Question Wall Mount for 60 inch T.V.?

I need to mount my TV on the wall in my bedroom, it's a LG Plasma, so it's heavy. I also need it to pull out and swivel from left to right. I did a quick search and Ecogear seems like it has good reviews. My other question is installation too.
Any advice or recommendations are appreciated.

Instead of mounting the TV you should put that money into your 401k, or maybe an older corvette or Porsche. There’s a guy on here, can’t remember his name, but he has done that and is way better of and smarter than the rest of us.

I’m pretty sure it was the echogear one on Amazon we picked up, swivels, pivots, articulates and all that jazz. Works great, we used lag bolts to the studs to mount it and it’s pretty solid.

Simple, 2 steps.
1. Buy a Samsung QLED TV
2. Call these guys to install it

weigh that thing, and make sure whatever mount you choose can support the weight. Then make sure you get the right anchors/bolts into the studs, and you shouldn't have a problem.

I have a really heavy original 55 inch Visio, probably weights 75-100+ pounds, and it's on a standard Wal-Mart mount, but I have 6 bolts holding the mount frame into studs.

I used one of these mounted to brick over the fireplace at our old house, with a smaller, lighter TV and it was really good quality.

Thanks guys, I'll probably buy two of the Monoprice mounts, the Pana weighs 128.6lbs and the LG is 76.3 lbs, so those mounts are more than enough to hold them up on the wall. Not bad prices either, considering that Micro Center wants $99.00 for their HD units that look identical to MP's units.

If you buy 2 of the monooprice ones, is it a biprice, or dualprice mount?
