    Can someone recommend a swivel wall mount that is very low profile when pushed back against the wall? Ideally less than 1.5" and less than $100.

    I don't think it exists, by design. If there's only 1.5" of space, how can it swivel? I guess it would only swivel 1.5" then hit the wall.

    they pull out on an arm then swivel, like this one.

    This is exactly what I'm looking for, just way too pricey. I'm trying to find an off brand or something that will be cheaper

    Did you buy a mount from Monoprice? Which one?

    Recessed Adjustable Tilting/Swiveling Wall Mount Bracket for LCD Plasma (Max 198Lbs, 37~60inch)


    This one. It's recessed, so it'll be a bigger pain installing, but the price was right.

    By recessed, does that mean the drywall has to be cut out? I'm also looking into wall mounts. Thanks.

    Yes, they had a ton of options, but none that sat very close to the wall without cutting into the wall, like the one from Sanus. My TV is less than 1' thick so I really wanted something that held it tight to the wall but also could extend and swivel. I had planned on running the cables behind the drywall anyway, so for me it just means the hole will be bigger.

    I was looking at your mount last night, and noticed that you have to cut the middle stud out. Did you see that? That's a lot of extra time and work involved.
