Default Think this really holds 1200 blu-rays?

Looking for a new shelf as my current one is completely full.

Spotted this but im not sure if i believe the site that it really holds 1200

I have just over 700 now so that would give me plenty of room for expansion (as well as tv show seasons and collectors editions)

It says it can hold 702 DVDs or 1200 BDs. That seems like a strange discrepancy.

It should. Just make sure to fasten it to wall studs.

Looks pretty big and adjustable to me. Assuming you're only storing Blu-Rays and no DVDs, it probably will.

Also keep in mind that TV shows on Blu-Ray might suck up a lot more room, depending on a lot of things.

According to the stock photos, the image has 28 DVDs per shelf (~26 sectional shelves for DVD) which seems to validate the maximum number claimed for the unit. Based on a quick estimate, you can get close to 1200 Blu-rays if you assume 11mm cases and 34 sectional shelves for Blu-ray.

No it's not. DVDs are taller, therefore, there won't be as many shelves available.

Every media rack storage compacity varies because, It depends on the size of the packaging whether if it's a boxset, steelbook, multi-disc TV series, etc because they tend to take up more space than regular single, 2 disc blu-rays.

I have these exact shelves and from how I set it up (which I believe is most you could possibly fit) I have 30 sections that fit roughly 34 "standard" size movies each. That comes out to 1020 movies, which I am already over and got a new set of shelves for. I recommend it if you have 800+ movies.


edit: actually i think mine is this one, which looks exactly the same but measurements say 1" wider and 2" deeper. The base does look a little bit deeper in the pictures. Other than that should be the same. My order from years back says it's a Prepac.

If you have kids or pets, any of those non-solid wood shelves should be braced to the wall.

no, when the shelf is fully loaded it actually leans back a little bit. but i don't have any kids though so i would brace it if i did. in that picture it is leaning back against the couch because i am about to have the carpet replaced in the media room.

Excellent! This is a very good point for safety reason because, the rack can be tilted, shaken and fall right on top of a child or a pet, and they can get seriously hurt.

bringing this thread back because this shelf is currently $149 at amazon. Which according to a 3rd party tracker is the cheapest it's ever been on amazon. Don't know how long it will be that price. For that price not sure you could find shelves that hold this many for any cheaper short of building them yourself. Just picked myself up a 2nd.
