I was pleased with the unit. Installation was fairly easy; the only thing that caught me by surprise was that the 3 screws that affix it to the wall required a socket wrench, but once I obtained one it went smoothly. Unfortunately I feel that the two ends are slightly off-level, so even those the wall bracket claimed to be level, the arms are off by a slight bit, so there was an unexpected tilt to the TV by about a degree or two. I'm pleased with the many sets of mounting sizes; if I ever need to switch to a new TV, the mount should still be useable!
Used to mount a 23" LCD. This is a very well built unit. I was at *** and looked at their $90.00 one and this one is just as nice. The only defect: There are little black plastic trim pieces used to cover the top and bottom end of the bracket hinges. The one on the bottom nearest the TV doesn't really fit and so it falls out. Since it's not really visible unless you REALLY look, it's not a problem. As others mentioned, it is a nice design, The VESA mounting plate (that star shaped thingy on the end) is not attached to the mount. It is part of a separate component that slides down into a little track on the end of the mount allowing you to easily mount or dismount the TV. It makes installation very easy. One thing to consider when installing this is how much wall space you have from the bottom of the mounting plate to the ceiling. I installed it above a set of windows, so I couldn't put the wall mounting plate any lower than the top of the window trim. In this case, I have 14-1/4" from top of window trim to ceiling. This ended up just barely working with a 23" Samsung B2330HD. Here's why: Note that each articulating arm segment increases the height from the wall mounting plate. During the install, you attach the arm to the wall without the VESA mounting plate. You then, mount the VESA plate to the back of the TV then attach it to the articulating arm by raising it a couple of inches above the mount and sliding it down into place. I was initially concerned that I wouldn't have the room to raise it above the mount without hitting the ceiling, but it worked with about an inch to spare. If you've got a limited space as I did, you might want to take some accurate measurements before drilling into your wall. All in all, I am very happy with this unit and would recommend it.
