    Default Plasma Wall Mounts? Which one...

    I need to get a wall mount for a 42" plasma set. I was gonna pick one up from monoprice but how do i know if it will work for my set?
    I see they have show tv size for each set but is there a way to be certain it will work?
    Like my set has screw holes 25"s wide and a 15" space between the height.
    Maybe i'm over thinking this, not sure?

    There is a standard for mounts called VESA I believe and most, if not all new televisions fall within this category. I'd look for VESA compliance.

    I got a Peerless from Amazon for cheap cheap and it is built like a tank! Very good mount IMO. It has what I'd call universal mount capabilities and is rated to handle up to a 46" panel.

    I like Omnimount Plasma brackets but any universal mount designed for a 42 inch TV should work just fine. Peerless and Chief are also good brands. I have no experience with Monoprice.

    If you ever consider changing cables - power or hdmi or whatever, get a swivel mount so you can pull the plasma forward and get behind for 'cable tweaking'.

    I use a Sanus swivel mount - comes in handy.

    I use a $26.00 one from Amazon, didn't know Monoprice carried them in that range, It works great for me. I've got a 46" on it.

    This is the Sanus I bought at Amazon for my 42" Plasma. It is very easy to assemble and is rock solid. Highly recommended.

    I can also vouch for the Monoprice tilting wall mount. I have used several of them (one yesterday, in fact) and they always do the job at a great price. With shipping they are usually about $40 for me to the east coast.

    Check your local Costco if you have one. Mine carries a couple of wall mounts that seem to be pretty inexpensive. I haven't compared any lately so I don't know what's on line these days price wise.

    No Costco near me. Best thing around here is a Best Buy and no way i'm paying the insane prices they want for one.

    +2 for MP. I got one of their most expensive ones and it was less than $75 shipped. Similar models at BB were pushing $300

    I've used multiple ones from monoprice. No issues at all, and they usually put a warning on there if a model doesn't work with certain TV's (buddy had a pioneer that the cheapest model wouldn't fit and they listed that info in the ad).
