These racks are pretty great. Quite durable and solid. Lots of surface area. I have bought quite a few that I use in my office and in my home. At best, you can get them for $70 on sale at a place like Lowes. This is a really good deal.

The manufacturing quality on the metal linkage pieces was bad in my set. I had to beat the living hell out of them with a hammer for many many minutes to get them the right shape to actually fit inside the vertical L bars. If you get a crappy set of links or vertical beams you will have a bad time trying to assemble.

  Is there an easy way to notice this before assembling?  Will make an exchange much easier if so

Not really, in my set the L vertical beams weren't shaped correctly and were closer to a 110 degree angle than a 90 degree one.  This made hammering the metal brace that joins the two vertical bars together almost impossible.  I spent about 3 hours beating the bars and the braces like a blacksmith before i finally got them to fit.

I have a room full of these (10+). I bought them one by one over the past 2 years at Home Depot when they go on sale for $63-$69.
Great storage racks, very solid, USA made (Chicago).

As another poster wrote, there is the occasional slightly bent piece but easy enough to bend back into shape with some persuasion. Only had this on one of my units. Also had a couple of units with extra pieces.

I got two of the 48" deep models. I ended up having to tack weld the corner posts at the joints to use them in the tall configuration. the corner post joints at the middle shelf level set on top of each other, the material is thin and would slip and drop when loaded. they are fine in the 3 + 2 shelf configuration. I also had to use a larger hammer than expected.

Sam's Club has these Muscle Racks that are way better in my opinion.
