Great Service, OK Mount
on July 28, 2010
Was very pleased with the speed of the arrival of my Samsung Wall Mount.
I just got bought a Samsung UN55C8000 3D LED TV, and I thought this would be the perfect pair. I installed the mount, and hung the TV (which slipped off of one of the Circles accidentally, but was held in place by the other).
I believe this is definitely the case of FORM over FUNCTION. The mount looks beautiful, and when hanging the TV on the wall it was closer than some of the Pictures that I have hanging - Amazing! But when trying to pull it from the bottom and engage the "kickstand" so I could install the connection cords, it was very unstable, and slipped off of one circle once again.
I love to hook up USB sticks to my TV's for pictures, etc. And the thought of having to engage that kickstand everytime I put the USB stick in frightened me. I believe the circles should be designed in a way where the well that holds the Cord is deeper, so even if you pull it forward it would not drop off unless moving it a lot upwards.
I finally reluctantly, purchased a IC Chief Wall mount,( http://www.amazon.com/Chief-Inches-Panel-Mount-Cables/dp/B0037V01P8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1280343134&sr=8-1 )and the TV is sooo much more secure, even when placing it in "Kickstand mode", it is built with four hooks, that hook on to bars, and the bottom ones are released forward when going into kickstand mode by pulling two simple cords in the back.
Looks wise, it isn't much different than the Samsung Wall mounts, actually looks like its floating more, and the set has much more room in the back which helps in ventilation!
