guys, ignore the childlike behavior.
like a child, he will only make that annoying sound over and over as long as he thinks people are paying attention to him. if he knows he is getting under your skin, he will continue the behavior. ignore him, he loses his control, and he will move on.
he made his point in his first couple posts in this thread. after that, he continued to post the same thing over and over only posted to cause a stir....just like that annoying sound a child will make.

the original poster did ask for opinions and experiences. this guy gave his thoughts along with everyone else, they were noted. it only needs to be mentioned once for the sake of rationality.

I couldn't agree more! Way too much childlike behavior here, and not just me in my replies. Funny how you think I'm the only one acting like a child though, but I respect your opinion.

quick question for any Canadians out there who've ordered wall mounts from monoprice.

the shipping costs are crazy. $55 for the product, $100 for shipping?

that pretty much negates the price advantage. any other options i may have?

Canadian here. I ordered a 3724 and a 3725 along with a whole bunch of cables and other accessories. My order total was over $400CDN. I had it shipped to Champlain, NY to Bordermail, as I've got a mailbox there. Fortunately, Montreal is only about an hour away from the NY border so I just drive down and pick up my goods. Only have to pay GST/PST when coming back to Canada but it's still worth it in the end.

If you're not too far from the border, you could consider that option. Or have a look at some of the Monoprice mounts at OnlyBestRated: http://www.onlybestrated.com/mounts-...6715fdbb8e4616
post #248 of 359
Im about 45 mins from the border, so that might be a good option.

however lets say i go with OnlyBestRated option. Picking up the option I wanted (model # 3900), with shipping comes to about $85 CDN (before tax).

now i looked at Best buy, and they have the Sanus MT25-B3 which supports 15" to 42" , for $101 CDN.

for the extra $15 would i be best off to go with the Sanus model?




edit: upon doing a quick search, i think i'll save a lot of money getting it shipped to a mailbox in Washington

I've got a 42 panny (silver front).

i'm going to go ahead and order a 3900 or 2852. the only difference is one is black, the other silver. does that make a difference in the slightest? or should i just stick to the basic 3900 black model
post #250 of 359
If the back of that set is black, I would go with the black mount. You probably want it as unobtrusive as possible.

Are your bolts countersunk on the other side of the plywood?

You can imagine what 130lbs of cantilevered $3000 Panasonic 58" Plasma load could do to a brick fireplace if not attached properly.

Here I took two sheets of ¾” plywood and joined them as one using 100% coverage glue and pneumatic driven staples.
I then used 4 original (old Vizio 50" plasma) and 4 additional new 3/8” concrete anchors.

To attach the articulating mount to the plywood I used 12 flat head machine bolts, bolted through the 1 ½ inches of plywood, all with oversized washers.

I’m a slim and trim 240lbs of pure love machine, I hung off of it and got a slight groan from the wood but other than that I’m good with the mount and especially the value from Monoprice. The mount is rated at 175lbs.

I added the plywood instead of mounting directly to the brick in an attempt to share the torque loading and then in the event of a partial anchor failure the remaining anchors should assist in arresting any further movement. All this is good as long as the brick wall doesn’t pop out. If it falls, I’m going to a 19” desktop unit.

Yup. They're hex head machine bolts that I fed through from the other side of the plywood and secured with washer and nuts on the front side.

Good stuff. I also used two sheets of 3/4" plywood but didn't join them together with glue. I just attached the wall plate to the plywood sheets with 6 flat head machine bolts. I then attached the entire assembly to two wood studs, and the lag bolts for one of the studs actually goes through the wall plate. It's all rock solid and I love this mount!

I mounted my new Panasonic 46PZ85U (77 lbs) using the Monoprice 3725 mount this weekend and the installation looks much the same as the pictures Andrew911tt posted. The mount is pushed all the way back to the wall and is just a hair off being parallel to the wall. I bought 3" lag screws and used those instead of the 2.5" lag screws that were supplied. Very easy installation.

I am very happy with the result and the product.

