Flimsy and unbalanced
I was surprised at the poor quality of the shelving. I measured and marked a wall and put the shelving up to the wall before putting the screws in and it looked very lopsided. I tried again, re-measuring the placement of the markings I made on the wall, and they were fine. I examined the shelving and noticed that the top bar looked crooked so I measured both the left and right lengths and one side was over a centimeter taller than the other side! That might not seem like much but for a shelf of this size it makes a big difference in looks, and anything round placed on the shelf would have rolled off. I already made the purchase (of three, and ALL are lopsided) so my workaround was to put one of the screws a centimeter higher than the other one so I could keep things on the shelves without having them fall off or having people think my sense of balance was off.

I loved these shelves
We had a small but tall closet in our apartment. It seemed like it was either a coat closet or a space to keep a tall vacuum. While my vacuum fit in there perfectly there was no shelf in it I couldn't store anything else. We bought these shelves and my husband installed them using proper anchors. After that I was able to store a jar of powder laundry detergent, a box of oxi clean, fabric softer etc I made a little laundry shelf out of it. I used them for 5 years while we lived there and they never came apart or fell.

Great for my small laundry closet
Recently moved to a small apartment with a closet designed to hold a stackable washer/dryer, but not much else. This shelf fit perfectly along the side. I was not able to mount into studs, and it is still ably holding over 2 gallons of detergents, plus other miscellaneous supplies.

Great size but not for heavy items.
I needed a smaller size shelf for my laundry room. This fit perfectly, and though it says it can hold up to 33 lb, I added an extra (3rd) bracket in the middle because it did not seem too sturdy. I had a bottle of detergent and and few other things on it, not nearly close to the weight limit.
