Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nikki Super Easy to install
The hardest part was feeding the cables through and thats probably because I did not follow the cutting directions of the video because that did not make sense to me. I cut the length from bottom of top hole to top of bottom hole. The zig zag pattern of the tube caught each cable head while I was inserting. But it was totally worth the trouble. I have recommended this kit to two people so far that have asked "how did you hide the cables" and I'll continue to recommend. This 40 year old lady installed her 65 in all by her lonesome :D

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wood This product is great! It isn't as easy to install as it appears to be. However, I like the final product. I wish the oval face plate version was available at my local Home Depot. That version looks easier to install. If you purchase this as a DIY makes sure you measure the exact distance you want using a measuring tape along the desired wall. I did not do that and cut it a little too short. Hope this helps. (Also watch both oval and round face plate installation before you begin and during the round face plate installation measuring the wall is a step used in the oval technique and not in the round technique.) Hope this helps.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MattFromSA Looks great, but installation can be troublesome
The product got the job done and looks great once installed. Feeding the tube through the wall however was pretty difficult. Also the tube only fits a max of 2 HDMI cords.

This worked so well! The design is well thought out and it even included the hole saw! I have paid more in the past to buy all the components to do this job from scratch. No more! I will buy this kit from now on!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Steven Not great for exterior walls with installation
Installing this in an interior wall is probably a breeze. I was installing it into an exterior wall with insulation. The directions suggest that the fish tape makes it easy to pull the power cable and corrugated tube through a wall with insulation, but I found it nearly impossible. Once the insulation got caught as I tried to push the cable and tube downward through the wall, my efforts to force it through just jammed the insulation into a tighter bunch. I eventually had to cut a higher hole in the wall and dig all the insulation out to break the jam.
That being said, the rest of the installation was pretty easy. The product is not the highest quality, but it works, and the price is great. It also looks good once installed. It's a good idea and I think for interior walls, it's a no-brainer. If you've got an exterior wall in mind, you mind want to consider other options (or just be prepared for a lot of frustration).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unhappy Waste of time
First of all, it was not clear what the differences are between the two models - oval vs. round. I sent my husband to the store and he got us the round. Great, I thought, I prefer the look of the round one. Installation was not easy breezy as it was portrayed in the video. Nothing really snaps together smoothly. After all was said and done, I go and try to plug in the tv cord...and it wouldn't fit. There's not enough clearance to accommodate our tv plug. That's when it dawned on me that I actually needed the oval kit. It'd be great to highlight this at the start of the video and on the box! So annoyed after having wasted all that time installing this darn thing and now I have to try to undo everything. What a waste of time!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mikester86 Serves the purpose, with some caveats!
This product serves its intended purpose at a fair price. Watch the installation video and play along as you install, making certain that the tube length is 3 1/2 inches less than the installation distance.
The tube is not as large as I expected, and being currogated, it makes fishing wires the with the included fish tape more difficult than it should be. The fish tape itself is an issue, as where you connect the pieces together to extend the length are wide, and the more wires you fish through, the more of an issue it becomes. We fished 3 HDMI cables and 1 optical audio cable through. I ended up using a long wire to get the optical cable fished through, as it was the last wire to fish and even though it is thin, it was a no go with the included fish tape.
I would recommend using the thinnest Audio/Video cables of quality you can to make the fishing process less of a chore. Make certain they are plenty long enough, and in the event they are not, HDMI couplers and extension cables are an option.
Overall. the process was not incredibly difficult, just take your time. I will say that it is slightly nerve racking drilling the first large hole with the included hole-saw into perfect dry-wall!
Good luck and enjoy the fruits of your labor when complete, as it is worth it and satisfying!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ScottW I think it's worth it.
Kit works well. I've used a few of them and they are worth the money. I used to just run Romex and another recessed outlet and receptacles to mount but after buying everything I just spent a few extra dollars on this kit. Final result is a clean look.
