Tips To Buying A Wall Mounted TV
A wall mounted TV can give your home theater a nice and clean look, and also provide you with the best possible viewing experience. There are several tips to buying a wall mounted TV. Here are some of them. The first step is to check the TV owner’s manual before buying a wall mount. While many televisions can handle nearly any flat screen mount, there are some that require specific brackets. This is why it is usually not advisable to buy a wall mounted TV at the store at the same time the television is purchased. Size is important when choosing a mount. Remember that flat screen televisions, whether they are plasma or LCD, come in a variety of sizes. Brackets are rated to handle a certain size and weight of television and that is clearly marked on the packaging. Do not choose a wall mount that is not rated for the size of television you have.
There are two main types of wall mounts. An arm mount includes a support that can often be moved to keep the television closer to the wall, or out away from the wall and pointed a certain direction. The traditional wall mounted TV can only keep the television on the wall. This may be an important factor for some people. Also, remember that not all traditional mounts are created equal. Some may have the ability to swivel. Others may have the ability to tilt down or up. These may be important considerations for those who want a little flexibility with their viewing options.
