Pros: very strong, no problems supporting my nearly 20lbs monitor, monitor can be tilted or rotated in about any direction.
Cons: waste massive amounts of space. From the wall to the back plate of the monitor is more than 6". The problem is the supporting post conflicts with the arm and keeps it from sitting back further. (See picture) This could be fixed by either raising the height of the arm to the very top of the post (monitor will sit very high) or maybe cutting the post (something I'm not willing to do).
Even if the post is the not in the way, the monitor would still protrude significantly from the wall, or edge of desk. This is clearly for people with gigantic desk/ tables to mount it on.
Also, this was a major pain to set up. There are 4 separate sized wrenches to adjust the different screws. It's also heavy and the arms don't flex easily without the monitor. I got this to avoid damaging the wall, but it's so unwieldy, that I accidentally scratched the wall anyway.
Note that the arm can flex straight, but that wasn't workable for my small desk. Mounting the arm on one end and the monitor can only sat over the opposite end with the post almost diagonal from the strain of the weight.
Finally, the advert says "polished aluminum" but most of this stand is actually painted with a large part of the arm covered in a cheap painted plastic cover.
Here is a quick pro/con list:
- Sturdy construction with the exception of the tilt screw (more in "cons")
- Supports my 27" Acer monitor (states 15.8 lb but I think it's less) and a Intel NUC PC mounted on a special VESA bracket (SilverStone Technology NUC/Monitor Arm Extension Bracket with VESA Mount Specification (MVA01)). So probably about 20 lb in total.
- Adjusts in every imaginable way
- My biggest issue was that after mounting my screen it immediately tilted forward (facing down). That happened with only the 27" screen mounted (without the NUC). With the additional weight of the NUC it got slightly worse). There is a hex screw to tighten up and I have done that to the point where I think it's going to break (but hasn't broken yet). I am a pretty strong guy and had to use quite a bit of force... After going through that ordeal my screen stays put. I expect that I have to tighten that screw periodically. If that happens or it breaks the assembly I will update this review.
- If you have little space between where you sit and where the arm is mounted then the swing arm may bring the screen too close to you. I have a narrow desk and it's just about acceptable. But I would prefer to have my screen a few inches further back. For reference, my desk is only 20" in depth. The arm is positioned on the corner of my desk and is almost flush with the wall behind the desk.
So for now I can definitely recommend this monitor arm even with the tilt issue that can be corrected. Especially considering the $99 price tag at the time I purchased it.
