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

    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

      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

        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.
