The stand turned up in a very heavy box and this is only partly due to the stand itself - there was wood completely encasing the item to prevent damage (if only all manufacturers thought of this!). The instructions were very easy to follow and only took a few moments to assemble. The quality of the glass and chrome legs are very good and I have no doubt they have hold the weight of larger TV's (I have a 37" Panasonic plasma). Looks fantastic assembled and a bargain for the price.
Negatives? Very few. The only reason this doesn't have a 5* is the cable tidy at the back is only made of plastic and looks a little cheap compared to the rest of the items. Also, the glue used for some stickers proved to be very difficult to remove.
Would still highly rate this item to anyone else.
