Good look- a few issues
 from Las Vegas, NV,  Aug 14, 2012

I have a few pros and cons for this piece. Depending on where you want to use it and how often it might work for you. FIRST- cons: - It arrived damaged. I know this isn't Overstock's fault, but makes me wonder about the quality of the piece. It was packaged really well and very padded, but one side of the round top was completely smashed in. It revealed that the top was a wood or particle board as the smash left chipped pieces and exposed a few layers beneath the paint. I just wonder how well this table top would hold up to real life considering the damage. It also looked like if you did ever get a chip in the paint finish, it would cause more to chip off and expose the brown wood underneath. Not attractive. - The base seemed a little uncomfortable for sitting. I don't think there's any way around this, but with the round disc on the floor as the base, you always have to rest your feet on the base itself. It was just a little weird to me. It is aluminum so would wipe up feet prints easily though. Pros: - It has a good look and a great price for what you get - It has an aluminum base instead of a plastic one so it is definitely sturdier than some of the other tables like this out there. With that said, I will note that there was still a little wobble when I pressed on one side. I think this is unpreventable considering the top is larger than the base, but you probably wouldn't want to lean your weight against one side if you have food or other items on the table. - The lacquered finish is a clean white and very shiny- it has a very pretty look. I had mine next to a window and you could see the reflection from outside. There was one small bubble I could feel on the surface and I was worried if I tried to pick at it, it would leave a chip in the top, so I left it alone. I think it's a good finish, but it's just not perfectly smooth like glass if that's what you're hoping for (which I think would be impossible without a very high end lacquer and higher $$ anyway). -Assembly was SUPER easy. I am a 5'6" woman and I did it myself with no problems lifting any pieces, etc. - The bottom of the base has a plastic sort of seal around the entire edge. This was perfect for wood or even tile floors so the table doesn't slide around. It stays put pretty well. * Overall, you be the judge. I didn't end up keeping it because the dent/smash in the top made me decide against it. I would rather pay a little more than have a chipped up or smashed in thin wood top table in the future. BUT, if this is what you can afford and you want the look of a modern tulip version table, I do think this is a good price for what you get.
