This Sterilite 5-shelf utility storage unit is one of the finest consumer products I've seen in a long time. Being an industrial engineer, I'm not easily impressed. But I am impressed by the quality and low price (I paid $32 at Amazon with free shipping) of this unit.

Assembled, it has a nice look. The 150 pound limit per shelf is staggering considering it is made of plastic and marketed for non-industrial use. The color of the material is neutral and nice while the physical properties of the plastic are excellent. These combine hardness vs. softness for maximum static strength perfectly. (Some manufacturers make storage racks like this too brittle allowing for minimal deformation under load. However, this brittleness, inherent in the material, makes them easily broken.) Sterilite has balanced both to make a shelf hard enough to maintain form under load but soft enough to take dynamic stress without breaking.

Proper assembly takes about a half hour. There is one simple diagram on the rack banner that shows how it should be put together. No written description is given or needed as assembly is so simple, a child could do it. I do however have several suggestions for proper assembly listed below.

Starting with the bottom shelf on the floor, place four vertical posts into the four corner holes smaller side down as shown on the supplied diagram. You can try to push them in using your strength, but I used a hammer, a block of wood, and a sock placed between the wood and the top of the post to prevent damage to the post. Once placed into the top of the hole, just tap the post into place until it bottoms out. After all four posts are tapped down into position, measure the height of the posts from shelf-top to assure consistent insertion.

I bought 2 sets of these shelves for storage in my basement. They are very sturdy holding cleaning supplies etc. I read some reviews that the shelves were broken on arrival. I can see how this can happen because they arrive in a cardboard box without any padding/packing material. I was worried the cold would make the plastic brittle and easily break but was relieved that they were in great shape. These are better quality than some I have bought at local B&M stores.

Note -- this unit has **5** shelves.

I already had two of these. They're sturdy. They go together in a flash. They're strong. They're easily moved from one place to another. What's not to like, you ask? Unfortunately, there was a price increase that I learned about when I recently ordered more of them, a price increase of approximately 50% !! The nice person at Amazon customer service told me that the new price was non-negotiable.

Here is a suggestion: Take a look at the Sterilite **4-shelf** units, also available from Amazon. (Look carefully at the dimensions of each unit, however. The shelves are somewhat smaller and the height of each shelf is less.) You can buy THREE of these for less than the cost of TWO of the 5-shelf units. Check the dimensions of your storage needs and see if this alternative might be a better idea. You might also consider buying three 4-shelf units and combining the parts to construct two 5-shelf units. I think one 6-shelf unit might be constructed also, with the leftover parts (don't forget to check your ceiling height).

POSTSCRIPT #1 -- Since I wrote the above review, Amazon dropped the price about $5. This is slightly more than a 10% drop! Thank you, Amazon.
POSTSCRIPT #2 -- Check for missing parts **before** you unload the box! Here's how to do that: Put the shipping box upright. Open the top. Spread open the four flaps. Using a flashlight, look down, carefully **between the shelves.** Count the posts. For a five-shelf unit, you should count 16 posts! If you don't count 16 posts, don't open the box any further; you've got missing parts!
POSTSCRIPT #3 - I urgently needed a large number of these 5-shelf units to redesign the storage area in my basement. I finally got the number that I needed: **thirteen!

I bough this product to use in my bedroom, to hold my computer, a Xbox360, some external hdd, a NAS and an APC Power Backups 1500. Well, this product is amazing, has plent of room for everything, well constructed, but, i'm afraid to lose my computer (desk-top) sit on it. The shelf where the computer is in, began to dangerously bend and sometimes wobbles so hard, i had to move everything to the lowest floor of the shelf.
I should bought a metallic shelf or something more reliable.

Takes less than 10 minutes to assemble. The packaging says 150 lbs per shelf. It is very sturdy, however this product lacks holes on the back to bracket the unit to the wall (earthquakes). The Sterilite 4 shelf unit has these holes.

I bought a total of six of these in two separate orders.

They arrived very quickly...the first order in three days and the second in two. They are exactly as pictured, well packed with no missing parts.

They come with well written instructions that are really unnecessary. Assembly was intuitive and easy. The instructions say no tools are necessary, but the support posts are a very tight fit and you'll need a persuader to fully seat them in the shelves. A large rubber mallet would be perfect, but absent that a block of wood and 16 ounce framing hammer worked for me. They're quite sturdy, stable, and line up perfectly with each other sitting end to end along the back wall of my storage room. No need to connect them to each other or anchor them to the wall. My walls and floors are square, plumb, and level. Your mileage may vary on that issue.

They're rated to hold up to 150 lbs per shelf. Mine are loaded with boxes of paper files and photographs, several boxes of vinyl record albums, and a few toolboxes full of hand tools. Add to that bins full of camping equipment, gardening tools, and miscellaneous household items and I believe I've got them loaded at, or very near capacity. They're holding up just fine with no sign of sagging or instability.

If I need to expand my storage I won't hesitate to buy more of these.
