TV wall bracket

I'm looking to mount our TV on the wall. Looking for recommendations on Brackets. Whats the best?

Looked at PCworld/Currys and they seem majorly expensive compared to ones of Amazon.

- TV is 55inch and very slim.

- I'd like it as flat to the wall as possible (maybe with the option to tilt?)

- It will be mounted to a plasterboard/metal stud wall (I am going to use Gripit plasterboard fixings and try and find a metal stud to fix into)


Also would be interested to see the way people have hidden cables in the wall. I think it should be quite easy for me to do this because of the hollow stud walls.

Fire away...

I've used one of these for putting the tv on the garage wall. Very sturdy, and very easy to hang.

Used VON HAUS, from Amazon on numerous fits of various maxes of TV. No issues ever

Example.

Simple, easy to put up, great fit, good adjustments.

Thanks.

These do look really good however I should of mentioned I plan to stick a socket behind to plug the TV into. I think this would sit too close to the wall for this to work. correct me if i'm wrong?

look at the Syncbox recessed power/cable system - gets around the problem of plugs sitting proud of the other all preventing the TV from fitting flush on a slim bracket.

I have this one for kitchen just installed LG C8 55

One For All SV6610 TV Bracket Flat Wall Mount for 40-84-Inch TV

And in living room have even closer mount

Slimline® - Ultra Slim Flat-to-Wall Mount
Screen sizes: 37-65"

Just be aware it can be a nightmare to get cables in even with 90degree coaxial the Cat5 was a pain had to cut another back box to allow it to sit into wall.
Sanus has some good ones, but the one I just fitted did the job but not perfect

Newer screens are not that heavy anymore. The gripit plasterboard fixing will work a treat if you can’t pick up a stud. Sometimes I have had to use my own bolts as the ones provided are not always long enough. They also have a slim lip which makes anything you fasten up sit not quite flush against the surface which is not always ideal.
