The Kuro sits almost flat to the wall most of the time
(about 5" or 6" from wall surface to the front face of TV)
the Sanus can extend the TV so the face is nearly 2 feet from the wall.
...in addition to tilt and swivel
My screen drops down in front of the plasma (only when its pushed flat to the wall),
and just clears the face of it by about an inch or two.
my best guess is about 7"-8" from wall to screen surface.
I think I paid $330 at BestBuy for my VMAA18B (on sale). $450 is WAY too high.
See if FS will price match to TigerDirect.ca
(...price is $329 once you add it to your cart)
same model in the U.S. (at Tiger Direct.com) is only $249 right now
also check what Costco has to offer.
I think they carry Peerless and Mustang mounts for well under $300.
Monoprice has some good options as well if you don't mind cross-border shopping.http://www.monoprice.com/products/su...08&cp_id=10828
But if you really want to save money, skip the articulating feature,
once you get a PJ you'll likely never move the plasma again
