Nothing sucks more than waiting in line at midnight for that game you’ve been waiting endless months for, only to find out when you get home that your TV screen goes black when you start the game. Like many folks out there, you thought it would be a great idea to use your big screen TV as a computer monitor. It’s not a bad idea at all, but can have some technical difficulties that go along with it.
A tv wall installation consists of a special arrangement that is attached to the back of the television with the help of special brackets which in turn is bolted to the wall by drilling holes at heights which you find you most suitable for viewing. Are you still apprehensive about the arrangement and concerned about the safety of your expensive television sets? There is hardly any cause for worry.
Installing a LCD TV however is a demanding task, one that would require about 1-2 persons. Assistance would be required while mounting the LCD TV on the wall, carrying out drilling work and attaching the various cables and wires in their proper places.
The room design is just as important as the room itself. A two level room would be the perfect setup for a luxury setup. Just a simple configuration that allows for taking a small set of stairs to the upper level. Top that off with a pole where you can slide down to the first and it’s off and running.
This second type allows the plasma TV to tilt up and down. The final and most expensive model is the full motion mount; this model allows the TV to pivot from side to side and to tilt up and down. This last option is the most difficult to install and the most expensive to purchase.
The second kind of wall mount is the ultra thin which is barely far more than the screw casings and a wire. It is so skinny you would not even observe it at the rear of the tv unless of course you hunt for it. It is also a strong and tough solution. It gives even more aesthetic appeal since it is so skinny.
Tilt wall mount – The tilt mount is best for use where you would like to watch the TV in a reclining position. Most LCD flat screen TVs installed on bedroom walls or over fireplaces should be put up with a tilt mount. This arrangement can also serve to minimize light from windows reflecting on the screen and causing poor picture quality.
The articulating mount combines the strength of the swivel mount and the flat mount by allowing you to adjust the screen from left to right as you prefer, then push it back towards the wall when not in use. It’s the best of the 3 TV wall mounts, so far.
