    Clean, simple, and does the job well

    This TV wall mount doesn't mess around with fancy features, like tilting, angling, or movability. It is just a straight-forward wall mount for a flat-screen TV. It easily handles our 55" screen. A couple things that I like are the fact that you can easily slide the TV left or right to center it on the wall, even if the bracket is not installed in the exact center of the wall. That helps for mounting the bracket securely into wall studs. Also, when the TV is mounted, you can still tilt the bottom of the TV outward a few inches when you need more space to access cables. Not a lot of extra space, but was just enough for my needs. When you're done with cabling and let go of the bottom of the TV, it doesn't stay tilted, but will return to being flat against the wall. The straps on the unit have nothing to do with mounting and supporting the TV. They are there for when you want to dismount the TV from the wall bracket. Typically, the TV is securely "locked" onto the bracket. Pulling downward on the straps will allow you to release the TV from the bracket and take it down. One downside I encountered: various screws were provided to help mount my TV to the bracket hardware. The correct screw size was supplied in two different lengths -- one too short and one too long. I had to run to the hardware store to purchase a few screws to complete the job.

    Not appropriate for the TV I bought

    The Best Buy web site recommended this wall mount for the Samsung 40" UHD TV (UN40NU7100FXZA). The mount is of good construction, and mounting it on the wall is relatively easy -- provided you have the long list of tools required. However, the mount only attaches to the top two holes on the back of the TV. This Samsung TV has a curved back, meaning that the top holes are recessed at least 3/4" from the back. Although the mount comes with a variety of bolts, none of them are long enough to use IF you use the spacers that are provided. Longer replacements are not readily available. I managed to jury-rig a spacer which allowed the longest bolts to reach the set, but they did not seat to the bottom of the set's mounting well. The long bolt puts a lot of torque on the set's mounts, and overnight one side dropped about 1/8", indicating that the mount was probably going to break off the back of the TV. I wound up building a "shelf" to support the TV from the bottom. This is a small and relatively light (~25 lbs.) TV, and the mount is rated for up to 100 lbs. I would be hesitant to hang a set that heavy on it.

    Simple but Amazing product. Gets the job done!

    Bought this mount for my nephews 42" T.V. which he games on. I have never set up a mount up and had no clue on the tools needed. However, it is extremely easy. Everything was provided. All I had to go out of my way to borrow was a drill. Level, measuring tape and a stud finder (phone app for that) can all be acquired easily. It's a fixed mount which allows you to move your t.v. left or right for a few inches. Nothing fancy and perfect for what a T.V. mount should be. For the price that I got it for I'm definitely buying another one for a relative, even though we don't need it but it will look nice with the extra space we will make. I never post reviews on the things I buy but this I had to share will my fellow best buy shoppers.

    Wanted to hang up my 46" inch tv in my living room. Had originally purchased a $200+ mount that swivels and extends and other fancy stuff, but when I had opened the box and taken out the parts, it was overwhelming and hard to figure out by myself. And it was heavy. So, returned that to the store and purchased this one instead. It was more affordable and wasn't as complicated. The hardest part of the whole installation was finding a stud in the wall, and trying to keep it level without the aid of a leveler or someone else helping me. Otherwise, took maybe all of 40 minutes from start to finish for me to install it by myself. Comes with different bolts and washers based on what the back of your tv looks like. Again, it's relatively lightweight and didn't have a bunch of complicated parts to figure out. Would recommend.

    Not quite universal

    I liked the simple features and structure of this low price wall mount. The template was easy to use and the hardware nicely packaged. The product is very intuitively designed so that you don’t necessarily have to read the directions. They provided many different size bolts to attach the hanging brackets and wall spacer supports; however, the hardware provided did not accommodate for my two lower attachments as the holes were deeper than any bolt provided, so I had to make a run to my local hardware store to find 2 bolts to work. This was annoying but understandable as a company cannot be expected to accommodate every product on the market. For reference my tv is a 40” new model Samsung.

    Great t.v. wall mount at a reasonable price!

    I recently joined the 21st century and bought a Smart t.v. I got a great deal on an open box one (it was discounted nearly $100 off of the regular price!) but it didn't come with a stand. I knew that I wanted to buy a wall mount anyway because the stand that I have isn't high enough. But I really didn't want to have to pay a fortune for one. This one was by far the least expensive one. I couldn't tell you whether it was easy or difficult to install because I had Best Buy install it for me. But I love it! It's nothing fancy...it doesn't tilt or swivel. It just mounts my 48 inch t.v. to the wall (although it is on a sliding track so you can slide the t.v. over a few inches to the left or right without having to remount it). Now I can lay in bed and have my t.v. high enough to see it! Money well spent!

    Solid, basic Wall Mount

    I really like this wall mount. Given the space I was dedicating for the TV, I wasn't in need of a swivel head or anything of the sort. At first it seemed a little "too" basic to me, but it ended up being a solid mount. Hardware all seemed durable, and it's having no issues holding up a 65" tv. I will say it is VERY low profile, so hooking devices into the TV can be a little tricky, but I love the look of it, and how it just barely comes off the wall. For me, the aesthetic is worth a little inconveniences.. Which in all honesty, can be avoided with a little forward planning.

    I got this mount for a 65" OLED tv and it worked great. It had all the hardware I needed and was really quick to put on. Unlike other mounts I have purchased, this mount's wall plate is quite small and not very thick. There was easy to understand instructions, which most people shouldn't need. I have gotten other mounts for $15 that had thicker steel and included a level and upper and lower clamps from Best Buy that make this one seem like a ripoff but this was the cheapest mount that was in stock in the store so I got it. This mount has only upper clamps that screw on to the tv. The lower holes are just plastic spacers to hold it out from the wall. Decent mount, works great, cheaply made.

