Item #: 051XF228
With the Sanus XF228 you can easily wall-mount and precisely position your flat-panel plasma or LCD TV. Part of Sanus' VisionMount HDpro™ series, this full-motion bracket can support TVs with screen sizes from 42" to 84" and weighing up to 175 lbs. The dual articulated arms extend your TV up to 28" out from the wall. The mount lets you swivel your TV from side to side up to 75°, in either direction, and you can also tilt your TV for optimal viewing.
Sanus' QuickConnect™ system lets you attach the mounting head by simply snapping it into the arm assembly. And you can disengage it with a button push — handy if you need to remove your TV for repairs or replacement.
After installation, the mount's "roll" adjustment lets you fine-tune your TV's position to ensure that the screen is perfectly level. The arm assembly can be also be shifted slightly left or right on the wall plate so the TV is always centered, even if your wall studs are off-center. And the mount's hollow arms let you thread cables through them, keeping them out of sight and free from tangles.

Great product! Very easy to install! Quite versatile allowing me to possibly buy up to a 90 inch television in the future!
Pros: Good quality. Easy install.
Cons: Can't think of anything other than price! But hey, as the saying goes:"You get what you pay for"!
very good stand. Works great on an 80"
Pros: does everything you could possible want it to do
Cons: $$$$, but worth it.
"Installation is a Breeze" is written on the shipping box. That's Close. You will need to have some mechanical ability as the instructions are written, but knowledge of lag bolt application, for example, is necessary. But I'm satisfied with the security of this mount. It's holding a 70" Sony on our Living room wall. it's not the most inexpensive, but I don't know why one would "go cheap" on the mount with a multi-thousand dollar TV set
Pros: full travel, secure mount
Cons: needs better use of proper hardware nomenclature
Overview: The Sanus Systems VisionMount HDPro Series XF228 is a full-motion wall mount for extra-large flat panel TVs and monitors. 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.
Capacity: The XF228 is designed for 42" to 84" flat panel TVs. It has a weight capacity of up to 175 pounds.
Bolt Pattern: The monitor bracket has multiple vertical slots and can accommodate vertical hole spacing (on the back of the TV) up to 21.625" (550mm). The unit can expand horizontally for extra large TVs. The vertical brackets can slide along the horizontal bars, accommodating a horizontal hole spacing from 5.4" (137mm) to nearly 34" (860mm). The XF228 comes with M4, M5, M6, and M8 size bolts of differing lengths to mount the brackets to your TV.
VESA: Given the mounting bracket's range of motion, it will accommodate the following VESA hole patterns in accordance with industry standards set by the Video Electronics Standards Association:
Virtual Axis: Sanus' patented Virtual Axis tilting technology allows effortless viewing angle adjustment without the use of tools by balancing the weight of the TV on itself. You can tilt the TV up or down with just the touch of a finger, and easily reduce glare and reflections caused by lights or windows. Dual arms allow large TVs to easily extend, retract, tilt, and swivel up to 28" from the wall. The arm assembly shifts left and right on the wall plate so the TV is always centered, even if the wall studs are not. Once mounted, the TV's range of motion is as follows:
ProSet: Once installed, the TV may not appear completely level with its surroundings. ProSet technology lets you make micro-adjustments to height and level after mounting to ensure perfect positioning.
QuickConnect System: The QuickConnect system allows the mounting head to snap onto the arm assembly with one easy movement and unlock with the push of a button. This allows you to attach and detach the TV to the wall mount arm quickly and easily.
Cable Management: The XF228's FollowThru in-arm cable management channel protects and completely conceals all cables without inhibiting movement, even through the elbow.
Optional Speaker Mount: The Optional Sanus VisionMount VMA202 soundbar speaker mount (item # 051VMA202) attaches directly to this wall mount, allowing you to mount your soundbar, digital processor speaker, or center channel with no additional drilling under your TV. The VMA202's extruded aluminum and heavy-gauge steel construction is strong and sturdy, and holds speakers up to 35 lbs.
Wall Mounting: The bracket should be mounted to a wood wall stud, solid concrete, or concrete block using the supplied wall-mount lag screws. Required tools include:

Strength, size, range of movement. Also it should be able to handle future TV's. [ Kenneth Dec 28, 2015 ]
