Rated 5 out of 5 by babeegirl fab bookcases @ a fab price
We were looking for bookcases on many different websites, I never even thought about Asda Direct. We were also looking for tv cabinets, which is why I ended up on the Asda Direct website. Anyway, we found the tv unit we wanted & placed the order, then as an afterthought, i had a look for bookcases, & came across the "smartprice" bookcases, & it looked great for what we wanted, so again I placed the order! When the bookcases came we were really impressed with them, they were so easy to assemble, quite sturdy, held more books than I thought they would,& they actually look fab too. A great product at a great price. Would recommend to friends & family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CathJ Great purchase
Recently I bought asda's smart price bookcase, because I needed a bit of extra storage for my room and also needed something to put my tv on.. so the bookcase was the perfect option! I ordered online, it arrived quickly at my local store and was easy to pick up. I'm a student, so I was looking for cheap but good quality and this was perfect for me; it was easy to put together and I had it built in about 15 minutes! Now it's holding my tv, dvd player, aerial and a huge number of books, it's sturdy and it looks great - very happy with my purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gingerella Fantastic Bookcase!
This is an excellent Bookcase, both in value and looks. Very simple to put together, although ideally, it's easier when there are two people helping with the assembly. I could not believe how sturdy it was for the price paid. Only one little grumble - the backing of the Bookcase is not very strong and would have looked better done in a "woodgrain" effect to match the main Bookcase. Great Value, extremely quick Delivery and excellent Company to deal with! Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Looking4value Smart Price Bookcase
My first smart price furniture buy. Am pleased with end look for the price. Nice colour, not too orange a beech like some cheaper beech effect can be and feels solid when assembly is completed. The black spacing tool for holding the tacks when putting the backing on looked very handy for starting off the tacking and getting the spacing correct. Is deep enough for ring binder folders and just deep enough for lever arch file size but I would only use the bottom fixed shelf for that much weight personally, just incase. Nice that both removeable shelves are adjustable height. An upgrade on the backing would be the icing on the cake and I would pay a little more for that. Be carefull of fingerprints on the white side while constructing but once its tacked on it is fine. Feels solid. Considering another and the cupboard to match as the dimensions look similar on the site for both. Makes nice office furniture.

I bought this to store files and catalogues as I am now working from home but only had a small area to put it in.
It was easy enough to put together - no major DIY skills needed :)
My only slight niggle is that as i needed to store A4 files you can't actually have both shelves in as there isn't enough height.
That aside it looks good, matches other furniture bought elsewhere, and seems to be sturdy enough without being attached to the wall.
(my other comments are the courier tracking service was great and the customer service call centre was a pleasure :)) )

I must admit I was sceptical about buying this "Smart Pric2e, the cheapest bookcaes I could find on the internet. BUT, I'm pleasantly surprised at how how it turned out. The whole thing took appox. 15 minutes to put together. OK, so it's only a bookcase, but it's the irfst one I have put together. There was nothing missing and the instructions were easy to follow. The finshed bookcase looks really good, and you would never guess it was so cheap. Now for my next challenge!

Rated 5 out of 5 by deadgirl Fantasic Value For Money!!
After reading through the other reviews, I wasn't expecting much for my money. But to be honest I am over the moon. We bought similar bookcases from a well known furniture retailer and they were nowhere near as great as this one. We bought this one for our six year old to store her ever growing collection of books and will now buy quite a few more for the rest of the house. Another great Asda bargain!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ginger90 Excellent value for money
Bought this for my uni student son's bedroom. I was wary of buying 'value' furniture but I'm very glad I did now. The shelf unit is very sturdy and took me about 15 minutes to put together. Instructions were easy to understand and straightforward. As an added touch I stuck wallpaper on the backing board before nailing it on so it would match the wallpaper in the bedroom and I must say it looks amazing now! I would definitely recommend this product and have now kitted the whole bedroom with the same range; wardrobe, chests of drawers, at a bargain price!
