Not what we were expecting

To keep it short and sweet, although the design of this unit was exactly what we wanted, it wasn't until after assembly that we realised the colour was several shades darker than it appears in the photo. We are using the unit, but unfortunately it doesn't match the lighter walnut decor in the rest of the room...

Does the job

It took about an hour to assemble, but when finished this storage rack is very sturdy and the shelves do not bow at all (which was something I feared before it arrived because there are no vertical supports along the shelves). The lack of vertical supports gives increased storage space compared to other shelving of a similar size.

Easier to assemble than expected

No problems assembling despite what other customers have said, particularly if you change the order of steps in the instructions, e.g. move the unit into position before fitting the loose shelves and fit the surround after the unit is in place. Unit looks great when loaded with CDs as has been said, but an extra 5-10mm height for each shelf would have helped to accommodate larger box sets and digipak types.

How does 'Encore' compare with other, similar Argos products?

I'm eager to know how the 'Encore' CD/DVD storage unit (No. 872/0588) compares with the similar product No. 872/0739, and also with the 'Harrogate' (875/1935). (I'm interested personally in CD storage, not DVDs.) The 'Harrogate' is criticised slightly online for shelves sagging when fully loaded with CDs -- does the design of the 'Encore', and/or of No. 872/0739, differ significantly from the 'Harrogate''s such that this problem might be alleviated, and if so how? Secondly, what is the difference, if any, between the 'Encore' and No. 872/0739 apart from a slight difference in dimensions? Do they have the same number of shelves? Which is better in terms of robustness and looks/finish, and is either preferable if the aim is NOT to affix it to the wall?

Hi, thank you for your question.

Having looked into your query, I can confirm that each of the above catalogue numbers you have provided are different effects, i.e beech, pine and oak.
They all store up to 760 CDs and 378 DVDs, having slight differences in dimensions.
Each product is freestanding and has 9 shelves; the Harrogate and the pine bookshelf having one fixed shelf.

I am unable to give you our opinion as to which of these is more robust and which finish would be to your satisfaction. This is why we have customer reviews to assist you in making this decision.

I have outlined the information that is provided within the product description. I hope that having summarised this information for you, you will be able to make a decision as to which media storage product you intend to purchase.

Thank you for using Q & A.

How many DVDs?

One description says 300 DVDs, the other says 378 DVDs. That is a huge difference. Which is it? Thanks

Hi there,

I have checked for the Encore DVD/CD Storage - Walnut and this is free standing only, holds up to 730 CDs and up to 300 DVDs/Blu-rays. If used to store DVDs only some of the shelves will require DVDs to be stored horizontally.

Thank you for your question and hope you enjoy the rest of the day!
