I wanted a console that didn't compete with other furniture...more like an extension of the television. This product is perfect in that regard. It has a sleek style and is very sturdy. The reason I didn't rate it excellent was because one of the parts was broken. I noticed similar comments from other raters, so the packaging must not be adequate. But luckily my boyfriend is handy and has able to fix the part with glue and screws since it isn't a visible piece. Once put together I love it.
After reading all the other reviews, I thought for the price, it was worth the chance. Delivery was very quick (5 days as promised) and it took my son less than an hour to put together. There was a 'ding' on the edge of the top panel which I think happened through shipping...easily hidden with the marker that was included. Fits the 46" flat screen perfectly with plenty of room for the surround sound speakers, cable box and DVD player. So pleased with the appearance that I purchased the 'corner' piece which will allow me to get rid of the existing unit holding the receiver and cd player. Should look great once they're put side to side
Mostly I am very happy with this TV stand. The reviews about the packing were correct. Basically they just throw the wood slats in a box and ship it. There was no padding and no protection. I had a big gash on the top of the TV stand. It sucked it had to be on the top, but luckily it was in the back. With the touch up marker and my TV you cannot see that anything happened to it. The TV stand is very heavy and good quality and it gives my room a very nice look. I have a 47" flat screen and it fit perfectly on this stand. The one thing I am disappointed in is the depth of the shelves. My DVR cable box does not fit and has to hang over the edge a little bit and it bugs. Overall you get what you pay for. For the price of this you get more than your monies worth as it is a lot nicer stand than I have seen for ***. I wanted to spend as little as possible. and for this price the TV stand does a great job for what it costs, it's a quality product and does not look cheap. It could be bigger and they could protect it when shipping.

I have been long looking for an entertainment center that was basic, well-priced and would fit well in my living room. This console is wonderful. It arrived in perfect condition and the color and style are represented well on the website. Putting this together was not that hard at all, it took me a little over an hour. (and while I have put basic furniture together before I am FAR from handy). The back part of the console is the only piece that is somewhat flimsy but this is an unbelievable value. I have not seen (and I shop a lot - in stores and online) a better piece for this price. I had some doubts it would arrive broken but I went ahead and ordered anyway because it was a perfect size for my living room. I am so glad I did.
Unfortunately the product came broken ( which is the first time this has ever happened with Overstock) BUT customer service at Overstock was EXCELLENT. They made it very simple to return and my acct was credited immediately. I understand things like this happen and will in no way keep me from shopping on Overstock!!!!
If you buy this product, you won't be sorry. It was simple to put together. I did it alone in about an hour. And the results...a nice piece of furniture. I would definitely recommend this console!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. For the price...great quality!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate - The console looks as good in my TV room as it does in the picture.
I did not know exactly what to expect when ordering this unit due to the low price. But the reviews were good, so I went for it. I'm so glad that I did. It arrived very timely and packaged very well. The directions are clear and SO easy I was able to do it myself in less than an hour. The result is awesome. It is so pretty you would never know it was this inexpensive, or that I put it together myself! I highly recommend this if you want a great looking stand and you are on a budget (or NOT). It's beautiful, and I am very pleased.
Great product. When I opened the box I was overwhelmed at all the pieces. Having done this kind of assembly before, I learned to read the instructions thoroughly a couple of times. I started assembling it and I was done in 45 minutes. It is beautiful, sturdy and strong enought to hold my 40" Plama TV. Than you for providing such a well engineered product.
Product looks good and the price was right. Easy to assemble once I had all parts. Shipping took longer than expected (1 1/2 weeks) and was missing a part when it arrived. The missing part took 15 days to get here. Would not recommend due to shipping problems. I was told this item ships from Canada which delays everything.
