Best Vesa Mount

Knowing what kind of mount you need is half the battle when it comes to mounting your TV or monitors.

VESA stands for the Video Electronics Standards Association, and it is they who produce the standardizations in mount formats.

A VESA mounting pattern is one when the four mounting holes on the back of a flat panel TV (or computer monitor for that matter) are depicted in either a square or a rectangular formation.

It is described as “the distance horizontally x the distance vertically” and is the system adopted by most TV  brands.

Being such a common mounting system, there is no shortage of mount options out there for you, but to make easier use of your mount shopping, we’ve stepped in.

We’ve been checking out some of the best VESA mount options on the market, and after much deliberation, we were able to come up with our top 5 picks.

We’ll be showing you our reviews on those in just a moment, and after that, we’ve also got a buying guide for you, which briefly goes through everything that you might want to think about before you buy.

Then we’re going to top that off with a section where we answer some of your most frequently asked questions on the subject.

So without further ado, let’s jump straight in!

Mounting Dream UL Listed TV Mount for Most 26-55 Inch TVs, Full Motion TV Wall Mount with Perfect Center Design on Single Stud Articulating Mount Max VESA 400x400mm up to 77 LBS, MD2413-MX

Here’s a great full motion TV from that top best selling brand, Mounting Dream.

It can accommodate even the largest of TV screens, even if they measure a full 55 inches and weigh a whopping 77 pounds.

Yet, as a universal mount, it can also accommodate smaller TVs too, including ones as small as 26 inches.

The versatility of movement with it is phenomenal. It can extend out to a maximum of 16.7 inches, which is in stark contrast to its most flush position which is just 2.7 inches.

It can also swivel left or right a full 180 degrees, so you can watch from wherever you are in the room.

And if glare is a common problem in the room, that is soon remedied with the tilting function. You just tilt the TV ever so slightly up or down, and the glare is gone and you can see clearly.

There are a total of 13 different VESA patterns that it’s compatible with, from as little as 75 x 75 mm, all the way through to 400 x 400 mm. We’re not going to list them all here, please refer to the product page on Amazon for more details.

It’s easy to install, with instructions provided and all the hardware you need arrives in the box in pre-labeled bags, and with certain tools and cable ties. And you can level it properly after it’s been installed.

It’s strong and sturdy, constructed of heavy-duty aluminum and steel, and features special welding that will hold your TV firmly in its place.

But the most impressive of its features has to be the warranty. It’s not just for 1 year, like many other TV mounts, but for a whopping 10 whole years!

It costs a smidgen more than some of the other VESA mounts we’re showing you, but you might be able to catch one of Amazon’s occasional deals. Worth a look.

If you decide to buy this one, please be careful to buy the one that best suits your needs, as there are 3 different options on the Amazon page.

Pros

  • Swivels left and right
  • Tilts up and down
  • Rotates 360 degrees

If you’re looking for a wall mount with a full range of motion, then this may well be the one for you! You can swivel it left or right, tilt it upwards or downwards, and even rotate it upside down if you wanted to!

The swiveling is great if the person/s viewing like to sit in different areas of the room, and if the position of the mount allows, you can swivel a whole 180 degrees.

The tilting function, meanwhile, is handy for dealing with the glare of sunlight streaming through the window and obscuring your viewing.

And the rotation option is great for simply marveling at a movie’s graphics (or video console graphics for that matter). You can choose whether to watch in portrait mode or landscape.

It’s a universal TV mount, able to hold TVs of monitor sizes ranging from just 13 inches, all the way through to 42 inches. And it can even hold a curved TV screen too.

  • Universal TV mount
  • Swivels left and right
  • Tilts up and down
  • Rotates 360 degrees
  • Easy to install on wall

Cons

  • Not suited for screens over 42 inches in size

Best Vesa Mount Buying Guide

As promised, here’s your buying guide.

You can use it to check that you’ve considered everything before you buy your VESA mount.

Matching VESA Pattern

Most universal TV mounts have a range of compatible VESA mounting patterns that they can work with.

Where possible we’ve included the compatible VESA patterns in the product reviews, but where there are many different possible configurations, you should check the product page to confirm that the pattern you need is listed.

Weight Capacity

Where possible, we’ve included the maximum weight capacity of each mount in the product descriptions.

This is important because if you try to mount a TV that’s above the mount’s maximum capacity it will not be properly supported, and is a safety issue.

Swivel Function

It’s nice to be able to always swivel the TV monitor so that you can see it from wherever you happen to be sitting or standing.

If you know you want a mount with this function, then we can recommend our number pick, the.

Tilting Function

Depending on where you’re sitting relative to the TV, you may benefit from having the monitor tilting, even if it’s just a little bit, so you don’t have to strain your neck at all.

But that’s not the only benefit to tilting – it can also help to reduce all the glare from any sunlight pouring in through the window.

Flush Appearance

Many TV owners like their TV to run as flush to their wall as possible, as this makes for better aesthetics.

But it’s not by any means an essential feature.

Easy to Install

To be honest, the most daunting aspect of getting yourself a TV mount is not so much the buying of the mount and picking the best one.

That’s easy. But installing it on the other hand is something that you have to get right, else you risk damaging the TV, or getting hurt.

All of the VESA mounts in our top 5 picks are quite easy and straightforward to install, and all the hardware you need will be included in the box when it arrives. And better yet some of them also come with tools too.

But we’re going to level with you here and be honest and say that you might struggle to install it single-handed.

But when you have someone to help you, you can get your TV securely in place in just half an hour. You know what they say – teamwork makes the dream work, lol.

Cost

The good news is that VESA TV mounts are very affordable, usually costing between $20 and $40.

This means if you’re looking at one that costs more than that then this should trigger alarm bells that you may be on the brink of being ripped off.

Other Features

While all of the TV mounts in our top 5 picks can accommodate a wide range of flat-screen TVs, some of them can also accommodate a curved TV screen. Which is something to think about if you like the sound of getting a curved TV screen at some point in the future.

If this is of interest to you, then we can recommend our number 2 or number 3 pick, the two Pipishell TV wall mounts.

In addition to swiveling and tilting, some TV mounts can also offer a rotation function. And while there may not be much call to watch a movie upside down (lol), it’s a feature that might appeal to gamers who might benefit from this function.

If this is of interest to you, then again, we can recommend our number 2 or number 3 pick, the two Pipishell TV wall mounts.

Brand

There are a small handful of brands that dominate the retailer’s bestseller lists in TV mounts, and we have included 3 of them in our top 5 picks, namely Mounting Dream, Pipishell, and VideoSecu.

Warranty

If you buy from a top brand, you can expect a decent warranty.

Most VESA TV mounts come with at least a 12 months warranty, but the longer the warranty, the more assured you can be of the longevity of the product.
