I bought this for my 60" Vizio which is at about the max weight limit and this mount works great. It allows nearly full 90 degree viewing. (If the TV was slightly smaller full 90 would be possible). Very sturdy. I was able to install by myself although it would be easier with 2 people.
This is a really high quality flat panel wall mount. I've installed a number of mounts at my home and helped friends with theirs, so I've worked with several different types. This one is as sturdy as another that I paid about 4X more for and is even more solid. Be warned though, this sucker is HEAVY!!! It's so heavy, in fact, that I took it apart to do the actual wall installation, as the arms and tv mounting plate are so heavy, it makes it very difficult to precisely install the mounting plate on the wall. The re-assembly on the wall was a bit of a hassle, but all ended up well. It's holding up a 47" plasma flat screen in a bedroom, and the articulation feature allows it to be re-directed in multiple directions (bed, sitting area, bathroom), then return to a near flat wall position. This thing is great! While it's not the least expensive mount you can buy, it works as well as much more expensive ones and a bargain for the price. Would buy it again in a heartbeat, highly recommended!!
I purchased two of these mounts to try out on the tvs in the Living Room and Bedroom and could not be more pleased. They move pretty much any way you could want them to and will articulate so that you can tilt the tv so you always have the best picture. I actually am on overstock again today to purchase two more of them so I have one for each bedroom. If you want a sturdy tv mount that you are not going to worry about falling apart while you are asleep you want a Mount-it!
I recently purchased three of these wall mounts. We assumed we needed a professional because they where so heavy. My husband was able to hang all of them with the help of our son. We installed on 60in and two 47in they are awesome. Great Purchase
