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.

Powell Furniture Glossy Silver U-Shaped 50" Plasma Stand with Black Tempered Glass Shelves
- Shopper in
This is a great product. I was reluctant to order this piece online because it had a painted gray frame. I have similar pieces t
hat have a gray finish and have tarnished quickly. This has not been the case with this piece.
When it arrived, I was able to quickly assemble the stand without using the directions. It was very straight forward, and used simple, common tools.
Once assembled, I began to load my components on the shelves with ease. The unit does have a wire management area on the back and I was able to conceal: 6 Speaker Wires, 2 HDMI Cables, 3 Components Cables, and lastly, 5 Power Cords. This is very important to me because I hate to see dangling cords behind the unit. It did not come with any wire ties, however, I did use some and attached one to the rear of the unit in the perforated section to assist with the wire concealment. It may have taken ten minutes to get it right...
Now that it is all done, I have had nothing but compliments from all my friends. It is the same width (+/- 1") as my TV and looks like something out of a catalog.
Oh, the only con, be ready to dust this piece about once every week and a half. The black glass tends to show dust accumulation.
