The tv is too high when placed above a fireplace. Unless you're the people who go to the movies and sit in the front row, it isn't going to be comfortable. New flat screens are meant to be watch straightforward, so the lower settings are really best. I love the moderne one at the end, where there is no box, no cable, no wires, no electric... guess it has a basement where all the electric can "just simply" be run. If it's in the floor, do you have to move the tv to get to the configurations? In fact, the major problem with all of these is reality vs. design. There is going to have to be some sort of electrical hookup and "just simply" rebooting is already a nightmare when the modem is sitting behind the tv. But love the designs! Just not practical in my opinion.

Why must we conceal our television? Makes zero sense to me.

I love the look of the TV over the fireplace, I understand that some of the new mounts can allow the TV to be lowered down by 2 feet. This would certainly make it easier to watch. Has anyone installed these mounts...are they easy to use/effective?
