PROS

The model comes with a motor that you can control from a distance using an IR remote. It includes a number of memory settings that you can program to save a number of viewing angles. Once you're done watching the TV, the model conceals the display against the ceiling at a single push of a button.

CONS

Some 23" panels do not have the right mounting holes for 200x200mm interface.

OUR VERDICT

VIVO MOUNT-E-FD55 might just very well be the best ceiling TV mount for people who just want to relax at the end of a long day with an unprecedented level of comfort and don't mind paying the somewhat elevated price for it.

PROS

The whole thing rotates 360 degrees to accommodate a number of viewing angles and tilts 15 degrees up or down to reduce glare. Featuring support for VESA mounting holes up to 680x460mm, the model in question will be able to fit not just the majority of your standard 37" to 60" TV sets but also some of the 75" panels.

CONS

Won't work with some 55-75 inch TVs over manufactured 3 years ago.

OUR VERDICT

VideoSecu MPC53B ceiling mount TV bracket fits flat ceilings as well as vaulted ceilings. So if you happen to have a particularly large panel, this is the model to look out for. If your TV was manufactured less than 4-5 years ago, there's next to no chance that it won't fit this TV mount.

PROS

Since the ceiling TV mount is capable of withstanding a load of up to 132 lbs, you won't have to worry about it being unable to support your TV. The ceiling plate can be adjusted from 0 to 90 degrees. That means that you'll have the option of attaching it to a flat ceiling, a sloped ceiling, or a wall just as well.

CONS

The instruction manual isn't particularly comprehensible. 

OUR VERDICT

Loctek CM2 is the sort of fold down ceiling TV mount that won't lose to any model when it comes to versatility as it will be a perfect fit for offices, bars, restaurants, dental clinics, fitness centers, grocery stores, medical offices, and the comforts of your own home.

PROS

The pole (also known as the arm) boasts a sleek silver color that perfectly contrasts the black brackets as the latter match the majority of panels on the market. The folding mechanism will allow you to easily move both the TV and the mount out of the way in order to make some additional space and avoid injuries.

CONS

The maximum weight capacity is limited. 

OUR VERDICT

Mount-It! MI-4222 is a compact ceiling TV mount that will prove to be a great addition to any office space or a kitchen. Despite the relatively small size, the steel construction will be able to withstand a fairly decent load.

PROS

You will be able to adjust the height from about 20 inches all the way to 55. The latter option will prove to be useful for premises with exceptionally high ceilings. The ability to tilt this ceiling TV mount 15 degrees forward and 5 degrees backward will allow you to avoid back and neck pains in the long run.

CONS

The surface is prone to scratches. 

OUR VERDICT

We would recommend the VideoSecu MLCE7-1O2 retractable TV ceiling mount to those customers who are looking to put a TV set in an office where there's a limited amount of space, though it will be a decent fit for household applications as well.

VIVO MOUNT-E-FD55

An Impressive Device on It's Own

VIVO MOUNT-E-FD55 isn't just some sort of a simple tool you use to mount a much more sophisticated piece of technology to the ceiling. What we have here could definitely be classified as a fairly sophisticated device on its own. It comes with a motor that you can control from a distance using an IR remote. The said part of the package includes a number of memory settings that you can program to save a number of viewing angles. Once you're done watching the TV, the model conceals the display against the ceiling at a single push of a button. That way, you won't just be able to save some space and make your room look much less cluttered but also do so without getting up from the bed.

Other than that, this motorized ceiling tv mount doesn't differ that much from other similar offers on the market. The steel frame does not trail behind in terms of durability and will be able to handle up to 66 pounds of weight. The folding design that we mentioned earlier features a -75° to 0° tilt. You will also be able to change the height at which your television set will be hanging from the ceiling, from just 4 inches all the way to 28. The 3° level adjustment will also offer some additional options in terms of positioning. Finally, we said at the start of this review that this isn't just a TV mount but a sophisticated piece of technology on its own, so the manufacturers made sure to incorporate sleek design solutions that will make this model a good fit for any modern home or office environment.

In conclusion, VIVO MOUNT-E-FD55 is probably the best ceiling TV mount for people who just want to relax at the end of a long day with an unprecedented level of comfort and don't mind paying the somewhat elevated price for it.

VideoSecu MPC53B

Large Mount for Large Panels

With TVs growing in size, it's no wonder that the manufacturers of TV mounts have to respond in order to match those sizes. One example of those manufacturers are the people behind VideoSecu MPC53B, a TV mount that will be able to accommodate some of the biggest panels on the market. Featuring support for VESA mounting holes from 200x200mm to 680x460mm, the model in question will be able to fit not just the majority of your standard 37" to 60" TV sets but also some of the 75" panels, as long the latter weren't manufactured more than 4 years ago as these older models seldom come with the right mounting holes.

Of course, in order to support those huge TV sets, the ceiling mount TV bracket from VideoSecu would have to feature the sort of frame that would be able to withstand that load. Which is why the aforementioned manufacturers didn't stop at your usual load capacity and made sure their product would be capable of handling up to 110 lbs of weight. In terms of height, the model retracts the TV from 26" to 35.4" from the ceiling in 1.5" increments, meaning that you will easily be able to find the right viewing height. And if you aren't just looking to install this thing in your bedroom but rather in a place where you and other people tend to watch TV at different angles, the whole thing rotates 360 degrees to accommodate a number of viewing angles and tilts 15 degrees up or down to reduce glare and, again, to help you find the right viewing angle.

