Good for the price

A couple pieces came damaged, but Sauder was quick to replace with no questions asked. This is to be expected and can occasionally happen with covered particle board. The bookcase was pretty easy to assemble and looks great when done. Only one small gripes which are more of a convenience issue. Assembling the shelves it is important to make sure you measure out evenly the finished edge spacing for either side before trying to place them within the unit. As with covered particle board, any little scrapes can cause damage!

This bookcase is gorgeous --- the look, style, quality represents well. I bought this book case in oak as a replacement for an older one in a back hallway, and my husband was so impressed with it's stature that he painstakingly removed all the books from the one in the living room and moved it to the back just to put this one in it's place. Then he chided me about what was I thinking to want to put that one in the back and leave the other beat up one up front. Take my word for it, the photo doesn't do it any justice. It is really a gorgeous piece of furniture and will be a scene setter in any room. We are still pleased with our purchase and proud to own this piece of furniture, and it is money well spent. Now, we're figuring on getting rid of another older book case in the living room (part of the three-part set of yester year) and putting another one like this in it's place.
Price great.. looks great!

I was in desperate need for some book shelves but I didnt want to pay a ton. These book shelves were perfect! They were easy to put together. I put two of them together in just under 3 hours. The only thing I am slightly concerned about is the patented slide on moldings. It made it easy to assemble but because the shelves are particle board I am worried they will break off easily. Definitely going to have to keep my kids from climbing on them (not just for the mouldings but for safety also.) Just make sure to move while holding onto the main frame and not the moldings. Best bang for your buck!
Just the right size!
Patricia from Philadelphia, PA– Verified Buyer
Absolutely LOVE this book case! The wood matches my other furniture perfectly and it was just the right size for my books. My only complaint, hence the 4 stars, was that two shelves have started to bow. The book shelf is stacked correctly -- heavy books on bottom and outer edges; smaller, lighter books in the middle and top-- and still I have bowing. Overall, it's a great bookcase for anyone with a lot of books, now I need another one.

Shipped quickly - had it 3 days after ordering. Easy to construct (I bought two). Substantial and sturdy feel for pre-fab made in China product. It was just what I needed for the space in my basement for bookcase storage. Handsome looking pieces, but veneer is thin over particle board so be careful not to scratch. Also, I don't recommend free standing the product. You need to anchor bookcase to the wall because of its shallow depth it could topple over with any weight on it.
Very Nice - Great Value
Amanda from Oswego, IL– Verified Buyer
This brand is always a great value and looks more expensive than what you pay for it. The finishing touches on this shelf make it look real nice. Big and sturdy. Took a while to put together but I did it all by myself. Would buy again.
Looks more expensive than it is
Samantha from Brooklyn, NY– Verified Buyer
This bookcase is incredibly sturdy and looks much more expensive than it is. However, I had some difficulty putting it together on my own; had to call in two maintenance guys from my building to actually get it together, but once it was assembled it looked beautiful. Definitely a very solid piece of furniture.
Little difficulty assembling
Kathy from TN– Verified Buyer
Overall it's a good bookcase, wide and deep shelves. The only problem I had was with a few of the cams. They didn't seem to tighten as much as I thought they should. Didn't feel stable until the moulding and backboard were attached. But I did put it together myself, instructions were easy, and finished it in a reasonable amount of time.
Easy to assemble and looks great
-- from MD– Verified Buyer
The bookcase was easy to assemble. The back is a cardboard liner and makes it look slightly cheap, though it will be hard to see that behind everything on the shelves. The remainder of the bookcase looks great.
Nice basic bookcase
Anne from Colony, TX– Verified Buyer
Takes a little time to put together. Like that there are adjustable and permanent shelves. The back piece is pretty thin but once items are one shelf don't notice. I guess if I wanted I could paper or paint the back
