Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by buggydriver Nice addition to my living room
This media console is very nice. I have a 42" plasma (1st generation and somewhat heavy), and it appears to be up to the task. The construction is quality and it seems very sturdy. I love that it has an extra foot in the middle to support the weight and keep the shelf from sagging; wise idea.
It didn't take me long to assemble - but I'm good at these types of projects. The console has plastic sliders on the bottom so that it moves easily across carpet, too. I put baskets on the bottom shelf and it's terrific - just like drawers - only more character! The price was perfect and much nicer than the other stuff I've seen out there with paper veneer. A way better value!
The parts come in a sealed packet and everything is labeled individually and clearly. It also came with a pouch containing extra parts; very nicely packaged! The only con is that it has two ridiculous stickers on it that require goo-gone to get the adhesive residue off. One is on the bottom shelf and huge.... so prepare to peel and then remove residue. Stupid place to put it. The other was smaller, and I was able to put the piece facing the back, but it just seemed goofy to put the "warning" labels on the finished side of the furniture.
However, all in all, you will love this if you like the styling. I bought on-line and picked up in the store. So easy! I highly recommend it!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by VCjr Easy to assemble, some minor imperfections on back corners and lable(s) very hard to remove.
Overall pleased with product itself. Only thing I would like to see different is to have the label placed with a lighter adhesive. Label was very, very hard to remove requiring a razor to be used which sratched the surface slightly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SuperMari0 Very strudy and extremly easy to assemble.
I love this media stand. It's able to my 70" tv with no problem and I've got the tall shelf and a short shelf. I bought the stand online and shelfs from two diffrent stores and they still match perfectly. Next paycheck i'm getting the desk too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HDcustomer A handsome, solid piece of furniture
This console was easy to assemble and is a heavy, solid, sturdy unit that looks great along with the Brexley tall bookcases and writing desk in my living room. Very well packed in the shipping box to prevent damage, clear assembly directions, quality components, solid wood with no veneers. Excellent value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Susal Nice looking piece and sturdy
We got the chestnut Brexley Media Console. Nice color - wish I could find more furniture in that color. My husband assembled it, but it wasn't hard. The box contained all the required parts and all of the holes were machined correctly. One of the boards was mislabeled to the instructions, but it was easy enough to figure out and get put together. Took about an hour. Used own tools, although it wasn't necessary, but they're nicer than the little allen wrenches included in the packaging. Still, if you don't have your own, everything's included in the packaging.
It looks very nice all assembled. It's not real wood, but it's sturdy and is a good simulation. We have a 47" LED flat panel TV on it w/no problems - it could have a 55" I think.
The only annoying thing was that it had a couple of manufacturer stickers on it on the shelving that showed. They were kind of a pain to get off without damaging the finish. But gentle scraping with a fingernail combined with rubbing it with an oil-based wood polish on a chamois did the job in about 15 minutes.
Quite happy with this purchase. Wish they made a cocktail table that had a couple of drawers in it instead of the minimalist bench that passes for a coffee table. Don't like that one, but really do like the media console, the entryway bench and the nesting tables in this color and style.

Bought it to use in my preschool to hold toys. Will use later for the tv. Beautiful, solid and easy to clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by marebear729 Great find and great buy!
I searched everywhere for a decent quality tv stand without spending a lot of money, this was absolutely perfect! Very high quality and under $100, this is a steal! I was so happy and excited to put it together that I messed up a few steps but the construction is solid as if I followed the instructions correctly. Looks high end without breaking the bank. BUY IT!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ADLR good for price
Attractive. Matches other furniture in the Brexly line. Nice color. Sturdy for under $90. Fits my 50 inch flat screen. Easy to put together
However, arrived with a long scratch, some small scratches and a niche but after I put it together decided too pretty but too bulky to take back to the store, after all it was under $90. Concerned about it easily scratching in future. Must strategically place the game console and dvd player.
