      It's a DVD shelf...what more do you want?

      Posted
      TheOldSkooler

      Okay, so I did a lot of research before buying this thing. I read every review on it on this site, and having already bought a similar item once before, I decided that if I ran into problems like some of the people say they had on their reviews, I could just return it and exchange it. So I went in, picked it up, and brought it home. I unloaded it, expecting pieces to be unorganized, or incomplete. All the hardware was separated by letters, and even had individually perforated trays. Every shelf was given a letter as well. The instructions were simple. They were easy to read and to follow. The only tool required was a screwdriver...Phillips head. I was able to unpack this thing, separate all the pieces, and put it together, all by myself, in roughly an hour. It did help that I had a power screwdriver though. So, the positives? It holds a lot of media. It's big, and fits right where I needed it to. The construction was very easy, and the instructions are simple and do what they are supposed to (tells you how to put it together). Some people question the stability of this unit. Yes, it's made of more simple materials, but they are well supported. The unit doesn't wobble at all, and only forcing it to shift made it tip back...but it's leaning against a wall anyways, so no problem. And on top of that, it comes with a wall mount. If you want something stronger, you need to pay for it...which brings me to price. Just over $100.00 after tax. I've bought many pieces of furniture similar to this, and contrary to what many say, this is actually a decent price. If you want a sturdy oak cabinet or something, They are double, even triple the price of this unit. Sometimes even more. The negatives? I only really have a couple qualms with this thing. First, yes there are a TON of screws that go on the back to hold the backing in place. Most things like this use tiny nails, this actually used little screws. It is rather monotonous and was the most time consuming part of putting the thing together, but that backing is not coming off...ever! Second, the overhang of the DVD's. I don't like this look personally, but I understand why they did it at least. It puts less space between the shelves so they can put more DVD's in a 73 x 40 space. So, I don't like it, but I understand it. But that does bring up a sub point...the shelves are shorter than any other DVD rack I've purchased, So a couple of the taller DVD box sets don't fit in the shelves, and they aren't adjustable. so, complaint 2.5? Shelf size. So, in the end....No, this is not hard to put together. If you can read, and know what end of a screwdriver to use, you can put it together by yourself. Having a second person would speed up the process, and I definitely recommend using a power screwdriver to save time. If you have a stable level floor, you will have a stable level storage unit. It's not top of the line, but if you just want an inexpensive (relatively speaking - approx. 20 cents per DVD) way to store DVD's, this is it. And if you really are concerned with the stability after assembly, mount it to the wall. This does exactly what is says it does...It stores multimedia.

      Doesn't hold up to what is advertised...

      I have to preface this by saying I am hardly an opinionated shopper. If it serves its purpose, I'm generally happy. The quality of this product is so poor that I actually searched for this product online with the specific intent of writing this review, months after the initial purchase (which I will explain below). I think where I went wrong is that I am one of the few people that actually exercises the limitations of this product. My entire DVD, CD, & video game collection fit in this piece of furniture, and with room to spare; it has an incredible amount space. Cheap building materials & poor engineering really ruined the experience. Each cubby hole is surprisingly shallow, leaving most of the DVD case hanging out. That said the foundation of the entire piece is a large, but low quality, plank of particle board. As I said earlier I actually exercised the limits of this product, and used the top shelf to house my CD's as illustrated (300+ in my collection). The weight of the jewel cases at the very tip-top, mixed with the extremely malleable particle board, made the furniture slowly warp and lean forward. Less than 6 months after the purchase I had CD's and DVD's falling everywhere. I did not find the construction of this product particularly difficult or confusing. This product held more than I expected, and I was pleased that I was able to organize my ENTIRE collection easily, which is important to me. If it would have worked out, the price would have been okay, but as it stands there is no longevity to justify the $99 asking price.

