Only because I constantly get asked where and what these DVD/BLU-RAY CABINETS are, I thought I would provide more details:



They are individual Ikea Kaxas CD/DVD storage units (No Longer Sold), they look like this and then you just mount and stack them like I did. I see them pop up on Ebay and kijiji all the time.





They are Dark Grey with tinted black glass sliding doors and silver handles.

Dimensions: 97cm Long, 20cm Deep, 26cm High

They originally sold for about $100 after tax. I got them for $15 each when they liquidated them.

Hope this helps anyone looking.

so slowly buy surely i'm starting to build a modest blu-ray collection. its nothing too talk about...i'm kinda picky about movies i buy so i tend to splurge once a year usually during BF deals.

anyways...so far i've just been storing them in an empty drawer i have...but running out of room.

i searched around the forums and saw a thread that listed the ikea besta...are those fine for a smaller collection that doesn't add too many blu's per/yr? or is there something out there maybe better or even cheaper i should look at?

I see no bowing at all on my fully loaded shelf on the Besta or Billy -- 8/11/15 in depths and various 15-22-32 in wide shelves.
thanks. went ahead and ordered a besta with a couple shelves...should hold me over for awhile

I remembered that sale. I wish I bought more. I only picked up 6. Back then I never thought about stacking them, I wall mounted them. They look amazing stacked. Much better quality than stuff at IKEA now.

I just updated my display and with great help from wife I was able to display most of steel books now. However at one point there is so much I can display. Anyways I bought the shelves from target.

I have several extra shelves for it too (15) and pegs if I wanted to add a peg section. I am thinking that my next house will have a larger movie room and I will set it up in a straight line instead of a U-Shape.

Wow, I wish these were still available. They would be perfect! I really want something with doors so that the random colored cases aren't visibly lining the living room wall.
Say "no" to Samsung Blu-Ray players. Say "yes" to a whole lot more.

Anyone else ever consider using slat wall and brackets for wood shelves?

I have some in my garage, that is plastic, and came in 2' x 8' lengths. There are lots of brackets available, so maybe a garage or storage store might be an option to look at.

I finally settled on something similar for a shelving solution at my new house. I didn’t use a slat wall, but went with a bracket and rail system. I installed the rails into the studs and found some prefinished boards that fit the room. It’s not 100% exactly what I wanted but it was very easy and cost effective. The brackets also provide a lot more flexibility for the future. I’ll be able to fit two more rows of shelves when the time comes.

My personal preference is to keep my BD collection concealed/out of site as much as possible. Iíve never really been a fan of the open bookshelf format as book shelves in general donít appeal to me because I donít like clutter. So my collection stays behind closed doors.

These are old pics and the cabinets are much more full now but it holds my entire collection of over 800 BDs with room to spare and occupies a more reasonable footprint than most other options Iíve seen.

I bought these on amazon years back for around $200 a piece and IIRC theyíre rated to hold around 450 BDs each. Shelves are adjustable, they can be locked to keep kids out, lighting was installed by me using LED light strips from IKEA and are activated by voice command via an Echo Dot.

I like the idea of having them concealed behind doors - gives it a really clean look, and protects from elements (dust mostly, but if you have little ones the doors will help obviously). As much as my collection looks cool, seeing the slips and all, sometimes they can be stress-inducing just seeing all the 'stuff', (stuff that I love of course), but having all those movies can be a little chaotic to my mind, so to speak.

Overall, how do you feel about their durability? At that cost, I would expect decent craftsmanship, and fairly good materials.

Thanks again!

Iíd probably give the overall craftsmanship/materials a 7/10. Sturdier than most shelving out there but not as solid as higher end furniture.

Be advised these do need to be wall anchored or you could put two of them back to back for support. The doors hold a lot but handle the weight with no problem.

Im a big fan of the Ikea Gnedby units. Good for expansion. The spines sit right on the edge too. Can be adjusted for dvds as well.

The Gneby units are just way too narrow for my tastes. Everytime you need to add a movie there would be so much pulling out discs and putting them in the next slot. That’s why I like having a long wall length shelf. It makes adding new movies way easier.
