this shelf than I was with the annoying mylar contraption currently holding a large quantity of my books. For one, this shelf doesn't start bowing the second you put something on it, unlike mylar shelves. It also isn't easy to break. The bars that act as supports for the shelves can bend, but because they are made of metal, they don't do so easily. I've had a lot of books sitting on this thing for about a week and there is almost no bowing at all.

I'd recommend this particular shelf to anyone who is on a budget, but doesn't want to buy flimsy material. I can't speak to the quality of other ORE products, but in terms of holding up to punishment, this particular ORE does so just fine. That, to me, is more important than how a shelf looks. Some of the mylar ones have a nice look to them (artificial though they may be), but they fall apart when put to the test of a few dozen books. The ORE 4 Tier would also be a good fit for college students (you know, for all those college books we're supposed to be reading).

A very, very sturdy shelf!

TJ from California

As soon as I lifted the box I had a worry about the shelf: the box was light, only 20 lbs. Nor did it look like the shelf could possibly be as big as I imagined…

I dumped all my pieces out to see what I had to work with. And began to hunt for instructions. Unfortunately, the instructions were completely worthless. You know the sort that just show how everything goes if you could hover the whole thing in the air magically? Luckily, I glanced through the pieces and decided that I could do it without the help of some piece of paper.

I attached the first pieces sort of hesitantly, just to see if I had things roughly right. The shelf and tools consist entirely of four sides (which slide together to make two sides), 4 shelves, 12 bars, 24 screws, 2 caps for the ends of the shelf to protect the floor, and an allen key. (And for those who don't know what an allen key is, it's a tiny little tool that you use for the screws rather than a screwdriver. It's very simple to use.)

Now confident that I wasn't ruining things, I went forward faster. Actually, I was having a lot of fun putting this together. I decided to attach all the bars to one side of the frame first and then sort of just attach the other side. It worked out pretty smoothly.

With minimal injury, cursing, or set backs the shelf was completed! I probably got the whole thing up in about an hour or so, so I think that qualifies as "super easy." Plus, the whole thing felt sturdier than I expected from the weight. Each shelf is supported by two bars beneath (and it's made of metal) and the shelf itself has another bar between each shelf.

The shelf does exactly what I want it to do. It's currently holding all my heaviest books without complaint. I played around with the space a little and found that it holds the following comfortably (at least with randomly selected books of various sizes):

* ~ 25 trade paperback novels (standing vertically) per shelf; 100 on the whole bookcase.
* ~ 20 hardcover books (standing vertically) per shelf; 80 on the whole bookcase.
* ~ 22 mass market books (standing vertically with only one row) per shelf; 88 on the whole bookcase.
* ~ 37 mass market books (placed horizontally) per shelf; 148 on the whole bookcase.

Okay, so the shelf isn't the prettiest thing ever, but it's not hideous either. It's sturdy, light, and holds as many books as I hoped. The only other negative I would mention is that I think the sides can potentially bite into books (leaving tiny bar-shaped indents), but I placed used or older books in those positions to limit any effect that has on my book collection. Over all: it was, overall, a positive experience.

Surprisingly holds a lot of weight!

Diane from Wisconsin

I was actually surprised in the quality of this shelf. I'm using it as a bookshelf and it can really hold a lot of weight. The quality is amazing, espeically given the price I paid. Excellent choice!

nice for the price

Sandy from Kittery, ME– Verified Buyer

Had a narrow wall to fit a bookcase. This one worked great. Put a lot of weight on it. A little wobbly but holds its own. Nice for the price. I'd go for the 5 tier for more storage space.

It was difficult to assemble.

JFS the clumsy from Henderson, Nevada

I had parts left over but it looks great and does the job I bought it for. After this experience I started hiring a handyman to assemble stuff [...]- it's too tough for my fragile fingers - but the end product is worth it.
