Shamefully poor quality
Comments about Midas Six Shelf Bookcase - 84''H:
Notice that all the good reviews are dated 2012 or before. I ordered one in 2012and was happy with its quality too, and made a mistake to order 2 more this month (Jan 2016).The product has totally been redesigned, and re-manufactured. I suppose in an effort tocut cost, it has gone cheap in design and poor in quality. Now it's a text book exampleof a poor quality product.Let me list out all the surprises -1) Where there was a single board or shelf or panel, now they are multiple piecesthat you need to join together. I suppose they did this redesign so that the piece partscan be packed more compactly to save shipping cost, but that translates to more workto assemble.2) The back panel, used to be one single wood board. Now it's made of 3 narrow panels.What stunned me is not the fact that it is now 3 separate panels, but that the 3 panelsare taped together. Yes, they are held together into the backboard, by tapes!! Anotherdesign change to pack the parts more compactly to save shipping cost I suppose, but a total disregardfor quality.3) The boards, panels, etc are poorly manufactured, they often can not be lined up correctly.I could not line up the 3-panel backboard to the back of one of the bookcases. No matter how I triedone side or one corner of the backboard would stick out of the bookcase, because the 3-panel backboard wasnot made a true rectangle in shape. So you really can not line it up to the back of the bookcase perfectly.The workmanship is that bad!4) The shelves, and the panels are stained to a cherry color finish. But the stain is easily wipedoff. After putting the bookcases together, I wiped all shelves and side panels with a wet towel.The towel became cherry colored after that, and I had to throw it away.5) Many surfaces and sides were so poorly manufactured, that they were full of splinters.After I put together the 2 bookcases, I found 5 splinters in my hands, and my wife had1 in her hand. We had to painfully remove them. We had thought about wearing work gloves,but it was hard to handle small screws with work gloves on. So we ended up paying the price.I don't plan to return these two bookcases, because it was quite a painful effort to put themtogether. I hate to have to take them apart in order to return them. But here is what I haveto say:1) To potential buyers: This was a good product in 2012 or before, but now a shamefully poor qualityproduct. So, look for other alternatives or buy at your own risk.2) To officefurniture.com: Please stop carrying this product and let the seller/manufacturer knowthat products that are designed to cut corner on quality to this degree, can not be accepted.3) To the seller and manufacturer: Shame on you.

This bookshelf looks good, seems to be strong enough to hold lots of heavy books. Simple, no nonsense, pure functionality.
strong handsome-looking bookcases
The look is far beyond the price, solid and expensive-looking.
The shelves were easy to put together. They look exquisite. Real sturdy.
I received this item quickly and efficiently. The bookcase was extremely easy to assemble. It looks elegant and is sturdy. I gave this item a 4 stars because of the gap at the top of the shelf. I purchased two double bookcases at the same time and the gaps exist on both items; also, four screws were missingf from this kit, but I was able to find screws in my toolbox to make it work. Overall, though, I'm pleased with the product.
Solid, reasonably priced shelves
By Black Barth
Nice, moderate price shelves. Not solid wood, but not bad for hardwood laminated MDF. Finish quality a bit uneven on the back panels, but it doesn't show when shelves are loaded. Might have rated higher, but one piece had to be modified Slightly to fit. No big deal, but anoying!
Nice Looking Bookcase
Pros: This book case is sturdy and has an nice expensive look.Cons: The material is not as good as I expected it. And the finish is little bit rough.Overall: I'm happy with it.
Very Appealing; You will not be disappointed.
I purchased one 84"H six shelf bookcase and two 72"H five shelf bookcase and I was very impressed with this collection. I choose the Expresso color and it went PERFECT with the office suite I bought (item #OFG-EX0006 Office Port Dark Alder Complete Office Suite).It took about 1 1/2 to put them all together. That time includes taking the time to wipe them down with pledge and placing them in the area we wanted them in.The items are classic and top notch materials.You will not be disappointed! :-)
