This is a great product. I was reluctant to order this piece online because it had a painted gray frame. I have similar pieces t
hat have a gray finish and have tarnished quickly. This has not been the case with this piece.
When it arrived, I was able to quickly assemble the stand without using the directions. It was very straight forward, and used simple, common tools.
Once assembled, I began to load my components on the shelves with ease. The unit does have a wire management area on the back and I was able to conceal: 6 Speaker Wires, 2 HDMI Cables, 3 Components Cables, and lastly, 5 Power Cords. This is very important to me because I hate to see dangling cords behind the unit. It did not come with any wire ties, however, I did use some and attached one to the rear of the unit in the perforated section to assist with the wire concealment. It may have taken ten minutes to get it right...
Now that it is all done, I have had nothing but compliments from all my friends. It is the same width (+/- 1") as my TV and looks like something out of a catalog.
Oh, the only con, be ready to dust this piece about once every week and a half. The black glass tends to show dust accumulation.

OmniMount G-3FP Flat Panel TV Stand
- Shopper in
This product is really a great product - so I'll start out with the two major issues I had.1. A few of the screw holes had gott
en paint in them from the manufacturers' painting process which required much effort to repeatedly screw the bolts in and out to remove the paint (and made we worried about getting screws stuck since it required a good amount of effort).2. The ESSENTIAL bolts which mount the bracket that screws onto the back of my plasma to the universal mount attached to the main post - were NOT the correct bolts!!! Again - there was paint in the screw holes - which made me think that was the only problem. I ended up trying to screw the bolts in and out to remove the paint - and got one screw stuck and stripped it trying to get it out (I have never stripped an allen-hole bolt before!). At this point I was almost irate - and realized the paint wasn't the problem but in fact the bolts were not the correct size. I had to use a vice to remove the stripped, incorrect bolt(I had to go to [@] to do this because I didn't have one). I then found the correctly threaded bolts at Home Depot that DID fit the screw hole, worked the paint out with them and ended up successfully mounting the TV to the stand. This was, neeedless to say a pain in my butt - all the while gettting slack from my wife because she thought "I had broke this $400 stand and that it was MY FAULT that I couldn't put it together". Of course, once I came back from[@] with the CORRECT hardware and she saw that this wasn't the case - she was happy with the product (and me). Overall this was a headache that is unacceptable when you buy a $400 TV stand/mount.Now that we have had it for a few weeks - the product looks great, is very functional (very adjustable viewing angles (side to side swivel and up and down swivel), including overall height adjustment of the top shelf and TV itself. The wiring organizing system in the back works pretty well too.
