I bought this for my son's college apartment. It certainly meets the requirement for strength and durability. It does not have predrilled holes, so you will need to mark and drill your own. Note that the table top is finished on both sides. We bought the "walnut" table, but in actuality had a walnut top and a natural top to choose from.
The table was a good price and it came unscratched an within a week. I knew it would require assembly, put I did not know that I would have to drill hole in the table. It cam with NO DIRECTIONS and NO TEMPLATE for drilling small hole for the screws to attach to the undereside. It is possible, I think, not to drill (the core is particle board), but I wasn't sure. Assembly of the pedestal was a little tricky. Instructions would have been helpful. Took me about 45 min. to get everything set up. The table top has two finishes to choose from, one on either side. Clever idea. The color I chose on line was the same as the product. The table is sturdy enough and is working for me just as I had hoped.
The table was kind of a pain to put together. It is most definitely NOT something that dismantles easily for storage. Once it's put together, you won't want to try to take it apart for storage. Maybe it's due to our lack of skill in putting the table together but it's very wobbly and unstable. Too bad actually because the price was right, it's just the right size for my needs, and it has a nicely finished table top and stand.
