Best Wall Mount TV Stand 2014

Updated on January 9, 2014

Top 5 TV Wall Mounts for 32 - 55 Inch HDTVs

Believe it or not, there are several different options to choose from when deciding on a TV wall mount for your home. You may be familiar with these as you may have encountered them at the store at which you bought your current television.

The prices were probably pretty high, around $90, at which point you probably decided that it would be more cost-efficient to find a cheap used television stand for less than $20. However, TV wall mounts are actually relatively cheap when you purchase them online, as stores try to make a lot more money than they should off of TV wall mounts.

On amazon.com, you can get most TV wall mounts for less than $15, which actually turns out to save you not only money but space when you think about placing your television.

Types of Mounts

There are also several different types of wall mounts, depending on what kind of function you want it to have within your house. The most common type of wall mount is a low profile mount, which you can mount onto your wall and essentially just hang your television off it like you would a picture frame off of nails. The television hangs off the wall mount by means of posts, and this is the best type of mount if you want your television to remain as close to the wall as possible.

Another type of wall mount is a tilt mount, which functions almost exactly the same as a low profile mount, except that it allows you to tilt the television up and down to improve your viewing angle depending upon where you’re sitting, so that this type of TV wall mount improves in utility. There are also arm TV wall mounts, which allows you to mount your television onto an arm that can swing out from the wall.

This TV wall mount allows you to adjust your viewing angle more than the other two thanks to its flexibility. The major disadvantage of the arm TV wall mounts is that they are probably the bulkiest type, and thus take up the most room in your house. There are also flip down mounts available that make it easy to hide your television in a cabinet or some other storage space when you’re not looking, although this type of TV wall mount is typically more compatible with smaller television screens.

Compatibility

After you have decided on which type of wall mount you want, you need to make sure that your television will fit on the wall mount. In your television’s owner’s manual, it should tell you whether or not your television is VESA-compliant, which means that it is capable of being mounted rather than just placed.

Most televisions are VESA-compliant, and your television is given a VESA number as well. Just be sure that whatever mount you choose is compatible with your particular television’s VESA number, so that you don’t waste your money or your time by installing a mount that won’t actually support your television. Here is a list of some of the best TV wall mounts available on the market today.

This arm wall mount from Sony allows you to swing your television out from the wall after you’ve mounted it and enjoy watching from a number of different angles.

The arm can extend up to twenty inches from the wall, and the arm also includes a predefined path for you to guide your cables through and keep them out of the way. The Mount-It! Articulating Wall Mount weighs approximately 75 pounds and comes with a ten year warranty.
