    great video, I have a 60lb 55″ Plasma. Was going to go ahead with the
    plywood on two steel studs, but considering that its articulating (need it
    to swivel 30 deg) and a pretty heavy TV, I’m a bit nervous. Would I be
    better off with floor to ceiling plywood?

    I’ve seen elsewhere cutting out the drywall and putting the plywood
    straight on the studs, but a bit leary as its a rental apartment.

    would appreciate any feedback

    Really great video. I have to do this for a friend, and have to admit I’m
    rather nervous about screwing it up. I’m not useless when it comes to
    tools, but you know how it is when your doing something for the first time
    and it’s not yours to top it off.

    My tv mount is not wide like this one. It is vertical with an extension
    arm and swivel at the end. Should I still do the plywood on the two metal
    studs and then attach the mount to one side on the metal stud? In total
    the size of the t.v. is .31″Wx21″L and at the max 30 lbs.

    you taking the time to do this video.

    Jon, to answer your question. I would use a 30 inch plywood length
    attaching to 2 wall studs. Height will depend on your wall bracket and use
    3/4 inch plywood, NOT particle board. On the TV wall bracket attach to at
    least one wall stud and use the snap toggle bolts like I did for the whole
    job.

    Michael , Yes I drilled right in the stud to put the snap toggle anchor. I
    would have done so on both ends but could not because the TV wall bracket
    was less than 24 inch. That is why I used the 3/4 inch plywood.

    I’d like to mount an 80″ 125 lb flat screen TV on a wall with metal studs
    spaced 24″ apart. How big of a piece of plywood would you recommend I use
    to do this? Thickness as well as length and width. Also, is plywood what I
    should be using? Or is there another wood that would be better suited for
    this? The TV is 71″ Wide by 42″ tall. Any other tips on mounting a TV this
    big before I start? I plan to start this week. Thanks! Jon
