Absolutely love it! Great deep brown, nice and sturdy...Easy assembly.. I utilized every inch of space and all of my dvds fit nicely.. When the door is open, even with it being completely full, it still has great stability.. Over all VERY happy!!
I really like this product as far as the size and storage capacity. My only complaint is the poor workmanship used in building this pedestal. The hinge on the door was not aligned and the screws holding it in were stripped which split the edge of the door. We were able to replace the screws and realign the hinge so now it is sturdy. Otherwise I would have given this a higher rating.
Received this product quickly - 2 days after ordering. It is nice - I actually like that it's a little smaller than one would think... compact but pretty and a good pedestal for a plant or picture frame. Only complaint is the pegs to sit the shelves on were missing, so now I have to wait on those to put it together. Looks like this is an issue because another person on Overstock reported the same problem. I looked through the box thoroughly - they are not there. Would have rated this product a 5 otherwise.
Great OVERSTOCK value and excellent customer service that I've come to expect. Exceeded all expectations save one...my cabinet fully loaded with CD jewel cases causes a sag and the door section does not align precisely with the cabinet frame so there's contact with the pedestal base as it opens and closes. I should add that it is solid when fully loaded and at no time feels unstable. I would recommend to a friend with a caveat.
We have two Pioneer bookshelf speakers and a toddler. Those two things don't mesh well, thanks to our little ones curiosity. We previously had two stands which the speakers stood on, but the stands were a bit flimsy and not very appealing to look at. We wanted to upgrade to something which was tall and sturdy enough to hinder our toddler from getting to the stand. We also wanted something which would match our decor and provide functionality. This serves all of the above. My only complaint is that espresso color is close to a cherry color than a true dark brown espresso. I checked this in various lighting schemes to make sure it wasn't my eyes. That being said, I think the stands look very nice and are well built. Best of all there is little to no assembly! They came packaged well and were extremely easy to set up. Now I just have to figure out how to darken the color to match our decor.
I had to wait for this item to be offered again as I hesitated to order the first time. Glad I purchased it! It is heavy and stable and looks great with our TV console. It looks more like a pedestal and cannot tell its a storage piece. Wish I had room for another one.

I looked for years to find a nice piece of furniture to store nearly 300 CDs. This was the first time I located a good product at a decent price. Would recommend the product to others.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Well
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Better than average quality to date. The door arm sags a little when opening due to the number of CDs on the door.

I received the pedestal promptly after ordering it. The only problem I have noticed is that it arrived without any pegs to set up the shelves. I called the manufacturer and they apologized and quickly shipped out a set of pegs so I could set it up to use for storage. I haven't filled it up with DVDs yet because I am still buying a few other pieces of furniture for the room and I'm pretty sure I'll have to move it around (another reviewer said it is difficult to move it when it is full). The color is nice and matches the rest of my decor in the room. You can't really tell by looking at it that it has a storage function so I am thinking about ordering another one to use outside of the living room.
Beatutiful and and expensive looking. We had a huge entertainment center and replaced it with a flatscreen tv and small stand with two of these on each side. They dont take up much space and really hold a lot of CDs and DVDs. We're really happy with our purchase.
I've actually told clients about this great media cabinet and a couple of purchased. Both seem happy with the recommendation. The only thing I do NOT like about this unit is that it would have been a much better design if the main door would have been made a modular design, meaning instead of opening only from the left to right but a way to switch the door to open from the right to left as I had these on either side of my TV table and had to set one a bit away from the side to open it up. SO that got me a bit miffed but other than that they are great otherwise. Great wood color, I love the dark mahogany finish, it's rich and masculine and the face that the top is stationary makes for a great plant stand or what ever....
This unit is very sleek and nice looking. The color matches the picture - it's dark brown or espresso. It arrived assembled which was a nice surprise. You do have to play around with your DVDs to figure out the most efficient way to fit as many as possible.
Two problems with this unit. First, the final finish does not extend down into the vertical ribs. Instead, there is a crust of lacquer along the length of each rib. Secondly, the top plate is warped, leaving an ugly slanted gap between the top plate and the top of the door. Otherwise, it's an extremely functional media storage unit.
Haven't really had time to use it much so can't comment about how it is in use but I liked it out of the box. Bought it for cds but so far have only stashed a little mail in it to get it out of the way so haven't really used it filled/heavier. I had seen one in someone else's home that was likely higher end since their wood looks richer (more like hand rubbed finish or something and a slightly different color) but this color/stain/paint or whatever on my brown one is attractive enough and if I hadn't seen that one I would likely have rated mine much higher. My 24 year old son even complimented it.
Great addition in our living room we love how much looks and what a great use of space it saves instead of one of those large cabinets.

I WAS VERY PLEASED AT THE PROTECTIVE PACKAGING, NO DAMAGE AND I HAD IT TOGETHER IN NO TIME AT ALL! I'M USING FOR VHS, DVD'S AND CD'S, I DON'T HAVE A HUGE SELECTION BUT NEEDED MORE STORAGE AND WAS LOOKING AT THIS ITEM FOR A LONG TIME...REALLY TOO LONG. I'VE ALWAYS BEEN PLEASED WITH MY PURCHASES FROM OVERSTOCK AND IT'S THE FIRST PLACE I LOOK WHEN I NEED SOMETHING. I PUT A TALL DECORATIVE PIECE ON TOP AND HAVE IN THE CORNER OF MY LIVING ROOM. DON'T HESITATE TO PURCHASE ! THANKS AGAIN OVERSTOCK FOR GREAT MERCHANDISE !

when i opened the package there were deep scratches across the top of the door. The back right corner was broken and underneath the media cabinent was broken.I wasn't too happy. Thank goodness the rtn .wasn"t an issue just an inconvenience. I really wanted the media cabinent ...just didn't want to take the chance on another one. I don't have much luck getting furniture in the mail .Guess I need to quit trying....too much of a hassle. I had to send a much larger media cabinent back before this one...just a different company. to all who order good luck.!
