I have the Fillmore 48" component stand already, so I bought this media storage shelf so it would match. I assembled this myself, taking 45 minutes. If 2 people were assembling as recommended, it would be easier because it is a bit bulky for one person.
Pros: Design has a very clean look. Well-packed and little chance of damage during shipping
Cons: Instructions are very basic. They show a Sonax cam lock system which does not apply to this model at all. Also, there is a reference to Hardware #150-671 (2 plastic clips) that do not show where they go at all. After reading other reviews, they are 'bookends' to hold movies up. Sonax should really send a small amount of touch up paint with all of there products. They are basic, look nice, but in my experience are susceptible to chips/scratches easily.
