I shopped all over the internet for a media storage solution for music CDs, and this was the hands down winner. It is sturdy and well made, attractive, and perfectly designed for this purpose. I was particularly impressed that it came with nine shelves, enough to completely fill it with CDs, with no wasted space. Most media shelving I've seen includes only enough shelves to fill the unit with DVDs, causing considerable wasted space in between shelves if it's used for CD storage. Assembly was quick and straightforward, with easy to follow instructions, all parts supplied and neatly packaged -- again, including enough support pegs for all nine shelves -- and only a very few simple tools required. I suspect I'll buy another within the next year, and I'm very happy to recommend it to others.
Nice value, great appearance ad good workmanship. Went together as easily as expected when you are putting something of this nature together. Would highly recommend this product to anyone who needs an inexpensive yet nice looking CD Tower.
The shelf is heavy duty, sturdy, and holds a lot of DVDs which are some of the features we like. However, we ordered it in black and found several blemishes throughout, plus when assembled, the underside of the shelves and top piece are visible and they are not black which detracts from the look. The manufacturer sent a black marker to "deluxe" the blemishes which did not work but we would have needed one the size of a small child to help. If you're looking for a temporary solution for storage or are putting the shelf in a dark corner where it won't be seen, then buy it, otherwise pay a bit more for better quality.
THIS IS A VERY GOOD PRODUCT FOR PRE-MADE ASSEMBLY, SAUNDERS IS A BETTER PRODUCT, THE VERY BEST I HAVE SEEN IN 20 YEARS, HOWEVER THIS PRODUCT BY PRE-PACK IUS MUCH BETTER MATERIALS THAN MAINSTAY, AND ALL OF THEIR OTHER PREDUCT NAMES, BY FAR., MAINSTAY IS SOLD BY WAL-MART USE TO BE A DEPENDABLE STORRE WHEN THE WALTONS WERE THE OWNERS, NOW I SEE IT GOING TO THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE LIST FOR QUALIRY PRODUCTS AND SERVICE, WARRANTY CUSTOMER SERVICE. EVERYTHING IS POOR WITH WAL-MART OVERSTOCK CONTINUES RO ALWAYS GIVE THE VERY BEST VALUE FOR YOUR DOLLAR SPENT IN ALL MANORE OF SALES AND CUSTOMER SERVICE. STILL NO BETTER COMPANY TO BUY FROM ON LINE TO YTHIS DAY, AND I HAVE BEEN A CUSTOMER FOR 14 YEARS.
I ordered the Slim Barrister Tower in black for our living room to store all our media (cd's, videos, music, etc) and it is perfect. The instructions were really easy to use, I finished putting the whole thing together in less than half an hour. It is the right size and everything is organized and neat now. Looks more expensive than what I paid which is great :) It is very sturdy and we've never had any problems. Would definitely recommend.

The only reason I didn't give this product 5 stars is because of the description and hardware issues. It stated that it came "assembled" and it certainly doesn't! It wasn't difficult to put together, just time consuming. Make sure you have a hammer and at least one screwdriver handy to put this together as well. Overall I'm happy with the product, although I have a mixture of blu-ray disks and dvds in there (tv box sets, etc) and it doesn't seem to hold as many as I was hoping.

I chose thisprint - particular tower after driving myself crazy for months. I am very pleased with the sturdiness and the finished look of this piece. It looks like I paid a lot more for it. It has a relatively small footprint - small enough that mine is on my upstair landing - and it looks great! The only thing that wasen't clear in the description is the fact that 'standing' cds/dvds can get lost in the far right/left corners - behind the front panels.

This DVD shelf holder arrived in perfect condition, was quick and easy to assemble and looks great. It does not look cheap or fake. The finish on the wood is lovely and it matches my other furniture perfectly. In fact, I liked the one I ordered so much that I ordered a second one and now all of my DVD's are in one place - side by side in my slim barrister towers.
