What’s Holding You Back?

You may have financial priorities that come before buying that new TV. You know, food, shelter, saving for retirement – the usual detractors of the “fun fund." Or you have room limitations affecting the size TV you are able to buy. For instance, you may be restricted because of your window placements, your fireplace, or other things in your room that just won’t allow for a larger sized TV.

Give the Illusion of a Bigger TV

Using a SANUS full-motion mount, you can actually pull your TV closer to you, thus giving you the effect of a larger TV. Because your viewing distance from the TV is reduced, you now have a bigger viewing angle and thus, a bigger TV.

The amount of extension a full-motion mount provides will impact how much bigger your screen appears. For example, a full-motion mount with a 10 inch extension, will bring your TV 10 inches closer to you. If you’re looking to create an even more dramatic “increase” in screen size, you can find full-motion mounts with even greater extension, like the SANUS full-motion OLF18 that adds up to 18 inches of extension. And when you’re done watching TV, you can easily return your TV to its original position flush against the wall.
