DVD cabinets from SkyMall?

I didn't put this in the store forum as this concerns the product rather than the store...if anyone else sells it, cool.

I was on a flight and saw an ad in SkyMall for what's touted as the "world's largest storage capacity towers." They come in singles, doubles and triples, with each section holding 312 DVDs. So a double -- only 52" wide and 9 1/2" deep -- holds 624 dvds, which is more than I've seen elsewhere. I'm trying to re-organize a 1500+ collection in a nyc apartment, so it seems like if I get 4 doubles it'd work out well for me.

Anyone have any experience with these?

here's another option....doesn't hold quite as much but i don't think it'll cost you as much: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1184768131733

Awesome dude, thanks. I hadn't seen those before. Might be a winner.

I can vouch for the Atlantic shelf, I have two myself, and they are quite nice.

I have 2 of these that were purchased during separate DD 20% off sale for under $100. They are great.

I have a few of these myself. They work great. I did notice (like most big DVD storage cabinets) that if you have them on carpet, they are top-heavy until you fill them up a little or very slightly lean the cabinet against the wall.

PS to OP - Coincidently, I just got off a flight yesterday and remember looking at the specific cabinets you were referring to... thinking to myself, "World's Largest?" Really? Kinda spooky.

I made sure to anchor my shelves to a wall. I'd rather be safe than sorry.
