Completely broken after 3 weeks. The boards are closer to card board. Very thin and flimsy. Company only gives 7 day returns. Save your money!!

Avoid like the plague!
In 15 years or so of purchasing through AlumiGogo, this is the first occasion on which I have been driven to submit a review. Don't be fooled by the artfully staged photo that makes this piece seem attractive. Though I wasn't expecting anything wonderful for the price, this could not even meet my minimal expectations. First of all, the packaging is inadequate which resulted in a few of the pieces being damaged upon arrival...crushed corners, and so forth. I decided to press on and build the piece anyway, but now as I assemble the sides there is a gap on one which is not existent on the other. This is not due to poor screw placement on my part, as the pieces in question have existing dowel holes in place. Now I lack the will to complete construction of this pressboard folly, and can't imagine going through the pain of sending it back at this point. It is most likely going straight to the trash.
So, if you are contemplating buying this piece I would advise you to find a better use for that $50. Perhaps going to a diner with a jukebox and playing "What's New Pussycat?" 50 times in a row, or crumpling up single dollar bills into a pile, then setting fire to those bills and spend the next 2 minutes roasting marshmallows. This item would have a negative star rating if that were possible.

Poor quality, cheaply made BUT looks ok...
***Update*** I took away 1 star for shady business. On the reviews it looks like someone from this company who is not a "verified purchase" but only an "AlumiGogo customer" gave it 5 stars...the funny thing with that is the actual review was a copy and pasted review from the day before...so it's a 5 star rating with a copy and pasted negative review!! Lol.. I'm not one to cause trouble but this really bothers me when people are shady and lie. Thought you might want to know this before purchasing this product - I know I would!!
(Original review below)
I'm only giving it 2 stars because it LOOKS decent when put together, it really only deserves 1 star for the poor quality. My 40" tv is very light but honestly I don't trust this at all, will be replacing asap. It came out of the box with SO many flaws (scratches, cracks). The only reason I didn't attempt to return it is because of the hassle it would be and I needed a tv stand now. It says the top holds 50lbs..I highly doubt it. For the 40$ price range I paid it's ok as a stand, maybe even a small light tv, but had I known, I would have paid extra for better quality. And I can already tell you that if you do buy this, DON'T put anything wet on it, or anything that can scratch it. It's made of wood, yes, but the covering is like wood paper (not sure what you call it), I bought a coffee table of the same material and within weeks it was ruined. All in all not recommended. And I don't believe the "list price" of $89.99 ... I think they say that to make you think when it's $40-50 you're getting a bargain. (It worked on me). There's NO way this is worth $90!! Buyer beware!!

Good for price, dimensions inaccurate
It is smaller than the dimensions given. It is pretty cheap press board. However I am using it to hold my movie series, cable box, vhs/DVD player, Wii, v smile, and sound bar without an issue. My nearly 4 year old twins have been caught slamming the doors on it without issue. I'm disappointed with size and my husband is with quality but for the price, well ya get what ya pay for. If you do purchase be sure to read the instructions first.

The stand itself is nice and sleek
First off, the delivery was much faster than expected so points there.
The stand itself is nice and sleek. When properly built, it is definitely sturdier than I first thought upon first seeing the pieces after arrival.
Do be mindful of the setup however as I did manage to sink a dowel all the way into a joint (probably from having the joint go too deep into the piece) but otherwise it is a rather easy build.

would have liked the top panel also to be screwed on instead ...
careful with the setting up, nothing broke and everything fits. was worried after all the reviews seen. would have liked the top panel also to be screwed on instead of rivets. some fillers for unused holes would have done better to the aesthetics. works well with the 32" TV i have. overall value for money

I can't say anything good about this product
Do not buy this at any price. I can't say anything good about this product. The predrilled holes are all wrong causing the pressboard to split when you assemble it. I was lucky to mickey mouse it together. It is at my vacation home and I left my TV on it. I hope the stand hasn't collapsed.

This product was nothing but a piece of garbage. One day after it was set up it fell to pieces. Cheap plywood. Very poorly made. I had to throw it in the garbage. There were no pieces to send it back for refund even if I wanted to. I would not recommend this product at all!

Good for temporary stand, not very sturdy
-The wood finish looks nice
-Good storage space
-not very sturdy wouldn't recommend moving it around a lot as it feels it will fall apart
-Instructions are kind of confusing
-no shelves inside door sections

I definitely knew I was taking a risk when I purchased this because of other reviews and price. But I literally can't even set anything on it or move it without it falling apart. The wood split in numerous places while trying to set it up. Sucked.
