An essential Kitchen appliance?, 29 Mar. 2012
A few weeks ago I bought a visual video sender which I was very happy with (see my other reviews) and so when I was searching form a special mother's day gift for my TV addicted Mum, I went ahead and purchased this one with some confidence.
First thing to say is that it looks fantastic in a contemporary kitchen with a lovely glossy black finish and a stainless steel front which matches other appliances. It does everything you can ask of it; TV / DVD / CD Player / Radio / Clock and the picture quality is excellent although I was a little disappointed with the sound - which lacks bass.
I also had the honour of installing it. Whilst this was easy using the template provided, it's worth mentioning a couple of things that were not obvious from the description; It is fixed by drilling through the bottom of your Kitchen cabinets and screwing into the TV from above which is easy enough but leaves the screw heads visible within the cupboard (I countersunk them which mostly hid them).
Also, and perhaps more importantly, the TV is 270mm deep which left me only 30mm to behind the unit. Its therefore difficult to gain access to the aerial point and power and other inputs after installation and almost impossible to plug in a scart cable. I recommend that you think about this before installation rather than afterwards.
Overall, Mum's really happy and when Mums happy, I'm happy.
