Mount

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I bought a wall mount for a 58" tv. The mount specs say it's for tvs from 42" to 63". I recently purchased a Vizio 80". It has a 400mm hole pattern. And it weighs less than the 58" tv I have now. If the mounting bracket fits on the tv, is there any reason why I couldn't use the existing mount? Why do they say it's for tvs up to 63"?

Most of these mounts were designed before 70 & 80" were common. Go by the weight. My 70" Vizio is on a mount for up to 60" and 135 lbs but weighs 75 lbs and it's been fine

I agree. The weight is what you should go by. I'm using a 2007 era monoprice mount that is rated for up to 175 pounds but states "Up to 60 inch TVs". This mount is rock solid with my Vizio 70 on board.

 

BTW, indept, how is your 70" Vizio 75 pounds???eek.gif

 

Mine, according to the specs weighs 86 lb.

 

 

Weight
Net With Stand: 97.00 lbs

Gross: 116.84 lbs

I toook the Vizo logo off with a grinder, Just Joking, My 70 is an E series which is on a swivel mount, I do have an M551D which is on a regular tilt mount.
