    Nice large shelving for cds but hard to build

    The shelving is a useful addition to my apartment, but it took two of us four hours to put it together. I may be inept, but he isn't. We attached it to the wall without the back panel so that the wall color would show through, which looks nice. Added reason: adding the back panel involved 48 fasteners! So it became even more attractive to skip it. Fastening the unit to the wall at a corner gave it the rigidity it needed so that the back panel was unnecessary. I would only recommend to someone who likes the frustration of building this type of furniture.

    I needed a new cabinet for my expanding collection of Blu-rays and console games, this was a great replacement. Holds all kinds of items included boxed PC software. Quality materials, everything fit together as it should, no missing parts or missing hardware. Stands taller than what I had, looks much more substantial and stands without any concern about shelves bowing or the cabinet tipping over. I checked out a number of cabinets online and couldn't find anything that matched the price and build. Was very pleased to find this in stock at a local BB store. You won't be disappointed.

    Just bought this unit the yesterday, 9/25/13, and so far I love it. I had 2 of the smaller Media Towers from Atlantic that could hold about 120ish DVDs/Blu-rays each, but my collection of anime has grown to the point where they didn't cut it anymore. Pros: Decently inexpensive. A good quality cabinet will cost a couple hundred dollars. High quality ones will run over $1000. Easy to assemble. An electric drill is recommended although you could get away with a screwdriver if that's your only option. Took me about 30 minutes overall. Looks great. Nice black finish, recessed shelves, and the interwoven design on the backing give it a very nice look. Cons: Feels cheap during assembly. Once it's all put together, it's nice and stable, but I found myself worrying throughout the construction if it was going to break or fall apart. Worries unfounded! If you need a lot of storage, this unit's the way to go. It doesn't jut out far from the wall, sits 5' tall, and is about 3' wide. Originally I was going to order a more expensive model from bestbuy.com, but it was unavailable. Glad that was the case because this one is looking great.

    A Great Shelf

    I really love this shelf. I've had it a little more than a year and I'm getting ready to buy another one. This is the largest capacity media storage unit I found even remotely in my price range. It holds a ton of movies, games and cd's and it looks good doing it. The pieces feel pretty flimsy when it comes out of the box, but once it's been assembled it's a sturdy enough unit. I love that it anchors to the wall because I've a 4 year old who could easily pull a shelf down on himself. As long as you take your time and put it together carefully, I'd definitely recommend it to a friend.

    Good, Not Perfect

    For the price I was paying, I was not expecting too much. The overall build quality of the wood is acceptable. And like the other reviews does state, it is a little wobbly when you're assembling it. I did assemble myself, but it would have been so much easier and faster with at least 2 people working on it. Once completed, its okay. It does the job it was intended to do, and it looks nice (Check photo). The only complaint I have the wood quality, I can tell its a little on the cheap side, but I'm not too worried about it breaking down in the middle of the night. Any questions about it, you can comment below and I'll be happy to reply.

    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.

    This was a good purchase. It was easy to put together. I'm not the most mechanical person and it took me about 30-40 minutes. It holds all of my media and looks very nice and sleek. It doesn't come out very far from the wall. . only the length of a DVD. I didn't use the wall anchor because I have mine against a brick wall. On carpet, it's still very sturdy.

    For the price, it'sn't a bad unit. Looks nice, holds plenty of media. Two issues that knocked it down a bit for me. First the base isn't very wide, so there isn't a lot of stability. Luckily I don't have kids or pets so I didn't need to use the anti tip bracket they want you to drill into your wall. If you're going to be using this on thick carpet, you may want to install that bracket. Mine is on hardwood, so it'sn't bad. Second, instead of making the packaging big enough to go with full height side pieces, the unit's split in two and requires cam locks and dowels to make it's full 5 foot height. For some, if not put together tight enough, it may break at that joining. I would have preferred and been willing to pay a little more for, full height sides. My only complaints. I like it for the money.

    Great case if you need large capacity on a budget.

    This unit is not the greatest thing ever, but it is not horrible. I paid $79 out the door (I used a coupon). This thing almost holds my entire collection, I have about 500 DVD/Blu-ray movies. Assembly took about 45 minutes. I actually like the fact the movies hang off the shelf. It makes it easier to pull them off compared to other units I have owned. It seemed sturdy enough after putting it together. For those complaining about how sturdy it is, I don't know what you expect for $80. You would need to get into the $200-$300 range before you would be able to purchase anything made of solid wood. And it still would not have the capacity of this unit. As long as you make sure to follow the instructions, and make sure everything is lined up perfectly, then it will hold everything just fine. I don't see this lasting through a move, unless you move it separatelty. Keep that in mind when you purchase. For $80 it was an awesome deal, and I am very happy with the price, capacity, and appearance. Could it be sturdier...yes. However, is it were sturdier it definitely would have been much more expensive.
