Solid Tempered Glass, Strong, and very bold to brighten any room. Its very sturdy and matches the 42 in Panasonic Plasma TV which I purchased before making the choice for the TV stand. I like everything about this TV stand! Its really high quality glass and metal. the legs are metal, and the back piece where the wires go through is also made of metal. Assembly was very easy, about 10 minutes if you know what you are doing. The only two con's i have for this TV Stand one of which was the rings that came with it are made of plastic (black and silver) and I wish they were metal. Also since this TV stand is black, dust shows up on it so you are going to be cleaning it every other week or so. However despite these factors it was a great purchase and would recommend this TV stand for everyone! Great Price, Quality, and appearance.
