Rated 5 out of 5 by BreakFree Grateful no broken glass!
I bought this before there were any reviews. It was shipped directly to my house, and all the pieces were together, no broken glass or anything. I think it looks amazing! I love it and it fits my 55" tv very nicely. I would still recommend buying this, even with the broken glass risk. Well worth it. Hope this helps!
Rated 5 out of 5 by CaptainWasabi Just what we needed, and not $900
This is a great stand for a large screen TV if you can't mount the TV to the wall. Just what we needed. I'm very satisfied with this, and especially the price. What my wife had picked out from IKEA was $900, and she is very happy with this.
Rated 5 out of 5 by eccntrc Very nice tv stand
Despite the reviews of customers receiving this item with shattered glass, I tried my luck ordering this tv stand and I am so glad I did. I picked it up from walmart. Huge, heavy box. Got it home and, voila! Nothing was broken or shattered. The picture of this stand does not give it justice. It is much larger than it looked in the picture which I am tickled about. My 55 inch tv looks great on this stand, and I love that it can swivel left to right to make viewing easier, no matter where in the room we are sitting. Can't beat the price! Would deff recommend.
Rated 1 out of 5 by packerbackers Damaged Product, 2 times
I received this product with the main glass shelf shattered, twice, just as the other people have commented on here. I can't believe that they would package this the way it is! A 5 year old could figure out the glass is bound to break when it is found at the bottom of a 170# package with no support around it. The stand itself seemed like it would be good quality, and I like the looks of it. But, I am not going to give it a 3rd try, as I would assume the next one would arrive broken as well. Walmart.com was easy to work with regarding returns, and the customer service was very good regardless of the difficulties I had.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Hoggie52 Dis-appointed in the quality
Assembly was fine, material quality was poor.
I expected particle-board, but I did not expect the veneer to be such low grade.
Not only were a lot of the edges and corners chipped, but there were areas where there wasn't enough glue applied and there were visible bubbles between the veneer and the substrate.
As fas ar the touch-up enclosed... (the color doesn't match the veneer).
Oh, by the way... the glass was slightly warped... which made the stainless stand-offs sit away from the cabinet.
The drawer guides were pre-installed, but one drawer was mis-aligned. easy fix by relocating 2 screws... but I shouldn't have to be doing this at all.
Would I buy this again or recommend it? Not really.
When I move, this thing will staying here. It's not a product I'm proud of showing off.
Rated 4 out of 5 by chorusofx I was a little nervous about reviewing all of the reviews with the problems with the broken glass and what not. I decided to go ahead and give it a shot. I got the piece and it there was no broken glass. The drawers were not as hard to put together as some had made it seem. For that matter, the entire stand wasn't too bad. HOWEVER, getting the drawers to slide in to the stand was NOT easy! The right one did not want to go in at all ... no matter how many times I took it out and tried again. The cam locks for the top glass shelf did not tighten all the way, so that glass isn't completely secure. When I went to mount my tv, the screws that were provided were not the right size. I had to buy new screws in order to get the tv mounted. Now that it is all together, it is a beautiful addition to my living room. I really am very happy with it, despite the fact that it was kind of a pain. It has much more space than I expected it to, and my tv looks great on it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by wichitashopper2 Don't buy this!
I ordered this before all the negative reviews were posted about the glass being shattered. I was crossing my fingers that mine would be in one piece. Before I left the store I made the associates open it up to make sure that it was in one piece. The box was way to big and heavy to move it home just to have to return it. Upon opening it the glass was at the bottom of the box and it a million pieces! I was so heartbroken! I have been looking for an affordable and nice looking tv stand for almost a year. I was in love with this tv stand. I have decided not to order another one after hearing reviews that people have received even a 2nd one broken. I will look elsewhere.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KansasBroncofan This TV stand was so easy to put together.
Received this TV stand at Walmart...was worried about something inside the box being damaged...box was in bad shape...after opening the box and inspecting all the parts (they were all there) everything was in great shape...building the stand was a snap after watching the on-line demonstrations...it was easier to build the stand watching the step by step demos on the internet...looks great in our living room with our 55" LG attached to the spine...it is a great looking stand for the money spent (only $175.00)...can't beat a deal like that!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by HardToPleez High quality, low price
It's made with thick HEAVY wood; the directions make it fairly easy to assemble if you have an electric screw driver, a couple free hours, & a good friend; & it looks great when completed.
