We love it! Even though it was a bit narrow for some of the media electronics we planned to put inside, we still kept it because we thought it was so beautiful, especially for the price!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It was spot on.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very strrdy, nice quality wood and finish, gorgeous hardware.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good, although we didn't realize there is a divided up the middle of the shelf, so some of our electronics were too wide.
Can not beat the price for the quality of this product. I have purchased other products that come unasembled but this was very time consuming and very difficult to put together. Need more than 1 person to put this product together because of the weight and the lining up of the screws into the predrilled areas. The directions are of poor quality and should be more specific with better diagrams. When I finally got it together (5 hours later) the shelves did not go in properly and I finally noticed the middle panel (description of product does not state there is a middle horizontal support) was reversed. The directions do not show which is the front or back of the middle panel. Now I have to attempt to take the middle panel apart and start over. Also, this is listed as a media cabinet but my cable components do not fit because the three componets I have (cable box, dvd player and dvd burner) are 17" wide. The 4 shelves are only 16 " wide. I can not use this as a media center but will now use this in my office at home to store books. Again, very good quality but difficult to assemble and not wide enough for a media center.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? similiar
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. very good quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? does not state that there are 4 shelves that are 16" wide and are seperated by a middle panel
Nice piece of furniture, we're very happy with it. It arrived in one big box, very carefully packaged. Assembly took a few hours but wasn't too difficult.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was acurate

I assembled the cabinet only to find that as I proceeded to insert the shelves, none of them were in alignment with the push pins for the shelves. how can I use something like this. I ordered it specifically for the shelves and they don't fit. additionally I was sent a wrong door for the right side, words on the glass were upside down- where the magnet was suppose to be positioned was on top of the door instead of the bottom where the other one is. soooo disappointed
I purchased two of these, and had the same issue with assembly for both of them - the doors do not line up. Since it's such a large piece, it's very easy for it to be out-of-square. That would normally be resolved once the back panels are put on, which will keep the frame rigid. After two attempts at squaring the first cabinet, the doors line up almost perfectly. The second cabinet, after several attempts at making it square, the doors still do not quite line up as perfectly as the other cabinet. While it is something I can live with, I'd be a bit happier if it was perfectly square. The cabinet comes with extra hardware which is a good thing, because on both pieces, 2-3 cam locks were broken during the assembly. Overall, it's a beautiful piece of furniture, and I hope it lasts a long time.
The color is richer than the picture shows. Beautiful piece of furniture! Compliments the TV stand wonderfully. I have a very dusty home so I wanted something with doors. I was going to change the handles but after seeing them in person they are perfect.
Like with the other matching pieces, this scratches easily, else I'd give it a 5. However, because it's out of the way, I've been able to keep it in good condition. If you're looking for something that can hold up to a lot of daily use, this is not it- it will scratch.
The quality was fine, although customers rely on accurate and detailed information by "Overstock", as the "middle man" it is their responsibility to inform the customers and guarantee catalog descriptions are accurate! A non-disclosed "center divider" was received. This drastically changes the interior width dimensions, and audio equipment cannot be altered. We need this information to make an educated decision whether or not the product item ordered will be the appropriate specifications for our needs! Obviously, we were not satisfied with the policy of Overstock's resolve. And a "Return", really? The thought of dismantling and attempting to re-package the cabinet in the same box is absurd. We will be hesitant in the future to order any product without Overstock's full disclosure first! Moreover, by not satisfactorily covering "our costs" for a cabinet maker to correct the neccessary alterations for the, "not as advertised" cabinet to be useful. This lack of customer satisfaction will surely result in a negative mark for Overstock policies.
Not a bunch of particle board and sawdust. Went together easy enough but those little tiny screws for the hinges were a pain for big fingers. Otherwise a easy build. 2 scratches in the wood sides. I might have done 1 but the other was there when I opened the box. Fixed with a furniture marker.
Before purchasing this bookcase, I looked at hundreds on a variety of websites. This was purchased for our new condo great room. We are downsizing and need to look at multipurpose items to resolve storage issues as well as design. This bookcase is beautiful and functional. It arrived carefully packaged; in fact, I was unsure at a certain point if we were going to be able to open it! When we did, we found all the pieces in perfect condition and clearly labeled. The directions seemed clear to me as they showed pictures of all pieces and hardware. One criticism I found on several sites was that the center piece could be installed incorrectly and you wouldn't know until much later in the process. I found that looking very carefully at the diagrams made it possible to avoid these kind of mistakes. I put this together by myself as I am the detail person but had my husband help with the glass doors as I found it challenging to try to hold them and attach the hinges without an extra set of hands. Finally, there are a couple of tiny knicks in the finish which should be simple to cover up; otherwise, it is perfect so I have no real negatives. The only complaints I have are that although the two back pieces (very thin wood) were predrilled, the pieces to which they had to be attached were NOT predrilled. This was the final step, and after two hours, it was tough. Those comfortable with power tools or more upper body strength would find this easier. Secondly, there are parts labels (very small) and several larger labels, one of which is visible inside the bookcase. That label and another on the rear of the bookcase say not to remove them. I prefer to make the decisions about what is stuck to my furniture; these labels are NOT easily removed--a personal pet peeve. Same for the ultra sticky labels on the glass. Would I buy and assemble another or recommend to others? Absolutely (and I rarely ever write a review)! Thanks to all those who wrote the reviews that helped me to decide.
