I couldn't be more pleased with this product. The image on the site is very similar to how it looks in person. The pillars are plastic but the shelves are particle-board or a composite wood - sturdy enough for a 24" inch flatscreen TV on top with no wobble at all. Assembly is also ridiculously easy. Great value for the money and perfect for a corner entertainment center.Also, this was my first time using Overstock.com and the experience overall was positive. Had a problem with UPS delivery (they returned to sender) but Overstock credited my account and immediately sent another one. Will definitely use Overstock.com in the future.
