sanus streaming device panel review

If you’ve got a streaming device (or perhaps more than one) plugged into your TV, you’ve dealt with the inevitable question of where to place it once it’s connected. If you have some furniture, great, but what happens if your TV is wall mounted? Many of us have gotten creative with ways to attach the device to the TV or the wall, from double sided tape, to velcro and more, but if you’re going to the trouble of wall mounting for a clean look, you likely want a sleeker, tidier solution for the streaming box too. I just found out about Sanus Streaming Device panel. I had a chance to test one out on the back of a new 4K TV I got. Here’s what I found.

What is Sanus Streaming Device panel?

The Sanus BASP1 Streaming Device Panel is a metal grid that affixes to the back of your TV or to your wall mount bracket and securely hides small AV streaming devices and TV accessories behind your TV.  Mounting hardware and straps are included to ensure a secure installation.

Installing the Sanus Streaming Device Panel

the Sanus Streaming Device Panel attaches to the back of the TV using screws, or to a wall mount using special hooks.

You can’t exceed 3 lbs in streaming devices, and you’ll need to make sure the total weight isn’t too much for the TV or wall mount.

Now I was hoping to install the panel on my new HiSense Roku 4K TV… but sadly there was just no place to properly secure it on either the brand new TV or the new wall mount bracket, so while Sanus might call this universal, it’s not.

You need to use the wall mount brackets or to install it attached to the wall mount, and the location of available spots on my new TV just didn’t make that an option. I could have installed it upside down, but after a call to Sanus support, I realized that’s not a great idea, since installing it with your point of contact at the bottom will likely find gravity pulling it down.
