4.0 out of 5 stars Solid mount and a good bargain., December 20, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: VideoSecu Tilt TV Wall Mount Bracket for Most 37"- 70" LCD LED Plasma TV Flat Screen with VESA 200x200 to 700x400mm, Sturdy Steel Wall Plate Load Capacity 165lbs, 15 Degree Tilt up Free 7ft HDMI Cable and Bubble Level 3KR (Electronics)
Mounted my Samsung 50" plasma using this mount. My display is about 70 pounds.

Installation was fairly simple. The back plate is 30 inches wide, so you will only be able to get 2 studs max. Important points:

1. It is very important to make sure the lag bolts drill into the studs.
2. The included hardware is iffy, so go spend the $5 at your local hardware store and get some better bolts.
3. The level on the back plate is not 100% accurate, so make sure to use your own.

The important thing to to measure where you want your holes and then measure them again and then make sure everything is level.

The construction of the mount and rails felt very sturdy.

For those that have never mounted a tv before there are 2 parts. A back plate that bolts on to your wall and then 2 rails that bolt onto the back of your display. You then place your display on the backplate. The rails have hooks to secure it onto the plate and then screws at the bottom to make sure it doesn't come off.

Distance between the back of the display and the wall is about 2.25 inches. This is fairly tight and makes it difficult to hook up cables, so make sure your cables are hooked up before mounting the display.

Thanks for the great review. For those looking to buy this, would you happen to know the size of the screws/bolts you bought? This would be helpful so I don't have to wait to receive the item to go and purchase. Thanks!

I have the same mount, and just ordered a 2nd one. I mounted a 46" plasma, and will be mounting a 50" plasma. The included hardware seemed of good quality. I had no issues with it at all.

Hi, Thanks for a great review!

I'm considering purchasing this for my new 50" plasma. I notice your review was back in 2009.

1. Do you still recommend this mount? Do you prefer another one over this?
2. Can the tv be mounted on this without a tilt? Or does it alwasy tilt down a little due to the weight?

Thanks much.

Hi, I still have this mount to this day. I would still recommend it. I don't believe my tv is tilted.
