    Is wall mounting TV bad?

    What’s the difference between a cheap and expensive TV Mount?

    You also don’t want a mount that flexes when a TV is on it, something you find with cheaper mounts.

    What’s the difference between tilting and fixed mount TVs?

    A tilting mount allows you to get an arm behind the TV to plug in cables, while a fixed mount might require you to take the TV off the wall. Most TVs, especially 50-inch and larger models, have wide enough viewing angles that allow you to clearly see the picture from well off to the side.

    How big of a mount do I need for my TV?

    With a standard flat mount, typically you have to handle the wiring before you mount the TV to the wall, a restriction that can make installation difficult. Manual full-motion mounts also have their advantages. These mounts can extend the TV off the wall, usually in the range of 15 to 30 inches, and can pivot the screen to either side.
