This is a great cabinet that can hold a lot of movies and CDs. It was timely putting it together but the instructions were very clear and easy to undrstand. It is pretty alarming when you are putting it together and it seems so flimsy and unstable but once you put the back piece on it is as solid as a rock.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Great deep brown color!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I thought it was in excellent condition.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? It's exactly as it seems in the picture and in the description.
I ordered two of these. They look very nice from 5 feet away but the materials are shoddy. Numerous nicks and dings in the finish appear to be from the factory, not from shipping. These come with fittings to attach to the wall which is recommended, particularly if putting anything heavy inside or on top. Othewise easily tips over.
I am not impressed, but the pieces do exactly what I needed them to do (LOTS of storage for media), look nice from the couch, and were all I could afford. If you can't afford better - and if your household is gentle/respectful of items as a general rule - these might do just fine for ya.
Easy to put together. First one took me (a reasonably 'handy' average female) 4 hours including set up time and figuring out directions and extra tools. Second one took 2 hours or less. Recommend soft mallet, electric screwdriver or drill, and Elmer's glue (or wood glue) in addition to the Phillips screwdriver indicated in the directions. The dowels do not fit tightly; a couple drops of glue in the dowel holes adds strength once it's dry. Be gentle with the drill so as not to overdrive the screws - the pressboard is not very dense and the finish mars/tears EASILY. Instructions indicate putting on cardboard backing last. Works better if backing is attached as soon as each part of the frame is secured.
Item is heavy; 'flexes' when you try to move it so recommend moving entirely empty with two people. If working alone, recommend moving without shelves and doors, adding those after it's in place.

I was so excited to buy this piece. I wanted something large enough to store about 300 DVDs. I ordered, delivery was fast, but it was darker than I expected and one of the handles on the door was buckling around the wood - too obvious for me too overlook. So I called Overstock and they were great. They shipped out a replacement ASAP. To no avail, the second one was of poor quailty too. The laminate on the side boards was peeling, the paint was done poorly and the quality of the 'wood' itself was awful. I had to return and ended up ordering a media cabinet from another competitor.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Darker than expected - looks almost black

This cabinet is awesome. It is exactly what I wanted; it holds all of our movies, it looks nice, and it doesn't feel cheap like it's going to fall apart. My only complaint is that after I was done putting it together (I'm no handy-woman so it took about 2 hours by myself) the top doors do not stay shut completely. This may be my fault but can be fixed with a magnet strip or something like that. Overall though, this cabinet is great and definitely a good buy!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect, the color was exactly what the site showed.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality was great.

These are very sharp looking once they are put together, although they do feel a little bit flimsy. Assembly was fairly easy. But be forewarned that it takes almost as long to clean up the mess from the Styrofoam packaging as it does to assemble the product! We found that using a brush attachment to vacuum each piece as it comes out of the box worked fairly well. Seriously, though - Overstock, listen up: Don't overshadow your awesomeness with this packaging mess! Aside from the frustrating mess, Styrofoam is so not planet-friendly anyway. There are better options! (This is the second furniture item I've purchased by different manufacturers, so I assume it's an Overstock packaging decision.)
This is by no means a "nice" piece of furniture, however, it suited our needs for stylish storage for DVDs and games. It is a tedious job putting it together and as the piece is made out of particle board, it damages easily. Do not wait to put on the back piece! It helps stabilize the entire unit... The Styrofoam packaging got everywhere while we were unpacking the pieces. With the piece was finally put together, in place and loaded, it looks really good in the space. I would recommend it with full disclosure that this is not a stellar piece of furniture that is going to become a family heirloom!
The unit fell by itself when I was in the middle of building it. The cabinet looks great but the structural design is not good at all. The CAM screws that came with it came out by even after locking them in place. The unit swayed when I was building and fell when I stepped out of the room. Luckily it did not fall on anyone. The unit is heavy but the design is poor and cannot withstand its own weight.
First of all, it came packed in a way that damaged the styrofoam packing, so there were bits of styrofoam all over the item when removed from the box. It took half an hour to vacuum all of the pieces up. They should have shipped it in two boxes since it comes in one very heavy box. Second, it might have been fine at half the height, but there are no crossbars for support, and it's a pain to put together. The doors provide the cross bar support. Even when assembled, it looks like it's made out of cardboard. It's easily warped and twisted. I would return it if I could.I doubt if I will keep it for a year. It would have been a better produce if designed better, and if it was two separate, possibly stackable, cabinets.I can't say anything good about this product.
I understand the depth of the full unit is 9.5 inches - but what is the depth of each individual shelf? I'm trying to figure out if I can fit some books in this and still be able to close the doors. Thanks!nichole1207 on Jan 30, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello nichole1207, the shelves are 5 inches deep. If you have any additional questions please feel free to let us know. Thank you for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 5, 2014
Can shelves be moved so 17" high on a lower (but not bottom)? When doors spread side by side, what is width of open (remaining) shelf space? Are there adjustable legs?
Thxswimmergirlnyc on Oct 24, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello swimmerfirlnyc, This media cabinet is beautiful! The center shelf is stationary, but the remaining shelves are adjustable and can be set to whatever option works best for you. When the doors are open, the opening is approximately 13.25 inches wide. Also, the legs are not adjustable; it is more of a base rather than legs. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 2, 2013
the picture of the cabinet with a blue wall behind it shows that the unit has 4 sliding doors (4 handles). the next 2 pictures show only 2 doors. The units that are available, do they have 4 doors or 2???? Please advise ASAPkeriann76 on Sep 27, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Hi, I still need some clarification: What I am asking, is what is the height of each of the shelves? I understand that the item will fit various media, but I will only be using it for DVDs and Blu-rays, and I want a shelf which can fit DVDs, standing up (vertically, spines out) on EVERY shelf. Thank you!!lostlittleplanet on Dec 31, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The shelves are movable. Height depends on which holes you use to put the shelf pins in. I use for dvds; total of 6 shelves, 46 per shelf. Left over space in each section fits CDs standing upright or another 30 dvds laying down. Total of 336 dvds fit. I also store the extra shelves in the unit. Remove those and another 6 or more dvds would fit.dreamdancer on Jan 11, 2013
Since only some of the shelves are adjustable, what are the possible ranges in height for each shelf? Will I be able to fit standard sized DVDs and Blu-rays, standing up, spines out, on every shelf?lostlittleplanet on Dec 30, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your interest. This item was designed to accommodate various types of media----"720 CDs or 288 DVDs/ 144 CDs or 348 Blu-rays/ 144 CDs." There is enough room to fit. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 31, 2012
