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.
