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.
Let me tell you now...this is by far THE BEST purchase I have even made on Amazon. I was overwhelmed at first that I would have to put this monster together but with the easy numbered diagram instructions and the little baggies holding each type of part with numbered stickers on everything it was super easy! It took me 2 hrs because I was doing it alone but man this thing is sturdy and of great quality! I truly love it and for the price it was well worth it.
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!
