What do you guys think?
The gearing on the Peerless mounts is nice, but they lack a yaw adjustment (rotating the projector around the axis of a pipe on which it might be mounted), other than loosening and retightening the bolts that hold the mount to the ceiling or a pipe. So you'd need to get yaw adjustment from the pipe, and it would be more crude, i.e. no gearing. Some will point out that if you mount it *perfectly* square to the wall, and everything in your setup is perfectly square, this won't be an issue. But I suppose that's true for other dimensions, too, i.e. maybe those people don't feel a need for adjustability in other dimensions, either. Personally, I like to be able to adjust my projector in all three dimensions necessary to get it square.
Chief makes nice mounts with all three axes of adjustment. The RSM, a mini version of their popular RPM, works great with our projector, that's what I have. I had a Peerless before returning it, and aside from their overlooking the fact that we live in a three-dimensional world, thought it was rather well engineered and built.
