I'll discuss the pros first. I was impressed with the packaging. Every piece survived the rigors of transport without damage. The assembly instructions use a series of pictograms to guide you through the process, which is relatively straight-forward. A helper is recommended because some of the pieces are difficult to maneuver by yourself. Once assembled, this unit is sturdy and solid, exactly what a TV stand should be. This is an attractive corner unit that will go well with many interior decorating styles. It's contemporary design includes several classic features (e.g., beveled edges, a semi-pedestal base, and hinged, glass-faced doors). It has a semi-gloss finish that is thinly-applied, avoiding the plastic-coated look of less-expensive furniture. The appealing grain of the wood veneer is plainly visible under the finish. My TV looks very comfortable sitting on top of the unit, and I have various stereo components tucked neatly behind the glass doors.
However, there are some issues with this unit that a prospective buyer should be aware of. First, there are far fewer components made of solid wood than anticipated from Overstock's description. The door frames, top and bottom, 2 interior shelves, and 2 of the 4 side components are veneer over wood. The rest of the unit is comprised of veneer over MDF. Many of the latter are important structural elements. Second, the hardware that holds everything together is made of relatively soft metal. You must be very careful when assembling the stand. I do not recommend using a power driver; too much force will cause the connectors to fail. I was very careful when using my screwdriver but still managed to snap 2 connectors off in the wood. Finally, buyers are supplied with a small tube of glue, but its purpose is left unexplained. (I suppose that pictograms aren't very good at illustrating what to do with glue). I suspect that you are supposed to glue in the many wooden dowels that hold components together. If that is the case, I recommend that you discard the children's glue that came with the unit and use carpenter's cement instead. Finally, the interior of the TV stand is a mere 15.5 inches deep and is partitioned into left and right halves by a vertical divider. This very important configuration is not apparent from Overstock.com's description. Most high-end audio components will not fit into the divided space very easily.
As long as you make an informed decision about purchasing this unit, you will not be disappointed.

How accurate was the on site description of the product? The product description was accurate regarding the exterior features of the unit but useless regarding the configuration of the interior storage space.
Just had to say what a great easy purchase this was. It arrived in two days and I assembled it within 10 minutes. My TV looks great and the finish is very nice. It's a sturdy piece of furniture with great storage. The price was just right
I purchased this corner unit to hold a 55" flat screen tv (which is actually measures 52" across). The tv fit with about an inch on each side hanging off but it still looks great. The piece looks very rich and it is definitely sturdy. There is plenty of storage room inside.

It's a very nice piece of furniture and looks lovely in our home. Wish the piece came with ventilation/wire holes in the back panel. Husband had to cut his own. The delivery also came with a dented top and a broken door. Dealing with Monarch was fast and easy just disappointing that the packaging didn't prevent the damage during transportation.
It will easily support up to a 55" television if you don't mind the edges of the TV extending beyond the stand by a couple of inches. If you have a black framed TV, it will look just about seamless.
A definite recommend if you can't afford a 100% hardwood piece of furniture. You will not be disappointed in the styling and presentation this piece makes in your home.

I need to understand how far it extends into the room - what is the measurement from the front of the cabinet to the corner of the room? If you don't have this number can you get it from the manufacturer or tell me who it is so I can? Thanks.kmb100 on May 28, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
