Above Fireplace Pull-Down Full-Motion TV Wall Mount

Darren's living room is all glass and the only place to put his TV is above the fireplace. Scott isn't much of a fan of that because the viewing angle is hard on the neck. Will it be bad for the TV though? It shouldn't be affected by heat because a fireplace is protected from heat transfer into the walls. The chatroom says to take the fireplace out and put the TV there.

What about mounts? Scott says that getting an articulating TV mount would be a good idea just in case. He'll want one that comes out and down. Leo recommends going to MonoPrice.com. Leo also says it'll be a challenge to mount and install, so he may want to get a professional to do it or drop it from the ceiling.

What about the going the OLED route? Scott says that with such a bright room, he really won't want an OLED. He should get LCD instead. But you'll still have an issue with reflection.
