    I'm currently using three different kinds of shelves for my blurays/games/cds, and they're all super full. These are the ones I'm using:
    Amazon.com: Atlantic Maxsteel 3020 432 CD/228 DVD/114 VHS/ 8-Tier Media Rack Black: Electronics
    Amazon.com: Sauder Graham Hill Multimedia Storage Tower Autumn Maple: Office Products
    Amazon.com: Prepac Oak Triple Width Wall Media (DVD,CD,Games) Storage Rack: Home & Kitchen

    I'm thinking about replacing all my shelves with matching ones, and possibly adding wall mounted shelves because I've got plenty of wall space and nowhere near enough floor space :D

    Anyway, what sort of shelving are yall using?

    I think this is why they invented streaming, :D.

    Can't stream a ps3 game :D

    I'd like to have a nice big fileserver for my movies and all that, but the cost would be too much for me right now. I do rip all my cds though.

    Anyway, streaming or not, I'd still need a place to keep all the discs/cases :D

    Can't you download them?

    I use a very old open shelf made out of pine 1x4. If I build a shelf I'd probably use something similar. I'm too cheap to pay for that much oak.

    Not all ps3 games are downloadable, but even if they were I would much rather buy the disc. I like having the physical copy (same with movies and music).

    I do make exceptions though, because getting games on steam is so damned cheap on steam, and I also buy games for the wii virtual console.

    My dvd drive on my xbox is going out so disc based is out of the loop, but I rarely play games long enough to really have the disc worth it.

    I just buy a lot of games and never play them :(

    Out of the last 40 games I've purchased, I've probably played 3 of them.

    I like collecting them though.

    Meh. I have too many movies and CDs already. The shelf I wanted they don't sell anymore :( I play all of my games and finish about 90% of them.

    I wanted this one with frosted glass, but they only make the clear one now (not that the clear is bad either):

    They sell a double of that one as well. That one rack probably won't hold all of my BDs alone right now.

    I am thinking about one like the first one you listed, the wire rack now. How do you like it? I need something adjustable ideally, but the glass one is already setup to handle the size of everything already.

    The wire one isn't bad. A bit wobbly on my carpet, but that's why it's up against a wall :D The shelves are a lot more sturdy than the particle board shelves on my other units, and it's pretty inexpensive.

    Timely thread for me, because my movie bookshelf is getting pretty jammed up now. I saw this really sweet looking wall mountable system years ago, it might* have been from IKEA, and I even think I posted the pic here years ago, but I doubt I can find it. It was someone else's pic that I grabbed off of AVS, IIRC. When I have the time to spare, maybe I'll try running all kinds of searches, but I'm going to keep tabs on what you find out during the meanwhile.

    Cool, had a moment, and I found it way more quickly than I thought I would. (I posted it here 3.5 years ago.)

    LERBERG CD/DVD wall shelf - dark gray - IKEA

    edit: Oh well, this is not really for me, I could do with a taller dimension; they won't fit enough for the limited space I could make for them. Looks nifty though.

    Those look perfect. Cheap, too. Shipping can be relatively expensive, but it looks like if I can order up to 7 at a time and the shipping fee will stay at $10 :)

    This is what I store all my media cases in:

    This is where all my movies go (times five of these)...

    I put them all in my Middle Atlantic equipment rack (similar to this):

    Check out cdracks.com I got a really nice storage unit from them. And is does not take up a lot of floor space.

    Maybe I'll have a rack like that one of these days, but it's definitely not any time soon lol

    I'll check em out, thanks :)

    I have one of those, and I'm already out of room D: Decent shelf though.
