This review is from: Datacomm 50-3332-WH-KIT Flat Panel TV Cable Organizer Kit - White (Electronics)
I have an extensive entertainment set up (37" Flat screen, DVD player, surround sound system, Xbox 360 slim,1TB external hard drive for the 360 <home movies>, Direct TV box, kereoke machine and a few other things). This means I have a multitude of wires, cables, and power cords. I have tried the industrial cable covers and hide-a-ways, but those are bulky and create issues themselves. I work (and live onsite) in the hospitality industry, so I am always looking for better home improvement for myself and to benefit my guests. I choose the double-gang kit for the multitude of cables I have, still utilizing a cover strip for power cords, and decided to see how easy this might be to do myself.
Aside from the time deciding placement and moving furniture, this installation took 24 minutes for both plates. Thats marking, cutting, trimming, putting in the drywall screws and attaching the outside plates. Clean up took a bit longer, suggest you use a tarp or plastic to catch most of the mess so you can vacume right away and be done.
I like the look and how this does not devalue the property. I can see how this would be a great idea for homeowners, as this would only increase the value of the home. We are looking into putting the single gang plates in our rooms here to hide the cables and cords when we install more flatscreens.
