Just like all of the other reviews.
1.- Instructions not included. I had to call the manufacturer to get the e-mailed to me.
2.- Instructions incorrect, not detailed, hard to understand.
3.- Extra and missing parts.
4.- Parts mislabeled. Bags have letters attached to them "A-F" but are labeled incorrectly.
5.- When you put a TV over 50 lbs on it, the whole thing sags in the middle making it impossible to close the drawers once you open them.
Lucky for me I was able to figure out how to build this with minor help from the incomplete instructions.Of course this required dissembling the unit several times. After completing the project, the unit sagged in the middle once the TV was placed on it making the drawers useless. I remedied this by cutting two 2X4's in 3 foot lengths and placing them under the unit,one in front, one in back so that this supported the middle of the unit, eliminating the sagging.
Wish I would have read these reviews before I spent good money on this stand. Haven't even had it 2 months and it's bowed so much in the middle I can't get any of the drawers open. Style is exactly what I want, but when I pay over [$] for something, I expect it to be built with a lot better quality than what I received. Also, it's not even real wood, but particle board. How do you expect that kind of material to hold a 50in TV? Will be trying my best to get my money back on this one!!
I got this for very basic use, my 32" tv and some DVD's plus the DRV player. It's simple and stylish for that and looks perfect with the tv. The wood is a dark shade that looks almost black and it's sort of glossy. It has silver accents coloring. It's sturdy but not too heavy. It was very easy to ensemble and only took probably 10 minutes. It's not great for a lot of storage though but for me it's perfect.
This was, by far, the easiest piece of furniture I have ever put together. I almost wish I would have made my son do it by himself as an intro to "Putting Cheap Furniture Together When You're a Broke Adult 101". And no, this can't hold anything too heavy (which it clearly states). He has his 28" flat screen on the top shelf, his XBox360 on the middle shelf, and all his games and movies on the bottom. It's PERFECT.
This TV stand is perfect. It has given me so much extra space in the bedroom. So easy to put together. My 10 & 14 year old nephews did it for me in no time. My flat screen fits perfectly on top. Plenty of room on lower shelves for cable box, dvd player, nick nacks etc. Couldn't be happier with my purchase!
I was hesitating at first when I got an offer with the desk, but I ordered it, and I am really glad I did so. This TV stand fits great in my living room, and it's a really nice, modern design.
I am very satisfied with the purchase.
I purchased this on 9/30/12 it arrived [...]. It is lightweight so if you live in apt. it's easy to get upstairs. This stand is just as well built & the quality just as good as any stand that costs much more money. Easy to build, directions are easy to read. in the 2nd picture it appears the doors are clear they are not, they are plastic which sounds cheap but they are very sturdy plastic & look nice when all done. DO NOT pass this up great price, great quality for the money.
