I looked everywhere for a workable TV stand that was not overpriced, and couldn't be happier with this selection. The pictures do not do this stand justice. It looks extremely rich, and fits in perfectly with our Cherry furniture. It went together very easily, though prepare yourself to apply all the metal trim on each faux drawer of the unit doors. A good very small screw driver made that a breeze. The doors perfectly conceal the amplifier, dvd player, and other components, while I left the TiVo and satellite box both cleanly on the upper exposed shelf. I left off the back cover, to keep all components easily accessible from the rear, though it did have nicely placed cord holes.
I was skeptical about paying so much for something I'd have to assemble myself. However, this media stand is high quality and went together with ease. I assembled it myself in less than 30 mins. You will need two screwdrivers, a medium sized flat head and a small phillips head. It is very sturdy and looks expensive.

It arrived only three days after I ordered it. It was so easy to put together!!!! I did it myself in less than an hour. It fits so well with my furnishings. I have purchased other furnishings in the past and had problems with the fittings not lining up not with this everything fit perfect.
TV stand arrived with expert packaging and was undamaged, even after UPS guy dropped it. Sturdy and very attractive. Assembly was easy until I reached the handle ornamentation. Had to go to hardware story and buy small phillips-head screwdriver in order to work with those very tiny screws. Cabinet doors were ready to hang, so I didn't have to worry about getting them to hang straight. Great price and great product! Overall, a very good experience.
Nice look for a media stand. Depth is narrower than most which is what I was looking for. Note, though, the stand must be anchored to the wall if a tv is to be put on it. This was not mentioned anywhere in description. I ended up mounting tv on wall which was not the original plan.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality was on par for Overstock price, but not for it's theoretical retail price.

We've been looking for a media stand for quite some time and nothing fit our needs until we came across this little dandy. We wanted something on the smaller side that didn't overpower the room. It certainly fit the bill. It's perfect. We use it in our living room so were looking for something that didn't scream "entertainment center" but rather looks more like furniture. It's absolutely beautiful and our components fit perfectly! For the price, I was expecting it to look like cheap laminated wood; I was pleasantly surprised at the rich look of the assembled product. To be fair however, I do have two negative comments: 1) we had to force one of the ends on during the assembly process because the wood on the bottom piece was slightly wider than the spacing on the legs of the end piece, and 2) the magnets could be a little stronger as one of the doors tends to want to remain ajar. I'll solve it by buying stronger magnets.
The stand arrived in perfect condition and the color was absolutely beautiful. I am a single lady in my 60's and was able to put it together in about 3 hours. Not bad for someone that never does this sort of thing. Just drink a glass of wine beforehand and think about your next move before assembling.
The color of this piece is much richer than it looks online. I was very happy when I opened the box. Everything was packed well and was labeled with stickers so you knew which part went where. Directions were very good and even all of the screws and parts were labeled in their own bags. it was mistake proof. Completed the assembly totally alone (I'm a 40something yr old woman). The pieces all have a very nice weight. its a very solid unique piece that I am so happy I purchased. Oh - and I ordered it on a Sunday and it was delivered in Tuesday. all around a smooth purchase.
Buying furniture online makes me nervous. But, this is hands down the best item I've found online. The quality is excellent, and it looks and matches the rest of the room's furnishings perfectly. The only drawback is we chose to place our DVD player inside the cabinet, so we have to open the door to point the remote at it. But, the open shelf above fits DVD players just fine. Great find!
Media stand was shipped on time and the quality is excellent. Left door was received slightly damaged, but a customer service was very responsive and an new one was shipped right away. All in all a quality item with quality customer service. Media stand would make a great addition in any room.
We have had many compliments about this furniture. It looks great and is a little different. However, the assembly was not as easy as anticipated. The hinges on the left side were out of line with the holes in the main cabinet. We had to reposition the whole door to get it to line up with the right hand door. The doors are still not exact, but perhaps only noticeable to us. We are pleased with the quality and value after having searched through many local stores for such an item.
We needed a media cabinet that would fit in the space and blend with our antique furniture and this piece proved itself in no time. It was a bit of a challenge to assemble. There were some missing holes where some of the hardware goes, so we had to use our imagination. Now that it's done, we really like everything about it.
Great style for a reproduction Apothecary cabinet. Relatively easy to put together - there was a slight odor upon uncrating, but went away within the 1st day. For the price this is a really great piece - understand that the front are 2 doors, not multiple drawers - this works great for media cabinet with an "old wold" look to it. Appearance online is extremely close in scale and color to actual.
Easy to put together, its a really nice look piece. Its a little smaller then I had hoped, but I think since I only have a '32 TV. Im planning on getting a bigger TV- I think that Will make a difference. Overall its a rich looking piece- good value!
