Question Buying a new blu-ray shelf

So my 2 Ikea shelfs are completely filled up now, and obviously I just can't stop buying Blu's :roll eyes: , so that means only one this. NEW SHELF! I have my eye on this one

http://www.racksandstands.com/Atlant...14-AL0376.html

does anyone have this? hows the build quality? Anything else you can tell me? Also what stores are the best to look for new shelfs? I want one built for movies in mind (like the one I posted). Please keep in mind I live in CANADA, so american stores are useless to me. Also has anyone every bought anything from http://www.racksandstands.com/ before? They look pretty legit!

Thanks in advance everyone!!

I've been looking into buying a new shelf but don't really want to spend alot of money.Theres been a few guys on here who have built there own,which is what i'd like to do.You can actually have the Lowes or whatever store cut all the wood pieces for you,so it shouldnt be too hard.I just need to figure out some dimensions first.Otherwise i think that rack you're looking at would work fine.

Seems a little 'pricey' for shelving. I'd look around town more and see what you can find. Maybe it's just me being irked by how much people charge for 'particle board'. $170 for something that cost about $25 in materials (though I could be way off).

It says it holds almost 600 Blus. Don't know how many you currently have and whether you're planning on ditching the shelves you're currently using or if you're gonna need one that holds that many.

Sorry I wasn't more help than just my .02

I wouldn't buy a fiberboard shelve. I had a cabinet for ages that was built out of it in my basement that I used to hold a vinyl record player. There wasn't a lot or weight on it. I was able to, after removing my equipment, literally collapse the whole thing. I went to a local store that sells shelving and noticed how flimsy a lot of them were.

Shelves need to be sturdy for obvious reasons and fiberboard will never give you that because they eventually sag or will collapse.

That's similar to the one I have. Yours looks like it has adjustable shelves though.

You will need to screw it into the wall or else it will definitely fall over. It's also a ***** to move, so put it together as close to where you're going to keep it as possible.

Also, the top shelf isn't big enough for BDs, which is a disappointment. But overall, I'd recommend it. I'm getting close to needing to find another shelf myself.

It's from Best Buy. It's the same company (Atlantic), but it's not quite as large.

I looked at shelves similar to those, found too many reviews on amazon and elsewhere about damage during shipping and a little flimsy. Seemed simple enough to build one, which I did and I'm very happy with it. I built mine 60" wide as I didn't want to deal with any vertical dividers.
I have plenty of space for future titles and filled in the gaps with some box sets, steelbooks, and others.

My father cut the pieces and painted them during the week. Then on a weekend we put it together in my basement (I've got stairs to my basement that make a 90 degree turn so this wouldn't have made it down the steps if it was pre-assembled.)
We used standard size lumber; the vertical sides and middle shelves are all 3/4" X 5 5/8" and the top and bottom pieces are 3/4" X 7 5/8" - so there's a little over-hang on the top and bottom. It was my dad's idea to router slots in the vertical pieces to put in adjustable wall shelving strips - with the routing they're flush with the rest of the wood (these are the white strips you see in the photo). I didn't need the shelves to be adjustable, but it did make it much quicker to screw in place a few of the shelves to make the unit sturdier. After we attached the backing board it sat right up against the wall and then I put a few screws through the back into the studs in the wall to keep in place.
We're building speaker stands for my L & R surrounds now that I hope to have installed this weekend.

it depends how fancy you want to go. I don't have tools either, I asked them to cut everything to length where I bought the wood. When I got home all I needed to do was screw everything together (I used screws and L vrackets for the shelves)
