So I purchased the MonoPrice Ultra Slim mount to mount my PN51D7000 (49 lbs) and I'm worried about my mount strength what do you think?

I drilled around till I found what seems to be wood and put in two wood screws in the middle of the bracket.

I couldn't find anymore wood beams so I put on the left and right sides of the wood screws 8 Drywall Anchors, (4 on each side):



DO you think 8 of these Drywall Anchors combined with 2 wood screws into wood is enough?

I went with this method because I live in Florida and I have 1/2 drywall, a 1/2 inch void, and then concrete block, not alot of room to work with, and I figured using TapCon's into concrete block with 1/2 drywall and 1/2" void would not create a strong hold?

I've hung multiple plasma TV's on drywall with no actual beams with no problems. One was a 58" Panasonic, 100lb's, and another was a 64" Samsung, 90lbs. The Panasonic is at 3 years and going strong. On the Panasonic I used those same style anchors. Personally, I think you'll be fine.
