This set was very easy to assemble. The folding legs makes it that way. It comes with various sized screws for mounting TV's to the stand. The only issue I have is there's no easy way to line up the top glass so it's centered on the stand. It would have been nice to have a guide of some sort.
I was looking for something new for my TV, and I wanted it to be clean and modern. It seems "clean and modern" means "shiny black, glass shelves, and chrome" to most people, as that's about all I could find anywhere else. I'm glad I checked Overstock and found this entertainment center. I'd been leaning toward a mid-century modern look for my apartment, and the style of this helped bring everything together. It's solid wood, so it's sturdy, and it was fairly simple to put together (though it took about two hours). While I did notice some finger joints connecting a few of the boards (understandable at this price), the overall color and consistency of the stain helps to hide them, and I have to get really close to even see them. The doors have adjustable hinges, a feature usually found on more expensive furniture, and they make it easy to get the doors centered in their openings. I had to drill holes at the back of the two cabinets for cords, but I already had the tools for that. Some people might be annoyed that there aren't holes already there, though. After my purchase, I saw this exact same piece of furniture in a different color at R&B for thousands of dollars, and although it's probably made "better" and uses "better" wood, I used the savings to buy a bigger (better!) 55" TV.
Unfortunately, the first one was damaged in transit by the shipping agent , despite the excellent packaging - but Avista replaced the whole unit without any hesitation! The second unit went together easily and the fit, finish of the wood and the weight of the glass panels is excellent. This is a beautiful unit and has strength to handle a 40" flat screen easily. My brother purchased a slightly different model from Overstock, made by Avista...both of these TV stands are well made and look better in "person". Hopefully the shippers won't stack anything heavy on yours, to damage it!
Great TV/media center for the price. Directions are easy to follow and doesn't take much time to assemble. The TV mounting is especially easy and the shelves have ample space for even the tallest of equipment. Very satisfied.
