My wife and I searched high and low for the perfect piece of furniture for our new 42 inch flat screen HDTV. We wanted something modern while not looking like a furturistic microwave station like most of the proposed "modern media centers" that are out there right now. We received the buffet in three boxes and it went together without too much drama. The quality of the wood and hardward is high considering the price. The interior cabinets are extremely roomy and are perfect for our plethera of components with room to spare. The buffet is fairly long however this actually creates a nice spatial balance for the large HDTV (and shelf speakers if have them). I would highly recommend this product. The only challenge may be in the receiving the buffet in delivery as it is quite heavy (three 70 lbs. boxes) and the construction was a little time consuming with around 200 pieces to essemble.
