I've started putting mine into simple A4 folders in clear sleeves. Works well for standard DVDs and the old Warner snapper card covers, but make sure you get folder with four rings to support the weight.

Thanks for that, I had noticed you mentioned four rings earlier and makes sense. Glad I don't have as many as you to do though

I've been ruthless with my collection - anything that isn't in 'special' packaging has been put into a 1000 disc DJ box & the cover/insert have been put in with the recycling. Has freed up a lot of space

I'm dreading moving - I've got 600 DVDs and 3,000 CDs. Not quite sure quite what the best way to store them will be. I'm relatively happy to lose the DVD cases, but less so with the CDs. Anyone seen any large CD storage (1,000 say) shelving solutions that are reasonably priced?

To ship two of these ($399 or £200) would cost £191 shipping!! That's almost the same price as the shelves themselves and before I start with customs fees!! I thought that was a bit excessive until I went on UPS's site and put in the details for myself which turned out at over 800CAD!!

Not sure whether to go for it or not now.

I looked at the Billys before but I didn't realise you could buy the singles and add them along.

I would like you all to also note that the cupboard can take another 8 of those drawers which wll give me a final capacity of 4,800 disks!

Can you get a picture of inside the case, so can see what the disks look like?

thanks

I was wondering if you could confirm, now you've had these trays for over a year, if they were a worthwhile, well-built purchase. I'm looking into ordering a couple soon but would be grateful to hear feedback from someone who's lived with them for awhile. Thanks in advance.

Yes, very sturdy. I only put 150 disks in each drawer as 200 packs them in to close but that's still 300 dvds stored per unit.

Sometimes the simplest solutions can be found where you least expect it. Facing the same problem, I suddenly 'discovered' a very convenient niche in a corner of my house where I decided to put up shelving to store DVDs. It is deep enough to easily take DVD cases and because of the width and height, can snugly take over 1000 DVDs without getting in anyone's or anything's way. Moreover, it is in just the right place where it is neither too cold nor warm and where damp can never get in.

I'm really tempted to rip all of my DVDs to network storage and stream them via my Xbox 360... I'm not sure if I could get each DVD down to a sensible size and still maintain quality though...

Hi all, was just revisitng this thread for the link I posted for the company selling the drawers. It's taken me a while but there are now 900 movies in the drawers with just a couple of 100 left to put away.

While filing everything away I've catalogued in DVDProfiler and have the mobile app on my pda/phone. This combination makes it really quick to look up a film and find where it is in the drawers. It also means when I'm out at bootfairs etc.. I don't end up buying something I already have.

I'm in the process of ripping everything to DiVX and putting on my home network. Each movie ends up at around 1Gb so just a couple of 500Gb drives to have everything instantly available. I have a networked DVD player in the lounge, plus everyone in the house has a laptop. I can also watch them on my wifi Archos portable player. I even have a tablet PC on a monitor arm next to the bed!

Who are you? A Bond villian?!

The picture quality must take a big hit ripping to 1gb though?

Biggest screen in the house is a 32" and they look fine on that. I rip to 720 wide in DiVX. It's a compromise. The disks are all there if I need them but also instantly accessable if you don't want to go hunting for something to watch.

I ordered one of these earlier in the year from a UK based company. Build quality was good, although the magnets for the doors aren't strong enough so i've put some better ones on.
