• The VMPL50A's build quality is solid and robust and its finish is smooth and well done, which is nice given the fact that Sanus knew ahead of time that their work and attention to detail was ultimately going to be hidden by the HDTV mounted in front of it.
• Installing the VMPL50A is easy and straightforward and able to completed by a single person -no DIY skills really required. If you can read and follow instructions than you can hang your prized HDTV with the VMPL50A.
• The sheer level of adjustment afforded to you by the VMPL50A is terrific and among the best I've seen from any tilting wall mount on the market today.
• The VMPL50A's tab locking system is more convenient than many security bar and lock systems.

Low Points
• There are more affordable tilting wall mount solutions out there but none as feature laiden and easy to use than the VMPL50A -at least none that I've seen and or used day-to-day.
• For those looking to jump aboard the Sharp 80-inch HDTV train the VMPL50A isn't going to be the mount for you since its compatibility stops just short at 70-inches.

Competition and Comparison
You can't throw a rock in an HD showroom without hitting a mount capable of affixing one to your wall, table or ceiling. HDTV mounts are becoming as common as a cold with prices ranging from the super cheap to you have to be kidding me. Other manufacturers that compete with Sanus directly that are potentially worth your consideration are Omni Mount and Chief. For more on HDTV mounts and accessories please check out Home Theater Review's AV Racks and Furniture page.

For just under $150 retail the VMPL50A tilting wall mount from Sanus will not only affix and secure your HDTV to your wall with ease but also provide you piece of mind that should you want to adjust and/or move things in the future the process will be trouble free. As far as HDTV mounts go, if you don't require a telescoping armature or automated control, you would be hard pressed to do better than the VMPL50A wall mount from Sanus.
