TV Wall Mounts and 22 inch TV

Is everyone happy with the TV wall mounts. Do I need to reinforce the wall? I'm assuming it won't hold a TV larger than a 22.

Thanks for Input.

This thread from a ways back is in reference to mount for a 21'. One of the few that has the length to face both ways in a 21'. I do have a reinforced wall. There is a lot of torque on the mount when fully extended so reinforcing is needed. A work around would be a piece of hardwood surface mounted and screwed into the framing at the edges of the panel. I continue to like how this works.

We got the mounting arm that ETI sells - figured they would know what works. We did have the walls on both sides of the closet reinforced - both to help support the television mounting arm and to help support any modifications we might decided to do later inside the closet. Instead of using the wood screws that came with the arm, I used bolts that went clear through the wall with large fender washers and lock nuts so they wouldn't vibrate lose. So you know, Reace told me the wires to the wall-mounted thermostat go horizontally out to the side wall, so you shouldn't have to worry about drilling holes above or below the thermostat.
