Sauder Harbor View Corner TV Stand in Antiqued Paint
- Shopper in
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.

Altra Furniture Mason Ridge Mobile TV Stand in Cherry Finish
- Shopper in
This Cymax rolling entertainment center/TV+entertainment system cart replaced a 5/6-year-old static stand that was beginning to
break. The Cymax stand supports our 40" flat panel on the top shelf, our HTIB, Blu-Ray, and satellite receiver on the second shelf, and our turntable and system power source/surge protector on the bottom shelf. It makes accessing the various connections of the systems components easy because it's on casters and can be easily moved, but can be made stationary by locking the tgwo front casters.
The only real drawbacks to the cart are
1) That the bottom shelf doesn't have enough room to open the clear plastic turntable cover and easily place an album on the platter; and,
2) There is no rear panel behind the top shelf, so the wires aren't hidden and some cabling is able to be seem; and,
3) While the cart is handsome enough, it would has been better to have had
a) an all-black option in addition the the wood grain-covered MDF used as shelving to allow it to blend better with a more modern, contemporary design environment; and
b) black as well as silvery-colored casters, for the same reason.
That said, its advantages outweighed its disadvantages, and we purchased and assembled it and are pleased with the result.
I would recommend this Cymax entertainment system cart for those wanting a handsome, sleek design that allows easy acces to system components.
