The Table Perfect for Your 52'' LCD

If that pricey LCD HDTV is the pride and joy of your living room, why not encase it in some style? The Siamun Motorized Flat Screen Stand is a wine rack, mini bar, and TV Stand combo, with various compartments designed to keep your stuff out of sight

With everything tucked away, Siamun's creation looks a typical wood table with chrome support and accents. Only the small control panel situated above the cabinet doors gives anything away. Push a button and something special happens. The rear panel opens to reveal your TV mounted on a motorized frame (maximum size supported: 52") that brings the set up for your viewing pleasure.

The top drawers are apparently for your manuals and the like. The lower compartment is multi-purpose containing the mini bar, wine rack, drawers for your players, and media storage. Total size of the whole setup (with the everything closed and the TV retracted) is a humongous 55.5" x 26" x 35", with weight at a heavy 200 pounds. Clearly, you'll need a large living room to house this TV stand!

The problem with Siamun's offering is that the relatively gaudy chrome may turn off homeowners with more understated tastes. The $4500 list price is also beyond the reach of most buyers. Worse, based on Siamun's product page, the motorized stand is customized for your TV upon order. This means using the stand with another model may not be possible.

    Ok, who will be the idiot that spends $4500 on a motorized table? Not me.

    Gaudy Chrome? Try 1970s era wood stain! I haven't seen a product with such a dark (ugly) stain for decades!

    Does it come with pine paneling for the room as well?

    It'll be wonderful when the motor craps out and your heavy-ass 52" TV is stuck inside that monstrosity.
  • I saw one that essentially did the same thing last year but it was around 1k. My GF brought up a good point what do you do when the motor dies because you know its going to happen. Also I almost forgot it had a blue back light to the storage area where the TV went.

    That is about the ugliest behemoth piece of furniture I've ever crappy cardboard/wood-impersonating IKEA thingy will do just fine.

    Seems a bit like a solution in search of a problem. And an ugly solution at that.

    I just don't get why. The table would look odd without a tv on it. You can't put much on it, or the tv will knock it over when it comes up/the object will obstruct the view. Does anyone really find flat-panel tv's so hideous that the would pay $5000 to hide one? I guess since the gap between the rich and the poor is increasing, the rich need to find new crap to blow their money on.
