This HDTV Wall mount is part of a larger whole house audio project we just completed.  The built-in we had to work with was originally designed for the larger old style TVs, not the slim HDTV we selected for this project.  In order to create the best possible viewing experience we opted to install the HDTV on a articulating wall mount.  This allowed us to "float" the HDTV in the cabinet space and angle it into the room for a unfettered view from the living room and kitchen.
