Exactly what I was looking for... I saw in a few reviews that some people tried to say this wasn't wood. This is wood...solid all the way through (execpt the back cover...of course). The stand was put up in about 45 mins (which included wood glue) and has proved to be sturdier than anything I could have ever hoped for. It looks beautiful in my living room and I have already received multiple comments on it's beauty. It's a deep cherry red color. The glass on the front allows you to use the remotes with doors closed and surprisingly keeps out a lot of dust. The back cover has premade holes to fit the cables through...not just on the large middle compartment, but on the two side doors as well. Something I REALLY loved since I was able to fit multiple game consoles in the side doors. I would highly recommend this if anyone is as sick of particle board and veneer (as I am) yet needs something in the budget.
