I purchased this for mounting an Epson 3010e. Would not work. Clearly I misunderstood the specs, or they're wrong. The "spread" for the mounting feet was about one inch short. I ended up making my own brackets to extend the brackets as I was in a pinch.
PROS: Well made
CONS: Hard to understand what the projector will actually mount to. Assembly instructions are terrible.
I do not regret purchasing this item. However, the process was irritating in many ways. The metal is sloppily machined in places. Everything fits together once assisted by a gentle hammer tap but there are sharp burs on almost every piece. The manual is non-linear and the grammar therein is awful awful to the point of being difficult to follow.
There was also a bit of an issue with the projector I own having its mounting holes a few inches from the center of mass, which makes the mount want to tilt. Luckily, I was able to tighten the hardware enough that it would stop.
My last concern is that the adjustments are difficult to perform when this thing is hanging a foot from the ceiling and you cannot see the screws. Every adjustment introduces an unwanted adjustment along or around a different axis.
Anyway, after about 2 hours it's hanging securely and the projector is aligned. I would not NOT recommend it, but be prepared for some frustration.
PROS: Cheap as hell. Looks reasonable once installed. Cable management is useful.
CONS: Machining sloppy in places. Instructions are terrible. Adjustments are imprecise.
I ordered an epson 3020 prior to ordering this mount, and in order to make sure this mount will work with the 3020 I asked the 'experts' here at Monoprice via live chat if this would work with my 3020 he said it would. So, I ordered the mount with express shipping only to find out that it wouldn't fit my projector! I contacted Monoprice's customer support 3 days ago and I have yet to receive a reply I am truly disappointed. This ad is really vague, it doesn't tell you what projectors it works with I am going to try calling monoprice tomorrow and if that doesn't work I don't know what to do.
CONS: Everything! from the mount to customer service.
My apologies for the trouble you had with the mount working with your projector. I can get an RMA setup for you for a return, I would just need an order number to get the process started. Again my apologies for the inconvenience this has caused.

Overall a great product, only grip is that the intructions were horrible. Being that I am a very mechanical person I was able to with the help of 2 other guys (2 guys hold unit 1 guy works) the unit went up in about half an hour, but like I said bad instructions so it came down once to be rebuilt correctly. Looks awsome and very strong
For this'd unit to replace the home-made plumbing contraption that I rigged up. Didnt really expect anything made of metal at this price. Actually very little plastic most of the unit is metal and hasn't slipped at all since install two months ago.
PROS: Great mount at a great price. Pretty easy to put up
Very good mount. Not the best out there, but its very sturdy, not flimsy at all and fits most projectors. I used it on my Benq W1070 with no problem. Would love to see a Monoprice model with fine tuning to level the projector exactly. The instructions were written by someone with a rudimentary knowledge of the English language, but you can figure them out. Install took about 30 minutes.
PROS: Good price
CONS: Instructions are laughable
Not a con, but would like to see a some fine tuning screws added to the design
