I was looking for a taller than usual TV Stand for my new home. I liked the dark finished wood. Although I wasn't prepared to pay as much, I knew this would be a piece I would have for a long time. As most of these self assembly kits, it takes some organization to undersrand the parts. It took me a total of 3 hours to put it together by myself. I did take a couple of wrong turns, but in the end it was worth it.

The Media Stand shipped in large, very heavy box- you knew you were getting wood and not fiberboard. Packing was good and no pieces missing or damaged. Directions were better than most and went together easily- Looks like a more expensive piece of furniture that you would buy in a furniture store, not put together yourself. The most difficult "put together" was attaching the little magnet pieces that keep the doors shut. Very, very pleased with the purchase and would highly recommend it.

Looks good. Tall like I wanted with multiple shelves and drawers. However, I am concerned that the top isn't strong enough to hold up a lighter weight and size TV (40") than was advertised for this model without dipping in the center. Because the top dips in the center, it is making the side doors scrape against the top when they open. We will live with the issue for now since we spent so much time assembling the unit.

This is very nice for the price, glass doors and real wood. I did not have a problem with a 40" flat screen tv on top, no wood sagging here. Even the shelf studs were of metals and not plastics like the other tv stands. However, I did receive the shipment with a crack on one of the sides or else it would of been "excellent"

I'm really glad I have a small dolly or I could never have gotten it in the house. Packed exceedingly well except two pieces must have been damaged at the factory as it could not have happened in shipping. Two pieces of the roller drawer glides were bent and the rollers broken. I called and replacement parts were sent quickly. We did manage to bend them so that we could assemble the piece as I couldn't have it strewn all over the floor until they arrived. It did take over 3 hours for 2 of us to put it together. Instructions were rather simple and good. All pieces were marked. A little common sense was also required. I love it. It is exactly what I wanted. A place for all CD's, etc. and it is taller than most. Perfect. Great piece for the money.

I read a lot of positive reviews and decided to buy this unit. Liked the style and stain color for our house. What I didn't read were comments on the size of the cabinets. Their width is so narrow that none of our components fit inside so our only choice is to stack them in the center open area or on top when they should be behind the glass doors. After hours of self-assembly to find that the unit doesn't work out is very upsetting. Yes, it's a nice piece of furniture but useless as a tv/entertainment unit. We're going to check into Overstock's return policy.
1st - The item is NOT the color in the picture. It's Chocolate colored 2nd- The Drawers do not work or line up properly and will NOT look like they do in the photo. 3rd- This is not Stained, It's Painted. This is actually a white colored wood with a chocolate spray coat on it. If you nick a corner the paint chips off revealing a really light colored wood. very bad. I didn't rate this as total junk, just because its actually very sturdy and the glass doors are very nice.
Very nice unit. It exceeded my expectations due to some of the reviews I read prior to purchasing it. I am glad I purchased the unit. It is very sturdy and I was able to store all my components in it along with some decor ornaments. It has a very elegant look and it complements my family room. The one thing that I read in the reviews that I was most concerned about was the strong odor that radiated from the wood. Well, I didn't experience the odor from my unit. I can't guarantee you will like this unit, but I can tell you I am totally pleased with my purchase.
Directions are bad making it very easy to put a piece on in the wrong direction. Metal connectors made of soft metal and 4 broke and they know they are junk because it comes with a spare and they dont hold it together. I ended up putting screws in place. Door doesnt close unless I pull out drawers. Bottom piece is pressed wood and came bubbled. At the end of the day, it doesnt look bad but I wont be putting a tv on top just in case.
I am so disappointed with this item. First, delivery person left huge box on front steps in the rain. Was lucky to come home shortly after and could cover with plastic while I got help getting inside. Had to unpack from wet box. I have to say the I fell in love with this cabinet from the picture. Bought a new TV last week, finally, which is sitting on the floor now for Christmas! Beware, this cabinet is DARK, DARK pine. Not anything "medium" about this wood color. I expected it to be a tad darker based on some of the other reviews, but nothing like this. And some of the pieces have "dings, dents, and little nicks" on them as well. Tried to explain to overstock that I cannot wait 3 to 5 days for *** to come pick up item....will be out of town in 3 days. Not much help. I will have to pursue this again tomorrow. They blamed the total misrepresentation on my "monitor". I have looked at this picture over and over from work computer, my computer, at friend's, etc...it is not a monitor issue. Picture looks beautiful, actual cabinet looks exactly like an old 1971 piece of dark pine furniture I have in basement!
First, let me say that the box arrived completely destroyed! I thought for sure the wood would be scratched, but I was wrong ! It is real wood and it is just gorgeous! Much darker. The color is a deep brown but very elegant! I wish I could upload a picture of what it looks like. The assembly was smooth and flawless, all packages clearly marked, the directions were very detailed. Took about 2 hours. The height is perfect and our wall mounted LED TV looks great over it along with the sound bar ! I am beyond Happy - I can't stop looking at it! It anchors the room. Don't give it a second thought - buy it.
I thought this item would hold up as it is made out of wood and states it can handle some weight, not the case. I only have approximately ten pounds on the top of t,his cabinet, and no more than ten pounds on all the shelves combined, and the top has cracked after only approximately 40 days of use. Although it looks nice, it's not worth the money spent.
You get what you pay for. This was way too much work to assemble. The holes for the doors were not drilled in the right places. The finish chips off very easily. Next time I will go to a furniture store and pay a little more and get better quality. It looks ok once it is assembled, but I would definitely not buy it again or recommend it to someone else. I have no problems with overstock; it is the piece of furniture that I was disappointed with.
I am not a novice when it comes to putting furniture together. Quality of wood is good. The hardware screw and especially the aluminum Cam lock pin set is the worse I ever had to work with. I was very disappointed. If this ****** **** had provide better screws the set would have work well. I am sending this item back to OVERSTOCK.
Nice looking media stand in the pictures, but when I started putting mine together, I got to part E the interior vertical panels. I am supposed to have a pair one left and one right, but no mine has two lefts along with two left handed drawer tracks installed as well.This makes it impossible to put together. So as of right now, I am trying to get them to send me a right handed panel so I don't have to pack all this back up and send it back.
If you're expecting a quality, stylish piece of furniture at a bargain price, then you will be disappointed with this product. On the other hand, if construction and materials quality, is not as important to you as style, then you might be happy with this piece. Personally, I was disappointed when I opened the box and saw soft pine wood sprayed with a dark cherry finish and a tacky lacquer coating. You have to be very careful when assembling the product because the material will ding and scratch very easily. In fact, the wood is so soft, you could create an imprint in the wood using your fingernail. I would also be careful when placing items (e.g. Blu-ray or DVD cases) on the shelves as even those could mar the surface. Problems with delivery included a bent drawer hanger and missing magnetic latches. On the positive side, aesthetically, it is one of the nicer TV stands I've seen and from a viewing distance of 10 feet, it even looks likes it's a decent quality piece. Overall, however, if return delivery were not so expensive, I would return the product and spring for a more quality piece. But, since it's here, I'll live with it.
Very nice product, solid wood, no particleboard. It looks really nice once it's put together. We put a 52" tv on it and looks great.Fairly easy assembly, instructions are a little vague so you have to be aware of how the product will look at the end. I put one shelf upside down and had to reverse it but otherwise, no problems.
