How many ppl need to place 140 lbs TV set to your wall safely ?
2 people can do it. I have a friend who's a professional installer, and I watched him and his assistant mount a 65" plasma recently. Took them about 15 minutes to find the beams and securely screw the bracket to the wall, and about 5 minutes to screw the bars onto the plasma and hang it. Easy when you know how!
I did 32" to a wall, but thinking how I could do the 140 lbs alone ..
This where most DIY'ers fail big time.
Easy to buy $20 stud finder off Amazon, what I did. Problem is, has to stay in garage because it goes off when I walk by...
I had to add one more section of square steel to make the reach to the wall. I am sure that increases the tipping point. But the 100-200lbs won't do it. The arm has holes in it so it can be retracted for use in the garage. Comes in handy unloading the pick up as well.
I get my neighbor when I need to remove mine. But it takes 3 people: Two to lift the set and a 3rd to press the release button on the mount once a little weight has been taken off it.
Next time take the roll of quarters outta yer jeans...

Hehe, tough crowd.
Just found out my VT30 65" is shipping to Value Electronics on 4/25, so I should have in early April. Cant friggin wait.
Well, I caved into the size gods and did a flip, especially after talking to owners. 73" Mitsu 838 arrives Monday
Resurrecting an old thread, but I just ordered a Panasonic 55" ST30 Plasma last night. I picked it up from Best Buy for $1510.
I thought that was a good deal ...
I'm moving into a new house in two weeks and need a TV for the finished basement; the existing two flat-panels go upstairs.
I currently have a Samsung HP-R4252 - 42" Plasma - that'll go in the family room upstairs, and a 40" Insignia LED LCD.
I'm much in love with the Samsung, but the Insignia (LG) left a lot to be desired. (I knew I was getting a cheap unit -- I violated my personal "you get what you pay for" rule!) Motion blur sucks on the Insignia - it gives me vertigo, actually.
Any opinions on the Panasonic ST30's? I'm basically committed to it at this point, but wanted to know if anyone has this year's ST-series.
Its a very good set for the price, good color out of the box,. If you get it calibrated, it'll look even better.
Lot's of good Panny ST30 info available here.
Samsung PN59D8000FF works well in my rooms with medium to high light levels
So was DLP. But now Mitsubishi has stopped making LCD and for big ass (73" - 93"+) LaserVue units. That are just amazing. I first bought a 50" Samsung and after three + years it has the most incredible picture. And any crap you show on it looks gorgeous.
I have a 73" in storage waiting for the remodel of the area it's going into to be completed. Then a couple of the really big ones will have to go somewhere. I'll build place.
When you go to see 3D movies or even 2D's, they're projecting them these days using Tri-Chip DLP projectors. The best picture on the planet.
I've had a LG Infinia 60PZ950 60-Inch plasma TV for a couple of months now. The picture is absolutely stunning, and in 3D, it's like looking out a window into the world. The DirecTV tech who came out to do my dish realignment was shocked that it was a plasma. He thought it had to have been an LED. Plasma must not have had a very good picture quality in its early days to have this apparent stigma attached to it.
Plasma is still king this year:
However, my long awaited LG Nano is still in the wings.
On a side note, I saw the Sony LCD-LED flagship, the XBR-HX929 series at Best Buy. Wow, talk about black levels. Even CNET said the 929 has the best black levels of 2011.
Dang but that David Katzmaier is a smart guy!
