Materials

It’s important that you know the materials used for this beautiful credenza.

First, the wood you’ll get is a veneer finished engineered wood. There are several kinds of engineered wood, and this one is a particle fiberboard in a veneer finish. This is the reason it doesn’t cost that much even though it looks so elegant and feels like they made everything with solid wood. Well, just to give you an idea, the price is just around $250.00. Meaning, it’s not as expensive as you think it is.

Each board is thick and feels solid. The manufacturer mentioned that it could support up to 95 pounds of weight. We think this is a great weight to handle not only your TV but also other things you want to put at the top of this Media Stand.

What we don’t like about this kind of wood is, when it gets stuck in a warehouse, the quality of the wood weakens. Or when it bumps to each other while in transit, it chips out. There might be a slight chance that you’ll receive a damaged part. But we are not saying you will, we’re just stating the possibility, so you’ll know the things that might happen.

Well, there are more positive reviews and ratings for this TV Stand, rather than complaints. So we are still positive you should trust it, and that’s why we do.

Second, you’ll love the tempered glass each cabinet door has. It’s tinted, but it doesn’t hide everything inside because you could still see the silhouette of each item you’ll place in it from the outside.

Third, the knobs are solid and work well with each door. By the way, the color is far lighter than the veneer finish. If you think you want a darker colored knob to match the Select Cherry it carries, you can replace it since it’s replaceable. It uses standard-sized screws, which means it will be easier for you to find a universal knob in the market.

Design

This TV Stand got style, to be honest. Its wood carve makes it classy, and if only they made it in solid wood, it might cost so much.

It doesn’t feel flat, instead, each corner has a wood design you’ll surely love. Since this is a credenza, you’ll not get feet on this Sauder Palladia Entertainment Credenza. It lays flat on the floor. But, we’ve seen several customers’ online who installed furniture casters. We like the idea because this thing is heavy on its 122 pounds’ weight. You’ll need someone’s help when you want to move it around, so the caster will do the job for you.

The tinted tempered glass says something, too. Even the beveled edges give character to this one. You’ll like the effect of the tint on the glass. It won’t let you see everything inside immediately, which is nice because it won’t reveal the things you put there in just one look, right? But, what’s great about this glass is, you could display your things (still visible to the eyes) without it getting dusty.

Well, this works not only as a Media Stand, but you could also use it as your console table. Which means, if you still need more storage for your living room, this will do the job for you. The thing is, it’s huge for a console table, right?

By the way, we noticed that the veneer gets scratches easily. So it’s better if you have a wood marker beside you all the time to conceal the possible scratches it might get.

Cabinets and Shelves

The highlight of this Media Cabinet is not only the wide top for your television but also the cabinets and shelves under it.

The center portion is spacious and divided into two shelves. These shelves are adjustable, which gives you the freedom on how you want to play with the height of each shelf. Aside from that, you are also free to remove it if you need more space for your things. That’s a great feature, isn’t it?

Here is the dimension of the center storage: 18.5″W x 20.5″H

You’ll not only see the adjustable shelf feature in its center portion, but you’ll also get that in its cabinets (both left and right). Just like the shelves in the center storage, you are also free to move or remove the shelf whenever you want.

While this is the dimension of each cabinet: 18″W x 16″D x 20.5″H

Also, look at how deep the storage is for each portion, it’s 16 inches (more than a foot). There’s a lot of room inside.

Punch Outs

It’s important that the TV Stand we will purchase has enough punch outs, right? Why? Because it will help us organize the wires of our media appliances.

Now, how many punch out does this credenza has? There are seven round cuts, three in the middle storage and two on each cabinet. Well, this number of cutouts are enough to accommodate all the media appliances we will store on this cabinet. But the thing we noticed about the round cuts is, it’s not that big, yet still enough though.

Since Bluetooth Connection is our new guy now, we might not need wire connection that much, unlike a long time ago, right? So, it doesn’t really matter if the round cuts are big or not.

Dimensions

We’ve already mentioned to you the center and cabinets’ dimension, now we will talk about the overall dimension of this Sauder Palladia Entertainment Credenza.

Overall dimension is 59.50″L x 18.875″W x 28.50″H.

Almost 5 feet long credenza? Wow! That’s more than what a normal household needs, right? But of course, nowadays, having a huge television set is not a luxury anymore. More of a must, so you’ll experience a better viewing.

Since it’s 5 feet long, we are positive enough it could accommodate a 65-inch wide television. They said you can only put a 60-inch wide TV, but we say a 65-inch wide because we tried it.

Assembly

First, they packed it in one box, and they only do curbside delivery. This means you need to find someone to help you out on the day of delivery.

Aside from it being heavy, there are also a lot of parts you need to screw to each other. Please be careful with each twist of your screw because it might damage the fiberboard.
