While the construction of this media cabinet is not exceptional, it does end up being an effective storage solution. The tower is built out of the usual cheap pressed wood pulp, though it should have no trouble holding up to your media collection. The assembly is easy and only required about five minutes. The pieces are labeled and the instructions are clear, but the tower can be assembled without even opening them. The tower is held together by a combination of wooden dowels and screws. I was initially worried about stability, but was thankfully proven wrong. After all of the parts are together, the tower's wide base makes it stable even on carpet. After installing the screws, there are no plastic caps or stickers to hide the screw holes. The screws finish is black making it harder to spot the holes, but they are noticeable if that bothers you.

The tower is fairly small once assembled and seems much larger in the picture. It only stands about waist high (I am 6ft tall) but manages to hold quite a bit of media. If you use the tower for DVDs or Blu-Rays, you will have a couple of extra shelves left over. You can only use all of the included shelves if you use part of it for CD storage. The shelves are installed by placing them on four metal dowels that are inserted in pre-drilled holes on the tower's uprights. The shelves are routed allowing the shelf to be more secure since it slides onto these dowels instead of just floating on them. Given how cheaply made this tower is, it is a nice addition that should ensure your shelves do not slide out of the tower (a great benefit given that my sub woofer sits directly beside it.) If you are looking at a cheap storage solution, this cabinet should do well so long as you don't expect premium construction out of a $30 product. The lack of screw hole coverings seems a bit cheap, but can easily be rectified on your own. While this cabinet will not be your most prized piece of furniture, it does to an admirable job of holding a lot a media for very little money.

Perfect little shelf for my blu-ray collection as well as my Xbox 360 games. See my picture for what it looks like IRL

Not the greatest quality but great for the price. This is not a bookshelf. It is used for media. CDs, DVDs, console games, etc. It is the perfect depth for this type of media. It is too shallow for a bookshelf, but that is not what it is meant for.

My daughter is using this in her room to store her media, and also to store some collectibles. It works perfectly. She loves it. I love that her room is finally in order. Miracle of miracles...

There are 5 shelves but the way the holes are drilled for the shelves, you won't fit more than two shelves for games or DVDs standing up. You will have to lay the games or DVDs down on the rest of the shelves. It was very easy to assemble and seems well made. It looks nice. Price was great.

I typically love these type of shelving units. They're quick and easy to assemble. This item was no exception...until you try to put in the adjustable shelves. The shelves went into the lower half with no problem. However, when I went to put the shelves in the upper half, they wouldn't settle into the adjustable pegs. One quick glance revealed the problem, and a tape measure confirmed. The holes for the pegs on one of the side boards were more than 1/2 inch off from the top to the bottom (1" on the bottom, 1 1/2" on the top). Fortunately, the holes are so misaligned that I was able to drill holes for the pegs in the correct location without jeopardizing the integrity. A blind monkey could have done a better job at aligning these holes. Obviously, there is is no quality check with this company.

I bought this under the impression that it was as tall in height as the picture depicted it. My mistake was (for the 1st time ever) not reading the reviews! Everything other consumers say about this p.o.s. is true: the instructions are crap, it is flimsy/tips easily, there are too many shelves unless you plan on making it a spice rack & it is MINISCULE AKA VERY VERY SMALL (3ft in height).
I went to Target and bought an awesome black 5ft 9inch bookcase for $26!!!!! (Yes less expensive and way better quality)

As other reviewers have noted- the picture of this product is a bit misleading as it is definitely smaller than the picture would lead you to believe.

The cabinet is only just over 3 Feet tall....

However, for the price and the quality this is not a bad purchase. It compliments a nice entertainment center and flat screen TV quite well in terms of cosmetics and quality. In the space I had planned to put this cabinet thinking it was much larger I actually ended up ordering another one and placed them side by side.

Assembly was a breeze with very non-complicated and easy instructions (2 pages and maybe 3 or 4 steps) requiring only a phillips head screwdriver, it took less than 15 minutes.

I rate it 5 stars.

This slim media cabinet was very easy to assemble, holds a good amount of media, looks nice, and is sturdy on a flat surface if placed up against a wall. Rather than the floor, I placed this on a wooden ledge that goes across one of my family room walls. It's smaller than the picture portrays, so be sure to read the dimensions. The best part was the discounted price, as I would not have paid the original price for this small piece.

I was looking up video game racks/towers and thinking about bookshelves at the same time, so I ended up with a product that I thought was a bookshelf lol It does look like one, and in the photo and even on the box it came in (to me) looks a little bigger (fuller in the shelves and wider in the overall size) than it actually is. I plan on keeping this "media cabinet" though, for organizing small items that I tend to misplace (keys, pencils, etc) and for my all of my video games and other electronics (memory cards, controllers, even my camera), of course. I love constructing/building or arranging pieces, and I love how you can rearrange the shelves so easily. It matches my laptop/tv desk great, and is skinny but holds many items and fits in my room without taking up space. Now, I will eventually buy a real bookshelf for my folders, college books, and personal items like medicine, lotion, and hair products lol, but for now, maybe this was a good mistake :D It also arrived in one day instead of two and in excellent shape. 4/5 (pretty skinny and acceptable cheap wood, but does it's job) for the product that it is.

This is soooooo small and sooooo bad quality
The back doesnt even fully attach to the shelf
it's just a pice of cardboard
I received it with one nail less
you'd think nowadays every company put one extra but nope, they decided to put one less
so after spending 20 minutes putting everything up and realized it's so shaky at the bottom, with all nails on, and it's missing a nail at top I decided to return this piece of junk for good
