This is a nice looking unit, but it's made of cheap and low quality/density melamine wood, which can crack easily (two pieces arrived damaged - the base and the back panel). Overstock were quick to replace the damaged pieces, and once I put it together (which was easy), I liked the way it looked. The black finish is nice. Be careful though, as it can damage easily with nicks and dents (the wood is quite soft). Overall, for the price it's a good deal. One thing to keep in mind is that the unit is not deep enough to store audio components such as most home theater receivers (it does fit most DVD players).
My husband put this piece together and thought it was fairly straight forward. Took under an hour total, I'd say. The only complaint we have is that on one side there is a hole that a screw went into and the sticker that should cover it, so it will blend better, was not included. The sticker is totally the cheesy way to cover it in the first place BUT it would be better than nothing. Luckily we have it positioned so it is almost impossible to notice. Otherwise it looks good and seems to be sturdy. We have a 46" flat-screen on it and it is a great fit. The whole piece is fairly slim and is a good fit for our small-ish living room.
Overall I am very impressed. I got the stand just 3 days after placing the order. I was worried that there would be damage to the stand seeing as how its shipping across the country, but the packaging was exceptional. It took me about 45 minutes to put this stand together. It looks even better than the picture. The knobs are even metal not cheap plastic like I was expecting. Great stand!!
I only selected this unit because it was the perfect size for a nook that i was trying to fill. That being said it looks great for the price but be very careful with the top, the wood is very soft and dented easily while we were assembling it and then the edge actually chipped as we barely bumped it. I colored it in with a sharpie. Not sure how long it will keep looking good, but as long as no one touches it we're good.
I ordered this TV stand a number of years back and love it. It is so well made, sturdy and strong, easy to assemble. Is just perfect for my TV and components. I keep tapes, CD's etc in the cabenits. You can't go wrong with this product.
I wanted to get a television stand, but couldn't afford to pay alot of money for one at the moment. It turned out to be better than I expected especially for the cost. I am very happy and it fits my 46" television. My husband and 7 year old daughter put it together in two hours. It was quick and easy.

I am so pleased with this product. The quality and design are exactly what I hoped for. The price was an outstanding deal. When shopping in stores I could only find outrageous prices on outdated styles or similar designs that looked like they wouldn't last. I am very happy with this purchase.

My husband and I weren't sure what to expect ordering a console table to hold our dish box and DVD player online, but this far exceeded our expectations. Assembly was easy! I was able to put it together and surprise my husband with it when he got home (took about and hour or hour and half to assemble). Looks classy, sleek and modern! Highly recommend!

I've had this TV stand for a couple of years now and it's still holding up amazing! It's even gone through a couple of moves and made it in one piece. It is pretty small so if you are looking to up grade anytime soon you might want to consider that. Otherwise I love it!
My husband spent a long time putting this together, and there was some frustration since certain areas wouldn't line up and get flush despite our best efforts. Also, the holes for the cabinet handles aren't drilled evenly...our handles are very noticeably at different heights, which makes it look cheap. Annoyed to have spent this kind of money on something with that type of shoddy work. However, the stand as a whole feels pretty sturdy once assembled, there is a lot of room for storage, it's attractive enough for budget furniture, and it's a nice height for a flat-screen TV. If only the handles were even, I would have given it another star since it's visually so obvious as a flaw.
