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!

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.

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.

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.

It is a nice media cabinet, but takes a long time to put together. Also, the instructions are not helpful. They had the least amount of information possible. Had to guess for a lot of the assembly. Other than that the cabinet itself seems pretty good, but a bit tipsy.
We were looking for a cabinet to get our media storage out of our RecRoom. This is tall, taking advantage of our vertical space, and since it isn't very deep, we could put it in our hallway. There are a lot of parts. So it takes some time to put it together. Of course mounting it to the wall is absolutely necessary. The cabinet holds a lot. We have more. However, most of our items fit. Walking down the stairs, it makes an organized impression sitting at the bottom of the stairs. I'll have to keep my fingers crossed that the dog keeps his soccor ball outside. I hate to think what would happen to the glass if he rolled it down the stairs. We just put it together, so I can't speak to how well it will serve us over time. Arrived undamaged with all its parts
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good deep Espresso
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is really good looking for an MDF product

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
