As always, Overstock ships promptly. I have owned one of these units for five or more years now and it works handsomely to hold DVDs (and anything else I shove onto it... I even put books onto it for a while.) Although it is not solid wood, it has withstood a 600 mile move and being put together backwards, as well as 100 lbs of books on the bottom few shelves. I have never noticed any of the shelves chipping or breaking and I have at least 20 more shelf pieces than I needed anyway, since I only use DVD-sized space instead of CD-sized space. If I recall correctly, it only took me about 45 minutes to assemble this item. However, if you are in a house that has settled at all into an uneven slant, you really will need to latch it onto the wall despite the nice base. I love how slim this unit is because it doesn't really clutter up a room, which is why I am buying a second unit very soon. The only thing that has happened that I didn't like about this unit is that the dowels get stuck in the holes sometimes (I guess maybe I put them in the wrong way or maybe it's made to be tight?) - I needed to use pliers in order to remove them without causing damage. The one I already own probably could not be moved from where it is currently latched to the wall (I have cats that love to jump on top, so I don't really have an option to leave it stand alone), but I am not easy on furniture and neither are my four cats! And, if I have to replace the old one, I am certainly buying another one of these since we're avid DVD collectors in my household. It supports having items on its top for display, also - I would say we have about 3 lbs of decorative pieces on top of the unit, and my 9 lb. cat doesn't seem to disturb it much, even when jumping off at full speed.
