After doing tons of research and shopping around I knew I wanted a stand that could fit up to a 60 inch tv so that when we upgrade it will have somewhere it will fit. I saw one on Walmart.com for around 300 dollars but all the reviews said it was coming in damaged. It sounded like a nightmare I didn't want. I was looking for good quality, good price and good materials. This one was a little more than I wanted to pay but was so worth it. It is not all hard wood like I expected, the doors are and so is the top piece that holds the tv. The rest is compressed wood. Its staind gorgeous and the packaging was incredible. No problems, no dings or scratches. It is very heavy, I had to help ups unload it as he just couldn't. It was easy to put together had extra parts included if you lose one. All in all this is an excellent piece that I recommend to anyone wanting a great product at a reasonable price.
