Great value priced TV stand
Posted by: DC23 from: Ceneral California on
This TV cabinet/stand/mount has been a great purchase. I didn't want my TV sitting on a cabinet/table nor did I want to mount the TV to the wall (I am in a rental and didn't want to bolt anything into the walls), and this 3-in-1 cabinet/stand/mount is perfect for my needs (if can be used as a stand, a wall mount, or mounted from the cabinet). The package arrived with a large gouge in the box that was likely from transit, however since the package was left on my doorstep by the shipper I was not able to inspect the package before accepting delivery. During assembly I found a damaged piece (the mounting frame). I stopped the assembly and emailed the company (Z-Line) directly (late at night) and I received an email first thing the following morning with a tracking number for a replacement part the had been shipped. Customer service already gets an A. That afternoon I continued assembly (using the damaged piece, the damaged area would be hidden behind the TV once it was mounted). As I progressed through assembly, I found another piece which was not complete (the glass shelf uses a rubber? screw that holds the glass shelf in place. Of the four glass clips, one had that little screw missing. Without it, the glass shelf would rest against the metal shelf clip. This time I called the company directly, spoke to a human and explained what was missing and she told me she'd ship out 4 new clips. I explained I only needed 1 of the screws, but she was sending out four of the complete clips. Even though I only received 2 clips, customer service was still A+.
Assembly: Irrespective of the issues above, assembly was very straightforward, albeit EXTREMELY tedious. I assembled it alone (with occasional "help" from a 2 year old) over the course of two days, maybe two hours of total time, and using a lot of floor space.
Quality: During assembly I had some concerns about the quality/sturdiness that the finished product would have. I kept reminding myself that this was a budget purchase. The similar TV cabinet/mount that I really wanted would have cost me over 4 times what I paid for this one. So I couldn't expect rock solid construction, right? As the cabinet came nearer to completion I could tell that it was becoming more and more sturdy. The finished product is well above my expectations of a "budget" cabinet. I would rate the feel of the glass doors as the only negative in the final product. The glass does rattle when opening and closing and with the absence of soft-close hinges I always get a little nervous when shutting the doors.
Look: It has the wife's approval. Is there a higher compliment?
The cabinets and shelves are spacious enough for my electronic equipment. This cabinet is heavy and only gets heavier when loaded, be sure to have it positioned as close to where you want it before putting in your equipment. This is difficult when you need to access the rear for hooking up devices.Also, with an enclosed cabinet, it can get quite hot inside. To remedy this I have purchased thermal controlled fans to install on each side to expel the heat. I have not installed these yet, so I cannot comment on how well the panels handle being cut into. Also, the TV can be mounted at three heights, unless you like to look up to watch TV, I suggest using the lowest possible position. I first put it in the middle position and it was still quite high. I had to remove the TV and bolts and readjust it. Doing this alone was not easy and is not advised. But I am stubborn.
I wasn't expecting a USB hub, didn't see that mentioned anywhere. That was a nice addition. Except for the BRIGHT blue LED light that stays constantly lit. I placed a piece of black tape over it and that dimmed it to an acceptable level. The hub can be installed inside the cabinet as well (I placed it underneath the TV) which might make the blue light a non-issue.
What I like: Price, quality for the price, no holes in my wall, A/V equipment all fits, it is wider than my TV.
What I don't like: Poor ventilation in the cabinets, non-removable backing, the blue LED light on the USB hub, the glass door construction, not easy to move when loaded with A/V equipment.
Conclusion: This is a great TV stand for the price. I know I have referred to it throughout as a budget product, but that is only a reflection of the retail price and lack of luxury options (see my don't like list) which were found on the similar unit costing $2200. I would recommend this product to anyone wanting a solid TV stand at a (relatively speaking) low price.
My long review is based on the fact that I had very little to read in terms of reviews for this product. I was skeptical buying it with so little information about this product available online. I hope this is helpful to a least one person (hopefully a few dozen!). I tried to upload a picture, but it kept giving me an error.

Quality product, great size
Posted by: Sammie2980 from: San Diego, CA on
I have been looking for a stand for awhile that has an integrated mount and doors, that is 60" or lower in length. This is extremely hard to find.
This stand was the only one i could find that met all my criteria.
1. Integrated mount
3. 6 shelves
4. 60" or less length
The build quality is actually pretty good considering price. Assembly doesn't take that long either.
One nice thing is the back panel uses screws, which is nice, most items in this price range uses nails so that was nice.
A few recommendations I have for anyone that is purchasing this is get your area staged first. I suggest unpacking it all and staging it and then clean everything off. Please note that it seems to have a reddish dye that was used on it so when you clean it you will notice some of it come off.
When you assemble it put the top glass, shelves, and doors on last where at it's final resting place. No point in putting it on first making it heavier just to move it to where you want it.
Also the holes that allow you to feed your cables through are pretty small. I have some pretty thick high quality speaker cables and trying to fit them all through that small hole on a 7.2 set up just wouldn't work. I I cut off part of the back panel at the bottom. As long as you make it clean you would never be able to tell it wasn't supposed to be like that.
The Included USB HUB is a USB 2.0 and has a Y cable for powering the unit.
Lastly since no where online is the internal dimensions listed I'll list them.
Center space Depth: 19"
Center space Width: 19" 2/16
Left/Right space Depth:19"
Left/Right space Width: 18 2/16
Keep in mind with the door closed you will have just a tad bit less space.

Stylish and functional TV stand
Posted by: ADUB from: on
You can't go wrong with this TV stand. It has a beautiful wood finish and nice black tempered glass top. In addition the the bully in tv stand with hide a way for your wires. The included stand can simply be used to mount it to your wall. The is a very convenient multiple usb charging port built in that can be used to charge remotes, gaming controllers, phones, and other devices. There are openings in the back of each of the six cabinet sections for wires. The putting together of the cabinet took about 2 hours from unboxing to tv mounting. That is quick considering I was not focused entirely on the project.
Additionally, I get nothing but compliments by all my visitors on the tv cabinet stand.
