From mounting your TV to cord concealment and calibration, here’s how to install HDTV. You’ve made the big decision to buy a new flat panel TV, and the next big decision is whether to use a stand or mount it.
LCD and Plasma televisions aren’t cheap. There’s no getting around that fact. If you’ve just spent a small fortune on a new one the last thing you’d want is to put it in harm’s way on a stand where a careless friend or relative could stumble into it and knock it over, or even spill a drink over it! An LCD wall bracket could provide an excellent solution in allowing you to mount your television set high and out of reach of most everyday dangers. Before you start shopping around though, read this handy guide about what to look for in your quest to find the best LCD brackets.
I bought a Videosecu mp501B TV wall mount kit to mount 55″ TV for about 60 pounds. I plan to install it on a sturdy wooden TV stand with a flat panel(Crate& Barrel). I am seeking some inputs from users if this is doable and any tips to follow. If I follow standard wooden wall mount, will that be sufficient?
In most cases, extremely light objects can be handled with products as simple as double-sided velcro tape. Moving up to heavier objects, the situation becomes more complex. Shelving, whitegoods (dryers, washing machines) and of course, televisions fall into this category.
Upon purchasing a Plasma TV, finding a place for it is always the next problem. Of course, it’s pretty obvious that the bedroom or the living area needs it. But today, you have the freedom to place a TV set wherever you want or feel the need to. An LCD TV wall mount installation can help you do that. TV wall mounts let you make use of spaces that are unusual but may still provide optimal viewing.
I want to mount my 52″ LCD that weighs 60 lbs on one of those wall mounts that can extend up to 26 inches. Can the wall mount stay in an extended position of 24 inches?
My husband and I just ordered this TV and have decided we’d like to wall mount it (we have a 16 month old and don’t want him to “play” with the tv if it’s on a stand within his reach). I think we might want some type of a swivel feature, as we have a set of french doors at the right of our room, so we may need to angle the tv a few degrees to the left and also a few degrees towards the floor (since it will be higher than it would be on a stand).
I need to mount my new TV so I’m looking to learn about your experiences, good and bad, with mounting flat panel HDTV’s. We’re getting a 46″ TV in Blu-Ray player combo package from Best Buy, and we’re wondering about what others have learned about the best ways to mount my new flat panel TV. Any experience/advice, where-to-buy knowledge, best prices, worst experiences… All would be appreciated.
In my opinion, pricing will be very similar between Amazon and eBay – eBay might be a little cheaper but the sellers on Amazon seem to be more trustworthy. You might get a simple little flush wall mount for the 22″ for even less than you mentioned above. I got one from a local retailer for $20 that would probably work. Chances are, the same mount on Amazon would be under 10 bucks. For the 40″, you’ll probably need to spend a bit more.
