I received this as a gift. I love the look. The dimensions were accurate. It fits well in the space. However, there are two huge reasons I'm docking two full stars: assembly and no weight information. And one small reason: one of the drawers doesn't line up as nicely as the other two. Assembly was a nightmare. I began about 3pm in the afternoon (granted, I was doing it on my own, my husband was at work and the instructions recommend 2 people). I have put together many pieces of furniture over the years. My parents stopped over to check it out at 6:30...and I was still putting it together. Drill holes were crooked and many were just slightly too small. The cam screws stripped (due to the crooked and small drill holes). My hands are still bruised from forcing them into place using the screwdriver. Finally, I got our electric drill which helped a bit, but did not help the stripping issue. My dad and I spent another 1.5 hours on it and got it together except the drawers. I finished the drawers in under an hour. One drawer doesn't line up as nicely. I'm pretty sure that one of the pre-drilled hole for the drawer slide is off, so I could drill a new hole, but at that point I just didn't care I carefully moved the piece in front of our old entertainment center, and moved our tv on to the top. After a few minutes of swapping out cords, equipment, etc., I was in business. The piece looked great, fit great. I sat down, turned on the tv and after about 20 minutes, heard a large crack sound and I noticed that the top shelf was bowing under the weight of the tv. I moved the tv to one side, and now it is hanging partially off of the top, off-centered while I searched for weight information. No weight information in the assembly and care guide. I found online that the piece is not weight tested. I'm so discouraged. To send it back would be useless now that I have it together. So now I'm trying to decide whether I leave it off centered and weird looking, but not bowing with weight, or if I sell it because I'm pretty sure I won't be able to return it now that I have it together. It's been off-centered for three days now without any more bowing or cracking, so we'll see. It's really a nice looking piece at the end of the day...just not so sure it's worth all the hassle.
Finally, a contemporary design which adds to your living space and doesnt have to be made from wood. This entertainment center arrived weeks sooner than expected constructed in 1 piece with only the thick tempered glass top to assemble. I do recommend a 2nd pair of hands to help as the glass top is very heavy and I scratched the lacquer surface trying to do it by myself. At first I thought it might be too low, but once assembled, PERFECT! It is more than a TV stand but an elegant design element. It was so fantastic to have finally found just what I was looking for leave it to Overstock to have found this jewel.
Love this tv stand. It’s not real wood but it’s a great price for a really nice looking stand. It look my husband 2.5 hours to put together and he’s very hand just an FYI. Fits our 55 in great!
The finish is very rough and cheap, appearing damaged, in some corners. The wood color varies somewhat between the sliding doors and thee rest of the unit. Note that the sliding doors don't lock into position in the middle; they are always free-floating from side to side so you have to line up the doors evenly by hand when they are in ththe center. But overall, it looks great.
