I am very pleased with this product. It is very strudy, EASY to assembly....did it myself, and completely meets my expectations. I needed a TV stand that would hold a small shelf-size stereo as well as all my other components (dvd, cable box, etc). The 10.5" space between bottom and middle shelf is perfect for what I needed. The next space between the middle and top is 8.25" so it's just right. I got the black glass and my 40" flat screen looks fantastic on it. The stand is tall which totally works for my space.
