The TV mount itself is great. Strong, adjustable, very nice. But the installation instructions are wretched. Fortunately for me, I'm handy/mechanically inclined, so I figured it out fairly quickly. But if you are use to an "ikea" level of instruction, you make want to go for another one. But this one is so cheap and of such good quality, it's hard to pass up. Here's a tip--it comes with a large variety of machine screws, most of which you will not use. They are there to be universally able to adapt to whatever TV you have. Also, it's best to first mount a small piece of plywood into two studs, then mount the TV stand onto the plywood--so that you know the stand is ultimately mounted into studs, not Sheetrock. The stand itself has a bit of weight as does your TV, so you will want it screwed into studs if possible. I used three 1/4-20 machine screws that were received by three matching T-nuts on the other side of the plywood. I counter-bored the t-nuts about an 1/8 inch deep with a 7/8 inch forstener bit, and mounted the plywood on the wall with four 2" #10 sheet metal screws. Centering this bad boy on the plywood (and over your viewing area) was a bit of a trick. Most of my time was spent measuring and calculating. I wish I remembered the key measurements but I don't, and sadly the instructions won't tell you either. Good luck!
