Rated 5 out of 5 by markyj1969 AVF TV Stand
Got this recently in walnut, I was a bit dubious about being flat packed but I needn't have worried, good quality, sturdy and goes together nicely, took me on my own about an hour and a half, no issues with remote signal working through glass doors as mentioned in another review. The fiddliest bit was probably the glass doors but with a little patience these went on dead level. I'd definitely recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Darenh Great piece of furniture
Had this in gloss white for over a year now and it is a really well built piece of furniture. Solid, finish is still spot on and an example of how to build something properly. It looks great and i love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NPK1966 Read the Instructions
Overall this is a good, stylish, well built product but be careful when putting it together.
Having read reviews elsewhere I was aware the doors could be tricky - they were. There is no adjustment in the door hinges to align the doors squarely with the front of the stand. The only adjustment is in the actual frame stand itself. Therefore you need to make sure you do NOT tighten up all the screws of the frame until everything is in place and aligned. I failed to do this and ended up loosening joints to try and create some room for adjustment. I got close but one door isn't completely true.
The unit does look good (I know this is a personal thing) but as it is gloss black, it does attract dust. Also, whilst the doors do allow for remote controls still to be used on equipment stored behind them, I experienced a definite lack of responsiveness from my Freesat box when placed inside the lower section. Yes, it does work, but I have to be slow and deliberate when pressing buttons on the remote. So much so that I am considering an infrared extender as it gets a little frustrating when trying to zip through menu screens and nothing happens.
One minor groan. The doors hinges come with small white plastic plugs in which the door hinges sit. Not overly obvious (you can see them if you look) but why not black ones? Given the quality of the rest of the components, I was surprised at this. So much so I thought it might be a mistake until I checked the Walnut version in store which also had white plugs. Mmmm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by James1972 Good looking TV stand
I bought this after Christmas. Initially I was a bit concerned as it seemed a lot for flatpack, but I'm really happy I paid extra now.
The walnut looks great and it feels really solid once it's been assembled.

Bought this product as we had got AVF before; it was easy to put together and looks good with our TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Banbury146 Well designed and put together.
I was initially daunted by the size of the box and expected it to take an age to build. I couldn't have been more wrong! It went together without a hitch, the parts and well made and have a very sturdy look to them. It fits my TV perfectly and is an excellent addition to the living room furniture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rowberme Good, Easy to build Product
Excellent service and delivery from John Lewis again. Purchased the Walnut version looks excellent and a very good design. Very curved at rear and sides, ideal for placing in a corner and a gently curved around the front. Quality of the Walnut finish is variable, do not expect it to be like a piece of expensive furniture. To get the shape and finish various type of woods are used to achieve the overall effect. Look closely at the front curved bars made from plywood and on the edges you can see the different plys coloured over not a big problem but this would not occur with furniture. Excellent packaging and easy to build but make sure you fully read the instructions and what part goes where, take your time. Only tighten screws when you are at the stage where you are ready to fit the glass items. When you come to fit the glass doors you need to be relaxed and patient they are a real pain to fit and get right, but when done look good and Remote Control Infra-Red signals work fine through the glass. Finally had a couple of issues with missing parts and a damaged front curved bar. I must say that the Customer Service from AVF in Telford was second to none. Got to talk to a knowledgeable human being straight away who fully understood their products and the required parts were Couriered for next day delivery, absolutely remarkable.
