This was the first time I ordered anthing from Overstock. I setting up a condo and was starting from 'scratch'... I needed everything and had a very tight budget. I am also a 'designer' so I am very pickey.. The price and quality of this piece was outstanding.. actual wood veneer, not laminate, which give the nice rich texture. The promptness of the delivery, to my doorstep and into my living room by UPS was amazing, as I was putting this together myself and the box was about 70 pounds. It was packaged very well. It was also easy to put together with a screw gun and hammer for the dowels. the ONLY thing that was an issue was that there was not enough GLUE for the large amount of dowels, and I i did not have any around in the condo (have lots in my house!). Will DEF> order from OS again! Looking for coffee tables now!
Received unit in one 80 pound box by UPS in two days,opened box removed parts inventoried all all there. All screws,bolts,washers were in numbered packets per the instructions,used one Philips head screwdriver only tool needed. One end panel had a slight scratch on same touched up with matching scratch repair stick. Went together in about 1 1/2 hours with no trouble. Nice piece of furniture real sturdy.
The quality of the product is fantastic, as you would expect when it weighs 70 pounds in total (2 boxes). My only criticism is the instruction manual as one additional line of explaination would help (i.e., drawer wheels up/down, center wood support flush with back support, push lock mechanisms all the way in prior to joining, etc). Instead, I was starring at the pictures which are tiny trying to determine the appropriate assembly. As one of the other reviewers said, it does take awhile to put together by yourself, as it took me 5 hours with a power drill. So if you have someone else available to help, I am sure it will go quicker. Overall very satsified with the product, you will not be disappointed.
Receiving the one-hundred-pound box of various wood pieces and screws is daunting; however, taking the time to assemble the Valenciara Coffee Bean Entertainment Console is worthwhile. NOTE: Do not overlook the following product description: "Accommodates most flat-screen TVs up to 60 inches." The Console has a border around the top (as shown in pictures of the product). The width of the Console is 60-inches, so I would advise putting a TV no more than 55-inches on this Console. I have a 70-inch flat screen TV and had to modify the top with two 3/4-inch thick MDF pieces from a local lumber yard. I glued the two 3/4-inch thick MDF pieces together and stained them to match the Console's coffee bean color. For those of you who may want to put a 70-inch flat screen on this Console, I recommend cutting two 3/4-inch thick MDF pieces with the following dimensions: 56 3/4-inches wide and 15 1/4-inches deep. Placed on top of each other, the pieces will be 1 1/2-inches thick: Just high enough to allow the sides of a 70-inch flat screen to extend over the Console border. Other than that roadblock, the Console is excellent. It's holding a 70-inch flat screen, a bluray player, a cable box, and sound system speakers. I highly recommend this product. (Just be prepared for some "fun" assembling it.)
