They look great in the showroom, but I wonder how they last in day to day use?
I quite like them and from what I've seen from other peoples', they seem to stay together.
Ikea Billy bookcases rock. They're cheap but they do the job.
Their furniture is fine as long as you don't move them about too much. I have had several pieces of furniture and other items from IKEA and they have been fine.
we have some IKEA chairs that we bought about 6 years ago. they look like new despite having been to NZ and back*...
*cos we went to live there, not because of a problem with delivery.....
I had an Ikea kitchen in my old house, all appliances fully integrated with no problems with different brands fitting, they all have the same measurements for integrated stuff.
And by the way, when I sold the house two years ago, the very first person to view the house on the first day it was advertised bought the house because of the kitchen. I wish I still had the pic's to show you.

Agree entirely! they're phenomenal. We have 7 of the tallest widest version and they are fully laden with as many books as we can cram on the shelves. None of the shelves have shown any signs of warping and we must have had some of them at least 8 years and moved house several times. Need another billy - must stop buying books...
That'll never work - just have to buy more billies!!
