Plywood v. melamine rack

Still working on my rack design. I'm a little concerned about the difficulty of working with melamine (also the weight), but on the other hand, I'm worried about the sagging factor with plywood. If I use plywood and have shelves 34" wide, will I have a problem with sagging? I'm not certain I can fit a deeper unit (with the boxes long way in) in the space I have.

How hard is melamine to work with, for a novice carpenter? Will I have a harder time if I use melamine for the shelves and plywood for the sides?

Thanks for any and all advice.

Jeannie
