Rating: 3/5Beautiful, well made - but SHORT shelves
This review is from: Bell’O CW355 Up to 55" Espresso Curved AV Stand
Pros: This is a beautiful piece of furniture from Bell'O, with solid plywood, sleek glass and nice hardware. It's fairly easy to assemble, and is extremely sturdy and looks great.
Cons: The actual usable height of the bottom shelf is about an inch less than they claim (web site claims it's 7 5/8", but actually it's more like 6.5"). There is a metal horizontal support bar that is installed underneath the middle glass shelf, and this support bar cuts off an inch of unusable space.
This means that most A/V receivers are too tall (including mine which is now 7 years old - the newer models are even bigger) to fit on the lower or middle shelf.
The drawers are so shallow that it's not practical to keep most things in them, like DVDs, CDs or anything other than maybe a few small cables.
Other Thoughts: If you don't need to put any tall-ish equipment in this, it's a great piece of furniture. As it is, I am stuck having assembled this and cannot fit my A/V equipment inside it.
Don't believe the measurements online.
