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.

A horrible piece of near impossible to put together furniture.
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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MamaRowe Very Disappointed
I bought this console to replace a book case. Looking at the picture, I thought books would fit on it but there is no way unless they are miniatures. The picture on the instructions shows books in the side shelves but, in reality, they are only tall enough to hold CD's. The only thing you can "store" on this is music, paperbacks and knick-knacks. Useless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jetsam Almost perfect
This piece of furniture is good looking and functional, except for a design flaw; the drawer goes off track almost every time it is pulled out, and has to be realigned. I like it, but I regret that I don't love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gusp Excellent Music Console
Perfect size, height and shelving for a portable CD player and a couple hundred CDs. Good quality wood and finish. Easy to put together. A nice addition to the rest of my Mission furniture. Makes my cabin look homey.
