This stand is a great option when you are looking for a less bulky, lighter weight storage solution for your basic entertainment needs. This stand can hold up to 64-inch flat screen televisions, it has a center drawer as well as two side shelves with slatted sliding doors. The slatting allows for remote control access of media inside. It’s lighter in weight (it clocks in at 43 pounds) because it’s constructed of a combination of particleboard, walnut laminate, and solid wood legs. If you have a lot of heavier equipment, however, this might not be the best choice because of the particleboard construction.
