Easy to put together. It is a substantial piece of furniture - not "tacky". Proved to be a very stable base for my 32" TV. Well-pleased with my purchase. Worth quite a bit more than the current Amazon price.
This item is slightly smaller than i imagined it would be and the shelf is very small but overall it is plenty big enough for my 32inch tv and the black gloss makes it a wow feature in my room. i am going to add wheels as it sits on the floor and ive nowhere to hide all the cables so adding wheels will give it some height and i can tuck the cables underneath and out of sight. i put it together on my own and it took about 20 mins. a very nice item and swift delivery but it lost a * because of the cable situation..
Like some others, I received this item slightly damaged - the metal mounting for the glass middle shelf had burst through its packaging, collided with the black lacquered top shelf and knocked a small piece of it out, Also, I had to remove and re-position the metal brackets for the middle shelf or it would have sloped down some 20mm from front to back. This left one of the original screw holes exposed on each side. The last of my gripes is that the black plastic screw caps were not very well made and required some tidying up with craft knife before they would be persuaded to pop into the crosses in the heads of the lock-fastenings. I don't think the item was packed by a person wearing gloves as there were a number of finger/hand prints on the various parts. All of the foregoing having been said, this stand does represent good value for money and if you are prepared to take the shortcomings in your stride as I did, it's quite a good piece of kit. Not sure about the German brand name (VonHaus) or the ripped off company name (Designer HABITAT Ltd) though, as the unit is actually made in China.
