This mount does exactly what's required, mounts the TV to the wall and is multi-adjustable. What's not said in the description is that it's manufacture is such that it's one of the strongest brackets I've seen. Well worth the very small cost, more than capable of mounting any small to medium sized flat TV.

This item arrives in a small box, and the bracket needs to be built up from several parts, using the supplied nuts and bolds and washers. This should take the average person around 10 minutes, reading from the instructions, although the one nut that needs to be placed inside the recess at the back of the Faceplate, before fixing the bolt, is a bit fiddly to keep in place in order to align for the bolt.
(My tip here would be to fit the bolt to the nut several times first in order to "Cut" the nut threads... making it easier to screw into when placed in that awkward recess!)
I would recommend that you fix all the nuts up finger tight until you are ready to actually place the TV onto the bracket, as there is ample room to tighten fully after TV is fitted, although the one behind the faceplate will be unaccessable after fitting, so you do need to fully tighten that one first.
I fitted the Plate to the back of the TV seperatly, then aligned that up with the rest of the bracket that I fixed to the wall first, but either way, you do need 4 hands.
I also knew that I wanted the Tilt at its maximum facing down, as I was placing my 22" high on the wall, so I tightened that tilt nut fully whilst assembling as I knew it would be easier to do so then, rather when it was placed up on the wall with TV in place.
Build quality is good, and the tilt is very generous. Obviously the Swivel is very ample, so hold the fully assembled bracket on the wall first in order to see how far it swings around, so you will know where you will want to drill your holes.
You do get 2 selections of 4 small bolts to fix the plate to your TV, but I found they were too long for my TV, and luckily I was able to use the 4 bolts that came with the TV stand, as they fitted the holes perfectly.
£11.96 is a decent price for this bracket, and I would recommend it.

Fast delivery and fairly good quality item that was well packed. The postage costs are fair given the weight of the bracket and the sturdy box it came in. All fixings for wall and screen included and a spanner for the bolt, and clear instructions for those who not mechanically minded. For the price it is excellent value, but there are a couple of gripes that would have been critical at the published 'retail' price...
The tilt is achieved with a curved section stamped and pressed out of the back of the screen mounting bracket. This sits in a curved spacer which is held with a through-bolt onto the arm mount. A slot in the curved section allows the screen bracket to tightened above or below the centre of the curve, altering the vertical angle of the screen. So a neat solution, except the slot is only half the length it could be, limiting the angle of tilt. This is a design error rather than quality control and is a shame because it seriously affects the functioning of the bracket.
Uses rubber o-rings to provide friction between joints - another neat solution except the recesses were not all machined / cast to the correct depth. So two of the joints are perfect but the one nearest the screen bracket cannot be fully tightened. As a result, moving the lateral direction of the screen undoes the screw. Another issue was the mounting of the arm to the wall plate - this was considerably out of alignment, making the bracket sit off the horizontal. Finally, the edges of the casting are sharp, and the powder coat has been chipped off during handling leaving bright metal. So manufacture / quality control not the best, although the bracket is sturdy and capable of much greater loads than advertised.
So overall a good value product, and ideal for mounting and fixing a screen in one position. However this is not top quality and, unless mine was a bad one, not suited to continual adjustment or as part of an interior-design style installation where appearance is important.
Edit: I've just noticed this is now more than three times the price I paid for it; it was good value at fifteen quid, now not so much...

I bought two of these to mount a pair of 19" monitors side by side. The pair were boxed together and shipped promptly. All fixings were provided. It's a bit difficult using these in pairs as there is some flexibility in the arms so the monitors don't end up exactly level with each other. But they work well and offer many viewing options. They are very strong - probably overkill for 19" screens.
The only down side is they need a spanner to adjust the vertical angle.

This is a great little mount especially given the price. The only minor problem I had was that the instructions could be better as to put the mount together as shown in the diagrams results in a very loose mount. Rejig the pieces and a sturdy little mount results.

Solid, very sturdy, doesn't wobble, handles my 19" LED perfectly allowing a full 180 degrees of rotation so the screen can be made to face either full left, right or centre and MUCH cheaper than other models (update note August 2011: when I purchased this Jan 2011 it was under £20 - the price has gone up quite a bit since then making it somewhat less of a bargain). The tilt feature is a real plus, though this is handled by tightening a nut which, by the nature of the thing, will tend to loosen the more you use it. Tightening the tilt once the TV is attached is difficult (you need a really slim wrench). But that's a minor complaint. If you want to affix a medium size slim-line monitor to the wall, this is an excellent product to do it with (I can't say how well it handles rotation on much larger sizes but for a 19" or smaller, it does the business).

This package came in a small package, was easy to assemble and is very neat in every sense: It is small measuring 8" width and 5" height when assembled.
It swivels in every direction , even tilting, and it folds back snugly against the wall when not in use.
It is so sturdy that it can support about 25 kg which is ample for my medium sized TV at 5 kg.

Duronic PLB2820 TV Bracket: I bought this to wall mount a 22 inch flat screen LED television: The bracket arrived very quickly indeed and was as described and as shown in the photograph. Although the design is quite plain, which I think is a good thing, it is certainly very strong and functional. It fitted the television perfectly. The television mount has three VESA mount size options (50, 75 & 100 mm I beleive) which makes it very versatile. The fact the TV mount both swivels and tilts is especially useful enabling the screen to be tilted towards the viewing position at the perfect angle -very good!
The bracket is supplied as a kit of parts and although the instruction sheet is not especially clear, if followed carefully it takes just a few minutes to assemble the bracket successfully. A couple of small spanners are needed to tighten up the nuts and bolts properly - one spanner on the bolt and one on the nut.
As other reviewers alluded to, I found that the jaw that holds the swivel/tilt TV mount was a bit too wide which would have caused a loose and wobbly fitting, so I nipped it into a vice and carefully squeezed it together slightly. Once the bolt was inserted and tightened up the joint was extremely firm.
Overall the process of mounting the television to the wall using this bracket was a lot easier and quicker than I had anticipated and I would certainly recommend this product.
