Hi everyone,

I just got a great deal on a Vizio 55" LCD TV and found a killer deal on a motorized Omnimount Power40 for $72 shipped! Now I read that this motorized mount can handle TVs up to 46" and weight up to 66LBS so I was wondering, if I used this on my 55" what will be the "side effects"??

I suspect that it will not move as much in all four direction as it would with a smaller tv but the weight of my 55" is a pound more but I doubt that would be an issue...

I know you're probably wondering why I did not just buy the Power55 mount which is made for bigger units BUT the price difference is like $250!! So I am seeing if this will work out and wondering what you pro guys opinions are?

It won't be covered under any warranty if it falls or breaks down. Range of motion probably won't be much of an issue due to the weight being negligible. You may have more of a problem with getting the TV plate which adapts the tv to be mounted might not fit as that TV could use a non-standard Vesa pattern or the standard for larger tvs and the mount wont match up.

It should work, I would be careful about the range of motion especially on any of the extremes of left/right or up/down.
