This is an excellent mount. Using it with a LG CF181D, and the black matches well. I was able to mount this at the top of my wall with only 2 lag bolts in the top two holes into solid studs. My cables are tucked away neatly inside the arm, all the way to the wall. There are plenty of adjustments you can make after your projector has been mounted. I recommend this to anyone who doesn't want a ceiling mount and would prefer a wall mount.
PROS: Does the job Very sturdy Good solid materials Cable management is excellent. Looks great.
This is a great mount. Easy to install and very secure once it is. Installing it solo it was easier to mount the arm assembly to the slide out piece first and then slide it into the main bracket mounted to the wall. That way I didn't need to support the projector for very long. Tried putting the arm assembly on the "hanger" first but could not get the lock screws threaded before I thought I might lose grip on the projector. If you have two people and a ladder, that would be cake. As it is, one person with a ladder has to work quick and get the first lock screw in while wrangling the projector, and it's not fun. If you have a way to support the projector safely while doing it though, all the better.
PROS: Looks fantastic Once locked in, no slippage so far, but still positionable Easy to mount (although see above)
CONS: Needs longer arm extensions - will not fit an Epson Home Cinema 5030UB/6030UB as the arms do not span to ~13" as needed. If the mount can support that much weight, why do the arms not reach far enough for large projectors? Baffling. Knew this going into it from another review though and also had arms from a previous mount that I added to these (2 of them) which worked great. A bit silly these are so short though - measure first to be sure! Great for the price though.
I bought this mount a couple weeks ago, started assembling it today. So far - good hardware, but terrible instructions.
The Main Bar had a couple scratches on it, right out of the bag. I'm hoping they're not noticeable upon final installation near the ceiling. The mounting bracket holes are spaced widely apart in a rectangle and do not allow single-stud installation (which is the typical use case). The arms are too short for my Epson 5030UB, which will require further fabrication.
My biggest complaint is the terrible instructions. Here are the stickers on the faster bags:
Contents of bag 1 M6x25 4 (no match) M6x12 2 (accessory 5) M5x8 2 (accessory 4) M5x10 5 (accessory 6)
Questions/comments for Monoprice: 1. There are four lock washers, four flat washers, and four stud posts that are included, but there is no mention of them in the instructions. Where do they get used? 2. The included M6x25mm is mislabeled as a M6x35mm in the instructions. 3. Regarding accessory 6 (M5x10): In the instructions, step 1 specifies qty 4 and step 2 specifies qty 2, but that adds up to 6 and only 5 are provided. 4. In step 2, the second reference to Figure 5 should be to Figure 6. 5. In step 2, it specifies to attach the Main Bar Overview to the fixation using accessory 4 (M5x8), which is both the wrong quantity and size. 6. There is no mention of where accessory 4 (M5x8) should actually be used. 7. On the parts bag, accessory 8 (6x50 wood screw) should be labeled as 6x50 on the tag, not M6x50 (which is a metric bolt reference). 8. Step 2 specifies to use accessory 7 (described as a M6x35 tapping screw) for masonry installation, but no such masonry fastener is included. 9. The grammar is terrible. Step says to "invaginate" the low cap. Will that get me arrested?
I have stopped assembly because of the confusion as to which part to use where. I'm going to open a support ticket for them to address items 1 and 3 above to unblock me.
PROS: sturdy, cosmetically attractive, good wire management
CONS: terrible instructions, mounting bracket not set up for single-stud installation, short arms
I wanted a wall mount with a long arm and this one solved my purpose. It's ?easy to install and the design makes it easier to hide the wires. The design helped in tilting the projector vertically and horizontally. I will definitely recommend it.
I used this mount to mount my Panasonic PT-AE8000U on the wall. This install solution enabled me to have an attractive mount on the rear wall rather than using a ceiling mount with a long extension bar (to clear ceiling fan in middle of room.
Installation was easy and I am confident it is very sturdy. Once installed, it is still height adjustable (+/- 2"), you can adjust up/down tilt (+/-15° ) and you can adjust horizontal tilt/level (+/- 5°).
PROS: Easy to assemble, sturdy, attractive, versatile, highly adjustable..
CONS: Directions could be better, mounting holes are exactly 2" apart, so it is impossible to fit all 4 holes on a standard stud, should include toggle bolts or anchors for holes that can't be mounted to stud
