Anything that is made of particle board simply will not hold. If you want a quality piece that will add to the esthetics of your living rm or man cave. I'd have to suggest getting something made or making it yourself. Many community colleges and or high schools that have shop classes can make you something for a small donation and the cost of the supplies. Or IKEA tends to have some quality pieces.

I have this one from Target. The only thing about it that is particle board is the back of it. Its been moved a few times various locations apt etc. No issues nor worries.

Yeah I know its target. But they have some quality pieces every now and then you just have to hunt for them!!! It was an online exclusive I had to have them order it in store.

the cheapness of most racks from places like best buy/wal-mart/target are the reason i built my own.

i used finished-grade lumber (1"x6") from lowe's for the sides and shelves and a piece of 1/8" ply for the back. it has 5 shelves (creating 6 spaces) and can hold just over 300 blu-rays.

i bought the materials and cut and assembled it all in one day.

the shelves are held to the sides using screws (this was before i had a pocket-screw jig) and the back is held on with small finishing nails (hammered in with a regular hammer; didn't have a pneumatic nailer then, either).

none of the shelves sag, bend or warp. it's not the pretties thing in the world, but it does the job well. now i just need to build another one since i have over 100 blu-rays that won't fit in there.

i used it for a almost two years before i ever stained it; now it matches the rest of the furniture in my room.

I had one custom made about 10 years ago for all my dvds. It held just over 600 dvd's. But I sold all my dvd's and just have a few blu-rays so now it is mostly a nick-knack shelf. It cost me about 300 dollars to have made.
Movies that need to go Blu. The Ref, Open Range, Life As A House, Great Outdoors, True Lies, Joe Dirt, Maximum Overdrive, Pool Hall Junkies, Brain Candy.

T.V. shows that need to go Blu Man Vs. Wild, Survivor Man, Dirty Jobs, NHL Winter Classic 2009.

Like Sk33tr, I also built myself two shelf units using 1x6 finished lumber and 1/8" Luan from Lowe's, and then primered and painted them black (2 coats each) with 4" paint rollers. Each unit is 36" wide and 72" tall; the top and bottom shelves in each unit are screwed fast to the side pieces, and the remaining shelves are suspended/adjustable using 4 removable shelf supports per shelf (require 1/4" holes drilled on the insides of the side pieces, 1/2" deep). It only took me about two hours each to build and assemble the units, and a few days to apply all the coats of primer and paint. These are very sturdy shelf units, and cost a little over $100 each to build and paint.... To keep the units upright against the wall, I ran two drywall screws through the back panel of eack unit (in the top shelf space), and into the wall studs behind. Here's a photo from my Home Theater Gallery link...

I just put in an order for 2 custom made contemporary style shelves. They are being made from Tasmanian Oak. The dimensions of each unit are going to be 2100mm Hx 1250mm Wx 200mm D, they will have 9 shelves in total, 3x 210mm H, 5x 190mm H, and 1x 150mm H (though I'm thinking about changing the order tomorrow to 6x 190mm H), which will hold approximately 1450 dvd's/blu-ray's/cd's/games. It's not cheap though, it's costing me $2550au, but I'd rather buy quality that will last me a life time than cheap MDF partical board shelves.

Living in an apartment, I just don't have the space to make them. My old man's a builder, if I lived closer to him I would probably make them instead.
Setup:
Panasonic th-p65vt60a tv, Sony str-da5300es avp/pre-amp, Emotiva xpa-2 & xpa-5 amps, Dali Concept: 10 (fronts) 2 (rears x4) & centre speakers, 2x SVS pb13-ultra subwoofers, Oppo bdp-105 Blu-ray player/DAC (region free), Onkyo c-s5vl sacd player, Panasonic dmr-bwt835 1tb hdd/Blu-ray recorder, Xbox One & 360 250gb s, Sony PS4 & PS3 60gb, Cyron lighting & htw1000 controller, Samsung s2 1tb hdd, SurgeX sx1210rli surge protector/power conditioner x3, Logitech Harmony 1100i remote

They say a picture is worth a 1000 words, your description sounds as if they are basic. But your pictures look pretty good. Your shelves would be a welcome addition to anyones home!!!

Have him build it. Rent a truck and get it. Nothing like having something built by hand by a love one. It will always be a conversation piece. Always something that you will have to cherish!!!

Thanks, onyx - my entire theater room is basically DIY, I built or installed much of the stuff in it - the front stage, the second row bar table, the wall columns for the sconce lights, the media shelves, all the electrical circuits, the flooring - even the keg fridge I converted from an upright freezer...

He's a very busy man, works 12+ hours a day, is still finishing off the renovations on a new property he recently bought, so I couldn't possibly ask him at this point in time to make me some shelves, and I can't wait for them either as my current shelves almost have no space left. He's 57 in a little over a month, it's his time to relax, not to spend his time catering to me.

Ikea can have some good options.

Sometimes we hear of people who are “very” honest, “mostly” honest, or even “a little” honest.
Should we even use modifiers with the word honest? I don’t believe so. There are no degrees of honesty. Either we are honest or we aren't.

an ex-girlfriend simply had a shelf made up of bricks and 2x4's that made the shelves. sounds crappy maybe, but it looked cool and was super simple and you could simply add another 2x4 (or whatever you would use for the shelf) whenever the other shelves filled up! thinking of doing the same myself since my current shelf wasn't what it showed on the box - the second shelf cannot hold DVD's or blu-rays standing up, it's a goddamn CD shelf right in the middle of blu-ray shelves

My wife and I use a really nice bookshelf we bought from a local furniture store called Oak Express. It's really good quality, large, and most importantly all wood.
