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.
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.
Go to my in-depth guide to find out more information about choosing glass flat panel TV stands.
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.
