I have used them both, I can tell you the differences are minute. The differences are the Pinpoints uses 4 screw holes to drill into the stud as opposed to the Videosecu's 3, but seriously the screws are long, so the hold is so strong you do not need 4 holes at all. The Videosecu also comes with anchors which allows you to mount in concrete walls, I don't think the AM40s did. Also, the Videosecu's have cut out slots on the side in case you want to add a security strap. This might be beneficial to you if you want a better hold on the speaker without drilling into it, but the proper strap has to be ordered separately, although you could probably use any nylon strap and buckle from a hardware or camping store. Aside from that, the parts are identical. All in all, I would prefer the Videosecu mounts for the security strap slots, even if they were equally priced. The build quality and parts quality is the same.
