Good points:
Stylish and easy to assemble
Bad points:
Shelf space could be better by making slightly deeper. No screws supplied to secure TV to stand so I had to buy these.

Jeff, Romford Home entertainment enthusiast

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent quality, the hinges and other parts are very strong and overall the unit looks great. Had no issues controlling AV units through the glass and it hides a real mess of cables.

All the parts are well labelled and the screws are in individual little packs clearly identified and there are spares in case you drop one.
Bad points:
As per usual with self assembly the instructions could be clearer but still very easy to put together

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Looks good from a distance. Easy to assemble. Very sturdy. Good design
Bad points:
Let down by small blemishes on the gloss wood. I have read this complaint previously on line and put it down to chance. This is obviously a manufacturing issue that needs sorting that is spoiling a great product. Please ask your manufacturer to resolve.

Richard, Wokingham Home entertainment enthusiast

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Looks great and despite other reviews it turned out to be one of the easiest pieces of furniture I have assembled. I normally end up making mistakes and getting annoyed!

I managed to fit in a PS3 regular, 2 satellite receivers, Wii, bluray player, centre speaker, a DVD player and an AV reciever with some tweaking. Things are much tidier!
Bad points:
The depth isn't enough to fit most AV receivers in which is a pity. I assume it has been made with these in mind since it comes with an optional speaker grill. I did measure before buying but didn't take into account the distance the cables stick out of the receiver.I had to remove the back, the other option would be to make the holes bigger on the back with a saw for the connection points on the receiver. Also if you put the AV reciever on the bottom shelf you will probably have to aim your remote from low level to get it to work behind the glass!

Claire, Wakefield Home entertainment enthusiast

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Looks lovely, and holds my large TV very well.
Bad points:
Draws attention to dust. The picture showed a powerpoint socket on the back of the product, this is not included so still have the cables lose behind the unit. There were no full instructions with part of this product, so had to make a guess on set up, which is not that easy, so if you can get someone else to do the install.

Manufacturer's Description

The Gecko Sapphire SAP1200 has concave curved sides and a glorious gloss black finish with chrome trim, forming a TV cabinet structure perfect suited to the latest generations of LED, LCD and Plasma television screens.

The reflective gloss surfaces accentuate lighting and the illusion of space. The wooden cabinet panels are supported by a strengthened steel framework.

Gecko never lost sight of AV functionality when designing the Sapphire SAP1200 cabinet, designed to accommodate all types of audio and video components in addition to having the necessary structural strength to support larger television sets.
