I wouldn't want Atlantic to design a skyscraper...
on August 9, 2011
The price and DVD storage capability of this product grabbed my attention and led to my eventual purchase. Upon un-boxing it, however, I grew a bit nervous. One of the holes which attaches the top and bottom sections of the rack snapped off before I assembled it and some of the shelves were bent. Though the shelves could be easily bent back into shape, I was immediately skeptical about the reliability of a product that was already falling apart. Not wanting to deal with the headache of returning the tower and having to find a new one, I figured I'd give it a chance. Without DVDs it appeared to hold its own, but when I filled it up I noticed the tower began wobbling to the point where I was concerned that it might fall. I eventually pinned the top of the tower to my wall which significantly reduced the tower's freedom of movement and significantly increased my faith in using this tower for DVD storage.
If you are looking for a freestanding DVD tower, I'd try your luck with a different product. If you're okay screwing it directly into the wall (preferably both top and bottom), then this is a great tower for the price.
