All in all I love it! I actually bought a second one as well.
As stated in the headline, it fits 325 standard width Blu-rays across five shelves (factored by filling up one shelf full with 65 standard width cases which fit snuggly but not squashed), works well enough for my horror collection. I might buy another for the low price.
The Sauder Multimedia Storage Tower is designed specifically for DVD or CD storage with fully adjustable shelves, and I mean fully -- unlike other units, the peg holes on the sides start a couple of inches up from the bottom, then go in about one inch increments all the way up. No wasted space for a DVD collection here. It's also shallow enough that the DVDs are flush with the front, so bonus points for ease of use, as well as saving space. I've seen other comments here saying that it doesn't hold as many DVDs as advertised, but I was able to get 250 DVDs into each of two of mine (not filling the third), give or take a few titles, of course, for box sets and the like.
Assembly was very easy. I did each unit myself in under half an hour. Now, I have had a lot of experience with flat-pack furniture, but if you can follow instructions and can use a screwdriver (standard and Philips) and a hammer, you're all set. A tape measure also helps if you want to be precise on placing the nails on the backing. There are exactly five steps in the instructions, clearly illustrated and written in English, French and Spanish. Finally, they are very generous with the spare screws, nails, etc., that come with the unit. I used everything listed in the instructions and still had extras left over -- great for those of you with fumbly fingers and shag carpets. If you configure it for DVDs only, you'll also have two extra shelves to do with as you please. (I'm thinking of making a three-shelf wall unit or shoe rack out of the six extra I have.)
I do have a couple of caveats on assembly, but nothing that would make me give this a negative rating. First, the page that comes after step 1 is *not* step 2, it shows how to tighten the camlocks. However, it can be a little unclear that you should not tighten them until after step two. Doing so before that may damage the heads of the cam pins, which are designed with a plastic flange that is meant to flare out and secure it in the hole on the top of the unit, somewhat like a drywall screw. Also, as with every other piece of flatpack furniture that uses a cardboard backing, putting in all 28 nails can be tedious, and a bit awkward if you're trying to do it on the floor. I wouldn't really consider this a problem specific to this product, though, and I have yet to see any other company come up with a better backing solution. Finally, the wooden pieces were a bit saw-dusty in the box -- however, the last step of the instructions indicates that this wasn't a fluke, just the way they wind up packed, and the shelves wipe clean with a damp cloth.
Otherwise, it's a very attractive piece with a gloss finish and a nice rounded edge on the top and bottom pieces. The top is flush with the sides, while the bottom extends out a few inches, presumably for stability. Once loaded, it does seem fairly stable, although I would still recommend using the included angle bracket and screws to secure it to a wall, especially if you live in an area prone to earthquakes. (I don't know whether it would be more or less stable without the optional feet installed. My units are on hardwood floors, but the feet are probably not the way to go on carpet.) Also, if you're not going to fully load it yet, go from bottom to top, again for stability. I knew I'd fill the first one completely, so sorted my collection into it alphabetically, but had to hold it steady when the top shelves were fuller than the bottom.
If, like me, you've got a large DVD collection that you want to store in an economical and attractive way, then this unit is hard to beat. I had about 39 linear feet of DVDs to store, and three units did the job with plenty of room to spare. The shallow profile and just under four foot height is very appealing, making then unobtrusive while displaying your collection to its full advantage. Sauder Multimedia Storage Tower Cinnamon Cherry
Cons: Was missing the instructions, hammering the back piece on is super annoying lol, probably wouldn't hold up well in a move
Overall, it's worth the $50. I clearly didn't expect a whole lot. I do wish Sauder would publish their instruction manuals online. When I saw that the instructions were missing I went online and there was a form to fill out to have the instructions mailed or emailed. So annoying. Luckily I've put together a billion cheap bookshelves like this so I just figured it out pretty easily on my own.
Now for the lost star: after only a day or two, the shelves began sagging under the weight of nothing but DVDs and Blu-Rays. I don't expect any catastrophic results, but there is a noticeable dip after a only a short time. I can't remember the exact numbers but the shelves had a weight rating that I think my collection may have passed, but given that it's meant to hold discs I would think filling up the shelves with them would be expected (shrugs).
All in all, this is a very nice shelf that will fit in with any room decor you have well. And in this age where stores seem to have stopped carrying DVD shelves, this is a great option.
