Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Derwent Not heirloom
I did not buy this for use as a TV stand. I bought this to store artisan throws in the living room during the summer. I ordered the glass doors so the throws could be seen. The piece fits my needs and look very nice BUT it is of poor quality. My mechanically competent friend found construction was very difficult, especially relating to the dowel pegs, due to unclear and confusing instructions. Two cam locks broke. (HD replaced them quickly.) But the worst thing was that in tightening the cam locks the pegs broke through the sides of the cabinet and made holes in the exterior! Tighten gently! I am covering two of the the three holes with decorative wood pieces but I could just cry.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dcvineyard Pleasantly Surprised
I was a little concern when I first ordered this item, color and size online sometimes not the best description; but when my husband assembled it I was pleasantly surprised and very happy of the purchase. The color is lovely, the style is perfect for our home, size fantastic. The glass doors are very attractive, good storage, the swivel top great for viewing. The assembly took longer than we expected, about hour and half. I would recommend this for any room and the price is fantastic...good quality piece for the price, heavy in weight. Oh and the customer service and delivery were very efficient!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by njkc Nice looking for the money
I love how this items looks in my bedroom - for the money a very nice looking piece of furniture, nice carved detail at the top. It took me a few hours to put together, be careful of screw bolts as if they are over tightened they can break. They should give you extra bolts/nuts/dowels and screws in case some break or get lost. The only issue I had is there were a few parts that were a little cracked, I glued them back on with wood glue and it looks fine. This isnt solid wood but for the price I thinks this looks great.

There were some problems with the assembly: some pre-drilled holes were not lined up properly, the felt pads don't stick when covering the cam-bolts, and one of the magnets is not lined up properly with one of the door panels. Aside from that, it came together pretty easy and guests will never see the defects in assembly. It's perfect for the price.
The design is very simple and pretty. This is not our first item we've purchased from Home Decorators and it will certainly not be our last!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mommyof5 Looks like it came from an expensive furniture sto
I had been looking for a tv stand for a few weeks. Didn't want to spend a lot of money, but didn't want a cheap looking piece for my family room. I got home decorators catalogue and loved a few of them. Finally decided on the Dartmouth because of the swival top. So glad I did. The quality is great. The wood is very rich looking. I put it together by myself in 2 hours. I was worried about the doors lining up because with other put together furniture I have purchased in the past that was an issue. These doors look perfect. The hardware is very nice. It is very sturdy and our TV looks great on it, and the swival is a nice feature. It doesn't look like a piece that was put together in my home. I'm very happy I chose this stand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris207 Just the right size
We love the look and quality of the Dartmouth cabinet.
We actually have a large, flat screen mounted above the cabinet. We have a fabric runner on the top, and all media units on the shelf, iPads, laptop, etc. inside the glass doors. We had ordered a different unit initially, but when it was discontinued we took a chance on this one. It is sturdy, well made, and handsome.
My husband is extra clever- he said it was a moderate "pain" to assemble, but he always says that!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BShayesteh Cheap parts
The hardware bent and broke very easily and the drilled holes were at odd angles, meaning things don't fit right when you screw the parts together, like the doors don't hang correctly and meet the magnet latch. Since this cabinet is going to have a heavy TV on top of it, we are concerned that, with the poor-quality hardware, it may not support the weight.
I realize it was not an expensive cabinet but I would rather pay a little more and have a product I can trust not to become a piece of junk.
