Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I bought the LR1A to use with the Sanus VM400 mount. I searched the web and read tons of reviews where people complained about flimsy construction of this or that mounting system. Well the Sanus products are definitely not flimsy. The LR1A is a big heavy chunk of metal. It is not only very well made but the design was thought out with care. I was very surprised the instruction sheet is readable and the screw holes all line up. This is a mounting box in that it fits into the wall and in that way your mount and TV can hang very close to the wall. If you want to get your TV as close to the wall as possible then this does work. The box has knockouts for power a AV cable. The knockouts are at both the top and the bottom. I am using the VM400 mount with this box. The power and AV locations are positioned well; the mount actually does not hit the cables when the TV is pushed back to the wall. The kit, besides coming with many nice heavy duty bolts, also comes with a handy template to mark where to cut on your wall. I had no trouble fitting between 16" on center studs. The LR1A was a very good choice for me.
Pros: Heavy duty, excellent design
