This is our first experience with the TV Wall Mount. We were very impressed with the durability and great buy for this item. It was a gift for our elder friend who is in an assisted living. She has a small room and she needed to be able to have her tv at a level she could see in her wheelchair. She, also, needed it to be easy to move at different angles and a corner mount. Which this was perfect and met all her needs. Great item!
I knew we wanted a wall mount that was adjustable, but this is so much better than I expected. We have a 53 inch TV and this holds it very well . It adjusted to the perfect angle for viewing. Which is very important for me since I have neck issues.
I'm paraphrasing from the handyman who chose this for us to purchase and then installed it when it arrived: apparently, the mount is not as wide as he thought, in that it's barely wide enough to ensure you can hit studs on either side. He was expecting it to be longer. Also, our plasma TV is a few years old and he had to dig into his cache of screws in order to find screws that would fit our TV. The ones that came with the mount didn't have the right thread count. If it were me doing this, I would have been totally lost and frustrated.
Purchased this for a 55" HDTV; although a bit heavy (and it would need to be to support a large TV) it was easy to mount and folds away flush to the wall when needed. Adjusts in several different ways to get the best angle for the television.
Several years ago we bought one of these from Overstock with 2 elbow arms and loved it - until we moved and the place we wanted to use it had built-in book shelves and angled walls that kept us from centering the 55" TV where we wanted it. We were thrilled to find the same manufacturer with the single off-set arm solution and great extension. With the size of the back plate you are sure to hit at least one stud which makes my husband happy. The greater weight bearing capacity also gives us assurance that the arm is unlikely to weaken over time. We couldn't find anything like it locally and what was available was more expensive with much weaker components.
