Not sure why this bracket was called terrible, because it's anything but terrible. It DOES require that you know how to read - the included screws are for wood and brick and are clearly identified in the instruction pamphlet as such. If you're going to do something different (like, I dunno, hang it on drywall) then you need to provide your own screws and newfangled drywall anchors.
I have this hanging on drywall in a breakroom at my office and it works just fine there - there's plenty of weight on it too, check out my pictures.There are sliding rubber feet for traction that you can move along the length of the arms - it's a nice touch.
I would have liked the coverplate in the back (that hides the bracket) to snap onto the bracket just a little more snugly, but that's only a problem when you're installing it. I was actually hoping to use it as a pseudo-wire channel but that was expecting just a wee bit much.
If you're on the fence about this, go ahead and buy it - if you install it properly and have reasonable expectations about the weight you're going to put on it, then it'll work just fine.
