putting a feeler out there....would there be any interest in someone wanting to purchase this mount from me? it is the MP 4926 tilting and swiveling mount.http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
it is currently on backorder, and has been pretty much since it came out. they only get a couple in at a time, and i happened to get one of them about a month or so ago.
as you can read below in a previous post of mine (page 6), the mount itself is awesome; it is my setup that it does not work as perfect as i had hoped. and that just comes down to me having too small of a TV...i personally think.
i originally planned to just cut the plate the LCD attaches to, because it stick out the sides of the screen. this by itself would not be any issue for me. however, after looking closer, i realize that even after i cut that plate, the wall plate will still be visible on the side of the LCD. this is all because my TV is only 32" and should be at least 37" to hide these plates.
from my personal experience, i believe this mount is best suited for 37" and larger LCDs and plasmas.
just as a note, the mount itself is fantastic, and way overkill for any LCD of this approximate size. me getting rid of it has nothing to do with this as a Monoprice product, just me having too small of a LCD to hide the structure of the mount.
just so it is understood that i trust and like the Monoprice product, i will be replacing this mount with another Monoprice mount.
what i will be purchasing:http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
this one is more like the style of mount i had for this LCD in our last house and i know it will work better for me in this installation.
i do not have a price in mind just yet, but this is a copy of the original invoice:
for anyone interested to gauge an offering price. if there is any interest, i can create a classified listing if needed, otherwise, just PM me with questions, offers, etc. it is basically brand new and in perfect condition, so i am not looking for completely lowball offers. i'd store it in the attic or give it away if that is the case. this is basically just the chance for someone to get this mount without having to wait for MP to get it back in stock.

the LCD weights about 40#, and the mount is said to handle up to 125#. the mount is intended for LCDs and Plasmas 32"-52". it is a single arm, double articulating setup, where the arm mounts off center to the wall plate.
i needed a new mount to place my LCD in the corner of our room. i needed something that was going to allow me to place the unit however i needed. since it would be partially extended while mounted, it needed to be stout.
the 4926 is about as stout as i could ever expect from a single arm mount. it supports the unit with NO issues at all....NO sagging, NO unwanted flex. it articulates smoothly and does everything it should.
i will say though, that this mount is best suited for a 37"+ TV, vs. a 32"+. the sides of the plate that the TV mounts to is a bit too wide for a 32" and you can see a little bit of it sticking out the sides when looking at the unit from any other angle than straight on.
this is not too big of a deal for me b/c i will simply cut that plate so it does not extrude beyond the LCD. i'm sure this was not intended by the manufacturer, but i have no issues with it, and it will then make this the perfect mount for my 32". as far as i am concerned, this is overkill for that size of LCD....i have no problem with that.
*note: while not ideal, i was only able to use one stud with 3 lag bolts on one side of the mount (side where the arm is mounted), and used 4 toggle bolts on the other side of the wall plate. i hate using toggle bolts, but this was my only solution. the wall plate does not move the slightest bit while still or while articulating the TV.
(i am in the process of running a new power outlet behind the TV, along with A/V cable plates for through wall runs)
