I received my ottoman in a timely manner with no parts damaged or missing. The dark brown and black were precisely what I was aiming for; and therefore, the reviews that I read prior to purchasing this product that stated cautions about the color scheme only pushed me towards taking the plunge. The leather on the product is very taut, but appears to be of a good quality that can take some hard-hits. This is not your plush lounging ottoman, but it is still an extremely functional and painless footrest. I could not be more pleased with the functionality of the compartments! The two flip-tops are also divided in the center of the ottoman, (so that the fourth edge of the table top has something to rest on evenly) which I absolutely love. The storage area is quite deep and ideal for hiding blankets, books, and I would assume childrens toys. The ottoman looks classy regardless of the configuration of the tops (whether they both expose the trays/both expose the cushions/or one and one). The lip on the trays is a good few inches deep, so using this area as an eating surface is a little unrealistic unless you want to have the whole cushion on your thighs up off the ottoman, or if you'd like to hunch over and be wary of the change in height. For all other displays, however, the trays are perfect. All surfaces are non-porous and wipe clean very easily. The only downfall of this product for me would have to be the fact that the legs (which are the only assembly; screwed in by hand) do not line up perfectly. To get each one to face the proper angle, some of the legs are a bit loose, twisting easily when touched. I would assume this is not a problem for everyone considering it is probably luck of the draw with the accuracy of the holes drilled; also, as I do not move the ottoman much, it has not seriously bothered me or made me feel like I made a bad decision.
