    I can't recommend any particular brand. I've probably mounted 15-20 tvs and used rocketfish, sanus, and the cheap walmart brands and they all work well.

    If someone's tv fell off the wall I'd chalk it up to user error.

    Typically the ones that fell off the wall are not installed right to begin with. Hanging TV's is part of my summer job and I have hung Tvs on both really expensive ones and really cheap ones. Typically the difference is in their ability to keep a TV level once its mounted and its ability to be tilted, rotated, etc. I have never (knock on wood) had an insurance claim for one coming off the wall.....

    Maybe you can get away without a full motion and just use a tilting mount?

    I built that corner unit. I really like the setup, you can point it anywhere.

    If i had to put it in a corner i would have gone w/ a single stud mount... but its on a plenty big wall so i opted for the multi stud mount for a few dollars more
