The entertainment center is overall a great quality. Assembly was difficult due to poor instructions and diagrams, so pay attention to details! The pictures do show orientation of components however they can be musleading. The sliding doors work great. There are magnets inside that help lock them in center or edge so.they do notdrift. This unit is particle board/composite, however it is pretty durable. The panels are very thick and we will designed. Upon delivery, I did notice the base had a crack. I do not believe this is a defective in quality, but poor shipper treatment. The packaging was well packages from manufacterer so that is not an issue. Due to it is weight I suggest inspecting the box for damage upon arrival, and having a second hand to move it!
I did not seem to get instructions so assembly was a pretty painful process. After fumbling around with it for a while I managed to get it together and it is very sturdy and pretty pleasing to look at. The finish does chip fairly easily and I managed to scratch it up during my somewhat bumbling assembly process but it did not end up being visible.
This product looks really nice once assembled, but if you’re expected super high quality, look elsewhere and be willing to spend more money. My husband started the assembly with a manual screwdriver. I do not recommend that. Power tools help immensely. The unit was pretty unstable feeling until we screwed the back on. The back does not have predrilled holes to screw into, so you’re screwing directly into the unit with very little guidance. Now that it’s assembled, it looks higher quality than what it is. The top is very sturdy and appears solid. The rest seems like an MDF. The back board is pretty flimsy but gets the job done. It’s perfect for our 55 inch tv to stand on. It’s a good viewing height as well.
