TV stands > OK to go above the size specs?

I got a stand like this from Costco ~6 years ago. Brand is Whalen, I think? It says it's for "TVs up to 60 inches and 130 pounds". For those 6 years I've been hanging a 60" plasma that's 66 pounds.

I might be upgrading to a 65", and I'm sure that will be fine (Vizio P-Series Quantum X, only weighs 54 pounds).

But I'm also considering the 75" model. The weight is good (79 pounds), but am I running the risk of creating too much strain/torque?

A 75" TV nowadays is certainly lighter and thinner than they were 6-7 years ago, so maybe I shouldn't worry as long as it's not too heavy?

Am I over-thinking this?

I don't think you'll have any problem mounting a current 75" TV using a mount which held an earlier 65" model. Just make sure the VESA mount size is the same as the TV you're purchasing and the weight of the new TV is less than the mounts MAX.

I don't see a problem with mounting a larger TV on that stand as long as it's under the weight limit.

No worries there. It's the kind of stand with two hooks that attach to the VESA mounts on the TV, and there are lots of holes to use. Not exactly like this, but similar.
