Overall, when balancing price paid and quality, this appears to be a nice divider. Since I just received it, I cannot comment on quality of construction or durability. Construction is a wood chipboard (contrary to previous reviewer, who said "not a sliver of wood...") with what appears to be a faux wood finish. The photo renders color inaccurately; it is more of a brown with golden brown than the reddish mahogany pictured or described in product description. While a prior reviewer complained that "it is much bulkier than the picture led me to think, taking a lot more space in the room than I thought it would," in fact, the divider is a bit smaller than described: 73.5 inches wide, not 75 inches, as stated. Height is 74.5 inches, not 76 inches, as stated. The prior reviewer expected a classier look, for the price. I actually believe that for under $300, this is a nice piece. It is unrealistic to think that for this price, a buyer would get genuine mahogany or hardwoods. Of course, durability and quality of construction has yet to be seen but overall, I feel that I got a good value, assuming it holds up.
