Bell'O furniture question

So, I'm looking for an AV rack for my plasma and other gear. I'm currently leaning towards this bell'o I found at a local store. http://www.bello.com/index.php?parti...75&categ_id=46
It has big wife acceptance factor and looks pretty nice.
Anyone have any experience with Bell'O?
What's the build quality?
Was it hard to assemble?

Another thumbs up when it comes to Salamander designs. They are among the best looking and most practical systems I've seen and have.

I purchased a Bell'O audio tower from The Good Guys when they went out of business 3 years ago. The build quality is excellent and they are expensive compared to other brands (but worth it imho.)

Pretty sure my AV rack is Bello. I'd have to check...come to think of it I think the parents may be as well. Both have thick tempered glass, although I think my next unit will be wood based with doors and shelves.

Some of those Salamander units look nice, but after you customize it with add-ons I imagine the price will go up quickly.

Bell'o makes some nice stuff. I have a glass rack that works great for me. The glass shelves hold 50 lbs which is exactly what I need as the 805 is 50lbs.
