From the Manufacturer
Why You Need Salamander Chameleon Audio/Video FurnitureFurniture designed for audio and video components is important because it incorporates features that improve the performance of your home theater system. Traditional furniture manufacturers do not take into consideration important aspects such as Ventilation, infrared passthrough for remote controls, and removable rear panels for component access, wire management and media storage.
The Chameleon series by Salamander Designs is a modern storage system for todays home theater. Its innovative and award-winning design provides unparalleled flexibility with the design of tailored furniture systems. A full line of refined elements and accessories allows owners to fine-tune individual systems to keep pace with their growing requirements. A delicate balance of high-quality materials gives Chameleon distinct form and function. Extruded aluminum posts provide the aesthetic and functional backbone, and the oversized hardwood shelves enhance its bold and beautiful appeal. An elegantly simple design is advanced by thoughtful details, such as optional flat-panel TV mounts, choice between caster wheels and designer cabinet feet, and easily-removable rear panels.

I would give this product 5 stars if buying accessories for the unit were not so expensive. For example, why should a tray accessory for organizing dvds and cds cost more than $125.
Would I buy this product again? Absolutely!
It comes put together for the most part. The doors are hung and the structure is there but you need to do a few things (which is actually a good thing).
The buyer first needs to put the shelves in (3, 1 behind each drawer although you could combine if you wanted). The drawers aren't held by simple little pegs you slip in a drill hole, they are a heavy piece of steel that is screwed into pots with a heavy bolt and the alan wrench provided. There are holes every couple of inches so finding a spot that works should not be difficult but one can also put them anywhere they want via a nut attachment (I didn't do that so can't comment on how well it works).
After the drawers are in you can put your components in. The beauty of this is at this point there is no top on this cabinet nor are there backs. So you have the ability to see everything from 3 sides, front, top, and back. This may not sound like a big deal but when running a million wires between receiver, cable,dvr, modem, PS3, Wii, etc. it is a HUGE benefit. You can also run cables inside from compartment to compartment without them hanging out the back.
Once you have everything installed, you can put on the backs. The backs go in on one side first and then ou have to pull in on a "tab" to get it to lock in place. I admit the first time I did this with each of the 3 pieces it wasn't the easiest thing to do. But I had to take a couple off in order to rerun a cable. Each future time was much easier so it loosened up a bit after the first time.
So now I have my shelves and the backs on. But the top is off. Well for that, all you need to do is stick on these little pads on each corner that simply prevents the top (glass) from resting directly on the structure. It's as simple as peeling and placing a sticker. Once those are on you simply put the big piece of glass on the top. It is a deep black glass that one can not see through, it's kind of like a piano black finish which happens to match my piano black speakers exceptionally well.
I mentioned the components I had above and all of that fits in only 1.5 cabinets so I have an additional 1.5 cabinets for DVD's, CD's, wii accessories, etc. There is a ton of room in this.
One thing to note, this piece is wood around the sides, very nice wood, very modern but very subdued, it all but disappears when the lights are down and the movie is on. But, since it is solid, real wood, IR remotes will not work. I also purchases the IR Repeater designed by Salamander. I won't review in depth here but it works exceptionally well and is worth the ~$100 especially since you are already paying this much for a cabinet.
The bottom line is I could not be happier with this product. I get wow's every time people see it. It is the nicest piece of furniture I have in my house and despite the cost, I Will have this for a very long time to come. You get what you pay for, and this was worth every penny.
