Materials great, Manufacturing bad
on 22 February 2016
It looks good (see other reviewers' images). Glass very dark and highly reflective.
Quality materials used! That's real glass and real aluminium tubing on there.
Plenty of space for all sorts of boxes on the shelves. Each could comfortably accommodate 2 VCR/DVD boxes stacked on top of each other, plus an extra one on the bottom shelf. They're also wide enough for two boxes, so you could probably fit 2*(3+2)= 10 in total. Plenty of space!
While my tv isn't here yet, I can say it'll hold 8.3kg of bag with a contact radius not dissimilar to your typical circular TV stand.
No instruction manual. No easily accessible link to one from the website either (-1 star). It's fairly intuitive, just note that plastic spacers should go between all aluminium and glass parts - and ideally orient the cable tidies so they're both toward the bottom of the shelf. Assemble upside down.
Aluminium tubing was rough cut on edges and was still full with filings (see image) - manufacturer had not bothered to clean these away. Breathing in fine metal dust is of course bad for the lungs. -1 star for cutting corners leading to potentially unsafe assembly.
I like it - best looking stand around for the price. Please charge another 20p and remove those filings/provide an instruction booklet.
