This review is from: SIIG CE-MT0912-S1 Black 36" - 65" Full-Motion TV Mount
Pros: The product is constructed of heavy gage steel and is very solid. When properly attached to the wall it should hold almost any large flat screen HDTV. I install two of these on 60" Zenith/LG plasma HDTVs. They weigh in at 85lbs each. The bar mounting system on these are really great. Worked very nicely. Locking mechinism is simple and straight forward. Any one with a little mechanical skill can put these up even without the instructions. All in all a very good product for the price, and the heaviest I have seen.
Cons: As has been mentioned by earlier commenters, the instruction sheets are a little vague, but not incomprehensible. The illistrations could have been better and larger. Study them well with the parts layed out before you start working and you should be OK.
Other Thoughts: We installed these 60" 85lb beasts in a church auditorium 9ft above the floor. Without that hanging bar mounting system it would have been near impossible. All the other of this type were way overpriced. Will buy these again if the occasion arises. Well worth the price.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BYTECC HM-100 100 ft. Black HDMI male to male HDMI High Speed Male to Male Cable M-M
Pros: At this point, I would say NONE.
The cable looks heavy and robust, and contrary to the other reviews here, the plugs held up just fine and does not seem all that flimsy. However that is not the point of this review.
Cons: Now to the Point. As many people who are DIY inclined, I thought I knew what I was doing when I bought this cable (two of them) for the project I was working on that needs to send an A/V signal a long distance. Thinking that I knew was my first mistake. Buying this cable was my second. This cable is not "HDMI Certified" according to the standards set by the organizations that promalagate these standards. It does not meet the signal transfer parameters required to meet HDMI certification. I would say that if anyone could get any HDMI signal out the far end of this cable, you have done better than I could and I used an HDMI signal amplifier to boot. We used several different pieces of equipment to send the signal and used them with the amplifier and was unable to get a hot enough signal to work the HDTV monitors we were trying to get the signal to. The electrical continuity checked out fine, but the signal lose was monsterous, even after adjusting the EQ spud to all its settings.
Other Thoughts: Other items of note: This cable is "one way only" and will not communicate back to the HDMI signal source any information sent from the receiving equipment. This makes it HDCP "non-compliant" as well as not being able to transmit a normal HDMI signal. So, this cable is not for hooking up the usual Blu Ray players and HDTV devices one would normally think about when reading the promo for this product. All the promo information is extremely missleading, and may be somewhat falsified from my point of view. If you are trying to send HDMI a long distance (over 40ft) using normal consumer A/V devices, then you should look into HDMI over wireless systems or using one of the HDMI over Cat5 (ethernet), which is the route I was forced to take. Since I had tried to solve the problem thinking it was device related, by the time I discovered the truth about these cables it was to late to send them back for RMA. Please do your reaserch on HDMI ahead of time. DO NOT BUY THESE CABLES.READ FULL REVIEW
