Has anyone used this mount before?

http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-WMN35...02012&sr=8-1&keywords=samsung+mini+wall+mount

Had a homeowner provide this mount for a 65" tv and it took me about 45 minutes to figure out how the damn thing was supposed to work. The instructions might as well have been written in Klingon.

But after getting it all assembled and the tv mounted I will have to say it was pretty slick.
After installing it would you recommend it over a one piece bracket?
Seems like maybe a bit more layout time? But gives you more options for power and low volt boxes.

it would all depend on the size of the tv and if you like flat mount or tilt mount.

I generally install tilt mounts or full motion mounts, but for a flat mount I would definitely use it again. It has a kickstand thing that helps when connecting cables and such.

You would definitely need some 90 degree hdmi and coax adapters as well

We just did power for a 70" on a job ..homeowner already had his tv guy and the kid came in and mounted the tilt mount.. took him 10 min (on brick) slapped the set up there and split in his escalade. We had to take set back down, fish power and 3 hdmi cables in wall, finished boxes and re-set tv...guy just had to come back to set up reciever...:mad: and he sold him the tv.. I know its not typical to pull in their cables if not our job but it actually helped our job progress. It just makes me mad to see people hire these guys who are basically unnecessary middle men.

Your crazy. Do you think you are qualified to plug in a hdmi cable. Someone could be killed if you dont size the data rate properly. I have see hdmi cables blow a mans head clean off.
