The mount was very well made & sturdy. I had no problems mounting it at all. You should be mechanically inclined if not, get somebody who is.You must also have a good studfinder to ensure that you get the studs on center. It's very easy to mount the brackets on the tv wrong, so you need to pay extra attention when you get to this part..!! Even if your tv is not on the screen configuration chart odds are that it'll still work.
Great buy for the price.It holds my 32" LCD which weighs a 100lbs with no problem. Plus the security mounting screws are a nice touch.
Good Luck Everyone...Hope this helps...!!!
I bought this wall mount over a year ago and I'm very happy with it. I've moved twice with it and it's in perfect condition. As the previous reviewer said it's well made and sturdy. I had it mounted by a handy-man just because I didn't have tools at the time, but all you need is a drill and screwdriver. All the necessary hardware comes with the mount. You don't have to worry about mounting it *exactly* in the center of where you want it because the tv easily slides left and right once it's mounted. I put it over my fireplace and after it was mounted safely on the studs, I nudged the TV into the center and it looked great. Adjusting the angle is really easy. My tv is 36" but you can go up to 50" with this mount. I'd definitely feel safe mounting a larger tv on it.
