    GOD like storage

    Okay, so 20 YEARS ago i bought two of these in silver, and they've held up so well i bought two more. (in black - silver only avail now in 6ft or taller size) I use them all for storing games and controllers, and they cannot be beaten by any other storage system. They last forever, seriously, 20 YEARS? Are super sturdy, and have a small footprint.. if you're a hardcore gamer looking for storage, you found it. It holds original cartridges, Sega CDs and PlayStation 2 CDS Like a champ.. with the shelving adjustable, you can size to fit it all.. holds new system PS3/4 AND XBOX/360/1X clamshell cases like nobodys business, as well as controllers going back to the VERY beginning.. amazing how many controllers you'll wind up with after 20 years+, holds em all neatly..And if you need to expand in the future, they will still be around.. I see several people complaining the shelves are too many, well. In the past there were less shelves and more dividers, now there's more shelves with the exact amount of dividers at 2 per shelf.. More shelves is the better deal by far.. same price (sans inflation) More shelving is for CD storage aficionados i assume..

    I've been looking for more CD/DVD shelf systems for the past couple months as I already own the different carbon fiber ones that the stores sell. Ones from Walmart are too cheap and flimsy so I found these units on here. The system looks good on the website and once assembled it has a nice look as well. All of the shelves that came with mine weren't even which detracts a little bit from it. Assembly was relatively painless. Adjustable feet give you flexibility. And it fits in tight locations where you might not have a lot of space. On the other hand, I wish it was deeper. Had to adjust the feet to prop the front up as it tried to fall forward when empty. The unit doesn't feel as sturdy as I was hoping. It's holding fine at the moment without the anchors in the wall but I may end up putting them in. Bought this one as I was considering the larger version of it as well. I think I'll keep this one and look at getting one of the extra large carbon fiber units later on.

    Piece of junk

    I had high hope for this "storage rack", but it was not to be. Everything from instructions to design and assembly were a huge failure. The design might have worked as a thesis on paper, but reality was far different. Overly complicated... Illegible pictograms for instructions...assembly was a nightmare. The four uprights could only be finger tightened; shelf locators could not be aligned propery; shelves would not level out nor would the feet. Left it for garbage when Best Buy would not refund or even store credit it. Unable to give it zero stars. It was worth $70 just to be rid of ot.

    Perfect CD Rack for large collections.

    This CD Rack was a perfect buy for my CD Collection. My CDs were previously stored in a much smaller rack and three shoe boxes. This rack now holds my complete CD Collection. It is very sturdy, and I like the separators that came with it, which I use to group my CDs by Holiday, Country, Instrumental, Early Years, Singers, Pop/Rock, Orchestra, and Miscellaneous. I would recommend this CD Rack to any music lover with a large collection such as mine.

    poor quality and not worth the price

    The stability of this media DVD rack/stand was very poorly constructed, wobbly and not usable for its intended purpose. Beside inadequate installation instructions, the support connectors for the shelves, which were suppose to be moveable, were not able to be repositioned due to being locked into place. The rods were too thin and light to hold the stand together. It kept falling over. The time it took to attempt installation was too long for a simple media stand rack. This product was returned to store for a refund

    I was looking for a unit that would help me get all my CD/DVDs organized and in one location instead of all over the house. I ran out of room on an on-wall shelf unit and needed extra space. This unit fits perfect in the space I need to have it in, it's sturdy and holds a lot of items. I can't talk about the ease of assembly because I had my daughter put it together for me while I was at work. No complaints from her about assembly. I may just order another for my DVD's alone since this one has only CD at this moment.

    This would be perfect for someone who is just starting their collection, or doesn't have a large amount of movies. It was a bit of a pain to assemble, but once I starting putting movies on it, I realized it was not big enough to meet my needs (no fault of the product). It is sturdy, but I would not trust it around pets or small children; definitely utilize the strap (included). I had to disassemble it pretty much after I put it together, and ended up returning it a few days later.

    More cheaply built than others.

    This stand appears to be made to the same standard as others, that is, it appears to have one inch posts. It does NOT. The posts are half the size of most others available elsewhere and as such, the stand is flimsy and prone to turning over if anything of any weight is placed on top. If you purchase this, be SURE to put books or something heavy on that bottom shelf.

    This whole stand is really solid metal and pretty darn sturdy! Shorter than I thought it would be, but it fits a lot of CDs on it. You can fit both CDs or DVDs, but you have to decide on where you place the shelves to maximize what you want to use it for. Decent for the price. Comes with a strap to strap it to the wall to make it extra safe. You don't want all those heavy metal CDs and pron to come crashing down on your curious, two year old.

    The shelving arrived in great shape, and once I figured out how to put it together, it went together quickly and easily without needing tools. Once together, it is sturdy, though I do recommend using the included wall attachment straps to keep it completely stable. I set mine up for five lower shelves of DVDs and two shelves of CDs at the top, and it looks and works great!

    CD Rack/Multimedia Rack

    The rack is well capable of holding 400 cds. The design is sleek but I would have preferred for the arms of the rack to be thicker. When the rack is full it can look overwhelmed by the cds/dvds. The rack does have some sway/movement when touched that can make it appear flimsy. It is easy enough to put together. You just need to figure out the spacing between the shelves for cds or dvds.

    Since all of my other equipment is black, this multimedia shelf fits right in! Since the shelves are adjustable, the can be spaced for CDs or DVDs. They are also very sturdy, once assembled. I would highly recommend these shelves.

    The diamensions shown are misleading. That is the floor space required for this storage rack (8" x 26"). The actual size of the shelves is almost 6 inches deep (front to back) by 22 1/2 inches wide. That is usable storage. Nice design and putting it together was fairly easy. Just wish I had ordered a larger size. But I am please with it.

    Bought this stand for DVDs. After receiving it and putting it together, first I realized all 8 shelves do not fit. the only way to fit all 8 shelves would be to store CDs. Second, I realized it is not big enough for all my DVDs and future ones I will buy. Bummed to say the least.

    I use this rack for paperbacks rather than cd's. I wanted an industrial look, to go with the exposed brick walls of my loft-style apartment in an old textile mill. The rack is somewhat smaller than I expected, but easy to put together, and sturdy enough for the purpose. I may buy a few more.

    This product is extremely durable, easy to assemble and take down when moving. Adjustable shelves. Clearly designed to last unlike the particle board variety. No tools for assembly required, shelves include a backstop... Simply a great product. I even bought a second one.

    I needed a rack with greater capacity than the older wooden racks I own. This rack is used entirely for storing CDs. Sturdy build. Designed to fit CD cases and not let them get pushed through the back of the shelf. The best CD rack I have seen. I will probably buy another.

    Searched for the perfect dvd stand. Came across this one and is perfect. Extremely sturdy. Ordered another one as well. Only thing is when assembling, you need to measure whether you're using blurays or regular dvd's. Only was able to use 7 shelves on one of the stands.

    Just what I needed for my 400 plus DVD.S and plenty of room left for me to buy more at Best Buy at a great price. My product was a more than easy assembly with great assembly instructions that a first grader could follow.

    Difficulty putting it together. The frame didn't square up, so I wasn't able to use the last shelf properly. To readjust shelves I had to use a hammer to get thrm off. So I chipped the matte paint. I wouldn't buy again.
