I've been looking at TV stands and credenzas for some time now, but I didn't see anything that met my needs and was well designed. In the end, I was going to give up and build something... then I found the Prepac TV Console. At first I thought it was kind of nice looking. Height was a big thing for me. I bought a conservatively small TV, and most stands are fine for 50" behemoths, but they're too short for what I have. At 26.75" this stand was a perfect height, and the shelves looked well placed.
I had already decided to buy it when I clicked on the image to see a close-up. That's when my mind was blown. The swing-out DVD/CD racks are beautiful and the holes for cables in the back aren't holes... they're notches cut into opposing, sliding panels that let you get equipment in and out easily from the back (also affording you trivial cabling access).
I've seen a ton of TV stands over the past few months and this has to be the best one I've laid eyes on, hands-down. What's more, for the price, it's a steal!
