Works well, but extremely overpriced
It's a nice plastic box to hide a power strip. That's all. It's not some amazing device. For $30, it's not really a good buy, but I am keeping it because returning it is too much trouble.

Nice product, cheap extra
The idea of hiding cables using a box is a nice one and it really helps to organize and make things neat when you have too many cables of different sizes around. I liked the product but two very small things made me kind of upset.
First, the box came with a sticker on its bottom (seen only when you open the box) to promote the taking of before and after pictures and uploading them to some website. Well, it happens that this sticker is very difficult to remove and when you do, you get that ugly sticky surface that will require time with some goo-gone product. Horrible thing to do. Either leave a note inside the box or use a good glue that will allow easy removal of such useless sticker.
Secondly, the box comes with ten cable ties. These ties are the worse quality ever, they are those kind of ties that can be practically used only once and they are not friendly to tie like most ties I have. I just threw them right away when I realized their kind.
The price I think is a little to high for what is offered but since I could not find alternative, I ended up buying it and I don't regret. But, if price was a little fairer, I would have bought two, because I could use a second one in another room.

Got My Cords Under Control!
Love the simplicity of this cable box. It works and I did it myself....I usually have to ask my son-in-law for help with this sort of thing. My new set-up is with Elfa shelves and is open, so I really didn't want the cords showing more than necessary. The box seemed quite large but after I had 5 cords feeding into it, it seemed just right.
What I don't like about it is it is grossly overpriced. I deducted one star because of the price. Also, when everything is in place, it is not easy to move things. I wanted to change the location of the radio and it required getting on the floor and finagling to get a few inches of cord.

Frivolous or Fabulous?
I LOVE this box. Does it feel frivolous when you fork over $30 for what is essentially a glorious plastic shoe box? Yes. Does it feel fabulous when you look over at what used to be a nest of cables more horrifying than Medusa's tresses? You betcha. No more stone-faced teeth gnashing every time you glance at the TV corner.
We have a lot of peripherals hooked up to our TV and this box handles them all. The xbox 360 power brick, the Wii power brick, a surge protector and motley other cords all fit inside. My husband might not have been thrilled when he found out how much it cost, but every time I looked at that corner and no longer feel stressed out by the mess, I'm glad I made this purchase.
