If you're looking for something that will span three studs, this will do it, but be aware that the hole placement in the back plate means you'll only be anchoring to two of them, regardless of how you position it. In practice, that turns out to be just fine I'm a big guy, and I can hang from the mounted wall plate with no problems. :)
I was worried that the tilt mechanism was going to be difficult to adjust once the TV was on the wall, but it turns out those fears were unfounded adjustment has been very simple, even with a 65" TV in front.
I would have liked a black option, but it hides behind a TV it's hard to get worked up about that.
PROS: Fantastic price Easy tilt adjustment Spans three studs
CONS: Can only anchor to two studs Only comes in silver
Truly sorry to hear the dimensions for PID 3004 were not listed on the product page. If I may ask, can you send me pictures of the bracket next to measuring tape so we can look into this issue further? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org . Or, if quicker communication is needed, we also offer tech support via live chat instead. Unfortunately, we do not offer technical support by telephone at this time. Due to the high volume of technical inquiries we get, communication by phone cannot effectively be supported. My apologies again for any inconvenience and thank you in advance!
