TV should NOT be mounted eye level to the middle.

The ratio of eye level dramatically changes as the distance from the TV changes.
We generally install the BOTTOM of the TV to be eye level if possible at the recommended distance from the TV.
If it is too low, it looks stupid when you are standing.
