    Nice piece for the money

    Posted

    I'd read a few reviews that said it didn't fit together very well etc. Thankfully, my experience was a bit better. Yes, it's made in China, no, it's not something that was handmade by a craftsman. But for an inexpensive TV stand, its pretty heavy duty, and looks nice. As for assembly, I didn't time myself, but it took a couple hours. I should mention I built it in a spare bedroom and not my garage workshop because the boxed unit was over 70 lbs, and I moved it upstairs with a hand truck before opening the packaging. Bottom line, it went together well, and once built its sturdy and able to handle the 32" TV I bought it for. If I had a complaint, one part was missing. There was supposed to be a small block of wood for mounting the magnetic door lock not included. I searched the box several times making sure I didn't miss it somehow. My solution was to move the metal contact plates to the bottom of the two doors, and move the magnetic locking piece to the bottom shelf as well. I had to drill a total of 4 holes for the attachment screws, but it was no big deal, and it's now complete and ready to put in our bedroom.

    Interior is 12.75 inches, front to back

    I chose this TV stand because it cost half as much as others of similar style. It arrived undamaged except for two small scratches which we filled in with a black sharpie. It was easy enough to assemble; instructions were clear except regarding the way to face the magnetic catch, which is easy to change if you get it wrong. It goes together with screws, cam bolts, and glue. It says don't use a drill, but if you can be gentle with it, use it; your wrist will thank you. I don't know how well this stand will hold up to abuse, but to sit in a corner and hold a TV? No problem. It looks nice for a cheap item. The stickers they give you to cover the screw holes didn't all stay stuck on, but they're nowhere too obvious. The problem was that the space from the back wall to the front doors is 12.75 inches and our amp, with the cords plugged into it, is 3 inches too long! I chose to build a shelf on top that the amp could sit under and the TV on. It works, it was just way more hassle than I wanted with a 9 month old around. Read the specs and make sure it's big enough for what you want in it before you buy it!

    Piece of Junk

    I researched for a nice TV stand for the brand new 48 inch TV I purchased through BestBuy, and since I have purchased many items through them before I figured this would be a good product. I had to order it on line and have it delivered to my home. Which, in the scheme of things was a good thing, however, when I attempted to get it put together, I found out it was a piece of junk. Not worth the money or the time I spent on getting it. The top won't fit on the rest of the body. I have it mostly put together and glued the dowels, so now I can't get it apart. When I tried to put the top on it, the cam's won't lock down, The wood split. The top is warped and now I have a piece of junk furniture sitting in my family room, with no way of being used. Now I am worried on how to get this thing picked up and my money back. I can't even get it in the box because it is glued. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. It's a piece of junk. I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy. I wouldn't even rate this one star, but I can't rate it anything lower.

    Well constructed, easy to assemble, but

    This is a well constructed and easy-to-assemble piece of furniture. Instructions are clear. The back on this unit is very solid, not a piece of fold out cardboard. However, there are a couple issues. First, all the shelves have doors with glass. That makes them impractical for equipment items that use a remote. Further, the shelves are about 2 inches deep, which means larger equipment such as surround sound receivers probably wont fit. An open shelf along the top would improve the situation. Still, its a solid piece of furniture at a good price. In the photo I added an extra shelf for my sound system box.A 49 inch TV is exactly the 44 inch width of the stand.

    I was skeptical at first to order because of the reviews, however I took a chance and I'm glad I did. It took me two hours to put together and although it says it required two people, I did it by myself. Everything lined up properly. The instructions were easy to follow and was simple to put together overall. When it arrived it had no damage and the packaging was great. They place two boards on the ends with foam to add extra protection during shipment. I love the handles as well because I have a child lock that works perfectly with it. We have a 38" tv so it looks great on this stand!

    Excellent surface and glass but shy 1 inch

    Got a new flat TV, needed a bigger cabinet. This shows books and TV-related boxes inside the cabinet. Except for one small detail. My BlueRay player/Theater sound box fits IF I DON"T PLUG IN CABLES. With cables plugged in the back, the doors will not close. If there was one inch more depth to the cabinet I could put the DVD/theater sound box inside the closed doors. This cabinet is excellent otherwise. I can't cut slots for the plugs because that is the back load bearing frame. Otherwise this would be a 5-star. The false-wood finish is extremely good, and the glass doors have BEVELED GLASS! Just be sure to measure your support electronics boxes if you want to take advantage of the nice cable-routing holes.

    Looks great in our living room. All parts numbered and all hardware lettered so if you organize it all its easy to put together. Only issue was there are plastic pivots that go in the top and bottom for door hinges, could not get door all the way into the bottom hinge until I removed the pivot from the top. Then it installed fine, otherwise would have rated this a 5.

