Like my other Sauder furniture, the Sauder Panel TV Stand is a solid, quality piece of furniture. I love the rich cherry finish, it is the perfect compliment to my bedroom suite. The box may look overwhelming, as there are many pieces to assemble, but they are clearly labeled, into the double digits, and the assembly handbook shows each step in clear to follow language. The pieces are easily assembled with manual tools, in fact the book says not to use a power drill. The open, adjustable center shelves offer plenty of room for our cable box, dvr, as well as a blue ray player. The side cabinets are also large enough to use as additional storage. The doors close tightly, as all the pieces align with no gaping in between. I love that the Sauder Panel TV Stand is built in the USA and backed by Sauder's money back guarantee. The top of the TV stand is sturdy, supporting up to 95 pounds, so you would have no problem setting an older, tube type tv on top. This Sauder Panel TV Stand is a quality built, easy to assemble, beautiful piece that will last for a long time.
