The good and the bad...
on June 4, 2015
It came one day ahead of the estimated arrival. It came in ONE box, about 50lbs, and I got it upstairs in my apartment without difficulty. All the parts were accounted for. All the parts were in separate packages for protection and easy sorting before assembling. The tempered glass is nice and shiny, goes with just about any theme in a household. Only took about an hour to get it together. It's a corner unit, but it doesn't have to be placed in a corner to look nice.
It's short. PLEASE MEASURE before purchasing. I will probably be purchasing some risers so I get another 6" off the ground IF I choose to keep the stand. There is NO ROOM between my 42" (and I had my tv on the top bolt) and the first shelf to store anything and the bottom shelf will only house my Xbox and controllers, so I have to find another place for my other consoles/electronics... There was some frustration with the directions because there are no written ones, just visual. The parts are NOT labeled with stickers, but there is a page on the direction sheet that labels everything with images of the parts; however, there are a lot of parts that look the same so I was switching parts here and there and doing things backwards. After an hour, I had it set up and mounted my 42" Viore television (of which is about 5 years old now). The 42" tv is wider than the television stand, so it looks a little silly. Then, after a minute of having it on the stand, the top screw on the stand FLEW off. LUCKILY I was standing there to catch my television without injury. I set the tv down onto the glass and had to walk away from it. I will try it again today and hopefully with a little tightening that will fix the problem. If not, I will be calling for a full refund and to be reimbursed for any damages to my electronics this product makes...
