CONS: The mount was pictures as having a removable face that attaches to the back of the tv. When the mount arrived the mount is all one piece. Effectively the tv must be attached to the mount then with either an inhuman effort or a partner the tv must be attached to the wall. It is quite difficult to wield a forty pound tv while wielding a two foot fifteen pound mount all while trying to screw it into the wall even with my wife helping. If the product had come with a detachable face as shown online mounting would have been manageable. I have decided to not return the product due to shipping costs being practically more than what I paid for the mount. I might try to mount something lighter with the mount in the future. Bottom line after a run around of purchasing two mounts (the one from bjs wholesale broke! ) this mount convinced me not to mount the tv. We are much happier with our new tv stand and the family room Configuration it lends itself to. The thirty foot hdmi cables I also bought are as pictured online.
Used this to mount a 55" LCD TV on particle board with the 400x400 VESA mount. As others have mentioned the mounting hardware that comes with the unit is for a walll/masonry mount, so I just used my own screws.
PROS: - Well built and sturdy. Easily handles the weight of modern 55" LCD - VESA holes worked without issue - Better than a fixed mount because you can pull out and get easy access to rear panel
CONS: - If mounting on something other than a wall/masonry you will probably want your own mounting screws (6)
Nice mount, easy to install, cheap hardware, buy better hardware and don't go any bigger than a 42 inch tv.
Tech support was very helpful.
PROS: Nice mount easy to install! Very easy to manipulate for viewing with tilt.
CONS: Really cheap screws to use in single stud use. The ones supplied are terribly cheap. Went to hardware and purchased much better lag bolts, much more robust. Spent about $1.50 Instructions don't mention single stud mount, tech support was very helpful! Instructions need updated. A 42 inch tv seems to be mounts limit.
Very good design, sturdy build. The instructions could be better, missing the way to tighten the tilt also the hinges. In the manual is a clip for the cables, not in the package. All the above is not a big deal, still deserves the 5 stars. GV
I was hopeful regarding the quality and weather or not this would hold my TV. My 48' Samsung TV mount was the 400x400 mount pattern. Worked flawlessly and they sent different size crews for nearly any arrangement. We mounted right to the wall stud, so it was a breeze. Good quality and exceeded my expectations.
This was my very first time ordering from Monoprice and I have to say that I was very pleased with everything. My product arrived quickly, no damage and the whole thing was cost effective. After having had a great experience with monoprice prices and product, I ended up ordering the following week for more products. I plan to purchase my Christmas presents for friends and family from monoprice. Great deals! Great Products!
PROS: Convenient, cost effective and delivery time is quick.
Used this in our living room and with the angles we have it is kind of hard for a fixed wall mount to get a viewing angle that would be ideal so we went with this full-motion one and was able to get the right angle for the room very easily. Setup was a breeze.
PROS: Quick and easy setup. Worked with no issues at all.
CONS: If your going to wall mount this to drywall and studs you will want to get stronger lag bolts as the ones included are meant for using the sleeve into brick so they are very soft to just barely cut into the plastic sleeve. That is an easy 5 dollars to get at a local hardware store.
