I've just got one of these from discgear

It only holds a 100 dvds - but it looks as though it will be successful.

At the moment I'm leaving all the nice boxsets, tv sets on the shelves.. but this will take my 'lose the standard case' dvds..

I'm rather happy with my two self-made 3-drawer-cabinets, they are not as nice as the ones from Can-Am, but they are way cheaper for someone on the wrong continent. (the shipping would have killed me)

Each drawer will hold 120 DVDs, so the two cabinets are good for 720 ... together with the shelves I'm good for 5 more years of slow buying.
Costs: ~0,55EUR (0,67USD) per disc

the whole shebang ... small but mine
Drawer for the letters 'r' and 's' with room to go
the formerly cluttered shelves, now there is room for the tins and box sets etc.

cya, Mithi

PS Although I must admit that the Discgears look nice too, but losing all the cases is not for me.

Hi Mithi

How have you dealt with the weight of the dvds in the drawer? I've thought about using similar storage for certain parts of my collection, but typically these drawer units are not designed to take much weight and buckle in the middle.
Did you reinforce the bottom of each drawer in some way?

Thanks in advance for any info

Well, as the most expensive part of the whole thing, I used 'Vollauszugschienen'
( 'full extension runners' ) Type "Quadro V6" from Hettich.

The big plus is that the drawer rests on the runners, rather than hanging between them. Additional side-effect: you don't see 'em, even if the drawer is fully extended and they really run smooth like silk. The runners are good for 34kg (75lbs)  and I simply used a 10mm plate as drawer bottom.

The downside is the price, with 210 EUR for the six pairs they are accountable for more than half the money the cabinets cost me. Another 150 EUR went for the wood and 24 EUR for the knobs.

Wow, those are some expensive runners.  The use of ball-bearing for them is quite interesting.  Are they as quiet as the website says they are?
Gotta nip it in the bud, Andy!

Yes they are, but worth every Cent of it in my humble opinion.

Well they do have this slight swishing sound ballbearings do have, but it is rather pleseant and really hushed.

I found that out as well, after a few minutes playing on their site

Table easel: RAKET from IKEA. I just shortened the legs so it fits better onto my shelves.
An unoccupied one is visible on the Receiver, this one labeled "Now Playing" and holds the case of a DVD while I watch the movie.

I too was worried about finding a great disk storage unit and I found one that holds 540 disks but I now have a better solution.  There is a new DVD player that holds 400 disks and when used with DVD profiler it is a cinch to use.  If you have more than 400 disks you can buy multiple players and connect them together.  For about the same price you will pay for a storage cabinet you can buy this player from Sony at about $350.00.  I have one and plan on getting 3 more.  That way I never have to put another DVD in the player again.  For those who have this player and have any problems like a power outage, can buy a battery powered surge protector that keeps power on for a few hours if power is interrupt.

I have already filled two bookcases and now use one of the DJ style cases to store discs in. Put all the cases in a cardboard box out of site and the discs themselves in the DJ cases, uses a lot less space and easier to find.
