Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trish360 Perfect!
I purchased this TV mount for my breakfast nook. We just had our kitchen remodeled, and didn't want to install a TV in there. This multi-angle "arm" is perfect! I can pull the TV away from the wall, and then turn it so that it can be viewed while I'm cooking! We just push it back against the wall when we're done.
When I opened the box, I began to get concerned! There were SO MANY pieces! But, reading the directions, which weren't difficult, and taking my time, I installed it myself! You DO need a power drill and screwdriver! But, other than that, it was a breeze!
I am very happy with the product, and would highly recommend it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TVinBasementShop Good Value
Good quality and construction. My only objection is the yellow plastic clips (shown below in the picture) that secure the TV brace (attached to the back of the TV) to the extended arm bracket. They don't carry a significant amount of the weight, but act as a locking clamp to keep the TV bracket from falling away from the arm bracket. It would be better as a spring loaded metal clamp. The plastic clamps are a little difficult to unclip once mounted. But unless you are taking the TV down often, it shouldn't be an issue. My TV only weight 11 lbs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MasterSledder The price was right, but the mount is not that stable or secure, kind of scary!
The price is right for this mount but its not very good for larger TV's. I wanted to turn my TV 90 degrees fromt he wall but it does not extend far enough for that. Plus the TV does not hang straight when its extended and it pops loose from the mount on one side because its built with tiny plastic clips to hold a ton of weight. The mount itself is built from pretty strong thick steel, but the plastic retaining clip is hoakey. The price is right, but I put an older TV in it in my garage just in case it does not hold I wouldnt want a expensive TV in it. Yes I would recomend but be aware of what you are getting here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jengi Very sturdy
Very heavy duty and assembly wasn't difficult. Works really well in our sons room and I love how many positions the tv can be viewed with a simple turn.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BillFromKC Pretty decent mounting solution.
I bought this to mount my old TV set in the home office. We bought a larger AVF-branded mount for our new TV in the living room, and since that one worked so well I thought "surely their smaller ones work just as well for smaller TVs."
First, the good - it's solidly built, easy to install, easy to assemble, and easy to hang the TV set on.
The TV mounted on this is an Olevia 537 from around 2007. Weighing in without it's stand at around 45 lbs, it's definitely at the higher end of what this mount can handle. Luckily, the mount is more than strong enough so far, and that's with me moving the TV several times over the last several hours setting equipment up with it.
Installation and assembly was pretty simple. Once you locate a wall stud, make sure you get the wall bracket vertically straight on it. Mark your three holes, drill them out, and screw the bracket to the wall. Install the arm and mounting plate to the wall bracket. Put the TV plates on the backside of your TV, and mount. adjust for viewing angle and you're done.
Now for the not so good - assembly can be tricky thanks to the instructions, the motion arm is short for TVs at the upper end of the size range, the TV backplates may block some connections on smaller TVs, and there is no cable management.
The instructions do have some verbiage in them, but it's not very clear. It's more or less a large number of small pictograms. AVF would have been well-served to include either a larger, better set of instructions or a DVD with a video guide on how to put the mount together.
The motion arm (which is partially pre-assembled) is long enough to allow for decent rotation on smaller TV sets and monitors (I'd say anything 32 or under), but for those of us with 37" or larger TVs, don't count on your display being at a right angle to the wall. While this may be a problem for some, it's not really that much of a problem for me.
The two required backplates are quite large - about 9.5 inches tall - which means that some TVs and monitors with flush-mounted connections below where the VESA bolt-pattern is can experience interference with the connections by the back plate. If your connections are recessed (or inset) into the backside of your TV where all connections are parallel with the back of the TV set or monitor, you'll be fine; for those connectors that are flush against the back of the TV or monitor and stick straight out of the back (perpendicular with the back), you may be able to use the mount. Just a little buyer beware.
Cable management is one of those must-do things when you're mounting a TV, no matter if it's a flat, a tilt-only, a tilt and swivel, or a full motion mount. It becomes more important as your mount is capable of more motion. Cable management can prevent pinched wires, from HDMI cables to power cords. Unfortunately, this mount doesn't come with any sort of cable management and why I deducted a star. This alone is what I feel the mount's biggest drawback is. As you'll see on my mount, I used zip ties to hold my cable TV wire and power cords for both the TV and Comcast DTA in such a way that they don't get pinched.
All in all, I think this is a good mount. even with it's couple of minor drawbacks and it's lack of cable management, it's a lot more solid than other mounts in its price range, and I'd even go as far to say it's more solid than mounts costing 3 to 4 times as much. If you're looking to mount a TV or monitor in the 24-32 inch range, I'd say this is a fine choice as long as your connections won't cause issues. For TVs 37 or larger, I'd recommend going with a larger mount; while it may be more money, you'll end up with more flexibility when it comes to screen positioning.

At first it looked complicated, but this TV mount was easy to assemble and install. Located this in the kitchen and liked it so much I have ordered another unit for my bedroom. Although the pic doesn't actually show the TV Mount you can clearly see the finished look. No cords showing. The TV can swivel adjust as well as tilt adjust.

brackets were very easy to install, if you know how to look for the correct beams.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lincoln16 very good product
Although I was missing two parts from the box, the company was very quick to ship out the missing parts via overnight mail. Very easy to put together. The instructions could be a little clearer -- all pictures and no words, but I managed to figure it out. Love the product.
