The NFV249's wire management system keeps cables out of sight for a clean, uncluttered appearance. The oversized top shelf is specifically designed for a TV, and its sides are angled toward the rear to allow the stand to fit in a corner.

Nice low level rack for your audio video equipment

Written by: PeterJ from Austin, TX on May 22, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Most AV racks are tall and narrow, designed to allow easy access to equipment without stooping, however we needed, or wanted, a rack that was lower in height. It had to be wide and lower to meet our aesthetic requirements. Although primarily designated as a TV standard with room for equipment below it, we deployed the rack for our AV equipment with our TV monitor mounted on a separate stand with the center speaker mounted below it. The rack is well made and very easy to assemble. Wood quality it good with all the metal fittings well made and assembling it was very easy. The glass shelves are tempered glass and easily hold the equipment we have (Pre amp, power amp, 2 x Blue Ray and DVD players, Apple TV, Roku). The overall appearance is one that is aesthetically pleasing and high quality despite its very moderate price. Recommended.

Pros: Well made and easy to assemble. Looks higher quality than price would suggest. One of the few TV stands that doubles as an AV rack Nicely finished parts.

Cons: None at this price point.

Perfect TV Stand

Written by: Cory S from Texas on December 22, 2015

Another great product, stable, clean, looks professional. Note: The glass is smoke not clear, which is what I wanted, but it can be hard to tell from the pictures. Also, Crutchfield support is amazing! (See cons)

Pros: Clean, Sleek, Stable, Glass is smoke.

Cons: Packing from the manufacturer can be a problem, Sanus does not provide enough packing material, so watch out for scratched wood/glass. Thankfully, Crutchfield support was amazing and they took care of it with no problem (it did take a few tries to get undamaged items, but in the end everything was perfect!)

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It was easy to assemble and complements my 65 inch Sony TV. One surprise when I went behind the stand to connect the tv to an outlet: getting back out from behind the stand, my leg accidentally knocked the middle shelf down to the lower shelf. It didn't sound good at all! However, apparently no damage occurred. Was lucky no electronics were on the bottom shelf. And - the shipping box arrived damaged with no visible damage to the TV stand packed inside the box.

Pros: Easy to assemble. Looks great!

Cons: Botton 2 tempered glass shelves are not adjustable & not firmly attached.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A beautiful piece of furniture! Only one little minor scratch on it that could be "fixed" with some touch up paint. Package arrived partly damaged - the box looked like it was in a war (perhaps it was sitting in the warehouse for some time) but the rest of the items were in good condition. Assembly instructions were "visual" , no written directions to support the diagrams, which would have been worthwhile because some of the "pictures" were deceiving (what I thought was a metal bracket was actually a soft piece of plastic that when bent, took the appearance of a bracket). Once you got the alignment correct everything fit together nicely.

Pros: Beautiful piece of furniture, that assembled nicely once you understood the diagrams and how the pieces should be aligned. Crutchfield was excellent with their technical support.

Cons: Packaging was damaged, small scratch needed to be touched up

Great A/V Stand!

Written by: Bobby from Frederick, MD on July 17, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Sanus A/V stand is a great piece of furniture and effortlessly holds my receiver, power conditioner, cable box, and Playstation. The build quality is great and the piece was easy to assemble. Mocha stain matches my dark hardwoods in the living room and my kitchen cabinets. Crutchfield service was great and the included shipping was much appreciated, as the total package is close to 80 pounds (glass shelves are heavy).

Pros: -Easy to Assemble -Solid Construction -Real hardwood, mocha stain looks great -Bottom shelf is tall enough to accommodate my A/V receiver

Cons:

Low Profile AV Rack

Written by: StevenB from Southeast PA on October 20, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This took a little work to put together but it wasn't complicated and everything fit as it should. The resulting piece is well constructed and sturdy and looks good under a 60 inch TV. The top shelf floats, no edges to hold it in place, so you have to position it to get it evenly centered. Three glass shelves hold the AVR, CD/DVD and Blu Ray players and cable box which still leaves the top shelf for my center speaker, remotes, etc.

