This unit is very easy to assemble, I only had difficulty with one part (and that is saying a lot since I am a 60 year old female who is not very strong physically) - the last step of assembly is to screw some very long screws into 8 holes to attach the bottom of the shelf. Those screws were blunt bottom, not sharp, and they would not screw in no matter what I tried, even when I tried starting the hole with a big nail. After five minutes, I gave up and just used nails in place of the screws.
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.
I am not good at constructing things so this took me a good amount of time. Not all the holes lined up which was really freaking frustrating, but I was able to use my screwdriver to carve them and make them bigger holes. This item was a little bit shaky but then I realized I hadn’t screwed everything up properly so I had to go back and redo things, now it is pretty sturdy, but not excellent Lisa.

This item was a little bit shaky but then I realize I hadn’t screwed everything in properly so I had to go back and redo things, now it is pretty sturdy, but not excellently so. It looks really nice when it is finished! It is able to hold a 32 inch TV, a PlayStation 4, a week, and a ton of games and movies - including heavy boxed collectibles - with no issue. It looks like real wood at a glance, and has a classy vibe. If you’re doubting - get it! Just know it’ll be a little work.
