I saw many negative reviews before purchasing. I'm pretty fussy and when there have been many negative reviews I MOST ALWAYS am unsatisfied with my purchase once I get the product. Not this time! The carton the unassembled unit came in had no shipping damage unlike what some other reviewers noted. It was heavy, over 50 pounds. Everything in the box was carefully packed and protected. Once I laid out the pieces I could tell the stand would be simple to put together. You almost didn't need the instructions. As for the assembly, all the large parts were labeled as well as the smaller common parts which were in individual bags each clearly identified (A,B,C, etc.##. Pictorial instructions clearly showed how to assemble A to D and so on. My 50 inch DLP TV #bigger and heavier than a flat screen) easily fit. The stand is sturdy and has no problem supporting the weight. The black glossy finish of the stand and the silver shelf supports complimented the black and silver front of my TV. As for the "cheap plastic door" controversy from earlier reviews: Yes, they are cheap but they look and fit great once installed. They give a smoked glass appearance to the unit. By the way, I noticed one of the doors was cracked when I went to attach it. Don't know if I cracked it or it came that way. I called the vendor's number provided in the assembly instructions and had a replacement in my hands the next day. They sent it to me FEDEX overnight! That's what I call customer service. The only other problem I noticed was a small scratch on the back of one of the shelves that was covered when I put on the back of the cabinet. In summary, yes, you can find a better cabinet if you want to pay a lot more money. If what you are looking for is a stylish, expensive looking piece of furniture, this stand may not be for you. But when I consider the size, sturdiness, and appearance of what I got versus the price paid for it, it was a very good choice and value.