Pros: Study, looks good

Cons: A little work to put together

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It is easy to assemble, looks good. Uneven painting on one of its legs, some chipped paint on another leg. Kept it because it looks better than the last one and I really needed to put my tv on something solid. It doesn't ship well.

Very sturdy

Written by: Gary from Fresno, CA on September 28, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to assemble and very sturdy. I would have liked to see a little more depth on the shelves as the equipment is big these days and I had to center my big Dennon amp so the wiring hung out of the back. If this unit had a closed back, the product would not have worked out. Still satisfied with the purchase and the price was great.

Sanus NFV249 Great TV Stand, Great Value

Written by: David from Fairfax, VA on January 11, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Sanus NFV249 is a great TV stand and a great value. It was easy to assemble, it is very sturdy, and looks great in our family room. Our new 52 inch Sony LCD HDTV fits perfectly on the top shelf. There is plenty of room for all our A/V components on the other two shelves. We spent much more time looking for the right TV stand than we did for our new TV. We have purchased BDI TV stands in the past. I am as happy with the Sanus NFV249 as I am with our last BDI stand which cost twice as much.

Written by: Jonathan from Wailuku, HI on November 1, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just received my NFV249 stand in the Mocha color. My review echoes the previous ones. The stand was very well packed with no damage. Assembly was quick and easy once I decided to read the instructions. It is very lightweight yet structurally strong, holding my new Panasonic 54" plasma display and heavy Onkyo receiver. The mocha color is beautiful and is more like a dark cherry. The color and smoked glass give it a elegant and contemporary look, making it look more expensive than what it actually is. My only minor quip is that the shelves are not very deep, forcing me to put my heavy receiver in the middle of the bottom shelf. Overall, the stand is worth every penny (especially with the free shipping from Crutchfield) and highly recommended.

Great TV Stand!

Written by: Rick from Raleigh, NC on May 23, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

At first, I was unsure about glass shelving. But, when this arrived and I got it assembled, it was a very nice addition to the room. The mocha finish is almost a dark-medium cherry and perfectly complements the other furniture. The box had a little damage, but the contents were undamaged. Although moderately priced, it looks really expensive. I also purchased a Sony Home Theater System for my 46" Sony Bravia. This stand is the perfect match and the entire setup looks very expensive and is very functional. I still rate this unit as a 5 star, but I would like to see a rear center support with the cable holes and cover for a additional space to hide wiring and cables. Thanks again Crutchfield for a great product and super service! I hope this helps other shoppers as well.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great stand, while the packaging looked like it had been through it and back( I thought for sure the glass was cracked) to my surprise everything was in great condition. Holds up my 42" Panasonic Plasma with no problems. I only wish the stand was a bit deeper as my Pioneer reciever barely fits, the plastic covers over the back are kind of flimsy and dont seem like they will last like the rest of the unit. But other than that, initial setup took me about 25 minutes by myself, it is really easy to put together. The cherry finish looks awesome and matches my Polk LSI great.

Written by: David from Ellington, Connecticut on December 23, 2008

I ordered this stand 12/20/08 and recieved it today, 12/23/08. I was not expecting it to be delivered until after Christmas, which was a very pleasant surprise! The packaging was in very good condition and nothing was broken. The furniture was so well packed that unless the box had been dropped from the truck, I doubt it would have been damaged anyway. I took an inventory of the parts and the box contained exactly what it should have. Assembly was very easy. I did it by myself in 45 minutes. This is a great looking stand. I was concerned about ordering the Mocha color, but it is beautiful - more like a dark Cherry finish. The quality is exceptional. It is an inexpensive stand that does not look cheap at all. It is sturdy enough for what it is designed for. It is lightweight structurally and the glass is where most of the weight is, but it is very solid and strong enough to hold my LCD and its many componants. I am extremely pleased with this purchase and feel I got a good value as well as a great looking and functional TV/ componant stand.

