comment How to fix a large hole in drywall
Well sure you could prove which solution is more durable, but it would probably involve another hole in your wall. :)

comment Danny Lipford Workbench Questions
You're right that drywall screws are fine for the plywood brace buildup where there's glue present, but not for securing the braces to the wall. I would not suggest gluing to the studs. What if the next owner of the house wants to uninstall it, or the OP changes their mind?

You shouldn't recommend using drywall screws for a structural application. Wood screws are the way to go for this project. Also, a line level would work for getting the chalk line level.

comment Can metal studs support a 64" plasma TV on a swiveling mount?
In addition to screwing into the metal studs with an appropriate anchor, adding construction adhesive to the plywood/drywall interface should contribute a significant amount of strength.

comment Is there a standard hole diameter for corner braces?
Sites like HD often have a question and answer feature that the manufacturer monitors and answers questions on. You may want to check if the particular product page you're looking for has such a feature. That way you can get an exact answer.
