Review 21 for TV Stand with Mount, for TVs up to 50"

Definitely worth it

After looking all over for a TV stand that looked attractive, but wouldn't break the bank, I finally found this guy. I saw similar stands upwards of $400 (and more elaborate ones for over $1000), but I didn't want to spend that much - plus they seemed to be much larger and hulking than what I wanted. I was a little leery of buying something without seeing it in person first, but this was definitely a good purchase.
- The price was right (at that time it was $150, plus I had a $50 gift card!) - much less than other stands on the market. I love that the mount swivels... it's enough so that if I'm sitting at different parts of the room I can adjust so my lamps don't glare off the screen. I put the whole thing together myself in one evening. The only part I needed help with was lifting the TV into place (I have a 46" Sony Bravia LCD). My TV didn't fit the "typical" hole pattern, so I had to use the universal mount that is included. I can't verify that it's 100% universal, but it worked perfectly for mine. It looks great (like it costs more than it did), and is pretty sturdy. While putting it together I was a little worried about the stability, but with a TV on it I'm not concerned (I even shook the unit to be sure... which they probably don't recommend!). I don't know if I'd trust it in extenuating circumstances (such as an earthquake or rambunctious children) without additional support (which they do include hardware for, and recommend), but I'm not expecting anything like that. There is a leveling foot in each of the three corners to help with stability. There are several holes in the back "spine" to run cables through to keep everything neat.
- My complaints are fairly minor, and in some cases expected. The unit is based around the presence of the spine, and it cannot be removed (if you'd rather sit your TV on the top shelf rather than mount it). I've seen more expensive ones where the spine can be removed... but I wanted to mount the TV anyway, so not a big deal. Two of the screw holes didn't line up in different parts of the frame, so two screws were not installed. The overall structural integrity doesn't seem to be affected - there are plenty of other screws in there. It was somewhat difficult to get all of the cables to fit through the routing holes, and I had to get a little creative with stringing them through... xbox 360 connectors are too big for the holes, so I had to work backwards and bring the smaller end (composite connectors) up to the top from the lower shelf... that was interesting. As a result, I'll probably think twice before agreeing to let a friend borrow my system, because I won't want to go through the process again.
- A couple notes about setting it up:
- The hardware is arranged in labeled bags, which makes sorting through everything much easier when following the directions. They also include several different sizes of screws in case you need to use the universal mount.
- I don't really know what the spacers are for on the universal mount... but my TV has a flat, level back, so I didn't use them and it seems fine.
- I had to move my TV up (with some help to lift it) because when I first attached the frame I didn't realize that it would block some of the connectors. Moving it up a couple of screw-holes fixed the problem (there are several holes to allow for varied mounting heights). So just be aware of how the mount will cover things.
- While assembling it I though the suction cups for the glass shelves was a little kludgy, but now I actually thing it's a pretty good idea; there are no screws showing through the top or anything, and the suction is pretty strong, so I'm not concerned about them coming off unexpectedly.
- Overall, I'm definitely happy with it and would recommend to anyone who wants a relatively small, good looking, simple stand that isn't ridiculously over-priced.

Review 22 for TV Stand with Mount, for TVs up to 50"

It works

It does what it is supposed to, holds up my flat panel TV and provides space for my components. Overall fairly impressed with it so far as it looks quite expensive even though I paid a nice price for it. The only two downsides so far are that two pieces of wood were damaged when I opened the box but I did not return as once I put the TV stand together the damaged pieces were not noticeable. Other downside is the tube that holds the cabling should be wider as I only have a few components and yet I had to struggle to feed all the wires through the narrow tube.

It was a bit of a pain to put together, some screws hard to get into some holes but that is pretty normal for put it together yourself furniture. It looks very nice, does not take up a ton of room but holds what it needs to hold in a stylish way. Like the real wood (not laminate or foil). Would recommend definitely!

Glass in table was completely shattered. We discovered this after working for 2-3 hours putting the stand together. This was a birthday gift for my son so imagine his disappointment.
