3 Facts About OEM Big Screen TV Stands

A lot of people are searching the internet for replacement TV stands.  Why?  Consider these 3 facts:

1.  You should know that the company that made your television could care less if you need a replacement TV stand. They are in the business of selling you a television. Most companies offer replacement parts in general because they have to as they work with warranty companies who need replacements to fulfill the conditions of a customer’s warranty. If it weren’t for them, there would be little motivation for them to offer replacement parts to the general public.

2.  TV stands have a 1:1 relationship to the model they come with. There is no secondary market for television stands since very few models use the same stand. This means that a company would have to make several hundred different molds and would have to spend a lot of time and money to make sure they all work. Frankly that’s not going to happen. If you don’t like the color, shape, size or anything else about the TV stand you’re stuck. That’s just the way it is.

3.  Your TV stand will not be available forever. Realizing that TV manufacturers aren’t entirely thrilled with being in the replacement parts space it won’t seem so farfetched that sometimes they stop making parts even if they are critical to the performance of their product. Even if your television is only 3 or 4 years old you may find that the manufacturer no longer sells the stand which came with your television. Sony, Samsung, and Panasonic are some of the most reliable as far as parts go. Sharp, Toshiba, RCA aren’t bad either depending on the model. All of the other manufacturers are a gamble. They typically don’t even make the television they market under their brand and usually their contacts don’t include support for replacement parts.
