Came well-packaged, with no damage or missing parts whatsoever. The color is true to the image, a nice wood-grain grey.
It's not real wood, and anyone with any sort of experience with pressed wood product versus natural wood will be able to tell immediately, but looks and feels significantly more solid than most similar products and doesn't have any peeling/uneven finish/warping as can be common with pressed wood products. It does not give you that "ugh, obviously cheap" feel that so many pressed wood products can, if you know what I mean? There's no shiny/almost plastic-y finish here.
It was extremely easy to put together, took me maybe 45 minutes on my own, and will probably be much faster for someone without a working memory disorder like myself! The instructions were clear and concise, all parts were labeled, and everything fit together snugly and easily. It is extremely solid and easy to move, there was no creaking, it's very stable. I think this would be able to survive several moves as long as you weren't extra rough with it or anything; it seems much more solid than my Ikea desk, for example.
I am very impressed. I prefer actual wood furniture when possible, but we all know that in this price range that requires a lot of luck, and weathered grey stain real wood furniture seems rare. I will be purchasing more from the Monarch Dark Taupe collection for my bedroom once I narrow it down to which piece I want!
Luv this tv console for my 55" tv.
Everyone that comes into our home have to say something about this entertainment center, they love it. So do we.
We have had this for 2 years now. We used it with a 50” UHDTV and then upgraded to a 65”. I believe the new UHDTV only fits because the “legs” are in the middle (see pictures). Sadly it doesn’t have any cable management system. I just put two screws on the back and attached a 12 socket Belkin surge protector, not the cleanest cable management but as long as I don’t see the cables from my sofa I’m ok.
Easy to assemble and it’s very sturdy. The drawer is ok size, can fit a couple discs. I just use it to store some cables and microfiber cloths for the TV screen.
The item was received in excellent condition. They bubble wrapped the entire box exterior. Pretty impressive and effective. I'm an older F and I assembled this myself. Taking my time to ensure no mistakes :) it took about three hours. Instructions were spot on. Nice clean looking stand...The only drawback, but I'll figure out a camouflage -- is the open back does leave cords exposed. 100% happy with my purchase!!!
