The Sauder Palladia Entertainment Credenza is a very rich, solid, absolutely beautiful piece of furniture. The quality and craftsmanship are excellent. The finish is dark cherry, and the molding, plinths and tinted glass doors are an added touch that really makes this piece stand out. For the price, I think it’s an unbeatable value. We use it in our family room to hold a 55” tv + home theater system and it is perfect; there is ample storage space for our components. Assembly was straightforward, although tedious- it took 2 people about 4 hours to complete. All the parts were flawless out of the box, but care must be taken to prevent any scratches/damage. I strongly recommend assembling it on a soft surface, like carpet or a blanket, and having a helper because it is heavy and there comes a time when it gets harder to maneuver by oneself. Also have some good tools at hand. Reading the directions carefully and taking your time will pay off. We are very satisfied with this purchase! :)
FYI this box is extremely heavy, but I was able to put it together all by myself - no assistance. A few things to note: *Look at all your pieces before assembling including hardware - make sure none of them have dings or scratches. A couple of mine did but I called Sauder immediately and they sent replacement pieces in 2-3 days for free under warranty.
*You will start assembling upside down so make sure piece E is on a scratch-free surface before assembling or you may have a scratched top piece once it is placed right-side up
*The doors can be tricky to put on so make sure to line them up before screwing them in so they don't scratch the bottom when they close. Follow the pictures and the manual carefully and you will surely have a beautiful end result. The color is as shown in the photos - not a red cherry and not too dark like an espresso.
It took me about 5 hours from start to finish to complete, but I am so pleased with the end result and proud of myself that I didn't need a man! Ha!
I am a 22 year old female and I put together this stand in 3.5 hours alone. It has a lot of parts and pieces. With that said, it was worth every minute. This stand is beautiful! I would definitely recommend this stand to anyone.
When completed this is a wonderful solid heavy elegant furniture piece. I have received many compliments on its appearance. However, it arrives in dozens of pieces and requires talent, tools and patience to assemble.
This TV stand is of excellen quality. It will take some patience as you put it together, but it is a beautifu addition to our family room. Love it!
Just got this unit yesterday. First of all for the price I really do not think you can get a better unit. Looks solid, rich and adds a touch of high end class at low end pricing.
Couple of things to look out for however, is our unit came with a couple of peices with edges than were slightly compressed as in the box may have been dropped. Luckily for the the part that has the issue are not visable after assymbly nor do they effect functionality. At 135lbs shipping weight, site to store you never know what could have happened. @nd thing there was about 3 small light scrateches. Small enough to not see them when veiwing from 10-12 feet away, but when you get close or if the light hits just right you know they are there. You would expect this to me 100% mint upon arrival. However with a $5 purchase from the hardward store with a stain pen (mahogony red) the scratches are all but gone.
Also this thing take hours to put together. Lots of work but if you are willing to do it, the savings pay off. Once assembled, when moving try to lift and not drag on carpet as the bottom side molding may shift slightly. easy fix, but with the l-brackets used in assymbly any pressure could shift a couple things. Again, not going to complain for a nice unit at this price.
The only reason I gave it a 4 rating was I know some may not like the 4 hours it takes from start to finish or the risk of scratches or damage in shipping. for those who want a nice piece in a budget like us, this is a great deal!
This is a very grand piece. It looks rich and is very sturdy. It was easy to put together and is an excellent choice.
I love my TV stand! The final product is better than I had hoped. My advice, READ the directions and take your time putting it together. It will take a good hour or so to do, and if possible have a helper. The stand is heavy and it gets to a point where it's harder to move and rotate by yourself.
This is a very elegant and well-designed cabinet at a very good price. It is complicated and time-consuming to assemble, but that comes with a quality cabinet, and the parts do fit precisely. However, mine was missing two critical predrilled structural holes on one side, and this could not be seen until I had the unit more than halfway assembled, so I had to measure and drill my own, which was not easy. There were also 4 cam screws missing which attach two pieces of facing, also not obvious until near the end of assembly. Fortunately, Sauder has a website where you can easily report missing parts and they will mail replacements to you ASAP, so this should not be a problem for long.
It took a couple of hours to assemble this unit, but it is well-designed and solid.
All parts were in good shape due to the protective packaging and nothing was missing.
