Rated 5 out of 5Â by CBinDC Great and versatile
I'm on my 4th set of Intermetro shelves, and about to get a 5th set. I previously used the plastic kind from a home improvement store - which has hollow plastic tubes for posts. These posts, and all the components, are so helpful in designing storage that fits my needs. I don't have to worry about anything sagging or tipping. I adjust them to fit exactly what I'm storing. They are easy to put together, and have been great for the last year+. I need 2 more sets, but 1 for now. (I actually shouldn't shop at Container Store unsupervised...my poor credit card...).

Rated 4 out of 5Â by NixB Good product
These poles, like the previous shorter poles I already own, are of excellent quality. However, my original poles (I've owned them for about 15 years) are a shiny chrome that matches the shelves. These are more of a matte silver and not as attractive. However, they work just fine.

I had to replaced my posts I lost when I moved. I love intermetro. They are sturdy and do exactly what you need them to do. I've had two units for years. I love that I can just grab and go. I know exactly where things are.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LindaSews I love the size ranges of these.
If you have a house with many different ceiling heights, you will appreciate these. Most other stores have two heights and that does not work for me in my house. The InterMetro shelves are versatile and easy to put together.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Eastie04 Great Buy!
I recently purchased these posts along with a few of the shelves and they worked out great. They were very easy to setup, and they hold quite a bit of weight with no signs of stress or strain. I would definitely tell a friend about them if they are looking for flexible storage solutions.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jsteele Love the intermetro and metro system. The best part of these post is the ability to have them cut to size. Gonna come in handy while organizing a utility room.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by QueensDeeJay InterMetro is a Wonderfully Useful System
This system is SO useful. Over the years I've used components as bookshelves, as an entertainment storage unit, a baker's rack. The possibilities are endless; which means the money spent is an investment -- and a safe one at that!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TecnoManUserQuiteKnowledg Post Extenders
These Posts are best quality. I had bought another brand as well as having another InterMetro unit from Cntr. Stre.. Did not realize that I was trying to extend other brands posts (InterMetro posts can be extended easily. You have to buy extenders from InterMetro as currently Ctr. Stre. does not carry item. Extenders were not fitting tightly in other wire shelf unit, so use Locktite Professional (#8) glue to glue in post extenders and it workd (let dry for 24 hrs)!
Buy Inter Metro - they are aexpandeble later as others are not!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by mau123 Crummy Paint
I got these in silver. They come as 4 bundled together. Didn't notice until I got them home that there was a large dark mark on one of them, as if from rubbing against something. On another one, on the bottom, the paint looked like it was coming off. Structurally, they seem like they would hold up. But I'm giving a 2 because of the hassle of getting an entire set of these things, shelves and casters home and now I have to take it back to exchange it? I think all of it will be returned.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by TELLTHETRUTH Not worthy of five stars
The one thing that really bothers me about the Intermetro posts is that the posts are not etched with marking numbers as a guide. When setting up an Intermetro shelving system, you should really use a tape measure so that each corner of the shelf is even otherwise you will end up with a lopsided shelf. How hard would it be for Intermetro to etch some numbers into each post? If you plan to place the posts on a delicate surface, I HIGHLY recommend purchasing a set of Intermetro protective feet. The metal feet alone can be damaging to a fragile surface. Oh, if you need the posts cut down to size for any reason, The Container Store will do so at no cost. It's a nice little thing they do.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by gtaniwaki InterMetro post design change
The InterMetro post is a hollow steel tube with grooves spaced an inch apart to hold the shelves. It is coated with durable epoxy (or chrome plated).
In an earlier purchase several years ago, the posts had evenly spaced grooves. Now, there is an extra groove every 8 inches. This is a nuisance if you are trying to set the shelf to a height where it overlaps this extra groove.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by NotPoorRichard You can get functional...
When you look for storage you generally have to choose pretty or functional. The container store is not cheap but for a 36" wide x 14" deep set of adjustable height shelves you'll get what you need.
Yes, they should come in stainless and silver, not black, white and silver. Yes, you'd prefer them to be less expensive. And yes you'd like them to have 14" under shelf baskets. But if you need something to make a nook functional, this setup works.
1/8" or even 1/4" expanded hole plate might be better than 1/2" gap wire, but just put 1/8" lexan on top if you need it to be shelfy.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by OnlineSue Satisfied (but a little room for improvement)
I bought the InterMetro Posts, 3 shelves & 4 rolling casters to set-up a shelving unit to contain my computer, UPS, a sub-woofer, cable modem, firewall and other misc. computer equipment.
Everything would have been perfect if the poles had been 1 little inch taller, but even without that inch, it's great having the bigger pieces off the floor and easy to clean/dust around. The open shelving makes it so much easier to run the wires and connect the bits & pieces to each other.
