I bought one of these. I took it home and put it together quite easily with no issues whatsoever. I like the fact that has two main bodies attach together with the cogs in the middle, as opposed to one bookcase with 6-ft long sides. The stacking of the centershelf provides more stability. I have bought enough Sauder products to be able to pass along a piece of advice to the first reviewer: The stability of the unit is based on how well you align and attach the back walls of the bookcase. You need to square up the unit before you nail in the back panels. If you do it right, the bookcase is stable and sturdy. In short: the unit is well-designed, looks great and is easy to assemble. I actually went back and bought two more after the first one was up. Why 4 stars instead of 5, then? The shelves are a good deal for the price. That being said, the shelves themselves will eventually start to warp from the weight of the books because they are particle board. Not to worry, though: flip them over every so often. The weight of the books will straighten them out again. If done often enough, they won't bend in the first place! I have three of these units along one wall. They make the room stand out!

This is the 3rd Sauter item I've purchased recently, and the first one that was at all disappointing, although for about $74 maybe I was expecting to much. Although the composition sides and shelves are sturdy, the top and the bottom do not align perfectly, and the two main sections are not firmly connected. My biggest issue is that the fixed center shelf is only finished on the top side, and the unfinished bottom is visible. I don't understand why both sides are not finished, like the 3 movable shelves. The backing was harder to install than either of the other two pieces I purchased.

What is used to be and what it is today!
By EX SAUDER CUSTOMER
from BREAUX BRIDGE LA
Comments about Sauder Office Furniture Beginnings Cinnamon Cherry Five Shelf Bookcase:
I have over 20 shelving and tv style cabinets purchased over the last 30 years, I have the paperwork and on all along with the warranty materials. Most of these documents are so old that Sauder does not have a web site as the did not exist back in the 80's. The last products purchased 3 years ago reflect the change in that most business suffer. Charge more or make cheaper. Unfortunately Sauder has chosen the latter. Looking a the ratings and comments that Sauder truly does not care to look at the ratings. This has led me, and I am sure others, to search elsewhere for home furnishing. WAKE UP SAUDER!!! You're a disgrace to the furniture world. When I see a response to this on your website at least it will mean that someone there actually cares. Oh wait, everyone cares, it's who will stand up and say something. Or would you rather have the slogan, 'AT SAUDER, WE NEVER STOP SAYING, "WHO CARES"! '
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Realized this was garbage before I had it together
By Very Dissapointed
from Ontario, Canada
I selected one on my view rating only because less than one was not an option. I went online to review some instructions. The top half and bottom half are not very securely attached. This was a complete waste of money. The screws strip easily and if you do not get the screws in completely straight the board crumples. I understand you get what you pay for, however, this unit isn't even worth the price or even the gas or time to return it. I see the "standard" customer service response from the company indicating we would like to help and ask that you call. All that is is a "form letter" response. I do not even think anyone from Sauder's is actually reading the complaints. I manage a customer service department and if reviews were addressed like this in my business the company would go under fast. The only response or help acceptable to me at this point would be a full refund mailed to me so I do not have to waste any more of my time on this. This unit is the lowest quality of any furniture I have ever purchased and is sitting with the cardboard packaging in the garage to go out with the next garbage pickup. I have purchased shelf units in the past for less money that are better quality. This household will never purchase any Sauder's product again unless Saunders stands behind their product and refund my purchase.
from Melbourne, FL
it starts to crumble as soon as you start to put it together. The product is not steady and will easily shift side to side. Not confident that i will last long I still a receipt i would return.
Horrible design and quality
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.
Merchant response: We're sorry you're unhappy with your Sauder bookcase and will be sure to bring this issue to the manufacturer's attention. Please reach out to us by calling (800) 933-0053 if you have any further questions.

Don't buy this
By Steve B
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.

By James Fitz
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.
Shoe Shelf - Model 415542 (Sauder Beginnings Soft White)
By J Aluyen
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!
