Miracle One: This was left on the front porch in a damaged box. Luckily, the packing materials did their job and nothing was actually marred. Miracle Two: The furniture pieces and hardware were all there. Miracle Three: The instruction booklet was obviously written by someone whose primary language was English and thought out in logical progression. The illustrator was just as good. Miracle Four: The sole tool necessarry to construct this piece is a Phillips head. An electric screwdriver is a big help but all the holes lined up perfectly and even the doors hung true right away. Miracle Five: Working alone, this cabinet was finished in just under an hour even factoring in Monday night football on in the background. This unit is not only handsome but functional. The shelves are adjustable and of an adequate size to be useful. Tip: Install silicone rectangular sliders under the corners for ease in positioning. The cabinet is flush and has no hand-holds except for opening the doors. I waited a long time to choose a flat screen unit that would complement a bedroom space. This one is stellar.
I shopped around for quite a while trying to find the right stand for our new TV - nothing I found was really what I was looking for, until I saw this one! I'm always a little apprehensive buying furniture online, but this is exactly as pictured, and actually I think it looks even better in person. Also, I've put a lot of furniture together, and I figured this would be like all the others - take a while, and still never be just right...I was wrong! This piece went together in a flash, all the holes matched up, the doors hang perfectly, and it looks fantastic. I couldn't be happier! TV stands of this size are expensive, but I feel this piece is worth the money!
We used this cabinet underneath a wall-mounted 50" flat panel TV & it looks great in our family room. It is slightly darker in appearance than the photo which was what we wanted. Love the slight Asian influence in the design, it mixes well with our other furniture. Assembly was no problem. I assembled it alone in about 30-45 minutes. The unit is heavy & sturdy, looks nice & is deep enough to hold all of our components.
Compared to other TV consoles we looked at, this one has turned out to be more than we imagined. Yes, there is "some assembly required" - but my husband and my four-year-old put it together in less than an hour (including the time to take all of the pieces out of the box). The piece itself is wood (the mdf is the backer piece) and it is beautiful. All of the pieces fit together well and nothing was scratched or dented from being shipped. The piece arrived much more quickly than we ever expected (even though we ordered around Christmas, which we certainly expected to slow things down and it didn't!). It is a sturdy piece and the glass doors hide eyesores like video game components well. The shelf heights are adjustable on both the main section and the sections behind the doors, making it fully customizable to your particular components. All in all, this is well worth the money and the small investment of time to put into assembling it.
I was looking at *****, ***** etc. where they had a similar piece for around $400 plus $60 shipping. I decided to take a chance on this one, and I am so glad I did! It took about a week to arrive, and then I paid $50 to have it put together -- I don't trust my skills there -- so total was about $****. It is absolutely gorgeous, even a little nicer than the more expensive options. Net-net, Overstock may not be a bargain basement deal for furniture of this quality, but it offers amazing value. Thanks guys!
This unit was purchased because we wanted something to fit in a 85 yr old craftman bungaloe. which it does. Unit is fairly well built and was extremely easy to put together. My son and I had it out of the box and assembled in a little over an hour.Money well spent.
I received this item last night and had it completely put together (with the help of a 1 year old and a 2 year old) in less than an hour. The directions are very easy to follow, and I do have an electric screw driver. The color is a little bit darker than the picture which is what I was counting on since it was mentioned in other posts. I would say that it is almost a mocha color. This is a fantastic and BEAUTIFUL piece of furniture. It is very solid and high quality. I highly recommend this item.
I purchased this stand to fit in a cutout of a wall in our basement. We had a width of 49.5" and had just purchased a 50" plasma TV. The cabinet worked out perfectly! It is all solid wood, with the exception of the back of the unit. It looks really nice and for the money is much better than anything I saw at several furniture stores. The color is a very dark brown, but that worked out fine for us. I am happy with the quality of workmanship. The doors close nicely on the cabinet.I would definitely recommend this cabinet. It looks more expensive than it cost!
With nearly free shipping this is an especially good value. It is easy to assemble and has a solid appearance. We wanted something that would blend with our existing mission style furnishings. This was as close as we found in the price range. The finish is darker than we would have liked but it was as the photo's depict. It works well with our 46" flat-screen and satellite box.
I bought this years ago and it still looks good! Quality piece. Assembly was easy. Doors hang, open & close as expected. I don't typically review purchased products until I've had an opportunity to 'put it to the test'. It still receives lots of compliments & that question 'where'd you get that...' Thanks O!
Get compliments on this cabinet all the time. The cabinet is very sturdy, the panels behind the wooden gridwork are actual glass, and assembly was not too terrible. We put a wine rack on the bottom shelf and our DVD/blue ray player on the top; it looks great below a wall-mounted TV and was the perfect size for our condo living room.
I am a women in my seventies and assembled it without help. It took me about 2 hours with brief rests.. The worst part was attaching the back piece. I have been looking for a TV stand for several years. This is the perfect height, width and depth for me. Love the style too. It arrived promptly and very well packaged.
