    • Very Nice Media Cabinet!
      Verified Purchase

      I am very pleased with the purchase of this media cabinet. I was considering getting a lowboy type cabinet, but this has worked out better. There is much more storage and options to open or close the bottom part of the unit. The color is beautiful, a dark walnut brown. Once all put together, it is a very heavy and sturdy unit. It took me about 45 minutes to put together by myself. Furniture sliders come in handy if you have them. I did run into a problem however. Once shipped to me, the very first step in putting it together, the main shelf was pre-drilled incorrectly on one side and not at all on the other, talk about frustrating! The instructions tell you to contact the manufacturer directly (Dimensions Furniture) and not who you purchased it from. So in this instance, I did not contact Overstock. However, Dimensions had the fastest and best customer service I've experienced. The correct shelf was at my doorstep within 48 hours. I could NOT believe that, I figure'd it would take weeks and headaches. I just contacted them on their website and they responded by email QUICK. No question but what was my address and BOOM, there it was. That was the only hiccup I had throughout the process. I was super impressed with the manufacturer. The storage at the bottom is a great place to store vinyl records. Above is room for your stereo, record player, or whatever else you want to put in. The left side has an adjustable shelf with 3 preset positions. The back panel has 4 holes drilled out to run your cords through. Again, the color and finish is gorgeous. The hairpin legs give it that retro look. If I could change a couple things with it, this is what I would do. I wish the depth was about 1.5" - 2" deeper. Width wise, you can fit flush your standard audio component (amplifier, receiver, cd player, dvd player, etc.). However once your speaker wires, hdmi cables, rca cables, etc are connected, it takes up another inch or two, so the front of my Outlaw Audio stereo receiver is jutting out about an inch (see picture). Not a deal breaker, but just saying if I was the designer........seems to be a common issue with furniture today, most are media cabinets are 15" deep when they need to be 17". But, most people don't buy old school stereo equipment that size anymore, so I do understand. Also, I would not mind 1 extra shelf on the left, but that's just my personal preference. I might make one myself in the future. All in all, a wonderful edition to our home, and I am looking forward to many evenings relaxing and enjoying my new music setup. *just to note, in the second picture there is a scratch under the stereo, it didn't ship that way. That was me not being careful putting my stereo in!

      Love this vintage/retro, mid-century modern style console. It was very easy to put together and is surprisingly sturdy. Adds a nice touch to any room. Can also double as a laptop desk/work-space. Would recommend.

    • Very cool table
      Verified Purchase

      This media table is the perfect size for my space, and is now my favorite spot in my home. I'm using it similarly to how the picture shows it with a record player and to store a few books and some items that are important to me. The design looks extremely high quality and I've gotten numerous compliments on it already. I love this table for it's functionality and design. Highly recommend.

    • Solid quality
      Verified Purchase

      I was looking for a mid-century modern style console for my husband's record player and record collection for his music studio. This is perfect and he absolutely loves it! Solid quality (VERY heavy)and great functionality. I was a little disappointed that it arrived with a few dings in the front, but it wasn't worth the trouble for me to return it (I just used some wood pens and touched it up).

      This came in the mail super fast (and was crazy heavy) but SO worth getting it up to our 3rd-floor apartment. It did take a few hours to set up, but that's what you get for the price. It really looks beautiful and could pass for a similar $1,000+ piece. It's bigger than we expected but were very pleasantly surprised by that as it will function perfectly as our record player + records storage and also our cable box + internet box + x-box storage. We especially love how easily it hides all of the cords. Very happy with this and higly recommend!

