This a great piece of furniture. I was able to assemble it in an hour and it wasn't difficult at all. It looks terrific and fits my 42" flat screen TV perfectly. I like the fact that the back boards have catches that screw in and hold it firmly in place. On some other furniture sets there is just cardboard that you have to nail in and it doesn't last. Also, it is nice how the back board has a hole large enough to fit several cords while not being too large that you can see through it. The adjustable shelves are nice and I was able to fit on the open shelves my A/V receiver, Tivo, Wii, and PS3. That left extra storage space for the shelves with doors. One downside to this product is the silver handles that it comes with--they are plastic. From far away you can't tell, but it just seems cheap. I replaced the plastic handles with some more durable, better looking ones I bought at the hardware store. They only cost a couple dollars each. But that is a minor inconvenience for an overall quality piece for what it costs.
