For example, a VESA200 TV will have 200mm between each of the mounting holes and it is critical the mounting bracket on the TV mount stand is capable of supporting this VESA fitting both horizontally and vertically.
These TV stands have grown in popularity since they were originally conceived in the mid-2000's. However, this type of stand can be more complex to install than a glass or wooden TV stand.
Although, it might not be right for you if you don't like the look of your equipment on open shelves.
The purpose of this guide is to identify the different types of TV stands and TV cabinets which are available on the market and to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each of the different types of TV furniture.
With a traditional glass or wooden stand, your TV will often be standing on the top of the unit (unless you have it separately wall mounted). Therefore, this leaves less surface area to place your external hardware.
This type of stand will usually leave the top surface free for placing your Blu-ray player, or even your centre speaker if you have a surround sound speaker system.
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.
