Nice when done, but hard to get rightA word of caution to anyone who is considering this combination - I consider myself a very handy person, but getting everything to line up, be level, and securely mounted to the wall is not for the fait of heart. The problem rests with the fact that there are several independent parts that need to be perfectly lined up for the finished product to look right. This is especially true when installing on top of carpet. I also used 3" strips of wood on the wall to provide a strong backing to lag the cabinets into. Otherwise, you will need to use wall anchors as the chance for the wall studs to line up are slim, not to mention I would question how sturdy it would be if done this way. It took me 2+ days to complete the installation with lots of finagling to get everything lined up just right.
That said, I am happy with the finished product. It seems to be very sturdy and offers tons of storage. The hinges and door hardware seem to be very well designed. A minor negative is that the gloss doors, while easy to clean, really attract dust.
The drawers and doors have integrated push-openers, so you don’t need handles or knobs and can open them with just a light push. This TV storage combination has plenty of extra storage and makes it easy to keep your living room organized. It’s easy to keep the cords from your TV and other devices out of sight but close at hand, as there are several cord outlets at the back of the TV bench. The cable outlet at the top lets cords run down smoothly into the TV bench. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/images/products/besta-tv-storage-combination-glass-doors__0347139_PE535313_S4.JPGBESTÅ TV storage combination/glass doors, black-brown, Selsviken high gloss/brown clear glasshttp://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S59194652/591.946.52IKEA$999.00
