Outstanding mount. Purchased after reviewing dozens of choices at all price points. This mount went up easily and customer support is outstanding. 15 degree tilt provides more then enough flexibility. This mount is a winner. Trusted manufacturer. 2.5" clearance between wall and TV allows plenty of space to accommodate cables, plugs, etc. Much better then the 1" or 1.5 " space offered by some. The only downside is the width of the back plate. It certainly could be wider to better handle the expanse of 16" center studs in some installation situations which are not typical or may not be 16" on center, as in over some fireplaces due to exhaust pipes etc. We mounted my unit over a gas fireplace which was framed in behind drywall. This section, in the center, did not have a center stud running up to the peak of the ceiling at that point of installation. Thus our studs at point of install were 32" apart at center point. Bear in mind the back plate to this particular unit is only 25.6 inches wide. We were able to hit two studs in my installation only after moving the frame over to the extreme right and then hoping we could still center the supports back to the left for balanced installation. We made it but barely. My son has a competitors unit which was wider and allowed him to better align his unit in the center over his fireplace and still hit the required two studs easily. Keep this in mind when ordering and plan accordingly. Aside from that, this was a strong, inexpensive, compact unit suitable for most installs. For any "a-typical" installs, consider a unit with a wider back plate.
