This buffet does the job and looks like the picture, but the quality is really substandard. I put it together pretty quickly (I mean, at least 1.5hrs...but that's how long these things take) The doors really make it cheap . They are really thin and don't close well. They are also hard to get 100% straight. If you don't touch the buffet, it looks fine, but if you open a door, you know it is cheap. I think *** is a pretty steep price tag for this item, but it does look nice from a few feet away.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. substandard!
How accurate was the on site description of the product? good
It looks OK from a distance but when you touch it (especially the side panels) it's just thin and cheap. Even for the price I think it's not worth it. Not to mention the holes didn't line up and I had to pay someone to put it together and get it right.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is fine
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Cheap cheap cheap
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Says wood, and I guess most of it is, but thin crappy wood
This buffet is the worst I have ever seen. One of the doors has a crack in it, lock nuts cheaply made and had two break and they wouldn't hold the piece together. Other imperfections in the wood had been covered with a black marker or some other substance. I definitely won't buy anything from this manufcturer again and I do not recommend anybody else buy it either. Being on a fixed income this was not worth the price I paid.

This is a great piece for a great price. It looks perect in our dining area and matches our dining set. I did a lot of searching prior to actually buying a buffet and was happy to find this. The ONLY downfall to this buffet is the assembly. My husband (super handy person) took almost 2 hours to put this thing together partly because he kept on having to take the entire thing apart and put it back together again because the directions were so terrible. If you are an individual who has trouble with furniture assembly (myself included) save yourself....don't try to put this thing together. If you're handy and want a great piece of furniture--buy it :)
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It's the same--black stained/painted wood
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It was godo quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? It is accurate
The box was dripping off the product after Hurricane Irene, however and thankfully the wood was not damaged!
The instructions were not good and need to be re-written. I have assembled a multitude of furniture/cabinets/bookshelves, etc. and have never had so many problems. There are pre-drilled holes missing, and the alignment of parts was not accurate. After assembling the unit
I am happy with how it looks, but the instructions, and some elements could have been made easier. Some parts could have arrive already assembled, with less aligning for the customer. It would have made the process easier. Way too many steps and not incredibly clear.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is exactly as pictured
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality of the craftsman ship is poor
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The box was delivered during a hurricane and sat outside for 2 days!!!!!!! either cheers for ***, or are they just insane???
Upon opening the package, we were overwhelmed with the smell, which was like epoxy. In fact, it still smells like that inside the cupboard. Whatever it was, didn't smell healthy, like VOCs. The cupboard was easy to construct, but many of the pieces we received looked like they'd had touch-up paint and some of the pieces weren't painted correctly. Additionally, some of the fasteners didn't "take" because they didn't grip the wood. Because it was a piece bought for our office, we decided to keep it; but if it was for my home, I'd have returned it.
