Pros: Looks just like the picture, very sturdy and does not feel cheap once you put it together, does not look cheap, color is true to advertisement picture (black), even the "heavy duty cardboard" like material such as the back side of the unit is still pretty solid, the way the item was packed for shipping was very good (withstand abuse), and most importantly you cannot beat the price.
Cons: Packaging is very heavy (~100 lbs) which means you need assistance to take it into your car or into your house. I work out and am fairly strong (deadlift 350 lbs) but the box is just too awkward and heavy to carry by yourself without risking injury. The unit does NOT have cable holes for the glass side cabinets so if you wanted to put an item there which requires a cable or plug to connect to your tv/power outlet/ or even just the middle shelves; you would need to make a hole yourself.
Side notes: All the cons are really minor things that would not affect me from purchasing this unit again. My wife put this together by herself without any help from me. I did not test the actual stability of placing a tv on top of this as I mounted my tv on the wall above this unit which still looks good.
I had been looking for a TV stand and have had Sauder products before. The stand actually came a day before it was suppose to, it wasn't damaged in any way, all the parts were there and it went together without any hassles. I am a widow and thought I might have to call my son for help, but I didn't. I simply followed the instructions and didn't rush. Like I said, all the parts were there (and there was a lot!), but it went together perfectly. No one can believe I only paid $175 for this stand. It looks better than any of the ones I saw in furniture stores. I would highly recommend it. Very, very pleased.
This stand looks very nice. We have a lot of game systems/cable box/dvd player and they all fit without looking cluttered. We have a ton of movies too and most of them fit in the two sides.
Well when i picked this product up it was so heavy, i was worried, but when i got home and put it together it was really nice. It had no missing parts, not a single screw was missing, instead it had 1 or 2 extras. All the instructions were very clear and the steps were in order. Be sure to read the steps together with looking at the pictures. When i finally was done with fixing it, it looked so good. Now days you don't get good looking furniture for this price. It looks classy, its strong, it beautiful, its the perfect size! i could keep going on and on with it, but it actually looks better than the picture. In fact a lot of family members and guest liked it too!!! It was a really good buy!
I absolutely love my TV stand. It is beautiful and looks like the picture. I was hesitant to order because of the price but it is truly worth it. Shipping was quick and so was delivery considering we live on a military base. I ordered on 8/15/2013 and fed ex delivered on 8/20/13. I was also skeptical in ordering due to mix reviews on installing the TV stand but I ordered anyway because this TV stand is definitely my style and no other stand from the pictures looked as good as this one.
The TV stand was properly packed with all its pieces with no chips or scratches. It took my husband about 3 hours to complete (he's not that handy). I was worried he would get frustrated with all the pieces but I can assure you that if you follow the instructions step by step you will get a beautiful finish result. A lot of reviews say the pieces aren't marked but they are. Two pieces I saw had letter stickers and the others were hand marked with what appears to be a marker. Look carefully or you may miss it. Both doors on the side open and close with ease and holds our 42' great. The stand is a dark espresso brown (which i wanted) a lot of reviewers says it looks black but not to me.
Overall I am very pleased and happy with my purchase and would recommend to anyone considering buying this piece do so as you will not be disappointed.
This Tv stand came in a lot of pieces to assemble but the instructions were very thorough and all the pieces were marked with letters to guide you, my brother was able to put it together pretty quick. It's good for storaging dvds and looks nice. I also like the fact that its real wood. The only criticism I have is that underneath the bottom is rough so it made it very hard to move it on my carpet and the back holes for the cords are very small which made it difficult to fit everything through the back.
It's a great TV stand. We were looking for something nice that wouldn't be too difficult to put together (wanted to be able to put it together so I didn't have to find a way to get a big stand home in our car). Was easy to put together, however, when trying to put it together, one of the decorative pieces on the bottom that you have to bend, snapped in half. Luckily without the piece in place it still looks great. We are very happy with it.
I have had nothing but good luck ordering from the Walmart website. The TV stand is beautiful and was exactly what I need. I shopped around and noone could beat walmarts price! It was also extremely easy to put together! Love it!
I had been looking for a good-sized TV stand for my apartment space, which is not very big. I needed a stand that was big enough to fit my 47" flat screen, and that was sturdy enough so that it wouldn't bow inward over time (which seems to be a big problem over time with a lot of cheaper stands). This one shipped very quickly and the delivery people brought it right up to my apartment (on the third floor), which was AWESOME, because the box is incredibly heavy.
The stand itself is very well made (Sauder is a great brand) and has great support. I do not think it will collapse over time and under the weight of my TV. It has a lot of great storage space and is a great size/height! It is a very VERY dark brown (pretty much black), and it looks much more expensive than what I paid for it. I have already received so many compliments on it! I'm so happy I got it (even though it took about an hour and a half to put together. Follow the instructions and you'll be fine!). HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Very nice for the money. Good quality hardware and assembly instructions. Would recommend to a friend.
