Choosing a TV mount for fireplace

Any brand or style recommendations for a tv mount for a brick fireplace (that will have shiplap over it)? I'm looking for a fully maneuverable one. I don't think I need the drop down feature since the TV will have a mantle under it (not sure how far they come out before dropping).

Bonus karma points if you point towards a great deal/price or just any general tips as well when shopping for one. I have a 55" TV now I'll put up - but likely getting a 65-75 at some point.

I’m currently using this mount from PrimeCables($40) on my 55” Sony LED(works up to 70” or 120lbs) Me and my buddy had it up in just over half an hour (making sure all was good) Mount has been great so far, but my one complaint is that the screws they give you for wall mounting (at least the drywall screw we used, but provide a concrete/brick set of screws as well) kind of stripped on us when using the power tools to get them nice and tight to the wall. Maybe I needed a bigger pilot hole for the screws but think it’s worth mentioning. Been over a year and still up there and love being able to swing back and forth, side to side and slightly up and down too.

Is there an articulating arm that you can go near 90 degree with - or more of a tilt left/right? That seems like a great price

Just taken from where I watch tv on my bed. That was the widest it tilted sideways before the tv touched the wall itself, taken from same spot on my bed. Comes out from the wall about 16” and also tilts down I think 10-15 degrees
