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.
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.
I was nervous about purchasing given the low price point but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the product. Shipped with no issues, all pieces were there and in good condition, and I had no issues getting the stickers off the wood. Works perfectly for a 55 inch tv but would be great for smaller tvs if you want more space. Took me about an hour to put together but honestly can probably be done faster, super simple to put together once you get a handle on the directions. Highly recommend this product if you are in need of a TV stand that is less than 21 inches in height and do not want to spend a ton.
