I cannot seem to find any recent information but does anyone have a recommendation on a decent motorized lift for an LCD tv (probably 46")? I am going to have a TV rise out of a cabinet that sits below the projector screen. I have found ones that range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand. IMO, the ones that are a few thousand are highway robbery but cannot find any reviews of the cheaper models that you might find on ebay.

Do you know anything about these? I have found 10 other companies on the web selling motorized lifts but there is no commentary out there about quality.

I used a Bekland lift for some gaming screens in my home theater, it works great, you can google it. Or buy it on ebay.

I am looking to do something with a 'lift' but only for a small 3 shelf component cabinet. We want to put them in a seat box near our fireplace, but the only access to the box is via the flip top. So I was thinking we could sit our DVR/DVD and game console in the seat box and then have them lift out (similar to the TV lift furniture) so that we can easily access the dvd etc.

Anyone know of an linear actuator or other product that might do this. All the ones I've found are specifically for TVs and I think they would be too big for my space. The seat box compartment will only be about 1' 4" w x 1' 4" d x 2' h
