you think a plasma is heavy . I just got myself a hi res 37" crt monitor to use with my pc . Did'nt quite realise how heavy it was going to be .turned out to be 98kg , that's 3 times as much as my 42" plasma .
I'm going to have to build myself a desk to put it on as I would not trust it on anything I could buy .Going to have to find a few people to give me a hand to get the thing on the desk when made though .Me and the wife had a right job just to get it in the house
and get a good quality bit . the ones of the market ect. are a wast of time , they just bend and melt . If I was you hanging somthing costing this much I would go to a propper hardware store get a set of good quality rawl bolts and a single drill bit that matches them perfectly.
If you do that and use a decent corded drill you should have no problem and it should never go anywere. If you are realy unsure if you go to a small local hardware store (not the likes of b&q) and tell them exactly what you are doing they tend to be able to sort you out . Once the mount is up it's just a case of sloting the plasma on . I allways think the best way would be to get 3 people , one each side lifting the main weight and another to stand in front a hand top and bottom to keep it upright more than anything so it dos'nt flip when you lift it high up . That's how I would do it anyway .
I would allways go with rawl bolts when mounting somthing this heavy though . I would never trust the screws and plugs that tend to come with these mounts , not after I had a 14" tv on a tv bracket fall off the wall when I was hammering in the next room
I had an install in Maida Vale once, a 4 floor town house. He had a panny 5 series in the living room, 1st floor, and a 36" quintrix in the bedroom, 4th floor. It was 96kg in the box, which you could have smuggled 25 Albanians inside, and I was on my own. Those of you who have met me might have noticed I wear an elbow brace.... Not from lifting plasmas.
