Great that it has a built in spirit level
I bought this to mount my Sony tv. Unforunatley I needed an adapter to be able to do this which cost additional money on top of this purchase but overall I am pleased with how easy this was to mount on the wall. It's easy to use and position and the tv can easily be removed from the bracket as and when needed -

Does the job, but finger tip tilt?
I chose this bracket from the limited range on offer. As it happened, it matched the screen size of my TV perfectly.
Structure-wise it's well made, but as I'll mention later its design is lacking.
The actual fitting to the TV and wall is straightforward enough. However, when fitting the brackets to the TV make sure you fit them with the adjusting knobs on the outside.
Fitting the main part of the bracket to the wall involves drilling four holes, either into brickwork or into plasterboard depending on your wall structure. That will also be the deciding factor as to whether you can make use of any of the screws etc. supplied. I had to buy fittings suitable for a plasterboard wall. Just make sure that any fittings you DO buy are no more than 6mm diameter, otherwise they won't fit through the slots on the base plate. I had to widen the slots to 8mm as the fittings bought at B&Q (Gripit) were wrongly described on their website as being 6mm. Bad show, B&Q.
The plate comes ready fitted with a spirit level. Don't trust it - mine wobbled vertically +/- a millimetre which to eagle-eyed critics would be enough to make a difference. Fortunately I had foreseen this and had already stuck on my own trusted spirit level, so I know for sure mine's horizontal. The TV, with brackets fitted, hooks onto this frame. Screws are then tightened from underneath (long screwdriver needed here.)
Now comes the fun bit. Box says: Fingertip tilt mechanism; not so. In fact, it involves a fair bit of heaving, pulling, tugging and quite a few expletives and I STILL can't adjust the thing to my satisfaction. As it happens, I will have to remove it from the wall temporarily in order to hide the cabling, so I'll deal with this matter again later.
Now then, what's the popular phrase? Does what it says on the tin? Not completely enough for me.

Does the Job...
Found it reasonably easy to fit. But the screws for fixing the bracket to the TV were far too long and I needed to buy some nuts to effectively shorten them to the correct size. AND the screws to lock the tilt angle were very tight and hard to reach when adjusting the tilt angle - in fact so tight I just let it droop to it's lowest angle, luckily it works for us ...
