    meh. It looked nice.

    If other people on this forum can chip in with what they have, would be great!

    The pro's of this for me were:

    The black styling
    Not very deep and not too wide. Just right for a 37" and fitting in the corner of a room.
    Cabinet style, kinda good at hiding cable hell by obscuring the floor behind the cab. And some room for DVD/BluRay storage etc.

    But yes, I was concerned about airflow. I don't know how wide the PS3 is but you get 450mm to play with there.

    I am going to try to make a cupboard out of one of those mini beer fridges, glass fronted, silent and cool :cool:

    Just in case anyone is interested in my ongoing saga, I've continued this in my thread here:

    http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=608812

    Found some closed door units, which hopefully the 1080p and Sauna ready PS3 will be fine in! Not too worried about the unit itself, more about the sound the fan will put out. These look like the best solution.
