You get exactly what you pay for and more! Packaging was absolutely solid and there was not damage what so ever, However, I will mention that some of the screws that held the stand segments in place were ludicrously tight, however untightening them somewhat fixed any slight issues to follow. Other then that, they slid right on my desk and still function great! Pickem up for this price because they are a steal for the price.
Great value. Assembly was relatively simple (I used the clamp) and instructions were laid out well.There were videos online too when I ran into a snag installing the vesa plate.It holds up my giant LG 34UM68-P, a 34 inch ultrawide monitor, without any noticeable sagging.There's a bit of creaking in the up and down swivel but all the joints are adjustable so I'll tighten/loosen things here and there if needed. Knocking off a star because it came with a noticeable scratch on the mounting pole and I really didn't like the hex key tools.
Space is tight on the computer equivalent of a side table, so I needed something to mount my monitor. Every part needs to be assembled, so have 15 min handy. But just looking at the illustration of the finished product is enough to go on. All the parts are nicely partitioned, and it includes both short and long screws for attaching it to the VESA mount point.
After tightening it down with the included allen wenches, it holds a hefty 24" monitor without much give, and the mounting bracket can clamp onto anything between plywood and a thick desk. The only issue is screen pitch, where it will budge if it gets a light bump at the base, but the height adjustment is firm. The ability to swivel the screen into portrait is nice.
It won't win any beauty contests, but since it's supposed to sit in the background and hold the thing you're actually looking at, the point's moot.
Overall, for roughly $30, I recommend it if you need to mount a screen and prefer function over form.
arm gives the "floating monitor" illusion. though Prime Cables mount for $15 less has more motion, this one is far more stable (less movement) as I type on the keyboard; its not perfect but better. I suppose you get what you pay for or perhaps I am too picky. the cable management leaves a little to be desired - it can just barely contain 4 cables (in my case: usb, power, hdmi, DP) and the tie on the vertical pole is slanted due to the weight of the cables; I ended up using zipties to alleviate the stress on the clips.
-1 star because instructions were not clear. STEP 3 suggested using the included washers and long screws for monitors with recessed VESA mounts. The screws were too long and unusable since it wouldn't allow me to secure the VESA backplate firmly at all. Aside from that I'm satisfied with the product.
I bought this stand to us at my work desk. Unfortunately, the desk did not have large enough rims for the clamp to stick to it. So, I took it back to my home desk. There, it still didn't fit because it didn't have the rims for the clamp to fit. I had to use a piece of plywood to make it fit right Your desk needs to have a flat two-inch wide space coming out for the stand to fit right. Once it does, it's great. I love the fact that the monitor can be spinned around to make it vertical, if needed. The stand seems sturdy and it allows for good placement of the screen. Good product, for a good price.
So here's my breakdown for this product and take it with a grain of salt. To start its a great product and well made. And shipping was amazing. Now depending on where your monitor mounting section is located can be a make or break when it comes to buying this.
I have Samsung 28" UE590 UHD Monitor which the basic stand sucked. So i figured getting a new arm would really help rise the monitor up a bit to prevent myself from consistently looking downwards when editing for instance.
Anyways to get to my point is that the stand is great and will do for almost most people but if you do have a monitor like mine where the dam mounting section is located at the top part then this stand is not for us. You can really only move left and right and minor tilting up and down. Where without height the tilt isn't really doing much.
So if you do have a monitor that has the mount on the bottom half the monitor or better yet a smaller monitor then i think this would be what your looking for. But for people with slightly bigger monitor or have their mount section located on the upper section of the monitor, then id recommend something else probably.
For me my solution now is to get a 2 by 4 piece of wood to gain a few extra inches which will probably do it justice.
Great price for what seems to be a well-made monitor stand. It is a more staightforward construction than some of the fancier and more expensive stands available, but it appears to be quite sturdy and attractive. There was a slight cosmetic blemish, but barely noticeable. The stand has three hinge-points on the arm -- one where it meets the riser, one mid-point, and one at the monitor mounting plate. The mid-point hinge has about 210 degrees of movement, which is a little less than I would have liked, but at this price point, I have no reason to complain.