      In a nutshell: Looks really nice when finished. Build is easy but instructions are flawed. One piece was drilled incorrectly but luckily we trusted our intuition over the instructions. Cam locks are a little cheap. Would recommend if you are comfortable building furniture and have someone to help. In more detail: Very nice finished product. The wood veneer has more red in it then we were expecting but not a deal-breaker. A nice understated retro-looking piece that holds our electronic equipment and hides the wires and plugs in the cabinets below. At first I had the wires and power strip on the floor behind and below the cabinet, but they were too visible so I moved them inside the lower cabinets. That made a big difference. The build was pretty simple but two big issues with the instructions. First, DO NOT turn the cam locks until you hear a "click" as described. We did this with three of them and it took quite a bit of force to get the click. Turns out that "click" was the plastic cam lock breaking. We had to disassemble a piece and the cam locks that "clicked" were actually broken and fell apart when removed. Fortunately we discovered this early on and stopped over-tightening them then. Just tighten the cam until it is firm but you'll not hear a click. We're going to call and ask for 3 replacements. About the piece we had to disassemble: The center divider for the lower, covered cabinets was drilled incorrectly. The instructions clearly stated that the openings for the cam-locks should face to the left and the diagram was drawn the same way. BUT, if we would have left it that way, we would have ended up with an unfinished edge on the divider facing forward and the finished edge facing backwards towards the back of the cabinet! It looks like the company may be aware of the issue because they put a sticker on the unfinished edge that says "back," but they have not updated the manual. Watch for this if you buy and install. Overall, everything came out square and fit together correctly. We had to use some force and leverage to get the back pieces to pop in correctly but we got it done. I recommend this piece but I hope people don't fall into the same pitfalls that we did and are willing to use their better judgement over instructions that may not exactly jive with the materials they got. And make your cams from metal, dang! :)

    • Beautiful Media Console.
      Verified Purchase

      My wife and I absolutely love this media console. Unfortunately we didn't check the dimensions before purchasing and we don't have room for it. We're sad to see it go, but we decided that when we move and have more space we will purchase this again because we love it so much.

      I’ve had this piece a year now and it still looks and functions perfectly. Color is true to picture and doors slide easily. We used it for a printer which we hid and albums on the shelves and it was perfect size. Love this.

    • Quality Furniture
      Verified Purchase

      I absolutely love this unit. The delivery was faster than expected (thank you overstock!). The box was HEAVY, but I took that as a good sign. Everything was packed with care. Having put together a ton of furniture for years, I was really pleasantly surprised with this one. Everything was labeled well. Each piece felt heavy, and even though it's a veneer finish, it feels quality. No warped, awful, scratchy particle board in this piece. The instructions were overall easy to follow. You will need to take a close look at the details in the pictures for a few steps, but I put the whole thing together without any problems. The hardest part was the back panel, because you have to double check that it continues to fit on all four sides once you've started screwing it in, and it's a snug fit. The finished product is awesome. It totally changes the space in the room for the better.

      This unit when assembled looks very nice. However we received damaged pieces three times and never did get the one piece replaced, refused by Overstock. Not great customer service in this one instance but we have had past good esperience.

      I ordered this as a surprise for my husband, he wanted a cool way to set up his record player and he LOVES it. Everyone comments on it and asks where I got it, they cannot believe i got it from overstock and how inexpensive it was. This thing looks just like the pictures and was easy to assemble we love it so much!

      Love this piece. Fits in perfectly with the space. Conceals all wiring as hoped. Perfect for a record player, receiver, cable box, modem, router, books, and records. The assembly is a bit tedious, but it's well worth it.

      I've received so many compliments on this console. I use it almost exclusively as a bookshelf, and it's wonderful. I typically don't like mdf furniture, but this is just so pretty and you could never tell, it looks so rich and expensive. I put it together by myself and it wasn't too bad. It's definitely worth the work you put into it!

    • Great piece!

      I'm very pleased with this purchase. It arrived well protected. The colour is more of a cherry red than brown. I put it together by myself in about an hour, easy directions. It's very sturdy. I just love it!

    • Great media shelf
      Verified Purchase

      We searched for a while for a piece of furniture for our record player and receiver. We wanted something with a back to hide wires but also something that held multiple media. All pieces arrived in great shape and in about 5 days from ordering. We are going to use for our record player, receiver, and blueray player. The blueray and receiver will fit in the left two shelves. The record player would look great in the right top shelf but bc it's in toddler reach, we plan on putting the record player on top. The piece is really nice quality and the color is a deep brown. It was very easy to put together. There are holes in each of the back sections which allows for creativity on how you can use the piece.

      This item works ok, but it doesn't have as much room for albums as I'd hoped. The construction is solid but the veneer and materials are kind of inexpensive so any scratch or bump shows up

      There was a slight sliver chipped off over of the doors when I took the pieces out of the box, but I colored it in so it's unnoticeable. The unit is a great place to house my LPs, Alexa, turntable, and coffee table books. Looks great.

      Looks great, works perfectly for holding our turntable and records. Minus one star for veneer chipping very easily, it chipped a little in a few places just from the assembly process, but luckily it’s not super noticeable unless you’re looking closely.
