    Holds it all

    Much sturdier than expected, the shelves are mostly held together with screws instead of pegs and cam screws like many units. The only downside is one shelf is set to only hold cds, and the middle where the two parts of the unit connect is the mentioned pegs and cam screws, which could be sturdier. Overall a fantastic unit that works very well, once mounted to the wall.

    Very cheap construction

    Bought this product and was highly disappointed. It's very cheap construction. Several areas didn't make it until I was done constructing it before it broke. Shelf won't even stand up on it's own. If you don't want to anchor to the wall, don't buy it. I would suggest you buy the smaller $29.99 unit from the same company. Bought 2 of those and was very happy.

    Does the Job

    Fairly average, difficult to put together, and very wobbly unless you attach the wall anchor. A decent media shelf unit would be able to stand solidly on its own with or without the anchor but in this case that's not happening. So if you want a cheap media shelf unit that does the job and that's all you care about than this is a fairly decent choice.

    Shelf is not stable or easy to put together.

    The man who loaded the shelf stated it took about 2 hours to put together, we thought he was kidding. He wasn't. The holes were drilled wrong. the thing falls apart unless you put it together upside down. Half the cam bolts either broke or would not go in. The only saving grace was we called the manufacturer and got an upgraded replacement. That 1 works great.

    Nice but over priced

    The package arrived and the complete unit was assembled in about 1 hour. Easy to assemble, Nice finish. Materials are a little cheap for the price. If You are handy with woodworking tools, get a 1/2" and a 1/4" sheet of ASH or oak and make it yourself for a lot less.

    It’s big and not the sturdiest if you have dvds of different size cases. So when I put it in its spot against the wall. I put one screw through the back of it into the wall to help hold it. I haven’t had any problems with it or dvds falling out.

    Perfect for a home DVD collection!

    This item has worked perfectly for my dvd collection. It is sturdy without any worries. And if you want things even more secure if you have small kids that might climb up the shelves, it comes with wall anchors to secure the shelving to the wall. The only down fall with this item is all the nails you have to put in for the backing. Other than that, piece of cake!

    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.

    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.

    This is the second one we've bought we also own the one bigger than this. If you take your time and pay attention to the instructions assembly is a breeze. I have had no broken pieces both times and have had no problems with lack of stability. I would highly reccomend it.

    not what i expected very flimsy and cheap material

    after opening the box and seeing how skinny the boards were i was almost ready to take it back already. got it almost completely together but when it came time for the two half of the boards to go together it was just not happening. so we took it apart and took it back to the store the next day. just spend the extra money and get a much better quality media stand.

    This was one of the worst units Ive ever bought. The unit is very flimsy, and not sturdy at all. Although the assy instructions were clear 2 people are really needed. Even after assembled it barely held the weight of blu rays on the shelves. I returned this item and went with a different unit. I def do not recommend this piece.

    Very poor construction, flimsy materials. Don't see how it would ever even stand up once made (yes, we got that far and really hated the process). Even attached to the wall with the screws (provided), don't see how it would hold the weight of DVDs. Don't waste your money, we returned ours. Best Buy, quit carrying this item - it is a piece of trash.

    Horrible product

    todd

    I paid $80 and never have I been so disappointed with the quality of something. I know now why you don't see this product in stores. Horrible quality! Cheap design, panels dont match up and it will fall over if not affixed to the wall. I strongly advise to look at another product for dvd or blue ray storage

    I was looking for a slim storage unit for DVDs and tried the Media Tower Elite from Atlantic and was very disappointed with the product's materials and design. It came apart before I could even use it. The particle board used was even cheaper than your standard type. I excepted a better quality product from Best Buy.

    I have 6 of these now so I must like them! They are not too bulky and easy to assemble. They will hold LOTS of CDs and a good number of Blu-Rays. If you like to keep your music and movies organized I highly recommend these!

    Very light duty CD shelf

    Assembly was easy, instructions were clear, fasteners were simple and effective. the overall materials used were extremely light in duty and I do not expect this shelf to last very long in an environment that gets much use. Although there were no alternative choices, for the cost I would have preferred some thing different.

    Junk

    • My Best Buy® Elite Member

    Terrible product. One of the cross boards cracked in half when inserted into its slots and another primary support board was the not the correct one so that the assembly came to a dead stop. Maybe I got a bad unit but it looks like getting one that is free from problems is like playing Russian Roulette.

    Good media rack for the price

    Price is good, shelf isn't fancy but works for holding a lot of movies/games. Probably a good idea to secure it to the wall-included hardware or otherwise. Wasn't hard to put together but did take a while, putting on the back surface was the worst part with as many screws you have to put in.

    Hubby and I have been looking since we bought a house of our own for something for our DVDs. This is standard, basic, holds everything (which is a lot) and is sturdier than previous shelves. We are very satisfied with it. Media cabinets are hard to find, so if you are not wanting to spend 100s, this is a good option.
