mounting brackets for LCD/Plasma..

I'm looking at a tilting LCD mount. Why are the price ranges so drastic? Is it ease of installation? the knob to make it tilt-ease of use?

There are many off-shore imitations of domestic mounts that are made for the professional AV industry. Beware of the low cost products. You can't go wrong with a company like Peerless, that has mounts for many manufacturers, and they're made to exacting tolerances.

I got the $100 tilting mount at Costco and I think I could hang my CAR on the wall with it. The mount weighs more than the TV I attached to it. I forget the brand, but damn if it's not the sturdiest thing in my whole house...

I use a cheap $20 from Ikea - swivel and tilt. But it just has my 15" monitor on it. I presume you're talking about the larger TV ones...

damn..that is pretty cool! I wasn't one for a telescoping mount, but the fact that she curled it around the corner so you can watch in the living room or the kitchen seemed pretty sweet.

Hmm.. now all i need to do is build my house around the tv where this scenario would work out! haha

I checked out bestbuy geek squad. $300 to get it done (including shipping and setup of the surround)..thing is, I already brought it home and already know how to set it all up.

It shouldn't be any more difficult that this chinup bar i installed in my kitchen. Loads of fun with the clowns that come over and drink beer and try to swing on it. Oh.. and it doubles up as a drying rack.
