I'm disappointed in all of you for not jumping the opportunity to tell REL77 that he's got a "nice rack".

Shame on you all for missing or passing on that blatant opening.

I have a plain tube-y rack right now, eventually I will have DVDs behind a solid door -- I can't stand the messy open look, honestly.

This is the other one I really liked. I love the style of it and the off balence look of the higher center ones. But the GF didnt approve it as well, plus its ALOT wider and I am not sure for where its going. I like the look of this one cause its look more "Furniture" like. I am just having a hell of a time trying to decide what to order.

This is the one I bought:

Click on the image to see a larger picture.

I'm very happy with it. Holds 900 DVDs or over 2000 CDs. It's very attractive in person. They have smaller versions too.

hmm.. those aren't bad.. kinda wish they had a darker color wood though on some of those racks.

been wanting to get this one from boltz.. but as some of you might have guessed they are expensive.

the metal look is nice though.. and the fact that you can keep adding to it is nice too for future expansion..

hmm.. what to do........

If you don't mind putting it together yourself, it looks like you can save $50 and "at least 20%" on shipping if you buy it unassembled. Look here to check it out.

It's nice, but it seems too expensive. I say build your own for a fraction of the cost.

The only thing I am worried about is how Box Set like LOTR, Scarface, Spider Man are going to fit on a rack like this one

This is smaller (only 58 DVD's), but I really like the way it looks and you could easily customize it (stain, paint, etc.). Put 4-6 of these together on a wall and it would look really good. Plus it's SO CHEAP . . . $19.99!!! Man do I love IKEA.

talemyn: Do you actually own it? Because it looks very nice. With only a 58 DVD capacity though, I'd need at least seven of them to hold all of mine. Probably would get eight for an even number. I have to wonder how high you could stack them on carpet before it became unstable to do so. (I couldn't wall mount them because my apartment has plaster walls.)

This is just a personal preference, but I think the storage cabinet that REL77 posted in the first message looks a lot nicer and less tacky than the QUAD.

I mean, what is up with that shape?

Question: How do you get to the DVD (or DVDs) that end up behind the overlap between the 2 doors, if you have the unit fully loaded, without removing a bunch of DVDs?

I've also been looking at units at IKEA lately. I have 1000 DVDs to store, and prefer them to be in enclosures, rather than exposed.

This item holds 60 DVDs, comes in different colors, with dark or clear glass.

No, I don't own it, but I've been thinking all day about where I could put them in my house. I doubt you could stack them too high before they would fall (assuming that you have carpet . . . with hardwood, concrete, etc., you could probably go pretty high without a problem). As for mounting them to a plaster wall . . . as long as you mounted them to the studs (which I think you would have to do on any wall if you had more than a one or two). But there are some cool things that you could do from a decorating point of view . . . different colors, a checkerboard pattern (the cases for the "black squares", wall space for the "red squares"), etc. Like I said . . . I LOVE IKEA . . . so flexible.

Hmm . . . good question . . . I guess you'd have to pull out some of the other ones or not fill it up. You're right . . . it certainly does look like the overlap would get in the way.
