I have 5 televisions mounted in my house and all but one of those is mounted with a Peerless mount. I highly recommend Peerless. They really make a nice product, but they are not cheap. Since I needed to wall-mount an older (2006) Panasonic 42” plasma television in a guest room in my mother’s house in Florida, I thought I would save a little money and try an Echogear (I only visit once or twice a year so the chances the tv would fall on me is pretty slim). The rest of the family would just have to tread lightly or use some of their money for a change. Fat chance. Anyways, I checked the tv’s owners manual and confirmed the weight was about 70 lbs. Since the mount can handle over 100 pounds, I thought I was in business. However, I was not in business. After installing the brackets on the back of the television, I then connected both halves of the bracket that attaches to the wall (yes, it comes in 2 pieces). It was at this point that I became very sad. The wall bracket was shorter than the distance between the holes on the back of the television. I had to visit one of the big box home improvement stores to overpay for an Omnimount. The Echogear appears to be a decent products, although in my opinion it is not as good as a Peerless or an Omnimount.
