Great Buy


I have installed many flat screen televisions on the wall and this was by far the easiest ever. We won a new 50" plasma and I was able to hang it by myself with no problems. We love it and it is very sturdy!!!!

Nice item


I did not expect the shelves to be glasses but I was pleasantly surprised upon assembling. It was very easy to assemble and it can hold many electronic items including a wide sound bar that did not fit into two other condole I have.

Sleek, compact, great for the price.


The TV stand was exactly as expected. I wanted something sleek and clean looking, and I thought that this piece was the right fit. The picture they provide makes it hard to tell what you're getting ... when the stand was all assembled, you can't really...
