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.
The reviews looked pretty good on this unit. I set it up in my office. The custodian threw out all my packaging so I can’t even pack it up to return it.
My issue is that it is flimsy. You have to perfectly balance the screens so the unit does not topple over. Spend the extra money and buy a clamp down unit.
The biggest issue I have is that my monitors are not level when joined together. They are identical monitors and I struggled to level them out. On one arm the adjustment screw is at its furthest point, while the other is at its minimum. I could understand if they were two different units but they are not.
Lastly on each arm the monitors have a slight tilt. I had to put some thin cardboard on the back where they connect to hold them level. Simply terrible that they could not design a sturdy and level unit.
*** english follow *** ATTENTION! Innapproprié pour 2 écrans 24 pouces en mode PORTRAIT. Si l'on veut mettre 2 écrans en mode portrait côte à côte (sans espacement entre les 2) les bras doivent être rapprochés au maximum et cette configuration fait en sorte que le pied est débalancé par l'avant. Pour arriver à un équilibre il faut probablement abaisser les écrans au maximum mais ce n'était pas envisageable dans mon cas puisque j'achetais ce pied pour avoir mes écrans plus en hauteur (en mode portrait les écrans doivent être plus haut). Sinon le pied aurait dû être plus gros et/ou les bras devraient pouvoir se plier encore plus. Dommage puisque ça semblait quand même être un support de qualité. ****************************** ATTENTION! Not appropriate for 24" dual monitor in PORTRAIT mode. If you want to put 2 monitors in portrait mode side by side without a gap, you have to bend and the arms at maximum and bring them as close as you can. This configuration is unusable because it put the stand out of balance. For proper balance you probably would have to lower both monitor at minimum but I did not want to do that because I purchased this stand especially to put my monitors higher. (in portrait mode the monitors have to be higher than usual) The stand could have been bigger and/or the arms could bend even more. In my case it was inappropriate but overall It seemed like a good quality stand.
Je ne suis pas entièrement satisfait de cet article, il est arrivé éraflé et il a un bras qui bouge tout le temps, même si je sert la vis au maximum. J'ai dû trafiqué pour que le bras arrête de bouger.
the stand works fine and everything seems to be well built but i'm going to need to buy a counter weight for this because with the way i want it set up, the stand tips over due to the weight of my monitors. i don't have a desk that i can drill through so there's no way for me to secure the base to my desk
My monitor setup is very straightforward: two 22" FHD panels of recent vintage, with a combined weight of 17 pounds (including stands), placed immediately adjacent to one another at an ergonomically sound 145-degree angle. My needs were simple: I wanted to maximize desk space by using a dual-monitor stand, but didn't want to permanently damage the monitor shelf of my desk (an original Ikea Jerker) and don't trust clamp mounts on anything thinner or less sturdy than a kitchen countertop. This stand met those modest and reasonable criteria on paper. Real life was another story.
I should have known there would be problems when I first tried to mount my monitors to this stand. Both times, it fell over. I figured the instability was just a matter of weight imbalance and would resolve itself once both monitors were secured and both arms were tightened. Instead, with every slight adjustment of monitor angle, every turn of the Allen wrench to tighten the arms, and even the slightest movement thereafter, the entire setup would pitch forward, crashing down from the sturdy, CRT-era, 18-inch-deep monitor shelf it called home onto the desktop below unless I had the reflexes to catch it in time. Of course I would then have to readjust the angles of the arms, which became misaligned, only to have the same thing happen again. Simply put, even with a workload well within the specifications for this stand, the weight of the base is not nearly enough to keep it stable on its own. Had I known that before, I would not have bought this stand.
Another problem I had with this stand is that the arms are attached to the pole with a single connector, so they cannot be moved up and down independently of one another. My monitors are different makes/models with the same screen size, but slightly different physical dimensions and VESA hole placements, and there was no way to align the screens with each other. Overlooking the arm configuration was a rookie mistake on my part, but one that I can easily see others making as well.
To make a long story short, if your monitors are the exact same make and model, placed side by side at a 180-degree angle, AND you are both willing and able to drill a hole in your desk for the "optional" bolt-through grommet clamp (or already have an existing grommet), this may be the monitor stand for you. If not, do yourself a favor and move on.
They call this mount free standing, but it really is not. The base is not large enough to prevent the stand from tipping it over. The design is definitely heavy duty. However, heavy duty does not mean that it is stable and capable of safely standing on its own.
The stand comes with hardware to make it more stable but it requires you to drill a hole into your table. I was not prepared to drill a hole in my table, because I thought it was "free standing."
I have had this product for a while. I knew when I installed my monitors that it could tip over, so I made extra sure to position the mount in a way that would not cause it to lean forward and tip. However, I recently made a small adjustment. The stand tipped forward and my monitors came crashing on my desk. One monitor hit something on my desk and broke. So I have to replace a $200 monitor.
Be prepared to drill a hole, or else your monitor stand will tip over and your monitors will break.
I had this all assembled and ready to go for my desk upgrade. I knew that the computer screens I got were just under the weight limit for this stand, but I really wanted a free standing stand and this was the best one that I could find. The screens came in and I attached it all without a problem, less than 20 minutes, and then I stood it up, and then the left side drooped down. The right side worked fine but the left just looked like a sad little screen. The instructions say that this can happen and can be fixed by tightening the nut. I did this five times, going as tight as I could get it, and it still drooped.
This actually kinda worked out since I found out that this didn't work properly with my new desk anyways, so it would have gotten returned regardless. It does seem like a sturdy build, if you're using lighter screens.
