The design of this console can only be described as weird - almost unusable. The side cabinets are not shelves covered with doors but half-shelves in the doors and half-shelves in the unit which makes it almost unusable except for small things and obviously DVD/CD's. The quality of the product was also a little disappointing, but about what most cheap furniture is like these days. All the parts were there, packing was excellent and the instructions were good. I don't think I'd buy this product again. It is working OK now that I've modified the back to accomodate my equipment.
