I own ten of the white 5-shelf and five of the white 3-shelf "Beginnings" bookcases--some of which I bought and assembled close to twenty years ago. These simple bookcases are sturdy and versatile, allowing me to match and add on to complement and complete a full library with wall to wall books. And Sauder's parts department is the best in the business. One of the most dependable American-made, ready-to-assemble products I've ever purchased.

Where to begin, well the top of shelve isnt finished, the predrilled holes don't line up. Very little to no stability when standing up. They begin to lean over time. I wouldn't take these as a donation let alone buy one again. These really need to be recalled. SAUDER quality has gone down hill.

Horrible design and quality

By

Comments about Sauder Office Furniture Beginnings Cinnamon Cherry Five Shelf Bookcase:

Look....I know this isn't supposed to be solid and heirloom quality furniture, but I've purchased RTA furniture for decades and even the 'cheap' stuff used to be so much better. I still have a full desk/hutch that I've had for approx. 30 years, which I believe was Sauder, and it's still in fine condition. I used it in jr/sr HS. This bookcase won't last 5 months before something goes wrong. My kids won't have this through the life of their school yrs, for sure. Even the density of the particle board has degraded. And yes....there can be quality differences in particle board. The veneer is thinner. The backing board is basically poster board, not even as thick as cardboard. Furniture is expensive. I didn't want to spend too much, esp. because I needed a whole room of it. If you 'got what you paid for'.....ok, but this is almost like throwing cash in the fireplace. Will stick with something else from now on.

Don't buy this

Comments about Sauder Office Furniture Beginnings Cinnamon Cherry Five Shelf Bookcase:

Model 421878 crumbled on assembly. At one point the instructions say to carefully turn over and attach safety strap. Thereafter the assembled part of the shelf is uneven due to the base projecting farther than the top. Which makes it difficult to attach the rest of the shelf and trying to adjust it made the pieces fall apart, tearing one panel apart and making the whole assembly useless.

Shoe Shelf - Model 415542 (Sauder Beginnings Soft White)

Comments about Sauder Office Furniture Beginnings Cinnamon Cherry Five Shelf Bookcase:

I bought 2 of these and added to my collection of white shelves I am using as shoe shelves in my shoe room. Wishing Sauder made add-on shelves for this particular collection. The one I saw was for a 27" shelf, I need 24.5" shelves at least 4 more. Help!

Awful value for an already cheap product

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sauder Office Furniture Beginnings Cinnamon Cherry Five Shelf Bookcase:

The unfinished top shelf looks really ugly to anyone of average height or taller. I know it's unrealistic to expect an impeccably handcrafted piece of Mennonite made furniture at this price point, but I do expect more than this. I'll be returning it and then trekking out to ikea where the only difference in cost will be in the gas it takes to get there.

Looks terrible.

By

Comments about Sauder Office Furniture Beginnings Cinnamon Cherry Five Shelf Bookcase:

I have bought numerous Sauder bookcases in the past and thought they were very good value at the price point. But these look terrible. Immovable shelf and top of bookcases are not laminated on both sides. So particle board is visible on top of bookcase and beneath immovable shelf. Yuck!! Luckily purchased from Amazon and they issued immediate refund. DO NOT BUY IF APPEARANCE IS IMPORTANT.

Disappointed

By

Comments about Sauder Office Furniture Beginnings Cinnamon Cherry Five Shelf Bookcase:

Was halfway completed when I realized the top of the bookcase had the unfinished wood exposed. I figured it was a mistake, so I checked the directions and came online and saw that it was made this way. Took it back to the store considering it was flimsy construction and the top would be impossible to clean with the pressed wood once it became dusty.

Comments about Beginnings Cinnamon Cherry Five Shelf Bookcase:

The overall quality of the book case is very nice. However, I wish the backing material was something more substantial than cardboard. It is very flimsy.