I mounted my 40" in the bedroom using the 3991. I like the way it came out. very sturdy mount. only issue was i had 24" studs so i had to do a little modifications. Its nice having a 40" in the bedroom. cant wait for the 58" to finally get here though!!!!!!!
post #256 of 359
Here's my Panasonic 50PZ85 on a 3610 (Low profile). These are the only pics I have at work atm.

I'm planning to mount my bedroom 42" plasma on a 3724 when I find some spare time.

looks great. how many inches up to the middle of the screen?
post #258 of 359
I'd say ~41" or so to the middle of the screen.

I bought a monoprice tilt wall mount (can't recall which one, it's the basic one that is about $25). I have a 42" Panny plasma mounted on it for a while now. No problems, flexing, etc.

I was concerned it would not support tv (just being cautious, wasn't doubting the mount). So, prior to mounting TV, I pulled on it as hard as I could. I lifted myself on it and shook around and tried to stress the mount. I weigh 175 pounds, btw. The mount was solid, rock solid. I used 4 lag bolts to attach to wall. I have no concerns about this mount. I do want to get a 3725 for my 52" LCD (about 125 pounds I think) and want to get any additional advice anyone would offer. I saw the above pictures and they look great!

i recently swapped out my MP 4926 mount for a MP 3411.

http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2




the 4926 is a great mount...very sturdy and strong...but it was too wide for my 32" LCD.

the 3411 is better suited for my 32" LCD and corner installation. for its size and design, it is extremely strong. it says it is good for a 17"-30", but it handles my 32" with ease. the wall plate portion is a bit wide so you would only be able to tie into a stud on one side of it. however, the best thing is to cut a piece of 2x6, bolt that to the wall stud, and then bolt the mount to the 2x6. i did that with mine and it is strong as can be.

this mount has great flexibility, and i have no question of its strength.

i'll post installation pics as soon as i upload them. i do need to go back and patch all the holes from the 4926 mount though. because of its design, and my stud positioning, i had to use a few toggle bolts to secure one side. that required rather large holes, which will require some extensive repairing.

hello all,

i received my monoprice 3725 mount not too long ago and took it out of the box yesterday. problem is, the front plate has a good amount of rotational play with relation to the wall plate. it seems clear that if i hang the tv off of exact center, the front plate will rotate a few degrees. i don't have the mount near me now, but as i recall, the play originates in the first joint behind the front plate... anyone know if i can just crank those allen bolts in that first joint to eliminate the potential wobble?

thanks,

Those allen bolts on the front plate are intended for leveling your TV once it is mounted, so just in case you mounted the wall-plate slightly off-level, you still have the ability to compensate and level it at the front plate.

Btw, this is explained in the manual that came with the 3725, so RTFM.

Using a Monoprice wall mount for a Pro-111 and an OmniMount Motion52 for a fhd1. Both work well.
post #266 of 359
Okay, I will reread the manual when I get home.

Good to hear Paris_TN, I will also be using the mount on a Pro-111.

How bout this, have you or anyone had to tighten or touch or adjust anything on the mount itself before putting it on the wall? Was it solid right out of the box?

Thanks

I want to hang my TV in the middle of my living room wall, and there is a stud RIGHT in the centre of the wall. Problem is, the studs are 20 inches apart, so I won't be able to hit two studs with the mount if the mount is centered. I'm new to this... but when you put the tv on the mount itself, does it have to be perfectly centered or can it be moved to one side or the other...

Thanks!

Yikes.... so the studs are 24 inches apart...

I have one of the tilt mounts made by Monoprice (ID 3004). Once mounted on the wall I can slide the TV maybe 5-7" in either direction on the wall bracket, but not much more than that. I am sure the amount of adjustment after install is different with each Monoprice mount and the adjustment amount will also vary from TV to TV as different sets have different bolt spacing for attaching the brackets.

Im confused. Are your wall studs 20" or 24" apart?

If you studs are 20 inches apart you could use Monoprice mount 3401 which has a wall plate that is 45" wide. At 20" stud spacing you could hit three studs if you are centered on the middle one.
