I'm sure this question has been asked over and over, but this is my first time mounting an LCD and I want to get it right.
I have a SAMSUNG 40" LNT4061F. It's about 46lbs with the stand. I use it in my bedroom mainly on my dresser with the stand. But I just bought a brand new home and of course all the new houses these days have nice gas heaters with place above it to put a flatscreen. It even has the electrical and cable hookups ready, so I'm certain it has studs to mount.
I don't really want to set it up there on the stand though, I want to mount it with it angled down a bit. Now considering the weight, what is the best mount, one that would give me some room to put a bigger one up there (planning to buy a second samsung lcd next year, 46 or 50" maybe). I'd like it as close to the wall as possible.
I saw this mount from Monoprice (item number 3900, can't post urls yet
). Cheap, but it got excellent reviews, but I don't know if I want to leave my tv in the hands of a cheap mount like that. Then I saw another one from monoprice I liked (id is 3725), but another thread here said it bends a little when its not articulated...
Any suggestions considering the weight and size of the lcd (that give me a little growing room?).
I love these forums, I could spend all day reading them!
