This entertainment center arrived within 5 days of ordering. It was well-packaged and there was no damage to any of the pieces. The instructions were easy to follow, so the unit went together easily. It took my husband and I about 1 1/2 hours to assemble it. The only problem that we encountered was the fact that the opening in the back of the unit for the cables did not extent high enough to provide access to the top center shelf. This issue was easily solved by drilling an additional 2" hole though the back panel. The color was a bit different than we had expected. The antique white color has a definite green cast to it. In our case this did not present a problem. However, other buyers should be aware of this when ordering. Overall, we are very pleased with our purchase, and feel that this entertainment center was a great buy.
