How To Choose a LCD TV Wall Mount - Articles Surfing
You have a new LCD TV that you want to mount on the wall. But how do you know what is the best mount for your purposes? Following are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for a LCD TV wall mount.
At one time, each TV and mount manufacture used their own set ups, so it was much more difficult to figure out what mount went with what TV. Today, however, everybody has agreed on a basic setup and this allows the purchase of universal TV mounts. This not only saves time and money, but the holes that are predrilled in the back of the TV make instillation far less tricky than it used to be.
When you open the box for your run of the mill universal TV wall mount kit, you will find a wall plate that attaches to the wall and brackets that go on the back of the TV. The brackets are made to fit the holes that have been pre drilled into the back of the TV display.
Now, even though the kit is universal in its hardware, there are options available that you are going to want to look at before you buy one. For instance, if you are looking for the cleanest overall look, go with the standard wall mount. This will keep the TV within one inch of the wall. However, with this type, you cannot tilt the TV at all so you will have to be careful of where it is mounted, taking into account where you want the prime viewing area to be.
If you are thinking you may want to change the angle of the TV, then you are going to want a tilt mount. The style is close to the other model, but the TV is held further from the wall. This extra space allows the display to be tilted. The degree of tilt varies, depending on the model and manufacture of the mount.
If you opt for the tilt design you will need to consider how the mount moves. Some will move with just your hand power because it moves on a ratchet system. Other models require a tool to be used to move the angle of the TV. If you think you will be moving the display often, it may be worth the extra expense to guy the ratchet system for ease and convince of the movement.
If you prefer to be able to move around the room and not sit on the same spot of the couch all the time, you may want to opt for a wall mount that allows the TV to be pulled away from the all and tilted and swiveled for almost unlimited positions. These are called articulating wall mounts.
So, when you are looking at TV wall brackets such as the ones displayed at http://www.tv-wall-brackets.co.uk, be sure you consider all the areas the TV will be viewed from so you can get the one that works best for you.
