yeah they're good
cheap to buy, obviously would be cheaper if you made one yourself, but its ridiculously easy to set up and its pretty damn sturdy
no complaints from me
only thing its missing is shelves, but they're easy enough to add
that sideways is what I use. got a pair of 1210s and a vestax pcv175 on it with space to spare (not much, but enough for a beer or 2 importantly) and seems sturdy enough. not had it too long, but it is pretty sweet having all that perfect vinyl shelving underneath. lovely stuff!