They also provided a bit more than you need to put it together i.e. wood glue, finish touch up marker, & bracket mounting bolts in case you misplaced the ones that may or may not have came with your TV. This could easily support a 60" TV on the stand, but I would only recommend a 55" because that's about the same size width-wise.
The packaging wasn't well thought out though, they placed the glass top on the bottom of the box with all the weight on it. Good news is the glass is near a half inch thick, but I would not have packed it like that.
The drawers, however, were not made to have much weight in them, the bottom of them is basically cardboard. The glass shelves are about a 1/4 inch thick, and can be mounted in 1 of 3 heights on each side which should be good enough for whatever electronic devices you plan to put in it.
All in all I am very pleased with my purchase at $175.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnGK Great Value!
Great stand! Ordered it online with the site to store ship. Was able to pick it up 7
days from the day I ordered it. It arrived all intact. No shattered glass or damage.
Assembled it by myself in about 3 hours. The instructions are good
and everything is labeled. Would definitely recommend watching the video
instruction guide on the manufacture site before starting and during assembly.
Was very helpful along with the written instructions. Looks great and is very
sturdy and good quality for the $$!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by BrownieNSkinnie We found this online and tried to visit the store to see it in person but no Walmart had it in store anymore. We had just gotten our 55'' Flat Screen TV and needed a new stand for it. We are so glad we decided to be patient and order this one because we absolutely love it. We wanted a stand that wasn't low, which most are, and had more than 2 shelves, this one has 4 shelves and 2 draws (a bonus). It's the perfect width and height for our TV. It's beautiful, the quality is very good and the price was great. Other sites and stores for smething similar was starting at $400. We are very happy with the stand. It was very easy to put together also.
Rated 1 out of 5 by hawkjay Glass Shattered Twice Also
Both items we received had the glass shelf in a million pieces. They package this glass with absolutely no cushion around it, and on the very bottom of the box. I don't see how any of them could NOT have the glass broken.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 2Banditos Nice TV Stand/cabinet
Very nice product, beautiful piece of furniture, helpful video online for putting it together. Needs typo correction for size of TV to mount on their vertical post - a 42" LCD/LED can use the normal attachment without the extra wall mount support attachment.
Rated 1 out of 5 by HappyinWY Waste of Time..
After waiting for this TV stand for well over three weeks, we FINALLY received it through site to store shipping.. We went to pick it up at the store got it home and had to carry it piece by piece up our stairs because it was way to heavy for my fiance and I to carry up. When we got to the bottom of the box, lone behold the glass was shattered. We mistakenly didn't read reviews before we purchased. I would NOT risk the wait and money on this stand. We returned to the store and got one that was in-store.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sabotage13 Not what I expected, other reveiws were good about it except for the glass top. I had to drill holes and counter bores on one of the shelves for the locking pieces and dowels, went together fairly rough, not aligned very well, but at least the glass was'nt broke! If it was'nt for the wife wanting to keep it, I would of sent it back. Not worth the trouble, poor workmanship even for it's price.....
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chewels Had the product delivered to the store after reading reviews of home delivery. The product was not broken in any way. Good product. Took a while to put together. Definitely need more than one person to put it together. For a small room it is perfect, does not take up to much room and looks great.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TJSEC Solid TV stand, well built.
Ordered this site to store, took a week to come in. Everything was intact, no broken glass or missing parts. I was able to assemble this unit myself in 2 hours & get everything in place in under 3 hours.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Knight14 Great TV stand for 50 inch flat screen
This TV stand looks great and is a good value for the money. It looks more expensive than it really is.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1loveSebbyandSlayton exactly what we needed, and BEAUTIFUL!!!
It is sooo hard to find a tv stand with a MOUNT for a tv 50" and up. When you do finally find what you're looking for they're typically crazyyy expensive- not to mention the cost of shipping!!! So glad we found this at Walmart for under $200, with free shipping site-to-store. They say it takes two weeks to arrive for pickup, we had it before the first week was up. It's a beautiful and suprisingly sturdy piece of furniture, we got it so two kids under the age of 4 wouldn't be able to touch and/or knock the tv to the ground. The added bonus is the finish is gorgeous, and the swinging mount is an awesome feature as well. I've already recommended it to friends!!!
ps it was sooooo nice to have EXTRA pieces in case you happen to lose a screw!! recently bought another piece of furniture from walmart that had the bare minimum of what you need and the quality wasn't even close to this good.
