When I got the box home and opened it there were no broken parts and nothing was missing. For the cost, the value of this product is tremendous. As with many people who purchased this item, the assembly time was about an hour and a half by myself. The quality of the wood is obviously not the best, but it is definitely at a high enough quality that it looks extremely nice in a room. It looks and feels like it is a higher quality item than the price suggests. Even under close scrutiny I can find no flaws with the build quality. I am very happy I purchased this entertainment center. Now, on to the actual product specs and description: 1) There is a lip that runs down the left and right sides and across the top that is 2'' wide. My Panasonic 42'' plasma fits perfectly in the space with plenty of room to spare. Including the lip on each side, the gap of the opening measures 49.25'' from edge to edge. Behind the lip, where the TV actually hangs on the bracket, the gap measures 52.25''. You should be able to squeeze a 55'' TV in there. 2) The depth of the cabinets and shelves is 18.5'' which would fit any standard piece of audio/video equipment, a gaming system, blu-ray's, etc. The insides of the two cabinets are 13.25'' wide. The middle shelf openings are 23'' wide and the shelf heights are adjustable. I was able to fit my Pioneer Elite receiver, cable box and wireless router in the middle and my 10'' Paradigm subwoofer in the right cabinet with the door off. 3) The shelf under the TV is 20'' deep and 54.5'' wide, plenty of space for a center channel speaker or a couple gaming systems. 4) The bracket that holds the TV is very easy to install and hang. It supports my heavy 42'' plasma so it should hold any LED or LCD TV. The bracket is mounted to two wooden posts and it is definitely sturdy, although when you are installing it, it may not seem like it! 5) I had to drill holes in the dividers between the cabinets and the middle opening in order to get wires to my receiver but that was easy and shouldn't be too hard for most. 6) The holes in the back for cable management are adequate, nothing earth-shattering to note there. 7) The wood is a really dark brown but you can tell that it is definitely brown, not black. For the money, this entertainment center is totally worth it. Looks great, even greater price.
