3.0 out of 5 stars Understanding the rating discrepancies, April 15, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: VideoSecu Low Profile TV Wall Mount for Most 32" - 65" LCD, LED, Plasma, HDTV Flat Panel TV with VESA up to 600x400 mm, Universal Wall Mounts Bracket ---Compatible with Sony Bravia, Samsung, LG, Haier, Panasonic, Vizio, Sharp AQUOS, Westinghouse, Pioneer, ProScan, RCA, Toshiba MF601B 1NN (Electronics)
I have installed two of these this week. The first, on an unobstructed wall, was a snap. The hardest part was finding wall studs. Tightening the locking screws was a little difficult, but not bad. The mount is sturdy, simple, and functional. I had no problems with the mounting screws, did not need spacers, and found the attached level as accurate as my own (or as accurate as my workmanship.) The second installation was in a cabinet alcove built into my new house. Everything went as before, until it came time to tighten the locking screws. The bottom of the TV is only about 4 inches above the cabinet below, the sides are obstructed by other cabinetry, and, of course, the low-profile mount puts the TV only about 1 1/2 inches from the wall. So far, I have found no way to reach the locking screws. (I am not too worried about this; I think only an earthquake will bring it down without being locked.)
If you are mounting this on a readily accessible wall, give it 5 gold stars for simplicity, sturdiness, and price. If you live on a fault line and want to mount your TV over a cabinet, you may want a tilting mount.

Tuning In says:
I can't see how you could dock stars off a product if you purchased it for a use other than as described. It's a wall mount, no where does it say that it would work nicely in a cabinet or recessed mount. If I decide to use something other than what it was intended for, I don't consider that a flaw in design.

agreed. this review is like saying a car is a POS cause it doesnt fly. You are lowering the rating cause you are wanting it to be a tv mount that extends out rather than just a wall mount. It was not meant to be used in a cabinet

I think if you are installing in a recessed area you do not need a low profile mount. In fact you would probably want one with a greater range of motion.
