I purchased this piece as a modernizing match to the Alfonse Tufted Sofa (also purchased on Overstock). The console came in one large box and took four hours to set up--three for assembly, and one to vacuum up the loose bits of Styrofoam and package up the extra pieces. (I opted not to anchor the console to my apartment wall. With a twenty-inch flatscreen on top, it didn't really seem necessary.) The console provides ample storage space. I've managed to fit all of my DVDs and Wii games, three board games, a pair of ice skates, knitting supplies and two photo albums inside, and there's still plenty of open space within the side cabinets to make it look neat and uncluttered. I actually use the "drawer" on the bottom to store my DVD player and Wii controllers. Note that the middle drawer doesn't come on the gliding runners that the bottom one does, so movement is sort of clumsy. I use it for user manuals and the like. Overall, this is a very good media console for the price. It's attractive, and the lines are even, which is often difficult to find without spending another half a grand. I would have preferred more wood over MDF, but then, you get what you pay for. I will mention that there was some damage to one of the sides of the middle drawer, but as it's not readily visible and doesn't impair function, I didn't bother hounding Overstock for a replacement.

After receiving product, yes many pieces 😱 I hope you can follow directions😊but after assembly ah! Impressed😊very sturdy solid and lots of storage space. The picture doesn't make the storage appear really roomy, but it is. Now it's low to the ground about 2.5 height maybe little over 5ft long more so for an apparent not house. I would recommend this if you want tasteful simple stylish and quality this is it😊
I was nervous about ordering something with glass doors that needs to be shipped, especially during the holidays. We received the item and it took my husband a few hours to assemble. It fits perfectly under the new wall mounted TV and is sturdy and sharp looking. I am pleased that it doesn't look flimsy like most items you have to assemble yourself.
This was a great buy for the money! It has to be assembled, but isn't too difficult to do. I was missing a few screws and one of the shelves was damaged, but I called and received replacement parts within a few days. Very satisfied with the product!
I am really happy with this product for the price. It's a lot more solid than what you get from the *****big box furniture store. The groove line on the drawers is a bit cheap looking and would have been nice plain.

The package arrrived in a semi-damaged looking box but all the contents inside were without defect. All the pieces and hardware were labelled and the diagram/written directions made this easy to assemble. It took 2 of us under an hour to setup then another 10 minutes to clean-up all the styrofoam balls covering our walls, floor and the console itself. The drawers and doors seem strong and the quality of the wood is good. We plan to drill small holes in the backing on the two side shelves since we have more systems than shelves, which is one reason we were disappointed the side shelves only have a 15 lb weight capacity. Overall, we are satisfied with this console - the ease of assembly, quality and visual appeal made this a great buy for the price.
