Looking to move the TV off a console table and onto the wall.

I think I've got it down to either an OmniMount UCLX-B or a Sanus VMDD26B.

Anyone happen to have either of these?  Other recommendations?

LOL.  You know, you're right.  Screw droppin' more cash on something that just holds your TV.  I'll just get the wife to do it.

Maybe you should check out TVMounts.com like the ad at the bottom of the page says.

This reminds me of the boy who cried wolf.

Or am I thinking of the time Otis saved the town by sticking his finger in the dyke?

Fuck if I know, I'm drunk and senile.

I wouldn't be so sure AJ's giving up on this.

This would be a rear mount, correct?

I rest my case.

I know it's pretty important to get a quality wall mount for something as expensive and important as a flat panel TV, but I bought one of these because of the price and the reviews on the site and I couldn't be happier. I put it on the wall and it held all 230 pounds of me, so my 58" 100+ pound TV should be OK. Granted I was only looking for one of the tilting one and not one of the full motion mounts, but take a look to see if they have what you want. Prices are great, but it will cost about 20 bucks for shipping (I'm guessing you'll probably pay this on your mounts too if you order them online).

I bought this one for use on my Samsung PN58B860 TV:

I buy all of my cables and stuff from Monoprice.  I don't think you can buy items of that quality muc cheaper elsewhere.

I have no idea how much thos mounts usually are, but those prices seem crazy inexpensive.

Yeah, this.^^^

I've bought a ton of stuff from monoprice.  Have done so for years.  Cables, wiring, stands, cleaners, you name it.

For something that's gonna hold my TV though, I'm leery of going with one their products.  Yeah, it might save me a couple hundy, but the consequences of the risk aren't worth it, IMO.

AJ - Search for your TV on AVS and see what mounts are being used, or which ones are liked best.

Might save a couple hundy you could put towards a DTV whole home upgrade   Wink

I can't believe these two mounts wouldn't be more than sufficient - 200lb and 300 lb capacity for < $100

Minimum size for the 2nd link is 52 inches.  Don't recall what size the Laws are sporting.

I hear you and if I hadn't actually tried it myself, I wouldn't even recommend it. I literally hung from the mount before I trusted it to hold my TV though and it was solid. Either way, decision is yours, but I'm really happy with my $30 one.

AJ - What's the latest on your wall mount choice?

Leaning towards the OmniMount UCL-XB.



Just waiting to hear back from a rep as to whether this particular mount gives me any play room to center the TV on a stretch of wall where there aren't two 16" OC studs perfectly centered within that space.  Basically, how much wiggle room does the wall plate give me to shift it in either direction before I install the mounting arm.

Amazon has 'em at about half the cost they were a year and change ago.  Still pricey, but it's one of the better ones out there.  Hopefully, they get back to me ASAP as I'd like to install it and connect my home theatre speakers before the SB.
