Awesome mount, one caveat,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sanus Systems LL11-B1 51 x 80-Inch Ultra-Thin Flat Panel Mount for TV (Electronics)
I bought this mount to hang a 55" Samsung U55D8000 3D TV. It looks AWESOME on the wall. Overall, the mount is a high quality product. The actual mouning process is very straight forward, but you do have to spend some time reading and perusing all the instructions first. Why? Because the actual installation instructions are pictures, virtually absent of any written, step-by-step instructions. Once you go through the pictures in steps and ascertain what is going to need to happen and when, then the process is very straight forward and simple. One warning though: Sanus provides you with a small hardware stores worth of different sizes of screws and spacers etc. The problem for me was that only two sets were the right thread and diameter for my television, but neither were the correct length!! The two sets were either too short, and wouldn't bite into the hole when used with a necessary washer, and the other set were too long and not able to be screwed in all the way because they bottomed out in the receiving holes on the television before being tight! So, after ensuring that I had the time and all I needed to hang my television, I had to stop and go down to the hardware store with both sets of "wrong" screws and find some in between the short ones and the long ones. They are metric and stainless steel. Luckily, I found what I needed, but at that point was pretty aggravated with Sanus for not providing me with the right size screws for my television, even though I had gone to Sanus.com first and used their online tool for determining which mount I needed based on my specific model and brand of television. Overall, despite this aggravating experience, I'm glad I bought this mount. It went up with relative ease, it's very slim and my television looks like a large, thin, picture hanging on the wall, and it's very sturdy and solid. The pop-out feature for cable access works great, but I do recommend that you attach most, if not all of your cables to the TV before hanging it. It's just a lot easier. You won't be disappointed in this mount at all, just set aside an afternoon, take your time, and be prepared for the possibility of having to make a run to the hardware store. Otherwise, you won't be sorry with the outcome.
