Rated 5 out of 5 by LukesMom Beautiful Piece of Furniture
Received this item packed well & in great condition with all hardware individually marked & sealed. Took about 45 mins to put together with all sections clearly marked & fitting together well. When finished, there was a really great Media Cabinet to hold many CD's, VHS Tapes and DVD's. Actually thinking about another for the basement family room. You won't be sorry with this purchase!
Rated 2 out of 5 by staralaska bad instructions, hard to put together
Once together, this looks pretty nice. I don't really know how sturdy it is. It was very difficult to put together ( and I have put A LOT of furniture together in the past). The instructions are hard to follow, and flat out wrong in some instances. The camlocks would not turn like they should, and 2 of them broke into pieces in the wood. I almost had the same problem as the other reviewer, luckily, at the last minute, I realized the screws were too long, and would go through the top piece of wood, so I used some smaller screws instead. I don't know why they make it so 2 shelves can only hold dvd's lying down. That seems pointless to me. But, something this heavy and fragile, you don't really want to have to send back. Didn't seem worth the price to me, it's mostly particle board.
Rated 3 out of 5 by jen-dod Nice looking but problems with assembly
This piece looks attractive and is overall good value for money - but you need to know that there are a couple of things about the assembly that would have stopped me from purchasing if I had of know before. The moveable shelves can only be placed, so that you can stand DVD's up on 4 of the shelves. 2 of the shelves have to be only about 5 inches deep, so you can only lay DVD's down. Not what I wanted. Secondly, the screws that hold the magnetic closure in place are too long and therefore came through the top of the unit. I spent over an hour putting this together, only to find that I had 2 unsightly holes in the top and as I glued the dowels in, cannot break the unit down to repackage and return.
