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.
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.
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...
The mfr really should have spent that extra 0.20 on some decent screws and anchors. The ones that came with the mount are complete garbage! The anchors were really flimsy and cheap.
The anchors are the screw into the wall type and not your typical drill-a-hole-&-hammer-in-the-anchor type!
The instructions did not tell you what size hole to drill so you're left guessing at which drill bit to use. The screw threads on the anchors WILL throw you off 'cause it makes the anchors look a lot bigger than they are. Drill a hole too big and the anchors will not hold. Drill one too small and the anchors won't fit into the hole until you drill a bigger hole - good luck 'cause if you drill too big...you get it...
The screws are CHEAP! The heads strip with the lightest use. Why couldn't the manufacturer included some decent screws??? OMG, like it would have added what? 0.05 to the cost???
HINT, use your own anchors and screws!
