I chose these because I was looking for a smaller nightstand that would fit in my limited space and these are not over-sized at all (yet not too small). I had no hesitation in trying them as I have the matching coffee table downstairs and have been very happy with it for 6 months. When they arrived they were very well packaged with plenty of foam and absolutely no damage. The instructions were easy to understand (although I do recommend reading them carefully and paying close attention to the pictures) and not just throwing it together haphazardly. They gave extra of almost all the hardware which is good because I broke one of the cam-locks trying to get it into the hole. By myself it took me about 2 hours for the first one and an hour and 10 mins for the second one...although I am fairly slow and a big direction reader. Overall they were easy to put together aside from a few holes that weren't 100% aligned. With a little elbow grease it wasn't too much of an issue. The piece overall is VERY sturdy and solid. The top drawer on both units is a little stiff rolling in and out. I wonder if this is a problem in the cut of the template or something. But it's not enough that it would prevent me from purchasing again. Overall, a great buy for the price. I would highly recommend any piece from the Aristo line based on this purchase and the coffee table.
