Even if you don't have a small room, I would recommend this just to have your Kinect out of the way. It reduces the clutter around your TV and allows you to easily hide the Kinect wires behind your TV if mounted correctly. Set up if simple with a few screws that are hidden by the mount.
With that said, it holds my Kinect securely on the wall and I don't have any doubts that it will stay up there. Because I have an LED TV, the TV mount would not work for me as it would stick out. I did not want a floor standing one since that would get in the way. That being said, this was the only way to go and it had the added benefit of mounting the sensor high up therefore giving me an extra foot or two of play space.
I would buy this item again and suggest it to anyone, however make sure your wife/fiance/girlfriend is aware of what it will look like when it's installed. Meaning there will be a wire hanging down the wall. They don't seem to like that much, ask me how I know...
Item is made from metal and plastic.
1st: Attach metal bracket to wall with provided drywall anchors and screws (4 of each). (suggest using a level)
2nd: Slide plastic frame over metal bracket. (friction fit, does not lock in place)
3rd: Clip Kinect Sensor onto plastic mounting clip. (locks in place)
4th: Slide plastic mounting clip onto plastic frame. (locks into place)
Item is solid and sturdy if attached to the wall as per instructions.
Actual bracket size is 2-1/8" high x 3-1/8" wide x 4-13/16" deep (not including Kinect Sensor).
Another interesting note, the sensor clip has a threaded mount on the bottom of it like a camera/camcorder does. This would allow one to use just the mount in other applications.
Kinect Sensor can be easily attached and/or removed if you wanted to take it to another room of the house.
Installation was simple. My wall is pure drywall - no studs at all. The drywall anchors hold the mount securely, and I have no doubt that it will last until I need to move it. A cordless drill, a moderate sized bit (1/4 inch or so) and a phillips head driver bit is all you need to get this setup in minutes.
A little known feature of this mount is that you can forego the wall bracket and mount the sensor on a camera tripod. I'm sure there aren't many who can use it that way, but it could be helpful, especially if you are using Kinect with open source PC software for other-than-Xbox use.
Ideally, this unit would have a swivel on the mount, since walls are rather difficult to rotate for adjustment :)
Also, the screws are quite low quality. The head of one of them snapped off as I was screwing it into a wall stud, even though I had bored a pilot hole. Fortunately, I had a bunch in my workshop.
A suggestion before you start -- make sure you have some spacers or cylindrical washers, longer screws and extra drywall mounts if you need to resposition.
