    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome and worth it It's almost been a year since I bought this tv wall mount and I would buy it again if I had a second chance. Simply buy it for the 18.97" of space it gives you between your wall and your tv. It takes the guess work out of any and all tv hookups befind the tv.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent and easy to install (2 person) Works great. Single stud, fit my LG. A little pricey but great quality is the reason for this. Joints are a little stiff and require two hands. Very sleek and really upgraded my setup to baller status!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wall mounting 50" Vizio tv I received this wall mount as a Christmas gift from my Dad. The mount was put together by me and a friend and went together really well. The included stud finder did not work very well for me, but I was going through insulation in the wall so that might've been why. However the biggest drawback to this wall mount as someone mentioned earlier was the spacer length. The spacers were too big for me to attach through the washer and the bracket and go into the tv. My friend and I had to cut the spacers in half to be able to thread the screw far enough into the tv for it to fit. Overall looks very nice in the corner and seems to be holding fine. I put the value at average because I'm not sure what the price on it was since it was a Christmas gift, I would not be willing to spend much over $150. The tools the box says are required are also not all required. I tried to upload a picture but the uploader was not working.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mounting 46" Sony Bravia Overall good flexibility in positioning. Easy to follow instructions. Only wish they included more spacer length options. The enclosed ones don't account for the washer and bracket thickness so the M6 screws are too short.by 2 to 3 mm

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overkill for 40" Toshiba Bought a 40" Toshiba at Best Buy and they recommended this mount. The tv's mounting holes are not centered - they are located lower the tv. This causes the back of the Sanus hardware to protrude from the bottom of the TV when mounted . It is distracting and ruins the "seemless" look advertised by Sanus. Really, while this mount is well build, it is overkill for the Toshiba 40" tv.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from SANUS VMF518 faults This mount should does not tilt and never stays level. I don't like the fact only one screw controls most, if not all, functions. I don't recomentd this full-motion mount; you're better off purchasing a swivel-only wall mount. Hopefully this type of mount will remail level and still have the option to turn. Tilt is NOT a good function for this mount.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not work well with Sony 48" W600B Bought the tv and mount from best buy. The tv's mounting holes are not centered, they are lower on the tv. The back of the Sanus hardware sticks out from the bottom of the TV when mounted . Completely ruins the "seemless" look advertised by Sanus.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT FOR VIZIO Purchased mount from Best Buy located 90 miles from my home. At no time was I advised or did I notice anywhere on the box that mount was not compatible with Vizio. Very disappointed that I will now have to make a trip back to Best Buy for a refund. Wish there was an easier fix.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Enough Tilt Said it was full motion. I have to mount this TV high, as it is in the dining area and we need to get it out of the way. Only seems to tilt a few degrees. Outside of that it was easy to hook to the tv and easy to install. Directions were better than average. DID NOT LIKE THE REGISTRATION POCEDURE!! Why do I have to create an "account" and make a long involved password. All I want to do is register the product for warrentee purposes

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very disappointing This mount is of poor quality the Mount has one screw that controls everything which the screw easy strips there should be a knob that is more user friendly like the cheaper models. Overall not impressed should be much better quality for the cost you're not getting your moneys worth. Will not buy again.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mount doesn't fit all 40" tvs We bought this mount at the recommendation of Best Buy to fit our 40" Vizio TV. Unfortunately, nothing on the box or in the manual says it's incompatible with Vizio tv. We didn't learn this until we called Sanus today. This is very disappointing and will be the last time we purchase a Sanus product. We only hope that we can get our money back from Best Buy because Sanus can't help is since they don't make full motion mounts compatible with our tv.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't fit my Vizio 40" TV I purchased this at Best buy by the recommendation of the sales person. I wanted a mount that would allow the TV to swing out from the wall at a 90 degrees. But when I went to mount my Vizio E400i B2 TV to the bracket, I found the side to side was OK but the top rail would not get close enough to the bottom rail. So I mounted it to the two screws used to mount the TV base but again it did not line up with the holes in the mounts vertical bracket. I ended up drilling and tapping my own holes. Then I had to saw off the bottom of the bracket that hung down three inches below the TV. Although this was recommended for a 40 - 50 inch TV I think it was not sized correctly. If it was not an hour each way to the dealer that sold it to me I would have returned it. This should not be sold with the Vizio TV.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great - Easy Install My installation was a snap and the directions were simplistic and straight forward. If i had to complain about anything it was the stud finder that came with the product. I don't think it was me but i could get a sense that the magnet was picking up any of the drywall screws. I tired it for about 2 minutes and and then I went and got my real stud finder. Other then that it went up great and the television locked on to the mounting bracket with first try.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks Like a Solid Mount One early issue - tilt works OK as does full motion feature ... but when you find your position it is too easy to knock it from horizontal position. Would be nice if there was a set screw or something to fix it in horizontal mode

