Altra Carson 50″ TV Stand – After assemble itz better

Amazing tv stand, worth the price. Excellent purchase in the category. Me and my friend assembled it up in less than 45mins. Instruction guide is very carefully designed. Quality is just commendable. Perfectly goes on with my lg 47lb5900.

Solid tv stand that looks nice and functions for a good price. Purposei bought this tv stand for a 42′ tv in my child’s video game room. The tv is light and only a couple of components need to be inside the stand. The xbox one sits nicely in the large area just under the top. Putting it here will give it plenty of air circulation. It is exactly what i needed and more than i expected. Packagingthe product came in one box. The same box as you would get at the store i’m assuming. Everything was well packaged with styrofoam, corner braces, and protective plastic. Setupif you’ve ever put together furniture from directions before, you will have no problems putting this together. The instructions state that 2 people should assemble the unit, but i had no problems putting this together myself (although you may need more than one person to carry the unassembled package to your assembly area. If you follow the instructions and keep it on it’s side as you build, you will be fine. The instructions stated that it would take 30 minutes to assemble, but it took me 1. This may be because i checked all the contents before putting it together, went through the instructions first without assembling, removed the stickers as i went, and always double checked everything. Everything had an identification sticker on it (a, b, c, etc), not necessary and a pain to remove from 6 of the same braces, etc. , but some may find it helpful. Most cheaper self-assemble furniture have a cardboard backing that you hammer in, this one contains a piece of wood (1/8 inch) that makes it a little nicer and more sturdy. A little hint, when assembling the hinges, screw the hinges to the cabinet (loosely) and then to the door.

This stand is about 21′ tall and about 46′ long it looks very nice in my living room. It was really easy to assemble it, and it has a really great color. When it comes to align the doors or make them look straight is kind of tricky but just just have to use your screwdriver and tight it or loose it , whatever your need is, and make sure both doors are aligned the same way. If the doors are not aligned, when u close them it’ll look like the doors are falling, so make sure you do it right and straight. Here are the specifications for the Altra Carson 50″ TV Stand:

  • Add a touch of contemporary design to your living room with the Altra Carson 50” TV Stand
  • TV Stand accommodates a flat screen TV up to 50” with a maximum weight of 60 lbs.
  • Stand offers both open and closed storage for all your entertainment components
  • Keep your cable box, gaming console, DVD player and speakers on the 2 adjustable and 1 fixed shelf
  • Behind each of the 2 doors you’ll find 1 adjustable and 1 fixed shelf with room for your books, games and DVDs

Great looking sturdy stand, and even better as a full set. This review is for both the altra carson tv stand for tvs up to 70′ and the audio stand. I purchased one tv stand and two audio stands (both in black/cherry) and they look great as a set. The total set is about 98′ wide so you will need a long empty wall if you intend to set up the full set. The items cannot be purchased as a set with the 70′ tv stand size. I received the audio stands first so i assembled them prior to receiving the tv stand. It about two hours to put together the two stands. The most challenging part to assemble was the doors as you have to use a guess and check method to get the doors aligned correctly so they do not scratch against the top and bottom when they open and close. The top of the stand is about 55′ tall, and you essentially get four shelves on each stand in addition to the storage behind the door. The instructions advise not to put anything on the top of the stand, but if you have something less than five pounds that is not breakable i think it would be safe.

Came in as heavy package some pieces looks roughed and scratched but all parts are included. They should have made better packaging. While assembling all prices together i felt not solid about it but after finished assembling it looked better and strong. Hey it will take minimum one hr or more to assemble it gracefully and cover some scratches or edges with some sticky paper they already include. Overall i am happy with the purchase for the money i spent. Be aware that white stuff thermocol all over place. Edges of this wood are not protected and easily could get damaged. If they choose right packing then it could have been even better. It fits my 55 inch tv neck to neck.

The delivery service was great. They called me 30 minutes before the arrival and it was at the beginning of the time window. I was able to put it together by myself in under 3 hours while working in a small space. I agree with other reviewers you do need to be a little careful because you can scratch or dent trying to move all the pieces around. The most challenging part was getting the hinges straight so it would close without scraping the top or bottom. I like the small fireplace (not too distracting because the tv is the focal point) & the heater works very well. Shaker style design perfectly matches my kitchen cabinets. I have a 65 inch and it fits perfectly.

Most pain in the @55 thing to put on if you do that step last and it does have that step lastlooks great in the living room.
