I chose this product as I read that some of the cheaper racks are less durable. My other issue with previous racks I've owned is that they can tend to topple over!
I'm happy with the quality of the product, as the wood finish is very good - having said that, I wouldn't have paid more than I did for it. The CDs also overlap the front so it's easy to pull them out - without the rack toppling over! The rack only holds jewel cases properly though, and won't fix double CDs. That includes the double albums in cardboard cases that are quite popular now, sadly they don't fit (so i have them stacked on top, which is just fine!) All in all, content with this purchase and looks like it will be hard wearing.
