Awful!Emily H.I bought two of this thing, bc i had an od version of the same thing that I liked a lot, a kallax i think it was. Thought this was the same thing, but its completely different and MUCH worse. Harder to put together, doesnt actually connect with thing that looks like a longer bookshelf. Just a massive downgrade.
Good size for my needs. Easy to assemble!!!Irina L.I bought two white Ekets 2 x 2 as the size was good for my needs. When I was reading the reviews, I was in a doubt if I can assemble it myself properly. Luckily, I found on Youtube a video instruction, how to do it "ikea eket instruction part 2". I even didn't use the paper instruction. Both pieces were assembled perfectly!!! Thank you Ikea and the person who did these video instructions.
Don’t give up like I almost did!!!Victoria M.Writing this review to help people who had trouble like me. I spent over an hour trying to align the pieces to fit, I even searched for tutorials on YouTube, and couldn’t find one for this specific model. Was very frustrated and was about to send all 4 of my Eket back to where they come from.
I took them apart and I realized the fault is not the product, it’s in the instructions. All the side boards should be numbered from 1-4, not just the first board. Essentially you would connect number one first with the sides and the pieces inside, and at the VERY END, the last piece should be the board opposite from number 1. If your last piece is the ones on the side of number 1, you will never get it to align. It took me less than 5 minutes to finish each one doing it this way, which is to follow the pictures to a tee. But Ikea should modify the instructions to be more specific and fool proof and number each side boards.
It looks beautiful and perfectly aligned when done!
Great to useJennifer C.Pretty quick and easy to build and after installing wall hangers to hang.
Like the four cube, this fits my albums good.Jeanne S.The store is hard to get around in. I felt lost and confused. Maybe better markings to check stands.
Terrible designMiriThis piece doesn't properly line up. For the price I wouldn't have bought it if I had known it was going to be such a hassle & waste.
NIGHTMARE to assemble, total garbageDaniele A.I've been assembling Ikea furniture for over 30 years for both my home and businesses and I have never encountered such a frustrating build!! I always read Ikea assembly instructions thoroughly but no matter how carefully I followed them, it was a disaster. A total loss for me as the thing was so shreaded beyond functionality just from trying to put it together that it went into the garbage because my nearest Ikea store is over 2 hours away to return its pathetic scraps. What a disaster product assembly scheme. Just go back to using screws Ikea!
Perfect size for meSUSANI had to give it 4 stars instead of 5 because they discontinued the light gray that matches the ones I already have.
Product came quickly , andDaimarieProduct came quickly , and was everything I expected , even tho I had a bit of difficulty putting it together but was happy once I figure it out
Prefect size for what we neededBettyThis piece works great in our bathroom. The corner edges look really nice. The size is perfect - not too big or too small. We use it for rolled towels.
EketBethGreat product. Easy to assemble and very flexible options for the space planning.
Clever design and assemblyGLike the large capacity despite thinner side panels (vs Kallax). A bit pricier, but everything is these days
It is a good productJahjaIt is a good product

Look for the tiny 1Alison C.Like many others I got this shelf to store records as it’s a fantastic size, and like many others I had a horrible time putting this together. I needed to use a hammer on a towel to get the pieces to align, only to discover on the last step that I hadn’t started with the board marked with a tiny “1”. I tried everything to try and get it to work without taking it apart, but in the end I had to start over. Not only is the notch for the backboard deeper in the 1 panel, but the holes for the center boards are spaced differently and there is nothing in the instructions warning you about that. I got it together on the 2nd try but the whole process took a toll and the shelf is banged up. So look for the panel marked with a tiny 1 the same color as the paint - probably making it a bright yellow sticker would be smarter, Ikea - check the alignment with the center pieces as you go - I’m not sure why the holes would be spaced differently, but it seems like another oversight - and grab a hammer
WORKED WELL FOR MY PURPOSES.mary j.WORKED WELL FOR MY PURPOSES.
DO NOT BUYGLENDA L.I'm VERY good at putting together ikea furniture. This thing was impossible to put together, I will have to throw it out. A waste of money I can't get back.
Two of the plastic piecesAnaTwo of the plastic pieces broke, I had to use gorilla glue because it was too far to go back to store.
Poor DesignWilliam M.I like IKEA. I have liked all of their furniture... until now. The single EKET squares are good and solid. This? This divided square has, maybe, half the structural integrity of a single square.
