Arlen Schweiger of Electronic House recently published his review of OmniMount’s Power55 in the July/August issue. Several months ago, Bob Bennett and his staff at MHL Security and Sound went out to Arlen’s house to install the mount in his home for the review.
Here are a few snippets of Arlen’s review:
“My home is tiny, so every square foot is precious. My viewing appetite, on the other hand, is so large that our console-mounted 50-inch plasma TV overwhelms the family room. Reviewing OmniMount’s Power55 motorized wall mount – one that tilts, pans and swivels – presented an ideal way to measure its space-saving benefits and other measures.”
“Because the mount tilts, MHL set the left and right horizontal limits as close to the wall without bumping, and they programmed two viewing position presets into the remote. Creating a preset, including that of a ‘home’ position, is as easy as pressing a button down for five seconds. The motion of the mount is slick, but not blazing, about as fast as you’d want something carrying a 110-pound TV to go. It takes just nine seconds to move from centered and sung to fully angled so we can watch from our dining room. Now that’s appetizing.”
“My Hitachi is at the limits of the Power55’s 110-pound weight capacity, but in several months of daily use, there’s been no doubting its sturdiness.”
Arlen gave a great depiction of the strengths of the Power55 in his full review, and we appreciate him taking the time to do the review. During the installation, we sent our own Katie Short to video document the whole thing. Below is the video from the installation of the Power55.
