Import Advantage Banyan Creek TV Lift Cabinet Review


Product Rating: 4
(Updated: April 2014) Product Details: When browsing the Import Advantage website for their selection of extraordinary TV lifts, you quickly get the feeling that this is a company that manufactures classic high quality living room and bedroom TV lifts that also have some of the coolest high tech features around.

In fact, this is exactly what founder and president Rob Buehl and his team have in mind: delivering heirloom quality furniture that will both please you aesthetically, and provide the functionality you need to house your plasma LCD TV in space-saving style.

As one of the largest suppliers of TV Lift Cabinets in the US, ImportAdvantage has an impressive selection of units to choose from. Let's take a closer look at the Banyan Creek - a cabinet designed to accommodate a TV up to 56 inches in width and weighing up to 130 lbs.

The Banyan Creek unit is finished in warm brown tones and, like all ImportAdvantage models, uses hand selected solid woods and the highest quality veneers -- in this case, African mahogany. The careful 8-to-12-step finish produces both a beautiful appearance and helps ensure scratch and stain resistance. In short, the cabinetry is first class.

The Banyan Creek is well suited for placement against a wall, be it in a living room, family room, or bedroom. Other ImportAdvantage units, such as the Crystal Pointe, can function in open space or as room dividers. It features a center door with interchangeable wood and speaker or glass panels for versatile configuration. Ventilated adjustable shelves allow you to set up your equipment optimally. Built in wire management keeps your installation neat and clean. The details are so well conceived that when the TV is retracted, this unit looks like a beautiful antique cabinet.

Features: All ImportAdvantage consoles include a heavy duty, welded steel lift mechanism integrally mounted within the plasma LCD TV lift cabinet. There is no room for sloppiness when lifting the prize element of your entertainment system, which probably cost you several thousand dollars, weighs upwards of 100 lbs, and doesn't take kindly to bumps and jars. ImportAdvantage is as impressive in its implementation of the lift mechanism as it is in the construction of its lift cabinetry. Not only is the UL recognized rack-and-pinion lift mechanism solid and reliable (and backed by a one year warranty), but it impresses with its practically silent operation, and safety features like an auto reverse mechanism and thermal overload protection.

The storage area of this motorized television lift features a built-in infrared relay system which allows you to operate your equipment reliably without opening the cabinet doors. As with other details this consoles has a built-in IR system is of impressive quality, featuring flush mounted sensors and flashers that amplify and distribute signals from a remote control to the components within the cabinet. It's all pre-installed and requires no programming or setup -- it just works. In operation, the unit raises and lowers on command every time, in smooth, quiet fashion. One is confident that the TV will be there when you want it, and tuck itself neatly and safely away when it is not. Isn't that what you're really looking for in a flat panel TV lift cabinet?

With a piece of high tech furniture as impressive as the Banyan Creek, you might worry about it getting to you in one piece. Again, ImportAdvantage doesn't disappoint. Their White Glove Delivery service is included free of charge with each purchase, and shepherds your heirloom piece from their factory to its final position in your home with skill and care. This is not a truck driver leaving the unit in your driveway. To the contrary, two tradesmen will unpack and position the unit in the location of your choice, and pack away and remove all packing materials. ImportAdvantage provides a 1 year warranty on flat screen lift machinery and cabinetry, and an unconditional 100% money back guarantee.

If you're looking for a quality TV lift that will complement your furnishings, stand the test of time, operate smoothly and flawlessly every time, and perhaps make your friends a bit jealous, the Banyan Creek, or any of the TV lift models from ImportAdvantage, are well worth looking at. If by chance you don't feel that a TV lift is right for you then you can also check out flat panel TV wall mounts. TV wall mounts are a great substitute to TV lifts and in some cases are more convenient.
