People, I looked at this because it's a $13 item, but you have to understand what you need and the mount's upper limits so it won't disappoint you and waste your time.

The mount description says max. VESA 300 x 260. This generally means a HDTV up to about 40" (200 x 200). I checked several 39"-40" HDTV's and they use 200 x 200. (My situation is a 32" back-lit LED LCD @ 10 lbs, very light).

The width of the mount is about 13" (337mm) so it won't span 2 studs (@ 16" center), but most NEW (2012 models) are in the 20-30lb range (CCFL's are at the higher weight spectrum while back-lit 40" can weight as little as 20lb w/o stand). As such, you can use 4 drywall plastic anchors (which were provided with my unit). For concrete or cement walls, I would suggest lead anchors which were NOT provided.
If you are able to position the mount over 1 stud (2 screws), and 2 other screws in drywall or plasterboard, and the HDTV is less than say 35 lbs, I think you would be safe for the long run.

Since I don't have a 42" TV, I don't know if those sets transition to 400 x 400 (one Walmart Sanyo 42" @ 33lb needs 400 x 400) so I would say the mount manufacturer is being too liberal in describing it suitable for 42" and up to 88lbs.

Bottom line, this is cheap & good mount for up to 40" (200 x 200) and up to 30 lbs (my guess, if no stud); ove 30 lbs, I would look for 1 stud before buying this mount. If you meet this, $13 and you're good to go. If 42" or more, or rated at 400 x 400, step up to the $25 mounts (look for free shipping) from other Amazon "basic mount" sellers -- the non-adjustable mounts are about 30mm from the wall, and the adjustable tilts are further out to provide needed clearance.

The steel is of the right heft gauge for the newer, lighter weight TV's, and the mounting screws seem complete.

Most the people reviewing this mount didnt do their research. Not all tv's have the same vesa pattern. It would hold the weight of a 42 inch tv as long as the vesa pattern on the tv is within the specs of the mount. It also mention its length, so those complaining it wont reach your studs should have read the product description. I bought it for a 32" in sceptre tv I wanted wall mounted in my work out room. The sceptre ways about 25lbs, I mounted it to 1 stud with two lag bolts and 4 heavy duty dry wall anchors that are rated to 265lbs each. This mount inst going anywhere. Also the bubble level on mine was actually accurate. It comes with some various hardware to mount the tv. I didnt use any though. Went to the hardware store and got some stronger hardware for about 2 bucks. also since the mount is so small it doesnt block any ports my 32 inch sceptre. The only negative i have is that one of the arms "prongs?" that hang on the mount, was a little bent. I bent it back. Cant complaing though, I mean come on, it was $10.

The installation guide says that this bracket can only be used on solid cement or hardwood walls. That's because the wall bracket is only 12" and can't span across 2 wall studs and they only provide cement anchors. This should have been stated in the item description.
I am returning it today.

I installed this mount in 10 minutes (did not use built in level because it was off). I have a Hisense 40 LED Smart TV and fits with some wiggle room. Very pleased with purchase and will buy form this company again.

I bought this to wall-mount my 32" Westinghouse TV because of its small size. The TV is really slim and I didn't want a big old platform bolted to the wall that would be really visible and an eye sore from the side.

As other reviewers noted, the piece that attaches to the wall is too short to span between studs, which I expected of course. Mine actually went between two studs and just into drywall using the included anchors, which hold securely enough for a little 32" like mine, as long as you don't drill the holes too big.

The rails that attach to the TV fit okay, but the screw holes are a bit loose for the included mounting screws, which makes it even more difficult to level the thing. The included screws only come in one size for each kind of thread, and for my TV they were about 1/8" too long, and would have damaged the TV had I forced them in. I had to buy a box of washers and use a pile of them on each screw to make my own standoffs, as none were included with this kit, a first for me (and I've hung many TV's in my life). With a little creativity I was finally able to secure the rails to the back of the TV.

The rail that attaches to the wall is another problem. Built-in level is NOT EVEN CLOSE to accurate. I expected this also thanks to other reviewers. I used my own level; had I used the built-in I'm pretty sure it would be so crooked that my TV would slide off and break into pieces on the floor.

Even though I leveled everything perfectly, when I hung the TV, it was still crooked. The bracket showed perfectly level with my own level, but the TV did not. Probably due to poorly measured and drilled holes in the TV brackets. I fixed this by placing some black duct tape on the low side rails to build up a little thickness until it hung level.

Then, surprise surprise, I couldn't get to the screws on the bottom once the TV was hung (to secure it in place) because the TV speaker at the bottom stuck out in back and blocked access to the bottom screws. So I had to take the whole thing down, get more washers from the hardware store, longer screws for the TV, make bigger standoffs, put the whole thing back so I could reach the screws to secure the whole thing.

Two days and several trips to the hardware store later, I finally had a securely hanging level TV on my wall. I've mounted many 80" and up TV's for clients, and never had this much trouble.

Now that it's all done, it is secure and looks great. However, the $10 including shipping I paid paled in comparison to the amount of work it took to get this thing right. As long as you know what you're getting into, this thing will work fine for a small TV. I don't know if I'd use it for anything larger than a very slim and light 32". Expect to make a few trips to a hardware store, and make sure the kids aren't home when you're installing because you will be swearing a lot!

It arrived as stated...small, strong wall mount for 32 in Samsung tv I purchased earlier. I just used 2 large wood screws in the center into a stud and then 2 small anchors on the left and right edges to increases stability and keep it lvl. It is very snug to the wall whicjh is good for having a very low profile, but annoying when installing wires/etc.... just easier to attach wires etc with it off then the mount then put it on mount when ready. Also, it does not tilt so will be flat against the wall and not tilt up/down..... they dont say it will but just be ready for it.

This was a perfect, inexpensive wall mount for my 40" LED TV. Arrived quickly and an easy install. It may have taken 30 min tops to get the TV up and ready to go. The mount is slim and keeps it close to the wall for minimal gap. the only draw back being that if you are using anything but an HDMI cable the cables will bend against the wall.

Received on day promised. Easy to mount on wall. Fit a 32 inch flat screen TV with no problem. I have seen the same type of wall mount priced up to four times the cost of this one. This is a real bargain. Very happy with this purchase.

Great deal, I mounted this to a drywall wall after going to the hardware store and purchasing drywall anchors for $2.00. Seriously that is all it took and now our 32" tv is securely mounted to the wall and looks great. The built in level helps with installation. The light construction is nothing to discourage you. Most LCD TV's don't way that much to begin with and to think you really need some sturdy anchors in the wall is being overly cautious. A standard dry wall anchor hold up to 30 lbs, I found some that can hold up to 150lbs. My 32" tv weighs just 30lbs. My 55" LCD weighs just 60lbs. So knowing this mount is designed to accommodate TV's only up to 42", it is safe to say that anchoring it to drywall is safe.
