If you’re mounting on a wall, be sure you attach the screen to a wall stud. That’s the more solid part of the wall, which usually alternates with less sturdy wallboards. These sections are not really safe for attaching a heavy item like a plasma screen. Bear in mind that the distance between wall studs can vary from home to home, so double-check yours will fit your screen. Some plasma mounts even hang from the ceiling, which can look amazing, But you’ll need to be sure you attach it to a sturdy ceiling joist to avoid the costly and dangerous disaster of an unsecure mounting, There’s a bit more planning with a ceiling mount as you’ll need to find the best height for the screen, but it can mean the screen is visible across a wider angle, which is great if you have a large family. However, with a ceiling mount, you’ll usually need a set-up where a single cable runs to the screen, and all the connections are in a separate box.
