    Sturdy Shelf!

    I found this item to be very easy to mount, with clear instructions included. It is rock-solid sturdy and surprisingly roomy. I've got a Uverse DVR, Wireless Transmitter Modem, AppleTV, Phone and VOIP box on it. While the cable management chanel at the back of the unit seems like a good idea, it is not even close to being wide or deep enough to handle all the wiring. However, all wires can be neatly bound and mostly hidden behind the equipment. My tips: replace long cables with shortest possible versions where eve possible and use self-drilling 75 lb. drywall anchors if not hitting a stud when mounting.

    This was the perfect shelf for my Epson 2045. Unfortunately I had to switch to an Epson 3000 (14.9 lbs) and it just barely fit and I was worried because it looked like it was bending under the weight. Sanus told me not to worry so it could've been fine but I ended up changing the shelf to something that supported 30 lbs and I feel much more comfortable. That said, it was good for my Epson 2045. No height adjustment, but the tray itself could be gently rotated in case you had a slight tilt in your installation. Was handy but at the same time was always fussing with it and kids could mess it up.

    Good idea, depending on mounting location

    In my case, the Sanus shelf was mounted beneath the TV , about 4 1/2 inches above the fire place mantle. We put a couple of re-enforcing 2x4's between the shelf and the fire place mantle to keep the shelf level after the set box was placed on the shelf. The TV set boxes are a little bit too heavy and, unless there is re-enforcement of some kind, it is difficult to tell if the shelf will lose its anchoring , Depending on the mounting site, I would recommend this shelf, because it does save space. The shelf does stick out from the mounting wall a bit, but that is because of the size of the set boxes.

    Convenient way to shelve components.

    I needed a shelf to support a couple of lightweight components in a certain location and this shelf filled the bill without taking up floor space like a regular component rack. It is a contemporary, clean looking way to go if that is what you are after, but I would be concerned about using it in a high traffic area and have some concerns about kids hanging on it and tearing it off the wall. I may replace it and use it in another more private area as a result, but to get me where I needed to go with this home theater install it was a good choice, at least for temporary use.

    I liked this unit for our purposes. Since we were mounting into a ceramic block wall, we did not use any of the supplied anchors, but used units we already had that were compatible with the wall. When installed it looked good and worked well for our needs. Our lab tech bought a two-shelf model and had trouble with the "butterfly" anchors supplied not fitting any of the screws supplied. Had to go to the hardware store to finish installation. The cable management area would not allow running her cables (too small). When finished she agreed the unit looked nice, and worked well.

    The reason I bought this wall shelf is because I wanted to hide the four outlet and cable wires that hang down from the TV. The trouble is, the plastic casing that conceals the wires is too short. As a result it only hides 70% of the wires. If it had been only 8 inches longer I would have given it five stars. Additionally, it is a little pricey.

    This shelf easily attaches to the wall with 4 simple screws. Fasten to a stud, no stud or in concrete brick, the kit has all you need. It really looks sharp and organized. Blends in without taking away from your existing décor. I give it a 4.5 star rating. [CON] There is roughly a 1/4" play from level in the shelf or I'd give it 5 stars.

    I installed this a month ago in my bedroom to support a Samsung 4K player and Apple 4K box. This was a preferred method compared to an entertainment center due to lack of space. It was easy to install and looks clean. It sticks out about 2 inches from the wall more than needed. I assume this is to accommodate other devices.

    I wanted to free up space in front of the wall where the tv would be. I looked on the internet and at business locations at this shelf and thought it might be too large and I would hit it as I walk by. I am very pleased with the look of the shelf with the dvd/soundbar under the 65" I purchased together. I do not hit it and it opens the room up and appears larger which is the reason I wanted a wall shelf. I am very pleased with the look.

    I bought a TV for my daughter and had to put it on the wall. Purchased a rocket fish wall mount and this shelf for the cable box and wii. Both work great together and looks nice. Put the TV mount up first, then place the TV on the Mount, measure correctly and install the shelf under the TV. Ours looks great and is very effective. Nice combo. The shelf is not made for heavy items, so check the specs first before purchasing.

    Looks good, easy to mount, one minor issue

    As with most Sanus products, the wall mount instructions were very clear and easy to follow. All necesary hardware was included and clearly marked. The only issue I had was that only one of the two screws, used to hold the shelf to the bracket, would line up. The other was slightly off. I ended up only using one screw, which I think is fine - it is secure. Just a minor glitch in the install.

    I was shopping for a shelf to house my husband's electronic items. I had an idea of the look I wanted to achieve, but did not specifically know what I wanted, the sales person suggested this item and requested that I try it. I did and it couldn't be better it is just "On the Money" a great asset to my husband's "Man Cave" instead of multiple shelves now I have all his electronic gadgets on one shelf.

    Bought this to put an xbox 360 on for the kids game room. It ended up helping me make a neater appearance for the whole wall! I went from having wires hanging to and fro, to having a sleek looking gaming center. I didn't notice on the box cover, but it has a nice sized cover that slides on and covers up all of the wires.

    I was surprised how big this shelf actually was. I had used one previously and just thought it was a much smaller form factor. It easily held the devices I had in mind and then some! There is also room on the platform for remote controls ad other devices. It installs easily thought and works as expected just be sure you have enough clearance for it as it sticks out almost a foot from the wall.

    It looks great and has a reasonable price. It is not overly hard to install though it almost requires two people to install it correctly. My concerns are twofold: 1. It does not easily accept or cover the wires of my Blu-ray player and the DirectTV receiver. and 2. Though it seems to be holding both with no problem, it seems like it could be too fragile long term. I guess we will see a couple years down the road.

    Instructions were good, but they could have emphasized how snug the top cover was; it took a minute before I realized that a LOT of pull was necessary to pop it off. But that's a good thing, as you'll realize when cramming many wires into it! I have a heavy Sony DVD player and a FiOS set top box on the shelf; no issues. And you really can hide all wires in the cable guide; invisible from the front.

    Great Looking Shelf

    This shelf is beautiful looking and looks very clean on the wall with a wall mounted TV. I liked this product so much that I bought another one for my office. The only reason I didn't give it a 5* rating was because it claims to be self leveling, which I didn't experience to be true. I didn't need it to be self leveling anyway, since I wanted it perfectly straight. All in all, this was a great buy.

    Perfect for Blu ray and cable box

    I would highly recommend purchasing from Best Buy, specifically because of the availability of the Geek Squad installation. We aren't technology savvy, so it is nice to have someone come and set everything up. We weren't sure the single shelf would accommodate both a blu-ray player and cable box, but it works nicely as the cable box can have another component stacked on top.

    While install was pretty easy, the product does not hide cords as easily as it claims, and the shelf looks smaller than it really is once it has any components on it. Also, even with the tilt adjustments tightened, once there are components on the shelf (even under the 15 lb limit), it gives the appearance it's tilted by the weight.

    I'm using this to hold my center channel speaker. So far it works great and doesn't seem to vibrate are have any issues holding the speaker. My speaker is within a pound or two of the weight limit, and I was a bit nervous when placing that much weight on it, but it has been a couple months now and it seems to be fine.
