Looking for the best TV wall mount for your flat-screen? Here are the top 10 best overall TV mounts that will provide you with full flexibility.
We hear you — which one is the BEST? It’s this heavy-duty full motion TV wall mount.
Say what you want but in this day and age, there’s no reason why the TV should stand on a table. Ever since the first flat-screen came out, it begs for a wall-mounted setup. Otherwise, you’re just wasting space and depriving yourself of the ideal viewing experience.
How many times have you felt neck or eye stress during binge-watching? It’s not because you’ve spent 5 hours watching the TV (well, only partly), but mainly because of the wrong TV positioning.
That’s why we always recommend getting a tilting mount at the very least, or better yet, a full-motion mount. In some cases, like hanging the TV in the corner, you won’t be able to do it without a full-motion mount at all.
And yes, there are fixed mounts that provide a flush look, but you won’t be able to adjust the viewing angle and that’s game-changing. The only caveat with full-motion mounts is when you have drywall and no wall studs so mount it on. The best tilt mounts will allow you to hang a TV on drywall up to a certain weight limit. And you will still be able to adjust the viewing angle.
With full-motion mounts, you will be able to hang the TV anywhere, at any angle, and you will be able to adjust it for the optimal viewing angle, eliminate glare, and level it perfectly.
Finally, you need to note that all mounts use the VESA mounting standard. This is simply a pattern of drill holes that allow you to attach the bracket to a TV of any size. While most mounts are universal, mismatches happen occasionally so you need to check if the mount of your choice matches your TV.
Here’s your best TV wall mount (full-motion) and a few runner-ups if you care to explore. These include shopping links (they earn us a commission at no expense to you.)

You do need to drill holes in a wall to hang a TV mount so it doesn’t go unaffected. But if done correctly, you are left with just a few holes in the wall. If the mount is removed later on, the holes may be filled with a filler and painted over. This may become an issue only if the wall has a wallpaper or mural.
A wall mounted TV should be tilted to find the correct viewing angle. It is almost impossible to find one correct angle with a fixed mount because it doesn’t give you an option to adjust it after the installation is complete.
Yes, the full-motion wall mounts are excellent for their flexibility. You can mount any TV anywhere on the wall (including corners) using a full-motion mount.
If you install them properly, TV wall mounts leave only small holes.
It is always recommended to drill holes and properly attach a TV mount to the wall for safety. Alternatives such as command strips are not designed to hold a lot of weight and may not hold the TV properly. If you can’t drill holes, consider a hybrid TV stand that’s essentially a bare-bones frame that lifts the TV to the required height.
A 65-inch TV weights too much to be mounted on drywall. Most mounting products will indicate this. So you need to find the wall studs in order to mount such a big TV unit on drywall.
The easiest way to hide the cords on a wall mounted TV is to install the mount on a power outlet. Most mounting brackets support this setup. However, such a power outlet should be planned at the required height for the TV from the beginning. If it’s not available (it’s lower to the ground), use cable management products that cover bundled cords from the view.
