Could not be more pleased...
on June 29, 2009
For starters, in the interest of full discretion, this unit is my only experience with a projector mounting system. That being said, I would highly recommend this mount to anyone, veteran or novice, looking for a projector mount. On to the specifics. This mount is sturdy. I'm lucky enough to live in a loft apartment, with exposed beams (approx. 8"x12"). After installing the 3 long screws for the mounting plate, I gave it the ol' "wiggle test". It did not budge. Long story short (maybe a bit late for that) it passed the I'm hanging, all 205 lbs, from this projector mount test. This mount is very adaptable. It can be used as a wall or ceiling mount. The 12" extension is easily left out of the configuration for close to ceiling mounts. All the hing points are secured with a main hinge bolt, and a locking bolt. I found that the locking bolt when tightened full down will hold the projector in what ever position it is in, but with a little nudging it can be moved ever so slightly to whatever orientation it needs to be in. Once the secondary locking screws are tightened down this thing does not move. It also comes with a number of screws and 2 sets of arms to attach most any projector I could imagine. On the remote chance you have a projector with mounting points that are a completely obscure thread size and count anyone comfortable with hardware could be in and out of Home Depot or Lowe's in 10 min with the parts needed, less $2 tops. All in all excluding some hyper advanced pneumatic operated, robotic ninja, space monkey navigated, projector mount; I cant see someone really beating this unit in terms of strength, adaptability, and cost.
P.S. To the reviewer that complained that he or she was having to use the screws that hold the projector to the mount, to adjust it, please spend your free time making a friend with the smallest understanding of mechanical know-how, not confusing people with sub-par Amazon reviews.
