This is a great stand, especially for the price. I looked at quite a few stands in local stores that were twice as much or more and not any nicer. And no one had anything but black, I wanted something different. The main difference seemed to be the lack of some sort of cord wrangler in the back, which I did not want in the first place. The tempered glass with the gray legs and silver accents looks great. It comes with extra leg cap pieces in case one is chipped. I really cannot think of any thing negative to say about this stand at all. Note that the picture does look more like a glossy silver and and they are actually a speckled shiny gray. I did see some reviews about assembly being difficult (also for the black model) and I cannot understand why, you just have to have a little patience, as with anything you have to assembly from instructions.
