Sauder Beginnings Entertainment Wall System, this unit was rather easy to put together

Holds a surprising amount of weight and is surprisingly sturdy. I say surprisingly because as i was putting. Holds a surprising amount of weight and is surprisingly sturdy. I say surprisingly because as i was putting it together and standing it up, it felt like there weren’t enough panels on the base to support itself upright and i was really really worried about it falling over as soon as i put a tv on it. But it is actually balanced, doesn’t fall over, and the shelves on the sides can hold a fair amount of weight too. I’d still make sure to mount it to the wall though to be safe. I went several months without a single teeter but one tiny wobble convinced me to finally put the holes in my walls to mount it.

Good price, easy-moderate assembly. Very happy with this product. I didn’t attach the wall brackets, just have the system standing on carpet, and i don’t have any concerns about its stability. Assembly took a few hours, not particularly difficult for 1 person as long as you can stand the unit up at the end by yourself.

It is hard to put it together i had to get a pro to do that because i could never figure it out.

“Overwhelmed with all the pieces, Awesome center. Keep this in mind, It was easy to assemble”

Needs to be more clear of the color.

This unit was rather easy to put together. Even though i read product reviews, this unit was rather easy to put together, coming from someone with no carpenter skills whatsoever. It only took a little over an hour and is even bigger than i expected.

I bought this and a tv for my son and daughter in law as a wedding gift. It is thin and doesn’t take up a lot of space, but it does need to be secured to the wall if you are going to put it on carpet. It does not have a wide enough base to be safe to stand on its own and not very heavy. I would secure it no matter where you put it because it could be tiped over very easily even by a small child. Very easy to put together but 2 people make it easier.

It was easy to assemble, and came with very self-explanatory directions. It took a lot of open space to initially put it together, and it did take a couple of hours of assembly, but it is perfectly sturdy once properly assembled. We did not have to attach it to the wall for stability, and it fit our 32in flat-screen tv with lots of room to spare. In fact, we are going to get a bigger tv to fill the extra space, just because we can. I have no complaints about this product, and i simply love it. I did read other reviews where some people said it wasn’t sturdy, and it was wobbly. We did not have that experience. But i will say we do not have carpet in our house, and set it up on a level tile floor. That may or may not make a difference with the stability of the product once it’s assembled.

It took 3 hours, but i did it by myself.

It wasnt that hard to put together either.The package is heavy,so make sure you have someone to help you lift it. It fit all 4 of our systems,our soundbar,and alot of our games,and guidebooks. Ours stands on it’s own,but it may need to be mounted if you have a baby.

I have absolutely no complaints about the furniture itself; everything was as advertised and came to me in great quality. (didn’t fit half of my movies, but that was a miscalculation on my part, not theirs). One thing to keep in mind: you will need to mount this to your wall. The way the unit is constructed — which you cannot really see in the stock photo — makes it front heavy; the bottom four shelves for the devices actually stick out quite a bit. This causes the unit to rock toward and back when you pull things off and on it (movies, books, your tv, etc. You’ll either need to mount it with the bracket that comes with it, go out and buy straps, or get braces cut to act as thicker ‘legs’ on the bottom for more support. (currently, we have a bunch of old books wedge underneath).

Perfect for the price, had two different people put it together (because im inept at building) and it went well from what i could tell. It does it’s job and im in love with it for the price for sure. It does wobble on carpet but im sure it’ll settle.

Way smaller than i anticipated. It was very easy and fast to put together but was much smaller than i expected. The shelves kind of slide around but what ever. I will probably end up putting two large shelves on each side to make it seem bigger.

I love how you can move the shelves on the side. I love how you can move the shelves on the side to fit your needs. It’s just the right size for my tvs, cable box & ps4. Only thing i wish it was a little higher but other than that i love it.

43 inch fits fine with extra space ( thin bezel ). Yo can fit a 45 inch tv as long as it has a thin bezel. My tv is a 43 inch 4k spectre with a thin bezel with 2 inches to spare. I can fit a 45 inch television if it has a thin bezel.

Overwhelmed with all the pieces. A couple of the pieces didn’t have a letter or number so i skipped some steps and end up winging it. It took me about 3hrs to put together.

Had to build another shelf a little higher to comfortably watch tv. The tv shelf is a little low and could be a little higher especially when utilized in a bedroom to look over the foot of the bed. Had to build another shelf a little higher to comfortably watch tv.

Great size for my living room. Great size for my living room; it gives me just the amount of items i should have before i reach the clutter mark.

Good quality shipped fast and received fast. Good quality shipped fast and received fast. Does not hold a 42 inch flat screen tv in it. Kinda small compaired to picture but over all a good entertainment center.

It is hard to put it together i had to get a pro to do that because i could never figure it out.

Instructions were easy enough to understand. You get what you paid for so the wood is cheap and there were some chips. I like it though and it’s a nice addition to our living room.
