This stand is just what we were looking for. The description doesn't say how big of a TV will fit on it so I was nervous. No need though. The specs that come with the directions say it can hold up to a 40 in 80lb flat screen TV which worked out perfect for our 36 in. Shipping was super fast. Assembly wasn't to hard. No plywood or cardboard, all solid pieces of wood. Very pleased.

Great dresser! but wheels on drawers could be better
Quality is great! Color is excellent!! Size is good ,design excellent.
Only thing that could be a lot better is how well the drawers move in and out...but a good buy. would think twice to buy again though because of the drawer issue.
Extremely difficult to put together! Glue comes in the package so you can glue together the pressed wood!! Spent hours putting this together and had my husband inspect, but drawers still do not open properly. They get stuck and you have to yank on the drawers to open. I'm surprised Target carries this low quality junk. Just overall bad China quality.
The style is cute and from a distance it looks ok, but it is the worst-designed piece of diy furniture ever. The frame & drawer fronts are wood. The back & drawer bottoms are thin plywood/particle board. The 'chest' itself is sturdy. The drawers are a JOKE! The drawer fronts do not touch the chest frame but just sit there with about a 1/4- 1/2 inch gap on all 4 sides. What looked like shadows in the photo are actually gaps. There are actually instructions on how to 'line up' the drawer fronts for consistent gaps which took longer than the rest of the assembly. We got it on sale for [$]. I don't understand why the maker can't just make all drawer fronts 1/2" wider all the way around & have them close against the frame. Will be find our rarely used guest room, but there is no way that this drawer construction could hold up to daily use. I would not purchase this again. [..]
There were other reviews on this that don't appear to be showing up anymore. They all seemed to be the same that they had trouble putting it together so I knew what I was getting into. I will say that at full price this piece is not worth it, but I bought it on sale and at that price I would say I'm happy w/ my purchase. I personally had no issues at all putting this together and I'm a 37 year old SAHM. I just took my time. My only issue was w/ the drawers. The assembly left the drawer fronts a bit flimsy & I thought that when the drawers where loaded that the fronts may just pull away, so I used wood glue and I''m confident they will hold up. Also, the screws that go into the rail on the side in the final step stuck up too far & wouldn't allow the drawer to push all the way closed smoothly. The screw doesn't actually physically attached the rail to the drawer, it just keeps it from sliding out too far, so I left the screws out until I can find a screw w/ a shorter head.
I am a non-mechanically inclined female and I figured out how to put this dresser together. It took many hours, but I got this dresser on sale knowing that assembly could be a problem based on other reviews. If you have the money to go to a furniture store and spend triple, then do it. If not, don't be afraid of it. The cam bolt system is not rocket science - just turn it until it won't turn anymore once you get to that step in the directions, ignore the 2 o'clock visual. If you're putting it together that will make sense. All in all, it looks cute and I will be using it as a changing table in our nursery and have some bonus room for storage, but do not expect high quality or to pass this piece of furniture to your children.
I didn't read the reviews until after I bought the dresser and I wish I would have. I am an expert at putting together furniture and this took me about 4 hours to put together. I haven't put anything in it yet, so I am not sure how it will hold up in the future. I bought two of them, one for each daughter. But with the amount of time it took me to put it together, I am contemplating returning the other one because I can't be bothered to put another one together. Luckily I bought them on sale.
I am curious to see what the other reviews were like...
