Looks great when finished. Fairly easy to assemble with the exception of the back. The back on ours consisted of three panels that was suppose to use cheap paper tape to connect the panels. I replaced the paper tape with duct tape ... Works great. Also the back panel is nailed on ... Pulls out with first dvd pushed back on shelf ... Replace every other nail with a spiral shank nail and have no further problems.
Having read reviews beforehand, I was a little sceptical about purchasing, but my need to store my CD collection outweighed my caution - I was not disappointed. The package arrived within 7-10 days, the construction was completed by myself in a reasonable amount of time (an hour and a half in total - despite my DIY skills being minimal!), and the quality is fine and the build is sturdy enough to house most of my CD collection - I like the fully (!) adjustable shelves (not like on some other advertised products, as my collection includes CD cases of many different shapes and sizes, only one of which I could not fit in without the rest of the cabinet looking odd; it holds well over 1000 CD's. My only two criticisms are a) the case frontage columns conceal from view the first and last CD on each shelf (overcome by placing an empty CD jewel case at each end of each shelf) which could be a nuisance, and b) a little more aesthetic/practical thought could have been put into the wall fixing that stops the cabinet from falling over - I haven't had any problems with the unit tipping forward. It looks good, and thoroughly suits my purpose - my only problem is that, as this was the largest available, I will have to order another 'sister' unit to house my remaining 200-odd CD's! I would recommend this product.
The cabinet took a while to get here but I quickly put it together after receiving it. The cabinet is very sturdy, even after almost completely loading it with CD's and DVD's.

Sturdy and holds lots of DVD's. The best choice after lots of research. Only thing I do not like is the top piece, the bottom is not the same color as the rest, it is unpainted/stained, so it looks cheap. Otherwise, would purchase another one, as we have almost filled the first!
This piece is nice and sturdy and, from a distance, looks somewhat expensive. However, although packaged well mine arrived with a big hole in it. Overstock sent another and asked me to pull the pieces out to replace the damaged ones and send the rest back. Which would be a great solution, except that this shelf comes in two packages and is extremely heavy. I cannot lift or even slide the boxes, which I now have to lug inside again and deal with packaging up to return. Lots of time and effort on my end for their damaged piece. But looks nice and holds lots, so hopefully it will be worth it.
This was a gift for our son's birthday. He is really enjoying his new media cabinet to house his 500+ blu ray movies. It could be made a little bit better as the back is simply particle board. Other than that it is serving it's purpose.
