I love this entertainment unit. The unit is quite hefty, so it does not feel cheap at all. It is well-designed and was fairly easy to assemble, with the help of my three-year-old. It is made of laminate/fiberboard, but I did not expect real hardwood for this price. Nearly every aspect of this TV stand met or exceeded my expectations, with the exception of the shelf space. The shelves themselves are nice and heavily constructed, however, they are not very versatile. Gaming systems and cable boxes can pretty much only go in the center storage area, and the sides are pretty much only designed to hold DVDs/Blu-rays. Its not a huge issue, but it does not allow for really making the area your own. Overall, I did definitely recommend to anyone considering this purchase.
The only reason I gave it four stars is because we had to drill more cord holes in the back; it comes with several cord holes but we have a LOT of cords due to the many components we have. We also had to “cut” more of the backing from the bottom middle shelf to accommodate our huge Onkyo receiver (the Onkyo is about 11 inches front to back + cords behind it). This is a pic with a 55” TV. I really love the look and sturdiness. I also like how the bottom is fully closed (it sits flush to the floor, no openings for dust, etc. to get underneath the unit). It came with instructions and took about an hour with two people assembling. Easy to follow instructions. The longest part of the assembly for us was the transferring of all our components and the sorting of cords. The barn doors mount and slide perfectly.
Matches my flooring really nicely, great size and I like that it is open so you do not need to drill holes for cords or anything. It does not hold my TV, my TV is wall mounted. This just holds my equipment attached to my TV, but I think it is sturdy enough to hold any TV. I was nervous about all the sticker reviews, but mine came off easily so do not let that deter you from buying. People mentioned ripping the finish off with the stickers in some reviews. Well let is be clear, there is no real finish. This is in no way shape or form a wood vernier it is a vinyl like sticker of a nice oak wood pattern and in a gray/brown color. Some may think is cheap, but for the price it does look good!
