Product Focus of the Week: Prism Espresso TV Lift Cabinet

The Prism offers a clean, minimalist design with a rich inviting espresso finish.  This cabinet is finished on all four sides to be used at the foot of bed, against a wall, or free standing within room.  Towards the base of the cabinet are flip down panels on either side to reveal storage space for AV electronics.

The Prism TV lift cabinet comes fully assembled with built in rack and pinion TV lift and infrared relay system.  The IR system relays commands from remote control to AV electronics.  The beauty of this system is that the electronics can remain hidden within cabinet at all times, eliminating the need to have direct line of sight.  The IR system requires no programming or installation.  The maximum TV size dimensions for Prism are 49 3/4"W x 5 1/2"D x 28"H.  The overall cabinet dimensions are 54 1/2"W x 18"D x 42 1/4"H.

How To Determine What Lift To Buy

Do you wish to buy a lift machine but are not sure whether your TV will fit?  Here is how to determine which lift will work best for your TV.

Step 1: Measure your TV height without stand.  Remember the TV stand is not needed since all our lifts have a platform for the TV to sit on.

Step 2: Go to the lift machine product page and click on the specification tab located under the picture.

Step 3: Once on specification tab, you will see the closed and extended lift dimensions. Take the closed dimension height and subtract that from the extended dimension height.  This will give you the maximum height of the TV that will fit on the lift machine.  For example, on the Uplift 3700 Commercial Grade lift machine, the maximum TV height is 33” (70” minus 37”).

As long as your TV height is less than the maximum TV height dimension, your TV will fit on the lift machine.  If you are planning to upgrade your TV to a larger screen in the future, it is better to go with the next size up so that you have room to grow down the line.

If you are as busy as I am, then it can be hard to keep up with current events.  Therefore, I have decided to make a quick bullet list of noteworthy news that has happened as of late.  If you did not get a chance to watch these events from your TV lift cabinet, here are the highlights.

  • Falcon 9 rocket has launched into space on its course to International Space Station.  This is the first privately owned rocket to be released into space. It is owned by billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, founded of SpaceX.

  • Dancing with the Stars winners were announced last night.  Congratulations to Donald Driver and his dance partner Peta Murgatroyd!

  • Miami Heat is up 3 to 2 against Indiana Pacers.  Boston Celtics are up 3 to 2 against Philadelphia 76ers. Will Miami Heat and Boston Celtics face off against each other in the Conference Finals?  Each team only needs one more win to claim their seat in next round.

Build Custom. Use Our Lift Mechanism.

Did you know that you can purchase our lift machines separate from the cabinets? For custom projects, customers have purchased just our lift machines.  Our lifts have been used on boats, inside pony walls, built within antiques and even used in retail displays.

Verizon and AT&T Capping Data Plans

Verizon and AT&T are rethinking how they package their unlimited data plans.  Everyday more and more Americans are using data to stream content to their TV lift cabinets, laptops, and smart phones.  With more data usage being consumed, AT&T and Verizon have decided to do away with their unlimited data plans.

Verizon announced this week that they are moving their unlimited data customers to capped data plans.  They did not mention the capped usage amount and pricing for capped plans.  AT&T has decided to be slightly more generous.  They will allow folks who already have unlimited data plans to be grandfathered in, but all new subscribers will have capped plans.  The AT&T unlimited data plan customers that use a large amount of data will however, see their data being cut off or “throttled”.

Sprint is the only large wireless carrier that will still offer an unlimited plan.  Sprint has been struggling in the last few years with poor network coverage resulting in losing customers over to AT&T and Verizon.  If Sprint keeps unlimited plan and continues to improve network coverage, they may be able to steal customers back from AT&T and Verizon.

The Bermuda Run TV Lift Cabinet is part of our trunk collection.  This cabinet inspired by tropical island living is made of wicker, rich brown leather and Caribbean woods.  The leather bound corners are nailed in place by hand by our expert Craftsmen.  The Bermuda Run TV lift cabinet holds up to most 46” TVs with maximum TV size dimensions at 44"W x 4-3/4"D x 28-7/8"H. The cabinet also features plenty of room to conceal TV and two electronic components. There are pre-cut holes at bottom of cabinet for feeding cords underneath cabinet to an electric outlet.

Carousel White for the Cottage by the Sea

The Carousel White TV lift cabinet is constructed of solid maple wood and manufactured right here in the United States.  This cabinet is finished on all four sides in a classic white paint.

The Carousel is the only TV lift cabinet in our entire collection to feature caster wheels built into the bottom of cabinet.  The caster wheels allow owners to easily move cabinet around home to enjoy the television from different angles.  The base of cabinet has two pre-cut holes one either side of cabinet to feed cords underneath cabinet to electric outlet.  Max TV dimensions without stand are 43-3/4” x 5” x 27”.

The maximum TV dimensions without the TV Stand are 43"W x 4-3/4"D x 28-7/8"H.  The Belle is a designer’s favorite.

Microsoft Offering $99 Xbox 360 with Subscription Plan

If you are looking for a great gaming console to store within your TV lift cabinet, you may be interested to know that Microsoft is now offering the Xbox for only $99 plus a subscription fee.   Currently, Xbox and other gaming consoles cost around $299.  This is a hefty price tag for consumers to pay out.  Many are not able to pay this upfront cost.  To get around this hurdle, Microsoft is now offering this affordable subscription plan.

Consumers will have to pay a $99 initial fee to get Xbox 360 and then commit to a two year contract.  The subscription fee per month is $15.  The $99 price tag is a much more manageable number for consumers to handle than $299.  Microsoft is hoping this pricing strategy will lure in more customers and increase their Xbox sales.

Now for those who enjoy crunching numbers, you may have already figured out that the cost of owning an Xbox will amount to $459 with this new pricing strategy whereas it is only $299 without subscription.  However, for consumers who can only afford to pay in small increments towards ownership of an Xbox, this is a reasonable solution.   If you can afford to pay the upfront cost of $299 without subscription, then avoid the subscription plan.

Jawbone Releases the Big Jambox Bluetooth Speaker

Jawbone experienced great success with their original Jambox speaker.  Due to this success, the company decided to make modifications to its Jambox Bluetooth speaker to introduce the Big Jambox.  The Big Jambox is larger than its predecessor, measuring at 10” W x 3.5” H x 3.1” D.  While not small enough to fit within a coat pocket, it can fit comfortably inside TV lift cabinets or in cars.

The Big Jambox produces amazing sound quality.  As Jawbone’s VP, Travis Bogard stated “Sometimes, there are situations where you want more sound”.  That is exactly what the Big Jambox delivers.

The Big Jambox has six command buttons compared to the original Jambox’s three.  The command buttons are the talk/Jambox button, play/pause, previous and next, and the up and down volume buttons.  The Big Jambox also has a Bluetooth pairing button, a 3.5mm stereo auxiliary input jack, a Micro USB port, and a power adapter jack.  The Bluetooth button can be connected with Apple products (iPhone, iPad, and Mac computer).  When the Big Jambox is paired with phone, all the user has to do is press the Talk button to activate voice speaker.

The Big Jambox is being offered in black, white, and red.  The retail price is set at $299.
