Assembles easily like an IKEA piece. Good idea for manufacturer to enclose a color matched crayon to touch up any mars on the components. Hanging on the wall requires two people otherwise assembled by one. The three sections of the top shelf easily accommodates my DVD player. Two complaints: One is the unsightly metal cleat. The video assembly instructions show a color matched particle board cleat but what is included is a sturdier metal cleat. Maximum sturdiness is appreciated. However, when assembled the cleat is clearly visible if at eye level which, if this piece is used as intended as a TV stand, it will be. It distracts from the sleak beauty of the unit. The second is that the lower of the two shelves does not include a rear cutout for wires as the upper shelf does. That means that sound bars, which are almost always longer than 18.5 inches (the width of the three sections of the upper shelf) have to go on the lower shelf. My sound bar is 40 inches long and will not fit between the wall mounted tv itself and the top of the unit so has to go on the lower shelf. A much better look than for a sound bar to sit on top of the stand. My suggestion is for the manufacturer to include a cutout in the back wall of the lower shelf (you can see that there is a matching back wall on the lower shelf whereas the top shelf opens to the room's wall itself).
Every single piece of this set is gorgeous. Small complaint would be that some of them are hard to assemble because the bars are bent (not visibly - they just don't line up with the screws) so it was a challenge to get them put together. Other pieces took literally 10 minutes to assemble. Gorgeous furniture look stunning in our home office.
Bought to hold a stereo and rather largish record collection. Shelves have been filled w/ LPs for close to a year now with very little sagging. The wood for the shelves is rather thin and curiously light, but they are solid and have not sagged any more than they did when I initially loaded them up w/ heavy records (which was shockingly very little). Everyone loves the look. As others have noted, I did have one shelf that had a corner knocked off in shipping, but it isn't a structural part and was easily glued back in place with no visible evidence left.
Nice price, good quality. Only had it about 3 weeks, wanted something modern and doesn't take up a lot of space. Took about 40 minutes to put it together and install it upon the wall. Wasn't too hard. I would recommend. Very happy with my purchase so far. Man cave upgraded.
