I went with the LT25 because I wanted some sort of tilt so hopefully there is a little more room. What bolts fit this TV? I have a ton of them that came with the mount. M4.M5,M6,M8? Did you need any spacers? How big is the TV look when you actually get it up? WOW factor?
TV is HUGE. You notice that when you try to pick it up, like Superman lifting a Buick off an old lady!!!!
I coming from a Mitsu 65" RPTV, so it is as huge as that thing is bulky. Pretty much the same size, housing wise. You need M8 screws. If you are just going to use just a washer, they can't be longer then 15mm. The mounting hole can only accept a max depth of 31/64 or .48" or just a hair under 1/2" My Sanus mount came with M8x25mm screws, so with the spacers that came with the mount, they were about 1/4" too long. I bought some M8x15mm screws at Ace Hardware, which saved me from using a dremel on the longer screws.
My room was configured for a hidden recessed 120" or 135" screen that was going to drop down in front of this TV, but it is so huge and awesome I'm going to forgo the screen. My old TV only had component video, so I can't wait to see all my Blu Rays at 1080p. I did just watch 1/2 of Star Trek 2010 that was streamed from my video server, and . . . WOW!!!! I just received a copy of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue for my PS3 today. This is going to be the christening for my gigantic screen.
