Sanus VF2012 Single-column wall-mounted component rack

Written By rossabh, California on Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy installation - bought it for a customer, planning to route the wire in the channel (an important feature to me), but the customer wanted it lower on the wall and I did not use that feature. I was able to mount the single column unit on a stud and center it below the flatscreen. It would be good to anticipate alignment of the flatscreen and the shelf unit. I had thought about the two column unit to give me a little more versatility, but the larger shelves were too large for the application. Clean looking unit with minimum appearance.

Pros: Easy to mount, wiring can be run in the column channel, clean/minimum appearance

Cons: no adjustment sideways to align with the flatscreen if you want to mount to a stud

Love It!

Cons: None

Written By RonS, Parsippany, NJ on Sunday, March 30, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very functional unit that looks great. I do have a few minor quibbles that keep it from getting a 5 star rating (see cons below). The locking plate screw is very tight from the factory. Just be sure to use the properly sized Phillips screwdriver and it should readily loosen. I found the instructions adequate for easy installation.

Pros: Looks great Shelves are fully adjustable in the vertical plane. Cables are easy to hide and are completely out of view.

Cons: Color is gloss black. Would look better in flat or satin finish. Shelves attach easily and lock securely in the vertical plane. But don't lean on the side edge of a shelf or it will suddenly drop downwards. I cannot get the top and bottom caps to install properly. Fortunately, in my installation I really don't need to use them. (The side caps snap into place very easily to hide the cables.)

I purchased this wall unit for our business' conference room TV.We recently purchased a new TV that we use as a large monitor for company live meetings via lync and needed a shelving unit for the computer, keyboard, etc. The Sanus VF2012 is working our perfectly. The glass shelves are sturdy, adjustable and great looking and the installation was simple and fast.

Strong and beautiful

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Item arrive nice protected in additional box. Include all the screws that you need. Instructions are 4 from 5. Very simple in order to cover the cables. The column that will go to the wall is full hard metal. Very good construction and fast installation. Looks very professional. As always from Crutchfield, nice price and fast shipping.

Pros: Good construction and fast installation. Include all the screws that you will need.

Cons: You will need a level; is not included.

Nice Shelving Unit

Written By Mynor, Los Angeles, CA on Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This worked out well, I actually mounted this unit off to the side of my TV. I was really wanting something where I can put my video game systems since there was no room under my TV due to my polk audio CS1 center channel already placed there. Worked great, easy to install (took about half hr) all in all I am pleased with unit and it serves its purpose. Best of all I bought it off the Scratch & Dent option for a great price, Thanks again to Crutchfield's fast free shipping

Pros: Well made, Looks nice

Cons: N/A

Great Product

Written By Mike, Washington, DC on Monday, May 06, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The assembly was a bit complicated, and there are very limited instructions, only pictures/illustrations on each step. The first step is to take a screw out and separate the base from the mounting bracket, and it came with the screw in so tight it was nearly impossible to get it out without stripping the screw. After I finally unscrewed it, the rest of the assembly was not too bad -- just took a while to figure out how it all fit together due to lack of directions. Once completed, the shelf looks great and was a perfect option for housing two units (I have a cable receiver and DVD player now mounted below the TV). I would highly recommend it, just be aware it may take longer than you expect to put it together.

Pros: Great component shelf, storage solution, looks great.

Cons: Assembly more difficult than expected, very few directions.

Wall Rack

Written By Paul B., Rockford, Il on Friday, March 08, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This my second one of these. My first was a "double wide" version that I used for my home theater setup, Which was also excellent. This one I'm using for my music only setup and was MUCH easier to install. Same great quality and looks awesome! Instructions ARE pretty rough, but it's also not rocket science either. Plenty of room to hide cables, it looks very clean and almost like your components are floating. Highly recommend!

Pros: Cable hiding Cool looking "floating" factor

Cons: Walls have to be reasonably flat Bad instructions

Sanus VF2012 is a very nice piece

Best wall shelf on the market

Written By Dave R, Camnpbell CA on Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The unit is well thought out and engineered. Looks great. Solid mounting system.

