Hi all,

I have this LED which I am wanting to mount, in the manual it states "Our 55 inch models do not comply with vesa standards and our wall mount should be used"

Their mount is like a picture frame type mount with a very small tv to wall distance.  I'm not wanting to go down this route since there is no security on the mount and kids as they do who knows what is going to happen.

I have measured the mount holes (roughly) and it appears to be 400x400 - there are lots of wall mounts around that support this, but I am wondering what the gotcha is?

Could it be the size of the screws? or perhaps it is 402x401 kind of mount pattern?

Has anyone had experience in these TV's and mounting them to universal mounts - I fail to believe the only mounting option is the ultra thin samsung which is picture frame type.

Thanks in advance

One of these will work fine :) or a similar one to that

Even though they say that VESA mounts don't comply, they do!
Plus this one is adjustable to any width and most heights

Thanks for your prompt replies! :)

Still baffled why it says that in the manual, I guess if anything the brackets etc should be ok, just possibly need to take extra care with the screws perhaps gently tighten them to ensure they don't damage the tv and pack them if need be, perhaps that is what they are meaning by not vesa compliant.
