    Nice wall mount!

    We have been looking for quite sometime for a wall mount to do what we wanted for our Samsung 55" TV, which was to extend out and turn and tilt, but just too many options. Bought this bc it was onsale, but personally thought it was still expensive! All screws and parts were there and only needed a few simple tools. There was a cheap plastic piece you have to pull off, install TV, then snap back into place to cover part of the exposed mount but one of the pieces had one of the grommets break, therefore could not snap back into place. Surely didn't approve of such CHEAP plastic for such a purchase over $250, but is located behind the TV on the wall and will only see it if you go around to see it. Taking the base off our Samsung TV took the longest time since they truly made the MOST difficult way to install a TV base, as well as trying to find studs behind the sheetrock that was supposed to be a minimum of 16" apart close to centered above fireplace mantle. Paper template to use for wall placement worked great, installing the main piece to the studs went fine after drilling recommended pilot holes but when it came time to lift the TV to attach it to the extending arm, THAT was NOT easy!!! It has a small metal plate the size of your hand to slide in from the top that should have been funnel shaped to lock in but was not! Mount arm kept moving, but after multiple attempts on different ladders with my teen on the other side and wife in the middle to lift, we FINALLY got the TV locked in! Afterwards, looks like a professional install and couldn't be MORE proud we installed it ourselves and looks amazing. Weight of TV and wall mount arm does seem heavy, but this said it could hold upto a 90" TV, so just put faith in the stud bolts and so far, looks very solid! We do recommend this one, but still believe there are many others that are prob about $75-$100 less than what we paid, and onsale:).

    The mount is very solid and probably weighs more than most LED TVs. It definately weighs more than my 55" OLED. In terms of configurations, it allows your TV to tilt a bit both left and right so you can level it, allows your TV to pull about 2ft away from the wall so you can pan it to either side, tilt it up/down and turn it left/right. Pulled away from the wall, panned to one side and turned, you could mount some tvs in the corner of the room and would have clearance. You would have to pay attention to tv dimensions and mount capabilities to be sure... This mount allows full control of your viewing angle. For cable management, you can remove the covers on the mounts to route cables through the mount to the back of your set so you keep them hidden and neat and clean. The way your set attaches to this allows easy attach and removal if needed and provides feedback when the set is attached to the base fully and securely. This got only 4 stars for the following reason... In-wall rated cables are a bit thicker than normal ones. The channels to route the cables through the mount are not that deep and taper down on both ends. My setup uses 3 HDMI, 1 power cable, 1 ethernet cable, 1 optical cable. The 3 HDMI cables could not fit together in one of the channels, let alone those with the optical and ethernet. Therefore i had to get creative to route cables through channels in the mount and some had to come out opposite where the inputs are on the back of the TV so they still are visible a little bit. Had the channels been a bit deeper everything would have been fine. If you only need to route 1 HDMI to your TV there is plenty of room in the channels... i just couldn't due to the limitations of my AV receiver. Overall this is a beast of a mount and if you want full control of your viewing, this is the the mount for you, it just comes at a premium price. It is not without its flaws but depending on your setup it may not even be an issue.

    Professional looking wall mount, has challenges

    I bought this wall mount after my dad purchased the same item. We both had the same experience, so this is like two reviews in one! First, this is possibly the nicest wall mount I've seen, and for the price you would hope so. It holds both our 65 and 75 inch TV's with ease. The rotating mount makes it easier for connecting and disconnecting wires, which was the primary reason for buying this. The full motion does work very well. Installation was "standard" difficulty, if you have a basic understanding of tools and how to find studs in the wall you will be fine. A couple of warnings to be aware of that made me give this a 4 star review: 1. There are plastic covers that go on the arms of the mount that are used to hide your wiring, the clips on these covers are terrible, they barely stay clipped when there are no wires in the arms, when you have 3 or 4 wires running through them they push out on the covers and they fall off. We ended up just putting a tie wrap around the entire arm to hold them on. Was a frustrating experience trying to get them to stay on as designed. 2. You will need LOOONG wires to zig-zag through the mount. It is nice that the wires are hidden, but be aware that about 3 ft of wire will be lost in the mount. Additionally, the wire on my television was not long enough to make the zig zag, so I had to just expose it to make a direct shot to the outlet. My dad did not have this issue with his television.

