In addition to some cosmetic differences, which are small, I can't think of anything else that justifies the new product. Do not make the same mistake I did by ordering just the top section because it appears
Coaxial cable (like TV Cables) and Cat5 cables (like Internet Cords) are considered low voltage so they do not follow the same codes as regular electrical cables.
There is a zigzag pattern forming in the bundles Besides the shape of the wall, the extra behind won't be too much of a problem. I recommend this kit, but you can get it at a discount if you check eBay. It cost me about $30 to get two of those.

product is okay in terms of functionality, but the price is too high for it to be more than AT RETAIL, YOU'LL FIND IT AT MOST at $0. 00. It is a company that has a history of expressing decent product ideas but is plagued by a management staff that overprices almost everything they produce, which is why companies like Leviton eat them for lunch. The only time I will be glad to see Low-no. is this one of the few times I will be happy to see the star-crossed lover A CUSTOM MADE CHINESE PRODUCT, THE PRICE RANGES FROM $30 TO $50. The maximum amount is $00! It would be nice to come back if my wall weren't already open.
Our team had to cut out some plastic from the insert in order to modify it.
It is sturdy. I have only one complaint to make. For the most part, the installation was straightforward. It is likely that cutting the drywall will be the most challenging task for many. But at least this product comes with a template, so you don't have to guess where to cut it. According to the description, the product works perfectly. Including thick and sturdy cables is a nice touch. They are nice and tight on the top. Despite the many advantages of this product, there is one lack the hole for the AV cables at the bottom is rather Three walls are in the way of me Through it, you could only put rated hdmi cables, and it was fairly challenging to push the cable end However, the product is a great one. I recommend it.
My initial reaction when I took this thing out of the box was to feel intimidated. Although I am somewhat handy and I can wire basic light fixtures, I have never cut a hole in a wall. As difficult as I thought it was going to be, it really was quite easy and took me about 30 minutes to complete. The wires in my old wall mounted tv were in one of those plastic enclosures that had to be glued to the wall, but this is so It has made my life so much better. My decision was to get the two outlet version so that I could plug my TV power in and my backlight in as well. Because an old coax outlet was already mounted on the wall, I decided to use that since it was underneath the TV near the floor and I had an old coax outlet. Installing the new box involved removing the old one, which was a pain in the neck. What I learned was that outlets on the wall are generally located right next to studs. I was able to figure out where to install the plug part behind the TV using this. A template is included on the instruction card for specifying how big a hole should be. The hole behind the TV was cut above the lower outlet behind the wall so I started cutting right next to the studs, where the stud was. I wasn't scared to cut that big of a hole in the wall but the box fit in there perfectly. I was so pleased with the way it appears on the web site. I like how clean and professional it looks. It is clear to me that both plugs fit into all the spaces and aren't affected by the TV. As they weren't all that long, connecting the hdmi cables was the most challenging part. The tv had to be held up and plugged in while at the same time so we had to use the hdmi port on the side. A third person would have been needed to hold it up. As soon as the outlet was plugged in, the cord came out of the lower outlet was super short so you should make sure your cable is long enough. It was easier to buy a cable extender, rather than a longer cord (didn't want to take the TV back down. All in all, it turned out pretty well and I love it! There is nothing I don't like about it, and I totally recommend the.
The product itself is decent enough, but there is one flaw in its design that I find cable connecting the lower outlet to the power source is heavy gauge and there is a straight plug connecting it. It results in the plug sticking out from the wall by about three inches and preventing all furniture from fitting Better than a round plug with a flexible cable would have been a flat plug with a flexible cable. There was a bit of a letdown with the kit since the whole point is to give a neat finish.
I find running wires through the wall the most difficult part of the process. In my kids' rooms, I used these kits to mount the TVs. I bought two of them. So far, the setup process has been easy and it is working nicely There shouldn't be any problems. One thing to be aware of Your HDMI, Bluetooth, etc cables have to come through a small hole on the bottom outlet of the box. It will probably take you only three to five minutes to run The cables amount to four. There isn't enough room for more than that in the hole. There are two HDMI cables and an optical audio cable left in the hub, leaving little room for other cables. Hope it goes well for you!.
Having a way to cover the power cord and other cables is a great idea. Makes the appearance clean and professional. Installing our systems is only challenging if there is a problem with the walls (insulation, fire blocking, pipes, etc. ). It is convenient to have a second outlet.
We encountered some of the following problems I had a tough time finding a place besides the TV wall mount position or on a stud to put it because this thing is huge. It is so small that a HDMI cable is unable to fit through the hole in the bottom wall plate. To run the cables, we had to make another hole in the wall. There is a very stiff and girthy extension cord attached to the bottom wall plate. There is no way for our entertainment center to sit flush against Although it is overpriced, it is worth the purchase in my opinion. This is the second time I bought it.
the first time I have ever mounted a TV and it was extremely easy to set it up. Make sure that, by showing the cords with a stud finder, you don't have any obstacles preventing the cords from climbing to the bottom. I felt it was a little large, but the cable box was completely hidden by our 50" In our case, we have two HDMI cables going through and I think that you can only fit 3 more cable through the opening at the bottom. In the case of more than three cords, you would have to adjust and cut the plastic. It is possible to run only one HDMI cable and use a Hdmi Switch box to connect your other HDMI cable I wouldn't have a problem with that. If you've installed everything you need to make sure that your HDMI cords are long enough so that you don't have to feed a new one through after it's all done. I was surprised by how easy it was Take a look at the video posted by the manufacturer on this listing to see how it works.
