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.
Whichever type of TV stand that you choose, there are a number of general considerations which you should think about while you are making your decision.
The vast majority of flat panel TV’s will have a VESA fitting. This refers to the distance between the mounting holes on the back of the TV.
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.
This type of stand can also allow you to have the TV at a greater height when compared to a glass or wooden stand – which will often offer a lower viewing position when the TV is in place.
