TV Stand good value
CJ from Fredericksburg, VA – Verified Buyer
My husband and his son assembled this item. I think he said it took them under an hour for assembly and that it was quite heavy in the box ... It required both of them to take it up the stairs. This is not a high-end piece of furniture, but the price was a good value and it looks okay. I have a white TV stand now and the black TV just didn't look right on it ... I wanted a black one to match the TV to help it "blend in" with the TV and the fireplace surround. There is plenty of space for all of our component equipment. Note though that there is no concealed space for Blu-Rays/DVDs in this unit, but we hardly ever use ours anymore anyway so that's no big deal to us. I would recommend to someone looking for a good sized TV stand with housing for component equipment!

Pieces we're complete and it took nearly 3.5 hours to assemble it. I just took my time to not to miss anything. The base metals are fine and still shiny. The quality of wood is just good. There are some other levels drilled to adjust the appropriate height based on needs. Actually it helped me to add another level for each of 3 existing opening which I prefer to use glass. If you are into DIY or just going to try this is a good one, I'm intending to add a one piece door for the middle opening. Do not try to pull it on the floor when moving it. If you are alone do it by lifting one end at a time, this prevents your expensive hard floor or the carpet being scratched by its metal bases. When prevention why cure.
The Perfect Solution!

We have a beautiful black glass Italian dresser. This Contemporary TV Stand looks as if it was made to rest on top of this piece. It allows us to enjoy TV and stereo in our bedroom and looks as elegant as the rest of our bedroom furniture.
Very nice, but one thing missing...
Vince from United States – Verified Buyer
For the money, this is one of the nicest-looking stands you can buy. The tempered glass looks dark at night and pleasant during the day, and the metal feet give it a very modern look. The middle cavity is perfectly spaced for most 5.1 system middle speakers. My Onkyo middle speaker fits absolutely snug in the top of the middle cavity and that is just plain awesome. The only thing missing is that the feet do not come with any kind of rubber or felt stopper underneath them, so it's just bare metal on ground. On my tile floor, the entire unit was unbalanced until I paid $6 at a local store for some adhesive pads to attach to the feet. Now it sits perfectly and is a wonderful addition to my TV room. If you're looking for a great, inexpensive TV stand, this one is great. Just spend a few extra bucks at a local hardwareretail store and get some furniture pads for the bottom.

I love this entertainment stand. It has more than enough room for all components, and I like the fact that it has a glass door on each end, which helps to hide some components and the black basket I bought for the couple of hundred remotes that seem to grow. The one thing I wasn't very pleased with, is the backing. It barely fits the back of the stand, and the little nails provided are a bit too small. If you aren't careful, the nails can be pounded through the cardboard and miss the stand altogether.

good space, good for keeping children out. Be careful that consoles do not overheat.
Good Look & Good Value!
Winnie from Frisco, TX – Verified Buyer
Easy to assemble. Even a 5 ft tall woman like me can handle it. The only thing is the middle leg somehow is a little taller than the legs at the corners. I use 4 felt pads at the corner legs so the unit can be slided easily & it works out great. The unit wobbles without the pads. It was not the legs themselves but the spacing of the predrilled holes that caused this, I think. The depth of the unit fits my receiver only marginally. You need add an inch or so to allow for the the cable connectors to the back of your receiver. So you may not want to nail the back panel all in until after you positioned & connected all the equipment. I had to leave one session of the back panel not nailed it to get an extra inch out of it. It was lucky I have a built in space for the unit so the back penal is out of sight. This is not solid wood. I found solid wood over-rated since today's electronics are so light weight & conpact. We used to need to move every few years. If that's the case, I would recommend solid wood so it can endure all the abuse when in transit. If you plan to stay put for a awhile, I do recommend this unit.
Looks better in the picture
Jeremy from Charlotte, NC – Verified Buyer
While I like the style of this stand, the quality leaves a lot to be desired, in my opinion. The finish in particular is thin and scratches easily. Mine arrived with several scratches already on it, though the box showed no signs of poor handling. While attaching the doors, one of them slipped while I was aligning the screws and left a 1" scratch from less than a 1" drop. When I say scratches, I mean I can see down to bare "wood" or whatever this is and you can tell the finish is quite thin. The design of the feet also makes this difficult to move; they like to dig into the carpet instead of sliding. They would be a nightmare on a hardwood floor without something under them. Also, without the back panel attached (I left it off for better ventilation of my electronics) it's pretty flimsy. Try to move it when it already has things in it (combined with the feet issue) and be ready for the top to move and the bottom to go nowhere. It didn't break, but it did bend quite a lot.

I left the legs off, perfect height for electronics to be under the window sill when the tv is mounted above the fireplace. I put it all together then realized how small the holes were for wires. I had to buy a dremel and saw out larger chunks for the amount of wires I have coming out of my receiver. Would've been much easier had I checked before nailing it in. I suggest you do that!
great as adevetised strong and useful. 140 pound tv no problem

I glued my stand together. not needed but I felt better. took about 1.5 hours to build and about the same to load it up. works well for intended use. May get another when I need one ... if you need it friend get it. it is worth it and the store is on top of everything. no need for any customer service because they did it right the first time.
