    Just what I needed

    I needed something to store my games/blu-rays on with the next generation of video games looming on the horizon. I wanted a shelf that could hold a sizable amount of cases and maintain it's stability. This Element Media Rack fit the bill perfectly. While I had some issues with the assembly (holes not lined up properly for screw placement) they were very minor. Being made out of wood, the bars with holes a couple centimeters off the mark proved to be a non-issue. When I finished putting it together it had a slight wobble when tapped. As soon as I started loading games on (I started from the bottom shelf) it regained it's stability. I don't know if this was a minor design oversight or if I screwed up the assembly process. Either way, I'm pleased with the result. My collection of current gen games + 4 bluray films(maybe 58-62 cases all together; I'm not sure) takes up almost 2 shelves. I have three shelves open for next gen and whatever blurays I grab in the future so I don't expect I'll need to pick up another shelf soon.

    Sturdy, stylish, easy assembly: Great product

    Great way to store your media: has enough space to accommodate Blu-Rays, DVDs, and CDs. Extremely easy to put together, stylish, and is still fairly sturdy even when fully loaded. Also has a very slim profile so it doesn't take up much space at all, making it perfect for dorm rooms and other cramped spaces. The media sits at a slightly upwards angle, so you can read the spines of at least the top 3 shelves while standing, and taking out a piece of media only takes a simple tip downwards. The sides are also "windowed" so you can see the cover art of the media bookending each shelf, which is a nice touch. Great price too. I now have two of these and would highly recommend them.

    The build quality of this rack is very nice. It was easy to assemble, and it feels pretty sturdy dispite having such a small frame. It holds quite a bit compared to all the other media storage shelves and racks I've owned. It can hold a wide variety of media- everything from a CD to a Vita game to a 3DS game to the typical blu-ray and DVD size cases. The only issue I can think of is you have to be careful about your stuff falling off of the shelves if you forget to move the bookend type thing over. It's completely avoidable as long as you remember to move it over- CDs are more likely to fall out than movies or games. If you forget to though, expect everything to come timbling down off of that row- it has a cascade effect.

    I bought this item to separate out my children's games and DVD's from my collections. The units setup is fairly straight forward and has a nice overall appearance once assembled, however the design of the holders for the dvd's is poor at best, they work simply by a friction method on the rods and the holes drilled in the wood are slight larger than should be so you don't get a good hold on the racks rod to keep the dvd's or games from falling over. In my opinion I would spend a few more dollars and get a better unit made by Atlantic, I have an older unit I bought years ago that is no longer made and is superb compared to this item

    Great Rack

    Simple and affordable. I really like how the dividers are "built-in" as opposed to being removable. My previous rack of similar design had removable dividers that couldn't seem to stay in place. Once they failed, my Blu-rays and games would just tip over and fall through the back. This rack is solid and I haven't had that issue at all. My instruction booklet was missing the last page, so I did make a mistake and use the long screws to connect the bottom feet when I really should have used them to connect the top and bottom halves of the rack. The overall build was easy. It doesn't come with any tool, so you'll need your own screwdriver.

    We just moved and we decided it was time to organize our huge pile of DVD's, audio books, and VHS tapes. We ordered five of these shelves on the Best Buy website at a great sale price. Once they were assembled and loaded in our office we decided to order two more. The only problem we noticed was that the sliding holders do not stay in position while loading the racks, so the items kept falling out. Once loaded they are fine though. We now have a neat uniform library.

    Worthless piece of junk

    I can't believe BestBuy sells something so poorly made. I drove over to the the Wintergarden, Florida store and the people there were friendly and helpful. However, this product is absolute junk. It broke when I was trying to assemble it. The wood is very thin where it is predrilled on the ends for assembly. The screw broke through and it is all in the garbage can. I will still shop at BestBuy but will be more careful what I purchase in the future.

    Good storage, but has slight balance problem

    If you're looking for a decent multimedia storage unit that will hold your goods, but not take up too much space, this media rack might work for you. Be warned, though--there is an issue with balance when you load it up, as the unit can lean to one side when it fills. A grounding strap with a wall screw is included, but depending on where you have the unit, the strap might not get used. It's easy enough to put together (you need a Philips-head screwdriver), and does well once you find a place to put it where the balance issue isn't so pronounced.

