This is a great space saving unit and it looks great. It ws easy to assemble and came as described. I would make it 2 inches deeper if I could but not a downer.

The overall and convenience of this TV wall console is excellent for the price and considering that it it is a strong wood composite. We installed (drilled) the shelf rack first directly to the wall studs. For the two compartment shelf, it took finding three studs that were 16 inches apart like the instructions said. We then installed the assembled shelf unit onto the bracket that was previously drilled to the wall and drilled the wall unit to the wall studs as well. So both the bracket and the shelf unit were drilled to the wall studs separately. In this way, we were able to simply placed our 47-inch TV on top of the shelf without having to install the TV to the wall with a bracket. The TV is therefore sitting on top of the shelf the way it would if were to be put on a floor table and it is very sturdy because the shelf was appropriately secured to the studs. There is therefore no need to install the TV to the wall with a separate bracket. It can sit safely on top of the shelf provided it is properly secured. Hope this review helps anyone wondering if the TV can be placed on top or not like we were. P.S. The instructions are deceiving because it warns that you cannot place a TV on top, but the unit can accommodate a total of 150lbs evenly distributed. I guess the instructions were printed when TVs used to weigh a ton. Now they are lightweight. We called the toll-free number and we were reassured about the installation and safety of placing the TV directly on the shelf as we indicated above.
This is a nice piece of furniture considering the price. Very easy to assemble and very sturdy. Sure it's just laminate board, but for the price and the ease of assembly I'm very happy. As stated in previous comments, there is no hardware included for the actual wall mounting, but I prefer to chose my hardware for this type of procedure anyway. I love it. Highly recommend.

This has been a great addition to my son's room. It was very easy to hang on the wall and doesn't take up any floor space. We've received slot of compliments.

This product looks very good and is for anyone who is looking for that modern look in the living room. It was pretty easy to assemble, with the right tools of course(had to use my own). The only draw backs were, it does not come with screws to drill into the wall plus the wood quality is very cheap and easy to split when inserting screws.

Our first Overstock order. They are now on my 'favorites' list. This entertainment center is even more beautiful on our wall than it is in the photos on Overstock. It took me less than an hour to fully assemble it using a phillips screwdriver, level, stud finder, and, cordless drill for drilling pilot holes for the provided wood screws (for the wall mount). Contrary to what some reviewers have said, the unit comes with ALL hardware, including an intelligently-engineered wall mount. Be sure to get it level and center the mounting screws on the wall studs (wallboard alone will NOT support this kind of weight). In fact, the entire product is intelligently-engineered. A true joy to assemble. Another point worth making is, the included assembly manual is the clearest I have encountered in my 75 years. Each page is devoted to a separate assembly step and the whole job is easy as page one, two, three, .... This thing weights over fifty pounds and was shipped UPS free. What a deal!!!
Easy assembly, looks great on the wall, holds all of my Dvds, movies, books, etc. It seems really sturdy too. I have my 32" Tv sitting on top of the console (I didn't mount it on the wall because it's not a larger tv). It also houses my small stereo and Dvd player. It's perfect for my bedroom.

We wanted our stand to be off the floor, but needed something to house digital box and DVD player. This product is perfect for that ~ even has hidden back 'crawl space' for a power cord! You can see the screws, even though they send a marking pen to color them black, and the only other downside we found was the mounting board that attachs to the wall is somewhat shorter than the shelf that sits on it. (you can see about 1/2 " of your wall through both sides of the back of shelves) Great product for the price!
This was perfect for our master bedroom. Our TV is mounted on the wall but we needed a place for all the components. There weren't too many wall-mounted options out there so when we got this it was a relief. Since I don't have the TV sitting on top, I use it as a bookshelf. It was very easy to assemble and my husband was able to mount it on the wall by himself - no help necessary. Love this item!
I've had this console for over a year now and it's holding up really well. I actually had to move it and remount it twice, and was pleasantly surprised that it didn't fall apart after a few moves. This item is a great space saver since you don't have any legs to get in the way. Since there are no legs you can place it as high or as low as you want, which is an added bonus. It takes a while to put together, but it's totally worth the trouble because it's a solid piece of furniture. It also really does hold a lot of weight. I have it full of DVDs, a TV, an old VCR, and a DVD player, and it's still flush on the wall and doesn't show any sign of being stressed. The only drawback is that it does get dusty really quickly. I feel like I'm cleaning it a lot, but that's not a huge issue for me.
It came in good time and in good condition. The wood is not if the highest quality but we expected that because of the price. A word of caution to the person assembling it. Be careful as you turn the screws not to crack the wood. It is very sturdy once attached to the wall. The TV looks great on it and it has a shelf for keeping remotes . It probably is a two person job to get it hanging properly although my husband hung it with a small amount of help from me . It looks good and is perfect for the small space in our condo. We haven't been disappointed in Overstock.
This shelf arrived in perfect condition. It was well packaged inside and out. The instructions for hanging were clear and concise. If I had one complaint it would be the length of the board that adheres to the wall. Adding another 3" to it would make this floating shelf perfect. It is not quite the same width as the shelf itself.
Be aware this is only painted on one side. Depending where you are hanging this the bare side particle board shows. I would have returned if I could have gotten it back in box. I think it is very cheap of the company to only paint one side considering how much their cheap particle board cost. Yes I knew it was particle board and was ok with that but did not expected to have to paint it myself. For $125.00 they could have uses .50 cents worth of paint.
I found the console to be easy to assemble, although I did need some help mounting it on the wall. Not impressed by the compressed wood but you can't complain too much considering the price. The finish on the panels is nice and arrived with one small blemish that may have happened during shipping. Looks very stylish, saves space compared to my old TV stand, and even makes it easier to maintain the floor in the area. Overall I'm very happy with this purchase and have gotten some compliments about it since it's been installed.
Was easy to put together by myself. Does require assistance to hang. Style is exactly what I wanted and it looks great in my family room. Accommodates surround sound receiver, dvr/cable receiver, blu ray player, and vcr. (Yes, I need to transfer those to dvd!) Displays Christmas decorations at the moment with plenty of room for cds and dvds plus speakers. Since it is mounted to the wall, there is no moving necessary to vacuum under it. The floor beneath it uncluttered and all the wires and cables are nicely hidden on the shelf between it and the wall. Power strip (not supplied) also hidden on this shelf but still easy to access when you need to get to them. I am very happy with this purchase!
