After reading all the reviews I decided to give it a try,despite a few negative reviews. This metal console was perfect! It was a good size without taking up a lot of visual space. It arrived quiclkly, wasn't hard to put together, i did it myself.The instructions were there, follow them as they describe,and do not tighten the screws all the way until the end as it suggest. The glass fit,and the table is sturdy. It mixes well with the other furniture in the room. If you are wondering if the glass is tempered (I was) it is. I looked at different consoles from other places and am really happy I chose this one.
