Alphason Element 1250 TV Stand for TVs over 60"
Very good product
Purchased this recently to go with a 55" TV and it is a very nice and high quality unit, hiding everything whilst still being able to operate the Virgin box through the glass. IR Signal is only restricted slightly by the door being shut, providing you have a good angle there will be no problems there, it is only less responsive from a certain angle which you will soon learn, nothing an IR booster couldn't solve though.
Very easy to assemble and only took an hour to do so carefully, just ensure you toy with the screws on the doors to align them properly. Instructions are clear, and very simple to follow.
The ports at the top of the unit at the back are too small for some wires, although the port at the bottom has more than enough room, and keeps them more hidden due to being lower.
I would certainly recommend.

Really good looking product
Ordered this unit to be delivered with our new television.
It's an ideal size for 50'' set. very sleek well made unit.
Holds all our boxes and no wires showing.
Very happy with it.
The Guys who delivered it did an excellent job in
putting it together. Done in one hour(would have taken us all day).
Well done John Lewis.

missing product information
We bought this item online. We assumed it would be delivered assembled, since there was no information to the contrary on the Website. When it arrived - 50KG and flat packed - we contacted John Lewis and requested a return plus refund. We decided that our (limited) DIY skills were not up to the task. Two days later a John Lewis kitchen fitter happened to be at our house, and as he had to wait for a missing part for our new kitchen to arrive, he proposed to assemble the item, which he did - expertly and quickly. So I rang John Lewis and cancelled the return.
A happy ending: with a bit of luck - and some quite unnecessary hassle.

Alphason Element 1250 TV Stand
Good product when assembled and was easy to put together. Ports at the back for wiring are a bit too small but other than that it's sleek and looks good.

Easy to put together, had a problem with one of the parts but a replacement was sent in a couple of days. Excellent base unit for a modern look

Despite its great looks I was somewhat reluctant to order this item as it does not come fully assembled but its style and price eventually made me take the plunge. My decorator put it together on his own in twenty minutes and said that the instructions were easy to follow and that the quality of the product was excellent. It looks exactly as it does in the picture. I have had no alignment problems with the drawer / doors. However I am finding that the IR friendly doors are problematic as my Sky remote only works sporadically when trying to use it with the door closed - even if I am only a foot away from the stand! Overall though I am very pleased with the stand as it looks great.

It's a beauty and a beast
We spent ages looking for a TV cabinet with IR friendly doors as we have children. This looked perfect on the internet. When you pay hundreds for a product you dont expect it to be delivered in bitsMy husband and son spent over three hours assembling it - only to find the doors would not close and the drawer was not aligned. Luckily my husband is really good with DIY and he got the doors to close eventually. However, someone not so good, like me, would have no chance at all. Only for the DIY expert/brave.
