1) make sure it's rated for the weight of the actual TV, regardless of size
2) make sure it supports the correct VESA (mounting) pattern
3) make sure it will extend/rotate/tilt/swivel how you want

Regarding #3 - how much will you use that feature? Are you just setting it in place, adjusting, and leaving - or will you be constantly moving it in/out, etc.

I have a 65" TV mounted above a fireplace and have an articulating mount but I only use it to clean.

The reviews of what you posted all look good; for such large TV's I'm not so keen on the single-rotate type of units (e.g. the Echogear and Mount It units you posted) simply because I don't trust that final "knuckle" with the weight of a 60-80 lb TV hanging 16-20" from the wall. The units should be rated for full extension though.

thanks. I have a brightly lit room during the day. I feel I may end up moving it sometimes if I am at home during weekends

I've installed a few other mounts from monoprice, and they were good quality steel, good tight tolerances. I don't know about that specific one, but with that much flexibility, I'd say that's a great price.
