I've had this assembled for a few weeks, and I'm struck by a few things. One-- its design. It really is a good looking table. Clean, modern lines, sturdy. Sometimes I also notice the veneer is similar to what you'd find at a certain Sweedish chain of put-together-yourself furniture: i.e., fake looking. It's not bad. And for the price, much better quality. I use this as my TV entertainment center, and it works great. I have a tube table radio that fits PERFECTLY into the cut-out. It looks like the two were made for each other. Overstock shipped it in no time, although UPS took a while to get it here. Assembly was involved, but not impossible. Overall, I'd buy this again in a heartbeat.
