Thanks Tiger! It's worth asking for a discount if you are going to buy in bulk - I was able to get mine for considerably less than the initial asking price.

Here are a few other photos of the front of the room...

We use a splitter/switch to feed the consoles to both the projector (optoma hd3300) and the television. The screen is painted on the wall and measures nearly 150”.



Even though the room is bright, when the shades are pulled down, we can get it very dark and get great color and contrast. This picture was taken during the afternoon.



Under the TV we have a European PS3 slim (for Region B for Blu-Rays), a U.S. PS4 (for Region A for Blu-Rays), a Wii U, Playstation TV and an additional Blu-Ray player used primarily for other DVD regions and old field sequential 3D DVDs that require an interlaced signal.



The trays to the left hold PS3 Buzz controllers, Wii controllers and various cables.



The trays to the right are for additional 3D glasses..



We're just console gamers (not part of the P.C. "master race" (LOL), but at the computer desk (to the right of the projection screen), we have a 3DS XL (with a grip) and a second O.G. OLED Vita.

Impressive collection hotandserious. I actually use the exact same DVD sleeves but I have been storing them on shelves which is not very attractive. I have been looking for a cabinet to store them in similar to way you are doing. You state in your video that the cabinet was custom made. Could you share how you accomplished that? Did you supply the dimensions to the builder and did you have it done locally or by a company online? The only thing pre-manufactured that I have found so far that seems suitable would be a parallel file cabinet with extra dividers placed within, but the ones I have found don't seem like they would match well with furniture I have. Also thanks for the warning about WB archive covers sticking. I was not aware of that.

Hi Subgeniusguy,

Sorry for taking so long to reply! I had the drawers made by a company in Vienna Austria and I gave them very specific dimensions. To divide the rows within the drawers I used 2x4s cut to size. I'm not aware of a company that does something similar in the states, but there must be something...?

And - ug- the warner archive sticky problem was a heartbreaker to discover.

Thanks for all of the kind words!

Mark

If you or anyone is interested:

If anyone is interested, I got both the sleeves and dividers from bags unlimited.

Here is their general dvd section:
https://www.bagsunlimited.com/c-458-dvd-supplies.aspx

Dividers are here:
https://www.bagsunlimited.com/c-142-dvd-dividers.aspx

I ordered these specific divders:
https://www.bagsunlimited.com/p-5300...lystyrene.aspx

- - - - and just used sticker laser printer paper to make my labels.

-and this is their DVD sleeves section:
https://www.bagsunlimited.com/c-69-d...y-sleeves.aspx

I use these:
https://www.bagsunlimited.com/p-4217...d-sleeves.aspx

They also have some sized specifically for blu-ray & others with two pockets for double discs, but I use single disc envelopes for second discs.

If you plan on ordering a very large qty, it may be worth giving them a call and asking if they will give you a better discount than you see on the website.

Two "pro-tips" (LOL):

1) DVDs in the now (thankfully) defunct snap cases have artwork that is just a little too big to fit in the sleeves with the spine facing forward. They will fit with the spine facing backwards, but I wanted them to be consistent. So I use a heavy duty paper cutter and trim about 1/8 - 1/16th of an inch off the right side to get 'em in there. I've never had to cut so deep that I lost any essential art or typography and I don't think anyone would ever notice. The Something Weird dvd I show in the video was originally in a snap case.

2) WARNING: Warner Archive and MOD paper artwork sticks to the sleeves over time! This was a BIG bummer. Because they are printed differently, the ink eventually adheres to the inside of the sleeve. The solution I've found is to cut the clear plastic off of the original DVD case and put that between the sleeve and the art. I also spray the printed side of the sleeves with hairspray, which was an old art school trick for protecting drawings from smudging, etc. Not sure if that is necessary, but I wanted to be safe.
I thought of your collection today when replying to a different post and actually have a friend that's looking to ditch his DVD and Blu-ray cases and store his collection some other way. Appreciate you taking the time to link to the dividers and sleeves you're using. Amazing collection by the way. Physical media for the win!

Great job, hotandserious, but I have one question:

What do you do with TV series with more than one disc in a package? How do they fit inside your sleeves?

It's a little shaky & the audio could be louder, so apologies...

Big 6000+ DVD & Blu-ray Collection Storage Solution - YouTube


I also took a few photos...

Fortunately, my wife and I have a large living room in our apartment, so it doubles as our home theater.
The back wall is where we keep all of our discs.





DVDs that don't come in traditional cases go on the shelving units mounted on the wall.




We can't easily reach the top shelf, so boxes on the very top are empty and for display only.




I primarily collect older films and 3D discs.




Here are some Blu-ray 3D discs in one of our three large spinning towers.
These towers are the largest capacity I've been able to find.





Each tower has a capacity of 756 DVDs, but since blu-rays in the USA
come in thinner cases, you can get 34 BRDs per shelf. With 7 shelves per side
(when spaced equally), that comes to a capacity of 952 blu-rays.




The towers are represented as holding more (1056 Blu-rays),
so technically you could stack a few in on their sides, etc - but it will look a bit awkward.
Results will be different with thicker UK BRD cases, etc.





Here's a detail of the center shelving with some Arrow Video Blus, Cinerama movies,
and a couple of Charlton Heston epics.




Center shelves and more 3D Blu-rays.



This cart fits nicely under the center shelves.




More 3D discs and some EC slipcased box sets on the bookshelf to the right.




More books.




DVDS that originally came in cases have their cases removed,
are inserted in vinyl sleeves, and are filed in these drawers.





I had the drawers custom made. We use divider cards to organize by genre, star or director.




Myrna Loy rates a divider.




Here are some DVDs in the vinyl sleeves.




...and some Blu-Rays in the vinyl sleeves too.



I talk a bit about how I arrived at this storage system in the video link up at the top. It will also give you a better look at the discs and a quick overview of the room including our ceiling-mounted projector and screen.

If you have any questions or comments, I'd love to hear them.

Thanks!
Very nice use of space and amazing assortment of films. Looks very clean, well organized and uncluttered. I had custom shelving put in and NEVER thought Iíd need more space but I have officially run out of room! Like you, I mostly collect 3D films along with specific 4K Blu-rays and as many premium steelbooks as I can afford.

Iíve strayed away from box sets bc I wasnít sure how/where to store them but you provided me with some great ideas and there are a few I really loved but passed on. If I can afford to buy them second hand I might begin to do that but I canít afford the scalper prices on eBay for the most part.

I love this. I think I may do something like the drawer and disc socks system form my regular and wrestling dvd's.
