This is a great little entertainment center, especially if you have tight spaces. The quality and the black finish look way more expensive than it really is. I decorate for a living and I have used this piece several times for smaller rooms.
Like other buyers, I was a little nervous about ordering such a large and expensive piece without being able to see it in person first, but I purchased this in the tobacco finish and am very pleased with the look and quality. Based on the picture I thought it would have a matte finish but it actually has a light sheen to it without being shiny or glossy, which actually looks even better than it looks in the photo. When I ordered I was told that assembly was not available in my area, just delivery inside the house with packaging removal, but the company that delivered it also put it together and set it up at no additional charge, which I was thrilled about. (They got a nice tip!) I don't mind putting furniture together, but the pieces of this entertainment center are large and heavy, so it would have been difficult if not impossible to assemble by myself.
I wanted this the minute I found it on Overstock! We ordered it and received it in two days! My husband had no problems putting it together and the finished product is exactly what I wanted! I looked for weeks at entertainment centers and once I found this I was done! Very good purchase, do not hesitate buying this! This was my first purchase from Overstock and I am already looking for my next purchase!
This entertainment center is constructed with material that many think is cheap. I disagree. Yes, it's made of MDF board with a veneer finish instead of solid wood. But, the appearance is very nice, and the cost (compared to solid wood) is reasonable. The surface cleans easily and retains the surface shine. Construction took time...but almost ALL furniture construction takes time. The only reason I gave it a four-star rating was because I had to adjust the L-shaped cabinet doors several times to equally distance the door edges around the cabinet opening. THAT was a challenge! Other than that, this is a beautiful piece of furniture that I would recommend.
