This unit was SUPER PESKY and tedious to put together. It took a really long time and the instructions were not as straight forward as other put-togethers are. We persevered and LOVE the finished product. It looks great and hides the mess of many, many movies that couldn't be helped by the best of other storage ideas. It is mdf so it is also very heavy. Overall we are happy in the end, but weren't thrilled with the building part of the experience.
Grandma to 8
Linda from Colbert, WA – Verified Buyer
Wow. This took me forever to put together. It sat in the box in my living room for over 2 weeks. I thought maybe one of my kids or grand kids might visit and I could ask them to help. That didn't happen so yesterday I opened the box and started the task. The instructions for the most part were good but I wanted to make sure I didn't make a mistake so I was very cautious. Lots of steps and hard to do by myself. (I am almost 70 yrs. old) sometimes I needed to prop it up on something.(the styrofoam it came with worked perfect) after about 6 or 7 hrs. It was done. I love it. I have so much room for all of my dvd' s now. Room for many more. It was worth the time and money. Wish I would have started it sooner.
Excitement Reversed Into Disapointment
Shell Bell from Akron, Ohio – Verified Buyer
Let me start off first by saying, I am not the complaining "type" of person. I was soooo very excited to get this piece of furniture. It looked so awesome on-line, but out of the box, it was a nightmare. [...] The wood is absoultely the lowest quality available. Cheap cheap cheap! I bet it only cost 30 bucks or less for the manufacturer to put this together. Stop! Don't buy this! You will be mad at yourself! Waste of your $! The wood piece on the top snaps like a twig it is so flimsy when you apply the screws and braces. Also, the brackets inside that hold other items are very week and fragile as well. My husband put it together and I never saw him swear so much. We had to use a very strong wood glue of our own because the screw holes crumbled on the top unit. The wood seems to be filled with something like hamster bedding inside. He did finally get this put together. But we are expecting it to continue to fall apart with normal use. Don't make the mistake we did!!! Don't buy it, for real!!!
Great storage for movies!
Mellony from Mukilteo, WA – Verified Buyer
Had to wait for this to be in stock but it was definately worth the wait! It holds all of our movies (dvd, bluray, and VHS). I was worried it wouldn't be big enough but it is perfect for our media room. The door storage is a bit flimsy so we put less in that location.

Great cabinet for our needs. Love it. The only negative a lot of parts & some door shelf screws were not useable.
Actually held all of our DVDs
Ashley R. from San Jose, CA
I purchased this item last week. It came promptly, and since we were having guests over, we had to have it assembled quickly. My boyfriend is very good at putting things together, but he felt like this item had some poor design. He said the instructions were actually very good. The doors do not meet and there is a 1/4 inch gap between them. The decorative top portion was difficult to put on because when you added another piece, it would make the others pop off. The shelves didn't fit the best, but we made them work. The handles are wooden, which is nice. We were glad we went with the black one, because it is mdf, and the wood would probably be fake looking. It does hold an impressive amount of DVDs. The shelves on the door are not as flimsy as the other reviewer indicated. The side pices are screwed in, it is the shelf in between that you are supposed to super glue. We skipped the glue, and they are still holding the DVDs fine. It is a very streamlined look, but I do wish it had drawers instead of the flip-top, which I saw on another website for a lot more. We have some extra binders of DVDs on top and we have to move them every time we want to get something out of the top. The lock works very well, you could use it as a safe-it is very secure. Overall, for [$]it isn't bad.
Toss the bad reviews!
Nicole from Iowa
I'm not sure why this cabinet recieved a couple poor reviews. We LOVE this cabinet and it's worked out just great for us. We had no problems with assembly whatsoever. We thought the instructions were easy to read, understand, and follow. We're very happy with the quality of the cabinet and think it was well worth what we paid. It offers tons of extra storage. It's exactly what we wanted and we couldn't be happier, so pay no attention to the poor reviews. In our opinion it's fantastic!
Rosemarie from Oregon
It is perfect, My husband still has VCRs and needed somewhere to put them. He put it togther without cursing - so that is a good thing. I am pleasantly surprised with the cabinet, since you never know what you get when you do mail order.
Nice DVD storage
Alicia from Nazareth, PA – Verified Buyer
This DVD stand shipped fast and went together easily. All of the parts were included and assembly was easy but time consuming. It probably took my husband about 3 hours from start to finish. Once assembled this is a beautiful piece for our living room and it's the nicest DVD case we could find that holds so many dvds. I love the additional storage that opens from the top. I'll be buying from this company again.
Shawn from Ramona, CA – Verified Buyer
The product itself it great. There is a bit of an issue with the doors staying closed with heavier media in them, but it works. It is very time consuming to assemble... took me about 4 hours. The product itself is fantastic though. I would purchase again. Also - I was worried once I assembled this that there would be a possibility of it tipping, but once you load it with media, it becomes stable.
