I have a 5010 mounted in the theater in our office.. but we have an industrial size HVAC for the building that when it's on vibrates the wall thus makes a bouncing image on the projector.

It's mounted about 25' back! throwing a 200" image on dynamic, and it looks pretty damn good btw.. it's an amazing dedicated theater built by the previous tenant that we luckily inherited.

We currently have it mounted to the wall with this monoprice mount

We didn't mount from the ceiling since it's acoustically treated paneling & didn't want to cut into it.

I read other threads & most have solutions for ceiling mounts with chief or peerless vibration isolation stuff (btw, do they work?)

But I didn't see any wall mount solutions. Should I trash the monoprice and get something else?

Try searching for "Ceiling Vibration Isolator" and "projector ceiling mount shock absorber" in your choice of search engines.

Try making some soft rubber washers to separate the mount from making direct contact with the ceiling and the fasteners.
