I need a TV wall mount that can:
1. Go out at least 15 inches from the wall to allow a 90 degree angle, because the 'audience' will often be sitting facing parallel to the mounting wall.
2. Be sturdy on the wall stud, but allow the TV to be lifted off the wall mount (OK if the arms come along, folded up), because sometimes I want to set the TV on its stand on a table for a larger viewing audience. I just don't want my Victorian living room to suffer an all the time techno-invasion.)
The TV is a Samsung 32in flatscreen Series C5 5000 with holes in a 200mm square.
I guess my other question is that, when a product says the holes are 8in, are they really Ok with 200mm?

No problem. Plenty of choices.

Pick one where you mount backets to the TV, then attach the brackets to the arm and secure with a set screw.

You decide. 200mm is about 1/8" less than 8".

Hi Colm,
"...allow the TV to be lifted off the wall mount...

But then when I want to take the TV down off the wall to set it on a stand in the other room, won't I have to hold the TV (support its weight while I unscrew it from the plate)? I am sure I physically cannot do that. Maybe I am not picturing what you are saying.
