Some years back I had a 55" Panasonic plasma wall mounted on a nice double scissor mount. Pulled out and swiveled both ways. Then I got the Panasonic 58", used the same mount and I started hearing creaking behind the wall. My house was built in the late 50's. I was afraid it would pull the studs right through the sheetrock. That was the last time I wall mounted. Took it down, gave the mount away to a friend, and have used a stand ever since. When I got my Samsung 75", it's quite light, but I now view it longwise across the room and have a big bay window behind it. My current room (am building a new room that will be 23x23) is 23x12 and I felt it was too close for the sound system, etc. to be viewing from about 11 feet away.
I am a believer in wall mounting, however, I feel it's one of the things that made flat panels have that cool wow factor from day 1.
