Pretty amazing bracket,

This review is from: Peerless Full-Motion Plus Wall Mount 22 - 40 Inches LCD, Black (Electronics)
I got this to hang a 40 pound TV in my basement man cave. I have wood paneling down there (not my fault, man, the place was built in the 60s, upgraded in the 70s... at least the deep burgundy shag porno carpet is gone now...). I had to shim the paneling so there'd be no airspace between it and the underlying studs.
Follow the directions for the pilot holes, but if you have hard, 50 year-old wood like I did, you'll probably have to drill bigger ones. You'll know, because the screws won't go in. Be careful with the screws because, as another reviewer noted, they're a bit soft and you can strip them if you're not careful.
After I got this attached, I could hang my full body weight on it (near the wall, not levered out where the TV attaches of course) and it didn't budge. It's more than capable of handling a typical 46 inch TV these days, and the ability to move it around means I get about a 120 degree sweep so i can comfortably sit on the couch to watch or turn the TV toward the treadmill.
Cheaper than a TV stand, and a lot sturdier and more useful.
