I was relieved to find this product and the price made me so excited. I bought a TV without a stand and did not want to mount it. I also did not want to pay for a new stand with the mounting brackets. We lucked up on a good deal for the TV and went for it but we weren't ready to purchase a new living room set. I searched the internet for a universal stand and they were mostly wall mounts and expensive anyway. I was about to give up when I found this one. That was it. End of search! It was not the best looking but does the job well. Looks good wirth my TV, easy to put together. Very well balanced. Only problem was when my husband put opposite sides on for the legs. It tilted forward and took some confusing investigation to figure it out, but perfect once we did.
Installed easily, but back of TV must be flat from one set of mounting holes to the outer edge (either top or bottom) of TV. If using with a wall mount, you use the same screws you already have with your wall mount, which worried me, as I figured it would come with slightly longer screws you could use, to make up for the slight thickness of the added bracket. But it seems plenty tight with the screws that the wall mount already came with, so likely not a concern. Well built and works very well, just as stated. Excellent price and product.
This mount is the most solid-feeling one I've used. The joints are stiff and there seems to be little, if any play in the articulation. Many units Ive seen are flimsy metal and tend to wobble as the screen is moved. Their mountings are too closely spaced or wrong-sized for their weight rating. The screws that come with this mount seem huge, but do you really want to trust your expensive flat screen to something wimpy? I hung a Sharp 60" AQUOS from this mount with absolutely no trouble and have had no difficulty moving the screen and having it stay where I put it. The only drawback is the tilt needs two people to operate efficiently. Since I rarely change that once it's set, this isn't a problem.. A few of my friends have commented that it seems to mount the TV quite a ways from the wall, but when I pull it out and turn it, they shut up. This is the best articulated mount I've ever used.
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.
