Hey, I am looking into mounting my 20 inch Samsung LCD tv on the wall. Right now it is just on top of my bookcase and that angle makes it a pain in the ass to watch. How do i determine what mounting type to use? Also what is a cheap way to go? I have done some browsing and all i can find is 200$ systems that seem to be major overkill.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Hm, I'm not entirely sure, but I think most LCDs utilize a VESA mount. You can check the manual for your TV to see if it says anyhting about that, or see if the model is on this site:

    For the mount itself, I recently got a LCD and purchased my mount from www.monoprice.com. The one I bought mounts onto two studs, but I think you should be fine mounting it on one stud. This one seems like it should do the trick, and it's only about 25 bucks shipped. They have some other mounts on there that you can check out. I'm satisfied with the one that I purchased from them, it came with all the nuts/bolts necessary to install it. I just needed a level, studfinder, drill, and the appropriate wrench/screw driver.

    Monoprice is fantastic, use them as much as possible.
    Besure to attach to a stud. If you want to run cables through the walls, you can't run power cables unless it's through metal conduit.
