    Good power solution

    Bought this along with a new 55" television that I wanted to mount on my well instead of having it sit on a TV stand. Read the reviews on this and similar products so I knew what I was getting; a two piece solution with one piece mounting in the wall lower, near an outlet, and in upper piece that would mount a few feet above the lower one. The kit provides all needed pieces and mounting instructions, was pretty easy to install; determine where your existing outlet is and where you want to mount your TV. Find a vertical space between wall studs where you will mount the 2 plastic boxes provided. Trace the outlines on the wallboard, cut out the openings. Then you can stick the boxes in and they have screw operated mounting brackets that lock them in the openings. I found it helpful to mount the top box and run my cables from the TV and top through the box into the wall opening, then fish them out the bottom wall opening and though the lower box, THEN put the lower box in the opening itself. This worked great; only comment I have is that with running power, optical video, and 3 HDMI cables, there is plenty of room in the top box, but barely enough room in the bottom. People running more cables might have problems, people running less should be fine. BTW, the bottom box comes with a built in power cable that goes up the inside of your wall opening to the top box, which has a double outlet for power. There is a little stub cable which connects the bottom box to your outlet. I'd definitely recommend this.

    No more wires!!!

    This in wall power kit will change the look of your tv setup. If you decide to put your tv on the wall and want no ugly wires showing this is probably going to be the best bang for your buck, although I thought it could be about $30 less. I do live in a townhouse and installed this on the wall that connects with the neighbor and some modification was required. Behind the wall when i sawed out the drywall there was a layer of regular drywall, then fire rated drywall, and after that insulation. Well the screws that come with the kit are too short so I had to use longer screws to screw in the plates. Also, make sure you have some fishtape or and old metal hanger because when you try to feed the HDMI wires or rca wires it will bunch up in the insulation or vapor barrier. Installation took at an hour and 15 minutes. Without having to do any mods and in an non exterior wall it probably would have been about 20 mins to install. Highly recommend this product though!!!

    Had this installed by the Geek Squad ... they set it up fine and did it in a timely manner. It is basically going to create an outlet right below your TV and then another outlet behind your mounted TV, so that from the new outlet to your TV there will be no wires. However, in order for that unit to have power, the bottom outlet still needs to have a cord run to the nearest outlet. I didn't do any research on it before buying it (bought it as I bought the mount) so I was not exactly clear on how it was going to look or that it was going to need a power cord hooked up to it. But if you are going to have something under the TV the cord can run behind it

    I picked this up when I decided to mount my 55 inch in our living room. The wife said I had to make sure the cords were hidden, or no mounting. Enter this kit. It was exactly what I needed. Easy installation due to great instructions, made for easy work. My only complaint is I had to modify the bottom outlet to accommodate the Samsung one connect plug. The opening was to small, so I had to cut part of it out to get the plug through. Everything else was gravy. Get this kit, you will be happy with the results!

    Works as advertised. Very easy to install. Took me 15 minutes at both my house and a friends house a few weeks later. Only gave 4 stars because of two nicks. First it is over priced. For what it is it should be $50. Not $100. Second is the cord that runs from the real outlet to the product outlet is a bit sloppy. Don’t know how they would fix it but it was a bit annoying. I wound up buying a smaller power cord to at cut back the sloppyness. Much better than having to run a whole new outlet though so I can’t complain

    Hides the wires as designed

    I had this installed by the Geek Squad, and it does what its supposed to - hides the wires between the wall-mounted TV and a base cabinet. However, it is very deep - if you have shallow space between the sheetrock and an underlayer, as many older homes do, this item may be too deep to use and you'll be left with a big hole cut in your wall or else you can use it but it protrudes forward. Also, keep in mind that it isn't actually an extension outlet, just a route for running the included extension cord (and non-included HDMI cables) through the wall.

    Brilliant option for hiding wires

    This is a brilliant invention. You don’t need an electrician to relocate your switch behind your tv. Any novice can cut the drywall with the template and DIY. The only negative to this is that the brace that holds the unit to the wall is just plastic so if it is over tightened, it can break. So as long as you don’t over tighten it, this is a slick and clean solution to hiding wires.

    This product works well and is easy to install. I only have one complaint. It's that the opening for the cables in the lower plug is too small to fit certain types of adapters. I am using this with a Samsung UN65KS8000FXZA. This TV has a separate box with the HDMI ports that connects to the TV with a proprietary adapter. The plug for the adapter is larger than a standard HDMI cable and doesn't fit through the opening. If the opening itself was a 2-piece you could assemble over the cords, that would be ideal.

