We are happy with the overall look and quality of this TV stand. It was difficult to assemble and took us about 8 hours to put it together. All of the parts came in a large bag and had to be separated and labeled. It was not clear what part was what and there was one error in the assembly instructions. We were somewhat disappointed that only one side of some of the parts are black, leaving a small strip of the compressed wood exposed in the back of the cabinet. You cannot see it once you have your DVD player, cable box etc. placed in the cabinets but it is just a frustrating shortcut that the manufacturer made.
