These are fantastic. Assembly barely took minutes. They're super sturdy- I have mine holding CDs, DVDs and books. I have my set of these up against a wall, but they are freestanding, not attached to the wall in any way, and I have no problems with leaning or wobbliness. I found the color to be a bit darker than it looks in the picture but I actually prefer it that way. One of the better purchases I've made in a long time.
