Eras 8357 TV Stand by BDI
designed by Noah Packard

Eras TV Stand At A Glance:
The Eras TV Stand has an unmistakable retro design, especially apparent in the way the legs rise up to the cabinet. Eras also has a number of BDI's innovative media features. By BDI's standard, the Eras TV Stand is more about form than function, but it still packs plenty of function compared to your average entertainment center.

The Eras TV Stand's top shelf holds up to 200 lbs, and the interior shelves provide more than enough strength for your components, unless you plan on stacking gold bricks inside. If you do, please take a picture so we can all enjoy the sight of massive amounts of gold in a TV stand.

Recommended TV size: up to a 82" flat panel TV.

What's To Like:
Eras 8357 is a wide cabinet, sized for larger home theater systems. IR remote-friendly grey tinted glass doors conceal two component compartments (each with an adjustable center shelf) and a media storage drawer. We especially like the removable back panel; it makes component setup and wire concealment a breeze.

What's Not to Like:
While the Eras Entertainment Center does many things well, it's an expensive solution. We think it's worth the money, with its superb functionality and awesome looks - but it's still pricey.

The Bottom Line:
The Eras TV Stand is a retro modern multi-functional media cabinet, well-suited for anyone who wants to conceal components without losing use of the remote control.

Features:

  • Cable management
    Integrated wire management features conceal wires for a clean appearance
  • Integrated levelers
    Leg assembly features easily adjustable levelers to accommodate uneven floors
  • Adjustable shelves
    Make it easy to accommodate consoles of different sizes
  • Flow through ventilation
    Shelves and cabinets feature ventilating slots to help keep media console units cool (and prolong their life)
  • Tempered, IR glass
    BDI glass shelves are virtually shatterproof, and they are compatible with the IR (Infrared) signals used by many remote controls, meaning your media consoles can stay hidden and still be fully functional
  • Removable back panel
    Makes it easy to adjust cords in the back of your Eras TV Stand. Back panel can also be left off to accommodate larger consoles

The BDI Eras TV Stand is also known by the following manufacturer Item Number: 8357.

Flow-Through Ventilation
In order to perform at peak levels, your components not only need to look cool, they have to stay cool. This cabinet facilitates airflow through generous ventilation slots integrated into the bottom panel, wood shelves and removable back panels. Cooler air is drawn in from the bottom of the cabinet, while hot air is naturally expelled out the back.
Precision Hardware
This TV stand features the finest quality materials and finishes. Sturdy construction and steel or interlocking-panel supports provide a strong foundation for your home theater. Additionally, BDI specifies only the finest European-style hardware. Door handles and other metal details are beautifully finished. The unique soft-close hinges on most door assemblies are fully adjustable to ensure that doors hang evenly, swing smoothly and close gently.
 
Removable Back Panel
This home theater cabinet is innovatively engineered in a unique way so that the back can be removed effortlessly for easy access to components and connections. Need to accommodate a very deep component? The back panel can be left off the cabinet without sacrificing any structural rigidity, allowing the component to extend from the back as needed.
Tempered Glass
Practically all of the glass used by BDI is tempered glass. Tempered glass is virtually shatterproof and four to five times stronger than standard glass. When used for shelves, tempered glass is strong enough to support the heaviest components and provides a high degree of durability.
 
IR-Friendly Glass
All of BDI's furniture is designed with ease of use in mind. Grey tinted glass doors and windows keep components out of sight yet are compatible with the Infrared (IR) signals used by many remote controls.
Hidden Wheels
Concealed wheels are built into this unit's leg assemblies. This means the TV stand can be moved (even if fully loaded) away from the wall by one person for easy access to cables and connections. Levelers allow the unit to be raised off of its wheels to secure it in place.
 
Cable Management
BDI home theater furniture is engineered to keep the usual tangle of cables and connections neatly under control. This cabinet features removable back panels for easy access to the rear of components. Integrated routing channels provide space for speaker and TV cables to be neatly concealed. 
Integrated Levelers
Floors can be quite uneven and your home theater needs to be level for optimum performance. This BDI TV stand includes easily adjustable levelers to compensate for minor leveling issues in flooring or to correct minor panel-alignment issues.
 
Adjustable Shelves
Because components come in many shapes and sizes, This TV stand features shelves that can be adjusted to accommodate a wide range of systems. Shelves rest on unique steel shelf pins, which are rubber-padded to minimize vibration of components, and high-quality threaded inserts allow you to readjust shelf positioning as needed.

Comments about BDI Eras 8357 TV Stand:

This TV stand is awesome. It's absolutely gorgeous, incredibly well built, and reasonably easy to assemble (just adding the legs). It is massively heavy, which is a little bit of a downside, but that's the tradeoff for solid construction. The cable management in the back leaves something to be desired. The unit comes with two panels that easily fit into the back. These panels contain the mess of cables that are just behind them. The one catch is that the panels aren't big enough to even come close to covering the back of the unit. There is a huge space in the middle where my cables inevitably poured out of. I ended up taking a piece of the packaging and cutting it to fit in that middle section (it's exactly the right width to fit into the slot where the panels slide in. So it's not a huge problem, but it would have been great if the unit had just come with an additional panel.

Service and delivery comments:

Awesome service. The delivery was on time. It arrived in great condition. The two movers brought it up a flight of stairs and into my apartment, which was no small feat given that the package weighed about 300 lbs.
