Our take on the Sanus VLF320-B1

by Ralph Graves
Sanus

Sanus' ultra-thin VisionMount® VLF320-B1 holds your medium-sized or large flat-panel TV just 1-1/4" from the wall when fully retracted. Just pull on the mount and it smoothly extends outward up to 20".

The mount's decorative cover conceals the assembly and hardware, giving it a finished appearance that complements your TV. An integrated cable management system keeps wires organized and out of sight without interfering with the motion of the extending arm.

This durable heavy-gauge steel mount supports a TV with a screen size up to 70" and weighing up to 120 lbs. The mount's brackets can easily be shifted to the right or left, in case the wall studs are a little off-center. And you can make fine adjustments after installation to keep your TV leveled.

Features

Overview: The Sanus VisionMount VLF320 is a super-slim, full-motion wall-mount for large flat-panel TVs and monitors. This full-motion mount allows you to easily aim the TV for viewing virtually anywhere in the room. The mount can tilt, swivel, and extend in every direction so you can attain the perfect viewing angle. This mounting bracket, black in color, features a built-in cable management system to conceal and protect your cables. The mount is ultra slim, placing your TV only 1.25" from the wall, but can extend up to 20.8125".

Construction: The wall-mount bracket is made from solid heavy-gauge steel, with a durable powder coated black finish. It comes with a decorative cover to hide assembly and mounting hardware for a finished appearance.

Capacity: The VisionMount VLF320 is designed for 37" to 70" flat-panel TVs. It has a maximum weight capacity of up to 120 lbs.

Bolt Pattern and VESA: The vertical brackets that attach to the TV can accommodate vertical hole spacing (on the back of the TV) between 25mm and 420mm. The horizontal brackets can be adjusted to accommodate a horizontal hole spacing on the back of the TV from 146mm to 730mm. The VLF320 comes with M4, M5, M6, and M8 size bolts to mount the brackets to your TV. For TVs with curved rear panels, an assortment of spacers is included for proper mounting. Given the range of motion, the mount will accommodate the following VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) mounting hole patterns:

  • 200mm x 100mm, 200mm x 200mm
  • 300mm x 200mm, 300mm x 300mm
  • 400mm x 200mm, 400mm x 300mm, 400mm x 400mm
  • 500mm x 400mm
  • 600mm x 400mm
Note: Additional hardware may be required for your specific model of TV. For example; shorter or longer screws, thicker or slimmer washers or spacers. These additional accessories can often be found at your local hardware store.

Full-Motion w/ Fingertip Tilting Technology: You can laterally shift the TV along the wall plate for ideal placement. Fingertip tilting technology provides smooth tilting with the touch of a finger from 0° to -10°. The VLF320 can sit as close as 1.25" from the wall or extend out from the wall up to 20.8125". You can also swivel the wall-mount up to +/- 33°. When you have positioned the TV where you want it, you can lock the mount into place to prevent further movement.

Post-Installation Level Adjustment: Post-installation level adjustment allows the TV to "roll" up to 1.5º clockwise and counterclockwise to ensure it is perfectly level, and lateral shift ability makes it easy to center the TV on the wall, even with off-center studs.

Cable Management: With its integrated cable management system, the VLF320 keeps loose cables organized and concealed within the extension arm for a clean appearance without compromising TV motion.  A decorative cover also conceals assembly and mounting hardware.

Wall Mounting: The wall plate must be mounted to a wood wall stud (16" to 24" on center) or a solid concrete or concrete block wall. It is not designed for use in metal stud walls. The wall must be capable of supporting five times the weight of the TV and mount combined. Tools required for mounting include: a Phillips-head screwdriver, 1/2" socket wrench, electric drill, 7/32" drill bit (for wood studs), and 3/8" masonry bit (for concrete or block). To properly position the mount, you'll likely need a pencil, awl, level, tape measure, hammer, and stud finder as well.

Dimensions:

  • Wall Plate: Width = 31.5", Height = 13.1875". Depth = 0.875"
  • TV Bracket Assembly: Width = 32.1875", Height = 19.6875", Depth = 1.25"-20.8125"
  • Vertical Brackets: Width = 1.4375", Height = 20.125", Depth = 1.0"

Flimsy Wall Mount

Written By Cdam, Crystal River, Fl on Thursday, November 08, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was attaching a 70" TV to this bracket. Mounted unit to the wall and the pice that mounted to the TV had some play in it. You could move the mount piece back and forth with your hand and it had a fair amount of play in it. Then when you mount (hang) the TV to that piece (that has the small amount of play in it) , there is a TON of play in the TV out on the edges. When you grab the TV and move it around it felt VERY unsafe. I pulled the TV off this bracket and pulled this bracket off the wall. Although Sanus says this mount fits up to a 70" TV, they are right it does, but I don't think it is made for a 70" TV. Probably works best on a smaller TV with a thin frame.
Pros:
Articulating
Cons:
Too much play, felt very unsafe.
