Here is my story. I live in NYC and searched extensively for an entertainment center with this style. Everything I found was double or triple the cost of this entertainment center and I searched long and hard by walking into some of the nicest SoHo furniture stores. Anyway, I saw this on overstock and took the risk of purchasing without seeing it in person. The risk was worth it. I received the entertainment center on time. This entertainment center comes in two boxes which are both extremely heavy. I had to have my doorman call the Super to bring up my packages. I opened the packages and everything was neatly packed and nothing was damaged. All pieces are marked with numbers including the screws. I immediately went to Home Depot to purchase an electric drill. I highly recommend using an electric drill for assembly. You should also have a hammer and a 4mm Hex Wrench (although I used a kitchen knife because I did not realize this prior to the Home Deport trip). I am a 36 year old, petite, professional female and I assembled it on my own. You really need to take your time while reading the instructions which are very well labeled. Just think about what your about to do before doing it. The instructions are clearly mark with what way the pieces should be pulled together, so just look at the pictures and think about the diagram before moving along. There is no reason to make an error, the instructions are well pulled together. The only thing is that I highly recommend putting a comforter or blanket down if you have a wood floor. The unit is pulled together upside down so you don't want to scratch the top. Overall, it's a great looking piece of furniture that looks even better with my 50 inch TV. I do agree with another reviewer that you should have a fairly big TV for this unit. I don't think it would look as good with a smaller TV.

I love this entertainment center. Kind of reminds me of the 50's, but in a good way. It took about 3 hours for my husband to put together, and it looks great. Very solid, and I love the darker color wood; without being black. We've received several compliments, and it's the 1st thing company notices when they walk into the room. Guess our old kitchen table really stood out as not being appropriate for what we were using it. bk

It took a friend a little over two hours to build, but he was also multi tasking, so that may not be too accurate. I have a cut wall shared by the kitchen, so i needed an entertainment center somewhat wide, but I didnt want to pay over 300, which was the going rate. The two drawers are deep enough, and my 46' TV sits well with sufficient space surrounding to move the screen as necessary. For the price and quality, I am very happy with my purchase.

It was a little difficult to put together- lots of pieces. Be careful of the door magnets- we put them on backwards. I would do it at the very end. We love this- we use it as a kitchen buffet and it's perfect

Purchased this to use in a small space in our kitchen for canned goods and small packaged foods. I used a frost covering in the glass panes and painted the cabinet to match our kitchen cupboards. It is a great little addition, but if I had it to do over again, I probably would have gone a little larger for the price.

The center vent hole has been repositioned and is now exactly where it should be. (Photo is not up-to-date.) Product was packaged well with easy-to-use instructions. This piece went together better than any pre-fab piece we have ever seen. It is solid and beautiful, well worth the money. The color is best described as a darker shade of almond--exactly like the antique white kitchen cabinets in your local showroom. The only drawback has been the SMELL. It gave off a very strong vinyl-type odor even before we opened the box! It has taken a full week to dissipate. It is a beautiful piece and we are very pleased with our purchase!

We were having trouble finding a tv stand for our 60" tv. This tv stand is perfect! It is a large piece (for a tv stand) and has a grand look. I completely changes the look of our room. It matches our Cosmopolitan Dark Brown Leather Counter Stools (Set of 2) that are in our kitchen. We were nervous about ordering it online. I am so glad that we took a chance.

My wife is a cake decorator and so we were looking for a furniture item to store all her stuff. We came across this credenza and our problems were solved. The storage space is more than enough than what we needed, so we can use the extra room for other basic kitchen items. We placed this in our entry way and it is very eye pleasing. Overall, we are very happy with this item and would highly recommend to others.

purchased this tv stand for my 32 inch flat screen for in my new condo which has an open living room/kitchen floor plan. i was looking for something black because my kitchen has a black theme and i wanted to keep the rooms flowing. great price, simple looking, lots of instructions but fits together very nicely and is sturdy. i like the small area of open space for our cable box and xbox but i also like the storage area at the bottom to keep dvds and controllers to make things more organized. i thought it would have been a little longer but i just ordered and didnt measure, so thats my own fault. it actually ended up working out perfectly with the size of our tv and components. its a good starter stand that will eventually end up in another room once we have a bigger living area but for now, its perfect!

First off I order a good amount of stuff offline and from Overstock. I am generally very impressed. I order a kitchen table, a couch, and a chair and this unit in the last month. I am also rather handy. Overall the unit is fine ONCE put together. Not sure if I received the dud or what. None of the pre drilled holes were straight and the side pieces took a lot of effort to get into place. Not to mention that the bottom piece did not line up properly with the holes in it either. Took a lot of elbow grease and an electric drill. I'm over 6 foot and about 250lbs and I broke sweat muscling it together. Once together it's fine.

I placed this piece in front of a half wall between the living room and kitchen in my condo. It fits perfectly. On top I have a 47" TV with a Kilpsch SB1 Soundbar. I placed the cable components in the open space provided for equipment. The "cigar" stain is very cigarish, but it works with the other wood furniture I have in the house. It smokes! Friends who have seen the piece are amazed at how good it looks for the money I paid through Overstock.com. So am I. The only drawback to the piece is that there is no cover for the back of the open equipment space. My brother is cutting a piece for me with a hole for cables. I plan to tack it on later. The problem is that unless you wall is black, you will see the cables, surge protectors and other equipment connectors. This ruins the overall look. Also, it is best to have two people to assemble. Otherwise, one of the best online purchases I have made.

