Hi each.

I wish to wall mount my 46" Sony LCD on a wall approx 3 feet from the floor and view it whilst sitting on standard settee etc.

I'm guessing it would need to be angled downward due to LCD viewing angles.

Can anyone recommend a suitable bracket?

Unicol brackets are very good, industrial quality, simple to install and are used professionally, but they are a bit pricey.

http://www.unicol.com/

B-Tech are are a bit of a faff to install, lighter quality but perfectly good.

We use both makes at work (an FE college) and much prefer the Unicol - but then again, in a domestic situation, it's not likely that you will have much need to remove or re-angle the screen once it is fitted so I'd save pennies, tolerate the faffing and buy a B-Tech.

Three feet isn't very high, and Sony sets have extremely wide viewing angles anyway, but I wouldn't expect any make of set to need angling down when fitted that low.

Easy enough to test - stand it on something 3 feet high.

I'd second B-Tech (Mountlogic range), good value and sturdy enough, or Omnimount, but they can be a bit pricey. I use both, depending on size/weight. Unicol are true professional kit and usually far too pricey for domestic installs (IME).
