Our take on the Sanus VMF308-B1

by Ralph Graves
Sanus

Sanus' ultra-thin VisionMount® VMF308-B1 holds your flat-panel LCD or plasma TV just 1-1/8" from the wall when fully retracted. Just pull on the mount and it smoothly extends outwards up to 8".

The mount's decorative cover conceals the assembly and hardware, giving it a finished appearance that compliments your display. Cable guides keep wires organized and out of sight without interfering with motion of the extending arm.

This durable heavy-gauge steel mount supports a TV with a screen size up to 47" and weighing up to 60 lbs. The mount's brackets can easily be shifted to the right or left, in case the wall studs are a little off-center.

VMF308-B1

Written By MJ, CT on Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Overall: Sturdy mount and easy to follow instructions. Aesthetically it looks nice and its size appropriate. I probably spent more time measuring the wall for placement than actual installation. The extension on this mount is limited to only 8", but I knew this going in and it was perfect for my needs. (46" Samsung and I was seeking ~30deg tilt off the wall). The Wire management system works fine keeping things organized in the back.

One area of disappointment is the TV doesn't sit 1.1" off the wall as expected. The back of your TV will play a major role in this. I did purchase right angle HMDI and Coaxial connectors to help allow the TV closer to the wall. However, my limiting feature is the AC power cord. Sure, it's a right angle connection, but it bumps on the mount bracket. Again, the locations of your hook-ups will affect how close the TV sits off the wall. I'm currently at 2" and I'm satisfied.
Pros:
Easy to install and price... It was on sale (perhaps being discontinued?)
Cons:
None really... Just be mindful to the back of your TV, It will affect how close to the wall it can really be.

Sanus mount

Written By Anonymous, Philadelphia, PA on Thursday, June 28, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a nice looking mount that is easy to mount and install. Includes most of the necessary parts. If you are mounting on brick, plaster or concrete a few minor pieces and drill bits will be needed from the hardware store. Overall very simple.
Pros:
Simple to install, nice looking and great range of motion
Cons:
Need to buy some installation hardware

Perfect for my install...slim profile and full motion

Written By GWP, Arlington, VA on Tuesday, June 28, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Pretty straight forward to install as long as you have some previous experience with required tools. This works great and does really provide simple and almost effortless control of TV while on the wall. The only drawbacks were that my installation was into brick and hardware and instructions provided only covered concrete block and wood studs and it was not as low profile as I had hoped but that's because my TVs power cord was in the way of the mount. A quick trip to the hardware store solved the first item and the hardware provided with the mount cared for the second. All in all...very satisfied!