    incredible TV arm

    I bought a 70" TV without really understanding how massive this thing was. My wife was, uhhh, quite unhappy with the surprise purchase. She loves the TV but hated how much space it was "taking" when it down on a small TV table we owned. Instead of returning the TV my solution was to buy this arm. I figured that I'd bolt it to the wall and it seem to take up less room. That or my the friction involved in taking it down would encourage my wife to let me keep my new huge TV. For those curious in how this story ended: she let me keep the TV. :) Onto a more serious review: This TV stand is solid. And I mean absolute UNIT solid. The arm is super, super heavy, made completely of metal. The provided screws need to bolt directly into the MIDDLE of studs, and are large / thick themselves. While my TV is relatively light, especially compared to the old, fat 2007 TV I had, the arm barely breaks a sweat. Once in place the TV does not wiggle or jiggle, but stays solidly where I put it. The only bad things here is actually a good thing: it's going to be a total pain in the rear to take off the wall. And that speaks to how high-quality and heavy-duty this thing is. As for cost: it is indeed pricey. I couldn't believe I was spending so much on a TV arm. But it was worth ever penny IMHO, and could probably hold a 90" TV without a second thought. Totally worth it!

    Robust, Reliable, Easy to install, Very Heavy

    I installed this for Sony X900E 75" panel. Wall mount on drywall, at top mount-hole at height of 78". Find the stubs, drill pilot holes, secure the wall mount, and attach the mount arm. It took me about 2 hours to do those. Hangs 75" TV no problem, and very easy to adjust. Highly recommended. I did have some problems while secure the arm piece and find the suitable height: (a) Sanus has a web site to find the mount hole height. It is very useful. However, one of the options seems not work correctly. When it asks if the TV attachment is center mount or non-center, I select as non-center because the mount to this Sony 75" TV is close to bottom, not center. The recommended measurement is way to low, so my first drill holes are quite off. Then, I did it myself, and my measurement is pretty the same as Sanus's "center" mounted numbers. So, BE SURE YOU CONFIRM THE NUMBERS BEFORE YOU DRILL IF YOU THINK YOURS IS NOT CENTER MOUNT. (b) The TV is secured to TV arm pretty well. However, the TV arm allows TV to rotate a bit (I guess that is for users to adjust level?). It does not bother me a lot, however, when I adjust the TV, I need to adjust the rotation a bit every time. (c) There are two plastic covers to hide wall mount screws. These two plastic pieces are very hard to detach, if you do not detach it carefully, the "tiny lock" mechanism will break easily. I need to quick glue those small pieces because I broke two of them. Be sure you bend these plastic covers a bit to detach them.

    Strong sturdy mount

    This is a really good mount. It was installed by Best Buy's Geek Squad mounting service which I highly recommend as well. I got the service for free from a special when I bought my TV but if I ever needed to mount another TV, I would even pay for the service because it's worth it! I got to sit back and relax while he did all of the work and heavy lifting. It was also installed perfectly and fast since he said he does installations all the time. The mount easily moves around in all motions as advertised just like the demo unit in the store. However, when compared to the demo unit which didn't have a huge TV on it, it will be slightly stiffer once the TV is mounted, but it is really not that noticable. I choose this one over the Rocketfish because I heard from a few people that the Sanus was better and also this one was on sale for only about 50 dollars more than the Rocketfish equivalent. But if you are on a tight budget, the Rocketfish will probably be just as good. Anyway, I am super happy with my purchase and highly recommend this mount. Since your reading this then you are probably in the market for a mount and your TV/living room will look much better when mounted! Don't think about it anymore, just get it!

    The box is pretty heavy , There are 3 sections in the box , One for the TV , One for the wall and One is the actual Swivel which is the heaviest part . instructions are relatively easy and screws are packaged and numbered as steps of instructions would indicate . I would say you would need or have some understanding of walls and anchoring to walls . If not You will still do fine . It comes with a template to mark your wall after you locate the studs . I am pretty experienced and it took me about 2 hrs to mark and mount to the wall having the necessary tools . Most of my time was spent making sure my height and location met my expectations . I mounted a 65' Samsung UN65KS9000FXZA and I would recommend having assistance to lift the tv to make the final connection to the wall bracket . I have a one bedroom co op so now I can turn the tv when I am at the other side of the apt at my desk . Its tilt and extension is more than what you will need for a 65' TV

    Best wall mount you can buy

    I absolutely believe this is the strongest and most stable wall mount available. Installed on my 50" Samsung nu8000 was as straight forward as any other wall mount I've installed. this mount is very heavy. I believe the shipped weight was 26 lbs. my TV is 29 lbs to give you an idea of how heavy this beast is. I think I'd be more worried about the wall studs failing than anything on the mount ever giving up! definitely make sure you have found the center of the studs with this guy (of course..but just saying) Also the fact that this will extend 28" from the wall and still feel solid is awesome! The ONLY reason I will not rate this thing 5 stars is because of the ridiculously cheap plastic trim that covers the lag bolt holes on the wall bracket. Seriously Sanus why would you engineer such a bad-A product and skimp out on the beauty trim. you would have been better off saving the money on manufacturing and just not included them, They'll just break when you remove them out of the box anyways. Price is high. but if you have the coin and want something that will be a quality solid piece. Buy once cry once I say.

