OmniMount 3N1-PJT projector mount reviewed @ RHT
You don’t see many projector mount reviews, so it was enlightening to see this one of the OmniMount 3N1-PJT and get a better understanding of the process that goes into selecting the right model for your projector.
If you have a projector, you probably want it mounted out of the way. Placed up on the ceiling, it’s less likely that someone will walk in front of your projector while watching a movie. For years now I’ve been using an OmniMount PJT40 for my projectors and it has worked perfectly. To test two projectors at once, I needed to install another projector mount so I again looked to OmniMount. The OmniMount 3N1-PJT projector mount is able to hold up to 40 pounds, just like the PJT40, but is more affordable at only $55. For those that won’t be routinely swapping out their projector, the 3N1-PJT does a very good job.

I use a monoprice mount that cost a fraction of the price. Makes me wonder if the model reviewed does something I’m not seeing extra or if it’s just priced higher because of the manufacturer.

Which mount do you have? I’d guess that it’s probably a little bit of branding and a little bit of materials and design, but it’s hard to know without seeing them side-by-side.
For e.g. the last TV mount that I had was also a fraction of the price of a higher end, name brand model. They looked almost exactly the same on Amazon, so I went with it (why pay more). It worked fine, but it had a lot of trade-offs in practice that the other one didn’t. That said, I’m not sure that I would have gone for the more expensive one, just that it was quite a bit nicer :).
I’ve got http://www.monoprice.com/mobile/product/details/6528 (well, one of mine) which doesn’t have the modular extensions that the reviewed mount does. The slightly higher priced ($25) monoprice one with telescopic extension is probably about the equivalent. Hardware like this always seem to have a wide price point and occasionally something about the expensive end will get me to buy just for a single bonus feature.