    An alright stand if you have the films to fill it.

    I bought this because I had blu-rays stacked up on top of each other all over the place. It does hold a good amount of movies I have to give it that. Assembly wasn't difficult and didn't take that long. The only real gripe I have is that for blu-rays I highly recommend already having enough to fill up the rack. I found in my experience that if a shelf wasn't filled movies just kept falling down and then falling out of the back. The stops for the shelves don't really do much to help. If you can get a better rack I would suggest it.

    I really like this stand. I have a media tower that holds the movies horizontally and things are constantly falling out of it. This has slider bars that keep the movies from falling out. It is a little unsteady if you don't get everything screwed together evenly on both sides but with a little tweaking it worked just fine. I will be purchasing another one to put the remainder of my movies in it. People in previous reviews stated it was too small for boxed seasons, but I found if you put them on the top shelf there is no issue. Definitely worth the money.

    Blu Ray Stand

    We bought this to hold all over our video games. It definitely holds a ton of bluray size cases which is exactly what we were looking for! We are actually thinking of purchasing another. There is a bit of assembly required when you get it. All you will need is a Phillips screw driver, they supply the rest. It is very sturdy once put together and doesn't lean forward once loaded with games or movies!

    Obviously anything made of wood is not always going to be accurate with size. One of the metal poles doesnt necessary stretch far enough to fit evenly with the others. Kind of crooked when product is finished, which was irritating some just to make sure the poles fit in the holes right, they shouldve been able to be screwed in as well. Im glad it didnt cost me a lot to get this, definitely the price fits the bill with quality, maybe even be too much. Will find out if I can still work with this or get another one.

    My biggest complaint with this product is the shelf where the movies sit is too smooth. If the movies are not sitting perfectly vertical the bottom tends to slide out from under then and then they fall out the back. If I could fix this problem I would love the rack.

    Not the most sturdy shelf in the world

    I needed some extra shelving for my overflowing Bluray and DVD collection. Putting the shelf together was slightly easy, but the last step of putting the base feet on the shelf and the screws stripped into the wood right away without much pressure. I probably wouldn't recommend this shelving. I'd find something better that's metal and more sturdy. This will probably fall apart at some point.

    This is my second media rack by Atlantis. I purchased the exact same media rack over four years ago. It is full of DVD's but it is still sturdy and I haven't had any problems with it.... I went to two different BestBuy Stores until I found the exact same one. It was easy to assemble, only took about 30 minutes. Its a great buy, good quality and the price is great....

    I was looking for a smallish DVD rack to fit in my living room and came across this one at BB. The price was within my budget so I bought it. It was a bit difficult for me to put together by myself (I have carpal tunnel and have to wear wrist braces 24/7) but I got it together and it's doing the job I bought it for. I am pleased with my purchase.

    I bought this item to store our pile of 200 or so DVDs/Blu-Rays. The item is very sturdy, even on carpet against a wall. Each row also has dividers if you like to separate genres. Overall, great design that is aesthetically pleasing. Assembly is required, but fairly straight-forward. Make sure you price match it though in store. You'll save about $20.

    I was very disappointed in this product. Great idea just poorly executed. The DVDs kept falling through the slotted area. One piece sides would work better, this unit leaned to the right from the middle up. No amount of adjustments could keep it straight. Returned it to the store. Still looking for a descent rack.

    The product is a good value. The only thing is that it doesn't seem very sturdy. I put DVDs on and if i bump it, all of them come falling out of the back. Once the row is full, they hold each other up, but half full and they slip and slide. It's inexpensive and serves its purpose.

    Poor Design; Unstable.

    As a previous reviewer posted, DVD's and CD's fall through the back. If the shelves are not full (as is the case when the rack is being filled), the cases fall on their sides, slip beneath the metal rods, and ALL OF THEM fall on the floor. I am discarding mine and would not recommend this item to anyone.
