We ordered this coffee table for our back room. Overstock offers a fabulous price for this product. There's a designer version out there that looks *exactly* the same, but costs four times as much. The item arrived quickly, and required no assembly (should be obvious... but just in case someone wasn't sure). It's on the smaller side, and a little low -- although this works fine for our needs. Be sure to check the measurements if size and height are important to you. We did notice that there were a couple of small scratches in the acrylic already, after removing it from the box. You can't really see them unless you're looking for them, or the light is shining on them just right. We haven't tried it yet, but I have read that you can use the same stuff you use to buff scratches out of acrylic fish tanks to buff scratches out of acrylic coffee tables. You will want to be sure you're not placing sharp objects on the table that could scratch it. And definitely use coasters -- although, I'd suggest finding "soft" coasters (like ones made from fabric/felt, silicone, etc.