WE LOVE OUR NEW TV STAND!!!!!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Allieboo I bought this entertainment center because my husband and I recently upgraded to a 55" t.v. The center looks great in our living room and really makes the t.v. look great too. I was a little worried from a few of the reviews, saying they received it with broken glass. That was the first thing I checked about it before I even left the store. I was fortunate enough to not have any broken glass. The center did take a little while to put together but my family all think that it was worth it, because it really is a beautiful piece. We had a little bit of trouble installing one of the drawers but after about 5 minutes of messing around with it we got it to work correctly.
I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice looking entertainment center that doesn't want to spend an insane amount of money. For $175 dollars, it's the perfect center for me.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JandA0711 Very impressed
We absolutely love this stand! Glass was in perfect shape and having drawers and glass shelves look really good. It takes awhile to put together and does take two people to assemble. The company gives you a wide variety of screws to mount your t.v. For the price it is a wonderful buy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by photo219 We worried about broken glass but we were lucky enough everything was intact. Once put together, looks great and funtional. Takes awile to put together but totally worth it. Looks great in our livingroom.
Rated 1 out of 5 by dbca Why?
Apparently like many others who bought this product, it arrived broken. Glass shelf was totally smashed with glass pieces falling out of the box on the floor.
Why is this product continuing to be sold with this problem?
Since it is huge it is a big hassle to return.
Seemed like it would have been a nice product, but with the hassle involved I don't dare try it again
Rated 1 out of 5 by phillieswin2011 TOTAL WASTE OF TIME!!!!!!!
THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT STAND AT AN AMAZING PRICE IF IT WOULD HAVE BEEN PACKAGED BETTER! ALL OF THE GLASS WAS COMPLETELY SHATTERED! I CALLED THE MANUFACTURER DIRECTLY AND WAS TOLD THAT THEY CANT REPLACE THE GLASS FOR THIS MODEL FOR 10-12 WEEKS SO THIS PRODUCT IS USELESS! JUDGING ON PACKAGING ALONE I DON'T SEE ANYONE RECEIVING THIS PRODUCT UNBROKEN!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Rideout83 Nice if it didn't come shattered...TWICE
So I searched around forever looking for a nice looking TV stand that would accommodate a dvd player, cable box, XBOX 360 and a Kinect. This tv stand seemed to be perfect. Well, it arrived and I opened it....the top shelf that is all glass was shattered into hundreds of pieces. I called Walmart and they issued a replacement. That was fine, but I was disappointed that I had to hang on to the old stand and wait for the new stand to arrive, than call Walmart back to have a service tag sent out to have the old one picked up. These boxes are not small and was a major inconvenience to have it just sittng around taking up space, especially around Christmas. Finally, today Jan 10, 2011...a month after my initial order was placed, my replacement arrived. This one was shattered WORSE THAN THE FIRST ONE!!!!!! Now I have 2 broken TV stands in 5 feet long boxes taking up room in my living room and I have to wait another 2 weeks for someone to come pick up the two, 200lb boxes. What a disappointment. I ended up calling Walmart back and just wanted a refund. Now the search continues for a new stand once again, and it will NOT be from Walmart.com and I would NOT recommend anyone ordering this just because it will most likely come in thousands of shattered glass pieces. If it would have came in tack, I'm sure it would have been beautiful but now will never know, what a shame.
Rated 4 out of 5 by pakratt840 Hooray! No Broken Glass!
OK, I was worried foremost about the broken glass issue mentioned in other reviews, but even though the carton was a little beat up when I picked it up, and there was a large tear on the bottom, nothing inside was damaged. Didn't see the tear until I had it home and completely unpacked, either. And as others have said, this thing is HEAVY! 170lbs.+
I put this together myself, over the coarse of an evening and the following afternnon. I took my time and tried to check fit everything before I glued. My first complaint is a minor one. I don't think enough glue is provided. I was squeezing that tube for all it was worth at the halfway point. Had to go buy some to finish. As for the instructions, they're pretty straight forward, although a couple of places you have to kind of interpret a bit because they forgot to illustrate or describe an obvious step. The parts, including the hardware, are all plainly marked and match the diagrams, at least until you get to the mounting brackets for the TV. More on that later.
