I spent a great deal of time reading the reviews for different products - including every single review and all questions & answers about THIS particular armoire - before finally making my decision. That paid off in bunches because my first choice without reading this input from consumers was something much different and would have been a disaster! I LOVE the final product - it IS as is says it is! Sturdy, (it IS heavy), the distressed black/brown matches all other furniture perfectly and it looks gorgeous! It came in ONE package - 162 pounds. Thank goodness for my husband and the delivery driver! But I laid it all out, piece by piece, screw by screw, part by part and took my time - I enjoy putting this type of thing together. If you've put self-assembled furniture together in the past, this will not be difficult AT ALL. The directions were absolutely perfect - follow them! While reading the questions & answers about the actual, physical space available for a printer, I was worried about my printer fitting on this printer shelf. The responses indicated that I might be too tight by only 1/2 an inch...but I decided to get the armoire anyway and store the printer elsewhere if needed. But... lucky for me - not so! The measurement of the printer shelf is exactly 17 1/2" WIDE... but that measurement is the actual shelf - it does NOT include the small lip of each rail slider AND the very small space between the rail slider and the actual shelf. My printer is 18" wide and lightweight - and 18" deep, including the paper tray. (**I used the BOTTOM holes for this shelf - NOT the top holes as it shows in the directions. The directions say to use the holes of your choice, so you have to think about which holes to use, and then use the appropriate & matching holes in a later step.) It fits PERFECTLY!! Tight - but perfect, the printer tray slides out easily and I have great access to the scanning insert tray on top - which is WHY I used the bottom holes - I wanted as much room as possible to lift the lid to scan documents if I need to. The printer does have a scanning FEEDER so as not to have to lift the lid, but sometimes, you need that access. The front armoire doors close perfectly when all is tucked away. I couldn't be happier! I will definitely purchase the SAUDER brand again. The "Harbor View" style is attractive - you will never have someone say - "Wow, I guess you get what you pay for!" :)
