Sturdy, attractive, easy to assemble, inexpensive considering the quality of the product. Need I say more?
Instructions were tough and it was missing two pieces of hardware but I got it together and it looks great. Very sturdy.
This item was exactly as described, and is very sturdy! Added bonus was that it's exceptionally easy to install! I opted to not install the backplate and it looks great without it.
This TV stand worked out perfectly for our needs. It arrived well-packed, it's sturdy, the quality is nice and it looks terrific (love the black tempered glass shelves). At a cost of less than $100 it was a steal. We are *very* pleased with this purchase.
Note: Assembly is easier with two people and patience is a must. We had a problem with one screw... the pem nut was defective and had to be straightened.
This stand is very easy to put together. The directions are only pictures with no close-ups of any. A few suggestions: 1) there are plastic washers with a lip for the round post pieces. Be sure to install the post inside the lip of the washer, 2) be sure to install the shelves right side (shiny side) up. But no tools are needed to build it, except for the panel that hides the cables. An hex wrench is included for installing it.
The only problem is that the screw holes for the metal piece that hides the cords (the wide piece with the holes in the picture) do not line up. Only 2 screws of the four can be installed. This is not a huge issue as it is only cosmetic. This is the reason for 4 stars instead of 5.
