I am looking for sturdy plastic CD storage units.

We just moved from a home (with a man cave), to a town house. We had to down size.
I have a 2500 CD collection which I am attached to and it pains me to put them into storage but I understand it is the reality until we buy a new home in a few years.
Right now, the CD's are in cardboard archive boxes sitting in our basement. While my father-in-law (our landlord) insists that it is dry down there, our movers expressed concern about the 'dampness' they felt in the air, and said my CD's wouldn't last the winter without the booklets getting ruined.
I am looking to transfer them into similar type boxes but in clear plastic so I can easily browse when I want to.
I found two scenario's:

Granted, this wasn't a long search....but both of these may serve my needs....Wanted to see if anyone had other suggestions or places to check out....
I do not want to take them out of the jewel cases and put them into portable albums, and yes, I know that CD's are in the past....I am well into the digital age, but I am not ready to sell off my collection completely. In the last year I got it down from 4500 CD's. I have a 'weird' emotional attachment to keeping these in my life...
Your idea's and suggestions are welcome!