Worth the Money

Written by: Crawford from Western New York on December 3, 2008

I bought this stand almost three years ago and it's holding up very well. The assembly was a bit tricky[we needed a second person to hold the metal cross members still while the other one tightened them down], but it looks good and is very sturdy. The only complaint I have it that the little "pads" that are supposed to stick on between the frame and the glass like to slip out from between them as soon as any weight is put on the glass. At first I was worried this would cause the glass to break, but so far, so good [and I've even moved it once]. Well worth the money and a nice piece of furniture to boot.

Excellent, Detailed Review

Written by: Bruce from Orlando, Florida on November 23, 2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We bought this, to match some component stereo cabinets, from 2003. Which we also purchased from Crutchfield, they were sitting beside our large projection. We upgraded to the Samsung 52" LN52A650 , which on its stand fits 99.99% perfect. The tv itself, hangs over a couple inches on each side but, the stand sits entirely on the glass with 8-10 inches on each side. The reason for the only 99.99% perfect is that they changed the screw covers on the front, from the 2003 component stereo stands. Other than that, its a complete match to the stereo cabinet models and is very strong and isn't going anywhere. If it holds up like the stereo component racks have done, this stand will be here for a very long time. The highth of the middle shelf, isn't as large as the bottom shelf so, my polk audio CS5 has to sit on the bottom shelf, which doesn't make for a great center channel experience, a great stand all around! Hope I've been able to help fellow shoppers!

good quality stand

Written by: Jason from Mantua, NJ on November 8, 2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First of all the stand was shipped to my house in less than 48 hours from the time I ordered it. Not only was this more convienent than buying at my local store, but it was cheaper with the free shipping and no Jersey sales tax. The stand itself is very nice. The black finish seems very durable and it looks even better in person than it did in pictures on the site. Its not cheap mdf construction which is why it costs 329 vs 100-200 dollars. Well worth the money. Why put thousands of dollars of equipment on a cheap looking stand when you can show it off in style?

Nice Stand, Could Be Improved

Written by: Geary from Bethesda MD on October 6, 2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The packaging arrived in good condition, with only minor tears in the external cardboard. Checking parts before assembly disclosed several missing bolts. I called Sanus, and the SCR assured me they would send out replacements, but I never got them. Luckily, I have an excellent independent hardware store nearby and they had the proper metric bolts although in dark bronze rather than black - no problem, since the bolts are on the rear. Assembly is relatively easy. The topmost glass shelf had a slight nick on the front edge! However, I couldn't bear to send it back, so I just turned the glass upside down and the nick is less noticeable. Glass was packed incorrectly - I did not find any shard in the packing. The stand does NOT have leg levelers, which could be a problem on uneven floors. I anticipated the problem by buying plastic glides and washers that I could use to shim the gliders, but the washers were not needed. I used the gliders because the legs do not have any glides on them and I did not want to scratch my wood floor. They also add an additional 5/8" in height which is good. Two design issues: 1. The stand is too low. This is not a problem limited to Sanus, however. I don't understand why they make these stands so low. Even with my 50" plasma, the screen center is slightly below eye level - which most professionals and AV enthusiasts donot recommend. 2. the "cord raceways" could be improved-they are difficult to install.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Like another reviewer, my first package arrived damaged from shipping, and Crutchfield took care of the situation immediately. The stand is beautiful, and very functional. The description says it will accommodate up to 46" TVs, but my Panasonic 50" plasma fits perfectly on top. I have purchased other Sanus HT products (their speaker stands are excellent too) and highly recommend them to anyone looking for good quality furniture that won't break the bank like some other expensive brands.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Crutchfield is great. First package arrived in damaged condition through no fault of Crutchfield. When I called they took care of the situation immediately and reshipped, no questions asked. Second package came 2 days later and was perfect. Shelves have to be built but was easy to do. I now have a 46" Samsung sitting on top of this very sturdy furniture. Highly recommended.
