I was prepared to buy a traditional, squared off TV stand when I swerved into this item on the Crutchfield site. The curvy shape works in almost any type of room placement but it's particularly well suited for a corner which is one reason that I chose it. Aside from that, it's just a handsome piece of furniture and well sized to accommodate a 49" Sony. It does require assembly but the instruction diagrams are very easy to follow and all the required parts were nicely packaged and labeled. The shipping box was pretty beat up, slashed in some places and re-taped in others. However, none of the items were damaged and all contents were in perfect condition. Some of the styrofoam padding had crumbled which resulted in hundreds of statically charged particles that had to be vacuumed from our floor. Also, check your measurements carefully if you have an A/V receiver....some of the thicker ones may not fit between the lower and middle shelf. All that aside, the assembled piece looks great and I'm very happy with the purchase. Right after I bought it, the price dropped and Crutchfield graciously honored their price protection guarantee.
Pros: Very stylish and a nice alternative to the squared off TV stands. Works great in corners. Quality parts and easy assembly.
Cons: Very thick A/V receivers may not fit between lower and middle shelves.
