Stable TV Wall Mount, but lacking in hardware8/22/2010
You get what you pay for. I purchased this wall mount bracket for considerably less than I could have purchased another wall mount. The mounting plate and brackets are solid steel, and I have no concerns about them being able to support my 42" LCD TV. Installation, however, was another matter. None of the included bolts were the right size for my TV, so I had to go to the hardware store to purchase the right size. For the plate, I put 2 screws into a wall stud, but the wall anchors for the other screws were worthless, so I made another trip to the hardware store. Additionally, the included washers were the wrong size, so I had to purchase more of those as well. And finally, the bolts that secure the brackets to the mounting plate were angled in such a way that the brackets wouldn't sit flush against the plate. I was able to bend the metal tabs to get a flush fit, but the engineering should have been better so that such an action wasn't necessary. Now that it's up, I'm reasonably happy with it, but better engineering would have been preferred.
