    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great I just finished mounting our 42" Vizio tv in a little corner in our bedroom, I watched the videos and studied the directions. Then I just followed the steps and voila, all the parts were there, and our tv fit perfectly. It's a minimalist stand, but anything bigger would not have worked in our very limited space. I wouldn't recommend it for a 50 inch plus tv, but for our sized tv it was ideal.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult installation without correct parts I bought the SMF218 at Fry's Electronics after checking compatibility on the SANUS website with a Samsung 55" TV, using the model number. Assembly of the arms went well and was fairly easy according to the instructions. As others have pointed out the instructional videos are generic so aren't of specific help when a problem arises. The Samsung TV we have has a curved back. Problem number 1 is that the spacers provided don't fit a Samsung, they have their own, unique size which came with the TV. I likely saved them but can't find them anywhere. Had to order those which is ok, but a heads up from the compatibility checker might have been nice. Second problem, the M8 bolts which are included in the kit aren't long enough. None of them fit the pair of deeper holes at the bottom of the TV, they touch the nut but are 1/4" too short to actually attach. When adding the spacers for the top holes, all of the M8 bolts are 1/2" too short. I'm headed to the hardware store to see if I can find what I need. I'm in a small town so have no clue if these are stocked at the local store. So far, frustrating!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Instructions to watch non-existent video, funny! Instruction Manual says "We're here to help" and refers you to "SMF218-B! Installation Video" to be found at "SANUS.com/2688". No such video on the website, though there is a more general installation video that focuses on a completely different model with different considerations. Why pretend? We are also referred to a "HeightFinder" video at "SANUS.com/1173", Where you are first asked for your Television's model number, then it asks for your mount's model number, though it doesn't respond when you type it it, so you have to select it from the extended list at "View All Mounts". Once you've found your model listed and click on it the website goes into retrieval mode -- it's been about 3/4s of an hour so far and it still hasn't found whatever it's looking for. So, OK, the actual manual looks fairly comprehensive, so I'm not really expecting more than the usual amount of trouble, but so far all their splashy helpfulness has done for me is waste my time. Not encouraging. I sure hope the quality of the actual mount is superior to that of their website. AS I have not yet installed the device I cannot yet answer most of the rating questions below, though apparently I can't post my comments without saying whether or not I would recommend the product. So far, I gotta say no. If it's possible to update this review I'll do so when the time comes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish I had Installed A Wall Mount A Long Time Ago Other than a little help placing a new VISIO 40-inch TV, the SANUS SMF218 was easy to install. It wasn’t a fast process, due to the wide array of hardware that was included. I guess there’s no way to avoid that issue because this TV wall mount is not specific to any one particular TV brand or model. Just a note that one of the lag bolts broke inside the wall so they aren’t made from hardened steel. A trip to the hardware store was made for extra lag bolts. Arrange all hardware and parts on a flat surface and make sure you have everything listed before starting. For VISIO Model No. V405G9, the following hardware was used: M6 x 35 screw M6/M8 washer Universal spacer (the smaller spacer would have worked as well) TV bracket screws (4), Lag bolts (2), and Locking screw (1), are hardware that everyone will use. My installation was done on drywall and into the stud.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Annoyed, by the wrong video. I have the SMF218 with the single stub mount and bracket. The instructions manual (or lack thereof) directed me to www.sanus.com/2688. However the videos talks about how to mount a double stub NOT the single stub. Also it doesn't show me how to mount the brackets to the tv. Horrible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, easy installation. Not sure why there are so many comments about the instructions. I thought they were very straightforward. (I didn't watch the video others are commenting on though.) Went up easily. Is straight and level. Moves freely and holds in place. Exactly what I was looking for.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Wall Mount Just installed a 32” Samsung on this wall mount. Seems to work OK so far. Instructions were OK. Here’s a couple of points for your consideration: The instructions suggest using a 1/8” drill bit to drill 2-3/4” holes for the mounting lag bolts. Unfortunately, most 1/8” drill bits are only 2-1/4” long. When mounting the horizontal bracket to the TV, there’s quite a bit of “play” when using the M4 or M6 screws (because the bracket hole needs to be large enough to accommodate the M8 screws). Perhaps Sanus could supply the smaller washers with a shoulder, instead of flat washers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great I bought this at Costco today and came across the reviews looking for the ridiculous instructional video (totally different model). I was concerned I would be in the same boat. But I received all the correct hardware. I did have a hiccup with the screws that mount the vertical TV bracket to the horizontal brackets. Looking at the instructions, It shows the vertical bracket centered on the horizontal brackets. But the screws are too short. Fortunately for me, I was only off by one hole, so I set the top of the vertical bracket in the top of the horizontal bracket (which looks like it was designed to do that!) and worked great. Took about 30 minutes to install.