I knew from a chat session that this was a back-to-back flat panel tv mount and not a projector mount as described and that was what I was looking for so I gambled for the $26 and I hit the jackpot. You could beat back an elephant with this thing. The only gripe I have is the set screws sticking out of the sleeve connector pipe. I may get a custom length pipe with threads on both ends to make a cleaner install but the bracket itself is top notch for $100 much less under $30.
We used the three mounts on an eleven foot ceiling. Using all three poles as provided was too long so we had to modify by cutting down one pole and drilling new holes. Once we modified the first mount, the others were easy to modify and install. At the end of the day, these mounts are very sturdy, great looking and you will not find a better value anywhere!
PROS: Well built, great looking and an exceptional value.
CONS: Down rod poles are too long and do not offer enough adjustments.
This mount is solid metal - it's as heavy as a 37" LCD I bought it for! Specs say it's -5 to 15 degrees, but it goes to about 30 - a big plus. It's quite long, so I had to ditch the top tube and figure out how to hang it by the bottom tube. Overall, awesome deal!
PROS: * Comes with every hole and screw you can imagine. * Unbreakable!
CONS: * Too long for less than 15' ceilings. * I'd pay $5 extra for a better finish.
I was surprised at how heavy the bracket was considering I bought it for 29.99. It worked well and is holding up a 32" Sony LCD in my parents kitchen. In the future I am going to look for something like it for my 42" Toshiba.
