Anyone own it? looks cheap, but also is cheap, and very light. I will be hanging my projector from the ceiling that has 1/2 drywall (no joist to drill into) .... The universal mount I have right now weighs more then my 4805 projector, and get worried about all that weight above my head.
If that one is to silly, which is lighter of the other two affordable options.... NPL or PMS, neither say how much the mount itself weighs...
Wow, for that price, you might as well buy it and try it. If it isn't stable enough, throw it in the trash and try again.
On the other hand, I'm not comfortable hanging a projector from drywall, even with the anchors. It will probably work, and even if it does break loose, chances are the cables will save it from falling on the floor (not the HDMI cable, though).
I used the Mountdirect NPL mount to mount mine (earlier this week), using the 11" extension. I reinforced the ceiling by screwing some MDL into the ceiling joists above the drywall - easy to do in this case because it was easily accessed from the attic. The mount is heavy-duty, and solid as a rock - and heavy. Looks good too - I've got power, HDMI and component video cables all completely hidden in the pole. I'd highly recommend it.
