This is a very timely topic for me. In answer to the question above, I had never seriously considered a wall mount for a TV, until recently. I have a 22 inch Samsung in our master bedroom at home. Ironically, when I first put a TV in there, my wife complained stating, "We don't need a TV in every room in the house!" I didn't argue with her, but simply left it on the bedroom dresser. It has a Roku 3, over the air capability, and DISH Network access.
Sometime after placing it there, I discovered that my wife was using that set. In fact, some months back she complained that she couldn't see it right when she was watching in bed. She advised me that she wanted a wall mount for it. So, I dutifully stopped by Micro Center a couple of months back. The could news was a nice mount was on sale. The bad news was there were sold out. So, I left empty handed. We were leaving on a week long Caribbean cruise soon and I thought I would wait and see if she mentioned it again.
Sure enough, more recently she did mention it again. Back to MicroCenter and I bought an Inland wall mount. It is a bit above eye level, but it is located in a place in our bedroom which is pretty much the definitive location for a TV. And, perhaps most importantly, it tilts down enough so that she can watch it.
Oh, and for whatever it is worth, the Roku 3 was one of my Christmas gifts to her this past Christmas. She also complained about that stating we didn't need it. As it turns out, however, she uses the Roku 3 quite a bit in the master bedroom!
Oh, and to get back slightly on topic, our primary flat panel TV is not wall mounted. It is in a corner location and it is on a stand. Now that I have some experience installing a wall mount, I might be willing to do it again.
