    Looks like an alphason stand, from what i know they're expensive for a reason, they are very well made and use toughened glass etc

    Hi guys, my first post here so be nice :)

    My Samsung PS42S5SD will arrive today and I plan to buy this Alpason Aragon stand (£270) to get that hanging feeling and to have it as close to the wall as possible. We're renting, so can't attach it to the wall itself. I hope this stand supports the Sammy.

    Wall mounts should all be fairly similar, just have the mountings spaced differently, on that alphason you can adjust the height of the back bracket and it should align to the wall mount holes, it could be a bit fiddly to install but you know it would look bling bling when its all in place. The cable tidying holes are a bonus too, just dont get long cables too long, otherwise it'll be a nightmare trying to get it tidy :thumbsup:

    How do you propose to support the XDE? I've got an XDE pedestal support that is boxed and unopened that I'll be looking to sell. PM if interested.

    Thanks Jim_Fear, I did place an order on that stand yesterday. Not in stock, but they expect it to be during next week. I got the plasma on the floor until then.
    Will take some pics when it's all set up and post somewhere here.

    just an opinion but panel tvs look awful on silver chipboard stands, they look much more suited to the glass stands, minimalistic/futeristic as opposed to that`ll do
