Looks great, takes time to assemble
Maria the Dog Groomer from New York, NY
After reading the reviews from others I saw that it would take between 90 minutes and 4 hours to put it together. I took over 4 hours to do it. The assembly is easy but time consuming. The instructions and illustrations are clear. I used a manual screwdriver. A short handled screwdriver was helpful in some places. Be careful when sliding the drawers on the track. I had poor lighting when I did it and one draw went in crooked and it was a bear to take it out and straighten the track out and get it in correctly. The piece of furniture is beautiful. I think it looks like something more expensive than it was. It probably looks as good as the TV stands that cost $600+ and come assembled. We tried putting the cable converter box on a shelf behind a glass door but it got too hot in there. So we ended up putting it in the center open shelf. If we get surround sound speakers I'm not sure where we'd put the center speaker now. The box that was shipped was very heavy and it was hard for me to maneuver.
Really nice stand, with some caveats.

Product arrived in excellent condition. Assembly was fairly easy to follow. Finish on stand was outstanding, except for the single piece on the bottom which although stained, didn't come close to matching the rest of the stand. In several places you are warned to tighten the camlocks that secure the panels together, be very careful doing this as the camlocks are cast from some very cheap alloy that snaps very readily if you exert any decent torque on them. (I manages to break 3 of these by trying to tighten them). The particle boards used for this stand are very well finished except for the edges which are very sharp and will do damage if handled recklessly, both to skin and fabric. I believe that the particle boards should have been of a "denser" composition, but then the cost of shipping this product from China would have increased the overall cost of this stand. I believe that the thickness of the top piece should have been thicker to handle the weight of any bigger TV, since I've seen this material buckle readily over time with any weight on it. (I've used an extra black painted board under my TV to help spread the weight over the center two supports, I've also added another board under the back of the bottom to help support the back of the center two supports). Would I buy this product again? With a little more time to shop, I probably wouldn't. Would I recommend this stand to others? The most charitable answer would be, "It's your money". But it does look "good"!

I was beyond impressed with the quality of this unit, Always afraid of a do it yourself kits but this is one that is worth the money, quality and HEAVY to say the least, only one lil flaw the tracks for the drawers could be alittle better but work fine,just take your time with assembly and it will go together perfect, when you go to install the two shelves tap the metal supports in and shelves will go in easier , hope to enjoy this unit for years

As indicated by previous comments. The TV stand was darker than the picture but still looks great. Actually am happy with the color since we were looking for something like this color - dark cherry. The box arrived on time and very well insulated. It is heavy. So, either get help or unbox everything and move piece(s) to the location of where the TV stand will be placed before assembling. Beware, there is lot of packaging to dispose - styrofoam and cardboard. The instructions were mostly correct. However, the drawers were harder to install compared to the rest of the furniture. We still don't know whether it's installed properly or not. They can be made to fit depending upon how the clips are installed - flip them up rather than down as instructed in the manual. That's reason for 4 stars. Of all the furniture that I've installed - have done a few, this is probably the most sturdy and great fit / finish. I still would recommend this with the caveat of the drawers.

Great product. The color is warm with natural wood tones. It looks much better in person. Assembly was fairly simple and only required time and patience. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. Overall, I was extremely satisfied with the quality of the product. It looks great in my living room.
Great TV Stand...
David from Kernersville, NC – Verified Buyer
I purchased this TV stand several months ago in anticipation of getting my new Samsung 64 in, 3D Smart TV. The stand was easy to assemble (40 minutes). This stand is SOLID!!! The doors and draws fit perfectly. The color matches/blends with my other furniture. When my new TV finally arrived, after assembly the base was mounted and centered leaving only 3/8's of an inch on either side. Everyone who sees my setup is shocked and amazed at this beautiful combination...
Great TV Stand
Mostafa from Montreal, QC – Verified Buyer
We bought this TV stand almost three months ago. The assembly was not difficult. All pieces were perfectly aligned and well labeled. We have a 50" TV which sits very well on the stand. The glasses are very transparent. The depth of cupboards is sufficient. We love the TV stand. The visible pieces are Wood, but the partitions are manufactured wood. However, the stand is very sturdy. No problem at all.

I purchased this product almost a year ago and I have been very pleased. It looks great and people always compliment me on it. It is a large stand, easy to assemble and very strong. Great looking finish, glass doors look great and it is a very neutral piece that can fit anywhere. The drawers do not work very well because the rails are of inferior quality. They use a ball bearing system to slide the rails and they popped out of place on the first drawer I tried to insert.

The media stand arrived very quickly and my husband assembled in less than two hours. The quality of the glass and wood is sound and the wood is less red in the picture and more of a true espresso in person. I would warn that this tv stand is quiet petite in height. It is much shorter than we anticipated, but the amount of storage capacity in the drawers and glass shelves is impressive.
Great for enclosing
Michael from Friendswood, TX
Purchased this to keep all the electronics behind doors away from the munchkins. Works and looks great, however if you have something that runs hit like a PlayStation 3 (4), then you are going to have to vent the neck more than it is otherwise threw PlayStation will overheat. Not a big issue though
