After way too long, I'm settling in on a tv stand:

http://www.crutchfield.com/p_494VSC2...h=2126&tp=1139


Just thought I'd post for any comments before I pull the trigger.


I went with a stand over wall mount for ease of installation and flexibility and since I'd have to get a stand for all the inputs anyway.


This deal is for the stand at $475 w/free shipping after a billing promotion.

I would be worried about the glass with a 65" screen. I would suggest getting a stand with a wood top. I admittedly don't like glass tables anyway.

Thanks to both responders.


I don't know what to do on the wires - I figure the components will bloch the view of the, and the angle perhaps.


On the glass - it's rated for 175 pounds, so shouldn't I be fine? The main worry is that I live next to the Hayward fault.


(For an idea why I mention that, in 2001 FEMA reported the top three likely disasters for the country - a terrorist attack on a big city, a big hurricane on the southern coast, and a big earthquake on the west coast. Two out of three happened and the third is when not if. So I have to expect that free standing, the tv is likely doomed to fall and smash when that happens. No, I hadn't thought about this much until writing this response. Hm.)

well, when our hayward fault goes (hi neighbor-ino!) as the house we lives in is a crumpled, burning wreck around us, making sure the tv didnt fall over may not be concern #1.....

Of course it is, you may have to give up your AVS card for that

Thought I'd post a few of the stands I considered:


This one looks nice and slowed me down buying, and the price is nice at $344, but the silver color probably isn't quite the right one:

Similar in style to the one I'm planning on, but $700 (at other merchants), good reviews on quality and 5 minutes to assemble 5 pieces:

The bargain choice - tempting for the price at $272 on sale and perfectly functional with 300 pounds allowed for the tv but I just can't see it looking that good:

Interesting techno look, but $859:

Not bad for the glass and gray look, $400: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-uPzpyAB...VS2762&g=15730
