This is a nice bracket, easy to install and it’s exactly what I wanted. It’s A little slow and a bit noisy, but worth it. The Remote control instructions are not very clear & hard to follow. Overall, seems to work fine so far.
Works, but very slowly. There aren’t a lot of manufacturers or models to choose from though. The constant bright red light that indicates that it is powered, is in full view and is annoying. This manufacturer offers two models. I bought the one for “larger” TVs. I’m skeptical that the extra money, appropriately $100, is worth it. Both models accommodated my tv’s mounting pattern. From images, it looks to be exactly the same mechanism with different a mounting bracket.
I originally ordered this product because I have a small bedroom and I was hoping to save some wall space by having this installed in my ceiling. I paid 250 for the unit and then paid $150 for it to be professionally installed, The moment the installer walked into my home and saw the unit he told me that this most likely wouldn’t be properly installed. He looked at my bedroom where I wanted to place the unit and told me that due to the design of the mount that attaches to the wall only half of it would be installed in the stud. The other half would be installed directly into the drywall. Due to the nature of this motorized mount moving up and down regularly the installer warned me that overtime it could cause my ceiling to crack unless I went into my crawlspace and reinforced the studs where I wanted to mount this unit. The installer told me specifically that His company had warned Amazon multiple times that these units were not easily installed and needed specific Requirements in order to be installed properly without damaging the Home in the future. I then went to return the unit and when I chose the option that the item was no longer needed I was preemptively charged for its return. Now I wanted this mount, I was under the assumption from the listing that it would fit my home. I Went back and chose defective item/did not work because this item did not work for me and I was not charged for shipping. I quickly got a message from VIVO asking what about the item was defective and I explained the situation, they then tried to give me a shipping label asking me to pay or have the cost deducted from my refund. At that point I had already returned it through Amazon and was not charged for shipping but if I had waited Vivo would’ve expected me to pay for return shipping when the item didn’t fit My Home through no fault of my own.I will not be buying another product from this company again. And if you buy this for a regular home be prepared to have the installer tell you that it can’t be installed without future damage unless you know how to prep your home ahead of time.
I love this TV mount! It is my birthday present this year. I've gotten quite a few "really good" birthday presents but this beats them all!My husband and I get to watch TV in bed, it feels like the most comfortable movie theater. The angle is so much better than any wall mount.My husband put 2"x4"s to reinforce our ceiling just to be safe.
Good instructions. Just make sure you know where bottom of your tv will be before deciding final location. I laid my mount on a bed and calculated where bottom of tv would be and then mounted it to ceiling the correct distance from the wall.
