After reading all the previous reviews, I ended up buying this book cart because the price beat everything else on Amazon. I still don't regret it exactly, but I think there's a couple things to clarify:
1. Assembling the book cart is a somewhat involved process, but certainly not as bad as the other reviews make it out to be. It took me and a friend less than 20min with an electric drill to screw in all the parts. The thin metal shelves are very easy to damage and the corners can get bent out of shape if you're not careful, but if you're at least somewhat capable working with power tools, it's not a tough project (btw, if it takes your handyman 1.5 hrs to put it together, then I think you got fleeced, just sayin).
2. Where this Safco book cart disappoints (and the reason I only give it 2 stars), is that the design is very flawed. 'Samuel K. Jones' hit it right on the spot in his review: this cart is NOT capable of holding 6 shelves full of books. The silver end bars are sturdy enough, but the only thing connecting them together are the flimsy thin black shelves, which bend and flex like crazy. I only put 3 shelves worth of books on it, and every time I push the cart the whole thing angles forward. On turns, it does the same thing. I don't expect this product to hold up if used often. All it would've taken to make this cart amazing is to have included in the design a crossbeam of some sort to firmly secure the two ends together, instead of relying on the weak shelves. Every time I use it, it feels like i'm pushing a cart made out of recycled aluminum pop cans and not steel, that's how weak the support is.
That all being said, the cart looks nice and if you don't plan on moving it much, then go ahead and get it! But if you plan on loading it up and rolling it, better look elsewhere.

Looked at a few different types of mobile shelving, and went for this one largely due to price, as they can be really expensive, particularly with shipping costs on top.

Very happy with it, quality is very good, fairly staightforward assembly, moves around easily. Glad I had Amazon Prime!

One note, the vertical side bars do create hollow areas to the sides of the shelves. The shelves flair out to cover the gap, so there's no danger of anything falling down the side, just that books may lean into that hollow without some sort of bookend in place. Not an issue for me, but might be for some potential buyers.

This item clearly states that there is no assembly required. Buyer beware! The item comes in about 500 pieces. It took my husband (who is very gifted at assembly) two hours to put it together. Save your time and get a better bookcase. This one is sure to frustrate the entire family.

This product is just OK. It is really NOT very sturdy for something designed to hold lots of heavy books. Even with extra nudging of the bolts and hardware, I would still not fill this cart with books. Works for our purposes, but I'm disappointed.

We purchased this cart for our office and I was very excited about it. However I should have heeded the few negative reviews I saw regarding this product more carefully. The instructions for ikea furniture are like heaven compared to this monstrosity. I asked my administrative assistant to put it together and it end up taking 3 grown adults over 2.5 hours to assemble it. If you have better things for your staff to do than fight with poorly manufactured furniture I would advise you not to purchase this item. Simply put the pieces do not fit together properly and the screws are difficult to line up and tighten without an electric screwdriver. The cart now assembled, serves its purpose but I would not buy another one solely on the difficulty we had getting is assembled for use.

Purchased this for my son to use as a bookcase. It is solid and sturdy, and he and my wife really like it. We used some creative construction and mounted Safco's 3 slot wall file to the side for even more storage space.

This is the second time I've bought this book cart in a month. The first one was such good quality, we decided we could use another one. It takes 1-2 hours to assemble, but it's well worth it. Plus shipping and price were great! thanks.

First, I want to praise SAFCO's customer service people for their help so far.

It's been a deeply frustrating experience trying to assemble this book cart. The supplied screws are too wide for most of the pre-drilled holes in the metal cross braces of the unit. Simply put, you can't attach the shelves. (It takes some elbow grease to attach the end frames to the braces, but no more than one would expect for a close fit.)

I explained my problem to SAFCO, and they sent another set of screws, free of charge. I had the same problem with those, manually and with an electric screwdriver. The replacements the local hardware store suggested were too small. After talking with SAFCO's customer service, they very kindly sent me a full replacement unit, again free of charge. Unfortunately, the replacement has the same problem!

I don't think I'm being a doofus about the assembly. I've put together a lot of things, and the instructions are clear. The only fasteners are the provided screws. (The casters snap into place just fine.)

From what I can tell, the unit looks very sturdily designed, if I could put it together, and the people at SAFCO's headquarters have been nothing but helpful. I'm keeping the pieces of the units until I can bring them to a serious DIY place where they might be able to diagnose the problem better. If that doesn't work, I guess I'll end up putting a hundred pounds of metal in the trash.
