With a traditional glass or wooden stand, your TV will often be standing on the top of the unit (unless you have it separately wall mounted). Therefore, this leaves less surface area to place your external hardware.
Another good reason to consider a mount-style stand is the fact that, for models that include the shelves for your equipment underneath, your TV will be fixed above the shelves rather than sitting on the top shelf.
In the example above of the Sauder Harbor View corner TV stand pictured above - the rear is flat with just the edges shaped for a corner - so that gives more room for equipment inside.
