Ok, once itis all put together its nice. You cant use power tools to put it together. It takes forever and my hand feels like it is going to fall off. I followed the directions and the top two shelves on either side seem as if the holes drilled for the pegs for the shelves are not exactly level with each other..... Not terribly noticeable at a glance but since I put it together I noticed. It easily took me three hours alone to put it together. It is particle board hence why the no use of power tools. I tried and it made me start to rethink all of my life decision up to that very moment. Plan for a good chunk of time for assembly if you are alone. This was also the second piece of furniture of the night after work that I decided to put together so that may be why it took me so long. It is pretty esthetically.
This unit is very easy to assemble, I only had difficulty with one part (and that is saying a lot since I am a 60 year old female who is not very strong physically) - the last step of assembly is to screw some very long screws into 8 holes to attach the bottom of the shelf. Those screws were blunt bottom, not sharp, and they would not screw in no matter what I tried, even when I tried starting the hole with a big nail. After five minutes, I gave up and just used nails in place of the screws.
I love my tv stand, however, I am using it to hold smaller electronics such as an xbox, controller etc. I had the tv mounted and this stand looks perfect underneath it. It does sit low to the ground even with the legs attached so if you are looking for height, this is not it. It is perfect for a game room or smaller living space if you are trying to steer clear of bulkiness.
