I decided to take a chance on this t.v. mount because of all the positive reviews on Overstock.com. First of all, the t.v. mount was here in a week and came with all of the parts needed to install. The good thing about the mount is that not only can it be pulled more than a foot away from the wall, but also can be tilted to get it exactly where you want it. The only down side I see is because the t.v. is heavy, when the mount is extended from the wall, it leans to one side. The t.v. I mounted was a standard 32". I don't know if this is normal or has happened to other people.
