To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Not really the fault of this mount, I was probably pushing my luck getting this stand for an Acer X34 Ultrawide. Weight-wise it was within the limits but the hinge couldnt hold the weight of the monitor and the screen just sagged down. I tightened the bolt to where it bent the washer and still it sagged. I ended up ordering the 'Amazon basics premium single monitor stand'. People with this screen seem to have more luck with that. At least this VIVO one is not super expensive.
Overall, its ok, the metal is good but I have not been able to keep my monitor straight. over time it tilts down because the point that mounts to the monitor is not very strong. it is ok for maybe a light monitor, but anything over 23 inches or a bit older (so heavier) it wont work well. it is very frustrating.
When I received the product, one of the 3 screw holes that holds the base plate to the pole, was rusted and the screw couldn't be installed. Needing the unit for an installation, I had to tap the hole so that it would accept the screw. Not very please with that. Product looks OK, but if I didn't have a tap, I would have had to return it and scramble for another solution.
Unboxing this revealed what looked like a sturdy functional monitor stand. When I tried to assemble this however it was clear that this unit did not have the threading or holes for the screws in the first step (bottom of the pole). Annoying manufacturer defect that forced me to return the product.
