In the example above of the Sauder Harbor View corner TV stand pictured above - the rear is flat with just the edges shaped for a corner - so that gives more room for equipment inside.
Flat screen TV cabinets (sometimes called a credenza) are a slightly different option when compared to the other types of stand discussed here.
This type of stand enables you to 'hang' your TV in a similar way to using a TV wall mount. But, it allows much more flexibility when it comes to perfectly positioning the screen - or even moving it completely.
They have brackets which allow you to hang your flat screen TV from a central pole - very similar to attaching the TV to a wall.
However, a wooden TV stand brings its own issues such as they often have back panels which make it difficult for ventilation, access and running the cables.
Another good reason to consider a mount-style stand is the fact that, for models that include the shelves for your equipment underneath, your TV will be fixed above the shelves rather than sitting on the top shelf.
