Rated 4 out of 5Â by tarheel365 Good wire management system
The wire mold cord management system was perfect for my application. I needed something removeable to hide my speaker cables. I actually only used 2-3 pieces. I fished the speaker cables behind some crown molding and it exited out at one corner. From there they cables went into the corner channel and out into a speaker connector terminal.
I also had a flat channel piece that went behind my wall mounted tv to the entertainment system shelf.
It was as good as I could have expected without going through drywall and drilling through studs.
As far as fitment goes. I could barely fit 4 14 gauge in-wall speaker cables. In order for me to get the wire to exit the channel into the flat channel, I had to strip the "in-wall" jacket (the white jacket on the in-wall speaker cables) to get the flexibity and space to make a proper bend. The regular flat channels are also smaller than the corner channel so keep that in mind. I was actually able to fit the tv power cable, and hdmi cable and my center channel speaker cable through one of the flat covers. Unfortunately the flat channel doesn't fit directly with the wiremold receptacle box so there is a slight gap.
Attaching to the wall:
I first attached the corner piece using the double sided tape. Then I realized I had to remove it. It does a very good job at staying on (at least in my vertical application with the somewhat heavy speaker cable helping to hold it up). It took some careful prying to make sure it didn't peel off a layer of drywall/paint. I used drywall screws/anchors to reattach even though it had plenty of adhesiveness left.
For the flat channels I used drywall screws instead of the adhesive as it was going on to a surface we just painted.
I did not paint the channels. The white was clean enough for my application .
Overall this is a great product. The quality is fine. It's somewhat flimsy and getting the wire in can be a pain but for a cord management system that you set once in a while it is fine. I could see some wear and tear if you are constantly opening/closing the channels. Space can be tight and you have to keep in mind that you'll need even more in order to get through some of the channel connectors.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by GeRMs02 It hids cords and snaps open and close to add more later
I used this because the other wiremold products required fishing wire. It has an adhesive in the back, which over time will fail. To make this product usable, I ran it along a stud, drilled holes into it, and secured it by sinking in nails with a nail set. I later filled in the holes with spackle, and painted it the wall color. It was a pain to do this, but I know that the adhesive would fail in a few years, as it has with other wiremold products bought.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by goodstuff Worth every penny
I live in an apartment and wanted to put a surround system in without drilling a lot of holes. the mix of flat and corner channels was what I needed, could have used 2more feet but this worked. I was able to put 2 speaker cables (14g) 2 cat5 cables and one coax cable through the flat channel - its a tight fit and took some fiddling but it works. There was room to spare in the corner channels. I've had the setup for 3years, adhesive is fine. About the best value out there for this much channeling.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by OGYaHerd Accessories kind of skimpy..
Not a bad option for organizing cords that may have to be later accessed. Adhesive backing sounds nice but typically wont last over a couple of years. Concern is for the quantity of connectors - there's none for the Cornermate(?), and they're not easy to find nor are they cheap!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Chipchak Worked as expected
Pro: Easy to use and setup
Cons: Could be more flexible to be able to move over trim
