Samsung Mini Wall Mount WMN450M
Mounting Samsung TVs on the wall is now easier and takes lesser time. Featuring a modern design, Samsung’s chic and stylish Mini Wall Mount WMN450M keeps the TV wall mount out of sight, ensuring that the viewing experience is unhampered.
The WMN450M has a maximum loading weight of 200kg, which means that it can easily support Samsung’s larger sized TVs from 2013 and 2014. Now, hanging a Samsung TV on the wall is as enjoyable as placing a piece of art. Users can now spend time enjoying their TV rather than putting it up.
The WMN450M can be set at either 20mm or 40mm from the wall to cater to 32” to 65” screen size Samsung TVs, and still leave enough room for cables to access the back of the TV. Connecting an extra cable, even a thicker cable, is not a problem.
The Samsung Mini Wall Mount WMN450M is now available now at $129.
Samsung CY-SHC3020D/ZK Ultra Slim High-Speed HDMI Cable
Enjoy crystal-clear picture and sound with the Samsung CY-SHC3020D/ZK Ultra Slim High-Speed HDMI Cable’s enhanced signal transmission. The HDMI cable reduces signal error and loss, thanks to a short strip length for lower impedance, a 24K gold terminal, and plug for quality connectivity.
This cable has a strong noise immunity achieved through seamless plug, a metal can shield, a triple layer shield, and a higher density copper braid shielding. It also has an improved industry standard test pattern, which delivers lower bit error and a higher standard of image quality, and lower impedance through a reduced range of impedance flatness.
The user-friendly premium HDMI designed with swivel connectors makes the SHC3020D simple to connect. It also drastically reduces the space required between the back of your TV and the wall.
The Samsung CY-SHC3020D/ZK Ultra Slim High-Speed HDMI Cable is now available at $99.
