Cameras And Drywall Anchors?

When it comes to hanging cameras on drywall, a few missteps can turn a $50 install into a $300 repair job if done incorrectly. Pretty quickly you learn: every screw into drywall needs an anchor behind it.

When it comes to drywall anchors: any preferences or brand recommendations to share?

In my experience, I just used the cheapest type for most (non-load bearing) work, so I'm unrefined. You installation veterans: which do you prefer?