Once assembled, the unit is solid and looks great.
The ONLY negative comment would be that the assembly hardward (screws, cams, etc.) was all mixed together in one big bag. It took half an hour just to sort it all out.
Other than that, no complaints from me.
Thank you Sauder for building a good, affordable product in the US!
this is one gorgeous piece of furniture! it took my husband several hours to put together but it was so worth the wait - not to mention the cost! we are very pleased with how expensive it looks and it is a very solid piece! the color matches our cherry table to a "T". the color is much much better in person - more brown in it than red. we had another Sauder entertainment center for more than 10 years but when we got a new LCD tv it would not work with it anymore of course so we needed something else and knew the quality of the Sauder pieces.
Brought this to up-date my old unit for flat screen TV as seen in pictures. The stand is very heavy and sturdy looks like a piece of furniture, than something you put together from a box. No worries if a piece is scratched or broken or missing a part, C.S number on instruction sheet took care of that ASAP in 2 days received the pieces very friendly. Fit's a 55" TV nicely and held all my stereo components as well nice finished too very happy with it. It took me about 3 hours to put together worth it though
This is a wonderful product. The instructions were perfect, but you really need to take it slow and read everything. There will be time you will swear they have done something wrong, but if you go back carefully over the instructions you will see they were right. The most difficult part for me were getting the doors on. It is time consuming and there are times that two people may be necessary, but I chose to put it together by myself.
It is a very nice Credenza, but be sure that your accessories will fit in the shelves. I bought a Bose Solo TV Sound System and it is too wide for the shelves. Being that it a large LED TV, I can't set the Sound System underneath the TV so finding a good place made it a little difficult.
It's a great piece of furniture for the price, even if it is composite wood.
It was nice seeing "Made in the USA"!
We purchased this TV stand online from Walmart.com after researching and reading the positive reviews. Assembly was about 2 hours; there were no missing parts. This is a great piece and has become the focal point in our basement den. It supports our 59" flat screen and has ample room for cable box/DVD player/receiver/DVDs etc. We like the cut outs at the back to organize cords and wires. This credenza looks better than its online image. We rate this 5 out of 5 for aesthetics and function.
a great piece of furniture, nothing else out there comes close for the price. To me the 'color' is dark walnut not cherry as described. Using the instructions( not the greatest) took several hours to assemble but I was in no hurry. I suggest wood glue along with the cams and screws provided. Glued partial board is 3.2x stronger than without; just in case you need to move this 110lb piece. My only suggestion would be to add bottom drawers, otherwise a great cabinet for a 38-55" tv
I LOVE IT! Everyone compliments it and can not believe it's from walmart. It looks like one big solid piece. yes it takes a long time to put together because it has a lot of parts, but its not hard. It took my husband about 2.5 hours.
Great piece of furniture. I put it together myself in about 3 hours. Looks hard to put together but is not, its just very tedious. Fits our 60 inch tv and is very sturdy.
After reading some of these reviews I was worried about putting this stand together. From the time I placed my order it was at my door within two days. First I separated all the pieces and laid them out on my floor. Then for the hardware I sorted them and placed each kind in a separate ziplock bag and labeled the bags. This turned out to be a lifesaver. It look about 2 1/2 hours to complete but it was so EASY. I had to put this together by myself because my husband is currently deployed and I had 0 problems. The end result was a beautiful TV stand that my 60 inch TV fits perfectly on.
1. There are 16 steps required to setup the credenza
2. One Philips screwdriver and hammer is required. I had to use electric driver - it was nearly impossible to get it done without using an electrical driver. This may be just me.
3. Not all parts were labeled. It was easy to figure out the parts that were not labeled.
4. It looks really good after the setup.
5. There was cosmetic damage during shipping- especially the part that is going to stay up. I am going to put the safety sticker on top of it so it does not show.
6. The box is heavy and was left in porch. You'll need a hand to get it inside the house.
7. Assembly instructions were really clear and very well done.
8. Easy to pass cables from back.
9. Parts are good quality
I ordered this online and chose the site-to-store delivery option. I picked it up today, 11/17/12 and took it home and put it together. At first, I was a little worried I wasn't going to like it, but 5 hours later this TV stand looks amazing. It's solid and really looks incredible.
