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.
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!
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.
