    Quality Wall Mount/Easy Installation

    Bought this mount for my daughter's 32" LED. It was probably an overkill for that small of a TV and it's light weight, but after researching other mounts in that class and price range, I decided to go with this one to be safe. The overall mount is fabricated of solid, thick and heavy weight metal, that felt like it was precision-milled to higher standard specs than many others I have researched and used before. It is also very efficiently designed. The TV back bracket is also thick, solid and comes with 2 multi-hole plates/straps for different hole spacing. The adjustable tilt & swivel half-globe is uniquely integrated with a sturdy adjustment and lock bolt mechanism that is easy to reach even with TV pushed against the wall. The wall bracket/arm, just like the other parts, is solid thick metal with tight clearances on all adjustable hinges. The wall bracket/arm mounting plate, which is also very heavy duty, but relatively small, enables you to attach the whole bracket/arm assembly with only two large 5" x 3/8" lag bolts to only one wall stud. Just make sure to use the correct size ratchet ranch to drive the bolts all the way into the stud until the heads are completely and firmly seated in the recessed slot. DO NOT USE CRESCENT RANCH. Since the bolt seats are recessed in the mounting plate base, crescent ranch will not allow you to completely tighten the bolts. Once correctly installed, you can be assured that your TV will stay put, and any desired tilt/swivel position adjustment will stay in place indefinitely and wont shift. Overall, the quality of this mount allowed a professional-looking solid installation that I can depend on and not worry about the TV crashing down if my daughter wants to adjust it later. Good stuff.

    Great mount for mid-sized smart TV

    This mount IS compatible right out of the box with a Samsung 32" UN32F5500 model TV. Easy to install, easy to hook up to the TV back. The bracket fit the 200x200 mounting pattern perfectly. I had read several reviews on this mount - all were overall good reviews, but quite a few were unhappy because they said the mount was not compatible with Samsung 32" TV's due to the correct M8 x 20mm bolts not being included. Other than that they were very happy with the mount once they bought the right size bolts locally. So I took a chance because I really wanted the clean look on the wall and full motion provided by this mount. When I got the mount out of the box I looked and sure enough, none of the bolts were the correct size. I was all ready to go to the hardware store to buy the correct bolts - BUT - for some reason I looked again and dug through all the little hardware packs and really looked. Lo and behold - the folks at Sanus must have been reading their reviews and learned a lesson. Because when I looked again I found tucked in the box a small packet marked "Additional Bracket Bolts - Use only If Needed" and sure enough, there were the 4 required M8 x 20mm bolts. Perfect. SO, just make sure you have your torpedo level and know where your stud is in the wall, and the thing really is easy as 1, 2, 3 to mount. Next the in-arm cable management. I'm a nut for clean, perfect wiring so it actually took me as long to run wires as it did to put the mount on the wall. The cable run space in the arms was tight, but I was able to route the power cable, HDMI cable, RCA video and L/R audio cables, and IR Extender cable ALL inside the cable channels. I do my own work and mods on my motorcycle including electrical, so I used some extra 1/2" black heat-resistant flex-conduit I had hanging around in the shop to bundle and cover exposed areas of the multiple cables and it came out looking really clean. The mount does allow full 180 degree swiveling on the wall and the up/down lean angle for the TV works nicely and holds position well, so I am able to get the perfect angle to view the screen from anywhere in the room. So bottom line, I do recommend this mount; just know where you want to put it, be sure you are centered on a stud and have your mount level when you mark the drill spots, and this thing is a very easy, basic install. Total time from opening the box to turning on the mounted TV couldn't have been an hour. Works great, looks great. Very happy with it.

    This is my second wall mount. I bought the identical one for my son's room in January to free up some dresser top space in his room. It was mounted near the corner and in a way that it lays flat to the wall with a slight down angle when he is in bed and then is able to swing away from the wall and angle towards his desk when he is there. It worked so well that I did the same in our room and bought the identical mount. I used a stud finder to locate a stud to attach to. It must be fastened to a stud or to a concrete block or other solid wall. Expansion anchors into sheet rock will not work because of the weight. The hardware is included for both mounting it to the wall as well as many different lengths and diameters of screws needed to mount the TV to the swing arm plate. You will have a lot of extra screws left over.... don't worry. This does require assembly but the directions were clear with good pictures to guide you. I looked at a lot of these before choosing this one and know I made the right choice. It is not the cheapest of its kind but in this case the little extra money was well spent for quality. A couple of closing remark. If you do not need the adjustability of a mounting solution then a flat wall mount that just tilts up and down may work for you. They usually cost less and are probably easier to mount to the wall. Beware that some cables, especially HDMI and RG-5 are not very flexible. Depending on how your cables plug into you TV it may be a little cramped in relation to the wall. If your cables attach vertically there is probably not a problem. If they attach horizontally out the back then there may be. A quick look before you get one will save you time and frustration. I like this one because my son will constantly be plugging things like game consoles and cameras in and out of the TV and all he has to do is swing it out, make the connections and swing it back. Hope this helps.

