This ematic full motion articulating tilt/swivel wall mount is incredibly sturdy and fairly easy to install. It arrived in a small package that came with a small level and an HDMI cable as well as brackets to add to the unit for larger TV's. The wall mount assembles in two parts. First you attach it to the wall using three large screws. Then you attach brackets to the back of your TV. You the have to remove the plate from the wall mount and attach it to the back of the TV. Then you put the plate back onto the wall mount (it hooks to hold it in place while you screw it together). Overall, installation wasn't that bad. It took my husband and I about forty-five minutes from start to finish and that included removing the base from our 32" TV.
The one thing you need to be very certain of when you attach the wall mount to the wall is that it's perfectly level. Any variation results in a tilted TV and it would mean removing it and resetting the screws to fix this. It's awkward to both hold it up and mount it, so have an extra pair of hands nearby.
Once everything is attached to the wall, you can enjoy your TV. The tilt and swivel are very stiff and require two hands to move it around. This is good in a way because it will hold its position. But I was a little nervous at how much pressure I had to put on the TV to get it to move. It has quite a large range, though I believe the range would be decreased the larger the TV. The TV we installed on it is a 32" model.
I have absolutely no worries that this unit is going to come loose or drop my TV, and it's nice because if we decide to upgrade to a larger TV model, this mount will accommodate up to a 55" TV. It's also nice because it doesn't take up a lot of space. You can't even tell it's there when the TV is on it. It gives it the appearance of floating.
In the end, if you are looking for a compact wall mount that will hold your TV sturdily in place, this is definitely a mount to consider. The bonus HDMI cable makes it really worth it. And, you'll get a free level to keep in your toolbox, too!
