Looking for an inexpensive mount for a Samsung UN55ES7100

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for an inexpensive mount for a Samsung UN55ES7100. I want a tilt mount but I don't want to pay an arm and a leg. Can't seem to find any recommendations on the forums anywhere so I thought I'd ask.

Should about the quality of those mounts? They're so much cheaper than everything else .

Not at all. 99% of wall mounts in retail stores are marked up 75-90% of what they should actually retail for. Monoprice mounts are good. Rule of thumb with any wallmount, whether it's a $400 wall mount from best buy or a $20 wall mount from monoprice, BRING YOUR OWN BOLTS!

good luck!

Good advice. Anything I should consider before buying from one from Monoprice? There seem to be a ton to choose from.

Just a couple things from my recent experience:

1. I would definitely make sure it had a "fine tune" adjustment for leveling after hanging. The actual mount is often small. Once a larger TV is hung on it, any imperfections become magnified.
2. I would look for a "swing out" option. Some of the sanus mounts have an option where the TV can swing away from the wall after mounting. It makes it WAY easier to add new connections (e.g. plug in a new HDMI device).

These might not be compatible with "inexpensive", but would be well worth the cost in my humble opinion.

I go to a local home improvement store and buy ProMount brand products. It is much cheaper than anyplace I can find online and I love both articulating mounts I have bought.
I live in Wisconsin and buy them at Menard's.

There is no need for fine tune adjustments. Place mount on wall, mark holes using level on mount. Drill holes, attach bolts (here is where you can I guess move the mount a smidgen before super tightening the bolts). Once the bolts are tightened the mount should not move even with a TV on it.

I would advise against a swing out option. Those mounts are ugly and place the TV farther away from the wall than a non-swinging mount.

I would even advise against a tilting mount unless you are hanging the TV well above natural eye level (ideally center of TV should be at eye level). I got the 6523 monoprice non-tilting mount and it's great. Only $25 too! But as someone else mentioned, I had to go to Home Depot to buy bolts (the ones it came with were either too short or too long for my 55ES7100).
