Looking for a new TV stand.

I'm looking for a new TV stand. I have some guidelines as to what I'm looking for, and I'm having a hard time finding something that meets them.
28 inches wide, at the most. My current stand just fits into the space it's in now (my room is kind of small), and even another half inch would be too wide.
The TV stand I have in my bedroom now is too low for me, and I'd like to replace it with something taller. I got my current TV stand at Target about four years ago, and while it's served me well since then, it's time to retire it.
This is what I'm looking for:
Around 30 inches high. My current stand is 17 and a half inches high. 30 is about what I'm shooting for; that would put my TV at around eye level for most of the time I'm in here.
15 inches deep. Right now, I'm rocking an old 20" TV/VCR combo. At some point in the not too distant future, I'm planning to replace this with a ~23 inch LCD, but that's a ways off yet.
Black. All of my furniture is black and silver, and I'd like to continue that trend. Furthermore, most of it is IKEA furniture--I worked there for awhile, and it suits my needs just fine. And I do so love my aesthetics.
A price of $80-100. I'm a poor college student, and this is about the ceiling of what I can spend.
I've taken a look at the websites of Target, Best Buy, and IKEA, but I can't find anything that suits my needs. Do any of you have/know of a TV stand that fits what I've outlined?
