... despite being made in China. I googled this model prior to purchase and found that overstock.com, officedepot.com and a couple of other sites were $30-$100 higher priced for the very same model number. Plus, save the shipping and have it sent to your local Wally-Mart for pick-up. But be warned: this is a big and heavy item; you'll need a pickup, SUV or large car with fold-down back seats via the trunk to get it in. The store will assist you loading it; you're on your own getting the beast out of the vehicle. You'll need two garbage cans to dispose of all the Styrofoam packing products, and you'll still have 2-3 large cardboard boxes to dispose of. Instructions state that you should have someone assist in the assembly. This is true. I managed, somehow, to get it out of the trunk and on the surface of the garage, then sliced the box open with a box cutter and removed the pieces. I DO NOT recommend this unless you are strong and sharp on assembling things like this. Assembly: again, have someone help you. Don't try this alone (even though I managed). There's only one early instructions section where two items aren't fully labeled properly, bottom legs if I recall but could be wrong. The rest is a breeze. Best to read the instructions a couple of times over the course of a day or two, then lay out the parts on the floor or a bed (but DO NOT remove parts from the bags -- as the bags have the part numbers labeled to avoid confusion). I also happened to have cheap ($9) furniture gliders on hand. So, 3/4 of the way through assembly, I slid these under each leg. Once fully assembled, I was able to slide it into place easily. Even my 25-pound dog could have slid it into place, that is, if he had opposable thumbs. The finished product looks beautiful. And remember, this holds a TV up to just over 150 lbs. Not too many other comparable ones do, at least at this price.
