Let's start by saying a couple of things: 1) I don't blame Best Buy at all for anything I'm about to say as I saw this specific media storage solution at several places but Best Buy had the best price, 2) this is a cheap, particle board, full assembly required piece of furniture so the bar and my expectations were set pretty low to begin with. I thought I knew what I was getting myself into as I've assembled many of these types of things in the past. This one is the lowest quality and poorest design I've ever encountered.
The assembly isn't too bad. I was done in about 45 minutes and nothing was particularly difficult, just frustrating. Some of the cam pieces were machined so poorly that I could not get them to get very tight. Also, the back piece is the sturdiest I've ever seen but putting on the top/back piece is insanely frustrating as it has 2 folds and is the largest.
The design lacks a lot. Basically you build the top half, then the bottom half, then join them. The 2 halves are joined merely by some dowels and cams. This thing is over 5 feet tall so this doesn't make for a very stable feeling result. Remember those poorly machined cams I mentioned? Well add to the situation the fact that I couldn't get a few of them very tight and, needless to say, I would never try to lift this thing by the top half. Some of the shelfs just slide in with nothing to secure them meaning that when leaned, lifted, etc they are prone to fall out. They will also push out of leaned against a wall.
The pieces are all too thin and the overall design is not deep enough. I looked before I purchased and saw that it is only 7+ inches deep, but I didn't realize how bad that would be in the end. Beyond a doubt, you HAVE to secure this to something.
Does it hold my video game collection allowing me more room for future collecting? Sure. I probably wouldn't even be too upset over it if the thing was half the price I paid for it at the time (I paid $80). Unfortunately there aren't a lot of media storage options out there and this was the best price I found. In the future I will be purchasing wood, hardware, and paint and spending a Saturday afternoon building something of WAY higher quality for probably a similar price.
