      Customer comments about Slim 66x18 24h Media Console:

      Having ordered other slim tables which arrived in pristine condition, it was a surprise that this piece arrived absolutely filthy, like it was stored in Aunt Dorothy's coal cellar. It took tons of paper towels and Windex to clean the surfaces (every surface including the underside). Literally like coal dust. Fortunately the finish was fine underneath. No scratches. Looks great. Stores all our components, television and a few large books plus some glass and still looks minimalist which is the look we wanted. It's sturdy, and plenty large enough for what we wanted. Highly recommended, but be sure to check to see if it needs a wipe down before placing objects on it and don't wear anything light color. Delivery was early, professional and easy. No complaints, except a minor one which is that the furniture, no matter what it is, should arrive clean and ready to use.

              Customer comments about Slim 54x18 24h Media Console:

              This unit is perfect for my 50" flat-panel TV and components. It is far more solid and balanced than I imagined (it was not available in the showroom). Wires are rendered invisible by using black conduit and along the uprights and zip ties along the horizontal-- it now looks clean and uncluttered.

              From a design perspective, it blends with the rest of my decor without dominating the room.

              I had virtually no off-gassing, and I'm highly sensitive to odors. I couldn't be happier with this purchase, or with R&B's customer service.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was prompt, courteous, and professional. I wish all service providers were like this crew!

                  We use this for toy storage in our kid's play room. It is great because it has slim lines and does not take up a lot of space. It is a much better alternative to most "kids" storage furniture.

                    I was amazed just how difficult it is to find home theater display/storage consoles that aren't hideously ugly and overpriced. A lot of mass market furniture makers aren't paying attention to what's going on with media components nowadays and the fact that walls often have air vents. Room&Board's Slim Media Console offers a great sleek look for a great price. And the other Slim components make perfect coordinating side and coffee tables. R&B's customer service [...] is outstanding, too.

                      This table holds all of our stereo components and the DirecTV box easily. It does not take up much space and does not dominate the room, but rather blends in nicely as it does its job. It also holds our 40" LCD TV easily. I really cannot think of any cons, unless you want a media stand with doors, but I don't mind having the components showing.

                        The Media Console in natural black steel - does it scratch very easily? Sometimes steel that is painted or glazed or sprayed with a laquer shows every singe scrape and mark.

                          A:

                          The color on our Natural Steel collection is the result of the oxidation process as the steel cools during fabrication. It is mostly black but may have slight variations. The pieces are then protected with clear lacquer. Like any painted surface, it is possible to scratch the surface. Restoration is relatively easy to do yourself, and will result in a steel piece that should look pristine for a lifetime.

                        Q:

                        Hello,

                        This item is listed as 24h. I'm assuming this means 24" in height but that would be really short. Additionally, in the environmental photo, there's a TV on top of it which looks like the right viewing height if one was sitting on a sofa, which also alludes it to be higher than 24". Do you have the exact height measurement for this?

                        Thank you very much,

                          We don't have weight capacity details but can assure you that the material is very sturdy. It is designed as a media shelf and you could confidently fill it full with equipment without risking damage or bending shelves.
