Item matches photo well. Construction is veneer over MDF. Arrives in two boxes totaling about 120 pounds. Packed reasonably well with styrofoam, but parts are heavy and rough handling could cause them to rip through the foam. Instructions were adequate, but should be reviewed carefully and thoroughly. Only the base comes partially assembled and had to be redone because the majority of the screws had been over-tightened at the factory and had stripped the holes. Had to put wood glue in the holes and re-do. I'm handy and mechanically inclined, but assembly took about 4 hours. Don't over-tighten the screws because they will wallow out the MDF pretty easily. Only significant disappointment was that holes were not pre-drilled for the drawer glides. Instead, there are rough indentations where the drawer glide screws should go. These indentations aren't precise enough to install the drawer glides so the drawer fronts won't rub against the cabinet frame. If I had known this beforehand, I would have made my own measurements and located where the drawer glides should go before pre-driling my own holes. Hardware for the sliding door is thin plastic. Will have to see if this holds up over time. Assembly issues and plastic door hardware aside, it's worth what I paid and will serve the purpose. Other reviewers complained about the legs being inadequate and they are far apart. Too early to tell whether this will be a problem, but I don't plan on putting a TV directly on the cabinet. It's possible that the wide placement of the legs might cause the entire cabinet to sag in the middle over time. If that happens, the sliding door and drawers will probably jam.
I really like the table. It's decent quality--solid wood, not MDF--for the price. Had to reorder because the glass insert didn't fit (there was a bubble on one edge of the glass, so it wasn't perfectly round), but a replacement was sent quickly, and it looks great in my living room.
