I bought a mount from Monoprice. They had a less expensive mount for 18
but I elected for a heavy duty mount for 27 then there was about 16 shipping.

The mount came with every imaginable mounting hardware and It fit my Panny 50
perfectly. Panny has a 100X300 hole pattern. I mounted the wall plate on 2 wood studs
then after 2 of us lifted the TV after screwing on the 2 tilt mounting arms, set it on the
top rail of the wall plate, then pushed the TV along the rail to it's wall center
place. Then there are clips that push up to engage the bottom rail to secure the TV
to the bracket. Tilting adjustmentis done by turning 2 screws at the top of the bracket.
The TV is very close to the wall and when tilted down the bottom is so close there is not
a lot of room for cable connection. Since I had installed a wire chase inside the wall
(to hide wires) before I installed the mount, I found I made a mistake on it's placement.

The chase opening should have been installed ether at the end of the wall bracket or at the top
because the Panny connections for HDMI and power are in the bottom half of the TV so in
order to put my HDMI cables into the Panny, I had to buy 90 degree HDMI adapters from Monoprice.
I could have avoided this problem had I located the chase NOT directly behind and on the bottom
side of the bracket. Since the HDMI cables have ferrite bulges near the ends, the bulk of the
ferrite needs a couple of more inches to be more easily plugged into the Panny. If ordering from
Monoprice, I would advise geting a couple of these adapters anyway.
