I wanted to put my tv above the fireplace but I didn’t want to drill into the wall and my mantle is too narrow for the base on the tv. This was the perfect solution.
I am a traveling mobile creator and this was a perfect way to mount my new 34 inch wide view monitor! Very stable and it is holding up well while going down the road in the RV. I feel safe and secure now that I know my monitor will not go flying when I hit the brakes!
Seems very sturdy. I'm only mounting a 32 inch TV. Using it outside with a covered TV. There is a set screw that prevents a full 180 swivel, but if you pull it out...
Installed onto an existing articulated shelf that previously held a smaller TV. New TV is a 32-inch Samsung M4500.Seems pretty sturdy. Can't comment on the bolts/screws provided, as I bolted it the steel shelf using aircraft-grade hardware and the TV came with the right screws to attach the VESA adaptor plate. The little trim disk on the shaft does a nice job of making the installation look nice and clean.A couple of small points. First, the VESA plate actually blocked some of the connections for the TV...specifically, the component video and the digital audio output. It didn't affect my installation, because I'm not using those features. Still, the "scooped" sides of the VESA plate could probably stand to be a bit deeper. I have a bandsaw, and could have modified the part if I had cared.Second, there's a neat little cable pass-through down the center of the vertical shaft. Neat feature, but for my Samsung, the HDMI and power connections were near the right edge of the TV, so the feature was wasted.Third, I would have loved to have a dimensioned drawing of the mounting base, showing the spacing of the holes. Digging around in the Q&A, it turned out to be 4.9" in diameter, with the holes on a square 2.7" per side. Still, it would have saved me some work if it had been included in the instructions or even available online. The overall dimensions of the unit are on the outside of the box, but not the details of the mounting plate.THAT said, it won't affect most of you, who will just plop the thing into position and drill through the holes...The unit has a fixed height, which is probably fine for most applications, but it did put the bottom of my relatively small TV five inches above the shelf. A bit taller than I wanted, since the articulated shelf is already five feet above the floor. But then, did I mention I own a bandsaw? :-)Good unit for the price, but I would have been happy to spend $5 or $10 more for a unit that gave me some height flexibility.
It is a very sturdy stand. The only bad thing about it is it covers some of the connection points (av, and most of the plug). Atleast i dont use the av plugs but had to put the ac plug in then mount the stand (which was easy enough).
