Most wall studs are 16" on center, but non-load bearing walls and some 2"x6" walls are allowed to be 24" on center. The mounting bracket that comes with this unit is only 20.5" wide and in the room where I wanted to mount the TV, the studs were 24" apart. The unit is very nice but I can't believe they did not include a wider mounting bracket. I have another cheap mounting bracket in another room that was 28" wide. If you have studs that are 16" apart, this is a 5-star unit, but for me, I either have to open the wall and add another stud or cross-braces, or I have to nail a pair of 24"-length boards (2"x4"s or 2"x6"s) between the two studs and mount the bracket to the boards. I can't believe that Siig did not include wider mounting brackets.
