Given my past experience with VonHaus products, I expected a little better quality
on 10 May 2017
Don't get me wrong, this is a niftly little shelf, it looks good and holds exactly what I need to hold with no issues, but it does have some issues.
The glass attracts dust, a lot of it. This is expected as the product description mentions this.
Now to the cons;
1. The main one for me is the slots that the glass shelf goes into doesn't hold them perfectly in place, by that I mean, once it's slotted in, you can still move the shelf around with very little force, I would have thought it would be harder to do. If somone walks into it or somehting, it might even fall out and damage itself or the things it's holding. I think i'm being overly critical but it's still in the back of my head.
2. the plastic just seems very tacy, I was expecting a much more durable material. With this, you can't actually tell when looking at it, but I installed it so I know.
I would recommend getting a handy man or someone proficient in drilling into walls to get this shelf fitted. I looks nice but needs to be maintained. It is relatively cheap but that doesn't include the cost of getting it fitted. It is a good quality shelf but it could do with some fine tuning here and there.
I'd recommend it even with the cons.
