I really liked the solid blockwood construction and the stain color, which nicely complements the other furnishings in my media room. Aligning the doors was a bit fiddly but worked out just fine using a piece of a cereal box to provide a bottom spacer. I'm using the buffet as a combination serving table and music sheet storage cupboard. To give five stars, Vilas needs to upgrade the inner hinges (too much vertical play) and the upper butt joint securing cams (which lack the solid and positive gradated tightening that one gets with Ikea butt joint cams.) It would also be nice to have an extra set of shelf holes at the vertical midpoint on each side. Otherwise the piece is excellent value for money (see photos.)
Overall, I really like this buffet. It is rather small, but I needed something that didn't take up a lot of space in my dining room. It was very easy to put together and I was able to do it by myself in about an hour. I am only giving it 3 stars because I feel like the quality of the stain could be better. I am also annoyed that I wasn't able to get extra cam locks as a few of mine broke. The size used by the manufacturer is not available at the local hardware stores. It took a few weeks to find out that Overstock was not able to get the parts. This was after I was sent the entire bottom piece as a replacement when I had asked for just cam locks. Looks nice. We will see how long it holds up!
