Surprisingly Sturdy and easy to Assemble TV Stand!!
on October 19, 2014
This shelf is honestly, perfect, I expected the shelf to have some assembly issue or missing parts given some of the reviews that I had read, however this was not the case. I am extremely satisfied with the shelf. It took longer than I imagined it would to setup the shelf, but it was well worth it. The color is exactly as in the pictured description, and sturdy which was the second most important part of purchasing the tv stand. I decided to use the shelf laying flat rather than having the shelf stand upright, which is an option if one would like. My shelf looks exactly like it does in the picture, and I will post my own pictures to verify this claim. The only issues I have with the tv stand is that it chips relatively easy if you are not careful, which I think is due to some cheap paint used in coloring the shelf itself. This is a shame as the color is the best part!!..., but perhaps I can buy some varnish and preserve the color from chipping. I don't see chipping a big issue to be honest since I won't be walking past the tv stand or really making much contact with it other than my dvd/blurays that I have shelved. I am extremely satisfied with this product, and if you are not sure whether to purchase this shelf, please ask questions about the shelf and I will try to get an answer as soon as amazon notifies me of your question!...., Pictures will be posted of the assembly and final assembly. **Note that the wood used for the shelves are actually strong durable wood. These are not "Ikea" like shelves where they're sorta strong but still flimsy....., If only the paint was as strong as the wood!
addendum** .....for one reason or another, AMZN or the seller doesn't allow for pictures to be posted unforunately :(
1/15/2015 Update, after having used the tv stand for a few months now, the Tv stand has remained durable and still very happy with the stand.
I have noticed that when I had initially purchased the tv stand, it was "supposedly the last" one available, but I noticed after the purchase, there were 2 more tv stands promptly available. Thus I doubt that the availability is limited and that there may or may not be a warehouse full of these tv stands lying around somewhere.
But It's more valuable if they are "rare and hard to come by" from a marketing standpoint.
