Pros: The shelves are easily adjustable to accomodate a large number of DVDs and CDs. Assembly is fairly simple. Looks good. Is relatively stable with a well designed base. Unit arrived quickly and was well packaged and complete.Cons: The unit is cheap. The backing is cardboard. The rest of the construction is particleboard. The shelves chip very easily. You need to be very gentle and careful during assembly. The plastic dowels will sometimes pop all the way through the paper vaneer. I don't think I got good value.