    Parts missing

    After receiving the "flat pack" delivered to my front door and so heavy I had to slide the box inside, I discovered a large package of bolts was missing. I immediately emailed the company (as instructed in the booklet of instructions). After filling out a lengthy questionnaire and submitting it, I didn't receive the parts for 10 days. At this point, I'm waiting for my helper to reschedule assistance time. It'll be interesting to see how it all goes together. Should you order this item, be sure to count all of the many parts to be sure everything's there before you begin putting it all together. Also, line up a helper due to the weight of the item.

    This cabinet weighs 71 pounds and came unassembled by UPS. The package was pretty beat up and re-taped. When opened I thought I would find it all broken up, however, every part was perfect and all the hardware was there also. The TV stand took about an hour to assemble and when finished, looks very nice. We are really happy with this item as it was the only size cabined we found that would fit our space. It is the perfect height for the TV.

    It’s not the best piece of furniture. The connecting anchors that the screws go in to don’t always fit well. This causes some of the joints to be loose in this cabinet. Pros are that the unit looks good and the specifications are exactly as advertised and fits my space exactly. For the overall quality I would like this cabinet to be approx $20-30 cheaper.

    Biggest piece of junk available. Constructed of low grade, weak particle board that breaks easily and did several times during assembly. The holes for the 1/4 turn die cast zinc fasteners are too close to the edges of the weak particle board and any lateral movement during assembly breaks the hole out. This renders the whole unit useless. I ended up throwing the whole unit in the garbage and buying another brand from a competitor.

    I like my TV stand. My only complaint is that one piece on the back did not fit properly. I tried it twice and I don't think it was anything I did wrong, I think it was just misshapen. There is about a 1/8 inch wide gap on one side of 1 panel in the back. I cannot see it from the front so I don't care, but I'm giving 4 stars because of it. This TV stand is attractive, has glass doors to keep the dust out and it's not so huge that i cannot move or manage it. I'm happy with my purchase.

    The high def. picture on this TV is outstanding. I bought the White Bright and Sharp Picture for outstanding TV presentation. I also purchased the PBL Speaker surround bar with an 8" sub-woofer and when you watch a movie like Saving Pvt. Ryan, the sound plus the picture is like you are landing at Normandy....I also purch. a black corner TV stand/cabinet w/ glass front...the whole system looks very handsome........VERY HAPPY....p.s.

    Not a very good buy.

    We had a very hard time putting this together because the holes for the screws were not cut in exactly the right place on the pieces that had to be screwed together, therefore causing the construction of it to be off. One side of it fits exactly right and the other side is off. As a result, the top of it did not fit properly on one side and the door on that side did not close properly. I would not recommend this to anyone mainly for that reason. Also, some of the screws did not fit properly. They seemed to only go a little way in and then become stripped.

    I looked at TV cabinets in stores and they all seemed cheaply made and flimsy. Including some that cost a lot more. This stand arrived in a few days and looks great. It is a little bit shallow for my Phillips DVR, I had to cut holes in the back directly in line with the power cord, cable wire and HDMI cable so it would slide all of the way back and I could close the doors. Also a little more work to assemble than I thought, but it is worth it.

    Great looking TV stand and you wouldn't know it was a build it yourself item! Definitely have the Geek Squad assemble it in your home!! It took them a long time to assemble it, but they did a great job!! It was well worth the $ I paid to have them do it! The description says the stand fits up to a 48" TV, but my 50" tv fit perfectly and looks really good too! The doors open and close really good with no problems! This stand doesn't cost a lot of money, but it is a great buy!

    easy to assemble but have two people when laying on top piece. Also when opening up it has a wood grained 18x6 inch piece used as packing material on both ends of the box. It is used as packing material. It is NOT part of the assembly. Beautiful piece when finished and the glass doors have an excellent fit. Great buy. We love it. You can have it shipped to your home or to a local best buy. prefer to have shipped to home because it is kind of heavy.

    Although I love the finished product it was extremely difficult to assemble.The cams that keep it together broke when screwing them in and I had to try to buy extras at a store. The size needed was difficult to find. Also, two people were needed during assembly, one to hold it and the other to do the work. When I informed the manufacturer of the problems they did send me extra cams, but it was a little too late. I needed to get it done.

    This TV stand is attractive! It really looks like a nice piece of furniture and not just a regular stand. Very happy customer. It sits low enough to the ground to keep the TV in the perfect viewing zone too. Liked it much more than I thought I would.

    This is a nice TV stand. Generally well made. That said, there are a lot of parts so that it takes a long time and a lot of patience to assemble it correctly and the allen wrench provided did not work well. I used my own and it worked much better. Also, the little stickers that are provided to cover the exposed bolt and screw heads seem cheap but do the job.
