So I went to Auctionmaxx to see the place in person... wow... I was expecting something along the lines of a "Factory Direct" set up, but this was even more depressing than that... I don't know if I would even try to get anything from there under normal conditions.

My experience at auctionmaxx wasn't *bad* although it was a little confusing. Inside the small & busy front area they had a group of computers where you could get the item number from their website and order it with your credit card, but for some reason once I registered a website account and my CC they make you wait a few days before you can use it to order something (??) so I just took the item number to the counter with people there, they processed it and using debit was an option to pay so i just paid for the cabinets that way. Then you go around the side and show the people at the warehouse entrance your order receipt and they bring the item out to you. I guess one other problem is that they only have a small amount of parking for such a busy place.

I have been keeping my ear to the ground on the Arcade-1up community, and word on the street has it that IKEA sells some decent end-tables that can handle about 60-70 pounds, and make decent risers as long as you are ok with the aesthetics. I believe this is the table that they refer to... most of the modders are form the US, so it may have the same name(s) but lower quality.

hope that helps.


I had a 111 lbs 30inch widescreen Tube TV on a LACK coffee table with no issues. That is the same 4 legs as the LACK Side table.
