I bought this mount to install a 42" LCD in our game room. Though I haven't completed the installation yet I don't anticipate any concerns or issues with getting it mounted. I believe it's rated for 65 lbs. It looks as though it could easilly handle that, plus some. The locking bar that slides into the mount to prevent the television from being push up and coming loose is a simple and unique design. Shipping speed was quicker than expected and packaging was done very nice. I would not hesitate to recommend monoprice to anyone interested in purchasing electronic items.
PROS: Hardware packaging is like none I've ever seen. Individual pouches with various hardware items to complete mount. Instructions are clear, concise and easy to understand. Quality and appearance of mount itself is much better than expected.
This wall mount is very easy to install and cheap. I laugh at people I see buying wall mounts over $100 at the store. This thing is perfect. I've got an 40" LED TV so it's lightweight and not that big, but the hardware seems strong enough to hold a heavier TV as well. I have ZERO complaints.
If you purchase this mount, you're getting exactly what you pay for. You're buying a low profile mount so be prepared to have zero space behind the TV for cords if you don't have the hole in the wall to run your wires. My TV has an HDMI port on the side so I ended up getting a splitter and just using that. That may be something to think about before purchasing, but other than that, I'd recommend to everyone.
PROS: Very low profile, easy to mount, light-weight, CHEAP PRICE, quality
This is a great wall mount at a very reasonable price. Looks great and projects minimally from wall. If you have rear connections on the tv, you'll have to connect the wires before mounting. When hung on just the top rail, I was barely able to reach behind to plug it in. All in all, worked out perfect for me.
PROS: Price, profile, quality, hardware, ease of installation
CONS: instructions, wiring in place, shipping cost
Great wall mount for the price. Very low profile. No special bells or whistles but fit the bill for what we needed. One great feature on this mount is that it has a locking bar so the tv doesn't slide once it is mounted.
Almost perfect bracket however there were 2 problems (-1 star for first, -3 star for second).
Issue 1: As mentioned before manual talked about concrete anchors in studs. No big deal. I hope no one tried this.
Issues 2: if the mounting screws are not absolutely 100% centered, the washers will block the security rail. This is a big problem. I didn't want to remove the screws entirely from the wall so I took a metal saw blade and shaved a flat in the washer. It took me about 3 hours. You can almost see the problem if you look at the large picture. Only needs about 2mm additional clearance. Big design flaw, needs fixing.
PROS: cheap, almost easy to install, simple, easy to hang tv
Have a Samsung 52" LCD, model LN52A55. This mount was rated up to 52", however, does not fit this older model (wall mount not wide enough). Received the shipment and was extremely pleased w/the quality. Unreal for $15 (well done Monoprice). Avoid my mistake of not taking measurements. Measure the width between your flat-screen's bracket bolts on the rear. Make sure the mount you purchase is wide enough to accommodate. I am going to purchase another mount from Monoprice that fits a larger screen (up to 60"). I reviewed specs and found it to be 33" wide on the wall plate, which will work great. Keeping the original mount shipped and will use it on one of my 32" bedroom sets.
