I purchased this bookcase for media storage (I cut out holes for the cables in the back of the cabinet). It easily holds all my game systems, blu ray player, cable box, internet router, etc. And the drawer is perfect for storing my wii balance board and wii/playstation controllers. There's PLENTY of room left for dvd's and books, etc. Relatively easy to assemble with easy-to-read instructions. I did it myself in a few hours (without the help of my husband). Good, attractive, quality piece of furniture!
