My roommate and I just put together this armoire and it looks great. Definitely a quality piece of furniture even though it did take awhile to put it together. But it seems sturdy (my TV and DVD player are in the main section) and looks great in my room. After looking at so many other places, I definitely think it is a great piece for the price.
My 13 yr old son and I had a good time putting this together and it looks so nice. It was better than the picture online. We are using it in his room as a tv cabinet and to hold all his game consoles and games. It's a very modern, asian style armoire.
As other reviewers stated, we found it very difficult to assemble and wound up not using the directions. There were a couple scratches on the doors, but a repair pen included covered them pretty well. Once it was together we were very pleased-it looks nice, and not cheap and the hardware is a good quality too. Would definitely recommend as long as you have patience to put it together!
This armoire will suffice for now but I am continuing to look for a piece that is black and similar in size. The piece was difficult to assemble (and we have had a lot of assembling experience) and overall it has a cheap looking appearance. I will however, continue to shop at Overstock.com...I have had great satisfaction with other purchases.
So far it seems to be a good product for the money. The construction is pretty solid (for particle board) and it looks nice. My biggest complaint just has to do with customer service by the manufacturer. They shipped us four left drawer panels instead of 2 left and 2 right. They responded to my first request promptly but sent us the wrong parts again (a week later). So with a second request and another week, we got the right parts. I should also add that it is a big and heavy package, so beware. And my wife wasn't thrilled with the final appearance but we bought some new decorative knobs and that helped a lot.
Basically, I'm a guy with poor manual dextrerity. But i still got it together without much difficulty, and it looks exactly like the picture. The quality of the wood could be better, but overall for teh price i'd say it was a good buy- after all, most of the other pre-assembled armoires (even the lower end stuff) were in the 499-799 price range.
