ONE IS GREAT, THE OTHER, NOT SO MUCH from Santa Rosa, CA on 11/11/2014
I ordered two of these bookcases. On the plus side: They arrived quickly. The packaging was AMAZING--extra reinforced along edges & corners, so there was no damage during shipment. The instructions were pretty clear, and I put the first one together with only a few minor difficulties. There were a few extra pieces of hardware, which is nice. The holes for nailing the backing board on are pre-drilled, which is nice and makes that part go faster. The minus parts: The second one was harder to put together. I think some of the drilled slots for the turn screws were not as precisely aligned. That made it impossible to get the assembly 100% right. Fortunately, it doesn't show once the whole thing was assembled, but it was frustrating. The next issue is the cardboard backboard. I chose this manufacturer and this style because it said "solid wood" (it's not, it's MDF, a recycled wood product). I don't mind that so much--MDF isn't bad stuff, though it's not good for bookcases with long shelves (they sag) and that's not an issue for this item. But somewhere (description? Customer review??) I also read that the back panel was wood, too. It's not. It's heavier cardboard than cheaper products, but it's still cardboard. There are also a few design shortcuts I felt detracted from the product. In the back panel are six pre-cut holes that look as if they could be punched out...for cords??? They won't show once I have books in there, though. The other issue is that to underside of the middle shelf has the same holes drilled as the shelf above it--but it doesn't need those holes! Some black plastic "caps" were provided to cover some of the more major hardware joins, but not for these. Again, it's not very noticeable, but it just seems like it would be nicer not to have drilled holes on a finished surface if they aren't necessary. I followed the directions to put these together on carpet or a blanket to avoid scratching the finish, but the surface does scratch easily. A Sharpie covers that pretty well, but again, ordinary use is going to do these in. I gave it a 4 rating because I felt like I got one good bookcase, and one that had issues but ended up "okay".

Goegeous from Richmond, VA on 12/09/2014 – Verified Buyer
I purchased 2 of these bookcases. The materials have a substantial weight. It took me a couple hours to put the first one together. Read the directions carefully to avoid having to redo certain steps or using the wrong flathead screws at the wrong time. I used a home drill with a low torque setting and then hand tightened with a screw driver when necessary. I think it would be incredibley hard to so it all with just a hand screwdriver. The second one went together in about an hour. They look terrific and the style is just what I wanted. I am using fabric milk crates for discreet storage on some of the shelves which completements the style. I would recommend these from a style, quality and cost perspective. However, be prepared to spend some time putting it together.

Professor from RIDGEFIELD, NJ on 10/18/2014 – Verified Buyer
Very nice looking bookcase. The size and color (as seen in the photos) are just right for my small home office. Shipment arrived fast. The carton is heavy! But for me, more weight = better quality. The whole piece took a small guy like me roughly about 3 hours to put together, without any confusions.

The lamp, the bookshelf, the media storage, and the 3 drawer chest. from Kennesaw, GA on 12/05/2014 – Verified Buyer
The lamp, the media storage, and the book shelf met or exceeded my expectations. They are a great value for the price. The quality is something I've come to expect from Wayfair. I wasn't disappointed. The furniture items I ordered were what I wanted, so they work nicely in my home. My only reservation was the 3 drawer chest. It is a fairly sturdy piece, it just wasn't as nice a piece. It looked a little cheap. But over all I'm very satisfied with all my purchases from Wayfair.

Looks just like the picture! from Philadelphia, PA on 06/04/2015 – Verified Buyer
Totally matched the description. Be careful when you're attaching the backing, it is nearly the exact same size as the bookcase and is easily to tack on incorrectly so that some of the board is sticking out. Pros: Incredible value - very nice detail and look compared to similarly priced items Cons: You have to use the section title holders - there are pre-made holes for the holders in the slats

A good buy for the price! from Dallas, PA on 06/09/2015 – Verified Buyer
Bought two bookcases. Assembly wasn't difficult. The bookcases are sturdy and with one on each side of our large screen t.v., they create a fine addition to our family room. Finally, they hold an ample number of books with space to spare. We don't regret buying these bookcases. Pros: Substantial products at low prices Cons: Need two people to lift them once assembled.

Good buy. from San Rafael, NM on 09/18/2014 – Verified Buyer
I'm so glad I bought these shelves. I put two sets of them in my dining room and they balance the space perfectly on top of holding all my cooking and healing books along with some pretty things. They were fairly easy to put together although I'm glad my husband was doing most of it. I was surprised by how sturdy they are once together...no wobbles at all. I'm giving 4 star rating instead of 5 simply because I haven't had them very long and the real test will be in how they hold up over time. I do recommend the Edge Water 43.98" Bookcase.

The price is right!! from Fairlawn, OH on 10/15/2014 – Verified Buyer
My new bookcase looks great in my room. It is made of real wood and is worth the price. I may look into buying more of the Bayview line.

Fantastic accessory to my office! from Grayslake, IL on 07/11/2015 – Verified Buyer
This bookshelf was very easy to build, directions were easy to follow, and it didn't take long at all. For the price of the item, this is a steal. It has a great finish that makes it look like it would cost more. Definitely worth the purchase! Pros: Beautiful finish and easy to build
