Our knowledgeable Technical Support staff would be more than happy to assist. Thank you
This all comes down to whether the arms attach to the top or the bottom of the Television which would be something you would be able to visually verify. Honestly for a display as big as 82 inches i would recommend a product more like PID 3900.
I hope this helps.
This mount supports all commonly used VESA patterns in the range of 100x100 to 800x400, including 400x200.
With all that you get, there are a few cons with this kit. First, the bubble level. The bubble is much smaller than the "level" marks. In a situation like mounting a TV where being level is crucial, I would highly recommend having a quality 24" or 36" level on hand. The level on the mounting plate will get you close, but not close enough for the discerning eye.
Second, the TV sits close to the wall, so adjusting the angle is near impossible. An installer needs small hands to get back there if the TV is anywhere near vertical. One solution to this issue is to print degree marks on the part of the mount that angles. This way, you can set it (and tighten it) to a degree of tilt before hanging it.
Third, you will need to start the locking screws before you hang the TV. The locking screws screw up from the bottom of the mounting plate to lock the TV once it is hung. It keeps the TV from falling if someone accidentally bumps it. It's very difficult to screw in/tighten the mounting screws once you hang the TV. It's best to start the screws with the TV off of the mount. That way, when you hang it, all you have to do is tighten (long-ish screwdriver needed) you don't have to search for the hole and start the screw.
Fourth, this holds the TV close to the wall. Pay close attention to the video connections necessary on the back of the TV. You will most likely need "port savers" or some kind of adapter that rotates the input 90 degrees. Make as many connections as you can before you hang the TV, or use port savers to extend the ports. If I needed to add another input behind the TV, I would have to take the whole thing down. I used port savers. Make sure you put some in for future connections so you don't have to pull the TV down later.
Even with the cons, I highly recommend this mount. I gave it an 8 out of 10 rating for the bubble level and poor tilting design.
Here are the key steps to make your mounting easy:
1. Remove the base stand from the TV (if you have one installed). This was the hardest part b/c two of the four bolts did not come out of the TV. Panasonic customer support didn't help. WD-40 didn't help. What I had to do was go to O'Reilly automotive and get an impact screwdriver. You wack it with a mallet and it slowly loosens the bolt without stripping it.
2. Get angle brackets for all your connections. HDMI, optical, cable antennae, etc. Get them at Monoprice.com of course to save time and money.
3. Find the studs. I used an electronic studfinder going in both directions. Then I tapped in a small nail to be certain it was a stud. Spend plenty of time making sure.
4. Mark the holes. Use a laser level to get them aligned.
5. Drill the top 2 holes. Start with a skinny bit and work your way up to the recommended size. They use mm but my set was English so had to convert them. Make sure to drill ALL THE WAY IN. If you don't drill all the way in you will break the bolt. You have to drill as deep as you can to remove the wood in the stud. The lag bolts cannot do that part.
6. Put the bracket to the wall. Check again for level using a standard level. Ignore the one built into the bracket which is not accurate. Mark the bottom two holes.
7. Drill bottom two holes like top two holes.
8. Mount bracket with socket wrench. If the bolts won't go in DONT FORCE THEM. Instead drill the hole deeper.
9. Connect all the wires to the TV.
10. Hang the TV on the wall with someone else's help. Don't try it by yourself. It's not that heavy so any two people can do it. Then you just tighten the bottom two screws and adjust the tilt.
Took me two days two get the bolts out of the stand. One hour to do the rest.
I check the mount every so often just to make sure it isn't coming out. It's not. LOL
PROS: Very slim,
All spacers, bolts, screws, etc. included
CONS: Built-in level was off a mm or two
Speaking of connections, don't forget to look at right-angle connectors for your cables when buying a bracket this slim. Monoprice sells these connectors for a 1/10th of the cost of electronics stores, but be sure to include them in your shipping cost for the mount!
PROS: Price is amazing, installation was easy, keeps the TV far enough away from the wall to make mounting easy, but close enough to make it look great.
PROS: Heavy guage steel
More than adequate amount of mounting hardware
CONS: Flexes somewhat if there isn't a screw in the vicinity of the mounting arm
Built in level is difficult to use accurately
PROS: Easy to install, simple design. Monoprice is awesome. We buy all our cables, connectors, etc., from Monoprice.
The bubble level is a nice touch, but after reading some reviews that it might be slightly off, I measured with a laser level and also found it is a little off. No big deal though.
Because it's slim, the knobs to tighten down the tilting mechanism are a bit hard to reach. It may have been possible to tighten with just my hand, but rather than struggle with that, I made a simple tool for it. I found a long piece of scrap PVC pipe in my garage, it's about 3/4" or 1" in diameter, and cut a notch in the end with a hack saw just big enough to fit over the knob. It didn't take but a few minutes to make, and I was able to use my makeshift tool to very easily tighten the tilting mechanism.
At first I worried about the bolts holding in my 100yr old brick until I messed one up and tried to remove the plastic, one of these things alone could support my entire 175lb weight. I used 5 so I am confident nothing short of a disaster would remove it.
PROS: sturdy, well designed, perfect amount of angle, this thing is as close to the wall as possible
