4.0 out of 5 stars I'll be back with the 5th star in 2035!, 24 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm deliberately holding back on the 5th star, on the grounds that the unit I've just replaced has given around 20 years good service. I'll be back with the 5th star in 2035! OK, I'm being deliberately fecitious, but in truth, for an item like this, longevity and reliability are both pretty crucial features if it's functionality, to say nothing of a measure of it's quality, so I'll reserve at least some judgement. Anyhow, great product so far. After I'd wrestled the old unit down from the ceiling, fitting this one took about 1.5 hours. Straightforward enough with a little planning. The unit does seem well made, the rail assembly being pretty bomb proof. It's considerably lighter than the old Chamberlain unit it replaced and certainly looks nicer - the drive belt, etc being all but hidden from view and the motor unit far more imaginative than a plain metal box. The really noticeable differences come on startup: soooo quiet! I daren't use the old one much after about 10pm because it would wake everyone in the house up. This one is barely audible outside of the garage itself. The slowing down at the start and end of cycles is a nice touch, as, if nothing else, it gives you more time to exit if you use the wall mounted switch. The safety sensing is clearly far more advanced than the old unit too: I placed a piece of the polystyrene packaging in its path, which was barely dented, based on the resistance needed to stop the old unit, I was expecting obliteration. All in all, so far at least, I'm a very happy camper! See you in 20 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Significant number of extra channels now available., 21 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So far, so good - certainly cheaper than a whole new antenna installation. 95% signal on all 3 TVs that I'm running from this unit, on an older style 'analogue' antenna? Longest cable runs are around 20M. Significant number of extra channels now available.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very solid indeed., 21 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very solid indeed. I'd be quite happy to put two or three times the weight of my Sony 32" TV onto this mount. My slight issue is that, despite VERY careful positioning of the wall plate with a spirit level, which I've checked since completing the job, the TV isn't quite level and there is no adjustment available on the bracket itself.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the price these tables are very nice indeed., 21 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the price these tables are very nice indeed. I struggled to find anything that was just the right size for bedside tables in our new bedroom. The build quality is as good as any flat pack furniture I've previously assembled. My only gripe is that the manufacturers take on 'walnut' is quite different from just about everyone else's, but I'm happy to keep despite them not being a particularly good colour match with other furnishings in the room.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just how I like audio gear!, 21 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just how I like audio gear - R&D put into the sound and build quality rather than a trillion rubbish user options and flashing thingies. This unit is proper loud, without struggling in the slightest, so there's obviously stacks of headroom. The sound is reassuringly uncoloured and pretty good for music as well as TV audio. Only had for a couple of months, but very chuffed so far! I've never had full surround, so I can't compare, but this unit completely changes the experience of watching a flat screen TV, even one with better than average built in speakers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Certainly cheaper than a new baby monitor., 21 July 2015

If this one lasts as long as the previous unit, I'll be a happy camper. Certainly cheaper than a new baby monitor.

Not the most exciting purchase in the world. However it works extremely well and gives multiple options for vesa mounting. Efficiently designed and keeps additional weight to a minimum. Instructions are clear. Seller dispatched quickly.

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Delivery was quick, product at a competitive price. Can't think what else to say really - find it hard to get excited about a CAT 5 port.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars on Every Count!, 21 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is exactly what I need for creating 'table top video lessons', recorded with my iPad. It's sturdy, soI have no worries for the safety of my device; it's capable of being put into almost any position; it's easy to use and it's great for my iPad Air including case! Delivery was prompt, despite it being a few days before Christmas and the seller 'Oxford a Street' replied to my request for a VAT receipt within 12 hours! Marvellous!
