Sanus-MLL12-HDTV-mount-review-small.jpgSanusis one of those brands that truly has achieved market saturation, as its products are available seemingly everywhere. However, not all retailers are equal and Sanus, like many other manufacturers, has products unique to specific retailers. Case in point: Sanus' Classic lineup of products. Available in many big-box retailers such as Wal-Mart, Target and others, Sanus' Classic line isn't low-quality or necessarily even cheaper, it's just unique to the aforementioned retailers. Being a longtime Sanus customer, I wanted to see if the same Sanus quality I've grown accustomed to can be had via its less flashy lineup of products.�

I recently moved to a new house, so I was in the market for a new HDTV mount for my bedroom display. I don't readily change out the display in my bedroom, but I did want to leave myself some room for a larger screen should I decide to buy a larger HDTV down the road. Thankfully, Sanus' MLL12, reviewed here, is a mount for all seasons that can accommodate displays ranging in size from 32 to 70 inches. The MLL12 is a straightforward mount, as it doesn't have a great many bells and/or whistles; it doesn't articulate, tilt or move in any way. It's a mount, plain and simple, which is what I was after since, as I said earlier, my bedroom HDTV isn't where I do a lot of critical viewing. The mount itself measures 32 inches wide by 20 inches tall and a scant one-and-a-quarter inches deep, hence the low-profile designation. Maximum weight capacity for the MLL12 is stated to be 200 pounds, which is more than enough for today's crop of 70-inch displays. The included hardware (no tools) is comprehensive enough to facilitate mounting on a wide variety of surfaces including brick or stone.

Installing the MLL12 is about as easy as one-two-three and is capable of being carried out by even the most novice of DIY-ers, although if you're at all apprehensive about drilling holes in your wall, I recommend consulting a professional. I was able to mount the wall plate in less than fifteen minutes with the help of a stud finder, cordless drill and ratchet set. Fitting the supports to the back of my Samsung LCD HDTV was equally trouble-free. Once fitted, all I had to do was hoist the display onto the wall plate and, voila, instant wall-mounted HDTV goodness. It's that simple.
