    Does anyone make a wall mounting for a smallish LCD screen (say up to 20") which will hold the set close to the wall but also allow it to be moved out away from the wall and angled sideways?

    I don't mind sinking the mount into the wall itself, if that's necessary.

    Thanks in advance.

    Bert, I got a folding LCD mount from Argos, (I'm not at home at the mo' so can't remember the manufacturer) but it either allows you to have the set away from the wall and angled horizontally or vertically on a folding arm, or you can push it up against the wall reasonably flush.

    I'll check later and get back to you.

    Excellent. Many thanks. I don't need the tilt facility (which actually looks slightly alarming, I think) but the rest is spot-on. A very good price, too.

    It's interesting that the illustration doesn't show any cables, which would obviously need pretty careful management. The Argos mount seems to be hollow throughout, which is rather a good idea, but I don't think the same is true of this one.

    Thanks again.

    Bert, My bracket is an AVF one, cost around sixty pounds I recall. It's the same as the flat AVF one in the current Argos catalogue, but attached to an extending arm. I found mine is very good, you can position the set anywhere along the arm or even shorten it if required.

    They don't seem to stock it anymore, but if you do a search for AVF products, I'm sure it would bring something up....

    That said, the one they now stock looks good and I like the idea that the cable can be hidden inside.

    Flashman,

    Thanks very much. I agree about the neat cable-handling of the current Argos model (assuming that I'm interpreting the description correctly.)
