I was just looking up the MantelMounts and it seems like they are Black Friday pricing or better. The site says this is the lowest price the MM700 has ever been. Shipping is free.

I got the MM540. It seem to be the sweet spot and has certainly the most reviews on Amazon out of these three.

MM340 Standard $229.00 $217.00
MM540 Enhanced $399 $299
MM700 Pro $549 $399 Expired, now $449

I guess the special aspect is that this flip/folds down?

So when watching you pull tv down to lower height and then when not in use or when having a fire you raise it up?

Seems like a lot of work. And not very aesthetically pleasing when down bc you can see the wall mount?

A lot of new house designs basically force you to put a TV above the fireplace if you have a great room and that is something I didn't really want to do. I've never liked watching TVs above a fireplace at friends' houses - how you have to look upward the whole time. I'm hoping that since this is well built and easy to operate, the inconvenience of having to move it before and after watching will be worth the effort to avoid feeling like I'm in the first row of a movie theater all of the time. We'll see I guess!

I have seen at one of friends home and it is better for your neck especially for binge watchers. It is definitely not aesthetically pleasing to watch mount behind the TV but, if your tv is bigger size then you do not see much of the mount. When I will change my TV to bigger size, will have to mount tv higher up above my fireplace. At that time, am buying this or similar.

I have one on my back patio and love it. I pull it down so the TV is more eye level then having to look up higher. I push it up when it is going to storm.

First time I'd used one of these was at an airbnb lodge type home we stayed at. It had 15'+ ceilings and a mantel that was about 6' high so that tv was way too high. I thought the mount was darn cool. Smooth and stable. Because of tv size and angle from where we were sitting we couldnt really see the mount. Even if we could it was still a much much better experience than if it was in a regular mount since even if we watched standing up we would have had to crane our necks. That's just silly and wrong.

Told everyone I was getting one for home asap. At home though I have a pretty typical setup: 8'ish high ceilings, typical mantel height, 65" tv, etc. I still hate the angle but just couldnt justify to myself the expense for the ability to lower a foot or so. Maybe if it was $170, or if I watched more tv in that room, tho. But definitely would get even at regular price if I had higher ceilings and mantel. Worth it in long-run IMO.

Thanks for sharing OP. Was nice to see this pop up in SD.

Years ago I wanted a mount like this and almost built my own. It is completely idiotic that home builders continue to build homes where the only place to put a big TV is above the fireplace. Not only does it completely suck for viewing it is not healthy and will cause neck issues long term, and for people with existing neck issues(like me), makes it impossible to watch.

I went to an open house where the builders were there greeting visitors and I tore them a new when they told me the TV would go above the fireplace. They were dumbfounded but some other guests chimed in a said it was bad too lol..

Monoprice has these from $134-$155

I got the cheapest for my 65" and love it. While watchable in the raised position, it's more comfortable in the lower position. Highly recommended.

I bought one 3 years ago, best upgrade for my 65" samy. It has gas shocks so it's easy to lift up and down. Mine did break after 2 years, but they shipped me a replacement in 2 days so they totally stand behind their stuff. It helps tremendously with viewing angles for those TVs that shift color when you look at an angle and also gets the to between my atmos speakers so sound appears to come from tv rather than 4feet below it.

I hate having the TV so high. About 5 years ago I bought one of these mounts from https://www.dynamicmounting.com/ [dynamicmounting.com]. Was a little pricey, but I think well worth it. Yes, you're supposed to put it up when not in use, but ours stays in the down position 95% of the time. Mine has white covers that mostly hide the mount when you pull the TV down, and they are paintable to match your wall. There appears to be a lot more and cheaper options out there now. If you have no problem watching a TV that high, great for you, but I completely recommend these mounts.
