SANUS VLT5 Wall Mount 2023 Review & Buying Guide

If you’re pushing the limits of sheer size, the Sanus VLT5-B1 wall mount will be perfect for you. With a small degree of tilt, it’ll offer an optimal viewing angle all while looking stylish.

I found it easy to use and install. Not to mention if you evermore the uninstall was very smooth as well. This is also priced very well considering the sheer size of TVs and weight it can hold.
