VideoSecu manufactures and sells wall mounts; that's what the company does, and it does it well. It has a large selection with mounts for every occasion, and the VideoSecu Tilt M43 is one of the company's best TV wall mounts. This TV wall mount has the capability to support a 32- to 60-inch flat-screen TV weighing up to 165 pounds. It is equipped with all the mounting hardware you could ask for, and the mount even has a built-in bubble level to aid in installation.
If you look on the back of the VideoSecu Tilt M43, you'll see that it meets VESA standards for patterns 100 x 100 all the way up to 710 x 450. A large VESA pattern is indicative of a versatile TV wall mount. As long as your TV is at least 32 inches, the mount should accompany it nicely. A TV less than 32 inches may still fit on the TV wall brackets, but the mount will show behind the TV. An appropriately sized TV should hide the wall mount from view completely.
As is apparent by its name, the VideoSecu Tilt M43 can tilt up to 15 degrees. The tilting adjustment is perfect for a waiting-room setting or a home-entertainment system. If you choose to keep the mount in a fixed, non-tilted position, the mount and TV's profile is quite small, at 2.2 inches from the wall. This space gives you enough room to attach any necessary cables but also keeps a streamlined look. Whether the frame is tilted or fixed, its lift-and-lock feature secures your TV'’s position.
To install the TV wall mount, VideoSecu has tried to make it easier with a built-in bubble level and an extra level as well. However, you may find the level to be inaccurate when compared to one you've trusted in the past. When it comes to a TV wall mount, we recommend double or triple checking an even level reading.
VideoSecu includes all of the installation hardware needed to attach the mount to your wall, but several users have complained that the included hardware isn't sufficient. Most complaints relate to the sturdiness of the screws. We suggest attempting to use the included hardware as it is meant to go with the mount, but at the first sign of trouble – i.e., the screw breaks or strips – head to the hardware store for something better.
Once attached to the wall, the M43's rail design makes attaching the TV and brackets a cinch. There should be just enough room to connect the brackets to the rails and insert the necessary power cords as well. If the TV isn't centered, the horizontal adjustment feature allows you to slide it into place.
VideoSecu does not excel in the help and support department. The company has a minimal website with a phone number but nothing else. There are no FAQs to review and no online installation guides. A user manual does come with the mount, but that is where the support ends. VideoSecu doesn't include a warranty either.
There are several aspects of the VideoSecu Tilt M43 that any user will enjoy, such as the option for a 15-degree tilt or a stationary TV and the mount's heavy-duty steel construction. We also like the wide TV size range and large weight capacity. We only wish the included mounting hardware was of better quality and that VideoSecu had more help and support content on its website.
A horizontal adjustment features allows you to change the TV's position post-installation.
The hardware may not be sufficient for all TVs.
For a product from a company that specializes in wall mounts, VideoSecu is overall disappointing.
