Sam's Club has a similar model for about $62, called "Gorilla Rack".  I was 
pleased with
the one I bought:  It is very sturdy and the metal pieces have a nice 
powder-coat finish, and no sharp edges.

Out of a sense of nostalgia, and because I needed a small shelf only 12" deep 
to fit behind
the furnace, I got one of these.  Definitely pretty tinny, but at least I got 
it not to
wobble by not tightening the bolts until it was in its final resting place...
