    overpriced for such lightweight construction

    Posted

    Based on prior reviews, this sounded like a decent product that might be a useful addition. Either the product quality has changed since the initial reviews, or it varies at different locations. Assembly was easy but I recommend the following during the initial assembly of the sides & the stationary shelf -- insert the back to line up either the top or bottom for the sides. Otherwise you run the risk of the sides not being properly lined up (at a 90 degree angle from the shelf) and driving the initial screws in lopsided for the stationary shelf. During the screw driving the screws should only be screwed flush with the particle board as there is nothing covering the screws and if driven too deep, they will leave pockmarks in the finished product. I ended up with small gaps between the joints in an effort to prevent over-driving the screws. After the product was assembled it had a minor wobble which became more pronounced after the unit was loaded. When loading the product with media (PS3 games, DVD & Blue Ray Disks) , I found the movable shelves bent under the weight of the very media the product was designed to hold. As it included 4 small shelves, I was able to double them for the DVD configuration and add stability and solve the bends. The movable shelves (2 stacked = 3/4 inch) are 2/3rd the height of the stationary shelf (1/2 inch) which does not have the bending issue. Capacity was Ok and met the stated expectations. I actually got a few more disks as the PS3 / Blue Ray are a bit smaller than DVD and the height of the shelves looks like it will also allow for VHS tapes. The price ($30) and the quality is horrendous compared to a $16 bookshelf (which is infinitely sturdier, but a more basic rectangular design) that I purchased at the local Wal-Mart and will hold more. Given the wobbly /poor constructed nature of this product, I expect it will end up in the dumpster in 5-6 months (if not sooner) even with light use. I went back to Wal-Mart and grabbed another 3 shelf bookshelf which I intend to use for books and to hold more media as I will not waste another $30 on a product which seems barely passable for the purpose which it was designed. The last bookcase has survived 18 months thus far and shows no signs of wobble. The back for the bookcase is tacked into place versus slid into grooves in the side boards like this product does.

    A Great Unit For Game Cartridges (And More)

    As I was putting together this storage unit, I was regretting my purchase. Not because it was difficult to assemble – it was a breeze, actually – but because the edges of the particle board appeared to be in rough shape, and I was worried that those imperfections would be visible once the unit was together. Fortunately, those slightly frayed edges are almost completely obscured once everything is snugly in place. I'm typically a picky person, especially when it comes to cosmetics and organization, but I have to admit, I'm very, very happy with this Atlantic product. I bought mine with the intention of housing my N64 collection, and it fulfills that purpose wonderfully. I like it enough that I've just purchased another for my Dreamcast, 3DS, and SNES games. When the shelves are adjusted to CD height, which gives you six usable shelves, it's almost as if this unit was made specifically to hold cartridges. NES cartridges, in particular, look spectacular on the shelves, as they fill the available space in a flush, clean manner. If you're looking for something to hold your loose cartridges or jewel-cased games, this a good way to go. It's sturdy, clean-looking, and highly affordable.

    Looks nice, Cheaply made

    The rack looks nice but is made of very thin pressed particle board with extra flimsy shelves that will surely sag within a year or two. This is a short term solution for me so it's not a big deal, but others may want to look for something built a bit better. I have older media racks (circa 2002, 2003) that are made from much stronger mdf pressed wood that have held up perfectly over the years. Unfortunately these type of units are hard to find as many newer versions (of the same brand) are built completely different with short sides that don't cover the width of a movie and flimsy shelves that sag. ***note about shipping** I will likely not order anything from best buy.com going forward as they made this a signature required delivery item without any indication and subsequently it was attempted to be delivered while we were at work. Only one attempt was made and it was dropped off at a UPS location 3 miles away (a location is .5 miles away). Very inconvenient since I have ordered items costing well over $100 that were left at the doorstep. Also every item that I have ordered from bby.com has always given a delivery date, only to have it be "delayed" by at least a day. I will simply stick to Amazon in the future for online orders.

    Great use of space for CDs, poor quality

    As many others have stated, this unit is indeed a bit flimsy, although not to the point where I think it would fall apart or anything. I'm torn between being impressed by the perfect design & storage capacity for CDs, and the build quality. I wish they made this same design but with some reinforcements. In my opinion, in comparison to other similar units which I've tried, for the price it's worth it, if you need to fit a huge CD collection in a small space. I think a few extra bucks for some angle brackets & small screws to reinforce certain areas might make this a perfect little CD rack. Tough to decide whether or not to recommend but I went with NO. I suspect that I got a unit which had been returned previously, as there was no wall anchor kit/bracket included and some slight damage to the backing board. Assembly was quick and easy. In fact, way too easy. I would much rather have more steps, more parts and end up with a sturdier unit. I'm including a picture of the rack full of CDs, as it seems every picture of this item on the web has one shelf removed.

    Perfect for twice the price!

    Saw this online last night, just needed a small, inexpensive black DVD case to sit along the wall near my home theater, and I didn't need some giant , wall-dominating, or grandiose solid-wood $150+ conversation piece. I wanted something short (under 3ft) but with decent capacity. This looked great online, and so I went down today to get it from the store. It's made of 1/2 inch particle board with a black-wood gerain veneer, but don't let that intimidate you - it is very sturdy and solid once assembled. Speaking of assembly - 5 minutes, with just a phillips screwdriver. 5 minutes after that it was loaded with DVDs in its new home, and I am loving it!

    Small shelving unit

    Not going to go into great detail on this unit, but I own two of it. Purchased them about a year apart. No one can say a thing about the space of the unit. It states that it can hold up to 108 DVDs. That's completely accurate. I've got 27 on each of the 4 shelves. If I really wanted, I could cram a 28th. These units are incredibly easy to assemble. Took me less than 10 minutes each. If you're not familiar with furniture construction, it might take 20-30 minutes. It might not be the sturdiest structure in the world, but it's also only $32. Pay the money for a solid wood unit if you're after elegance and high durability. My first one has worked fine for nearly 2 years. Bought two of them and I'm likely to pick up a few more in the future if my collection keeps growing like it does. I've got 5 different media racks and it's my favorite so far.

    While the construction of this media cabinet is not exceptional, it does end up being an effective storage solution. The tower is built out of the usual cheap pressed wood pulp, though it should have no trouble holding up to your media collection. The assembly is easy and only required about five minutes. The pieces are labeled and the instructions are clear, but the tower can be assembled without even opening them. The tower is held together by a combination of wooden dowels and screws. I was initially worried about stability, but was thankfully proven wrong. After all of the parts are together, the tower's wide base makes it stable even on carpet. After installing the screws, there are no plastic caps or stickers to hide the screw holes. The screws finish is black making it harder to spot the holes, but they are noticeable if that bothers you.

    Nice size but flimsy

    Posted

    I bought this product instead of "better/cheaper" ones because of the size; I have a "built-in" shelf, if you will, in my bedroom that's just a little over 9 inches deep. Most DVD storage units in stores are over 10 or 11 inches, so they don't work for my intended use. This shelf is slim, only a little deeper than a standard BluRay case. In that respect, it's perfect. However, the movable shelves are really low quality and don't support much weight. I don't have many BR discs so it's something I can work around. I ended up putting my heavier BR sets (the TV seasons) on the fixed shelf, which is thicker/sturdier than the movable shelves and they seem to be okay, but down the line I think I'm going to go to the hardware store and make some custom movable shelves instead.
