Gotta love Monoprice!

Can't even see the bottom of the box in this picture.



The box inside the bigger box is 250 feet of speaker cable, there is another 200 feet in there somewhere.

My 90 pound 12 year old daughter had a hard time dragging this off of the front porch and inside the house.

I have a second shipment coming Friday, but it won't be as big.

Sweet! I'm thinking about ordering a wall mount from them in the future for a plasma that I have yet to purchase.

Has anyone had experience with their TV wall mounts? They look sturdy, have good reviews, and are MUCH cheaper than omnimount.

I picked up a wall mount for our 32" LCD in our bedroom from them (different shipment), and it is rock solid. Not sure how it would compare to Omnimount.

David, I've bought four of them and love them. I DID get ones rated heavier than my needs...i.e., if I had a 30lb TV to mount and had a choice of "up to 40lbs" or "up to 809lbs", I picked the heavier one figuring it was STILL so much cheaper than any other supplier and if I moved to a larger TV in the future....

Not to mention peace of mind that the mount is "over-qualified" for the job.

I do wish that they had a comparison chart, though, as there are so many choices. Mounting in brick, corner mounting, various capabilities of motion, weight capacities....etc. They really need a series of questions to narrow the choices down to a couple of recommendations for your needs. I mentioned that to whoever handles their Facebook page, and he thought it was a great idea, but I don't think anything's been done.

Stop wasting your money, Mark! Unused weight capacity is just that ... unused!

Sorry I couldn't resist.

Thanks for the input Mark. I need to figure out what type of mount I want (fixed, moveable, etc.)

I'm still trying to figure out if David (terz) is referring to his wife, girlfriend, or whomever when he said he is trying to decide if he wants a movable mount or not.

Sorry, that was uncalled for. I'm just warming up for the stag party weekend. cool
