You assume from the photo, though its unclear, that the outside border area "floats" and does not have a solid backing behind it. This is the case. Here's where the problem come in. Because of this design, you cannot hang this like a conventional wall mirror. If you use picture hanging wire, it will show through the "cut out" area. You have to drill two seperate screws into the wall. And getting these to line up so that the mirror hangs perfectly level is a real challenge. It took me nearly two hours to mount the mirror properly on the wall. What's worse, the hanging hooks on the mirror I received were screwed into the mirror on the back and off by neary 3/4" from one another. Sloppy workmanship. I had the option of either re-mounting the hanging hooks so they lined up evenly or compensating by where I put the screws into the wall. Just an additional hassle. The actual plate glass mirror itself is not all that large and I'm not certain the overall quality justifies the price paid. I'll have to give it some points for uniqueness, however.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Good
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Fair
The mirror is an interesting shape and of good quality. It looks nice on my fireplace. The only knock against it is that the hangers on the back were not properly aligned, so I had to remove and reattach one of them so it would hang level.
I found these mirrors at a local lighting/decor store but were not in stock. I ordered them from Overstock.com on a Saturday and received them on the following Wednesday. mirrors came in perfect condition and I couldn't be more pleased with them. I was looking for something with an asian feel and this works great or in my opinion would be good for any theme. to top it all off I saved about $60.00 per mirror. I'm a happy camper.

The mirror arrived five hours ago and was superbly packaged. During the time between ordering and arriving, I had forgotten that I had ordered a GLOSSY Black Beveled Mirror, as was clearly noted in the product description It certainly has a high-gloss finish (but will work well in my foyer.) It was weighty so I referred back to the product description. The weight wasn't noted on the main page but found it in the download exhibit under "Click here" for additional product details where it was described at the bottom of the schematic as 51.5 pounds (net). That felt too high to me so perhaps another buyer can write in with the actual weight or a prospective buyer could pose the question directly to Overstock. Nonetheless, I'd suggest erring on the side of caution when selecting mounting hardware -- I'm not sure if nails in drywall would be the correct long-term solution as mentioned by one reviewer. A wire wouldn't be the best way to hang this mirror (as suggested by another reviewer) both from appearance and weight distribution standpoints. Re-reading the reviews, I see that there have been issues with the levelness of the mounting brackets on the back of the mirror. I haven't checked mine, but am now reminded to do so before drilling holes in my lath & plaster. Finally, and not related to the actual product, I was having a glitch in getting a discount code reflected on the price in my Cart. The Overstock Customer Service person advised me to go ahead and place the order and he would apply the discount after the fact. While I was somewhat dubious, everything worked out as promised. Fine service! Attractive mirror! Good price! Happy camper!
I was very impressed by the way this mirror was packed to ship. It was surrounded by a lot of foam and then it was screwed to pieces of plywood so it wouldn't get damaged in transit. It looks perfect in the bathroom where were mounted it.
This mirror is modern and better than expected quality. However, I agree with other reviewers that the hooks are not even--it took a couple nail holes to get it to hang evenly. A minor hassle and worth it, since the mirror looks great. Can be hung horizontally or vertically. This was significantly less expensive than similar mirrors, so we are happy with it.
I was very excited to receive this mirror. The best part is that I know this design is very unique, so it's not just sitting on the shelf at your nearest big-box store. It's modern, unique, and well-made.
