Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a fabulous mount, incredibly sturdy, and comes with enough hardware to
mount just about any television that you buy. However, I am only giving this
four stars because the instructions are absolutely brutal. There is about one
sentence per page with 3 or 4 diagrams that make very little sense. Thanks to
my wife for having the patience to figure it out. But once you figure out their
logic, it's a breeze to install.

5 stars for product build
5 stars for product flexibility
2 stars for horrible instructions

Overview: The Sanus Systems VisionMount ML22 is a low-profile wall mount for medium flat panel TVs and monitors. The mount holds the TV approximately 1" from the wall for a clean look. This mounting bracket is made of powder-coated steel and is glossy black in color. Once mounted, the TV can slide laterally for perfect placement, even with off-center studs.

VESA Compatible: This TV wall-mount features two TV mounting brackets with holes spaced up to 11.9" (303mm) apart. The brackets can slide horizontally along the wall plate to give you a horizontal range of 1-1/2" (38mm) to 13.6" (345mm). If you reverse the brackets, the maximum horizontal mounting hole width becomes 16.25" (412mm).