    I had issues

    I purchased this to mount my new Samsung 5500 series smart LED. The mounting hardware to go from the wall mount to the back of the TV wasn't compatible. The wall mount came with plenty of screws and options, but none would work just right. Attaching the wall mount to the back of the TV is about as simple as it gets, or at least should be! If you were to use the four screws that fit into the back of the TV ie correct thread you would have a gap between bracket and tv. Now I know the wall mount came with spacers to also use, These spacers when used with the appropriate screws would not work. I will provide a picture you can see how the screws are flush on the back of the TV now with no spacers. This took multiple trips to the hardware store, Also went back to speak to the sales staff only to be assumed an idiot. You will also see the limited range on the bracket which claims to support tv's 15/37. Mine being 32.

    Don't Cheap-Out!

    After reading reviews from others who had purchased much less expensive mounts that "looked" like this one, my wife and I were very leary of getting the right thing. We mounted a 26" flat screen w/built in DVD player on the wall in our kitchen with this model, and it worked out great. The plate that mounts to the back of the tv has a swivel that allows the set to be tipped up or down and/or rotated. We highly recommend that you get the angle you want, then torque this bad boy tightly! You won't be able to easily adjust it after it's tight, but it's difficult to lossen it and tighten it snuggly once it's up on the wall (especially if it's up high). If you don't re-tighten it well, the tv will slowly droop on the swivel! Otherwise, the thing is made from solid cast aluminum parts, all of the hardware for any type of flat screen tv is included, it bolts securely to a wall stud and the wire managment system works well to wrangle the power and coax neatly. You definately get what you pay for with these things. It's shameful to think that it costs about 30% of the price of the tv, but if you're looking to save money, save it on something else or you'll be sorry you didn't!

    Perfect, flexible full motion, high quality mount

    Posted

    The instructions were simple and very basic. Would have been nice for them to share tips on mounting as I worried too much about centering the TV into the defined shelf where I was installing it. Because it has full motion, you really only need to worry about the height. The arms are made of good quality steel and move smoothly and accurately. They include various extra hardware (screws and mounting plates) to accommodate most all LCDs etc. I bought it to mount an LCD in shelf in the kitchen. I almost bought a simple wall mount and I’m very glad I didn’t because of the flexibility to pull it out, tilt it etc. Very very flexible and it looks very professional. If you are debating on whether to mount your LCD on a full motion vs. The actual installation of the mount was very easy. The tough part was trying to find the center of the mounting space because most of the LCD mounting plates are not in the middle. I missed the middle of the space on the first mounting attempt, but was able to move it up one inch and fix in less than 5 minutes. I would definitely recommend this mount if you are mounting in a bookshelf type space or if you want to have the flexibility to pull your LCD outward and rotate it, buy this one.

    It's an okay TV mount

    This TV mount is okay, but nothing to really get excited about. If I were to purchase one again, I would probably go with a square or rectangular shaped mount instead of a stick mount like this that requires only two screws. This is because the rectangular mounts are more flexible to stud location horizontally than this product is. Also, I simply cannot get over how expensive these types of products are. There's literally no reason why any TV mounts should cost anything close to $150. While I would pay a touch extra (like $10 at most) for Sanus branded mount, since they make the experience so nice, there's no way I could reasonably pay $150-$200 for a freaking television mount. Pros: This mount appears to be well constructed. Also the packaging is simply well organized. Setup couldn't have been easier when it comes to the mount. Cons: Of course this mount should only be mounted into studs. You need to check and ensure that there are studs exactly where you want the mount to attach before dropping the cash on something like this. Also, this mount is difficult to prevent rotational cant when mounting, since the top of the mount isn't flat it's hard to use a level during mounting. Maybe I'm just an idiot, but I would not recommend this product to a friend simply because mounting this product level to non-ideal stud positioning is such a task.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    All-in-all a sturdy mount. I used it to wall mount a Samsung 26 inch LCD flat screen to a plaster wall. It comes with plenty of hardware and can be matched to most VESA size mounting surfaces on TVs. Measure and sketch it out so you end up with a mounting position you desire.. finding a stud in the wall is a must. It is rated at 60 pounds and my Samsung weighs 18 pounds. Cons: The instructions are nearly useless; but if you are intuitive you can figure it out. There is a knob that I have no idea what its purpose is. The M4 screws that came with it are 10mm long and too short -- I was only able to get about two threads intot he back of the set. Had to buy 4, M4 x 16mm screws to mount the plate to the back of the set. Pros: Fairly easy to mount. Seems very sturdy. wide range of motion that can be easily changed to accomodate your viewing preferences. Good value at the price point.
