The way our living room is laid out, the only place for us to situate our TV is in the corner. I ordered this piece from Cymax a
nd received it a few days later. Cymax had the best price I could find. Fedex dropped it off at my garage door. When I retrieved it, I found out it is heavy. I couldn't lift it by myself or with the help of my teenage daughter. We unboxed it in the garage and carried the pieces into the house a few at a time.
Assembly was straightforward. The manual is easy to follow. It is definitely not hard to assemble, but it is time consuming. There are a lot of parts and it took my daughter and I about four hours.
There was one small wooden part that was cracked in the box. It was cracked in such a way that I was able to use some wood glue to repair it and no one will ever be the wiser. The repair is invisible.
After we finished the assembly, I had to adjust the drawers for a proper fit. Instructions for adjusting the height of the drawers are not in the manual which is probably why some of the other reviewers complain about the drawer fit. To adjust the drawers, you have to pull them out slightly and turn the big phillips head cam to move the runner up or down. Loosen the runners a little before making the adjustment.
If you don't mind the lengthy assembly time and babying sore muscles for a couple of days because of the weight, I recommend the unit. It looks beautiful when it's done and set in place.
