TV Wall Mount Reccomendation

First new TV in over a decade and need a recommendation on a mounting a 85" Sony on an articulating mount. Concerned about the stability when moving the TV and the mounts ability to maintain the TV level when extended.

I've narrowed it down to:
Sanus from Costco, https://www.costco.ca/sanus-slf226-b3-f ... 61444.html

Prime Cable, https://www.primecables.ca/p-359307-cab ... rimecables

Monoprice from PC, https://www.primecables.ca/p-359030-cab ... -monoprice

Got the Sanus for a buddy with a 55”. Seems solid and I’d buy for myself.

As long as it's within specs, buy the cheaper one ie Primecables.

If you don't need to articulate it much, I probably wouldn't. ie Usually most people just tilt it left/right....don't usually need to extend it out. How far do you intend on articulating it?
FYI if you don't need that full swivel, I'd pick a different mount.

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

Just to note, we have a Primecable articulating mount on a heavier 70" at my work It gets moved 5-10 times a month (angled out - so one arm extended) and over the last year or 2, the extended arm has worn and tv is no longer leveled.

That said, I have the same mount on a 47" at home with no issues, but it gets moved maybe a handful of times a year. Personally I always feel like I'm going to break the TV moving it and that's only 47". With a panel twice the size, while I'm sure it's fine but I personally wouldn't do it.

For our commerial AV projects, we always use Peerless.

Mine sits over my tv stand and pulls out to sit flush with the front of it and has since 2007. It’s about 16-20” from the wall at all times. My Polk speakers are the same depth.

I would recommend Kanto and the next being Sanus, both from Costco.

+1. I have a full motion Kanto for a 75”. Solid as a rock

Thanks for all the replies, i'll probably end up with a Kanto or Sanus from Costco.

I don't necessarily need the articulating, but price wise a good quality articulating isn't much more than a fix/tilt mount from the same manufacturer. So I don't mind spending the money for the once or twice a year I might use it.

Same boat as you, assuming you also got a TV from BF. I ended up getting a Kanto FMX3 for my 65" - pretty highly recommended and great reviews. I have a Sanus full motion upstairs for our 49" QLED and it's a bit tough to move. The way I figure, since it's Costco I can easily return if not happy with it
