A properly installed flat-screen TV not only ensures optimal viewing of your new TV but also helps you to enhance the décor of your room.
If you are considering an LCD or television mounting on the wall, keep these things in mind.
1. TV size – The first thing you'll notice when shopping for a wall mount is that there are different wall mounts for different TV sizes. There is a big difference in the size and weight of the 22" LCD compared to the 50" model. Hardware mounts provide more support for larger TVs, e.g. Connect to multiple pins instead of just one.
2. Wall Type – The flat panel display can be mounted on a variety of wall types. The most common type of wall is a wall with dowels. You will need a bobby pin finder to find the center of the bobby pin where you attach the TV.
3. LCD TV Wall Mount Type – There are many types of wall mounts to choose from.
The fixed wall mount has no other frills. Once your TV is plugged in, you can't move it at all.
The tilt stand offers additional flexibility by allowing you to tilt the TV up or down to ensure the correct viewing angle. Typically, the supports rotate about 5 degrees up and about 15 degrees down. It's a good choice for many of the large-screen flat-panel displays common in home theaters or living rooms.
