If you have a collection of heavy text books or coffee table books, this is the bookcase for you. The truck driver and I could not lift this case into the house and we are both pretty big guys. Had to open the box and take some of the pieces out to reduce the weight. I am sure the shelves will never sag. The directions were helpful and assembly went smoothly, however, it would have been even faster if the individual pieces were labeled. My only devaluation is that because this is laminate, there are a few small edges on which the press board shows through. Otherwise this was a great purchase and recommended.
I regularly create binders for my greyhound rescue group and find that this is a dependable, sturdy, easy-to-use hole punch. Instead of a few pages at a time, I can punch holes in up to 40 sheets of paper very easily. I like the gel handle also - it helps my palms from getting sore and tired!
