Rated 5 out of 5 by DIYDON Handsome, Sturdy, Exactly As Described
I have the 31 inch version in light mission. It is a solid, well made and well finished piece. Had no problems with assembly as one person. It will be wobbly if you don't make sure to get the screws seated in all the way. It takes a bit of elbow grease but the result is solid as a rock. I found it helpful to have a small flashlight on hand to use in marrying screws to inner pilot holes. Am using it as a stand for a 26 inch flatscreen tv with audio/visual components and cds on the shelves below. Couldn't be happier with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 Really lovely piece of funiture
I am so pleased with this console. Our TV is wall mounted so I wanted an attractive way to store DVD player etc. The shelves are deep enough and it looks great. I comes up high enough so that there isn't a big gap between the TV and the top of the shelf, about 12 inches. easy to assemble and high quality workmanship for a reasonable price, not an easy to find combination these days.(:

Rated 3 out of 5 by TJang not stable
It is a beautiful piece. After putting together, the whole thing is still shaky when applied small push. I place it against a wall, looks great, but not stable. I am afraid that it won't stand the smallest earthquake in California.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SFsilver the perfect fit
The 42" Mission console arrived in 10 days and only took about 45 minutes to assemble, I had no trouble! The piece fits the space I purchased it for and looks great.Holds everything as I had hoped. I have since ordered two more pieces from the mission collection. Thanks L L Bean for great service and great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jwilcoxino Excellent piece
I purchased this after reading the reviews and being aware that the dimensions of the shelves are for CDs. Well, I don't own any CDs. I use the center shelves for games and Blu-ray and the CD shelves for storing candles and other odds and ends.
This is a beautiful piece of furniture and a great addition to my rustic man cave!

Rated 4 out of 5 by motherof5 good looking compact shelf unit
Easy to assemble, quality wood components, handsome design. Only complaint is that I wish the shelves were infinitely adjustable. As it stands now, you can use all of the shelves or eliminate any of the side ones. My plan was to use them all, but I need to be able to adjust the distance between according to height need...and there are no extra holes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by onestopshop Nice piece of furniture
I bought the console and was very happy with it especially after reading the reviews. It does require two people to put together but is very sturdy and attractive when completed. Other reviews states that the side shelves are too small to hold books but all that has to be done is to put in fewer side shelves which is not a problem and then taller books are easily accommodated. I have a "cottage size" home and this piece fits perfectly in the dining room. I am very happy with my purchase. Thanks LLBean.

So disappointed after waiting four weeks for delivery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wyle A very nice piece, but...
The 'Light Mission' finish #as it appears on the web page# is a brownish shade. The finish of the console recieved, is an orangish shade. Had I known that, I would have ordered the darker finish. Other than that, the console is an excellent buy and is very easy to assemble #phillips head screwdriver and hammer#.

Rated 3 out of 5 by nudaily slightly disappointed
I chose this item for the Mission style and that it is made in USA and of real wood!! I use it as a TV console and was able to store my cd player (had to leave out one middle shelf) and my dvd player on as well which is what I hoped for! It stores cd/dvds well but side shelves too small for much else. The drawer does not pull out straight and feels a little flimsy but will store remotes and keys!! Dark finish and style of piece are handsome and look very nice in our paneled den, size fits in very well too. I do feel that item is overpriced a bit but am still happy with it.
