Mounting the VLF311-B2
I’ve been wanting to wall mount my 50” Pioneer Plasma TV for quite a while, but I just couldn’t find the right mount for what I wanted, that is until the Sanus VLF311-B2 mount arrived for review.
The box was quite heavy, but then it did have a very sturdy mount capable of mounting a TV as big as 84”, which would put my 50” one to shame!
The mount was very well packaged, and came with both an instruction manual and also a very useful wall template, along with all the screws and bolts you need to fit it.
Now I have to be honest, I decided that I would get a professional to fit it for me rather than doing it myself, although the instructions are incredibly clear and easy to follow, I just felt happier someone else doing it. Although having watched it be fitted I realised I could easily have done it myself, I know for the next one.
Once fitted to the wall, the mount felt very sturdy and had a full range of movement, even when the TV itself was attached to the mount.
In order to keep everything looking good and tidy, there are wall plate covers and cable management provided. These were very easy to use and quickly made the entire area look neat and tidy without the need to dig holes in the wall and re-plaster, so good job there Sanus!
Once the TV is in place you can easily adjust the tilt and the level using one of the supplied hex keys all with very little effort.
As this mount provides full-motion, it is easy to adjust the position of the TV in or out, left or right or different angles. And then once you are finished you can just push it back into position neatly against the wall.
Very little effort was needed to move the TV – Sanus say it can be done with a touch of the finger, and for the most part that’s true – although I used a little more force, but the mount was brand new and the TV was heavy! I have noticed it getting easier with more use.
Overall I was very impressed with the Sanus VLF311-B2 TV mount and can highly recommend it to anyone who needs a very sturdy and secure TV mount that offers easy to use full-motion movement and can accommodate larger and heavier TVs and that looks good when its mounted.
Cost wise you are looking around £130 but as usual look around for a good deal.
