Espresso 58″ Wide Wall Mounted AV Console, Good unit. Needs better mounting screws.

Love the fact that it’s off the ground and away. Love the fact that it’s off the ground and away from toddlers. And it holds any gaming system, blu ray players perfectly, with a little extra space.

Looks great, well built (feels really sturdy). Looks great, well built (feels really sturdy), and easy to put together and install. Minus one star for the allen-head screws to for the mount.

Exactly what i was looking for. . First off this thing is massive. Very sturdy, deep shelves, lots of space up on top. Easy to mount and put together. Takes two people to mount this thing by the way. In the photo that is a 60 in vizio. Also on the left corner of the shelf you can see a scuff of paint missing from the wall. Because this bracket fits so tight the shelf scrapped off some of the paint off the wall when it was mounted.

Simple to put together, simple to hang the rail. 2 or 3 person job to hang, but i assembled it alone in about 45 minutes (and i’m ocd about things). Looks good cleaned up, but it was dusty on arrival, and there were scuffs on the top of the middle shelves that will be covered up by the equipment thankfully. I’ve seen other complaints about this, so they might want to take better care with their packaging procedures. It looks good on the wall and pretty stylish as well. I will second the idea of using lag bolts instead of the supplied screws, placement was much easier with the hex head lag bolts and a drill to drive them, instead of the screws and the supplied allen wrench. I had to loosen the bolts on the rail to get get the hooks to hang on it correctly, and then tighten them back, so it might be good to not completely tighten the rail to the wall. I would also second that you need a wrench when tightening the hooks onto the unit. The measurements of the shelves and weight limits are plainly written on the product description, so pay attention.

A nice piece to organize and streamline the av stuff. . I mounted this shelf above my flat screen. Had to apply some paint to the under sides (now exposed for view). Putting the ‘box’ above the flat screen means it will work even when the dog, kids or general clutter may get in the way of the remote’s signal. I put the flat screen on a wall-mount and a decor matching credenza under it. Now cabling is easy and out of sight.

Nice stand, quality could be improved. Looks very good once you get it all put together and mounted. My box came wet so some pieces were damp and also a corner looked cracked (looks like it possibly broke off and someone glued it back on) and another the black was peeling off, but i didn’t even noticed until i had it almost all put together and at that point was past taking it apart and trying to send it back (the packaging was also pretty damaged). The bolts that come with it to mount the track to the studs are very cheap and i had to go purchase different ones which held up a lot better. It’s also a little tricky to mount the actual stand onto the track just right but once you get it on there it’s not going to fall off. I wish it hid the cords a little better but overall i’m satisfied with it and would buy it again but i believe the price is a little steep for the quality.

When i started to put it together i was a little concerned about the durability. The shelf to hide the power cords is a little tight to feed the cords through. However, we love it and have 2 friends who have also bought one after seeing ours.

No regrets but i gotta a story to tell. The pluses and suggestions:the directions and pictures are clearly presented; the materials are solid; effectively packaged with no damage on arrival; the piece is sturdy, streamlined, modern and won’t eat up valuable real estate in your room. Fairly easy to construct the piece, just read all the directions through once and then follow the directions for each segment. I placed similar screws and bolts in small cups and placed on a cookie sheet for easy retrieval as we built the piece. The mounting takes time, patience, and careful placement into studs, etc. When we drilled into a stud, we hit an electric wire. Shorted out many outlets in the house, on labor day weekend. The chances of hitting a wire with a drill is probably small, right?.An electrician got us back in business.

It looks very nice on my wall under our wall-mounted tv. It looks very nice on my wall under our wall-mounted tv. The cords tuck away, but didn’t all quite fit. We wanted to conceal the wires from three components (dvd player, cable box, and surround sound unit), along with the cable wire and surge protector, but there was not enough room. I bought three baskets to place under the unit, which hide the cords well. I still love it and like how it lots of our dvds (96 is how many fit) without making it look like a ‘dvd display’. It’s a rather heavy and sturdy unit. I put it together by myself easily, but needed my husband and teenage daughter’s help to lift it into place. Yes, i would recommend this console to anyone who wants a neat, clean look.

Worked perfectly and was easy to assemble. Worked perfectly and was easy to assemble and install. The component area is open in the back which allows the wires and the wall to show. I bought a piece of black foam board and cut out pieces to place in back which resolved this issue.

It fits on the wall under my tv. Was easy to install, looks good, matches other furniture. In addition to the cable channeling, you can also hide the surge protector up beneath it for a really neat look. Honestly, not a ton of storage space for dvds and games but just enough for my collection. Installed into two studs with two additional molly bolts (not included), the wall will come down before this sucker. Oh, one other thing: although it certainly seems sturdy enough, the instructions explicitly say not to stand a tv on it (as shown in the picture); the tv is supposed to be wall mounted as well.

Very nice shelf for the price. Very nice shelf for the price. Good quality, and amazingly the instructions were easy to understand (some are more confusing than not), and amazing again, every peace of hardware was all there . It is very nice looking on my wall, and i am able to easily hide the cables and cords, making for a little more organized look. There are slots made in the back of the shelving, for your cables or cords to easily pass through. For the price, it is very nice and happy i purchased this unit . I highly recommend, and saves on floor space as i do have it above the floor.

