After mounting the back plane of this product it provided a more solid feel. I will say that I would not recommend moving this product often as this would probably weaken the integrity (plus it is very heavy and not easy to move especially on carpet). As stated before the pieces are very solid individually and unit looks very nice once assembled. I have upgraded my previous review from 1 star to 4 star since resolving the sturdy issues that I was having. Product was received 1 day early than expected and all pieces were in 100% condition. This took me about 2 hours to assemble by myself and really looks great after it is all assembled. I will agree with other reviews that the packaging was a bit of annoying with the Styrofoam pieces sticking to the pieces and took a while for clean up after being built but overall I have decided to keep product and I am satisfied.
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.
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.
