I hung a 22 pound LED on the wall with this unit. No issues with the installation, however the TV can bounce quite a bit. This may be a tradeoff with the effort necessary to move to another viewing position, but it make me think this may not be as sturdy as I hoped.
PROS: easy to install plenty of installation hardware inexpensive
I like my wall mount bracket as it fulfilled my needs, and look forward to my next purchase from the company.
PROS: There are many thing to like about this wall mount bracket, it's light yet sturdy, hides nice behind the TV, extends and swivels to suit any location (this one is in a confined area and can be pulled out for viewing) and it was easy to install. Very happy with my purchase
I was not sure about this item being only $22, but after receiving it quickly and installing it easily, I can definitely say it is perfect for a 16 lb tv. The tilt, pull, swivel features work very smoothly and can be tightened if it is a little loose, with the included tools, very important and consumer friendly, in case you do not have the correct sizes. The outer holes (4) are meant to go in wall studs via manual, but I was unable to do that for the wall it is on. The center holes (2) seem plenty strong when stud mounted. Could not be happier, thanks Monoprice!
I purchased this mount to place a Samsung 24" TV also purchased from Monoprice. It will go on out covered patio for family gatherings. I wanted this 'bridging' type since I will be anchoring it to the brick veneer of the house. This larger mounting plate allows me extra flexibility when driving the anchor screws into the brick mortar. It will also accommodate a larger TV that may eventually works its way to the covered deck if it's economical to fix. But for for now it suits both intentions.
I purchased this mount for a 32 inch LCD TV and attached it to metal studs in my wall using a separate set of the Sanus SSMK1 mounting adapter. The mount and mount adapter worked perfectly together and the mount was easy to install while requiring no assembly. Once the mount was attached to the wall and the TV attached to the mount I just tightened everything down and now I can adjust the TV viewing angle afterward without stability problems.
The mount weighed about as much as the TV but it is was not overkill and is definitely strong and stable. I was concerned about another reviewer who had an issue with the TV falling off the mount during install but I did not have a problem. During the install I just screwed the mount into the wall and then the TV into the mount and did not take the mount apart. There are some stability screws you cannot see from the product image that are just on the other side of where you screw the TV in that allow you to tilt up/down. It appears like you can unscrew them and disconnect this part of the mount but I just tightened them to make sure it was stable and locked.
I would buy this again if I installed another TV.
PROS: Adjustable Easy install Affordable Plenty of extra nuts and bolts for install
This wall mount bracket solved all our TV Mounting problems because it covers two standard wall studs. We purchased two other brackets prior to this one and niether could be used because it did not reach the studs in the wall and you cannot hang a TV on drywall safely without attaching to two wall studs. This is an excellent product and we are very happy we chose it. We will order through Monoprice again.
PROS: Will reach two wall studs perfectly. Sturdy and well made Attractive Reasonably priced
Turns out this is precisely the sort of mount I had in mind for my unique needs. I had an extra flat screen that I wanted to mount behind my Wacom screen for when I was using it in tablet mode. This allows the bonus screen to easily tuck out of the way when not in use and swing forward when I want to use it as an image previewer.
PROS: Easy installation, sturdy and maneuverable.
CONS: Took me a few moments to figure out how to remove the body pieces to expose the mounting holes but that was mostly because I was worried about breaking something.
I tried 2 different 32" monitors, an LED & LCD. The chief complaint is that there is only 1 hex head screw to tighten the most key place, where the set connects with the mount. It uses a disc and the friction from the one hex screw to tighten the swivel capability. No matter how tight you make it, the set droops down, will not stay in position. It may work for a computer monitor or a 22" TV screen, but it cannot support a 32" monitor.
PROS: Thin, easy to install, easy to work with cables once monitor is mounted. Extension from the wall and then collapsing close to the wall is nice.
CONS: This model is not capable of supporting a 32" monitor.
