The Mount-It MI-303L, formally the Digicom 104-1070 tilting wall mount, is another of Mount-It’s fantastic TV wall mounts. This mount has all of the features we expect from Mount-It, like a universal VESA pattern compatibility and a sleek design. This mount is compatible with VESA patterns ranging from 100 x 100 all the way up to 800 x 400. Such a wide range makes sense seeing as the MI-303L can hold TVs measuring between 40 and 70 inches and weighing up to 220 pounds. That is a really big television. It’s a good thing the mount is made of a heavy-duty steel to support so much weight. However, with something as big as this mount, bulk will start to be a problem. The bulk in this case manifests itself in the profile specs.
Once this bad boy is mounted to your wall and the TV is installed, it will stick out from your wall a little over 3 inches. In comparison to sitting on an entertainment unit that may not seem like a lot, but when you compare it with competing TV wall mounts that protrude only 1 inch from the wall, you’ll notice the difference. If you choose to move the wall mount out of a fixed position and into a tilt, up to 15 degrees, the profile will increase even more.
Being such a monstrous TV wall mount, we recommend installing it with another person. It should be simple, as Mount-It includes a user-friendly user manual with step-by-step instructions, but lifting the TV and attaching it to the wall plate is a two person job. Mount-It includes all of the mounting hardware you’ll need, and the MI-303L has a built-in bubble level on the back.
A horizontal adjustment bar allows you to slide your mounted television into the perfect viewing position. This is by far one of our favorite features because not only does it make up for user error, allowing you to center a misaligned TV, but it lets you adjust the TV for different situations. Once you’ve picked the perfect TV position, you can lock it into place, and the lock even has an area you can hook on a padlock to prevent theft.
Mount-It has a very consumer-oriented attitude. They’ve set up their website to be a true resource for their customers. Each product’s page includes specific information, and the MI-303L’s page describes the five-year warranty included with the mount. If you need direct assistance, Mount-It has a customer support phone number and email address.
The Mount-It MI-303L TV wall mount is a larger version of the Mount-It 318 that we ranked near the top of our TV wall mount lineup. We ranked this particular version slightly lower because we don’t think the size and bulk evident in this mount is needed to secure a large television. However, it still has all of the fantastic features we admire in all Mount-It products. It has a horizontal adjustment bar with an area for padlock protection and a universal VESA pattern compatibility. To tie it all together, a 5-year warranty is included, guaranteeing the product’s quality.
This mount’s VESA compatibility goes all the way up to 800 x 400.
The mount’s weight and size capacities make it a bit bulky for our taste.
If you have an extra large TV weighing over 200 pounds, this mount is perfect for you.