    They product is very nice. Best buy installed it as a part of my TV installation. It's hidden nicely. Only issue was it was a single plug and I needed to plug in my Sonos play bar as well. So we had to attach a power strip to this and tie it up to the TV. Not the products fault but it was picked out by Best Buy as a part of my install of both a TV and Soundbar so a double plug should have been used. Not sure if it comes that way or not, but just double check that if you go to purchase. Otherwise it's great!

    I found this powered install TV kit to be very easy to install with clear directions and a great finished result, although it did take a good hour from start to finish. In fact, I liked it so much I bought another two for my other two TVs in the house to do those as well . . . I did give it 4 out of 5 starts just because I did feel like it was pretty expensive for what it was - $100 for a couple of plastic boxes/romex seems to be a bit much - this should more like $40 at most.

    No Electrician Needed!

    My husband and I wanted to clean up the living room area and decided to mount our television. I saw this as an open box item for 50% off and scored! We thought you would have to call an electrician to hook this all up but you cut out drywall in two spots (where you want the tv and at the bottom of the wall), insert the electrical box behind the tv and then put the cord down through the bottom hole and plug it right in. There is only one visible cord and no mess!

    Good, but make sure it fits inside your TV mount

    I was pleased with the power kit for hiding cords in the wall and it worked out OK, but it was actually taller than the space between the rails on my simple flatscreen mount bracket. The rails of the bracket frame ride on the top and bottom of the outlet box. I ignored the problem and tightened down the lag bolts on the bracket. The frame bowed a bit but the TV snapped on solid and it isn't a problem. Should have got cheaper, smaller, round one I've used before.

    I just needed to run cables straight down behind the wall and this setup did the trick. Do need to cut into your wall to install. Only consideration is the holes to pass the cables through are small so if you have a lot of cables, keep this in mind. I have total of 3 HDMI and 1 digital optical cables running though it.

    Does what it needs to do

    There are many options out there for running your HTDV cables in-wall, and this one seemed like one of the better ones, though it was more expensive than just picking up some basic wall plates. It does its job well, and is easy to install with the included cutting templates. The power cable is stiff and easy enough to run through the wall, but including a cable puller (as I have seen in some competing kits) for running other AV cables would have been a nice bonus.

    Does the Job, but too small for Samsung U-connect

    Does the job works great and easy to install. Only problem was the bottom piece that sits above the outlet is too small for the u-connect cord head that the newer Samsung TVs use. It's bigger then an HDMI cable. I had to cut the inner box to allow the cable to fit in. It's hidden and you can't tell I cut it, but I wish the bottom outlet piece was bigger to accommodate lager cords. I have a KS8000 Samsung.

    Good product, easy to install

    I like this product because it avoids having to reroute electrical wiring through the wall to the back of the wall-mounted TV. Only issue is the opening in the lower faceplate is way too small. With 4-5 HDMI cables, optical cable and Ethernet cable coming from the TV, they all can't fit through the provided opening. I'm just leaving that faceplate off, which unfortunately means the power cord is not as cleanly installed as it could be.

    Very good mount, but cables might interfere

    I purchased this mount to hang my TV, hoping to have a very flat profile on the wall. However, due to the cables from the TV etc. I ended up having to use the spacers (included), which brought it farther from the wall. If your sole reason for purchasing this mount is for the low profile, be aware that all the cables might not fit between it and the TV. Otherwise, I recommend this mount.

    This outlet is super easy to install. Had it installed in about 20 minutes. makes every thing look professionally installed and clean looking. I do have one complaint, the bottom outlet does not look like the outlet pictured on the box or instructions. It does have a face plate but the opening is larger than I prefer. I guess its not a big deal since it will not be visible anyways.

    Hides wiring inside wall

    This item saves calling an electrician to put in a plug behind flat screen to hide power cord in wall. This is a great upgrade to entertainment area. Cord exits wall behind entertainment center cabinet. This is valuable in states where codes require shielded wiring hidden in walls. This actually should always be done to avoid fires anyway. The power cord interring and exiting the wall is heavily shieded.

    This was recommended to me by the associate for ease of installation and I can tell you that it was super easy. The kit includes everything you need except for a drywall saw and screwdriver. This kit makes hiding everything behind the wall super simple and the end result is very clean. I have gotten quite a few positive comments on how good it looks. Highly recommend.
