Overall my wife and I are very happy with this console. I put it together, it took a little less than an hour, and if you follow the step by step directions, it's very simple. It's nice and sturdy. We put a 40 inch LCD TV on top of it and it pretty much takes up the width of it. There is a lot of room infront of it though, my wife was hoping she could fit some decorative things on either end of it, but there was no room. SO for you wives out there, that information is there for you. Guys, all you need to worry about is that a 40 inch tv fits great. I don't know if I'd go much bigger than that though.
