    Poor quality materials

    The wood parts are thin and made of particle board or similar material covered with what a paper like material which makes the wood parts very weak and easy to break if you are not careful, which happened to me.

    I didnt like that the wood was so cheap and it was really hard to put together. Wood broke when I put a screw in.

    Holds a lot of movies, but be sure when you pin the back on you are exactly in the middle, otherwise the nail will go through the side and knock a chunk of particle board off...

    The materials were not very sturdy. After the unit was together, if you attempted to move it the shelves shifted and the unit easily can apart.

    Bad media holder

    This product is very poorly made with cheap materials. More times then not when putting this together the "pre drilled" holes were not there. When screwing in the screws to get the basis of this shelf together the wood was cracking and coming apart. We got it almost all put together and realized that also the DVDs hang over the front of the shelf. We have to return it basically put together and frustrated because there was another error to the making of this. The wood part to screw the screws into was finished black so screwing In the black background was almost impossible.

    Good looking but made of poor materials

    Overall, a good looking DVD shelf with lots of capacity. However, it consists of lots of very thin shelves made of poor quality recycled wooden material (not a solid wood or even plywood). They are extremely easy to accidentally break or damage. Given that you have to use five gazillions of screws and bolts to set it up, the risk is way too high. The only well made part there is the back wall imitating carbon fiber sheet and looking pretty good. If this shelf was made of plywood, it could be a great product. Given the price, the manufacturer could do much better.

    Very flimsy and cheap material. I would avoid buying this shelve. It is WAY overpriced for the quality.

    We bought this because it was the same style of one we bought years ago and were excited to have matching storage units. Not the easiest thing to put together, and materials are of ok quality, but we used extra glue to keep it together. Our first one has lasted us 6 years now, so hopefully this new one will be as good.

    The item goes together easy enough and does its job of holding CDs, DVDs, etc. Materials are marginal at best. Would recommend anchoring to a wall for stability.

    Wish I would have read reviews before purchasing. Cheap materials and very doubtful it will be sturdy enough for items. I will only keep this if my husband makes it much more durable.

    Beware: Two pieces of pressboard broke off during the assembly so I returned it to the store. This is made of very flimsy materials. I expect more from products sold by Best Buy.

    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!

    Saw this at the store for $51 and loved the look and storage capacity so I bought it immediately. Instructions aren't the greatest but I was able to build it pretty easily but once I was done I noticed the top half was leaning quite a bit so I screwed the back in and screwed it to the wall and it still leaned very bad, so I took it off the wall and it instantly fell on me. The plastic peg that connects the two pieces is just too short and can't hold the weight. I took it back right away, do not buy.

    I had recently purchased the biggest version of these from Best Buy and thought it was great and was looking for a slightly smaller one for another room so I thought this would be perfect, but it was a considerably different piece of junk. This one assembles differently and requires a lot of cam locks of which many broke and many broke holes in the wood as well. I tried contacting the manufacturer to at least get replacement cam locks, but they were non-responsive. Don't buy this piece of junk.

    Hard to assemble. Not as tall as previous shelves were. The alignment of the back is difficult. Compressed wood splits where screws go in.

    It will work to store my expanding DVD collection. When putting it together one of the locking devises spun in the particle board and will not fully lock into place. Would have returned it but it is in an out of the way location so I will be the only one that notices. Holds lots of DVD's.
