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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
My guide to wood TV stands and furniture gives a more detailed look into the pros and cons of this type of stand and points out the important considerations if you are looking to buy a stand of this type.
