I asked this question on this forum a little while ago, and I was recommended an Atlantic 500-disc rack. It's pretty terrible, and bad quality as well. Pieces were missing, and I figured it wasn't worth the trouble.

Accounting for the slightly skinner HD DVDs, as well as the TV season sets, anthologies, trilogies, and all that: it would work out to roughly 500 DVDs, give or take, in terms of space.

Now, does anybody know of a high quality DVD rack (that's around or under 500$) that will hold all of the movies with room to spare?

Thanks in advance.

You could check www.Boltz.com. They have quite a few and they allow room for expansion.

I think I post this link like every other week. Check out RacksandStands.com (http://www.racksandstands.com/View-A...ge-C61814.html) for a huge variety of options (or ideas).

Was the assembly easy or hard? Did it take long?

Also, how is their shipping?

I have two of these in Red Cherry in my theater. Very high quality and great price. They are $400 a piece and hold about 450 DVDs each.

I will second Racks and Stands.

Here's a good fact about them: They will price match just about anyone. I've used this policy myself on two different items. Find the same item on another website, call or email them, and they will meet or beat the price.

I was able to find a matching item at a website that I wouldn't necessarily trust, and Racks and Stands actually beat the price when I contacted them. They're very friendly about it, too.

I highly recommend them,

Scott

Don't know how handy you are......I simply built shelves recessed in one wall. My side and rear walls are dark burgandy and I painted the recessed shelving area black. I think it looks much better than a stand. Also, as my room is not quite as wide as I would like it, stands simply eat up more real estate in the room.

Having said that, the stands that have been posted here certainly do look nice.

Just a different thought.

Cheers,
Jay

My favorite are these modern-looking, solid steel racks that mount directly to the wall. Each shelf is adjustable and comes with two vertical end-stops per shelf to organize the media. Additional racks can be mounted side-by-side if more storage is needed (be sure to order a spacer kit).

The rack doesn't look like much from the picture but looks great on the wall once you fill it up. Because it's steel (choice of black or silver), you don't have to worry about matching wood color to the rest of the room decor. It just blends in with wall behind it.

I have thought about making shelves.
But I don't want to recess anything in my walls and by the time I buy all the materials to make a shelf similar to what I am thinking of buying, I will have spent darn near as much and even more when you consider my time.

I don't know.. $150 seems a bit steep to me.



Especially when it only holds about 220 DVD's.

I agree, I wouldn't put shelves up that stuck out into the room. Like I said, for me the decision was easy as I needed to recess them to preserve the width of the room.

I'm sure you will find something nice.

Jay

Anyone have any experience with the carousel type racks? Are these things solid under a full load?

Here's an example

I have to start this off by saying "I am in no way good at working with wood"
This was my first try at doing some thing like this, it took a 3 day weekend...but I got what I was trying for
total cost about $150...
Hope this inspires someone else to try it.



If you want more info and pictures on the unit they are here

Wow!
I'm not sure if I'm saying this right but to me it looks like your dvd rack is sheetrock instead of wood. You dvd rack looks just like the wall to the right of it. Does anyone else understand what I'm trying to say?

Billy Baggs makes some nice racks: web site.

They're not the cheapest, but the build quality is high. I've got one of the DVD storage racks, although for my next storage project I ended up putting in my own shelving. Not too hard to do overall and certainly the cheapest solution...

Anyone buy this Sky Mall Media Storage rack? It comes in a few different sizes. For me, I think it's down to the Leslie Dame CD-1500-B from rack and stands or the skymall one. The skymall triple 76" can hold over 300+ more then the Leslie one, but costs a lot more to get it shipped. Decisions, decisions, lol.

Just Like Ray Jr. I went the built-in style. If you are just starting or in the middle of a construction project it's not hard to build them into the wall. It gives a nice finished look.







Good Luck with your search.

This looks amazing!!! How did you do this? I'd love to attempt something like this.

I'd love to see more pictures of your theater.
