Rated 5 out of 5 by Eugenie1 Beautiful Entertainment Center!
The sage entertainment center arrived on 04.14.14. The color was exactly the shade depicted online. It took my fiancee approx. 1.5 hours to put it together. There was just 1 discrepancy in the instructions and 1 piece labeled incorrectly. This did not create any issues for him. I am thrilled with this entertainment center. It was packed extremely well.
My fiancee is handy but not a carpenter. It is very good quality. I almost did not buy this because of the reviews I read online before purchasing it. If you have someone in the home that is handy, this is a good purchase which you can enjoy for many years.

Very disappointed with entertainment center . 1)Wooden dowels needed were missing from parts.
2) Screws to attach end were not long enough.
3) plans showed a different method of assembly than was possible....apparently the pieces had changed and the way they were to be assembled had changed but the instructions had not been updated.
Last time I Ever buy from LL Bean .....
Very disappointing,frustrating,and apparently the way it now is from LL Bean

Overall I was satisfied. Was a little disappointed with how small the Entertainment Center was. Was very easy to put together. Just one of the screws that did not want to fit. I have been a customer of LL Bean since the 70's, and most everything I have ever purchased was of quality. LL Bean's worst is everybody elses best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jar240 Beautiful entertainment center, but parts missing
First of all, this really is a beautiful entertainment center once it's assembled. It looks just like the photo. I asked a professional handyman to assemble it, which is a good thing, because the dowels were missing and the screws were stripped so could not be used. He was able to use his own parts to put it together, but it took some extra time. The LL Bean customer service people were nice about giving me a partial refund because of the missing parts and extra assembly time that I had to pay for, which I appreciated.

We love the entertainment center. It really fit where we wanted it. We have a mantle that it matched perfectly. We had no trouble putting it together.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MarkinNewBern Missing parts, bad design
The unit had missing parts that were not installed at the factory. As well, it was designed as an entertainment unit but the back panel had no provision for air flow and that is bad news for electronics, such as a receiver. There were errors in the instructions.

Finally, a console that fits my room! I ordered the ivory color and I do like the finish. Assembly was longer than an hour....the back panel needed to have more holes drilled out to accommodate the wiring from our cable box. The only negative was that the doors could have been better fitting. There seems to be more of a gap between the door and frame on one side. I did not relish the idea of dismantling the unit and repackaging the unit. If it had adjustable hinges that would have taken care of the issue.

Of course, we could probably have found something already assembled and closer to home, but this is the look we wanted and couldn't find it locally. There were similar items online, but we've always trusted LL's quality and there is the easy return factor. I purchased a bathroom cabinet with the same cottage look from another online vendor and the quality just isn't the same.
This item is actually better built (i.e. heftier and sturdier) than I expected. Assembly was fairly simple. Instructions pretty easy to understand.
The wife is happy and as the Chinese say, "Happy wife, happy life!" Good enough.
