Love itJamesGreat shelves5
Not the same quality as it wasLovey0101I have old version of this shelf and I love them! Stable and safe. They are making them now slightly differently but makes big deference in overall quality of the product. Metal track that’s attached to the shelf, that connects shelf to the pegs is different now. They fall off easy making it almost impossible to build shelf. Also whole thing it’s swaying now so much that you will be worried for your safety. Make sure to buy cross brase! Why would they change something that worked perfectly into something that looks like 5 year old design?1
Very easy to assembleCherylW99This shelving unit is very easy to assemble. You can place the shelves anywhere as there are no fixed positions. Adding extra shelves is a breeze. (Which you can purchase separately). You absolutely need the cross bar for across the back tho. This shelf is sturdy enough to stand alone because of its depth and width, however ikea does recommend fastening it to a wall. It is all wood construction.5

Change of manufacturers and quality?!ElizaDI am a fan of Ivar shelving and have been for years, but the quality on the latest batch of shelves was so poor that we had to return all 22 that we bought. The problem is with the metal brackets along the sides of the shelves- they fall out very easily and are sometimes bent to begin with. It's also now very difficult to get the pins out without having the whole metal bracket pop out.1
