I was looking for a good-looking modern/contemporary TV stand for my center channel speaker and home theater components (receiver, Blu-ray player, Xbox 360, HTPC, movies, etc). I have a projector and a huge screen, so I do not need this to put an HDTV on. It was to add visual balance under my screen. This product looks really great once put together and is very solid compared to similar products. I would have given this a 5-star rating. HOWEVER, the media shelves in the middle DO NOT have the room to hold my standard-size home theater receiver or Blu-ray player! They only fit small devices like a tiny DVD player or game console. I thought to myself that maybe I didn't read all the specs on the description about the sizes of the shelves...but I looked again, and there isn't any information like this to warn consumers like me. Sure, I could take out the middle shelving, but it would be a huge pain to take it all apart and put it back together. Plus, it uses glue to keep certain parts even sturdier. And besides, I wanted 4 separate spaces for my components--not one big space. Now I'm left to decide to take it all apart or send it back for a refund...grrr...
