Size: 7-Shelf/24-InchColor: Medium Oak
I needed sturdy, tall bookcases that were about 24" wide for my study. I ordered 3 of these, although not from Amazon. The man who delivered them for a freight company was clearly furious about the weight, was extremely rough with the delivery - breaking the pallet on which the boxes were resting and damaging the back panel in the bottom box. Also, that box has one fewer shelf peg than it was suppose too. Maybe Safco will replace it, but the company I ordered it from cannot.

The shelves themselves are about what I expected, laminate over particle board or some such material. Any screw going into the laminate tears or ripples the laminate a little. The instructions are all pictorial with no words causing confusion to this assembler who has never seen a cam screw before. But, the assembly after the first one went much faster since I had learned all the tricks (for instance, when a cam screw won't turn to lock into place, pushing the pieces together might not work but pulling them apart *slightly* often does.)

I might well have spent more money to buy nicer shelves if I could have found them. But a trip to every furniture store in town turned up no tall, sturdy shelving 24" wide. These definitely serve my needs and, if I can obtain the last shelf peg, will definitely have been worth the hassle, even though a couple more phone calls are in order (to Safco for the peg and to the freight company to complain about the driver - if they can't handle freight this heavy, why do they accept it?)

Size: 7-Shelf/12-InchColor: Mahogany Verified Purchase
I used this in my walk-in closet when I did a complete renewal. I use it as a support for shelves on one side and a close pole on the other. It is heavy and solid and is exactly what I needed. I am pleased with the results. I was looking especially for a TALL bookcase and this one is 7 'tall. They are hard to find especially tall and narrow. I would buy it again.

Size: 7-Shelf/24-InchColor: Medium Oak Verified Purchase
The shelves fulfill the function for which I bought them. They were not difficult to assemble, although looking ahead in the instructions resulted in a smoother assembly because some of the steps were better done in a different order. Glue should have been supplied with the wooden dowels. One of the dowels was so puny that it only acted as a deterrent to motion out-of-plane, and did not hold anything together. We used that one for the upper front trim. We didn't have any glue so proceeded with care, and the shelves appear to be staying together. It was a nice touch to supply screws for attaching the hardboard back. Most cheap furniture is assembles with staples or tacks in that area.

I am using the shelves for my collection of cookbooks, which fills most of the shelves. The shelves are easily bearing the weight of those books, although we are considering attaching the unit to a wall. It would be possible to overturn the unit in the forward direction because of the height relative to the small base, although in normal use it does not sway in any direction.

The delivery was troublesome and the unit arrived with minor cosmetic damage, but all parts were present and usable so we decided to keep it. We thought we might not do even as well on a second shipment given the state of the shipping box.

Size: 7-Shelf/24-InchColor: Walnut Verified Purchase
I love these bookcases! I wanted to maximize the available height and width of a corner of my living room so I got two of these units. Each 7-shelf unit weighs 95 pounds, so getting them upstairs in my condo building was difficult. I like that all shelves are adjustable; there is one shelf that you need to place somewhere in the middle and it anchors to the vertical ends, but you can put that anywhere you wish, which is a great feature allowing me to make the best use of the space. I've assembled many shelf units using this cam system, so that was easy. When you screw the long posts into the top and bottom of the ends, be sure not to twist too hard. I did that on the first one I put in and twisted the head right off. Luckily, it was on top and in the rear, so it wasn't a problem. For the others, I stopped as soon as I met resistance and had no other problems.

The finish is what you would expect from veneer particle board shelf units but it looks very nice. One shelf had a blemish on the underside but that went on the bottom. The backing of one unit had one side scratched up, apparently from shifting contents during shipping, but that went toward the wall. The backing is thin plywood, not cardboard, and it's finished on both sides. I ordered the walnut finish (because it was cheapest at the time) and it's darker than any walnut finish I've ever seen (closer to mahogany or espresso), but that's not a problem for me. I now have all shelves full of books and everything is sturdy and looks good.

Size: 7-Shelf/12-InchColor: Cherry Verified Purchase
The delivery of this item was fast, but after constructing it I realized that the holes on the right side panel were not drilled in straight, and matched up halfway down the unit, so the shelves would be completely crooked (leaning forward) if I used all of the shelves provided. For the price (and the shoddy construction) this shelving unit should be much less expensive.
