OUTSTANDING. I am extremely pleased with this cabinet. It is beautifully engineered—the doors are strong and open with ease, even when full. (7" clearance is required on each side of the cabinet to open its doors.) It is beautifully constructed and its finish appears to be hand rubbed lacquer with a definite red glow. It is obviously constructed of 100% hard wood, including the back and strong 1/2" shelves. Prior to ordering I was concerned about interior dimensions and its ability to accommodate collector boxed sets of DVDs. The interior depth of the back of the cabinet is 5 & 3/4" and the door storage depth is 5 & 5/8". I have had no problem fitting my entire DVD collection into the cabinet including "BAND OF BROTHERS" and "THE PACIFIC," although I did have to position them opposite standard size DVDs. It was packaged good and was delivered in 10 days. Positioning the shelves was the only assembly required. I am so pleased with the product that I plan to order a second one.
Fits Inside a Door Frame. While assembly is pretty easy, I recommend having a watcher to compare what you are assembling to the the pictures in the instructions. Had I not peeked into the room and looked at the partial assembly, the sides would have been assembled back to front. At best an aggravation to correct. At worst a completely botched assembly. I intend to get at least one more and perhaps up to 3 more. Then I can join them back to back and add casters to make rotating DVD storage shelves. With upwards of 1100 DVDs to store, this extra space will really come in handy. I bought materials to make 2 similar items from plywood. Considering materials cost, these are cheaper, easier to assemble, and don't require special finishes. All of these are pluses in my book.
Functional, quality product, good design. The cabinet meets my needs for CD storage with a really good looking unit. Assembly was very straightforward as most pieces are interchangeable - really nice fabrication and design for assembly. Quality, esp. for veneer on mdf,exceeded expectations. Only issue was shipping with three delays in shipping and took about three-four weeks. BUT the packaging with double boxing and protective features was impressive.
good value for the money. -I ordered two units. I selected two "narrow units" over one singular "wide unit" due to "shelf-sag" concerns et. al. Excellent narrow design - perfect for hallways! -Good stability for its height was surprising -Shelves appear narrow-gauge. Though mid-shelf support (at rear) was included, only "time will tell" if "mid-shelf sag" becomes a problem. -Back panel was in 2 pieces (I ordered white), and different shades of white between the two panels were quite noticeable. (Since most of the back panel is hidden from view, I accepted the color/shade flaw.)
Great piece of media storage furniture! I have had this unit for about four years now and it is full. I have three children and it has held up against the onslaught so far. This unit is very sturdy for the material it is made from and the surface is very nice as well. I did take my time when assembling this unit and actually used good wood glue during assembly to add support, why not? Keep in mind that once you load this thing up, you will have to unload it to move it if you decide to rearrange furniture. The only real negative aspect of this unit is that the drawers do not have slide stops, so you will pull the drawer completely out if not a little cautious and this is the only reason I did not give it 5 stars. Great product and I wrote this review since I am buying another one just like it since the library has filled the closet again!
Sure, your music and game library is impressive. But where to put it all? Our media storage units are designed for optimum organization. CD and DVD storage is surprisingly versatile. Add an armoire with extra shelves, or tidy up a play area with a wall game storage unit. Stack vertically with a soaring tower media cabinet. Or, get your decor moving in the right direction with portable media shelves -- they're wherever you need them, at a moment's notice.
