    I'm currently looking at options for wall mounting an ultra-wide monitor, and thought I'd check and see what other people are doing, for inspiration. Does anyone have a setup that they'd like to share details / pictures of?

    Yeah, that’s pretty close to what I’m looking for. I have a shallow desk, so the closer I can get it to the wall the better.

    I’ve been eyeing this off (eBay link) which is a little slimmer with tilt and pivot. Alternatively I might at the fixed position mounts.

    I'm curious about the monitor size recommendations.. I'm sure a bigger but still light monitor would be fine too?? I guess they're just conservative as they don't want liability for people's huge displays

    Avoid the cheaper mounts where possible.

    Look at Shelbys Acoustics, they have hundreds of different mounts and they are all decent, its what i used for all of my wall mounts (inc 2x 40 inch Philips monitors)

    Another vote for Selby Acoustics, very reasonable prices and range. Plus you can see it in their warehouse.

    This I bought a cheap eBay swivel arm mount for a 42" plasma... well under the weight rating of the arm and it still sagged the first time I extended it out. Pain having to get a refund. But lesson learnt try and find a quality branded one

    As long as it is within the maximum load rating, it shouldn’t matter.

    Thanks, I’ll check them out. I’m not all that concerned about price, I just want a really slim Vesa 100 mount.

    I purchased 2 TV wall mounts from VFM Audio and had no issues. (Well other than trying to find the stud finder. and then batteries for the stud finder, then working out the best position to mount the TVs now that the stud locations are known, while still needing wife approval....). I managed to get both tvs up using existing studs and not needing any additional support boards.

    After quite a bit of searching, I think I have a winner. The Lumi LPA16-224 is super slim and full motion, and it looks like I have a wall stud in just the right place!
    Will post up some pics once I've gotten it mounted.

    Megabuy seems to be the cheapest with stock, at ~$61PP.
