Worked perfect for my 49" Sony Bravia
Reviewed in the United States on January 15, 2019
I mounted my new 49" Sony Bravia XBR49X900F in my bedroom with this mount. All went well and am completely satisfied with this product. My TV is only 30 lbs and therefore I only used two of the four lag bolts into studs (top side of bracket), to minimize wall damage (probably not recommended however). The bracket is completely secure and tilts just fine (I left the tilt knobs slightly loose so I could adjust after hanging). After install, I was able to easily slide the TV to center. If there were any improvements I'd like to see, it would be a post install level adjustment, especially at this higher price point relative to all the cheaper mounts out there. But mine is level thankfully. Just be careful drilling your screw holes in the wall, that defines your level.
The actual install went very quickly after I finally decided on the height. Looking at all the internet sites regarding TV height placement is confusing and worthless IMO for your bedroom. Just put the TV where is easy on your eyes depending on your viewing position (I used blue tape temporarily), keeping in mind any furniture (like chest of drawers) you may want to slide under it. In my case I have an almost 5' tall chest of drawers that I have under the TV. With my 8' ceiling, TV and chest height, I decided on having the top of my TV 7" from the ceiling. That's comfortable viewing for me and I'm satisfied knowing I can move my chest as needed, under or beside the TV. Yes, I did originally have my TV on a stand, on top of of the chest of drawers. But I like the TV pushed back further closer to the wall, the small downward tilt and the cleaner look which this mount provided.
