    As Expected

    This multimedia rack was exactly what i expected when I bought it. you need a rather large space (the size of the finished rack) on the floor to put it together and I would recommend a power drill. However, it was very simple to assemble and did not take a lot of time. My one criticism and the reason it did not receive 5 stars is the bracketing to hold it to the wall is slightly obtrusive and ugly. It is very functional and is low profile against the wall not taking a ton of space and holding all our movies and tv series.

    Broken side panel :(

    I was really excited to put this shelf together to fit all of my CDs, DVDs, and Xbox 360 games, but unfortunately the one panel of the shelf broke. I did not get a chance to use it, I took it back and got a refund. I can tell you right now that the shelf is cheaply made so be careful when putting it together. If I were you I would look into a CD/DVD shelf that is a little bit thicker than this one.

    not sturdy and not recommend to mount on wall

    I'm returning this DVD rack after it fell off the wall. The rack was not really sturdy and kind of rocked when I grabbed DVD's off of it. I saw that it came with two brackets to mount on the wall after putting it together. The rack got mounted straight into the studs and when it fell off the wall, the brackets were still in place on the wall. The cheap particle board gave out and dropped the entire shelf. This might have survived it four additional brackets were supplied to even out the weight.

    Very minimalistic. Take your time assembling so you dont damage the individual pieces. Once it is assembled it is good. The shelves also accomodate the dvd cases that are slightly larger (some box sets) Assembly took a while but all the parts were included. when assembling the final step (installing the back) we started from the bottom instead of the top and we should have started at the top i think. The back is a tiny bit short. Holds a lot of dvds.

    Don't buy

    Instructions are poorly written, pieces are flimsy, takes two people to put this thing together, and then instead of being able to hammer the back on like most put together projects, you must screw it. Worst piece of manufacturing ever. See pictures for how the joint wouldn't sit flush, even after adding the cam screws, and how the shelves wouldn't sit in the grooves by themselves.

    I have now had this case for over a year and it survived moving. Don't get me wrong it is not super sturdy it is the cheap fake wood but for the price it's done it's purpose staying connected to the wall. It's a decent size but not too big like a book shelf that would take up too much room. You do have to be carefully putting it together bc of the cheap wood that. We screwed it too tight and a piece came off but it still is holding together just fine

    Trendy but not actually good

    These are very trendy with moviegoers for a quick shelving solution for your movie collection. The whole thing was too cheap for my liking and I couldn't even bring myself to finish building it. The black color was also not very neutral with other decor in your living room. Just a very dissatisfied guest with these Atlantic shelves, in my personal opinion.

    Bought this on sale and tried to put it together had some problems with the upper and lower going together exchanged it and got another one and it had the same problem so I got some help put the pexs in the upper part stood the lower part up and was able to get some help putting the top part in the lower part and was able to turn the locking pieces. Looks good and works well. Now I have a lot of room to store blu Rays and DVDs and CDs.

    Poor Quality

    Shelving is made out of particle board, which is not unexpected, but the shelves are so thin you must be incredibly cautious. Even a small bump into something or lightly dropping a part on the floor if it falls out of the box will break a piece right in half. Also, the shelves themselves aren't even the full depth of a DVD case so all of your movies hang off the front of the shelves. I would recommend shopping for something of better quality.

    My husband actualy purchased this for our new home and while he did most of the assembling before I got home I will say trying to nail the backboard into each piece was quite tiresome and intensive. there are multiple pieces and numerous area that needed to be nailed in to keep it together, but once we got it together its been in our room, holds all of ur Blu-rays and we have not had any problems with it since.

    Waste

    Don't waste your money or time with this one! I assemblied it exactly as per the instructions and the end result was very sad. The end pieces are connected together at the middle with cheap connectors and it is very flimsy. The end pieces should have been one piece instead of two. I took it back in two sections hoping that Best Buy would at least pay me for the assembly of it because it took at least 3 hours to assemble the sad thing. Total waste!

    Poorly made media storage

    I've bought three different Media Storage shelves over the years and this one is the worst! Very cheaply made of the thinnest particle board i've seen on these type of shelves. The enclosed parts were not color coordinated, too many of one, too few of another. If you can find another brand, you should buy that one!

    I was disappointed in the quality of this storage unit. It is assembled in two parts.. top to bottom. Very flimsy after putting together. I had to reinforce the back two halves with boards to be sturdy. I didn't mind the many parts, it wasn't that difficult to follow the picture directions to assemble. a couple of the locking devices were broken.

    Looks great, not so sturdy

    The overall look once put together is great and the capacity of DVDs it can hold is great as well. Thats about it though. It's very flimsy once put together so if you don't have the space to anchor it to the wall don't bother buying it. Also, the shelves are very narrow. All in all i was very dissapointed with the product for the price i paid.

    Very cheaply made, likely will not hold my DVDs. Also, the included hardware didn't fit. I called Best Buy Customer Service for help, was on hold for 30 minutes only to be hold "sorry we don't help with this" I called the manufacturer of this unit, they claimed they haven't made this unit in years and it has been discontinued, they no longer carry parts for it.

    The particle board they use in this item is very poor. I had 6 different pieces break during the assembly, by the time I finally gave up it looked like I had taken a sledgehammer to it. I can't even take it back for a refund, there is no way anyone would believe there was that much damage done is assembling and disassembling the item.

    I like the height & visability it gives me of my DVDs, and they don't fall out onto the floor.The shelves have the right depth/height, and the dividers help me separate the alphbet and keep the DVDs upright. I really do like it. I had another type of shelf that was cool looking but DVDs constantly fill out. I spent as much time picking up DVDs as I did picking out what to watch. Problem solved.

    Some reviews made this one sound flimsy or inferior. But a good friend has this very one, too, and gave the thumbs up. This was easy, if not meticulous to assemble. But it is worth it, as it keeps a sleek wall profile, while securely displaying my blurays, games, and collectibles. Make sure to use the wall mount; it makes the shelf feel like a sturdy piece of furniture.

    A piece of junk - absolute junk

    I have never taken the time to log in and write a review for any product - good or bad, but this product was so bad, I just had to share. I spent over 5 hours trying to put this piece of junk together, but the pieces kept ripping, tearing, breaking. I'm not a quitter but I finally gave up and took the broken pieces back to Best Buy. I was mad. It was a huge waste of time and money.
