Was looking for something just like this, to go in the guest bedroom. I have put baskets underneath and all the TV stuff in the center shelf and drawers. Easy to read instructions with legible images (a rarity!) and even easier to put it together (everything included) took maybe 15min tops. Honestly, it took more time to get it all out of the box than it did putting all four pieces together. Came very well packaged too - no issues with dinged corners or scratches. The wood is a nice color, and it's a nice finish... not shiny, nor cheap looking. Metal legs are sturdy, the drawers are already put together and in the top section right out of the box. It doesn't get much easier than this for a DIY item. Overall, well worth the price paid, the minimal effort to assemble and quality of the finished product.
There were a few minor dings on corners but overall a nice addition to our space. Only negative is that the cubby-hole is only 6" tall. Our receiver won't fit. It will need to sit on top since we've planned baskets for the lower shelf.
I purchased this product to hold my 42" LED TV. It is a perfect size for it, though at 48" you are not able to put anything but the TV on top of the stand without it getting in the way of the picture. The top section comes fully assembled, so the only parts to attached are the side iron legs and the bottom board (total of 4 pcs minus the 2 drawers). I fit both my DVR/cable receive and a blue ray player into the components slot and there is plenty of room for additional electronics below. I chose this product because I liked the open frame look of it for my living room. I didn't want it to swallow the whole room.

It's not a bad piece, however the coloring/paint is cracked on the stress points of piece, this makes it look "cheap" the main componets loot good though. It's a decent piece not out of line for the price asked.

Purchase this console to hold a smaller 38" flat screen TV. It's been a couple years now and it is still holding up to everyday use. I like that it has some drawers to hold remote, etc. Only noticeable downside is that the top is beginning to warp from the weight of the TV. I don't know if anyone else can notice it - but I can and I am disappointed.
We put this piece in our basement, and it is perfect for the space. It doesn't look or feel cheap. I like the bottom shelf, as I could add some cute decorative accents there (bowl of nautical knots, a plant, and vase). Looks adorable. And it was SOOO easy to put together.
