I am using the $59 VuePoint FPM115MF-B1 from Walmart for my 32"/~35lb Panny LCD. It is solid as a rock, no flexing or sagging, even at full 15" extension. Rated at 60 lbs, and from a major manufacturer, I think it would easily handle your TV. I also like the ability to get 'hands on' with the mount at Walmart before buying it, to ensure it is sturdy enough, as opposed to getting something sight unseen from a website.
Between the two Sanus mounts you were comparing, one has a 9" extension, the other 15". Depending on how much you need to angle the TV, that would be a consideration.


thank you very much!

Hello,

Wondering if there is a thin wall mount that pivots and tilts that will work with a 46" samsung. The thinnest I have found is at monoprice and is about 5 inches.

Thanks, Chris

just a little heads up if anyone else is interested in the $59 VuePoint FPM115MF-B1 from Walmart. I just got home from my local store and it was listed as $99. I pulled up the online price and showed them. I was informed that they don't match their own online price!! you have to order it online to get it for $59. I even went up to customer service and spoke to the manager and was told the same thing. complete BS if you ask me.

Here's a recent press release from Peerless on their new Slimline articulating wall mount that has a 1" separation from the wall. I do not believe anyone has an articulating mount that is closer than 1". I have yet to find a product number, price or anyone selling this new model yet. Anyone have any information?

Wow, that is a pretty slim mount! I guess I should have mentioned that I am on a monoprice sort of budget I am assuming that they will be $200+

Does anyone know how much these will be or know of any slim ones that are not terribly expensive?
Thanks again!

Hi - I'm installing my 52" Samsung LCD using the simplicity tilting wall mount from Costco...

Because of the length of the M8 screws and the spacer I have to use for the indented screw hole on the TV, there's a space between the back of the TV and the bracket - is that ok ??? Thanks!

I'm also looking at the monoprice mounts. My concern is that they only have about 20" of extension. Anyone know if that would be sufficient to mount a 52" LCD (about 50-54 inches wide) in a corner at a 45 degree angle? Doing the math, it seems like it should be sufficient, but my trig skills are rusty.

As an alternative, I've seen some good looking mounts on sale at ebay. They are pricier than monoprice, but they have extensions out to about 29 inches. They also have a rotation feature that the monoprice mounts lack. I'm also thinking that utilizing less of the extension capability would also result in less sag because of the reduced moment load relative to the design load.

The specification says the mount extends out to approx 20". If you're looking to mount a 52" set across the corner I don't know that a 20" extension is going to be enough. Possibly it will work if its mounted somewhat to the side of the corner instead of directly across the corner?

Extend a tape measure to the width of your set, and hold the tape across the corner. Eyeball the distance from the center of the tape back into the corner. If that distance is more than 20" you're SOL.

Don't ever make the MISTAKE of buying a Samsung TV..

The press release referenced their new slimline articulating wall mount that has a 1" separation from the wall. I have an email into the company for more details.

I got an email reply back from the company above regarding their slimline articulating wall mount and unfortunately it looks like it won't be available until near the end of the 2009. Too late for my needs. In the interim, I checked out a few available mounts and here's what I found:

I'm looking for an articulating wall mount that can handle a 60+" flat screen. The primary position will be flush to the wall with infrequent articulation but I want the articulation for ease of access to the wall behind the unit and for occasional reposition for viewing from another room. My primary objective is how flush it will hold the screen to the wall when fully recessed.

Here's the order of articulating mounts based on the depth they hold the display from the wall. Does anyone have any information of any other articulating mounts that are closer than these that I should be considering?

Sanus VMDD26 = 3.25” $340

Premier mounts am3 specs = 3.5” $260

Levelmount DC65DMC = 4.5” $230

Chief PDR-2534B = 4.5” $540

WMB60-175-ET12 = 4.6” $68

Peerless PLAV70-UNL = 5.5” $450

MountsMadeSimple MMS LAM50 = 5.7” $300

Digicom PMA-771 = 5.75” $180

Cheetah Mounts Prosfessional Dual Wishbone Cantilever Arm Mount 6” $200

OmniMount UCL-XP = 6.5” $330

Ready set mount CC-P18LB = 7” $200

There is a thinner mount which is higher quality then monoprice for a similar price. I have installed ERSE Mounts and they have what you want with about 3.1" from the wall. Link can be found at :http://www.erseaudio.com/VideoProducts/WMB60-175-T15

Hope this helps.

This company has higher quality mounts then Mono and for your budget. I have installed many with no problems. Link can be found at:http://www.erseaudio.com/VideoProducts

The link you shared shows the mount that tilts which has spacing from the wall of 3.1 inches. If you want the unit that tilts AND Pivots you'll need this unit which has spacing of 4.6" from the wall

You might want to consider the Peerless mount pictured in the initial post in this thread. Although it is not fully articulating, it may do everything you require. And it collapses to about 2.25" from the wall when fully retracted.

Has anyone ever seen a mount that articulates lower?

I have a common problem. The TV is mounted above the fireplace. In order to clear the mantle, the TV is mounted at about an eye level when you are standing. But most of the watching is done sitting down, which means you are always looking up, which is not really that comfortable.

Is there any articulating arm that brings the TV forward and lower so that it can be mounted above the mantle, but can be brought down (say about a foot or two) when I want to watch it?

Has anyone seen any mount that does this?

I did see this model from Peerless however I couldn't find where it was able to handle a 60" Pioneer plasma so I was unsure. The listing said it went upto 58" so I didn't consider it. Has anyone used this unit with a 60" pioneer plasma? I did find the following site that had it for around $260

Unfortunately Monoprice doesn't have a model that handles many of the newer larger Plasmas and LCDs. If you look at the disclaimer, their larger articulating units cannot be used with many of the larger plasmas and LCDs on the market.

I realized after I posted that your set is 60", and the mount is listed for up to 58". How heavy is your set? The mount indicates it can handle up to 150lbs.
The only other consideration is that since to mount only extends about a foot or so from the wall, you wont be able to angle the set to the side a very large amount, due to the width of the 60" set. If you set is under 150lbs you may want to email Peerless and get their thoughts.

http://www.mcmaster.com/#toggle-anchors/=ez25k

I've used these anchors to mount a couple of 37" TV's at work. They are pretty easy to use. The only downside is that it can be difficult to drill the pilot hole in the right place. Drill bits tend to "drift" when drilling into a metal stud.

I believe we used part number 97802A316 (down towards the bottom of page 3266). They are cheap, but you'll also have to purchase some 1/4-20 machine screws or carriage bolts.

Anyone familiar with or used these articulated wall mounts? They're listed as have a 4" profile when recessed which would make them some of the lowest profiles I've found so far (particularly for these prices). The seller's have thousands of positive ratings from past buyers. I assume that's a good sign.

ERSE mount posts...

Jim,

I note that all your posts on this board are about ERSE mounts, and have only shown up in the last few days.

The mounts do look nice, but I find no other testimonials about them apart from yours on this board, so I tried to find out more about ERSE before handing over even a modest amount of my cash to them in lieu of Monoprice (with whom many here including me have done business).

Given that ERSE is located in Ohio (like you) and is in turn seemingly owned by a guy named Jim (like you), you'll forgive my cynicism over your sudden flurry of similar posts.

Are you Jim Smolik and/or do you have a commercial interest in ERSE?

Full disclosure of vested interests is always appreciated.
