Arrived quickly, nicely packaged and in perfect condition. The directions were clear and the parts numbered, so putting it together wasn't so bad. It does not look cheap like so many tv cabinets in this price range. In fact, after it was assembled, I thought it looked rather high end for a contemporary piece! I keep walking into my den to admire it! I agree with other reviews, it is a nice dark brown/a bit on the red side but not true espresso. The best design features: the bottom piece (can't see the cords under/in back), the legs are really cool and the sliding doors are so much better than doors that swing open. It does have the typical flimsy back piece with the opening for cords, but the color is nice and I don't notice it. If you like the design, go for it.
