Perfect...Picked this mount after many hours searching for the perfect one for my New 27inch IMAC. Decided this would work just fine. Very heavy duty, mount weighs a considerable amount. Came with all hardware for mounting to a concrete block or brick. Had to purchase the correct hardware for wood stud and drywall. Note that the spacing is to large for stud. So one set of holes will be stud and the other dry wall. But it holds very well. Easy to install. Matches the IMAC aluminum look. Overall happy with the price and product. Will continue to purchase mounts and accessories from MONOPRICE. Good job.
Since there's no way to edit reviews, this is a followup to my original review on 6/30/10. The mount is still performing great with a larger monitor (27"). I did replace the tilt knob & bolt with a 1"x5/16" carriage bolt and wingnut with washer. I really didn't like the knob. It was difficult to turn without pliers and with such a short bolt I was always worried I'd loosen it one turn too many and the monitor would fall off. The longer bolt also makes it much easier for a single person to attach the monitor with the mounting plate to the swing arm.
This thing is make of thick steel tube, very robust. My 32" LED TV probably was about 15 pounds, so I only used the 3 bolt holes on one side and sank lag bolts into 2x4 studs. I have no doubt this thing will hold the TV. Great price on the bracket. Easy to understand instructions. Thanks Monoprice!
PROS: - If you need to hang a 60 pound TV this bracket can handle it
- Allows for a large swing area to see TV at many angles
- Followed same bolt pattern of previous old-school tube TV bracket I replaced
CONS: - Would have chosen bracket in black if available
This mount is solid... solid due to the huge construction of this product.
I suppose I should have read a bit more about this mount as I was totally shocked at how beefy this was. I have used other mounts, 1/4 of the size to mount 32" commercial lcd screens.
Assembly was pretty straightforward, but the instructions provided little assistance.
The tilting mechanism could be a little more friendly, but once you set your angle, you'll probably never adjust it, unless gravity takes over.
Without question, the lack of the ability to adjust the final level of the screen was noticed. I mounted the device to the wall with a level. Everything should have been level to my screen, but alas, the screen was crooked, so there is play in the bracket's hinges. I widened the mounting holes on the back to give me the angle I needed to have a visually level screen.
I have purchased two of these mounts and would not hesitate to buy another. It feels heavy duty, mounts easily, has easy to adjust tension on the arms and had all the parts I needed for mounting a flat panel TV. It has a wide range of positions and horizontal angles. Highly recommend.
I used this wall mount not for a TV but a small console with a monitor and keyboard. It gets used in a work environment to enter user and tracking data for jobs on a copy machine so it's being moved and typed on and pressed down on throughout the day. I was worried that using drywall anchors combined with the weight of the bracket plus the weight of the terminal mounted to it would be too much and it would pull out of the wall, get wobbly or the terminal would keep tilting and the bracket would have to be continuously re-tightened. However I haven't had any problems, it's been in a while now and the unit is still strong and solid. I'm pleased with the purchase.
PROS: Strong and solid
CONS: A bit heavy, but I guess that's what makes it solid.
Read the dimensions on everything to know what to expect. Incredibly sturdy at incredible price. I hope child labor is not involved to keep it at this price point. I think this is my 6th Monoprice monitor mount, although the first of this model and it does not disappoint.
PROS: This bad boy is built like a tank. Almost tempted to hang on it myself, but that is over the posted weight limit, but I almost think it wouldn't bat an eyelash. My paltry 24 inch monitor causes it no strain whatsoever.
