Our console looks great and is strong and sturdy. The delivery service was very good, no problems whatsoever, and no damage found on a thorough inspection. The piece looks simple and elegant and houses all of our tv components without clutter. I think the stain is a bit darker than the pictures shows it on my monitor (appears a little more walnut online to me), but is the espresso color described, which is what we wanted. It looks great with our espresso leather furniture. If this has veneered components like another review claims, they are the thickest and most cleverly applied veneers I've ever seen. My console is solid and heavy with good workmanship. I was especially impressed with the drawers, after having had an mdf & cardboard console for the few years prior- they are deep and solid wood, with the felt bottom lining as mentioned in the description, but they are unfinished inside. This doesn't bother me, but it might surprise someone else, so worth mentioning. I give the console 4 stars only because we have found it fairly easy to scratch. Nothing unmanageable, but it will require a little caution and some maintenance with a stain pen. Overall, were very happy with this purchase. Our last console cost about half the price, and we had to put it together out of its cheap materials and watch it fall apart. The Avalon is way more than twice as nice and has been a great upgrade.
We searched for quite a while prior to deciding on this stand, and we are generally pleased with the Avalon TV Stand. The price was fair, when compared to similar stands. The quality of the stand is good, though we've noticed a few days after delivery that the draws don't open and close as smooth as they should, and one of the handles seem to be slightly crooked. There also isn't enough room for our audio equipment, but I suppose that's our fault for not properly measuring prior to purchase. Overall the stand is beautiful, and sturdy. The only reason for the four stars and not five, are the few quirks listed above, and the fact that it took so long for it to arrive. A FULL six weeks. It was delivered, however assembled and surprisingly with no visible dents or scratches. I would actually rate it 4.5 stars if I could.
Very happy with this one. Comes fully assembled, packing was good - no damage at all. Everything looks like it should and works well - openings for electronic equipment actually a little large than I expected. Overall very happy with this one and would recommend.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Fairly close - definitely a very dark brown. You can still see wood grain patterns in it, so not a painted black
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems very solid

It would be nice to rate this item higher, but after two of them arriving damaged and subsequently waiting months to have the third one arrive in tact, I was severely disappointed. The packaging material does a good job protecting the surface from being scratched. The issue I had was the item was obviously dropped on one of the corners. The wood frame for the box was very flimsy, made from particle board, and arrived in pieces along with the corner/legs of the TV console completely smashed in. This happened on the first one I ordered and the first replacement. Overstock customer support was helpful and quickly ordered a replacement, however it does take about 3 weeks to arrive. I wasted a significant amount of time and energy dealing with having replacements delivered. I had to take multiple hours off of work to wait for the three deliveries and had my TV sitting on the floor for months. Overstock customer support said they would contact me after the third delivery was made to, but I have yet to hear from them. Now that the third one finally arrived undamaged, I am happy with the product, but don't be surprised if shipping takes its toll on your order. Worth ordering....if it arrives in one piece.
Quality of the item was great, but arrived damaged a second time. The first time, there was one driver sent to left this 160 item (misstated weight online) to my doorstep. The first delivery arrived with a cracked wooden corner, as if the package was dropped of smashed in. Because white glove service was not offered, the driver would lift this over sized item over the 2 steps leading to my townhouse. My options were to reschedule, paying for white glove service and missing another day from work to receive the item again. Or, leaving it a lifting it myself. I did not discover the crack until the packaging was removed. I called Overstock and the service rep fixed the problem, although short and curt on tone. Not pleased! The second send much smoother. Overstock picked up the damaged items and white gloved the new one. This one has a drawer that is misaligned. Overall the quality was good, but I wish Overstock had accurately stated the weight to begin with.
very nice love it clean lines and very well made comes in one piece

Very heavy piece of furniture with a nice dark color. Delivery was excellent. We had one small place on one of the shelves which does not show one you put your cable box etc in there. Customer Service was unbelievably nice and responsive and offered us a new piece or some $$ off what we had paid if we wanted o keep the one we received. We took the $$!!!
Console is exactly the right size for our living room, it is sturdy, well-built, looks very nice, did not need assembly, which is always a plus in my book. The delivery package included white glove service which meant that it was brought in, placed in the exact place we wanted it, and the crew cleaned up after they were done, so it was excellent service. On the whole, this was a very positive experience.
stand is way better than everybody states. Its just a tv stand. I am one of those guys who is super picky about everything. everything is as i thought, but the color is BLACK. i see the brown but it's so so so dark it looks black. If i knew this i woudln't have bought it but it is what it is and i don't feel like messing with a return. Other than that is perfect. JUST KNOW IT's PRETTY MUCH BLACK!