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Product We purchased the Sanus VMF518-B1 to mount our Vizio 50" LCD TV above the fireplace. Mounting was actually fairly easy. Our only complaint is that it is very touchy as far as getting the television to stay level. Once level it is fine. But when movong the TV out to various angles, it just will not stay level. I have tightened the tension screw to various torques but it does not want to hold level. So when watching at a 75 degree angle, we just have to put up with the tilted screen. Then moving it back to its everday position I have to mess with it a few minutes until it holds level again. But overall it is a solid product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding This product far exceeded my every expectation. Assembly and mounting were easy and uneventful. Sturdiness is impressive. Angles of viewing are varied and useful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd SANUS Mount - Wouldn't choose any other So, I mounted my living room. Had to mount my office. Mounted a 40" Samsung. No problems...but if I had coaxial, I may have needed a 90 connector, because the mount bar went directly over the input on the tv. But, I'm all HDMI, so it's good. The other reviews complain about the tilt/tension screw. I'd have to agree. But, it's not a big deal for me. I mean, I couldn't get the tv to tilt AT ALL when I first mounted it. Even after unscrewing the tension screw. But, I used a little WD40 and just loosened the allen head screw on the inside of the mount plate...just a smidge...and the tilt works now. The TENSION SCREW does lock the tilt, but it DOES NOT lock the rotation. So, if you move the TV, you may need to have a small level handy to level it. But, it's no big deal. You can eye-ball it. And when you get it back right, it stays. It's just sensitive, that's all. Not a bad thing. The fingertip-rotate is as advertised. The fingertip-tilt could be easier. The tilt on my first Sanus mount was "fingertip tilt." This mount is GREAT though. $150 is worth it. Could've gotten something cheaper at Home Depot or Amazon, but these mounts are quality and they LOOK GOOD on the wall by themselves. Plus, all the tools, templates, screw sizes, washers, spacers, stud finders, levels ARE INCLUDED. Everything you need. You'd be IN-SANUS to buy anything else.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, but a little expensive The instructions in the installation manual were good and easy to follow. After mounting the bracket and TV we couldn't get the TV not to tilt. Tried adjusting the tension screw and found it unmovable. Called the company and were told it was overtightened in manufacturing and likely broken. They were accommodating and sent a new bracket overnight. Installed the new bracket and adjusted the tension screw and it works well. We followed the instruction manual closely, but in the end had multiple bolts and washers left over. The design is massive and quality of the product seems to be well made.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tension screw didn't work We had to buy a second product and replace the arm on the first one. The first one would not sit level it just kept spinning. Tightening the tension screw would not work. Not a big deal because Best Buy took back a set and only charged us once it was just a hassle getting the whole thing set up then have to replace the arm. Now that it is set up, we are completely happy with the product but the kinks need worked out with this product as we have read other reviews where people have the same problem.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mounting spacers and tension screw Overall the unit went together well and works well on the wall. The spacers sent with the unit did not fit our TV with the screws provided. I had to cut two of the mounting spacers down to 1/2" in order to get the lower mount to work. The upper mount had the screws recessed in the back panel so that they fit perfectly as designed. The lower bracket would not fit no matter what I tried. There was nothing in the instructions to mention what to do if this came up. After cutting one spaced in half the mount proceeded quickly. The tension screw will not hold the level position and each time the unit is swiveled you have to recheck it for level.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from you know, overall this swivel mount is fine. easy instructions. quick install. tv is mounted securely. However, the tension mechanism that keeps the tv level and tilted where you want it is completely unacceptable. It will not tighten to a level where the tv is level and stays level when you turn it to point another direction. I'll need to physically level the tv every time I turn the tv. I warn anyone who buys the swivel mount of the deficiency of this feature...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mount. Great product. Awesome instructions I have 2 flat panel screens and a small apartment. For years I have wanted to mount my tv to my wall but so nervous that it would be a pain and fall off. Sanus does an amazing job with installation instructions. The packaging is well planned out. The install is easy as 1 2 3. I had a issue and emailed customer service and they were amazing. They made a great product, have great service and the best instructions I have ever seen for anything. Good job. You should buy without worry. Only feeling I have that is slightly negative is the price. But I guess you get what you pay for. This is good quality. Once I have enough money to buy another one I am buying one for my other tv. Love you guys!
