I found this rack well designed and fairly easy to assemble with minimal tools. The only thing I am uncertain about is a sheet of instructions describing the use of the marker to cover any scratches or marks and the referenced marker was not included.
Thanks to the magic of this functional and neat looking media tower, I was able to stash away my ever-gowing CD collection with relative ease. The tower isn't difficult to assemble though it does take a bit of time and effort. Amazing how so many CDs can fit into such a compact unit.
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and sturdiness of these units. I got them in black, so I can't speak to the faux-oak finish, but the black is quite attractive. The units are very easy to assemble and the shelves are easy to adjust.