So, what else is there to say? VideoSecu MPC53B ceiling mount TV bracket fits flat ceilings as well as vaulted ceilings. So if you happen to have a particularly large panel, this is the model to look out for. If your TV was manufactured less than 4-5 years ago, there's next to no chance that it won't fit this TV mount.

Loctek CM2

Put It Anywhere

There are so many different flat screen TV sets out there that finding the right ceiling TV mount can often prove to be a bit of a challenge. That said, with mounts like Loctek CM2, the said problem is about to become obsolete.

The most defining characteristic of this model is easily its versatility as it will be able to fit just about any TV out there with mounting holes ranging from 100x100mm to 600x400mm. That means you're unlikely to have any issues with an average panel that features a 32-inch diagonal or with a huge television set that boasts 65 inches in display size. Of course, those panels tend to weigh quite a few pounds, but since this ceiling TV mount is capable of withstanding a load of up to 132 lbs, you won't have to worry about it being unable to support your TV.

Though all of what we've just said is pretty impressive on its own and should be enough to justify a title of one of the most versatile TV mounts, we would also like to point out the fact that the ceiling plate can be adjusted from 0 to 90 degrees. That means you'll have the option of attaching it to a flat ceiling, a sloped ceiling, or a wall just as well. And while we're on the subject of adjustments, the opportunities to change the height from 20 to 32 inches and to rotate the TV 360 degrees will also be presented to you.

All things considered, Loctek CM2 is the sort of fold down ceiling TV mount that won't lose to any model when it comes to versatility as it will be a perfect fit for offices, bars, restaurants, dental clinics, fitness centers, grocery stores, medical offices, and the comforts of your own home.

Mount-It! MI-4222

Improve Your Kitchen

Mount-It! MI-4222 is a small TV mount that will be a good fit for a kitchen or a small office. It is VESA compatible with brackets that work with the following mounting holes: 75x75mm, 100x100mm, 200x100mm, and 200x200mm. Of course, its maximum load capacity is somewhat limited compared to other options on the market but you could hardly hold it against the model in question as it's designed to accommodate smaller television sets with diagonals between 17 and 37 inches. Having said that, the black heavy gauge steel construction that the mount incorporates will still be able to support almost 10 times its weight up to 44 lbs, not too shabby if we do say so ourselves.

And it isn't just the mount itself but also all of the complementary pieces that are comprised of quality rugged materials. Those complementary pieces include all of the necessary mounting hardware. We would also like to give a quick shoutout to the design since the model is actually quite the looker. The pole (also known as the arm) boasts a sleek silver color that perfectly contrasts the black brackets as the latter match the majority of panels on the market.

With all of that out the way, the model includes just about everything you would want out of a TV mount. The folding mechanism will allow you to easily move both the TV and the mount out of the way in order to make some additional space and avoid injuries. Finally, height, tilt, and swivel adjusting capabilities are all there as well.

To rephrase our earlier point, Mount-It! MI-4222 is a compact ceiling TV mount that will prove to be a great addition to any office space or a kitchen. Despite the relatively small size, the steel construction will be able to withstand a fairly decent load.

VideoSecu MLCE7-1O2

Height Options Up the Wazoo

If you don't feel like investing in a new flat screen TV but would like to shake things up and introduce a slight change to your everyday entertainment routine, VideoSecu MLCE7-1O2 is the way to go. However, if you already have a pretty good setup at home and you're actually looking to put a TV in your workshop or an office where the available space is somewhat limited, you still can't go wrong with this one. It may not bring anything particularly new to the table but what it does offer will likely prove to be enough for your average customer.

The adjustable ceiling plate that it comes with can attach to flat ceilings as well as sloped ceilings, so there's no need to panic just yet if you happen to occupy a space with an uneven ceiling. You will also be able to adjust the height from about 20 inches all the way to 55. Naturally, the latter option will prove to be useful for premises with exceptionally high ceilings. The ability to tilt this ceiling TV mount 15 degrees forward and 5 degrees backward will allow you to avoid back and neck pains in the long run.

In terms of application, the model is VESA compatible with mounting holes ranging from 100x100mm to 400x400mm. Those mounting holes are generally present in television sets with display sizes ranging between 26" and 55". All in all, we would recommend the VideoSecu MLCE7-1O2 retractable TV ceiling mount to those customers who are looking to put a TV set in an office where there's a limited amount of space though it will be a decent fit for household applications as well.

What Is a Ceiling TV Mount?

Some of us may not be particularly proud of that but very few people do not enjoy spending a large chunk of their pastime in front of a television screen. As much as other hobbies may seem or even be more productive, there's nothing wrong with lying in a comfortable position in your bed and enjoying a particularly exciting television series or a movie with an intriguing premise. And even though there's a myriad of ways you can position your television set to achieve a more comfortable position, none of them come close to what a ceiling TV mount can offer. With a variety of height and angle adjustments, you will have a virtually limitless amount of options in terms of positioning your flat screen TV. Of course, there are plenty of different displays out there, so you will have to make sure that the TV mount supports the right VESA interface and the size of your model. When it comes to the installation process, you should be able to set the whole thing up with relative ease regardless of your expertise in the DIY field as the majority of mounts out there already come with all the necessary hardware.

That said, if you're still not convinced a ceiling mount is the right fit for you, you could always get a wall mount. And if your television set is old and unimpressive, we would suggest looking through our review of the best flat screen TVs and Smart TVs.