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from it worked I bought this from Costco and even though I am pretty handy, I was still intimated by hanging my NEW tv and especially in a travel trailer no guts, no glory! I went 0n line to look for instructions but found none for the Sanus - SMF218. Bummer! I read the instructions and went through it one step at a time and lo and behold, I did it. It wasn't that hard. Just need to read the instructions, hard for a man I admit, but they gave clear and complete instructions. Go for it!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Missing the correct screw size Just like a lot of the reviews say, the package is missing a set of 5m screws to attach the plate to the brackets attached to the TV. Spent 30 minutes messing around with this and will be returning ASAP. Why would they continue to keep it on the shelves at Costco when there are missing screws? Disappointed and wasted time trying to figure it out.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Missing Hardware Opened up the box and found I’m missing 3/4 of the hardware that’s supposed to be included. The majority of the screws, bolts, and spacers are not there. Extremely annoyed and disappointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Easy I bought this about a month ago and finally got around to installing it. I started with the video which was pretty worthless since it only addressed a different model. Then I read the reviews and some of them made me wonder if I should just take this back to Costco. But, I decided to give it a go and, frankly, the instructions were well written and the installation was pretty easy. If it weren't for the video issue, I would have given this 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Installation Design and Instructions This wall mount kit came with enough bolts and other accessories for a multitude of TV models and configurations. The instruction booklet had complete step-by-step instructions with diagrams for each phase of installation. There is even an option to mount onto a cement wall will associated instructions. One bit of advise, read the instruction booklet all the way through to get an idea of what the order each step is about. For example; installing the locking screw is the very step after the TV is attached to the mounting plate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my TV. Straight forward installation. I bought this at Costco. After reading some of the reviews about missing hardware and difficult installation, I was worried, but everything went smoothly. I had all of the parts. The instructions were clear. No problems. I like this product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Instruction suck Just bought this at Costco and I was looking for video instructions. They have a website to lead you to the instructions but the website shows a different model than what is on the box. There is also a phone number on the back of the box which is discontinued it would be nice to have a little back up. Even a simple video which I thought they had according to the back of the box. I am taking this back to Costco I do not recommend it

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flawless My partner bought this from Costco in the UK, to mount a 32" on her bedroom wall. Despite the sites compatibility checker saying it wouldn't work with her 100x200 beds TV it did, only incompatible aspect was a lack of M5 screws (M4-M6 were included). Mount went up fine and has an adjustment screw on back for post installation levelling which the instructions lack any useful info about other than turn with a screwdriver (loosen lock nut first when doing this) other than some silly issues it is a great mount.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wrong Screws, what a disappointment We bought a TV and mounting bracket at Costco, came home all ready to put it on the wall only to find out that like the other person above, we did not get the right screws. But unlike him I don't have the ones needed in the garage, so it's back to Costco to return this useless mount. Also, the screws are very poorly labeled. Yes, they do tell you that they are 2" long or whatever, but the labels in the instructions have no relationship to the labels on the hardware pack. It can be overcome, but omg, why make it hard? And the installation video was useless too. We have the SMF218, but it shows a generic video that doesn't help us find the screws we need. If he had said, "Now get the 1.5" #8 machine screws and attach the...." I could have simply gone to Home Depot and gotten them. But now I'm just tired of this thing. No more SANUS for me.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Must have a centered stud We like the Sanus tv mount products, but please be aware with the single-stud mount model, your wall stud must be perfectly centered to where you want to mount the tv. The mount has no post-install horizontal adjustments to help center. Unfortunately, our only wall studs were severely mid-centered from where we want to mount the tv on the wall, so this mount will not work. It would be helpful to include this type of information on the box, so consumers are aware at purchase time. We returned this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn’t be happier! Bought this from Costco for our 58” Samsung even though it listed up to 55” tv's. The mount fit perfectly. Amazing assortment of fasteners included. So easy to install. Love the height finder app. Got a 65” we’re gonna mount now.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wrong Screws! Watch out--The screws don't fit the brackets. I had to rummage through my garage to find 5 screws that match the holes on THEIR tv bracket. Would have given a higher rating but their simplicity of instillation was compounded by my frustration. It works though.
