good--but with a problem or two, that is (three and 1/2 stars)
on March 6, 2008
This Atlantic CD storage rack makes attractive CD storage a reality. It requires little assembly and the modern design gives it a sense of refinement that you don't always get with a CD storage rack. The rack could be placed in a corner; but perhaps putting it in a more attractive space will work for you. The rack is compact although the top can get a little tipsy at times; I use this rack but I leave the top few rungs empty just to be very sure it won't tip over. That does disappoint me and I will have to take off one and one half stars for that problem.
One plus is that you get to choose between resting this on the floor (which I did) or you can mount it on a wall. You might want to mount it on a wall if there are children or pets around so that they don't get into it too easily! It's also rather affordable; for the price I would estimate it holds about 75 to 80 CDs comfortably on the rack "shelves."
There are a few shelves that are larger to accommodate two CD sets or CD box sets; but there aren't many of these larger shelves on the rack. If you have a lot of CD box sets I would recommend you try another type of CD storage rack.
Overall, this attractive, easy to assemble storage tower houses CDs very well and the minimalist, modern design gives it a handsome appearance. It goes particularly well with modern or contemporary décor and it lasts forever (mine's about two or three years old already). The rack is easy to move about as it is only six or seven pounds at the most when empty (Amazon says it weighs 10 pounds); and you can even place it in a closet if you wish to keep it there for any reason.
