Sauder Palladia Library, Heavy, labels missing but not hard to asemble

Each one dinged up from shipping, about 4-5 hr to assemble. I bought three of these which took about 4-5 hours each to assemble. Every one of them had some kind of shipping ‘ding’ in it and once you get it all out of the box trying to return is a hassle. I don’t like the top piece which covers the top 3. 5 inches of your books making it difficult to remove them. They do look nice, but plan on buying stain to cover the dings.

This bookshelf unit is not super high-end, but it is not priced that way either. It is a good product for the money, solid and nice-looking. It matches the other sauder palladia products well. The unit arrived with some shipping damage, but amazon got this squared away with a replacement swap quickly. My wife is happy, so i am pleased.

This bookshelf is quite beautiful. It is very heavy and sturdy. As other commenters pointed out, we did also have one broken piece. It was one of the rounded decorative moldings, so i was able to finish putting the piece together and now waiting for the replacement part to arrive. Called sauder and they were wonderful. Glad i had read reviews and knew that other people had been successful with this. 5 hours for me to put this together by myself, but i am pretty good at putting this kind of stuff together.

Just like the picture and perfect for our office. The unit took a couple of hours to assemble, but we love the way it looks.

Extremely nice library bookcase. Purchased 4 of these units to make a library wall. Extremely well made; all the holes were in the right places and the right size, all hardware was supplied and of good quality. They take a while to assemble, but the instructions are good, and the hole placements in the parts keep you from possibly mistaking one part for another, during assembly they are very heavy. Strongly recommend fastening to the wall with hardware supplied, as it they tipped; not a good thing.

Cherry color is dark, more like mahogany. The instructions were pretty good and everything matched up and fit well. No trees were damaged in the making of this product. But a comparable product made out of real wood is close to ten times the price.

Heavy, labels missing but not hard to asemble. As many reviewers mentioned, the package for pretty heavy. But the individual pieces were brittle. While arranging the pieces for assembling, two pieces collided with each other and one of them got chipped. Many pieces were missing labels, but the pictures on the assembling instructions were helpful in the guessing game. The pieces stuck to each other very well and the final product looked so professional. I might buy again from this manufacturer.

The bookcase looks really nice. I didn’t have any scratched pieces. Assembling the unit took about three hours (by myself). Most of the pieces were not labeled, which made it take longer to put together. The only thing i don’t like is the fold seam down the middle of the back panel. Once i get my books on the shelves, you shouldn’t be able to see it as much though. The shelves sit on small pegs that can easily be moved up or down.

    Great looking case and sturdy. The only problem i had with it was the shelf. I ended up removing the back (that i nailed in) so i could reposition the self and it still scratched the inside. It was just frustrating that it was so tight. I’m all for the exact measurements, but there’s no wiggle room.

    A classic looking book case which feels durable and stable. The assembly takes an hour or two, but the directions are not too hard. Packaging was pretty beat up on arrival, but thankfully the product was not damaged.

    It looks as i expected, maybe slightly darker than the picture but the picture obviously shows it in bright light. The instructions were easy to understand though it did take a while to put together. I gave it only three stars though because it came with three chips on it, two about 3/4 inch long and the other a little bigger. One of the chips was on the front of the lower shelf, so very noticeable. There were also several scuff marks. I would have returned it if it had been for a main room in my house but as it was it was for keeping my granddaughters toys in, so i’m sure it will suffer further scratches and scuffs over time, which meant it wasn’t worth all the hassle of sending it back.
