Overall, this is an average piece of furniture. First off let me say that the shipping was awesome as far as time..placed my order on Monday and received on Friday, the week before Christmas. However, I feel that it was not adequately packaged for shipment across country (from Utah to Florida). A couple of the corners had minor dings in them and the bottom shelve had a line in it, like it had been slightly bent but was still intact. The back wall piece has no openings for wires, cords, etc. I won't be using the back wall piece unless I cut it as one of my stereo components sticks about about 2 inches farther than the depth of the cabinet. My bad, as I did not measure it, but had assumed it would fit standard size components. The height of the unit is low, again my bad, so I've placed my tv on top of a black storage box to bring it up to eye level. The smokey glass is nice. There is truth in the saying that sometimes you get what you pay for. If I had seen this product before I purchased, I probably still would have bought it but only after looking around some more. I think for the price it would suit the average consumer.
I actually bought it for $XXX on Amazon when there was a lightning deal. normal discounted price would have been around $200. It is easy to install, beautiful looking. The only downside is it's been a week and we can still sometimes smell the paint from it.
This doesn't boast to be a solid wood piece of furniture- it's exactly as it's described and a great value for what you pay. It is sturdy, easy to put together (my handyman-challenged husband did it alone using the guide included) and looks great. I have it in the basement for a 60" tv. I would recommend this purchase.
