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.
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.
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.
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.
Some TV mount stands have an extra small shelf attached to the central pole which is intended to be used for a centre speaker. This can be particularly useful as, in some setups, placing a centre speaker can sometimes be a problem.
Not all consumers liked glass TV stands and there are now a range of wooden TV stands on the market - and these are available in the form of open TV stands and enclosed TV cabinets.
