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.
Our buying guide for TV stands covers all the options you have when looking for TV furniture, and gives you an overview of the benefits of each type.
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.
We will also highlight factors which should be checked before purchasing any kind of TV or AV furniture.
The thickness of the glass, the type of cable management and the weight of the TV you are going to put on it are all part of the equation.
As an alternative to a wall mounted television, mount TV stands were also developed. These are essentially a traditional TV stand with an incorporated bracket giving a similar look to a wall mounted TV.