      Great stand, but there are different versions

      Posted

      I wanted to consolidate my media storage situation at our house. So, after some very careful consideration, I chose this product. I purchased one tower at my local best buy, and set it up that night. The build went surprisingly well, and I had no issues. Assembly took about an hour (most of the time being installing the back panels). The stand is great, very slick looking, and feels sturdy enough once fully assembled. One review I had previously read mentioned one of the non-adjustable shelves is tall enough only for CDs. For the stand I purchased, this shelf was in the middle of the tower. However, as I soon came to find out, not all versions of this model are the same. Let me elaborate: My media storage needs warranted a purchase of a second stand. I purchased another stand from another local best buy (closer to my work) and when I got it home and started unpacking it, I immediately noticed some differences. The wood had a different texture (my original stand had fake woodgrain in the black wood pieces, the second stand was just flat, smooth black wood), the hardware set was different, the pieces were slightly different (the shelves of the original stand were slightly thicker), and the instructions were different. Worst of all, the CD only shelf of this model was on the top shelf, while my original stand's was in the middle. If you were to put these two stands next to each other, the shelves then would not line up, which, if you are OCD like I am, this would be infuriating.Thankfully, I did not completely destroy the package and was able to put everything back nicely, and was able to exchange the tower for a new one, only to get it home to realize the third stand was the same as the second. After some investigation, the model I originally purchased had a copyright date of 2013 on the instruction manual (which I had saved), while the third tower had a copyright date of 2011 on it. Both items have the same Manufacturer model number, and the same best buy SKU. Buyer beware: if you are looking to purchase two (or more) of these towers and care about consistency, make sure the packages have the same copyright date on them (by the time I had purchased the second tower, I had already disposed of the original package, and the package of the third tower had a copyright of 2010, though I had saved the instructions of the original tower, and compared the manuals) - alternatively, you can make sure that the instructions have them same copyright date/are the same. Thankfully again, I was able to repackage this item and intend to try and find the "2013" stand at one of my local best buys to exchange.

      Kind of expensive, but I love it!

      Ignore the price for two minutes here and let me explain this product in detail. It is a very large piece, however, it does exactly what I want it too, which is display my vast collection of DVDs all at once. And when I say large, I mean that it is fairly wide, and REALLY tall, once assembled it stands about a foot and a half below ceiling level. (so it's about 6 feet tall) But the oddly pleasent thing about this tower is that it is surprisingly slim lined. It is definitely an eye catcher, but it comes out only about 8 inches from the wall (and that includes the slight DVD overhang). Now onto construction...... OMG this was a beast! since it is so big the construction was fairly awkward...I did it by myself in two and a half hours, but you can get it finished much easier with two people (and probably cut an hour off your time). The directions take a few minutes to digest, but once you look it over a few times it's really pretty easy to follow. All the hardware comes in a large blister package marked by letters and that was fabulously easy to follow, and it helped keep everything separate while you worked. (if you need screw R then pop out screw R and none of the other screws will fall out and get mixed up) All in all, it was more time consuming and awkward (for one person) than it was complicated. Once it was set up it did seem a little unstable, but!!! This tower is meant to sit up against the wall and it has some hardware that attaches it TO the wall so it will not tip over! So, I would say that as a stand alone piece...be careful, it will want to fall over (its over 6 feet tall!) but if you use the brackets you'll be golden. Most of all I love that I have room to grow with this tower. I have well over 300 DVDs already and the fact that it really does fit 530 DVDs really makes it a good investment. I would definitely recommend it to a friend. (It'd just be nicer if it was on sale)

      I was very hesitant to purchase this item after reading some of the reviews. Some people said it was too fragile, too hard to put together, instructions were hard, so on and so on. Thank god I didn't listen. The storage cabinet is fantastic. I had it built in under 45 minutes by myself. The look of the cabinet is fantastic. Compared to the prices of storage cabinets out there this is a bargain. I do aknowledge that the cabinet is not made of solid material (I am able to pick the whole thing up alone after it's put together) but that's the least of my concern. All the pieces came together great and after placing the wall mounts on the side of the cabinet, it's very sturdy. It's been 2 weeks since I set it up. I have a collection of games, tv shows and blu rays and they look great in the cabinet. The only thing to look for is that the top shelve is smaller than the others (they are all fixed shelve's and can't be adjusted). To give you an idea, I placed my Nintendo DS games on the top shelve for a perfect fit. All in all this was a great purchase and I plan on getting another one once this one fills up.