I really like this stand! It's sturdy and looks much more expensive than it is. I also like all the shelves. The only complaint I have is very minor: There are pieces that go along the front of the stand (on the bottom) that aren't made very well. There aren't pre-drilled holes, so the wood split a little, and very thin pieces of wood (almost like cardboard) slide in between the wood pieces. It still looks nice but could have been made a little better.
I honestly expected less! This was a great deal considering how expensive entertainment centers are. It looks great. It honestly looks black to me. The only time I see a hint of brown is in direct sunlight. My boyfriend put it together without any problems. It's perfect for our condo. No damage, no scratches. The "paper/cardboard bottom" people were referring to kinda scared me at first, but it sturdier stuff than I expected. I am a happy camper! I've attached a photo...we don't have a runner yet...so that's a towel on top so out TV won't scratch it!
After have no success at all the local furniture places in finding something that would fit our space, have the required amount of shelves and in the color scheme we needed, we turned to looking online and came across this Sauder product. It's better than we expected and actually blends in with the bookshelves and coffee/end tables from a local furniture store that we paid much more for.
The fit and finish is a little better than what I expected for a Sauder product and the curves of the unit give it a more elegant appeal than traditional square type units. That said, be sure not to tighten anything until edges make a snug fit.
Our unit arrived better than expected packaging and wasn't banged up from shipping from FedEx. Unfortunately after unwrapping it, we found that one of the little side shelves was broke. Additionally, the main top and bottom boards, that are packaged together, must've had something stuck between them and right in the middle of them, there was scratch marks down to the wood on each panel. Not something you could hide. (see attached)
Thought about returning the whole thing due to that and the broken shelf, but my better half found some furniture markers at a local store in dark brown and used those to cover up the marks. I was skeptical about it, but they work and you can't tell unless you're looking for it and are close enough to know even where to look. Also, went onto Sauder's website and placed an order for a replacement shelf, free of charge.
I did have to drill an extra set of holes for the middle shelf to reside on as my receiver only had about a half inch of clearance from the shelf above and I wanted more airflow for it. A measuring tape, cordless drill, drill bit, 20 minutes and it was done.
All in all we're pleasantly surprised with it.
The stand was fairly easy to put together, directions were clear. It looked pretty much the way it does in the photo. There is plenty of room for cable box, dvd player, etc. I was a little surprised that the curved piece at the bottom front is actually a piece of heavy duty cardboard. The silver knobs are a nice touch.
Extremely happy with this product! We were looking for a media stand with adjustable shelving to accommodate our xbox360 stereo wii and pretty large DVD collection. Everything fits perfect and looks appealing and wasn't too difficult to assemble my sister and I had this completed within an hour. Def recommend at least two people to assemble, only tool required is a screw driver. Would def recommend for anyone looking for space saving and multi media purposes holds our 40'' perfectly.
I love the look of this stand. Although it took me (a tiny woman whose never picked up a screwdriver) 3 hrs to complete, the end result was beautiful. The instructions were easy to follow and if I can do it anyone can. It was well worth the purchase.
I'm very happy with this TV stand. It is exactly as described on the website, and looks exactly like the photo on the website. The instructions on how to put it together were "excellent". I'd arranged for somebody to come by and put it all together for me, but after removing the wrapping & packaging, and sorting all the pieces, and reading the instructions…. before I knew it 4 hours had passed and it was done! I had difficulty with the door hinges and almost gave up, but once I figured out how the hinge worked…. I have to admit is was a user error situation. It is a very heavy package to haul in from the front porch so if you're lucky enough to catch the FedX driver as he/she delivers ask for his/her help getting it inside. Wear gloves when assembling as there are many many screws and the instructions indicate no power tools…. not sure why, but I obeyed and got a blister on my palm and middle finger. Now I await the muscles to help me place it and hook everything up.
The piece is simply gorgeous now that it has been assembled. Although it is not black, more like chocolate, it is stately and adds elegance to my homes decor. Everyone who views it has been simply in awe of it! Exactly what I was looking for! My only complaints are that it was extremely difficult to assemble... took like 5 hours... way too much time and is extremely heavy for a lone female. In addition, it is just a little bigger than what I anticipated. Thought it would be smaller, but it still fits my small space nicely!
Easy set up but i am not a crafts woman so it took me a little longer overall the tv stand is nice and fits my 50in flat screen perfect .
Relatively easy to put together especially for the number of parts. It took about an hour. It looks nice and the wife loves it. That's what counts most.
