5. Atlantic Centipede Game Storage and TV Stand
Our pick for best TV stand for small TVs

atlantic-centipede-gaming-tv-stand

The Centipede was deliberately built for console gamers. The primary material used to construct the Centipede is steel wire, so you can bet it will hold up to a thorough beating. An angry chuck of the controller after a 0-10 death spree? No problem, this stand will hold strong.

It has six controller holders, a center shelf that has enough room to fit 3 vertically standing consoles, and game racks on either side (which combined hold up to 12 games). There is also a convenient place to hang headphones and the like situated to the left and right of the TV stand. The aforementioned shelf fits up to 37” TVs and supports a weight of up to 80 pounds. It is pretty easy to assemble so you don’t have to dread the day it arrives and you have to put it together.

Unfortunately, this unit does not include a mount for your TV. Still— well played, Atlantic. They once again came through with a well-thought-out product that serves us gamers well.

High Ground View:

  • Type: Console Hub

6. Ameriwood Galaxy TV Stand
Our pick for best small TV stand

altra-furniture-galaxy-tv-stand-best-gaming-tv-stands-629x1024

If you’ve got a behemoth of a TV, this may be your best bet (especially if you’re looking for a mounting solution). It fits up to 50 inch TVs and has a weight capacity of 70 pounds. A word of caution: this one has a glass shelf. If you frequently get into wrestling matches around your TV area, you may want to go with a different option.

High Ground View:

  • Type: Console Hub
  • Capacity: Up to 42 inch TVs, 100 lbs
  • Construction: Wood and Steel Frame & Glass Surface

7. Atlantic Phoenix TV Gaming Stand
Our pick for best TV stand for dorm rooms

atlantic-tv-video-game-stand

Surprise! Another product from Atlantic. The key difference between this one and the Centipede is the TV mount. Furthermore, the TV mount unit can rotate 120 degrees. This is nice because no matter where you and your buddies are in the room, you can get the right viewing angle for gaming and watching movies.

The mount supports up to a 42 inch TV with a weight limit of 100 pounds. The shelving doesn’t hold quite as much as the Centipede, but you still have a dedicated spot for 2 controllers, 6 games, and 3 consoles. It also has a cage for a power strip. The really cool thing about the TV mount is that it can be adjusted anywhere from 22 inches high to a max height of 50 inches. This allows you to tweak it to just the right height for optimally viewing from your chair or couch.

High Ground View:

  • Type: Console Hub
  • Capacity: Up to 42 inch TVs, 100 lbs
  • Construction: Steel X-Leg Frame & PVC

8. Ameriwood Carson TV Stand
Our pick for best TV stand under $100

altra-furniture-carson-tv-stand-best-gaming-tv-stands-1024x630

Built with a sturdy metal frame, the Carson by Altra is a great all-purpose option. This is one of the most popular and best-selling TV stands for two main reasons. First, it’s very affordable. And second, it features a smart design (with shelving and cable management). Oh, and it looks sharp to boot!

The 2 large open shelves in the center are flanked by doors on either side, hiding the storage space within each. The chrome accents very nicely match the two color options: a two-tone black & cherry or espresso. As for capacity? This stand accommodates larger TV’s up to 50 inches.

Ameriwood does offer a longer version that fits up to 70 inch TVs, but it is significantly more expensive. Maybe they reckon owners of 70 inch TVs have a lot more cash to shell out, but whatever the case, it is also a gorgeous stand that does any sleek flatscreen justice.

High Ground View:

  • Type: Entertainment Center
  • Capacity: Up to 50 inch TVs, 120 lbs
  • Construction: Steel Frame & Wood Surface

9. Prepac Espresso Altus

Underneath, you’ll find a place to put games, DVDs, and Blu-Rays. Their hanging rail system makes mounting a piece of cake. Even not-so-handymen (and women) can do it. There are cutouts in the back for cables to keep a clean, minimalist look. If you’ve already got a wall-mounted TV, this can be a great complimentary piece.

Gaming TV Stand Guide Part I: General Thoughts on Gaming TV Stands

Gaming TV stands are a sensible solution for console gamers. The console-setup (TV, console, controllers, etc.) hasn’t changed for quite some time and is likely to maintain the status quo for the foreseeable future. These stands are designed to hold all the essentials and make them easily accessible.

Atlantic Centipede Game Storage TV-Stand - 37" TV Stand, Durable Wire Construction with Game Storage, Organize your Games, Controllers, 4 Game Consoles and More ON 45506142B in Red

One of the main decisions you need to make before a final purchase is whether or not you want one with a TV mount. If your TV has a detachable stand on the bottom of it and meets the dimension requirements, it is generally pretty easy to mount.

Gaming TV Stand Guide Part II: Choosing the Best Gaming TV Stand

How do you choose the best gaming TV stand for your setup?

To make this process easier, we’ve taken the variety of options out there and split them up into a few categories. Let’s take a look.

Game Rack & Solo Stands

Level Up Stealth Game Tower

A game rack is a small shelf-life stand that’s built to hold your gaming titles and/or accessories. These range from small wire stands to giant bookcase-like shelves.

A solo stand is a simple TV stand with no bells or whistles. It holds your TV, but you’ll still need a mount and/or hub to set it on. These are great for folks seeking height or tilt adjustment mechanisms and easy adaptability.

These are gaming TV accessories more than anything else. That’s because you’ll still need a console hub or entertainment center to achieve a full setup.

Verdict: Game racks & solo stands are an important addition to all TV gaming setups.

Console Hub

console-hubs-gaming-tv-stands

These video game stands are mainly constructed with very durable materials. They are made to optimize smaller spaces. The theme here is to do more with less, yet still maintain order. These solutions also have storage areas that are designed with the gamer in mind. Atlantic has done an excellent job covering this niche with a few different solutions sure to please gamers on any console.

These TV stands go well in a bedroom or “game” room. They are great for kids’ and teenagers’ rooms, dorm rooms, bachelor pads, bonus rooms, and other rooms that are designated as the fun room. Many of these stands are relatively inexpensive and pretty compact.

Verdict: Console hubs work best in small spaces and game rooms.

Entertainment System

entertainment-centers-best-gaming-tv-stands

The final category of TV game stands is dubbed the entertainment center. These types of stands fall under those that would work well in a more formal space—something that the missus of the house wouldn’t mind so much. The stands in this category work well in front rooms, living rooms, and other living spaces that need to maintain a certain aesthetic quality. We don’t have interior design degrees, but we do realize that sometimes such matters can be important.

These stands commonly have the traditional shelves, drawers, and a more professional appearance to match. A bit more sizable than their compact video gaming stand counterparts, these stands are something you’re more used to seeing in most living rooms. Generally speaking, these stands have a few more parts to put together, so the assembly times trend higher.

These are gaming TV accessories more than anything else. That’s because you’ll still need a console hub or entertainment center to achieve a full setup. Still, they’re important nonetheless.

Verdict: Entertainment systems work best in large spaces and formal areas.
