> EXPEDIT / Is it sturdy?

I am planning to use several Expedit units in my living/dining room, including the large 5x5 unit and the TV stand.

Assuming I assemble them properly, and they really sturdy? I don't want them to be wobbly at all or have any sway to them.

Any experiences with these?

If these aren't sturdy, are the Billy bookcases any better in that regard?

Re: > EXPEDIT / Is it sturdy?

Welcome to IKEAFANS, megahurt.

I only assemble these pieces and so don't deal much with them assembled and loaded up, but I have a lot more confidence in a properly assembled (and anchored) Expidit than Billy. Of course, "really sturdy", "wobbly" and "any sway" are all relative terms, but I'd still go with Expidit.

we have the expedit tv storage unit, and I have been very impressed on how sturdy it is. I was unsure when I bought it, especially for the price, but its been awesome!
