Techlink PM120B Panorama TV Stand for up to 55-inch TVs, Black
Good looking stand
Easy to assemble, although I used my own tools. Did it all by myself, as nothing was very heavy. My only criticism is that the cable slots in the back are, perhaps, too small and it would be better if there were slots at the top and bottom (extra holes could be cut-out if required, or the rear panel could be left off). However, I did manage to get the mass of connecting cables (DVD player, HDD recorder, surround sound system and Wii unit) through the slots and the two gaps at the sides without too much bother. My surround sound amplifier is too high to enable the glass shelf to be fitted so I just left it off.
One thing to consider though is that the glass doors, due to the timber frame, are quite small and equipment on the bottom shelf may have to be raised up so that the infra red signal can reach through the glass. Equipment on the top shelf works fine.
All-in-all, I and my wife are very pleased with the unit and would recommend it, although for televisions larger than 47 inches, the longer model may be more appropriate (my 47 inch Sony sits comfortably).

Flat pack nightmare
Took me 3 hours to put together - and I've done a lot of flat packs in my time. Would have taken even longer if I'd used the allen keys provided, rather than my own electric screwdriver. Pages and pages of instructions. Once (finally) assembled, it does look smart, with a subtle minimal design which is good - though the materials used are nothing special for the price. And even now, not all the screws are in perfectly, and the front glass doors don't quite line up. So if you're a perfectionist, and/or not keen on the considerable task of putting this thing together, perhaps best to stay away!

Fantastic product. Took 2 of us an hour to assemble it. High quality solid finish. Easy to use Sky remote through the glass.

With the two glass doors covering the internal shelves for four pieces of equipment the unit has a very clean look to it ,rather than the open glass unit i previously used. Chrome legs lifts it off the floor slightly so looks lighter than some tv stands .
Unit needs assembly , i used my own tools but ones supplied would work , easy to do if you follow instructions systematically ,i took about an hour ,some pieces are heavy so easier for two moderately strong people!
Loss of star as Virgin remote doesn't tend to pick up signal well so i leave the door open when using it, but that might well be Virgin equipment fault not the unit asall other remotes work fine..Still prefer this as very neat when not in use, all cables hidden inside..
Definately would recommend this item.

Elegant and modern
Arrived in a flat pack. It took a short while to assemble everything. The instructions were very clear and it was fairly easy for anyone familiar with Scandinavian economy furniture.
You can see from the individual components, they are very high quality and the assembled unit looks elegant and expensive.
The IR glass is great and the shelves easily accommodate an AV receiver, HD recorder, Blu-ray etc.
I felt a little nervous buying online, without a chance to see in store first, but delighted with purchase. If you want a modernist, expensive looking stand - this is great.

Lovely looking unit
Took me 100 minutes to put together. Instructions very good and unit is designed well. At the price they should have built it though! Overall very satisfied
