Optoma Data and Home Theater projectors weighing less than 50 lbs.
Warranty & Returns
The BM-5001U Universal Ceiling Mount provides unparalleled versatility to fit virtually all Optoma Data and Home Theater projectors weighing less than 50 lbs. Quick and accurate image alignments are a breeze to achieve using the two adjustment knobs. Simply adjust tilt ? 20? and roll ? 10? with a Phillips screwdriver or by hand. The time-saving, pre-assembled design minimizes installation steps. A quick-release feature allows the projector to slide in and out of the track, simplifying access for servicing the projector or swapping out the lamp. The cable management feature keeps unsightly cable tangles out of sight. These valuable features are packaged in a sleek black design to look great anywhere - in your home, office or classroom. Security hardware is also included to prevent theft.
This review is from: Optoma BM-5001U Low Profile Universal Projector Ceiling Mount - Black
Pros: It works, and is easy to adjust after installation. You can also remove the projector easily after installation to service it (more on that below).
Cons: This mount only has adjustments for up/down and left/right tilt, no left/right pan. It is possible to adjust that during installation, but not after.
The part of the mount that allows the projector to be easily removed post installation does not appear to hold tightly, allowing the projector to wiggle when touched.
I purchased this mount with my Optoma HD33. This mount is recommended for that projector on Optoma's website. I went to install it and realized the HD33 is not listed in the mount instruction manual. I called up the mount manufacturer and was told that Optoma has not yet sent them proper documentation to update their manual, but that the mount should work and to just "try and figure it out". Annoyed I tried calling Optoma and was told to call the mount manufacturer. Informing the support staff that I already had they agreed and said to just try and figure it out. Ultimately I got it together but was not happy hanging my expensive new projector from a MacGyvered installation.
