    Received my swapbox and I've got it mounted, and I must say it looks awesome. It's definitely worth it to be able to adjust the LED lighting, so if you get one I'd recommend getting the remote control.

    As you can see, installation was easy, just used four 1 1/2 inch screws with some washers (and as you can also see, Xmen is all by himself and doesn't get to hang out with the other pins until he gets a code update!).

    The swapbox is the perfect finishing touch to the gameroom! Nice work John!

    Quoted from gweempose:

    Looks great! That power outlet couldn't be more conveniently located.

    I know, it's almost like I envisioned one of these boxes on the wall when we finished our basement a few years ago (the original intent was to plug in a phone there, but I think the swapbox looks a little better there!).

    Next best thing would be to plunk the swapbox over the power outlet and cut out a small hole in the swapbox for the outlet, that way everything would be contained inside the box and it would look perfect on the wall.

    Quoted from fattrain:

    Wow Buckles that looks amazing!!!

    I might have to get like 7 of these to line my walls and wire in some power

    Thanks fattrain! That's usually how these things work, you get 1 and think you're all good, next thing you know you've got a whole wall full and you've just done some electrical and wall renovations to make it all happen!

    Quoted from fattrain:

    I basically have an alternate XM, 2 Trons, ACDC, & TF translits framed on my wall already (in cheapy wallmart frames). I think this is a much better alternative

    I think it would look amazing if you could put those in the swapboxes and run a power line connecting them all and having the whole thing operate from one light switch. Just walk in the room, flick the switch and you've got a pretty cool thing going on. I had a translite up on the wall as well and it doesn't even compare when looking at it when lit up with the box, just adds a very nice effect. It's cool on the wall in a frame, but the light from the swapbox just makes it pop.
