Difficult to assemble, inaccurate picturesJamesThe assembly is essentially a puzzle with four different sets of instructions to piece together. What should have been a 2 hour job was extended by 1.5 hours due to inconvenient part placement that requires working in dark cubbies, awkward angling of a non-dominant hand, and the inability to adjust the height adjustment knobs while the stand is resting on the ground once the drawer sliders have been screwed in. I would not purchase this again.
Please be aware that you should zoom in to the 3D view. Looking at only the pictures of the stand in the living room, it is impossible to see the gap between shelf and the top of the pull-out drawer, which is almost an inch wide.
OKJadeIt is shorter in person. the drawers don't line up. its decent. i also bought the organizers that are in the drawers in the photos and they dont fit like they do in the photo and thats what i liked about it feel like i was bamboolzed lol
I know this Ikea quality.. But wow.TimI'm completely disappointed with the finished product after building. I know this is Ikea furniture I'm building, but I never expected the build quality to be so bad.
When I finished the assembly, it was clear that the left drawer had a large gap between it and the middle, while the right drawer was flush against the middle. What a mess. This piece of furniture isn't exactly cheap by Ikea standards, so I expected a lot more from the build quality.
In addition, it seems like Ikea has cheaped out on materials since I last built one of their pieces 5+ years ago. The metal assembly posts seemed like they were built out of the cheapest, softest aluminum. They wanted to strip with every screwdriver or drill that I used. It was really precarious getting things screwed in, and I doubt I'd have any luck with re-assembling to try to correct my crooked drawer gap problem.
Looks good and east toCharlesLooks good and east to assemble.
Does the job at a reasonable priceJohnNot too difficult to assemble, and looks good in the finish that we selected. Our 75-inch TV fits on it nicely, and the unit supports it without any sagging.
Love it, but you do not need the suspension mountRobertBeautiful unit, especially wall mounted. Would buy again. Purchased the Besta wall suspension rail and did not need it. However the holes on the back do not match up with all wall framing studs. Would rate higher, but $150 to ship it.
I wanted to like it but….NancyI wanted to like this Besta but I can’t say I do. The instructions provided were not intuitive and I was missing the hinges to install the middle door. But everything has become so messed up at this point I’m not bothering to go back to store to pick up the missing parts. I ordered the besta with the soft closing drawers but they just don’t work with the shelves I installed in the basic Besta unit. I have no idea why. Now I have a middle door and two drawers and two runners I can’t use. Also, the tiny slab that covers the back would not fit, so now I have a gaping hole in the back too. I bet it would have been cheaper to not order the drawers but I didn’t know they wouldn’t be functional. Overall, I can still use my Besta, which is good, but I definitely wasted money and time on something that should have worked but didn’t. I would only recommend this product if you’re familiar with building it or you can hire professional help.
Very Happy with PurchaseSarahI used Task Rabbit and that was a plus (I've previously put together IKEA products myself). But this is just what I hoped for, for my new TV purchase.
