Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve covered the best cheap TVs, sound bars, and subwoofers, here we’re zeroing in on the best TV consoles, as reviewed on Amazon, to help you organize your home theater system. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best TV Console for Small Spaces

Convenience Concepts Designs2Go 3-Tier TV Stand
$45 at Amazon

“Love this TV stand. It’s compact enough to fit in my apartment, light to carry, and super stable. It has a modern look that matches perfectly with my white furniture. The best part is that it took less than five minutes to assemble, and I’m usually terrible with setting up furniture. Could not recommend this more.”

Best Solid-Wood TV Consoles

Leick Riley Holliday Mission Tall 50-Inch TV Stand
$277 at Amazon

“Most beautiful and well-made piece of furniture we ever bought online or in store for that matter!! Unbelievable quality, great packaging, and ALL THE PARTS were there!! It is darker than picture but the gorgeous wood matches our cherry furniture very well. If you look at pictures and follow directions it goes together in 30 minutes or less!! FANTASTIC FURNITURE, FANTASTIC COMPANY. Wish we needed more furniture!! Would definitely order from this company AGAIN!!! AWESOME.”

Leick Westwood Cherry Hardwood 60-Inch TV Stand
$367 at Amazon

“Wow is all I can say. It’s not often that an item actually looks better in person, but this does. And the genius who engineered this product, making it incredibly easy to assemble using nothing but the included Allen wrench, should win a medal. This is a great size, and so practical! I was so sick of all of my electronics being covered with dust all the time — this solves the problem completely and immediately. The solid doors on the ends provide much needed extra storage. The huge cord-management slots and holes are a major bonus! If you have a big TV like I do, hanging on [the] wall like mine is, you NEED a longer piece under it and not a dinky little piece like I had. This is fabulous!”

Simpli Home Warm Shaker Solid Wood 72-Inch TV Media Stand
$445 at Amazon

“This is a great product. I purchased it because of the attractive and very functional design, and because it is real wood. It was expensive, but worth it. It is a very good-looking piece of furniture. The wood is a silky deep honey color: very pretty and substantial. There is plenty of storage for components. It is extremely strong when put together, although I was told it was not easy to put together. It is held together by screws, and is very sturdy. It looks beautiful and makes the TV a cozy part of the living space.”

Best TV Consoles With Built-In Stand

Whalen Furniture Santa Fe 3-in-1 TV Stand
$199 at Amazon

“This TV stand is great! It was relatively easy to put together and is very sturdy. I installed my 55” Plasma TV on the bar and it hasn’t moved since I set it up. There’s plenty of room for all my electronics, including a sound bar and the wires all tuck up neatly behind the bar so I don’t have to look at a snarl of cables and wires running down the wall. I would recommend this to anyone.”

Whalen Furniture Flat Panel 41-Inch TV Stand and Entertainment Console
$88 at Amazon

“Hands down, the best value for your money. You will NOT be disappointed. This thing is SOLID and easily holds my 55-inch Samsung, plus other devices. As others have stated, the actual wood color is DARKER than pictured here, but in my case that is a GOOD thing and I was counting on it. I couldn’t be happier with this entertainment center. There are a lot of parts, but the instructions are very clear and the parts are labeled in their own self contained ‘pouches’ for easy retrieval. Other than a screwdriver, all necessary tools are included. You will NOT regret this purchase.”

Best TV Consoles With Storage

Comfort Smart Wrangler Sliding Barn Door TV Stand
$236 at Amazon

“Okay seriously … I have spent about two or three months looking at TV stands at places like Marshall’s hoping to specifically buy one of these sliding door TV stands… Let me tell you now … this is by far THE BEST purchase I have ever made on Amazon. I was overwhelmed at first that I would have to put this monster together but with the easy numbered diagram instructions and the little baggies holding each type of part with numbered stickers on everything it was super easy! It took me two hours because I was doing it alone, but, man, this thing is sturdy and of great quality! I truly love it and for the price it was well worth it. Highly recommended!!!”

Southern Enterprises Remington TV/Media Stand
$238 at Amazon

“This is one of those rare occasions when a company just about gets it perfect. Assembly was a dream and most screws had one extra one included. There was even an extra wood dowel. The unit’s shelves are adjustable and the metal pins fit the holes perfectly. I can’t tell you how many times I have assembled things and this has not happened. THIS IS ONE EXCELLENT UNIT!!! I love this media stand!!!!!”

South Shore Floating Wall-Mounted Media Console
$205 at Amazon

“Amazing! The first time I saw this stand, I knew I had to have it. If you’re looking for a modern look, and something that will completely open up a room, don’t hesitate to buy this stand. We have a smaller living room and by mounting the TV, and having this floating stand underneath, you wouldn’t believe how much roomier it feels. Easy assembly, and mounting is pretty basic. (Make sure you have someone assisting you so that you can hang it on the bracket. It’s made very solid and pretty heavy.) Have a nice level on hand so that you can ensure that it’s even because you’ll be able to notice if it’s leaning to a side. Buy this stand and you won’t be disappointed!”

Best TV Consoles With Open Shelving

Cross Mill TV Stand
$67 at Amazon

“This is exactly what I wanted and at a fraction of the price that I expected to pay. The pieces are thick and heavy, yet the stand is very easy to assemble. It took only 20 minutes and I love the color. I am buying another, in black, for the family room. You cannot beat the quality and clean look for the price.”

Prepac Black Vasari Flat Panel Plasma/LCD TV Console
$104 at Amazon

“Could not be happier! This is a very high quality piece. Solid, durable, sturdy construction. Excellent storage capacity. It is perfect for our smaller home. Fits exceptionally in a corner next to a sliding window and doesn’t cover the window at all. It is lower to the ground which helps make it have a minimalist feel. Very modern style. We LOVE it! And you can’t beat the price at all! It took 45 to 60 minutes to build and not a scratch or imperfection on any part. Excellent shipping protection in the box!”

WE Furniture 58-Inch Wood TV Stand Storage Console
$110 at Amazon

“For the price, this is an excellent piece. It is so streamlined, simple and attractive. It has the cable holes in the back so you don’t see any messy wires. It is a put-it-together-yourself piece, but it is by far the most organized, non-confusing do-it-yourself piece of furniture I’ve ever assembled. It took me right around two hours total, and I went at my own pace. All of the pieces and hardware were clearly labeled and organized and the directions were very simple. If you are willing to put some work into it and don’t mind that it is not real wood, it is an excellent buy for the price.”
