I'm sure that some will interpret a four-star rating as saying there is something wrong with the product. I don't think there is anything wrong, but there are some ways in which it could be improved. I installed the mount on my 42" Sony Bravia TV.
First of all, the product does exactly what it promises. The TV can be adjusted to tilt up and down and it can be swiveled from side-to-side. The construction of the product is sound. (I find no factual basis for the review that mentioned "low quality parts".) Although the mount is heavy and requires two persons, the installation was straightforward. (Yes, the instructions are not written by a native speaker of English, but I was able to figure them out with little problem.) It mounts well on my 16-inch spaced wall studs; it would work on closer spacing but not for spacing greater than 18". One reviewer claimed that the product, "when closed in, sticks way too far out from the wall". Well, that's the trade-off for the swivel feature. If you don't want the swivel and want the TV close to the wall, you should buy a different product. Some have questioned how far it swivels. The answer to that depends in part on your TV. If your TV is large, then its side will hit the wall, preventing further swivel. My 42" does not hit the wall. I can swivel it about 45 degrees before the bracket holding the TV hits the wall.
So, keeping in mind that this is a fine product that does exactly what it claims, here are a few things that could be better:
(1) The corner of the bracket holding the TV can hit the wall as you swivel it. It would be nice if there were cushions for the corners. I bought some glue-on cushions from the hardware store, but a plastic cushion that wraps around the corner would be better.
(2) The bracket has no provision for cord management. Think about it--the various cords are hanging from the bottom of a TV that may be 20 inches from the wall. It would be better if there were a loop on the wall bracket so that the cords would be held closer to the wall.
(3) As others have commented, the screws that you need to attach the bracket to the TV may be the wrong length for your TV. That's easily fixed with a trip to the hardware store.
(4) As others have commented, a paper template for screw locations would make it easier to attach the bracket to the wall. That's true, but not very important. The screw holes are oblong in shape, so your measurement does not have to be very accurate.
Finally, when planning your installation, keep in mind that the infrared sensors on your cable box or whatever are not swiveling with the TV. You may find that, although you can see the swiveled TV from the side, you may not be able to operate it without installing some sort of IR repeater. Also, some may want to consider that external speakers will not be swiveled along with the TV. (There's no way to attach a sound bar so that it can be swiveled with the TV.)
I hope this review helps some of you decide whether this is the right product for you. In my opinion, quality is not a problem, but the product may not be suitable for you needs.

This TV mount is sturdy and the full movement and tilting features work great and I highly recommend the product. The only improvement I would suggest is to make the plate that mounts to the wall could be a little bigger. The mount had to be offset from the center of the desired location in order to mount it to the wall studs. However, using the full movement features of the mount corrected the centering issue.

This is a good product that does what it says. It was a bit heavy while trying to mount the 4 screws especially the first 2 of the 4 ones.

Once fitted in, it was very sturdy and would not budge an inch even when i tried to hang on it (I weigh around 160 lbs). I have a SONY Bravia KDL46S5100 and since the TV screws were a bit short, i had to get some lengthier ones from Ace hardware - hence only 4 stars for this product.

This wall mount is more flexible than a contortionist! It easily moves in every direction except up and down which is controlled by the screws to the TV. Price is very good!

Our moving company installed it for us about 1 year ago and had no complaints installing it. Works great for our 42" 5 year old Sony Plasma. No complaints. Love the swivel action - very worth having.

Perfect mount for my Sony 52" LCD. Easy to install with good instructions. Plenty of parts but the two sets of M6 screws for fastening the brackets to the set were too long and too short. I had to go to the hardware store and purchase the correct size. No big deal though. For the price this is a very heavy and stable mount that holds the tv firmly in place. The only thing that would make the install easier would be a template to gauge the hole locations and the height of the set from the floor especially for situations where height might be a critical part of the installation.

I purchased this mount roughly a year ago and use it to mount a 4 year old 42" Sony XBR LCD TV. For 42", the TV is pretty heavy. I have had no sagging (downward tilt) with the mount over the last year. It is more than adequate to support the TV. The only problem I had is I needed to go to the hardware store because the bolts that came with it did not work for me.

This is a VERY STRONG wall mount for my 52" HD, plasma TV.
I feel very confident that the TV is well protected.
The ability to adjust the TV in all directions and angles provided the perfect viewing location.

way too many things going on with this mount when you try to get it to go in the direction you want the tv to be in.maybe for a big screen tv it's ok but for a 40 inch or smaller this mount in my opinion is too bulky and it says its compatable with a sony but they didn't supply the screws with it that fit to connect the tv to the mount good thing i had xtra screw that were the right size from a previous mount that i used in another room. not too difficult to attach to the wall but i think if i had another choice of mounts i would go in that direction

I used the mount for a 40 inch Sony TV. It was too heavy to install as a one piece unit (I disassembled it somewhat so I could attach the wall plate first). It performs as advertised; it swivals effortlessly.
