Mount Used for Vizio 32inch M320NV,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cheetah Mounts ALAMLB Articulating Arm (20" Extension) TV Wall Mount Bracket for 23-55 inch LCD, LED and Plasma Flat Screen TVs up to VESA 400x400 and 66lbs, with full Ballhead Tilt, Swivel, and Rotation Motion, Including a Twisted Veins 10' Braided High Speed with Ethernet HDMI Cable and a 6" 3-Axis Magnetic Bubble Level (Electronics)
After a preparing the wall, and making holes and finally mounting the TV... Disappointment. Some reviews pointed the same issue with the slacking of the arm with the weight of the tv is a fact. I went by all the positive reviews but cheap is what we pay and crap is what you get I guess is the situation. The mount itself is sturdy but the weight of the TV, which I purchsed is M320NV weighs about 20lbs will cause it to lean fwd. After all the hardwork to put it up, was pretty disappointing. I suggest go with another product. After all said and done it isnt worth taking it back off to put a new mount, plus the holes you will need to patch up.... Suggest go with a little more reliable mount then this one.

i would be willing to bet that you didnt mount the anchors in the wall properly, i bet you used a hole that was too big, that is the only reason it would tilt. i mounted a 37" proscan on mine, weighing in at a lot more than 20 pounds, and i have no problems. the mount does exactly what it says it does. swivels 180 degrees, and tilts so that i can mount the TV quite high on the wall. and share it between the living room, the dining room and the kitchen. there is a certain level of DYI experience you need prior to attempting the install, i would suggest that you call someone who has this and try again.

Reading your comment and the reply of B Daniels below left me wondering who is right on this.
"...slacking of the arm" means the mount itself bends or flexes? Or was the mount improperly or insufficiently anchored to the wall and bend forward at the anchors?

Not seeing the mount install in person, my guess is that this guy just needs to tighten the screws to the ball/socket in the back of the tv mount. This gives the joint more resistance to movement, and prevents tv from tilting down under its own weight.
