This piece was straightforward to assemble, and looks terrific, though there is a couple of places where it is easy to put the wrong part in the wrong place. In particular, I installed the doors on the wrong sides and upside down. This meant the handles were in the right place, but the break in the edge banding is visible on top of the doors when they are open, and I had to drill new holes to hold the metal to which the magnetic door closures stick. (Unfortunately I could not correct the error by removing and re-placing the doors due to the design of the hinge - It springs into place into a hole, which makes it a one-way operation.) That mistake was on me, which is why I gave the unit five stars for being otherwise terrific for the price. Note: One non-standard thing that I did during assembly was to glue everything together with wood glue. It is solid as a rock as a result, but I do not know to what degree that made it better than it otherwise would be.
The corners can be a useful place to locate your hardware, as it utilizes an area of your room that is often wasted - and placing your equipment along a wall can often encroach too far into your living space.
If you decide to purchase a corner TV stand with a mount, you should bear in mind the stand will not fit as deep into the corner as a model without a mount. This is because brackets usually attach to the rear of the stand and you will be restricted by the width of the TV.
As mentioned above, glass corner TV stands are quite common, although there are a few wooden corner stands on the market in addition to a few enclosed corner TV cabinets.
