I chose the cherry-black version, and it blends very nicely with other furnishings. I'm very pleased with the rich look of the wood. The back is just a "butterfly" of black press paper/board (cheap), but you don't really notice this once you have it filled with CDs and DVDs. It has enough shelves and pegs for "all CD" use, or just store the extras if you have a few shelves of DVDs.
Not sure what "Barrister" means, but this is a easily assembled item that is sturdy and nice looking. It is better than the other media centers I purchased here. I chose the least expensive wall unit for my books, but had a small area to cover and chose this one. It was worth it.
This DVD shelf holder arrived in perfect condition, was quick and easy to assemble and looks great. It does not look cheap or fake. The finish on the wood is lovely and it matches my other furniture perfectly. In fact, I liked the one I ordered so much that I ordered a second one and now all of my DVD's are in one place - side by side in my slim barrister towers.
