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.
Were it not for the terrible instructions included I would rate this much higher. Tip - Before you start loosely assemble the mount using all of the incl hardware, with this process of elimination you will figure out what the remaining pieces of hardware are for.
PROS: -Lots of adjustment points for all dimensional tweaks to align my projector.
-Used it for the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3020, only 3 of the available 4 projector mount connections were possible to use due to the layout on the projector.
CONS: Included instructions are really bad and very hard to follow. Example - they mention using screw 8 which is not included in the kit. For mounting the bracket to the ceiling, the instructions provide no guidance on what types of wall the included hardware is for. I was not able to position the bracket at a ceiling joist due to screen center point, requiring the mount location to straddle joists so I ended getting separate toggle bolts to fasten the bracket to the ceiling, which is older style plaster.
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
