It is important to choose the right wall mount for your new television if you want to enjoy your home theater experience as much as possible. However, that can be difficult sometimes if you aren’t savvy in knowing the ins and outs of mounting screens to your wall or ceiling for proper viewing. Here are a few pointers that can help you choose the best one for your situation.
First, be sure to know what viewing angles you want for the room in which you plan on mounting your flat screen TV. There are several types of mounts that allow you to either attach a screen to a wall or ceiling for many different angles of viewing. The two basic types are a wall mount or an arm mount and each offers different viewing angles.
The second thing you need to do is to determine the size and weight of your TV. Mounting mechanisms are built to support different weights and various sizes. If you aren’t sure of the weight and size of your screen, the TV’s manual will usually provide that info.
A third thing you should do is to determine what type of features you want in a mount. Some swivel, some are rather stationary and others tilt. For example, a swivel arm mount can offer many, many different viewing angles, perhaps more than any other type of mount.
Finally, one of the most important considerations when choosing a TV wall mount, is price. Quality is important when it comes to mounts that will support an expensive flat screen, plasma or LCD TV. It’s a good idea to protect your television investment by purchasing a good quality mount, without skimping on price, that has enough features to make your viewing experience very positive.
