The metal is soft enough to move easily, not solid like I'd hope shelves like this would be. But still, I couldn't bend it back so that the indentation in the shelf would go away, and it's still "bendy" (flexible) in an undesirable way. This means that when I put something on it such as a pen holder, it does not sit level, and looks bad as well as not sitting firmly when I put it if others things move around (as they can tend to do when you use various things on your desk). So, the problem is not only the dented top (horizontal, as shown in the default photo) shelf, but also just the unstable, unfirm nature of the mesh shelves in general.
In general, this is a simple object with no moving parts, seemingly without much to say about it beyond what you can see. But I've found that the shelves that constitute the horizontal shelves in that default view (which is how I have mine sitting) being so soft and flexible is a major flaw, given that one of the major desirable (so I thought) aspects of the design for me, at least, was that the top shelf could be used for things that it turns out won't sit firmly and reliably in place there. There's really no reason to buy one of these if you don't plan to put things on that surface, so this matters. Things like staplers, pen holders, etc. that aren't lightweight should be able to sit there without sitting askew and being at risk of sliding due to the unstable and uneven surface, and it should allow your desk to look tidy and professional, especially if used in an office setting. This looks professional in the photos, but doesn't on my desk due to this flaw.
When you consider the price for this simple object with no moving parts, just a hunk of metal basically, it really should be better built, with better quality control (and maybe putting it in a box could prevent some of the bent units such as mine arriving bent?), or else it should be less expensive. The materials used in it, as well as any possible R&D or design costs, can't justify the final price being as high as it is. That relation between price and what you get for your money was surely a major consideration in my choice of only one star (and the fact that it arrived damaged was also obviously a factor).
I'm sure many are sent out without being bent like mine was. But I'm also sure mine isn't the ONLY one that's sent bent like that. So, it's a gamble in that respect (with the general flaw noted above being there for anyone, of course, even if not bent). And given the cost and the hassle of returning it, I didn't find it worth returning. After having it for some time, though, I wish I had returned it right away anyway, while I still had the original packaging handy. At this point, it'd be too much trouble for too little of a refund, although my experiences with having to return items to Amazon have been positive thus far (they've sent a prepaid label, and I just had to repackage the item with all its original contents). This thing didn't come with anything, by the way (no box around it, no paper other than labels stuck onto it that I three away). So if you get one of the bent ones, I recommend returning it ASAP, before you throw out (recycle, hopefully) the stuck-on labels, plastic bag it comes in, and the box & packaging materials.
I should probably note that at first, I tried putting it in all of its various possible orientations, since you can make a few different surfaces the "bottom." But having it upright to the greatest degree, with what's the side when looking at the default (1st) photo of it as the bottom, it didn't sit very stably. It was just too unstable to use that way, imo, and it's also not all that useful because when in that orientation, paper or file folders in the upright slots would have to fill the slots in order to keep the contents from folding down or bending due to their own weight, and being vulnerable to coming out of the slots entirely. Thus, while they claim it can rest on the sides, it's not really a viable option.
Last, in case you hadn't thought it through, note that if you have this on a desk (as opposed to a shelf, for example), you either can't have anything in front of this unit if you want ot use the bottom shelf or shelves, or else you have to just plan to not use the bottom shelves at all. That makes the design a poor fit for your purposes, of course. If you can't use the bottom shelves because they require you to not use the desktop in front of it so you can access those shelves, then there's surely another organizer that's better designed for your purposes. This design really makes sense only as a shelf unit, imo, since those bottom shelves take up not only the space of the unit itself, but also of any desk or tabletop area in front of it so you can put things in the bottom shelves and take things out of them. I actually didn't think that through well enough, which is why I mention this. I had to create a block (stack of books in my case, which I can't use now) to elevate the unit high enough so that I could use the desk space in front of it since my space is too limited to give that space up.
And if you do get one of these, good luck getting one that isn't bent irrecoverably upon deliver like I did!
We have it configured to stand vertically, since the organizer's footprint is smaller that way. Setting it as in the photos allows you to stack small pads of paper or other office supplies on top of the horizontal slots.
