This it an item where you get what you pay for. It's cheap and kind of cheap looking. I actually use it as a mobile desk for my laptop and it stores my files and peripherals beautifully. It was easy to assemble, seems sturdy enough for a tv and the color is pretty much true to the website photo. So, if you're looking for something inexpensive and you're not too picky about the look of cheap veneer - then this is probably a good buy.
