Mounting a flat panel TV on the wall is an important job that can save your budget if you have little knowledge of how to do it. The cost of professional installation is somewhat high in addition to the mounting cost as well. However, if you are able to handle some accurate measuring as well as drive a small number of screws, then you can perform a good job in around an hour on yourself.
There is an array of wall-mount makes along with models. All of them are just the variations of three fundamental styles. These three styles mainly differ on the measurement of position adjustment of the screen.
Adjustments are able to remove glare and enhance viewing comfort in many ways. However, adjustability is very important for picture quality. Just like a computer screen, a TV screen’s picture is clearest whenever it is viewed straight on. Therefore, the mount, providing more adjustability, gives the viewers a clearer picture in various situations and it may even enhance one’s choices for where that person can position the TV.
Most of the flat TVs have been designed for wall mounting; however, you have to ensure it prior to the purchase. You should search “VESA” (stands for Video Electronics Standards Association) on the respective manual or on the TV itself, associated with a number like “VESA 75.” Any mount associated with the identical VESA number is going to work with one’s TV.
One has to consider wiring before the selection of the mount. If an individual decides to run the wiring inside the walls, then the mount design can determine where and how that person can install cable connections and an outlet.
Basic mounting: Low-profile mounts are capable of holding the TV adjacent to the wall. It helps to remove the obstacle to traffic paths and alleviates the risk associated with TV bruises or damage.
More adjustability: Tilting mounts enables one to mount the TV above the eye level or twist the angle for suiting the situation. An individual might want it if the family and friends are watching TV from the floor and the sofa in the next day.
Most Flexible Option: Full-motion mounts permits one to swivel, tilt, extend, and pan the TV. It implies that one can pull the TV off from the wall along with this, turn it to the direction of left or right in order to face the watcher.
Get the Appropriate Right:
Lower or Higher
It requires three individuals for positioning a TV. Whenever the person has found the appropriate spot, that person should mark one corner with the help of masking tape. Place the TV aside and then add tape for marking the specific bottom edge along with other corners.
A common mistake happens whenever individuals select a spot for the positioning of a TV is too high. Watching up at the TV screen can result in a sore neck along with a murky picture (specifically when the TV mount does not tilt). As per the recommendation of some experts, the screen should be centered at eye level while the viewers are seated.
