What a NIGHTMARE,
This review is from: Cheetah Mounts APTMM2B TV Wall Mount for 20-75-Inch TVs Bundle with 10-feet Braided HDMI Cable and a 6-Inch 3-Axis Magnetic Bubble (Electronics)
Even though this product was really cheap in price, the reviews were pretty solid. So I bought it thinking it would be a good budget solution. The install instructions were the worst I have ever seen in my entire life. There were extra parts not even listed in the manual, the holes were drilled in the wrong spot, the washers were too small... The bracket itself wasn't strait or square, so even though I mounted the bracket level on the wall, when I hung the TV it was tilted to the side. I had to remove the TV and tweek the bracket to unlevel to make the TV hang level. All told this was a horrible purchase and an even more horrible install experience. This is what I get for buying cheap I guess. Pay the extra 15 or 20 bucks and get something from a decent brand.

He only asked if it was his first time. He wasnt being malicious. So deal with it and stop trolling.

Nope, not my first mounting experience. I mounted another TV in a different room using a mount from Costco. The difference was astounding. If you have a small TV that you don't really care about, this mount will work fine. I certainly wouldn't trust it to hold up anything expensive.

I think I'll go with the 1,000+ positive reviews vs. yours.
Thank you though.

Randy Silva, good comment. I've found that most people are fairly stupid and given the chance they will gladly prove it to you. So many of the reviewers on Amazon fall into this category. Just because more people like something than don't like it doesn't mean it's a winner. But when you only have a few negative reviews versus way over a thousand positive reviews it's pretty hard to argue the numbers. The wall mount may not be the best money can buy but it sure has worked out for the vast number of people who bought it. People are way more likely to take the time to complain about something they don't like than praise something they do like so that positive to negative ratio says a lot.

I can't speak to anyone else's experience with this product, only mine. It may have worked well for 1000 other people, but it didn't for me. As I mentioned in the review, the mount wasn't even square or level. Those are pretty important requirements when you're hanging something on a wall. As an Industrial Engineer, I feel I'm fairly capable of reading a bubble level. Inferring that I'm stupid is ignorant and irresponsible on your part. I've found that most people that scour Amazon looking for product reviews to comment on are in need of a life and maybe a girlfriend.

Not to mention i think a lot of low quality products comment on their own stuff. I've bought so much stuff with outstanding reviews only to order a piece of junk. And to complicate things even more your not always guarenteed to buy the same exact product as someone else ordering it. A lot of these type items are made by different manufacturers that don't have the same QA procedures.
That being said, i'm going to risk it anyway and try it out. I've also read reviews of it failing and destroying a television...Most people review within the first week or so .. comments are just guidelines... We shall see in time....
Thx for the honest review....
