Pros

The vast majority of buyers we read about really loved this item when they purchased it online. One buyer unpacked it and found that the blue version is not the same as the blue shown online and it was actually a bright, aqua blue. The still found it to be nice but not at all what they were expecting. Also, there was some damage that occurred in transit. It was minor damage but visible once the stand was put together. This turned out to be frustrating and made the buyer feel less likely to make such a purchase from Wayfair in the future.

Another buyer purchased this TV stand in wood with the white shelf and white doors. The pictures online had made them somewhat hesitant as the product looked a little cheap, but it looked much better and of higher quality in person and fit the mid-century modern look they were going for. Getting the doors even on the front can be a little bit of a struggle and the reviews that there are no pre-drilled holes for assembly of the doors turned out to be true, but self-tapping screws are included so no drill is needed as some of the reviews online suggest.

Finally, there is only one hole for wires above the top shelf but if you cut two additional holes (one near the bottom shelf and one behind the doors for keeping extra wires tidy), you will be good to go. The rest of the features of this stand are as mentioned and outlined in the specs and dimensions sections above.

Cons

There were numerous issues with this stand. Firstly, with regards to the delivery and overall buying experience, one buyer’s package was left out in the rain, and there was a large portion of packaging torn open, leading to damage on the top of the unit. The edges of the top were also scratched up, taking off the top coat of the stand even though this area was, in fact, securely packaged, meaning it was passed through quality control at the factory. One of the screws to attach a door was missing as well. Unfortunately, this did not seem to be one of those small screws you can skip if necessary, because the door will not function without it. You will have to improvise if it is not there.

All in all, the assembly of this item is not very difficult until you get to the doors. The instructions tell you to assemble the base and walls and add the top of the unit before adding the door hinges. If you do not have a drill, this means you will awkwardly try to attach the hinges sideways. You must add the hinges before attaching the walls to the base. This will make your life much easier.

The only opening for a media player on this product is on the top shelf. There is only one opening in the back for cables. The shelf goes all the way to the back so you cannot easily lead cables up to the opening on the shelf above. The unit is fairly sturdy and supports 50-inch TVs with speakers and gaming consoles without issue.

Overall, the unit itself is nice in theory, but negative ratings that we saw were primarily based on bad personal experiences that customers had that may be different for other customers. Packaging damage (and consequently product damage) may not be in Wayfair’s control, and this should be noted. However, there were still issues with factory damage, poor build instructions, and missing components.

Conclusion

For the most part, this is a strong and sturdy stand that is hard to beat on price. It comes at a deep discount, is tastefully outfitted with cuts and design lines, and comes with Wayfair’s unbeatable customer service. It is made of sturdy materials and is relatively easy to assemble, although there were a few customer reviews stating the contrary. Some stands have a tendency to sink, sag, or creak over time with use, but not such cases were reported with this item. With almost 600 perfect 5 scores out of 5 across roughly 1,000 reviews, this stand is a real winner and has an overall rating of 4.4. If what you are looking for is a reliable stand that comes at a competitive price and has been purchased and reviewed hundreds of times before by many satisfied customers, then look no further than the Hal TV stand by Mistana.

In closing, we do not accept money, gifts or samples from furniture companies in exchange for special consideration in the preparation of our reviews.
