Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sortofhandy Good solid product
This is a heavy gauge wall mount with obvious quality finish. Packaging and instructions very nice. All possible needed hardware for VESA compatible TV's included. With TV mounted, there is not enough room to use the Allen wrench to tighten at a specific tilt angle, so I suggest you hang it, mark the bracket with a pencil at the desired tilt, take the TV down, and then tighten the bracket. Not a problem, just plan on this step. Also suggest attaching hdmi and other cables prior to hanging just to make it easier. I will buy this product again for another room.

Would of been a nice product if the level and stud finder worked . Stud finder batteries were leaking acid rendering it useless. Level was off ..ending up installing and adjusting mount several times just to realize it was the level that was off . Turned a simple job into a mission. Suggest buying a separate level just to double check the first time . Or save your money and buy the cheaper version

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 EXCELLENT!!! DON'T HESITATE IF HAVE A VERY LARGE TV
I have FOUR 65" Panasonic Plasmas. I bought two of these to try out, and had to return many others. IT CAN MOUNT ONTO 3 STUDS FOR BETTER CENTERING OPTIONS. THE PRICE IN JAN 2013 WAS CHEAPER THAN AMAZON.
THE ONLY NEGATIVES:
IMMEDIATELY TAKE THE SELF LEVEL OUT W/ A SCREWDRIVER.. IT IS USELESS
THE ALLEN SOCKET TO LOCK THE TILT.. THEY ARE HARD TO TIGHTEN DUE TO TIGHT SPACE AND NEED TIGHTENING AFTER 10 SWIVELS OF MOVEMENTS.. IF YOU LEAVE THE TV IN ONE POSITION, NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.. IF YOU SWIVEL THE TV UP AND DOWN ALOT.. BUY AN "ALLEN WRENCH KIT WHERE THEY FOLD OUT (LIKE A BIKERS SET)".. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO TIGHTEN FIRMLY W/ GOOD TORQUE.. REGULAR ALLEN WRENCHES WON'T FIT INTO SUCH TIGHT SPACE BACK THERE W/ ENOUGH TORQUE

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BobW Easy to put up. Easy to mount the TV.
The Home Depot website says up to 85". . The manufacturer website says up 85". The box says up to 65". The box also says up to 200 lbs. my TV is less than half that, so I went with it.
The pictures in the instructions aren't very clear. Don't forget the washers. The drill bit sizes are in metric. If in doubt, choose the smaller bit.
It looks good. I need to do something about cable management.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ladytank Great tilt mount
We purchased 2 of this tv mount.
Tilt was really easy to assemble. We have a 65" Plasma 135lb. This tilt holds the tv easily
Of course the price was great for the product I received.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChuckinSA Perfect for large and heavy TV
Not only did I get exactly what was discribed in the information online, but it was exactly what I needed. Installation instructions wer very clear and easy to follow. The included stud finder worked like a charm. Although I'm very handy around the house, even a novice could install this properly the first time without a hitch. This was a super price, and couldn't have been better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Great but not perfect
First to avoid any confusion, I confirmed through Level mount that this will support, as stated up to an 85in flat panel TV and 200LBS. Which was questionable at first due to the product itself stating only up to 65in and thus the call to Level Mount.
Second was actually the ease of mounting AFTER confirming exactly where the MIDDLE of your studs are. I do 95% of my own work so that wasn't a problem for me. It took approximately 25 minutes total to mount. It took US about an hour to place the 80in Sharp and get it centered perfectly (Im a perfectionist, If I didn't care it would have taken 5 minutes).
Third was getting the angle right due to my entertainment stand with center channel speaker on top. This is where the primary issue with this mount is. Due to the flat panels getting bigger and lighter they do not technically have to redesign the mounts. Which makes sense, however if you do have an 66 - 85in TV your going to have an almost impossible time using the "lock" bolts to keep it at the angle you want. Simply because you cant reach them. Either because of height (arm length), size of arms (pushes tv higher than you want) which pretty much eliminates that tilt feature. But don't worry. It was actually a very easy fix for me. First and foremost for those of you who aren't aware, ALL TVs have some type of active/passive heat dissipation apparatus and vents. DO NOT COVER them up with this solution. We used a roll (75% used) of blue 2in wide painters tape to get the exact angle. It was placed directly in the lower middle out of sight. I suppose any other semi soft item would work too. I don't know that a harder item wouldn't lead to drywall damage due to weight and pressure?
Finally, after its all said and done, this mounts in need of a redesign issue was cheap and easy to overcome. Since Home Depot has the absolute best price (at this time) it wasn't something I would stress over. Looks great and functions pretty much like it was designed to. So If your concerns weren't addressed here in this review please feel free to contact Level Mount directly as they were very professional and reassuring.
