I mounted my new HS10 today using the Peerless SNY1, and can report that this mount does *not* fit the HS10 without modification. The triangle pattern of mounting screws is reversed between the VW10HT family and the HS10. On the HS10, there is one screw in front and two in the rear; on the others, there are two screws in front, one in the rear. The triangles are the exact same dimensions, just inverted. After some head-scratching, I made a pattern and drilled new holes in the mounting plate, and it works okay. It would fit better with the front corners of the mounting plate cut off, as these are riding on the projector foot.
Mounting the SNY1 plate as-is on the HS10 would make the release mechanism work backwards -- you'd have to push back rather than pull to release the projector from the base unit. More importantly, though, it would partially cover the air intake on the bottom of the projector.
Having said all that, I'm happy with the mount. The price was right (at least compared to the other non-DIY mounts out there), and the re-drilling only took a few minutes with a drill press.

Hmmm...I read on this forum that the SNY1 worked perfectly with the HS10, which is why I ordered one. In fact, I seem to remember that one of the first HS10 users actually has this mount in service. Is anyone using this mount with an HS10?
