Mine came with a Sanus VMPR1-03 & it works quite well.

Almost any mount 'works'. They can be tough to square to a wall, move a bit when you try to tighten them, and be poorly built overall, but they 'work'. If you want a GOOD mount, then the best I've seen is the Chief RPM series Elite mounts. The RPMU or RPMAU is the best mount on the market, but I'm guessing it will 'break the bank'. Of course, unlike projectors, you only need to buy one universal projector mount in your entire life. Kind of like a good screen, it makes more sense to put money into technology that won't be changing vs. technology that changes every year.

You could also save some money by going with a Chief RSM instead of RPM, it's identical but about 2/3 the size (and holds half the weight). Here's the best price I found on that: http://www.thefinalclick.com/Chief-RSMAU-Universal-Mini-Elite-Projector-Mount--Black_p_86403.html

EDIT: Actually, only a $15 difference, so the question is whether you want a heftier mount to be able to accommodate potential larger projectors in future, or something a little more compact.
