It took my husband about 1 1/2 hours to fully install it, and that was because he is a carpenter and took the necessary time to glue everything properly and make sure it was built sturdy. I read the reviews about the quality being poor and the veneer looking shabby, but let me tell you truthfully - IT LOOKS GREAT.
I consider myself pretty handy, so the assembly was not that bad. It took a little over an hour, hour and a half to get finished. One drawback that others may dislike, the stickers that are designed to go over the screws to hide them look great and would conceal them nicely, if only they actually stuck. I opted to just throw them out, and I still think it looks fine. The screws are on the inside of the shelves, so it is dark in there and they are hard to see anyway
Absolutely love the TV Stand. It is very sturdy and heavy so it does take a strong person to lift it as it came in a 80lbs box which I was not expecting. That could be the reason why some reviews I read arrived damaged
The only reason I am giving this 4 stars is because the product is advertised as "wood." The material is MDF and laminate, not a hardwood like I was expecting. It has the appearance of wood and looks decent enough, but when you touch it you can tell it is a cheaper material. This probably seems petty considering the price, but I just wanted other people to be aware. It seems sturdy so far, but I am not sure how well it will hold up to normal wear and tear because I just got it.