We found out that we couldn't hang our TV on the wall with an extension arm due to metal slats which would not hold the weight. After searching the web for a tower/stand which would look OK sitting on an oriental rug, I chose this swivel model. It not only fits into traditional decor, but we can turn it to view from the kitchen and the dining area. I was worried that the TV cords would lie on the floor. I chatted on line with Overstock to find out if the cords could be stored in the tube. The person helping me couldn't say, but assured me that if it didn't work out, I would not have to pay the enormous return shipping. When it arrived, I saw that the cords could not be stored in the tube. However, they wrap nicely around the back frame so they aren't seen. It has been quite a success with our guests.

The package this stand came in was extremely heavy like maybe 100 lbs or more!! It took a reasonable amount of time to put together once I got all of the pieces sorted which was a little difficult since I live in a somewhat small apartment. All of the pieces were included except the holes of one of the drawers were not drilled. It was very easy for me to make my own. The drawers I am talking about are on the bottom. They are made of velvet and are very sturdy for what they are. They are covered with the small pieces of wood in front. Overall, this is a very good buy. I only needed a screwdriver to assemble it and a kitchen knife and screwdriver to make the missing holes. It looks very nice with my 30" flat screen. I bought a stand so large because I plan on getting a bigger TV soon but it still looks nice with my current size.

The only thing I did not like about the product was the things that were not screws to hold together the base. I have never put anything together with these things, cant recall what they called them..."something" locks. Two of them broke so I had to figure out another way to secure those two places. I wish, there were extra screws and such included just in case you strip one or like what happened to me with the lock things. Otherwise, love it. It was exactly what I wanted. Sometimes I get scared ordering off the internet that I'm going to get a heavy piece of furniture and it wont be right and I'll have to send it back, but both pieces I have ordered from Overstock, this and a kitchen island, were both perfect. I now have a bed coming so we will see how my 3rd investment in Overstock goes. So far so good.

This item took a while to ship as it came from the other side of the country, but when it arrived late (8pm) on the delivery date, I was very pleased with how well it was packaged. It was completely covered in bubble wrap on the outside. When I opened it up and inspected the parts, only one part looked a little damaged, but luckily it was about the size of a penny and it was on the back corner of the product-- the same corner I had up against my couch. So this damaged part didn't bother me at all. The instructions were somewhat clear, and my husband only made a couple minor mistakes at the beginning, but we figured it out together. The door seemed to scrape when it closed, but after adjusting the hinges, it was perfect. While putting it together he commented about how he was impressed by the construction of the unit considering we only paid $** for the unit. That's an important thing to mention too, that I talked to an overstock chatter, and asked for a price match with Meijer. Though meijer's price went up and as of today that price hike qualifies the product for free shipping, so it doesn't qualify for price match due to a free shipping loophole in Overstock's policy. I encourage anyone to ask for their policy from a customer care rep, and work to pay the lower price, because I saved over $** doing this. It was a hassle to deal with one customer care rep though, but I found a second one who understood their policy better and was apologetic about the frustration I went through to get my $** store credit. In the end I am pleased. If it was $***, it may be worth it, but definitely not with that damage on the bottom. Maybe a little more bubble wrap and foam packaging would prevent this. Keep in mind also that the top 2 shelves are pretty stable, but they're not meant to hold heavy things. This isn't really an "audio" tower as much as a display unit. I'm sure not going to check the weight capacity myself and risk breaking it. And I hope my cat doesn't jump on it and break it either. The unit looks great next nearby to my dark cherry kitchen, while the unit is less red than my kitchen and also a little darker, it still looks great. It looks very modern. Height of interior cabinet is 15-3/4". The two shelves that have shelves above them are 18-1/4" high, so they can fit an average size table accent lamp or medium tall vase. I put a 6 bottle wine rack on the lowest display shelf (the one supported by the cabinet), which was also a dark wood color and they look good together.

There are 4 doors with two hinges each. These are the kind of hinges that you have to adjust to get the door set in evenly on all sides. The instructions said no power tools. There are a total of 48 screws to insert and adjust for the vertical and horizontal height and then a couple more per hinge (8 hinges) that you need to loosen and adjust so that the door lines up to the front of the furniture. It took me two hours to adjust 4 doors (I'm not talking about the rest of the assembly, only the doors) and after I finished and moved the TV stand into position, the doors had fallen out of alignment. Blisters on both hands by then, had to give up. I had already assembled and reassembled the piece several times before even starting the doors because it's not obvious how to line things up from the instructions until you see the piece begin to take shape. The back of mine arrived damaged. It's a flimsy two piece taped together with white tape, which fell off when I took it out of the box. If the instructions had been better I might have been able to line it up where it was supposed to go but ended up with screw holes that had nothing behind to screw into and got out my hammer and some nails instead to finish this off. AFTER I saw the finished product it was obvious how I should have lined the back up but the instructions weren't helpful. The top also has some scratches on it. You can't send these things back, you just have to swallow hard and make the best of it. To be fair, I didn't try to contact anyone for replacement parts because I was in a hurry to have the TV up on the stand. The look of the finished product for the price (if you can bear with the assembly problems) is very nice and I like it a lot but I did not buy the sister products as intentionally planned because I couldn't face the assembly. I am experienced at furniture assembly of this type by the way - I've built lots of desks, carts, storage drawers etc. For the most part I don't find it hard, but this one was tedious. I bought a kitchen cart at overstock which by contrast was very easy to assemble. The doors just popped right in on spring hinges with no adjustments necessary.
