This is going to annoy most clients.

Looks like a backward tilt, and no center pedestal base.

I couldnít even tell you the last time I mounted a TV on its stand.

I am actually tossing a 55" Sony 720 on a desk this afternoon with the stand. So far this year, that means I have put every TV we have sold on its included stand. :) But I could not care less what the stand looks like.

Believe it or not, we still do tons of TV's on stands. Hopefully it fits on the playbase.

Itís a little more trouble to manage inventory, but I would prefer that stands were an option. I donít like all of the waste associated with tossing unwanted stands. The same with that large package of hardware included with each wall mount. Iíve got boxes and boxes of the stuff.

Edit: darn autocorrect picking the wrong word.

agreed. you would think as much as manufactureres like to penny pinch, they would have figured out their shipping boxes could be MUCH smaller with no stand, charge more for stand. Separate box. That day may come. However, Im sure outside our industry the vast majority sit on a stand. Bummer.

I don't believe it tilts backwards... certainly no mention of that in any of the CES coverage.
No one is ever really happy with a stand, there's always one scenario that doesn't work for a particular scenario. Impossible to please everyone blahblah.

^ ^ ^ + At least 12, maybe 25.

I generally agree with you, but after I bought some metric nuts, a few years of saving extra mount hardware made me able to send about thirty pounds of assorted metric nuts and bolts ahead to my project in the Middle East. Where I went, there is no such thing as a stocked hardware store!

I always tape the table stand hardware bag to the stand(s) and stash them somewhere in my client's houses.

Because many times I have been called back years later to take down the family room tv, replace it with the latest and greatest and put the old one on a table stand for the spare bedroom, kids playroom etc...
I am a trained professional..... Do not attempt this stunt at home.

I have started keeping one of these in stock. Originally for televisions that went from the wall to a table top, but now I also find them useful for raising the TV an inch or two when a sound bar would cover the bottom of the screen.

Wish the mount makers INCLUDED a set of nuts to make use of leftover hardware, what would it cost, .50? Or sell an add on kit, 20 of each.