    This is my second Sanus mount purchase. I have a full range mount for corner tv in bedroom and am impressed with its strength and function. I needed another mount for different mounting application for my Mom's house and went with another Sanus. Installation went well. Both strong and sturdy (fastened to studs) I can pull tv 2 ft. (appx) from wall making access to back of tv a breeze. I used their online guide that allows you to input tv make, model number and desired mounting height and it gives you mounting screw elevations as well as bottom, top of tv height! This takes guess work out of equation... even though you can make some adjustment via bracket on tv back. Also, Once mounted you can fine tune level adjustment. Again I am happy with this purchase. it is expensive but I know I won't need to bother with it again with next tv upgrade as it is just a matter of lifting tv off of mount and removing tv bracket (4 screws) from old and putting on new tv then rehang on mount!

    This mount was so easy to install. Its holding up my 65 inch samsung QLED TV and it extends out from the wall at any angle with no problem and it also is holding a samsung soundbar under the TV. I am confident that its holding up my electronics with no problem . I love the fact that it tilts and turns at any angle and the extension of 30 inches is a must for big Tv's if you wanna turn it 90 degrees. It was a $300 purchase which I thought was a little over priced....... but after installing and seeing what it can do..... I am thoroughly satisfied with the wall mount and its price. I am giving this product 5 stars because it has exceeded my expectations.

    In my quest to purchase a new tv I knew I wanted to mount it on the wall in my living room. This bracket was one of the most expensive I looked at but it was also the best constructed and had the most projection ability from from the wall at 28". I needed to be able to pull the 55" tv in the living room out and turn it far enough to be able to view it from the dining room and with this bracket I can easily do that. It is very stable even tho it is extended out so far from the wall. It has given me the ability to get rid of the cable box and small tv I had in the dining area.

    So i spent a lot of time before pulling the trigger on this one. I went around several big name stores and small shops looking at mounts and playing around with the floor models. This mount, by far, impressed me the most out of everything i looked at. The mount is ridiculously easy to move and smooth in opperation. I currently have a Sony 49" 4k TV on the mount which sits above my desk with computer rig, and i have no concern of the mount failing. It comes with an array of screws, bolts, spacers, etc for a variety of monitor fitment. It even has a template to use for mock up and drilling. My ONLY "complaint" would be the cost. It is expensive compared to most mounts currently available (many of which, claim to support similar weight and monitor size.). Again, this mount impressed me the most and by far seemed to be the most sturdy. I would ALMOST claim the price is justified by the quality of the mount. To summarize, I am 99.9% happy with my purchase...the other 0.1% only comes from my wallet complaining.

    My usage was for a 75" Sony 4K TV to be mounted on a finished basement wall (Man Cave). Came with everything required, except as noted: More mounting hardware (regarding bolts) was required because I could not use the 4 longer lag bolts as there wasn't enough depth of wall without going into foundation. So I had to purchase and install 8 shorter bolts to ensure proper mounting due to TV/TV Mount weight. Those should be included as an option for those who run into the same problem I did. Mount works well, but if you plan on pulling out and turning, etc. also plan on having to re-adjust the TV a little to get it looking straight as the weight of the TV and the moving of it get the R/L tilt and up/down tilt off on return to wall. No big deal, and I guess its just the price you have to pay for the mobility you get. Overall seemed the best quality mount offered and I bought it on sale within $50 of the cheaper mount so I would say it was a deal.

    I bought a 77" LG OLED TV for my man cave. Originally, this mount was recommended by the Best Buy Magnolia associate. When the Best Buy Geek Squad installers installed the mount and TV, they notified me that the mount would stick out approximately 2" lower than the TV. This would negate the work I had put into hiding cables and cords to have a clean look. Having the mount visible inches below the TV was not acceptable so, I had to go the nearest Best Buy store while the installers waited at my house and pick up a tilt, but not full motion, model. To their credit, the Best Buy design team ate the cost of the new mount and I was able to return the old one for a full refund. The mount looks good but, before you buy it, ensure that it does not stick out from the TV. Since I could not use it, I cannot recommend it, at least not if you are trying to mount a TV like mine.