Pros: Looks good. Shelves can be easily removed for cleaning.

Cons: Bad manual. I purchased a unit that had been previously opened. I found out why. The screw that holds the lockl bar was too tightly torqued by the factory and the previous purchaser stripped the phillips head which made it impossible to remove in the factory installed position. Fortunately the opposite end has a screw that when removed allowed the asembly to slide just enough to allow me to get channel locks on the outside of the screw and with a heavy twist got the screw to turn. Problem solved

Great wall-shelf unit!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great unit! This is myescond purchase of this shelf unit. Great loooks, great utility, and it hides all wires from view. I installed this unit in a kitchen. The installation was easy, and the unit easily supported a sound bar and the cable box.

Pros: Great apprearance, two shelves, and it hides all wires.

Modern Bedroom

Written By GarretS, Chicago, IL on Monday, November 12, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As part of combining households, I needed to make space for a new Sony flatscreen TV in my bedroom. We decided to finally mount the TV to the wall, and incorporate shelves for the AV components. So I purchased this item and the wall mounting bracket, and installed them both myself. The quality of the hardware and the instructions were perfect. I have moderate experience with home improvement, so I would say that I only read them minimally. Overall, I recommend this item and the Sanus ML11-B1 Super-Slim (mounting bracket) if you need something for a bedroom entertainment setup.

Pros: - Quality hardware - Good instructions - Plenty of extra parts

Cons: - None

okay

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

instructions were pitiful. able to install on wall in approx. 2hrs. The unit is sleek, however, deeper than I originally thought.

Pros: great price, and looks great

Cons: The instructions are pitiful, and it is deeper than anticipated.

Looks great!

Great addition to a wall mount TV. Hides the cords/wires well and looks great. Easy to install and has lots of room for dvd player, cable box or any other unit. Smoked glass shelves are very sturdy and add to the clean look.

This is sturdier than I had expected. Because of the glass shelves, you've got to carefully
install them. I'm glad I purchased this item, it holds up my LCD-TV and DVD player
nicely.

Clean look, simple install

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've purchased two of these and love them. Very clean look--cables are completely hidden.
Each shelf holds 50 lbs. Very easy to install. Good excuse to ditch the old furniture you probably have holding your cable box, dvd player, etc.

The rack is good quality and looks great. The directions aren't very helpful, but if you don't still wear velcro shoes it's easy to figure out. Thinking about getting another to put in the family room.

Component Wall Mount

Written By Zelda, Lexington, NC on Saturday, December 13, 2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Sanus VF2012 is a very nice looking and highly functional AV component wall mount. We used it with the Sanus LT25 TV wall mount. The installation was easy, despite the total lack of usable information in the manual. We installed it after the wall mount was installed and the TV mounted so we had an accurate measurement for its placement. The shelf bracket mount was a bit tricky to get on, but not a big issue to solve.

All the packing material is recyclable.

Good product, simple installation and a good buy.

Yes mounting between studs is safe. You need to verify the load that the molly you use to mount it with is rated for the weight you put on it. [ PAUL  Dec 18, 2013 ]
How long is the span. Studs are usually 16 or 24 inches on center. You could use molys to attach the shelving to the sheet rock where there are no studs.. Get good ones. [ RAY P  Dec 17, 2013 ]
As long as you put in anchors and DO NOT exceed the weight capacity for each shelf your equipment should be more than fine. I placed my shelves between the wall studs and haven't had any type of problems. [ MELQUIADES  Dec 15, 2013 ]
I would not mount this rack in sheetrock. I don't think it would safely support your gear. I ended up mounting mine in a stud and slid my TV to one side of the TV mount to center it on the rack. It's in a bedroom so I'm not worried about the end of the wall mount showing on one end. [ CHARLIE  Dec 15, 2013 ]
Hello, I can't really answer your question because I ended up returning this item. Although the quality was fine, it was quite large and not really the look I wanted. I decided to keep my satellite dish receiver and dvd player on top of an existing entertainment center. Hope this helps! Joe [ JOSEPH  Dec 15, 2013 ]
