Photo makes this look really cosy. However, the cover is thin and not as good as photo depicts. Alos, the stopper feels a bit flimsy

works great and very slim so packs away nicely. Appears well made and looks good. One little downside is its shiny black finish tends to show finger prints.

Easy to set up and gives good signal throughout our house which has solid brick walls. I needed a bit of telephone support from the manufactureer and they were very helpful. Its a bit on the large size hence only 4 stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Display faulty, 7 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived today with usual Amazon efficiency. Straight out of box and display cannot be read. when on standby - too dark, not just a bit dark but near black out. I think this is a software problem, as I bought this as a replacement for same model (2 years old) which developed same problem at turn of midnight ON 31.12.13. Coincidence? Nah....There is no fix on the manufacturer's website and no software update. AVOID.

3.0 out of 5 stars Keter Lounge Shed, 20 May 2012

Only 3 stars because quality control is poor. First, side panel arrived damaged. Keter did replace, but took them over a month to source the item and even then the replacement part was slightly damaged but I took a view on it as it was minor. Secondly, some of the holes had not been properly made and I had to drill them out. Thirdly, some of the holes on the base parts fail to line up accurately with the screw holes on adjoining parts so long term structural robustness has a question mark over it. Only time will tell. I could have scored at 2 stars but have gone for 3 as at the end of the day it looks quite good and does the job. I only hope it lasts a few years!

4.0 out of 5 stars Alphason ABRD1100BLK Ambri Series TV Stand, 27 Jan 2012

A well made product that looks good. Cannot give it full marks because the product arrived with missing screws and a faulty glass front. Alphason quickly replaced these items but its not a good advertisement for their quality control systems. Also, this is a flat pack product and the instructions are a bit thin and give no guidance on the best order of assembly. The Local TV shop (where I saw the unit on display) suggested that I screw in the hinges and especially the lever arm before puting the main pieces together. This is good advice and should be spelt out in the instructions. At the end of the day, it looks good and I am pleased with the end result. Its just a shame that Alphason failed to make it a straight forward process.

Brilliant bit of escapism. Real visual treat and great storey. Unfortunatley I have an old CRT TV and use a playstation 2 as a DVD player but still great to watch. I'll be watching again when we get our new telly!
