Good points:
Really good value for money! Looks very stylish and is of good quality. Really pleased with my purchase. Please see my comment re its stand ......
Bad points:
When buying the item, please take into account that its stand isn't in the middle, there are legs at either side, so you will need to make sure that the unit (if you're putting it on a unit) is long enough :-)

The feet on the wider models should be made inter-changeable so that a better balance could be achieved by altering the angle of the feet.
