The picture does not do justice to this media cabinet. It looks like much more expensive furniture. The different shelf configurations provide ample storage for many CDs and DVDs. Its length and depth allowed us to put two side by side in our hallway without taking much space. The assembly on the first cabinet was challenging; the second cabinet took very little time. All in all, a very nice piece of furniture and a good bargain, too. We highly recommend it.
This was even more attractive in person than online. It was also a great deal, came fast, good quality. My main quibble is that the instructions were very difficult to follow and it was a rather complicated assembly. If you are thinking about using it for anything other than CDs and DVDs (like for books), be sure you plan only to put paperbacks inside. The narrow shelves are great, but there is not much room between the sliding door and the shelves for books that might overhang. However, it is done and looks great! And my sister wants one.
This is cute in the picture, and after reading the other reviews, it seems like a good purchase. I am not as happy with my purchase. While customer service if prompt and courteous, the unit is really not that good. When I received my cabinet, one of the side panels had a big crack in it. I contacted the company and they promptly sent out a new side panel - which I received 2 days after my request. When I opened the package, there was a very strong smell of chemical and paint. I left it outside for a couple of days for that to blow off. Putting it together was not easy, the pictures were hard to follow and it did not have any written instructions. The unit is not square, one of the sliding doors will not shut all the way. With the stationary shelves, there is no way to put books that are larger than a standard VHS tape. The shelves are about 6 inches deep - so if you want to put both books and CD/DVD/VHS tapes in it, there is only room for a book just slightly wider than a VHS tape. I did not want to send it back after it was put together, as that would have required taking it apart, finding a box, and mailing it back - which would have been expensive. I will make do until I can find something else that I like better.

This item was packaged safely to prevent damage. It was easy to assemble. It looks great. In fact it is a miniature of some bookcases we bought locally, so it ties in to our decor. I should have bought another to house all of our CDs. It seems sturdy.
I fell in love with this as soon as I saw it, I waited a few months and saved up for it so I was pretty disappointed when I showed up and it had scratches on almost every piece of wood. It was not handled with care what so ever, there are two big scratches on the top piece and bottom. If only it didn't have the scratches it would be perfect!
No need to show this review. Not trying to hurt Overstock because up until this item, we have been very happy with everything. But this White Media Center, first of all, appeared larger in the picture. Probably because of the angle it was taken and we should have read dimensions. Our fault there. But we received it and it is much smaller and thought maybe we should order 2 of them but decided it was not worth ***. The quality was poor and paint was chipped off of the front, of course. So we painted the chipped areas, which we shouldn't have to do that. And I say poor quality because the doors slide back and forth but kind of jerky. I would expect smooth glide from the doors, especially at the cost of it. We will keep it, but just wanted you to know about the poor quality of this product. Other than that, we are very happy with Overstock and will continue being members. Thankyou, ***
Like many other reviewers I was impressed with this cabinet for the price. It is perfect for all our cd cases and dvds. We thought maybe we could use it for small books too since the shelves are adjustable. It's exactly what I was looking for. Now I want the bookshelf/cabinet to match!
We have an older home that has a long narrow bathroom. We couldn't use a conventional bathroom cabinet, so I got one of these in white and it works just fine to store smaller things. One of the doors didn't slide well, so OS sent a replacement at no charge. We've had it for a while now, and the humidity from the shower doesn't seem to bother the finish or the doors.
The media cabinet was just what we were looking for to hold all our kids' video games without having them all over the room. It's the perfect size for this - but it's narrow enough I think that that's about all it would be good for. This was pretty easy to assemble (despite the directions). The only complaint is that the doors don't hang quite right and there's not really a way to adjust them. But for the price, it is a great little cabinet and I wasn't expecting it to be perfect.

Everything about this product and seller was superb except for 1 thing. The assembly directions are not as simple as they could be (we are used to putting things together from IKEA). We were able to follow them, they just could have been a lot simpler and clearer.

First, this product was missing a piece. It took 2 weeks to ship the missing part after I made multiple calls. The directions are not helpful. Actually, they are so terrible that I put it together using the pictures. The cabinet is attractive, but much shorter than the picture portrays and NOT worth the money.

Purchased this to use in a small space in our kitchen for canned goods and small packaged foods. I used a frost covering in the glass panes and painted the cabinet to match our kitchen cupboards. It is a great little addition, but if I had it to do over again, I probably would have gone a little larger for the price.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes

This product arrived promptly and was exactly what was promised in the online description. The doors fit nice and square, although the rollers on one of them are a little stiff, and it was a snap to assemble. Overall, a very nifty addition to the furnishings in our great room.
This is so poorly made, the doors are warped and dont close properly. While putting it together the bolt stripped right through the pressed board wood. The top part would not securely tighten. Dont waste your money on this piece of crap.
