We felt that the product was not exactly as displayed. It was much darker than shown. After more than 3 hours putting product together, because of the strong, strong odor, we first left it outside to air out to begin with, then my husband used steel wool over the entire stand to take the dark finish off before using a strong polyurethane product to help mask the odor. This whole process took approximately a week of many hours of hard work. I love the style of the media stand; however, I'm still burning candles in the room to mask the odor that we can't totally alleviate. Also, instead of being 54" wide, our stand was only 53". That made a difference in the size TV we purchased - 55inch.
The entertainment stand looks incredible. It is solidly built and gets compliments from all who see it. Make sure to read the dimensions prior to ordering as it was not quite as large as I anticipated, as I can't appropriately space a pair of quality stereo speakers. My only other complaint is that there is a center support leg that makes it feel slightly wobbly, although that could just be my floor. Regardless, I absolutely love the stand. The build quality is solid, the doors are pretty cool, and the styling is modern yet also timeless. If you like the design and know the dimensions, you will not be disappointed.
I looked at many TV consoles in different stores, and yes, I did find other consoles that I liked but the price tag was around $1500. With much hesitation I did order this unit here, and to my surprise, it turned out to be more beautiful than most of the units I had seen in the stores. The unit arrived 2 days after I placed the order (amazing). It took us 3 hours to assemble. The quality is excellent. The wood looks real and came in excellent condition. I just love it. the only thing I would change about it are the knobs. I am going to replace it with stainless steel knobs to make it even look more beautiful. Happy customer here.
We have never ordered furniture online before from Overstock when we purchased this item. However, we have ordered many items from them before and they have satisfied us every time. Since this was the first one for furniture, we were slightly nervous that it wouldnt satisfy our needs but we were confident that Overstock.com provides excellent products, prices, and the best service. They are #2 in all of America in customer service! That being said, the product arrived in good condition and was exactly what we wanted. The best thing about it is the sliding glass doors. Were easy sliding can open up the shelves or close it to prevent dust from going in. Drawers open very nice with great english dovetail joints. This is very rare to see in an entertainment unit. It just shows all the little details this item has that is hard to find these days. Details are what makes the difference for us. The back has a long and big enough hole for wiring. The knobs and handles have a stainless steel look to them which is real classy. The top of the console is is smooth. The finishing is real nice and will seem to last for a long time.
