This TV stand is very well made, sturdy, and easy to put together without help. My friends were surprised to find out it was "assemble yourself" furniture and not something more expensive. It was the only affordable option I could find that had enough space inside the cabinet for my receiver (Yamaha RX-V377).
The back attaches in 3 sections (1 over each compartment), so I left off the middle section to provide additional airflow to my devices; it does not seem to be necessary for the structural integrity of the stand. I plan on leaving the doors closed since my toddler loves to play with all the electronics. If I find I need more airflow, it looks like the glass is easy to remove to replace with perforated metal.
I use a Logitech Harmony Hub with IR blasters for controlling my devices; I keep the hub on the bottom shelf close to the door, and it has no problem reaching the receiver on the top shelf. I use an IR blaster to reach the TV.
The only reason I am docking a star is because the cherry finish is much redder than in the product picture. I think it clashes a bit with my wall color and other furniture, but it's not too bad. It is a nice color on its own, just not what I was expecting. Perhaps it will darken over time.
