Thanks to all the other helpful reviews, this product was as expected. It took us a while to put together, but the instructions were extremely clear. The product is particle board with wood veneer (and vinyl veneer for the edgebanding). Yes, it is totally cheap but it feels sturdy, and looks good considering the price! I don't expect it to last forever... however I'm happy with my purchase because I saved money but still got a perfectly good stand which fits all our components AND allows for hidden storage behind the doors. Yay! See pics for view of how it looks with our new Samsung 46" TV. We still have to put our DVD player on the bottom shelf - but you can see there's plenty of room for everything we have (amp/receiver, cable box, dvd player, Wii). The Wii will have to lay flat rather than stand up, though. I will hide the drumsticks, remotes, DJ Hero turntable and other stuff behind a door. We'll tidy up the wires once everything is in. By the way, packaging says this stand allows up to a 50" TV or 95 lbs. I think our 46" TV looks good because it is slightly less width than the stand itself.
