My first shipment was "discarded" by UPS for damage. Overstock shipped a 2nd one. At first glance it seemed ok despite damage to the box. However, when I got to the top slab, which is packed on the bottom, it has giant cracks running the length of it. Overstock told UPS it was damaged again so now UPS has 10 days to inspect it or pick it up. The piece itself is made of particle board but not the smooth MDF type more like rough plywood that's an inch plus thick. I can imagine it swells over time in humid climates as another reviewer stated. The real issue is the packing and shipping damage. Cheap furniture like this can't be moved much as it is so when it comes rode hard and put away wet it's almost like pre-used and will be more fragile sooner. I don't know. A bargain piece of furniture shouldn't take 3-4 weeks of waiting. If you need something soon, this is maybe not the right pick.
I love our TV stand. It's a great alternative to mounting a really large TV. The sliding glass doors are awesome because it give easy access to all of the misc components that you normally house with the TV. The glass panels makes for easy reception by the remotes and you can hide all of the wiring inside. The color is perfect for our modern family room and the product itself is great quality. The box is really heavy but the unit is very well protected during shipping.

I am very pleased with this product. The description and pictures are very accurate. We had to replace our previous TV stand because the glass on it shattered out of the blue. I purchase from Overstock pretty frequently and decided to check out their selection. Not only did they have a larger selection than any furniture store in our area, but their prices were very reasonable. We received it very quickly and everything was intact. The box was not damaged and it was packaged well in my opinion. All the parts were present. The directions weren't the best, but my husband put it together in about an hour. We've had it now for almost a month and it is very sturdy and I loved the color and style. It was just what I was looking for. I love Overstock!

This unit looks great. I read reviews prior to purchase that said it was hard to put together but I disagree. For the price, the assembly was fine and wasn't complicated for two of us to put together. It's very sturdy and looks pretty. 60" TV look great and it can probably fit a 70".
On sale plus free Shipping certainly helps. Great for a man cave, 60" t.v. since its so wide. Installation was simple, just be careful that the wood is a composite, and I pushed a little too hard on a seal and cracked it a tiny bit. The slider glass doors don't slide the smoothest but not a big deal unless you open/shut them a ton.
"True, it is composite and veneer. But this piece, once assembled, is incredibly handsome and extremely affordable. It accommodates our 65"" flatscreen beautifully. Yes, the box it arrives in is ridiculously heavy. The instructions are illustrated as opposed to written which was fine except for drawer assembly. I would recommend setting the drawer brackets aside (taped together in pairs, as they arrived) until you reach that step. I made the mistake of separating them and putting them in a pile and it cost me an hour in the assembly process. One man, no power tools; assembly took about 3 hours. A team of two with power tools could probably cut that in half. I am extremely pleased with the end result and receive compliments on the piece's look and disbelief on the piece's price."
