We have only great things to say about the LaRue Entertainment Console and overstock.com. We love our LaRue Entertainment Console because (1) Color: It's deep chocolate with an evenly painted semi-gloss coating that makes the piece look upscale. (2) Design: It looks so much better than any IKEA design and better in real life than the picture. (3) Price: Unbeatable value -- it's so good, we bought 3. (4) Quality: Very good quality for the price. The console is made with real solid wood on the outside and every piece else that's not visible from the outside is made with particle boards. The rails for the drawers are definitely much better quality than IKEA's quality. (5) Build: My husband has the power tool and it took him 4 hours to build the first. Then having gained the experience, the other two took about 3 hours total. (6) Storage: Lots of storage... a lot more than I imagined by looking at the picture. And we love shopping at overstock.com because it is the best site for good deals. Overstock.com customer service is excellent. One of the sliding doors came cracked and I contacted customer service, a replacement door arrived in 3 days. We were told to email a picture to show the crack... something I would have done too even if they didn't ask. They made the entire process so simple and provided constant reassurance keeping me to be one of their many satisfied customers.
This is a great piece! It looks fantastic! Took my husband 2 hrs to assemble (with power tools & my help). Easy enough to assemble...just takes time.
Sold wood (except back & drawer sides/backs/bottoms), sophisticated and rich color, tons of storage space, the doors slide smoothly in the metal tracks (door bottoms have what look like tiny in-line skate wheels) An almost identical piece (by designer with mitered corners, but no metal tracks) currently sells at a place that rhymes with Broom & Cord for 3-4x what Overstock sells this for!
The only knock I can give it is that it seems more tippy on carpet (I'm guessing due to the style of the base) than it might be if it had a leg at each of the four outside corners). Oh and one of the drawer backs arrived with a 6" side to side crack...a little wood glue and now it's fine. It's not noticable as it's a piece hidden internally and not one of the nice solid wood pieces that someone can see (those arrived perfectly!)
After seeing this in my home, I would definitely puchase it again!
This item is great and I really like it. It could easily be used for a media center with a massive TV. I have another piece of furniture already (I paid 3 times more than this for) for my TV, so I'm using this as a console in my dining room. It works and looks great and could be used for either application. You could put your hardware (stereo, DVD, HD cable box etc.. on the right side (the shelves adjust and there are cut outs so you can run all of your cables out of sight then out the back/bottom - perfect)). I put it together alone fine (i spread it out over 3 days through, it took a while).Now here's the bumps I hit... when it arrived the last piece in the last box that I unpacked had what looked like a scratch on it from top to bottom, it was one of the sides. On further inspection it was a cut right through the entire piece of wood, and with any pressure it would snap in half. Overstock customer support via their online chat option hooked me up. Within a day from reporting this problem they sent me an e-mail with the UPS tracking number for the replacement part that they were shipping me.That is the BEST service I've ever had online!! Now when the part arrived over a week later (due to weekends, holidays etc..) it was boxed up SOOO poorly, it was sticking out of the box and scrapping on the ground!! Luckily the scratches are hidden when I put it together, so bottom line is that I'm very happy with this and would have expected to pay twice as much or more for it it I'd seen it at a high end furniture store.
The La Rue is beautiful on the outside and appears to be sturdy, but I agree with the other poster that the interior sections are made of less-solid materials. Our console arrived with several pieces cracked, broken, or gouged, even though the packaging seemed more than sufficient. Overstock has said that they'll be replaced promptly, and judging by past purchases I imagine they will be. The directions were decent (not as bad as the ones with Plateau computer desk, reviewed elsewhere). Putting the La Rue together was time-consuming but not confusing. We've bought several pieces of furniture from Overstock. My spouse has just about had it with the dings and imperfections that occur in the shipping process and hates the DIY part, but if this piece holds together it's still a reasonably good deal because most of the imperfections are in less-exposed places. I find most media consoles ugly, and the only one I really loved, from********** *******, costs nearly 3x what we paid for the La Rue. I might have given it a 4-star review but I'm worried about the durability of the inside. Oh yes, the other reviewers are correct. The drawers are deep but aren't as useful as they might be.
This entertainment for was just what we were looking for, and overall, we couldn't be happier. Other units we considered were: 1) A lot lower to the ground,which would have meant going through the hassle of wall mounting the TV, but with this unit our 42" LCD is at the perfect height for viewing 2) Were the right price, but did not have this contemporary look/were made of cheap material-- this has the look and is a heavy, solid piece of real wood furniture and/or 3) Had a similar look to this unit/style but with a MUCH higher price tag. Also note that on the shelf side, the back of the shelves and the unit have a space to drop all the wires down to keep things organized and clean looking. And the drawers are HUGE-- just one held all the DVDs from our old DVD tower! We put ours in a nook, so the back of the unit is not exposed-- but be aware that the back is seriously a large piece of particle board (or really thin, flimsy wood) with a giant piece of packing tape across. Three of the pieces came with cracks in them-- not sure if this was a workmanship issue or a shipping issue (the boxes were really beat up when they arrived). One was only slightly cracked (still noticeable though)-- but it was the side piece and you can't see it when it's put together. The other 2 were of more concern, since they were part of the drawers-- didn't feel like shipping back so just used some gorilla glue on them & worked fine & can't see them. Lastly, assembly takes a LONG time. There were two of us & it took over 4 hours!!! These are minor issues, though, and wouldn't prevent me from ordering again or recommending this unit to others-- it really is a stunning & practical piece!
This is a very nice media console, and excellent value. I read the reviews about the time-consuming and involved assembly, so I was prepared for it, and pleasantly surprised at how well it went. I put it together myself, and I'm a 60-year old, 5'4" petit woman...an electric screwdriver was essential, but otherwise, no problem with assembly, totaling maybe 5 hours over 2 days - and you do need a roomy area to work in. All the pieces arrived in good condition, and they err on the side of including extra screws and hardware, so no missing bits. in fact, I may get another to use as a sideboard in the dining room; the drawers are perfect for linens and silver, and one needn't use all the shelves if you want to store ice buckets and punch bowls. It's a keeper!
Although the unit is nice looking the top drawer of the unit is not easy to open. It appears to be a design issue and am surprised no one else has mentioned this. I went over and over the directions to make certain we did not deviate in any way that would cause this to issue but that does not appear to be the case. The top drawer is so close to the top the unit it is difficult to get it open. If the drawers had a divet at the bottom of the drawer to hold on to it would have made more sense. Maybe I am a little OCD, but the sliding doors although they glide very easily, are very noisey when sliding across the rail. The unit is very easy to assemble but even so takes a great deal of time. I would have given this a 4 star rating but the top drawer is very disappointing.

