I'm looking to mount a 50" Plasma on the wall in the family room. I was going to go with the Tilt Mount through Monoprice, but after doing some searching, I see there is no way to go 0 degrees with it. At this point, I'm not sure if I need Tilt or not, and knowing you can't have a "No Tilt" option on the MP mount, maybe the flush mount is better for me.

The top of the 50" PX80u Panny Plasma will be around 7 feet. I'll almost always be Reclined in the sofa, so my head will be angled looking up. However, others may not always be reclined. Should I have it slightly tilted, or not at all?

No picture but I can tell you that a tilt mount in the full "upright position" is pretty darn flat. It may not be 0 degrees but visually it looks 0. I am looking at my panny right now and it looks real flat to the wall...and it is on a tilt mount.

42" in the dining room.
50" in the bedroom
80" in the living room

65" in the family room
106" in the family room

How high do you have your TV mounted on the wall? How far is the top of it from the floor?

Panasonic TH58PZ700U, top of panel 29" from ceiling. Monoprice wide tilt mount. As you can see there is a slight tilt even though it is set for 0 degrees.

There are hundreds of members pictures in the AVS Theater Gallery - go to the very top of this page and click the "Theater Gallery" tab and you'll find tons of pictures of people's setups (both LCD and Plasma) and lots of em are wall-mounted units.

I found that the biggest issue for me was access to the back of the set.

Most of my cables are ran though the wall, but I will sometimes hook something up temporaily, and will need to hook the cable up. Having a mount that will provide some flexability to do this was important.
