When looking online & instores at wall mounts it was kind of hard to figure which one that I wanted to get (tilt, fixed or full motion). I decided to get this one because I did look at reviews along with seeing it in the store (bought it on 12-10-11). I bought it for the $99.99 and once I got it home I took out all of the parts out. My TV is a 40" Samsung that I bought at Bestbuy #sorry walmart#, but it had higher hertz rather than the 60 hz. This wall mount was perfect for the size of my TV. All I had to do was see which screw size fit into the back of my TV #which it comes with 3 different sizes#. I mounted the first two brackets vertically on the sides and then slide the other two brackets into the now attached brackets horizontally. My only problem was that I was going to mount my TV above my fireplace and my fireplace mantel didn't have a stud exactly in the middle. Which they say to screw the main part into the stud #it does come with wall anchors, but it didn't say anything about screwing it into drywall using the anchors, it talked about the concrete walls using anchors & I didn't feel comfortable having an expensive TV sitting there waiting to fall#. I wanted the TV to be center so I found the stud about 2-3 inches from being center then on the back side of the TV where the brackets where I moved the center over a little so that it was adjusted. I drilled the holes 3 inches deep and then used my rachet set to tighten the bolts which make sure it's level as well #vertically & horizontally#. You will probably need two-three people to hold the TV in place while setting it on the bracket and screwing the last screw on the back #which pull out the TV mount from the wall and this will be a lot easier to do#. My TV is now securly on the wall, level & looks great! I know this is long, but I hope this could help if your installing it yourself. I did have to do some math in order to get it center on the wall with the TV, bracket & mounts. It took me maybe 1.5-2 hours to get everything in place and hung, but take your time to do it right otherwise it could be an expensive broken toy. The next step for me is to hide all of the cords #an HDMI cable, TV Cable & Outlet plugins behind the TV#. Overall this seems to be a very sturdy product as it seems heavy when getting out of the box. The Tilt, Swivel & Full Motion of this product is great as almost anywhere in my living room I could have it directly infront of the viewer. Sorry about the "#" as they are supposed to be Parentheses, but it keeps showing up as the "#" when previewing it on walmarts website.
