The finish looks better than I expected for an MDF based piece. There are no sliders on the wooden legs. Only three shelf adjusting holes are provided. The provided printed instructions were more accurate than the online version, but eliminated all the text on the pictures. Install took one 79 year old man over half a day. Not enough wood glue is provided. The screws to install the fireplace are almost impossible to install (I only used the top two as a result). I followed another buyers advice to put top on after installing the fireplace insert, but it was still too tough since no starter holes were provided. No wire guides are provided.
This is a decent product for the price I paid. The finish is a bit cheap and will flake off if you're not careful when tightening the screws. When mine arrived, one of the support pieces was cracked all the way through, but I was able to order another that arrived within a few days. Nice surprise. However, after inspecting all the pieces, I put the unit together by myself in about 5 hours. It's pretty involved, especially if you're by yourself and some pieces are tricky to line up. That being said, I got to the point where I inserted the faux fireplace and heard something fall. Turned out the fake log was cracked and a small piece fell out leaving a noticeable hole in the fake log. I called customer support and they told me the insert was back ordered so I told them to place the order anyway and I'd wait to finish the assembly. Well, since I figured I'd get another insert, I went ahead and opened the insert to see if I could retrieve the broken fragment and see how bad it was. I was actually able to get it and glue in back into place. Good thing I did because after more than two weeks, I still didn't get the replacement part, but since I fixed it myself, I called to cancel the order. The faux flames are a bit cheesy, and it's a tad too low to the ground to be seen while sitting on my couch (coffee table blocks the fireplace). The heater works well too.