      Hello BbGRRM,
      Thank you for your feedback. I'm happy to hear that the BestBuy team was able to get the mount you needed in this situation but apologize for the hassle. Next time I'd encourage you to use the trusty mountfinder tool here to ensure compatibility. This takes into account issues of the mount being covered fully by the TV. http://mf1.bestbuy.selectionassistant.com/

    My 3 start rating is not due to the quality of the mount, it's due to the price. This mount is made of quality materials and is heavy duty. Smaller installers may require help when installing the mount due to weight. The instructions are easy to follow for even a novice. The cable management rails have plenty of room for several cables. All hardware required for mounting is included. Mounted a 75" screen and has no problems holding even at full extension. The problem with mount is the price. The mount should be motorized and install itself for this price. Quality is there, value is not. If money is no object, this is the mount for you. However there are several other quality mounts out there for half the price or less.

    We purchased a new Samsung 75' TV and had to switch wall mounts. Our old TV was a 65' and had a decent mount but we wanted better movement. I looked around and found that there are a ton online from super cheap to c'mon really? Because we needed the TV to be on an angle to show towards our couches this seemed to be the best. I read a few reviews and people had mentioned this was not only easy to install but it was at a good price. I have installed a few of these over the years but this bracket was by far the easiest. The side to side movement is smooth, easy and sturdy. IT had little covers for the bolts on the bracket which is nice even though no one really goes behind the TV but me. I know that there are mounts that can run $70 -$100 but they are also very heavy and I don't think they move as freely. IF you have spent a good amount on a TV why go cheap on what holds it up. I would absolutely recommend this mount.

    This tv mount might seem a bit pricey, but wait until you install it. It was easy, and the directions were well written. We had some bigger demands for a tv mount this time around. We needed something that could do it all... hug the wall, tilt in and all directions, level itself, and full extend and hold a heavy tv, wire management system, etc. This was the best. It pulls about 28" away from the wall (I don't remember exactly) allowing for significantly more range for tv use in the same room. It is installed in an odd shaped bedroom. We needed it to be able to fully extend and swivel about 45 degrees in both left and right directions, in addition to viewing it from straight on... This was the only one on the market that I could find that did it all. It also some very handy features that allow you to remove the tv from the mount EASILY and securely and remount it just as easy. Worth the extra money.

    ......and after Geek Squad installed our new TV on it and she saw it could tilt toward the kitchen as she cooked, I could point it toward the Lazy-Boy in the corner, and my son could virtually point the TV 90 degrees down so he could game from the floor, she was speechless. With all of the accessories I bought for my TV this was the one I almost did not buy and this one put the icing on the cake. What an amazing wall mount. I bought a 55 inch TV instead of a 60 inch TV so I could buy all the extra bells and whistles, 5.1, tv mount, sound bar mount, Geek Squad installation, and my most pleasant surprise was this mount can pull two feet straight from the wall. Effectively making my 55 inch look like a 65 inch!. This is especially a fantastic feature when we are having "movie night" and the room is dark. Have your mount do more than hold your TV. It IS worth the bit extra you pay!

    I was able to get a good deal on this item. Given the high cost, I would probably recommend a cheaper option. That being said, I was mounting a $2,000 TV, so I wanted to make sure I was getting a quality product. This definitely gets the job done. There are a lot of ways you can adjust the TV before and after mounting. I had to hang the mount off center to where I wanted the TV, so it was nice that I could hang the TV all the way on the left side of the mount (i.e. you don't have to hang the TV exactly center to where the mount is...you have a little leeway in either direction). I also really liked that I was able to adjust my TV clockwise/counterclockwise after mounting. One problem I had was that due to the shape of the back of my TV, I had to go buy additional screws that were long enough to attach the TV to the mount.

    Built tuff, installed in 10-15 minutes, and safety secures my 65'' Samsung 8500 series curve TV. Gives you the luxury to rotate your TV in any direction, including pulling away far enough to angle the TV almost 45 degrees. Removes all limitations and adds more luxury for viewing a better angle, simply move the TV to the best angle you want with ease and you will never have to worry about moving to another seat to see with a better angle. Brings your TV to you! Then simply push the TV back to your decrative resting place when you don't need it. Best of both worlds!!! You won't regret adding this addition, seriously well worth it. I went back and purchased one for each room. Like living easy, this will truly simplify your setup for you whenever you like!
