MoserBaer LTF 42845: 42-inch LCD TV


Inexpensive 42-incher, but at the cost of performance

Quite inexpensive, good cosmetic design, easy to use OSD and remote, very good PC performance over HDMI

Weak black levels, Blu-Ray playback is very noisy, USB doesn't support DivX

Check size before buying


Product states it can be used for tvs up to 42". My tv is 37" and the bracket is unsuitable, as the horizontal bar is not long enough to be able to attach to the vertical tv brackets.

Good value product


I am no diy expert but I found that this was fixed within 15 minutes with no problems. I can commend this for 32" LG flat screen.

contortionist needed!


This is the worst bracket i have ever bought, firstly it doesnt swivel, only tilt and it remains in the low tilt position due to being unable to tighten as allen key will not fit behind to tighten up once tv in place which it must be of course....

Reasonable product for a reasonable price.


I bought this as a stop-gap as we couldn't find the custom bracket we had bought due to being packed in moving boxes.

Poor Description


it might well fit uptop 42" but you would not want it for a small TV - the vertical hanging rails protude below the TV. Also does not fit non flat back TVs and no washers or spacers are provided
