Compared: Table Top, Wall Mounted and Suspended Ceiling Projector Mount Brackets

If you have decided to purchase a new projector, that you can use to watch movies and play video games on, once you have made your purchase, you’ll be ready to move on and take the next step in the process which is to find somewhere to put the thing. There are many ways to place your projector in your room, you can simply put it on a table, mount it from the wall, or from the ceiling with a suspended ceiling projector mount. There are pros and cons of each of these ways. Here is a brief explanation of each in turn.

Using a Projector Ceiling Mount

Mounting a projector on a ceiling bracket is a popular choice of the mounts that are available. The advantage of these types of mounts is that the projector is out-of-the-way and is permanently ready to use. When using a ceiling mount projector, you do not need to worry about setting it up into the correct viewing orientation as it will be permanently in place. One of the disadvantages of projector ceiling mounts is that they are the most difficult of all three techniques to set up. You will also need to consider how heavy your projector is and how large. If you have ceiling fans, lights and other fixture, then these may determine the viability of a ceiling projector in your house. No less important is how easily your projector fits in with the overall decoration of the room.

Using a Table Top

One of the easiest ways to mount your projector is to simply place it on a table. Aesthetically and for safety concerns, this is not the greatest of solutions in the long run, especially if you have pets or children that could do expensive damage to your projector set or to themselves.

Using A Projector Wall Mount

Wall mounted projectors are similar to ceiling projectors, but are a little easier to set up as they do not require you to climb up a ladder or do anything too risky when you set them up. You will have to plan for the wiring to come through from the back of the wall and ensure that any cables between your other devices link up to the projector. Like the other solutions, mounting your projector on the wall will look great if done well, but otherwise may end up looking unsightly and clumsy.

Whether you decide to use a suspended ceiling projector mount, a wall projector mount or to simply use a table, your ultimate success will depend on how much time you spend in terms of planning your setup in terms of the optimal position of your projector as well as how it looks and blends in with the interior decoration of your room.
