I bought two of these in white while they were on sale for 50% off. At that price I feel this was a great deal. They're sturdy and a decent size. I bought them to hold some books and some decor and they do a good job. Assembly is really straight forward and directions were easy to understand. It was a small pain trying to line up the holes evenly while holding the two pieces together, but it wasn't difficult. I bought the 6 cube Room Essentials shelf as well and I felt that was easier to put together than this one. There are a few reasons I give it 4 stars instead of 5. First, the screws all over the sides make it very unattractive and cheap looking. It does come with screw covers, but eh. They don't sit flush against the sides and it just looks off. Second, the backing is a flimsy piece of cardboard that is folded in half. I didn't even attach mine as I felt it looked better without. The third reason is because while I feel it was a great buy while on sale, if I need another one and it was full price, I wouldn't buy it. It's just too expensive for what it is imo. Overall, I am really happy with my shelves, just a few minor things that keep it from being great.
