Nice durable TV stand, easy to assemble
on November 2, 2013
I put a 58" TV on this stand and it works. The width of the mount is 30", and my VESA mounting holes are about 16" apart. So I could conceivably go larger, but then I would lose room on the top shelf. My TV is 30" tall, and I could mount it on the second-heighest hole in the brackets. I have 7" of space between the bottom of the TV and the surface of the top shelf. A larger TV would reduce this space. The stand supports 170 pounds, so LCD TVs shouldn't get that heavy.
The metal frame is sturdy. The welding isn't picture perfect, but it holds well. The glass also arrived in the packaging safely. It was easy to install on the lower two shelves because they fit between the metal frames on the sides. The top shelf was more difficult to align properly by myself. Recommend having a second person spot the alignment for you. The glass sits on rubber suction cups that you insert into the metal frame at the end of assembly.
The cable organizer holes are nice. They're a plastic mesh.
The feet can screw in or out to adjust the leveling of the stand. I tried to keep it level during assembly, but I should have just waited until the end when I was ready to put the TV on, because the weight of the TV would change the weight distribution. Not all of the feet wlil touch the foor, but the stand is nice and heavy and sturdy. I won't be moving it around much, but I definitely prefer this over a direct wall mount.
The TV mount does pivot up and down as well as left and right to some extent. It comes with an assortment of screws and standoffs so it can fit into the mounting holes of many TVs. Please check your TV manual for the right size screw to use.
The stand may seem shorter than you imagined once it's done, but after you place a TV on it, it's the right height. You get about 7" of height on each shelf. The bottom shelf is 20" deep, the middle shelf is 17" deep, and the top shelf is 14" deep.