I love the look of this piece. The color is beautiful and the wood is very heavy and sturdy. I would give this piece a 5 star rating if it wasn't for the drawers. They look good once you get them on their tracks correctly, which can be tricky and took me several attempts, arranging and rearranging them to get them to fit right. Once that was done they opened and close very smoothly until I started putting items into them. I put DVD's in the bottom drawer but then had to rethink that because once the bottom drawer had about 30 DVD's it weighed the drawer down so much that I could not open the drawer because the front of the drawer would get stuck behind the tracking of the front sliding doors. I almost couldn't get my DVD's out to move them because the drawer was now stuck shut. With some serious struggle I finally got the drawer open and moved the DVD's to the top and Middle drawer. (when the top drawer contained the collection of DVD's it dragged on top of the second drawer. I am not sure at this point what I can really put in those drawers because nothing is really much lighter than DVD's! I had wanted to originally put some scrap booking supplies in one of the drawers but that clearly won't work. This is my only, but considerable frustration with this piece. I love everything else about it.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Same color
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very sturdy, heavy wood but the drawers are not very functional.

I love this piece! It has polished and modernized the look of our family room, and it's keeping buttons and remotes out of our curious toddler's reach (for now). I'm hoping it will also help keep our desert dust out of our AV components over time. As other reviewers noted, it did take some time to assemble (the better part of a day for me, but I had dogs and children climbing over me for much of it). Some assembly instructions were not the most clear, but it wasn't too hard to figure out. However, if you are not skilled at furniture assembly, this could be a very daunting undertaking. I did have one piece of one drawer arrive broken, but Overstock worked with the supplier to get me a replacement piece within a couple of days. The tracks for the drawers also took a bit of post-assembly adjustment, but I have them working pretty well now. I also added a hole in the backing (which is thin fiberboard -- you can cut through it with a sharp utility knife) to make it easier to run our web of wires to our AV components. There are cutouts for wiring in each shelf that lead to the bottom of the unit, but I really needed another access point higher up. The drawers and shelves are roomy, and the overall look is very, very nice. The finished cabinet looks like a quality piece of furniture.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It is very close -- dark, dark brown, almost black.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The wood on this is really solid. You would never know I assembled this myself!
How accurate was the on site description of the product? very good

Hello gshirk, Yes it is perfect for those who want to keep their media collection behind closed doors. The remote should work behind closed doors. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions. Thank you for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 8, 2013
Are the drawers removable? We know the shelves can be removed, but we are hoping to put a large receiver on the left side if the drawers can be taken out. Thanks.restonfamily on Mar 6, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your interest. You may leave out a drawer if you wish since you will be assembling the unit. However, the interior of the drawer area may or may not be finished like the outer portion and most likely will have only slats with a center or side metal glider for the drawers to rest on. It will not be finished flat inside and again, may not have a flat surface at all to house another component. If you are crafty, you may be able to rig up a flat shelf inside the drawer area, but it is not recommended that you purchase this unit on the assumption that you can alter it. Be advised that we would not be able to take back the unit once assembled and it did not work out. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.
