The BlueLounge CableBin Cable Manager helps keep all your gaming accessories neat and tidy. Thanks to CableOrganizer.com Boulder Gaming Examiner was able to see this product in action first hand and review it for all you tangle-cabled gamers out there. The CableBin is exactly what it’s name denotes, a trash bin-esque container designed to keep all your cables in.
Aesthetically the CableBin looks very nice. It comes in two different wood grain finishes one lighter the other darker which blends well with whatever decorating scheme you have in your office or gaming space. Standing 15 and ½ inches tall it fits nicely under a desk. A 10.25 inch diameter allows plenty of room for power strips, extra lengths of cord and device chargers. An opening along the back of the bin easily accommodates plugged in devices and a flat top lid with cable grommet is a great place to place hubs and charging devices etc.
Functionally the bin isn't the most elegant solution to cable management. The CableBin comes with six adhesive hooks to place inside the bin for a higher level of organization. It recommends using two strips per device but it can be difficult to get your devices resting properly on the hooks. Even if you take painstaking efforts to get all your cables and devices squared away just right, one misaligned chair swivel, an absent minded kick or the effects of gravity and house goblins can leave your cables in a jumble.
What the CableBin will do very effectively is hide all your messy tangled electronics. While it may seem a bit like sweeping things under the rug the effect it will have on your office space is profound. With the CableBin there won't be any unsightly cords strung over the floor, tangled in the feet of your chair. However, you will probably still need to untangle some cables inside your bin without an excessive use of velcro strips and twist ties.
The BlueLounge CableBin Cable Manager is a great solution to messy cables, devices and peripherals. It is an aesthetically pleasing option for cable management if not complete cable organization for those that can’t have a custom designed office/ gaming space. BlueLounge’s CableBin is available at CableOrganizer.com for $76.47.
