John Lewis Oval JL850/3BB Television Stand for TVs up to 40", Black Glass
over the moon with my new tv stand
Have recently had some decorating done and the purchase of this tv stand
gives the room a new uplift it looks brilliant and is a focas point. Viewed this at
first at John Lewis store was very impressed with this particular stand even
though they had several stands this some stood out as the one for me.

Looks Great From a Distance
From a far this product looks superb, however on closer inspection reveals niggles which echo poor manufacturing, particularly to the finish of the plastic elements on this item.
Our first unit had smudges to the gloss finish on the legs, almost like glove prints, and had clear indentations were the pieces had been clamped during the manufacturing process and was promptly replaced by another unit.
Our second unit had problems with the chrome effect parts - the paint was flaking off leaving the black plastic visible which hadn't been a problem on the other unit.
We're again awaiting on another unit (out of stock currently) with the hope this time of salvaging the good bits from both. It does feel like it completely skipped the quality control department - not what i expected from a John Lewis product.

An attractive product
Very easy to assemble and looks very attractive. Friends have commented on how good it looks. Perhaps the shelves could be fraction wider, depending on the position of the socket outlets on products it can necessitate the device sitting further forward to allow the cables to go through the central space arm holes.

Reasonable price and practical solution
I bought this for a CCTV system with small monitor, DVR and UPS.
It arrived promptly and involved a self assembly job.
Assembly instructions were adequate and it took about 15 minutes work for a competent bloke; not really for a girl though!
Result was a smart modern look in shiny black glass and chrome finish. I would have thought it was fine for a moderate sized TV in a smallish room, perhaps an apartment or bedroom.

John Lewis Oval JL850/3BB Television Stand
Excellent size for Samsung 37" TV. Good match. Sturdy shelves for DVD and Sky box.

Fits room really well
A neat tv stand which takes a 37" tv really well. Chose this one as I prefer its look to the angular/corner stands. Would have given it 5 stars but it arrived with big greasy finger marks on it which took a bit of polishing off!

Curvey is better, as it takes away the bulk. We got this for a 42" TV and it is fine. Unfortunately there is no real cable mamanegement so always a few on view through the rear. Assembly took me 15 minutes, - but I am an engineer, and the instructions were not brilliant.
Shelves wide enough for HD recorder, DVD player, Music system and sonos.

Very smart looking product
I ordered this stand as a second choice when I realised that the one I really wanted wouldn't fit my television. However, I have to say that I am really pleased with it. It is neat, well proportioned and overall, a very smart looking product. It was also easy to assemble - I just got myself organised, sorted all the parts out and then worked through it methodically. Up and running in no more than 30 mins including the prep time which I was pleased with! The only down side is the one I expected - i.e., anything in black, particularly black glass - shows the dust very quickly. But I think that's a small price to pay for such a smart looking stand.
