Photos and one of the reviews indicate that this mount is intended for the solid wall installation, not a drywall.

As with most of these mounts, drywall into a stud is needed. Also, don't read into the size recommended as the 400 x 400 VESA is a standard for many larger TVs and the weight of the TV is the most critical factor. You don't want to attach your investment to something that may fall out of the wall.

mounted on a single stud? Feels risky...

Any deals (or even just recommendations) for a larger mount? 65", mounted into drywall (studs) with some ability to center it, and full motion for angle/twist.

I'll also also be looking to hide the cables in the wall, with something like this:

If you scroll through the product images, you'll see a pic taken head on.

It appears the review is correct: looks the mounting points seem to be wider than 2", so mounting to a single stud may not be possible.

You'll probably need a masonry wall or will want to sandwich additional 2x4s to a single stud in order to mount.

If you're mounting into a stud with lag screws, as this requires, the metal would likely bend before the screw would ever give way. This could probably handle much more, the weight limitations are due to the full extension feature.

I agree weight is the most important factor, but this type of mount, with the little bar extensions would be more susceptible to size than the extension mounts with a solid plate mounting to the tv. This one seems to be a solid mount, unfortunately I couldn't get free shipping:

Shipping appears free on a few of their tv mounts.

Depending how close they are, you could angle the screws a bit. This mount isn't relying on the screw's torque against the stud, more so as a hanging support.

Also could drill a couple holes and mount it directly on the center (the center section is a bit off the wall, so you might want to pad the gap with a shim where you screw, so you don't bend the mount's metal)

Also, it has 8 mount points. I don't think it will be going anywhere if you mount one side directly to the stud with two+ screws and then stabilize with a couple good anchors on the other side.

I have a similar mount with a 55" vizio i felt the same - the screws that go into the wall are pretty darn big and about 5" apart (one above the other) and its been an awesome mount for about 2 years now. Awesome price here thanks op

Anyone have a suggestion for a mount that extends out much further?

Most newer TVs are light enough for one stud to hold them. I have an older 40in TV that weighs more than my current 55in(55in is under 35lbs w/o stand). The 40in hangs on a single stud in the bedroom, & is still as sturdy as the day I hung it there, over 2 years ago.
That said, I've never seen a mount quite like this one. Most of them mount on a single stud, or are wide enough to mount on two studs.

Monoprice is good until they aren't and you have to deal with their customer service. Trust me. Not worth the effort.

A review from the site: "Purchased this item only to discover it is solid concrete or brick wall mount only. At the time of purchase (and this time of this review), there is nothing in the description that indicates this limited mount solution. Attempted return, but shipping coverage not offered and it would cost more to return than the item itself. Disappointing."

I have this mount and I wish I'd purchased another one that's more sturdy. Specifically, TVs that are well within the load limits of the mount sag and are challenging to stay level as you swivel the mount. Still a good deal, but I would only use this mount on smaller/lighter TVs, like not more than 20-30 lbs.

Also to be clear you can absolutely mount this on a drywall wall, concrete, etc. The play that mine is exhibiting is actually on the TV end of the mount - the portion attached to the wall is very stable and secure