I did find 1 manufacturing defect, and I wish I had found it earlier. On the middle divider panel, where the adjustable glass shelves are fastened with clips, they forgot to drill a series of 3 holes for one of the clips. Not that big a deal, since I just went ahead and drilled them myself, but if I had seen it before assembly, they would have been easier to line up and measure. Another thing to watch for is when you're attaching the glass top, the "cam locks" that secure the top to the support pieces are countersunk(?) into the pre-drilled holes. If you don't get them in to the right depth, they wont lock onto the "cam shafts" and secure the top. Ah, the drawers. I did have some difficulty getting them lined up, but I didn't have to re-do anything. They're just a little stiff, which may get better over time. I do wholeheatedly agree that the bottom panels are too flimsy. I'll fix that by putting a 1/2 inch board in, cut to fit, and nailing or screwing it fast.
On to the mounting bracket. The spine for the bracket attaches to the back of the unit and is simple to attach. The same for the brace for larger TVs. However, when you get to the straps which attach to the back of the TV, it gets confusing.
Remember when I said that the hardware was all clearly marked. This is not the case for the bolts, washers and spacers for the straps to TV. They're all separated by size, but no indication as to which are M8's, M5's, M4's, etc. The instructions indicate using a specific one for specific TV's based on flat backs, curved, or recessed. It makes no mention of TV size being a factor in which bolt is to be used. My TV user manual said to use M8's, but I could only determine that by trial and error. The instructions also directed me to use short bolts at the top of the strap and long bolts w/spacer at the bottom. This was impossible because it angles the strap to a point where the short bolt won't reach the TV back. I just went with 4 long bolts w/spacers, due to the weight of the TV being almost 50lbs.
To sum up, the assembly wasn't flawless, but the problems were not major and they were fixable with a little thought and patience. The price was right, and while the glass top and shelves wouldn't have been my preferred choice, the rest of the unit satisfies my needs, especially the swivel mount so I can turn the TV to angle to any of my living room chairs, as well as my dining room table. By the way, the photos online make it look like a dark wood like cherry or walnut, but it's black as an eight ball on a pool table.
Rated 5 out of 5 by babe05 Best tv stand ever!!!!
This tv stand is awesome!!! It holds every thing that we need it too, we have all of our game consoles and cable boxes, and were able to fit all the dvd's in the drawers! And the swivel mount is incredible!! For the price that it is, it does what it is meant to do, and does it in style! LOL and the glass was NOT broken upon arrival either! :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lilsma04 Great Product, Broken Glass
First let me start off by saying that this is the best tv stand that we've ever had. its beautiful. with that being said the instructions were in foreign languages, multiple foreign languages, no english, we just followed the drawings and pictures and luckily all the parts were labeled with A's B's and #'s, so we were able to figure it out. When we went to put the top piece of glass on the silver separator thats attached to the glass in 6 different areas, one of them had broke off during shipping apparently and it took a chunk of the bottom part of the glass out. i called the company and they assured me that they would send me out replacement glass top, but it was on back order and it could take 4-6 weeks to get the glass. Luckily the top of the glass wasn't broke, so we are using it till we get the new glass. You couldn't tell by looking at it, but if I'm paying that much for a product, nothing should be broken. By the way, i did do site to store shipping to eliminate the possibility of too rough handling shipping it to the house. Good product, just cruddy instructions and broken glass that we have to wait 4-6 weeks on.
Rated 1 out of 5 by RN1210 Came Shattered
I ordered this with ship to store and when we opened the box at home found that the large glass top shelf had shattered into a million pieces. It took over an hour just to clean this up. When I called Whalen they said it would take 10-12 weeks to ship us a replacement part because it was on backorder. We had to repack this *extremely* heavy item and return it to the store. I would not order an item with a large glass piece again that had to be shipped, it was clearly not packaged securely enough and the transport and shipping were a huge hassle (although Wal-Mart took it back with no difficulty).
Rated 1 out of 5 by ALAmely Product had scratches, took a while to assemble
Product had scratches on multiple panels and offcourse assembling on weekend and no customer service available!
it took a while to assemble and then the center panel was put in reverse so that took a while to figure out until towards the end of assembly. the drawer mechanism was also poorly designed and one drawer was still hard to open and close but I really can't wait forever to get this together! i wont buy brand again.
