The Hal stand is great. For reference, my tv is 55". It is a little cumbersome to put together and is certainly much easier if two people tag-tag team it. But it is large, sturdy and has ample storage on the shelf area and behind the doors (which I need to adjust). Aesthetically it is great to look at. Absolute bargain for what I paid for it!
Been looking a long time for just the right TV stand.... Found it. Got it in the driftwood color...beautiful. It is a sturdy piece, and was easy to put together. It is not real wood, but it is textured to feel like it, and no one will tell the difference. Got a 55" on it with pleanty of room to spare. Great looking piece, would recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade from those standard black TV stands we all had, or for the larger flatscreens 55"-60"
Inspiration for a small modern l-shaped light wood floor and brown floor enclosed kitchen remodel in Seattle with a single-bowl sink, flat-panel cabinets, light wood cabinets, quartz countertops, white backsplash, ceramic backsplash, stainless steel appliances and an island Drawers for basic cooking ingredients next to stove and ovens
I looked at reviews beforehand and saw the complaints about running out of the wood glue before the assembly was done, so I had already purchased some extra before I started. It was a good thing I did because I definitely would have run out, so that is something to keep in mind.
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.
I was worried when I received this because the box was damaged in places. When I opened it, however, I inspected every piece thoroughly and found no damage whatsoever, not even a scratch. The box had clearly been thrown around so the packaging was effective. It also came two days earlier than I was expecting. As far as assembly goes, it took me under two hours to put it together by myself and I have very little experience building things. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, all the parts and hardware (some extra) were included and clearly labeled, and all the holes, bolts and screws were lined up perfectly. The only extra tool I needed was a Phillips screwdriver.
