How we picked the best TV wall mounts There’s not really a single wall mount that is better than all the rest. There are different types of wall mount, in different sizes, to fit different rooms and TVs. With that in mind, we’ve taken a look at the full range and picked some of the best of each type. We’ve broken down what each type is best for, so that you know which one will suit your TV and your setup. Of course, the one thing that applies to all TV wall mounts is reliability. It’s no good choosing a wall mount that is poorly manufactured, since the last thing you want is your shiny OLED, NEO-QLED or LED TV dropping to the floor due to a malfunction. So, in all of our research, we’ve made sure to only choose wall mounts that you can trust – provided you follow the guidelines for maximum size and weight. Don’t take these lightly – no pun intended. Top features and considerations There are a few key features you need to consider when you’re planning on wall mounting your TV. Fixed vs Moving There are three main types of TV wall mount, and which one to buy depends on what you’re looking for from your TV. Fixed wall mounts don’t move at all. They’re designed to hold your TV in place securely, usually without any angle, so that the screen is flat against the wall. Some of these mounts are super-thin and designed to mount the TV as close to the wall as possible. These are called flush mounts. Tilting mounts are similar but offer a little bit of movement, letting you tilt the TV downwards so that the top edge is slightly away from the wall. These brackets are best for mounting a TV in a central location high on the wall since you can tilt the screen down so that it’s facing you with you sat on the couch. The third type of mount is called full-motion. These mounts use arms to allow you to move the TV away from the wall in various directions – you can tilt and swivel. They’re great if you’re mounting the TV in a corner of the room since you don’t have to have it flush against the wall and can instead angle it to face the widest angle. Some full-motion mounts also allow you to slide the TV up and down. So you don’t need to worry as much about placing the mount at the exact right height. One other consideration when choosing your mount type is cable access. If you intend to leave the cables as they are, then there’s no real worry. But if you think you may need to disconnect any cables from your TV (say you want the flexibility to move your Nintendo Switch dock from room-to-room) then a full-motion mount makes it much easier to access the ports than a tilting or fixed option. Size (of mount and TV) Next up, you need to make sure you get a mount that’ll fit your TV. Which means you’re looking for VESA sizes. VESA is the measurement between the four mounting holes on the back of your TV, measured horizontally by vertically. Mounts will fit different sizes of TV, you don’t need an exact match. But you do need to make sure your TV falls within the range that the mount covers. Also bear in mind the actual physical size of the mount. You don’t want something huge if you’re only installing a 32” TV, especially if it’s in a tight space. You may prefer to look out for something a bit smaller. Max weight Weight is the other really important thing you need to factor in. Some TVs just weigh more than others, depending on the size of the screen and the way it’s been manufactured. It is vital that you don’t exceed the maximum recommended weight for a wall mount. Otherwise you risk the TV falling off and breaking on the floor. You can usually find your TV’s weight in the product manual, or in a product specification online. Wall to TV distance One final thing to look out for is the wall-to-TV distance, which tells you the range of measurements for how far the TV can be moved from the wall. Mostly, this is important if you want your TV to sit flush to the wall, as you’ll want the minimum distance possible. But you may also want to check the maximum distance, in case you need to keep accessing cables without any difficulty.