It is a combination of fiber-board and some particle board, but goes together well, is very sturdy and finally some engineer came up with an excellent hook (4 on the unit) and rail (on the wall) system to mount it. I used carpenters glue on all the joints when i put it together and wipe off the excess with a damp paper towel. This thing will never come apart (certainly don’t glue it if you think you will disassemble). I order this one because the component openings are 1′ taller than the competitor and my amp just fits into this one perfectly. I also sacrifice one of the lower dvd compartments to mount my large back-up power unit. I cut a hole in the top corner for all the power plugs and being all the cords and the unit are black you hardly notice it.

A great value for a unique product. . I was looking for a tv stand/entertainment console for a small ‘mancave’ in my basement. I didn’t want a large clunky piece of wood hogging most of the floor. So i researched this stand and read reviews for the other identical products on amazon. Considering most 60′ stands of high quality are $400 i thought this was worth a shot. I bought a tv wall mount and figured to install this under it. The item came in a predictably large box about 65 pounds. I took it apart and noticed no real structural damage. The parts are partical board with laminated top finishes as expected for a cheap piece of furniture.

Had it for years now and its. Had it for years now and its holding up well. Fairly good quality and doesnt make our small room seem so small but gives us a place for all our av equipment. Wires can be tucked up behind the lower cuby to keep even the power cords out of sight.

A great unit, but a word of caution. A great unit, but a word of caution. If you have 24′ stud spacing and you have a wall-mounted tv, chances are you will be left in a situation where the stand and the tv cannot be centered with one another. This is the situation i’m in right now. The tv mount spans two studs 24′ apart, and this unit needs to span 3 studs 24′ apart. So i’ve built this thing and it’s ready to be hung on the wall, but being at the mercy of the 24′ studs, i’m doomed to having them about 6′ misaligned. For me, this just doesn’t work and would look awful. Anyway, there are no tv mounts i know of that can span 48′ (3 studs at 24′) which would allow me to adjust the tv position more than i can currently, so i’m left wondering if i can use a combination of stud mounting and drywall anchoring. This is probably the route i’ll go, and i’d just have to overdo the number of anchors to be on the safe side. However, this goes against manufacturer recommendations.

I purchased this to complement my wall mounted tv. I wanted a clean look and went for this solution. The item arrived in perfect condition. If you notice any external damage, reject the shipment and you will get another one. If any of the internal pieces are damaged, call the manufacturer and you will get replcement parts shipped for free. Assembling and mounting was very easy. Only the wall mounting part required a second person. I found the space behind the cabinet ample enough to shove in a 5-port gigabit switch and a large surge protector. I aligned the cabinet such that the power and network ports were concealed behind the cabinet.

This is a great entertainment stand. This is a great entertainment stand. I had some trouble getting the mounting bracket attached to the wall but those were strictly related to the materials i was screwing into (metal studs not wood) and not a product issue (although if there is an issue with the mounting wall screws i wouldn’t know since i didn’t use them). Anyhow, once the mounting bracket is installed properly it’s easy enough to hang alone if you’re pretty able but it’s probably easier with two. I feel really comfortable about the stability of the stand. I think it looks good, i was pretty proud of doing it all myself and i have had a lot of compliments on it. The con: the only negative is that if you don’t put it low enough you can see the wall benind and the mounting bracket through the shelving. I had to put it kind of high due to outlets being in the way (in hindsight i probably could had had an outlet behind the bottom shelf). I will probably purchase/make a very flimsy peice of wood/plastic with a matching or darker finish and put it in the back (with a cord hole) to make it look nicer.

Great piece of furniture / not shitty retail store quality. . Always a bit skeptical of buying furniture without seeing it assembled. Typically its all thing particle board that falls apart just from assembly, this is not the cast though. This is sturdy, and easily assembled. I am normally cursing and throwing things 10 minutes into assembly this was done in 40 minutes with no issues. They estimated 90 minutes to be assembled. As far as mounting it on the walls i have 16 inch stud spacing, and this was mounted with 2 screws only to get a nice alignment with my tv. I can still sit on the console with no issues. Its large enough to hold my receiver, xbox one, wii, nintendo switch, on-hub router, modem, direct tv box and both of my bookshelf speakers. I would recommend this to anyone.

This is the 2nd one of these consoles i’ve purchased. I liked the first one so much i came back for another. I live in hawaii and the package arrived 2 days after i placed the order. Unfortunately a sizable hole had been poked in the carton and the rail hooks were missing. It took a bit longer to get the replacement parts hence the 4 star review. Putting it together is a piece of cake and i had no trouble hanging it on the mounting rail. I’m a 67 year old female so the folks who say you need 2-3 people must be physically impaired or dare i say, wimps. I highly recommend getting better quality hex head wood screws to mount the rail to the studs. The supplied screws tend to snap off even with predrilling.
