Sonax E-5155-MP Black 32
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Simple. Does the Job. Good Value especially since I bought on Shell Shocker. VESA mounts line up -- nice when standards actually do benefit. Hit three 16" center joists -- good thing they were properly aligned. Samsung 50" LED now on wall

Cons: None really.
No left-right turning, just some up down tilt, but that is all I wanted and as advertised, so no eggs off

Other Thoughts: So close to wall not a lot of room for hands to tighten tilt adjustment knobs. Had to swap one HDMI w big moulded ends for a more standard one (thus preserving one sideways port for later use). Would hold up TV + my couch with 6 big lag screws in studs. Used to say good to 50" TV now says 65" -- New LED TVs are lighter than couple of years ago -- check spacing and width if you have a TV over 50"

Rosewill RHRC-11001 - Windows Vista / 7 / 8 MCE Infrared Remote Control with Learning Function
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Integrates with my Set Top Box and Windows MCE
Can access my cable company guide AND the Media Center Guide both.
Blaster runs my Motorola DCX 700-M unit -- old TV tuner card controller would not work w MCE. Can use keyboard or this remote to run STB.

Cons: none yet except the DCX700 needs a pretty slow IR signal so could be faster channel changes... Didn't get fairly common shell shocker or other discount price.

Other Thoughts: Had an analog tuner card but went to HD TV in other room and wanted access to all the channels I was paying for. Instead of $20/month for Cable PVR, I bought this and use it to run a $9.95/month second set top box. Use S-video in to my old TV tuner card in PC and record decent (not full HD) quality of air TV May upgrade to HD input device when a decent one becomes affordable. Samsung TV came w streaming software for my PC so can do full PVR stuff now.

Sonax E-5155-MP Black 32
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Simple design, VESA on Samsung 50" lined up -- hooray for standards. Spans 3 X 16" center studs so could hang my TV and my couch from the 16 lag screws. Shell shocker price made it even nicer. Came w lots of options for attachment of brackets to TV. Level on wall plate a plus. With brackets on TV and plate on wall, simple to hang or take down again.

Cons: Mounted TV tilts up and down but no left to right movement -- which I did not want or need. May embarrass friends who spent $100 to $200 for a unit.

Other Thoughts: So close to wall that had to swap one HDMI cable w long moulded end for a simpler one. Can even be tight to adjust tilt lock thumbscrews and the mounting screws to lock on to wall unit. But hard to be both close to wall and lots of space for fat hands
