Looking for a clean, industrial vibe and was pleased to find this media table. It does have an RH look without the high price. It was not hard to put together and arrived in good shape. This is my first purchase through Overstock and it won't be the last.

I was looking for a good, solid stand to hold a 58" plasma TV (100 lbs) that had lots of open ventilation for the receiver and Xbox. I'm happy to report that this product is exactly what I was looking for! This was my first time purchasing from Overstock, but the package arrived quickly, with no damage, and the product is great. The color is almost exact from the picture, mine may be a tad lighter grey but it looks great. The shelves are made out of solid wood, not MDF and not particleboard, and have metal support rails around the edges. The back metal piece that looks like it's for cable management is also a vertical support beam, adding to the strength of the top shelf. Each shelf bolts in to the side frames, and then a series of wood screws holds them all in place. This thing is built like a tank -- I'm very confident putting my TV on the top shelf (that was my biggest worry). I'm completely happy with this purchase and will be looking for the matching desk to complement it! Thanks, Overstock!

This media console is a great addition to my modern decor; however, I could see this complimenting other styles as well. It arrived in one box and was relatively easy to put together. I would recommend having two people assemble, and follow the directions. When it says don't tighten the screws all the way, they mean it. Otherwise it's hard to line up the shelving. Once assembled, this is a fairly big piece. You can fit your TV on top, and have room for all sorts of other goodies on the shelves... cable box, DVD player, books, plants, etc. One note is that the back is open, so your wires and cables can be seen. But I find that with the size of the shelves, you can't really see the wires unless you bend down. All in all, very sleek and well-made piece; and a great buy for the price!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was accurate and just what I was looking for with lots of grey tones.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. This is a very sturdy and well-made media console.

Not quite as easy to assemble as some have said....but then I'm a 67 year old woman! But I'm pretty handy. I found a couple of the wood screws impossible to screw in because I couldn't get a screwdriver into the space. Guess there's some tool I needed. But it works Ok without those screws. And it was a bit heavy when it was completed. But in the end I managed. It did not take me an hour. Probably closer to 2 1/2. But I did it alone. I think it looks good. For me it is the exact right size. The TV looks nice as well as the "tchotchkes" I added for décor and to hide all the wires. If you're not careful, it's easy to chip some of the wood.
Solid piece of furniture. Looks nice with a couple of exceptions. First, the bottom shelf has an obvious spray pattern look, almost as if it was unfinished. The other two shelves look much better with no obviuos pattern. I will deal with it and once I place items on the bottom shelf, it will be less noticeable. I also had to drill a hole in the metal frame. There should have been a hole that went straight through but wasn't completely drilled through at the manufacturer. It is almost like the bottom shelf didn't go through the proper quality check but hey, made in China. It would have been nice if there where more cable management options with this console as it is a very open design. You cannot stuff cables underneath, it sits flat on the floor around all sides. There are small plastic feet but they do not raise it high enough. I will figure out something. Although there were some QC issues with the bottom shelf, I am happy with the purchase. $*** seems like a more reasonable price range for this piece. If you really like the look, then I say go for it. If you are unsure or second guessing, keep looking. Good luck.
As soon as I opened the box I could see the smashed corner on what turned out to be the top shelf. I immediately called customer service and reported this. Customer service was wonderful and I did receive a new top shelf in a timely manner.
Putting this media console together should have been easy because it was just 3 shelves and a metal frame but it was not easy. As I was putting it together I noticed I was shorted a couple screws a lock washer. Because of the first issue this became an annoyance. More annoying, the bottom section of the metal back middle bar snapped off like it was a piece of plastic. I glued it praying it was stay, so far so good. Then I noticed the bottom shelf has a dented outside edge it the wood. This is not as noticable as the first top shelf defect but still a disappointment!
I do not think this item is worth the money I paid for it, even at the sale price! It is the first time I have ever received an item for Overstock that I have NOT been overjoyed with!!

The dimesions say 18 inches wide and 52 inches depth. Is this correct? By the looks of the console, it looks like it would be 52 inches in length by 18 inches in width and 26 inches in height. Please clarify.parikh4 on May 28, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Is this price (404.99) for the media console with side bookcases, or just the middle tv stand piece?susiecu on Mar 23, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us, this is just for the media console. The side towers are under item # 13506141. Please let us know if you have any further question.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 27, 2013
This question was already asked but I would like a clarification.
"I notice the bookcases that go with this console have casters. Can casters be added to the console?"
You answered that it did not come with casters. The question was IF THEY COULD BE ADDED. I.E. if the bottom of the console is made in such a way as to allow casters to be added. Thank you,jellyfish2013 on Jan 29, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Yes you can add casters at the base making this media console mobile too.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 31, 2013
What is the max weight capacity of each shelf, and total for the unit. I wish to place very heavy audio equipment (one unit 85 lb, two more at 35-40 lbs each, and 2 other at about 10lbs) I can store the heaviest unit on the bottom rack if required.
Thanks.wr00010 on Nov 22, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Im sorry this will not hold that much weight. This is not weight tested but I would not recommend putting over 50 pounds on each shelf.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 28, 2012
