Rated 4 out of 5 by charismaboo cheap and servicable
My son is 14, never used a screwdriver in his life, so..heres his chance, to prove he has a functioning brain....doh!
Success, two hours later, a little tweak or suggestion there, and he has made a bookcase. In the main, this is a good cheap buy, sturdy enough, practical enough, and can be put together by someone who has never done this before!

This item is very easy to assemble, did it myself and I am not very exprerienced at DIY. Have just changed a large desk for a smaller one and find this bookcase very handy standing next to my small computer desk. It hold A4 files with no difficulty, books, DVDs, etc. and takes up hardly any room. Very satisfied with purchase. Thank you Asda.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jess1981 Great value and functional
This bookcase would be ideal for students, a young couple furnishing their first home, or anyone who wants to a good value storage for their home. The wood finish is a nice colour and is easy to clean, plus there is lots of room for books or ornaments. The shelves can be adjusted to suit whatever you want to use it for which is also a bonus.

I already had 1 book case that I brought two years ago so was really suprised that it is still being stocked. Great product!
Paid extra to get it between 7am-12pm on a saturday and it arrived at 1.30pm-2pm approx. Asda customer services was really helpful with refunding me the delivery charge and phoned me straight back once promised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SIAMESECAT WHAT EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY !!!
Full marks for this product. Good quality pieces, with clear instructions to follow.
Each piece was labelled for ease of assembly. I was short of nails for the securing of the back of the bookcase - but not a big problem. Overall - very impressive - furniture on a budget needn't cost the earth - well done...... good value for money.

Came scratched and with one side's corner chipped off. They work for my purpose and I was able to hide the chipped corner and most marks. If you need shelves, it works great. If you want something that will look great, buy something else. I would recommend this to a friend who needs shelves and doesn't want to spend a lot of money.

This bookcase is easy to assemble and stable. just fits under the eaves of our dorma bedroom, the size was very important to this purchase. This is not a piece of lounge furniture but is fine for childrens room or office. After all it was under £20. Thanks to Asda, delivery good and easy to order.
Very pleased overall.

This was a brilliant, simple piece of furniture. It was really easy to put together on my own, the instructions were spot on, all the pieces were there and it fit just right in the spot that i chose for it! It is also very sturdy, all the holes are correctly alligned and does exactly as it says on the tin!

Very pleased with this purchase. When I moved into a new home, I didnt have a big budget to funrnish it. Ac ouple of these bookcases served the purpose very nicely in the study and living room to display photographs and small books. It was easy to assemble. And for the price, it is extremely good value.

I wasn't too sure when I ordered this cos it seemed to good to be true price wise, but I was very happy that I did. I bought this for my daughters bedroom. Its perfect for the larger books as it is very deep and also the shelves adjust too. Its pretty sturdy too. So an ideal buy for a small price.

Delivered within in two days of ordering, friendly driver.
The bookcase is easy to assemble and looks more like a bookcase that you would pay £50 -£100. Very pleased with my purchase. My only criticism is the material of the back panel which is thick cardboard, however it does the job.

Delivery was a bit on the slow side and once unpacked one part was damaged, but a replacement part was sent. Once built, the bookcase is very sturdy considering the price and will hold a good amount of books or dvds. I am very pleased with the purchase despite initial problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by piersft Surprisingly good value
Easier to assemble than an IKEA Billy, and better pre-fabricated especially for the price
Not the kind of shelves you wouldn't want entirely covered in books and photos etc to hide the cheap finish, but that given, not bad looking at all for the money and surprisingly sturdy.

Fantastic bookcase for the children or small study - easy assembly with step-by-step instructions that mother & son (aged 4) could follow. Only took 15-20 mins.
Sturdy and easy on the eye - (fits neatly on top of landing) not to mention on the pocket.

This was very easy to assemble, you need a hammer to complete the whole unit (backing). It looks great as a dressing table/bookshelf as I have added baskets to contain my various hairbrushes and a mirror at the top. Feels very sturdy....and the you can't beat the price!

Very poor quality and disappointing. We bought three similar bookcases in store a few years ago and they are far superior.
We wanted to extend the run of bookcases, but even the colour is different.
The backing is just thin cardboard and the fittings are inadequate.

Great value. Very easy to assemble and looks smart in the bedroom. I have already bought 3 bookcases! Stores my books and a smart way to display my teddy bears and souvernirs.
Matches well with the chest of drawers and bedside cabinet I bought from the Smart range.

I was very happy with this purchase, not too complicated to put together as I found I had to do it, looked very good when finished, apart from the few dents I managed to put in it on assembly but that wouldn't happen with a pro doing it, looks good in our bedroom.

Good looking piece of furniture for the price. Says an hour building time, but takes literally 5 minutes! Simple instructions. Not bad looking either, simple but effective. Would definitely recommend the smart price range for anybody looking for value for money.

I bought this bookshelf for under the stairs in my living room, it was the perfect size, took me around an hour to put it together. The only complaint I have is that the backing needs to be a tiny bit bigger so that the nails go through properly.

Not a bad little bookcase for the price, although a little flimsy. Unfortunetly ours was damaged and had to go back. Returns procedure was very easy so no hassle, but decided not to buy another one. Went for a slightly more expensive version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bperc Very good value for money and easy to build.
For the price this is an excellent bookcase. I have very tall books for uni so have had to set up the shelves in a way that means only two of them are properly useable. Other then this it's a great product. Very easy to assemble.
