Wall bracket opinions

I appear to have zeroed in on a Peerless 660 bracket for my 50" Panny. But, I haven't decided whether to go with the flat mount model or the tilt. I am trying to stay as close to the wall as possible but the tilt model give you a little more flexibility. Any feedback from members using these brackets would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have the tilt model over the fireplace in the bedroom. You may need room behind the tv for the wires. If the mount isn't to high, you probably don't need the tilt action.

If it is very close to the wall, you will need to recess the connections. You'll need to do some planning in order to do the install correctly.

If the set will be mounted at eye level, you won't need a tilt mount. If it's higher, get a tilt mount.

I doubt you'll need to recess anything. Most sets have recessed connections, so the cables will run nearly straight down the back with hardly any cable sticking out.

Yes, my TV has a recessed connector area . I went with the flat mount. Thanks again.

You can turn a flat mount into a set tilt angle if desired. I did it with my universal and a 50" Panny.

Take a 1 x 2 and rip it at about a 15 degree angle or less and use this for behind the top portion of the mount against the wall. I then ripped a 1 x 2 at 3/8 thick with no angle for the bottom.
