The Atdec TH-1040-VFM is an attractive flat panel display mount that comes in a combination silver and black color. The articulated arm has three pivot points - one at the wall, one in the middle of the arm, and the last just behind the mounting plate. Between the last pivot joint is a ball joint for up to 20 degree (one direction) angling and 360 degree rotation. This gives the TH-1040-VFM a range of motion that needs to be experienced to be believed. From an ease of installation standpoint, the Atdec Telehook TH-1040-VFM is tops.

Why not?

Why could the manufacture not offer color photo graphs that actually
show the mount attached to a flat panel set? They should have
provided 6 different jpegs that show the tv in six different orientations.
I wonder what the product manager was thinking. Based on just a picture of the mount, I will NOT be a customer…. This was poorly prepared.
How many women would buy a dress without seeing worn by a real
actual women?
