3 hours, couple glasses of wine, movie, and it was fully assembled solo. Could be done much quicker. Be forwarned that instructions are given solely in pictures. No written instructions at all (I like words.) Relieved that all the parts were there (I've put enought of this type furniture together to know that parts are offten missing.) Only had issue with one connection that stripped out, but the use of wood glue and the many other connection points will render that faulty connection incidental. Overall, I feel I got what I paid for and so am happy. Returned a smaller unit (by 12 inces) to the store that had cost $10 more. Thought that unit was solid wood, this unit is lighter weight and more verstile. Decent buy.
After viewing a dozen furniture store rooms, there was nothing in my price range (up to $$$) that I liked. They all looked way overpriced or just not the style that would fit. I found this item and it had the look that would work and for the most part had solid reviews. I decided to take the plunge knowing that even if I didn't like it, I spent far less that I had planned. I was definitely suprised. It looks just like the picture and is a lot more solid than I had anticipated. It is made of particle wood and veneer, however it's far less obvious and looks much better than some of the $$$ dollar pieces I saw at the showrooms. I am very relieved I went with this item. It looks great in my living room. It supports a heavy 60inch plasma no problem and it fits perfectly. I also have a sound bar sitting on the top and it supports my other Xbox/Direct TV box without issue. The drawers are spacious where I store a lot of misc items and components. It took me less than 3 hours to assemble solo. The directions aren't the greatest in detail, and if you just put things together without making sure things like the finished sides are facing out etc.. you may have to do some re-work. The item was packed really well, but I still discovered a cracked drawer bottom and rear 'lip' which is just a decoration and wouldn't have been obvious. I ended up contacting Overstock customer support anyway and the lady I talked to was very attentive and apologetic. It took a matter of minutes to start the process on a resolution. I had my replacement pieces within a week and took 10 minutes to swap them out. Save yourself some money and get a product that looks great.
