    I can't recommend anything, but most TVs use the VESA standards and have a standard pattern. look in your owners manual or possibly on the back of the set.

    Dont skimp on this one, get the more expensive one that holds more weight. Get a stud finder, and pre-drill your bolt holes. Its a little more money, and a bit more effort, but you will feel a great deal safer once you do all that. I hung a 37 in monitor, and I have complete faith in it holding. Make sure you aren't hanging the mount in metal studs, the screws wont hold properly. Mine was a mount from best buy, it was 169 or 149, it is a tilting mount. Good Luck, and grab a friend to install.

    You're talking about the screws connecting the wall mount to the TV? Those should be called out in the documentation you got with the stand, or with your TV.

    If you're talking about the screws holding the mount to the wall, that's a different matter.
