Echogear Low Profile Fixed TV Wall Mounts: EGLL1 vs. EGLL2

Echogear has two similar low-profiled TV wall mounts with the EGLL1 and EGLL2. So, which one of these is better?

You can find out in this comparison guide.  

Quick Summary

When compared to the Echogear EGLL1, the Echogear EGLL2 is much easier to install as the newer version comes with a drilling template in addition to providing post-installation leveling.

With that said, the EGLL1 offers a slimmer profile than the EGLL2 as the older version will stick out less from the wall. 

Assuming your television set matches the weight and VESA perquisites for both wall mounts, the EGLL2 is the best option if you want an easier installation while the EGLL1 is the better choice if you want your TV to be as close to your wall as possible.

VESA

VESA measures the horizontal and vertical spacing of the four mounting holes located on the back of your television set. Your mount needs to support the VESA of your TV to fit.

The EGLL1 supports the following VESA that is not supported by the EGLL2: 100 mm x 100 mm, 500 mm x 200 mm and 500 mm x 400 mm.

Meanwhile, the EGLL2 supports the following VESA that is not supported by the EGLL1: 200 mm x 300 mm, 200 mm x 400 mm, 600 mm x 200 mm and 600 mm x 300 mm.

Aside from the aforementioned differences, the two mounts in the versus guide supports the same VESA spacings.

Depth from Wall

Profile measures the distance in depth between the television set and the wall when your TV is installed on the mount. The EGLL1 has a very low profile at 1.25″ while the EGLL2 sticks out a little bit more with a 2.25″ depth.

With the Echogear EGLL1 Low Profile Fixed Wall Mount, you have to remove the mount from your wall and reinstall in order to level your television.
