my collection

Currently these are 800 DVDs - fewer than your 900. Theoratically these shelves can hold more than 2500 amaray-sized DVD cases.

But before that happens I will move to a larger apartment.

ROFLMAO, kahless. I am actually looking at rolling shelving which would look very much like that picture but smaller.

I am looking to do the same the other side. if i could work out how to put a photo in here for show, I would!

I think a rolling shelving system is quite a good space-saving idea (like some pharmacies have...)

At the moment I'm using all available walls of my home for dvd and book shelves. Looks much better than some boring and space wasting pictures on the wall.

I've got three big shelving units, one small shelving unit and one big random shelf, as well as three boxes, four bins, and about twenty to forty DVDs on the floor.   Not great, but it's the best I can do now with my 1700 DVDs.  The problem is that I have to change the way I place them every 2 months or so because I keep getting more.

I'm creaping up on 600 DVD's myself. Awhile ago I decided to repackage my dvds into NexPak THINpak™ dvd cases. They cost like $35 for 65 shipped. I have literally doubled by shelf space by doing this.

After work, I will have to snap a pic of what I have now.  I have around 550 and use cheap shelves from Walmart.  It works for now because I go through a collection dump once or twice a year (including this weekend).

Great! Exactly what I was looking for.
I'd prefer the lateral system. I'll have to look for a distributor in Germany now.
It all seems so stupid, it makes me want to give up!
But why should I give up, when it all seems so stupid?

Hi everyone,

I use the Atlantic Elf shelves... http://www.atlantic-inc.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=ELF464C47  Though I buy it at around $50 cdn. What I like about these is; I can stack it up to the ceilling. Instead of the 4 feet shelves that other models provide...
Of course, I will eventually be running out of walls... Some are already in cartboard boxes.

Salut!

I've had some shelves made and it ended up like this:

(Empty - Angle 1)
(Empty - Angle 2 - CD shelves on the left)
(Pic from about 2/3 months ago, shortly after having the shelves installed)

They're about 3.10 meters (~ 10.2 feet) wide.
And I'm afraid that the empty spaces won't last long, taking into account how much space already disappeared since this picture was taken... 
With every passing hour our solar system comes forty-three thousand miles closer to globular cluster M13 in the constellation Hercules, and still there are some misfits who continue to insist that there is no such thing as progress.
