There's that. I find particle board and OSB untrustworthy.
As Fred suspected, the rivet-lock ones with particle-board shelves
do tend to change over time. In a decade in a basement even with a
dehumidifier, heavy objects easily distort the shelves. They may
be fine for light-duty.
I've tried some of the plastic ones, too, 2" thick shelves with corrugation
and struts that would give the impression of strength - but over time, even
with objects only as heavy as monitors and computers, they've sagged an
inch in the middle of a yard-wide span.
