Aquarium Stands

Does anyone use this stand? http://www.amazon.com/Aqueon-06533-E.../dp/B0055L05KY

I have no time to make one so that I can house my sump and fuge. It doesn't have doors, but I was thinking about wanting to look at my fuge like I do my tank. Any feedback would be great.

Try to find out if the stand is constructed with MDF! If it is find a different stand. MDF does not hold up to water at all