      I had initially purchased one of these units to hold the collection of music, movies, video games, and general computer software. I wasn't expecting much out of the cabinet after reading the reviews and really didn't want to waste time and money if the reviews proved to be correct. In the end, I was happy enough with the purchase to go out the following day and get another one. Below are bullets on what I found. 1. You have to be extremely careful not to over tighten the screws with the particle board. It is very easy to split the particle board. 2. The build quality varies on the units. One of the units I had didn't have the pilot holes drilled for the screws, the other one seemed to split easier than the first. 3. You do not want to use a powered screw drive to put these together. While your arms will tire out with the screwdriver, save yourself the aggravation and damage to the product with a regular screw driver. 4. I found the instructions very easy to follow. There are a few areas that may cause confusion if you aren't careful, but overall the instructions are quite good between whats written and diagrammed. When all else fails, common sense pulled me through one area (which side the single hole vs double holes went). 5. Two people are pretty much required when attaching the back panels. I had someone hold the unit upright while I screwed the panels in place. If I didn't do this, I guarantee it would have fallen over. 6. You need to secure this to a wall, otherwise it will fall. In my case, I modified the two units as I wanted them closer together than the side mounts would originally allow. Basically, I attached the units to each other with a longer screw (going through the wall mount) and placed the second mount to the top of the second unit. The outside edges are mounted at the sides like they were intended. This made the units much more stable.

      People Are On here reviewing the product that i dont think the majority of them bought. its a great shelf, granted the assembly process can be a bit on the downside of things. seems flimsy at first but once back board is on its holds pretty firm.. ATTENTION ITS NOT DESIGNED TO BE A MIDDLE OF THE ROOM SHELF IT IS A WALL HUGGER AND HAS WALL BRACKETS FOR A REASON.. The Pros: Great Durability Once Against Wall And Wall Mount Screwed In Holds A Great Amount Of Movies. Great Color-Blends With Anything. Affordable The Cons: The Very First Shelf Can Only Hold Cds Nothing Bigger Then A Cd Size Case Hassle Putting Together But Once First Part Is Up Second Is The Same. Dvds DO Stick Out A Bit. But A Movie Collector Will Know It Allows Us To Grab Them With Ease. Other Then That This Product Is Amazing And Im In love With It.. Couldn't Find One That Held Over 600 Movies With Out Paying Crazy Prices. Target Had One For $99 And Only Held 200 Movies Blahh.. Smae Price Better Quality GO GET ONE! 9.5/10 (Cause Of Put Together)

      Does what it says... but what a pain!

      Oka, where to start? I am a female and have put many bookshelves and cabinets and furniture together in my lifetime, so I thought this would be easy-peasy... I have never been more frustrated, among other things, with this shelving unit. The instructions were easy to follow as was the initial build/assembly. The problem I came across was the fact that the top part and the bottom part would not stay together! I was putting on the backing (holy Moses, that's a lot of screws!) and got to a certain point towards the center on the two pieces when they flew apart and one of the top shelves busted. I grumbled a bit and "secured" the two pieces together again, fixing the broken shelf as best I could. Then I started back on my journey to the top. I had less than a million screws to go (in all honesty, it was probably about 10) when the top part fell off again, this time falling on top of my head. Luckily it didn't break anything on me even though another shelf broke a little bit, and the only thing I got was a headache on top of the mental one I had from assembling this stupid thing. I wanted to throw this thing out the window, but I was too invested... and I actually need this shelving unit. With over 400 dvds and blue rays and then games from Xbox and wii, I needed something that could hold a lot. So, with that in mind, I "resecured" the two halves once again and fixed the broken shelf. I finished the backing and proceeded to pick it up to set it against the wall... which is where my loving husband thought it'd be nice to ask if I wanted any help... ummm... Lol. I screwed that baby to the wall (the shelving unit, not my husband), organized all my items the way any OCD would and called it a day! It was an awful put together and took way longer than it should have but overall it holds the amount it says... and that's the most important thing. But I don't even want to think about the idea of me moving it lol... 3 stars because it ultimately is what I needed, just wish it wasn't a literal pain to put together.
