All i'm saying is that you get what you pay for. If I spent 3k on a set, I would not spend 60 dollars for a mount.
The briacing is much better.
You can spend less, but you get a limited range of movement.
Reviews were not that great for the monprice mount:
DON'T BUY THIS PARTICULAR MOUNT
Pros: None. The good news is that Monoprice sells several mounts that ARE strong enough. Buy one of those. I recommend that Monoprice discontinue selling this mount all together.
Cons: WAY, WAY too weak. Avoid.
This particular mount is nowhere near strong enough to support a large TV. Excessive twisting and bending occurred with a 60" Samsung plasma. Plus, just touching the TV when the mount was extended made it bounce up and down like it was hanging from a spring. I was concerned that the mount might break and drop the TV. I unmounted the TV immediatly after installation. It is that weak. This is the only product I have purchased from Monoprice that I hated
not strong enough
Pros: The unit seems well designed and the swivel and tilt functions seem to work very well
Cons: I bought this mount for a 65" plasma that weighs 123.5 lbs, which is within the specs listed for this unit (up to 70 " and 175 lbs). Upon attaching the TV to the mount, the whole arm bowed and flexed down like a wilted flower! This mount is not strong enough to support a TV this heavy. I'm not planning on returning this mount because I have a 32 inch TV that it should work very well with. I was very dissapointed when this mount did not live up to its advertised capibilities
Pros: This one arm tilt bracket is easy to install and with help from a third person, It's easy to attach the TV to the bracket on the wall and secure with one locking screw.
Cons: This one arm tilt bracket should not be used for any TV weighing more than 100 pounds.
It's supposed to hold up to a 175 pound TV, but it can not even support my TV that weighs 135 pounds.
I would not recommend this one arm bracket for any TV that weighs more than 100 pounds and that's even a stretch! It's now holding my TV, but It's sagging so much I have a coffee table and books under it to support it until I can find another two helpers to remove it and reinstall another bracket that is supposed to hold up to 200 pounds and it is a two arm bracket, which should be adequate. But after all of the trouble its been and all the time and future trouble ahead to remove the big TV, remove the sagging bracket, then reinstall the heavier bracket, the get two more helpers to finally get my TV up, finally done and over with!
