Some TV mount stands have an extra small shelf attached to the central pole which is intended to be used for a centre speaker. This can be particularly useful as, in some setups, placing a centre speaker can sometimes be a problem.
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.
In the early days of flat panel televisions, the vast majority of TV units were glass TV stands.