    I recently upgraded to a 55 inch 4K TV in the living room and wanted to mount my old 50 inch HD TV in our bedroom. I bought this hoping it would do the trick and I was not disappointed. I had an old Insignia TV which matched the brand of this mount. It worked perfectly. I would definitely recommend a second person helping though. Although it is a "fixed" mount, the TV will slide left to right which allows you to adjust the TV slightly for better viewing. Overall, I highly recommend this mount, especially if you already have an Insignia TV. It was easy to install, and works perfectly.

    Great Fixed Position Wall Mount

    Used this mount for a 55" Vizio flat screen which has a flat back and weighs around 30 lbs. Installed in a stud wall. Pretty easy to install. Properly secured this mount is very stout. Instructions say to drill a 7/32 pilot hole in the studs for the supplied lag bolts. I did that with the first one. The lag was hard to thread in. For the second lag I used a 1/4 pilot hole. Much easier to thread and just as secure. This always seems to the case when threading a lag in old studs. Sometimes these mounts won't line up on studs due to where one wants to center the tv on a wall. There are great drywall anchors made by SnapSkru that will easily handle the lighter flat screen tv's. Dec 2016.

    Great budget mount

    Not much that I can say that hasn't already been said. The mount provides a simple, clean option to mount your TV to the wall. I have used this mount for both a 43" and a 49" TV and they work well. It's supposed to be able to support a TV up to 70" but I'm not sure I would trust it to support a TV of that size and weight. Well, maybe if I mounted it to a brick or concrete wall but I would be leery if I were using this on drywall (which is what I have the other two TVs mounted on). Just remember that on drywall, a stud finder is your best friend....

    Lowest Profile

    This is the best wall mount I’ve purchased to date. Has the cleanest lowest profile I’ve seen. I’ve had many tilt turns and pivots wall mounts, but all of those are so bulky. This one keeps it close to the wall and is easy to install. The bracket has plenty of holes so map out your centerlines and studs. If not just get some nice toggle bolts.

    Bolts not long enough, only holds top not bottom

    Posted
    bestbuyer

    This TV mount (Insignia fixed TV wall mount) was recommended to me by the in-store Best Buy associate specifically to go with the Samsung 49" TV (model UN49MU8000FXZA) that I bought at that visit to Best Buy. But the wall mount was nothing but frustration! It does not come with bolts that are long enough for this model of TV (which needs M8 bolts about 40mm long or longer). Moreover, the mount only supports the TV by its top mounting points, not by the bottom, which would put too much torque on the top mounts of this TV (which uses long spacers protruding from the top mounts).

    There has been a constant trend of bestbuy employees insisting certain items will fit my needs only to find out that they actually don’t. I had a salesman state that this mount would work with a tv I bought and said he’s been selling the two as a pair for over a year and came to find out that the screws for the mount we’re not long enough. I asked the employee if we could check the compatibility in store and insisted that he’s been making these sales for over a year and has not heard of any issues or complaints.

    Insigni TV Wall Mount

    Bought this product for my LG 42 inch TV. When I went to Best Buy looking for a simple wall mount, I came across this item. I had suspicions about it at first cause I didn't know if it would hold the weight on the wall. Bought it, took it home and installed in. Took about 30 mins to install. Simple instructions along with proper wall measurements. Very sturdy and can even hold up to 70 inch TVs. I would recommend after a few days to double check the screws to make sure everything is nice and tight. Very good item for the price!! Would recommend to anyone.

    Basic, cost effective and easy to mount. I mounted my 40 inch tv onto drywall with this tv mount. However for drywall, I would recommend using drywall anchor kit (bought separately) if you cannot mount on the stud. Once you mount the tv onto this mount, it instantly lock in place. But gives you the flexibility to slide the tv sideways to adjust the position. It is also easy to un-mount using the strings provided.

    I just put the wall bar up level and across two wall studs. You don't have to be super precise in the side-to-side mounting because you can slide the TV left and right after you've clicked it in place. Be sure to measure and be mindful of the off-set vertically, though. I forgot, and my TV is slightly lower than I planned but, I lucked out because it lines up with the door nearby, so it looks like I did it on purpose!

    I thought this is going to be very difficult to mount on the wall but I was wrong it was very easy as long as you have the tools you need. It holds my TV perfectly fine and I have not had no issues. Donely thing I would recommend is that you have someone help you put the TV up for the fact that it’s very hard to carry the TV and hook it at the same time

    Basic TV wall mount, does the job

    I needed a wall mount kit for a 32" TV, so it didn't have to be anything all that involved, since the TV doesn't weigh much. This was the most basic wall mount Best Buy had and it does the job. It is very basic, just a rail you mount on the wall to hang the TV on. The only bad thing about it, if you don't have any studs in the section of wall you need to hang the TV on, the kit does not come with any anchors or other hardware to secure the rail. You would have to buy that separately.

    Works! Not a bad product and easy to install. Initially we had concerns about the release mechanism but after installing, it works fine. It is different from others we have used in the past. The product finds the line where it is "just sturdy enough" but could be a little heavier/thicker to get 5 stars. It is holding an LED tv so we are sure that it will be fine because the tv is not that heavy and it is a stationary mount. If we had a heavier tv, it would be more of a concern.
