I needed a large piece for my CDs and DVDs. Looks as pictured, not hard to assemble. I am very happy with this product.Read More
I received this in one long box. It was heavy abd once opened it had lots of saw dust. But the instructions weren't bad you just have to count and identify each piece. I put it together with the help of two kids. It took a while but turned out beautiful and matches my rom. Adds a nice fill to my bedroom. I bought the black one and painted theboard underneath the top black also so it looks all one color. Turned out great hold lots of DVDs CDs and bluerays. Love it!Read More
We have a lot of CDs, DVDs, and yes, VHS tapes still - a LOT; as well as miscellaneous knick knacks like canisters of film, cassette tapes, and so on and this shallow-depth thing is just the thing. There is a lot of assembly required - a lot of small pieces - it's not difficult, but you do need to follow the instructions. However this thing STANK for about two weeks of a strong chemical factory smell - it took some time for the smell to go away. Great for organizing though and love the adjustable-ness of the shelves.Read More
Amazingly nice looking for such cheap materials. Not an ounce of real wood, but looks like nice oak when assembled. Pretty easy to assemble.Read More
Holds all my DVD and have space for more. Didn't use all shelf's yet. Very neat , front trim pieces could have been slimmer. Hides DVDs on end of shelf's,have to remove other DVDsto get to the end ones.Read More
as in a previous review the side moldings does block access to the dvd or cd that is on each end, I remedied this by using extra shelf pegs to take up the space. Unit is very sturdy and fits nicely in my hallway. I would purchase another if needed.Read More

Questions & Answers
Hello BamaFan, this weighs approximately 66 pounds. Thanks for shopping with us!
The unit is 9.5 inches deep, but how deep are the shelves?
Helloghanagirl, The shelves are approximately as deep as the width of a standard CD case.Thanks for shopping with us!
The shelves sit on metal holders and are 4.5 " wide. You will have space between the shelf and the back as well as between the shelf and the front. It works fairly well. There are "holes" all long the insides of the tower so you establish how far apart you want to place the shelves.
They are DVD depth. The only setback I found with this is that on each shelf the first and last dvd is hidden by the structure. I have three doubles and a single that are over packed with dvds so having to strain to see first and last dvd per shelf can be expected. If I remove one or two fraom a shelf there is no problem at all. I have had my media towers for over 10 years now and they look as good now as they did when I first bought them.

How to Organize Your DVDs
Many people love to collect favorite movies, programs and television shows on DVDs, whether it's a collection of classics, documentaries, children's movies or everything in between. Most people cherish their collection of DVDs, but you might not know it from the messy pile those DVDs make when shoved into a box or crammed haphazardly onto a shelf. If you've ever spent almost as much time searching for a movie as you have watching it, then it's probably time for you to organize your DVDs. Some attractive media bookshelves can be a great place to start.
Best Bookshelf Materials
It's not unusual for bookshelves to incorporate multiple materials for different features. If you haven't decided on wood, wood products, metal or glass bookshelves, look at their relative strengths and weaknesses. Look below to learn the best bookshelf materials. Wood: "Solid wood" is a common term for furniture made from lumber planks. Beware of making assumptions based on labels like "hardwood" and "softwood." Hardwoods are derived from deciduous trees and softwoods from coniferous trees; the terms don't connote their relative strengths. Balsa is a hardwood even though it is very soft, just as Douglas fir is a softwood even though it is very hard. They all make excellent, classic stock material for bookcases. Generally, harder woods are the heavier and more resistant to scratches. Still, softer woods, if treated correctly, will keep just as well as harder woods. Plywood: Made by stacking thin sheets -- "plies" -- of lumber and gluing them under pressure, plywood features grains that alternate direction for strength. Several grades are available, of differing cost. Top and bottom plies can be high-quality woods to create the appearance of fine woods, but edge veneer or molding is needed to complete the illusion. Particleboard: Wood chips glued together carry a much lower price tag than solid wood, and particleboard is denser and more uniform. It's a great choice when cost is the primary consideration. Bookshelves crafted from veneered composite boards can look and feel as good as real wood. MDF: Wood fibers, tiny chips and sawdust collected and glued into sheets form medium-density fiberboard (MDF). Low-cost MDF makes an excellent base for veneers; plus, its strength is consistent and it shapes well. Metal: There's a reason most library bookshelves are made from metal: Metal bookcases are resistant to moisture and fungus, their low-friction shelves are easier on books' bindings and metal's strength-to-weight ratio can't be beat. Their cost usually comes in below any other material. Glass: Glass bookshelves weigh more than other types, but if you plan on assembling your bookshelves only once, the style points can be well worth it. Tempered glass shelves (in wood or metal uprights, called "standards") give your home an unbeatable contemporary feel, and glass bookcases' smooth, transparent surfaces add brilliant levity to a decorating piece that might otherwise be notably opaque and heavy.

Best Bookshelves for Kids
Children's bookshelves and other kids' storage, as a rule, should be low to the ground. Furniture tip-overs have accounted for almost 15,000 childhood accidents each year from 1990 to 2007, according to the Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Children often reach for items on the top of bookshelves, causing tip-overs. With low-to-the-ground kids' storage, children can easily reach their favorite books without parents worrying about the furniture seriously injuring their child.

TV Stand Buying Guide
Lately, television consoles, stands and storage racks have been exhibiting updated designs, sporting storage for your media essentials in models that are tastefully coordinated to the rest of your living room furniture. Compact TV stands and corner TV stands are convenient in smaller apartments, dorm rooms and offices, but even large homes can benefit from the clean look and discreet presence of a television stand. As more people upgrade to lean flat-panel televisions, they are seeing that the smaller size of a TV stand is all they need. The furniture industry usually reserves the term "entertainment center" for the largest TV furniture, big enough for the television, a cadre of audio or video components and a full CD-DVD collection. TV stands tend to be smaller than full entertainment centers while still having enough shelves for a few components and some media storage. For smaller homes or for smaller rooms in larger homes a stand may be all the TV furniture you need.
