I want a flat-panel TV pedestal. In particular, I want something that is adjustable in height.

This is the best thing I've found so far, but $700 is a bit steep.

Anyone know of something more reasonable?

Edit: Here's an idea. What about getting two of these, mounting them back to back, and then putting an adjustable wall bracket on them? Am I insane?

There's a check-box to see all of the floor stands. It seems 700 is a good price. I wonder why the hell the price on these things is so steep!

The DIY thing might work, but I'd fix them - very securely - to a floor plate that extends forward somewhat beyond the centre of gravity of the TV, otherwise physics is going to take command of toppling.

I imagine the high price of the $700 solution is related to the cost of making something that is genuinely robust and likely to remain so for a long time. Like office furniture - where you can buy a an "Office Chair" from Staples or wherever for next-no-nothing, but an Aeron is going to cost you. (I'm considering a size C Aeron just now...)

The bookcases would work. It's a heck of a lot more aesthetically pleasing than a pole with a TV on it. ;)

What did you end up doing with your lamp, now that you've brought up DIY.

Unless you put a lot of weight into the bottom of the bookcases, I don't think they'd be very stable at all. The stands put the center of gravity inside the base outline, whereas your bookcases would have the center of gravity outside of their outline and be inherently less stable.

But it looks like you've found a good reasonable alternative, and it has wheels, which is a definite plus.
