I love the way this floating TV stand looks in my living room. Considering all the manual work required for assembly, this was not hard to install at all. Before you begin assembly I would recommend a small Phillips screwdriver (5 inch or less), but other than that it's all pretty straight forward. Would get again if I had to move to a new apartment.

This works for us except be aware that it does not fit a full size receiver! It was our over sight to not careful review picture #5 but the main picture shows a full size receiver. The opening height is only 6" and our receiver is slightly over 7"! They should have made this opening at least 7". Otherwise it seems like a good product.
I was easy to assemble though it is extremely heavy! I managed to assemble and install it on my own (40 something female!) but I wouldn't recommend it. A second set of hands when hanging it on the brackets would have been SOOOOO nice! Try to get all the cords assembled and attached through the back before you hang it. I had a heck of a time once it was on the wall. It looks amazing, has tons of DVD storage and hides all the cords! We love it.
For $***, this is great. By no means is it a high end piece of furniture, but it adds a modern look and is very functional. I hired handymen to build / mount it to my wall and they were done within an hour. Looks great, and saves lots of floor space. Only downfall is that you can see through to the back -- mounting strip / wires -- but it is an easy fix if you add picture frames, books etc to cover the open space. Really happy with this.
We ordered a smaller version of this floating TV stand & loved it so much we decided to order this version for our big TV... our only disappointment is that the electronic shelves on this piece don't have a black backing like the smaller unit... this makes it look really messy as you can see all the wires and also the hanging hardware. Now we are trying to figure out what we can have made to fill that open space.
This TV stand gets the clutter up off the floor with a nice clean look. The instructions were easy to follow. Overstock staff were right on it,. I ordered the stand on ****** evening and by ******** afternoon, arrived at my front door. It took me less than a hour to put it together and up on the wall.
Nice price, good quality. Only had it about 3 weeks, wanted something modern and doesn't take up a lot of space. Took about 40 minutes to put it together and install it upon the wall. Wasn't too hard. I would recommend. Very happy with my purchase so far. Man cave upgraded.
I used this as a hanging headboard for our king size bed. Works great for this. I would of purchased a longer one if they had it to go across the whole length of the bed. This piece can be used in many ways. The ease of putting it together is a huge plus. Packaging was great and delivery was quick. Very happy with the purchase. The only drawback with using it as a headboard was you can see the track that holding the shelf up. I used tan duck tape to camouflage it. A board across it would be better though. Still a great product though.
Very easy to assemble - Leave screws in wall slightly loose to hook cabinet to wall then tighten the rest of the way - fishing electrical wires and HDMI cords was simple - Opening on bottom is too small to plug cords in before putting surge protector up into hideaway hole - Put surge protector inside and turn upside down to connect power cords then turn it over to slide up inside the opening - This cabinet hides all the wiring beautifully and looks nice on the wall
I don't know, this is kind of hard to review. My wife and I fell in love with the picture on the website. So, I ordered it without even checking prices on other websites. Sadly, I could have gotten it a few dollars cheaper if I had done my research, but that isn't important since that isn't really about the product itself. The product itself seems sturdy. If there hadn't been a chunk of finish missing, I would have been very impressed. It came with a marker to cover up flaws, so I used that to cover up the scratches and the missing chunk. It is hardly noticeable, but I know it is there. My wife still loves it, but I'm on the fence. The base of my TV is literally bigger than the platform on which it now sits. Not by much, but it is bigger. Check your measurements carefully before you buy this. Lastly, and perhaps most important, it is very difficult to run the wires. You can try to run the wires before you mount it, but then you are adding the weight of your players and speakers, etc. or you can do what I did, and run the wires after the fact. I have very skinny hands and arms, so with difficulty, I was able to run all the wires, but I do wish it had been easier. Also, the recommended height is higher than I would like my TV to sit. Like I said, my wife loves it, so I'm keeping it. The build quality would have been great if it weren't for that piece of finish being missing. I do not think it was damage during shipping. I think it was damaged before packaging, but it wasn't caught. It was a lot easier to assemble than I would have expected, and all the pieces fit together quite nicely considering. I just wish I had done a bit more research on pricing and measurements before I ordered it.
