      Perfect!

      Excellent item at an excellent price! Using this to mount a 27” Mid 2010 iMac and a 27” Cinema Display screen and have to say, that it is perfect in every way. Excellent item at an excellent price! Using this to mount a 27” Mid 2010 iMac and a 27” Cinema Display screen and have to say, that it is perfect in every way. Installation is a 2 man job, after trying as a one man exercise, it is much easier with another set of hands! Providing you use the correct drill bits, the 5 holes are straight forward - Assembling the support column is where the benefit of the additional person helps, but once you’ve lined up the bolts, you’re good to go, and once tightened, the monitors can be mounted - and again, the extra help is beneficial in adjusting to the required position. Once tightened in position you’ll feel the benefit of extra desk space and reduced neck fatigue. If you’re contemplating investing in this kit, I’d certainly have no hesitation in recommending.

      Back to the drawing board…

The first one I received was missing the desk clamp – Apple supplied a replacement eventually. Then I found that the mounting system a) requires five holes to be drilled in your desk b) the mounting screws are only designed for particularly thin desk tops and c) everything is in some quaint and parochial thread that is almost impossible to source outside the USA. When I finally did get the thing installed after a LOT of running around, I found that the height adjusters are not readily adjustable (you need an allen key and two people) and the mount rotation cannot be locked at all so that the monitors/imac rotate as soon as looked at. I'm pretty unimpressed with this and certainly wouldn't recommend it to anyone living outside the USA. Also Bretford's tech support weren't much help in trying to source longer screws.

      Good product but installation a headache if your desk is 35mm+ thick

      I'm left with mixed feelings of satisfaction and disappointment regarding this good product but an associated installation headache. Most disappointing was tha I'm left with mixed feelings of satisfaction and disappointment regarding this good product but an associated installation headache. Most disappointing was that, upon researching my issues, it seems other customers had already reported them to Bretford, but received no response. The issues I experienced were easily avoidable. I also reported the issue, but received no response. If your desk is 35mm+ thick, read on... The problem with this product, in my opinion, is that the supplied bolts that are too short. The bolts are approximately 45mm long, but consider that: - The plate that goes underneath the desk is approximately 10mm thick - We probably need 10mm of the bolt engaged in the main post The result being our desk must be < 25mm thick. My desk is 35mm thick so I was stuck! Unfortunately I had already drilled holes in my desk, otherwise I would have returned this product in principle, due to lack of interest from Bretford. "Why not buy longer bolts?" This is where the second issue arises! DIY shops in the UK tend to sell metric bolts, however the bolts provided appear to be an imperial thread. My engineering degree long forgotten, having been in IT for 14 years, I found it difficult to determine the exact thread making it difficult to order some longer bolts - I was also too impatient to post a bolts to a supplier for them to review and to send back longer versions. Instead I opted to use a tap and die set to cut metric threads in the other end of the main post, such that I could use longer metric bolts more easily available from local DIY shops. All Bretford need to do is listen to the feedback and supply longer bolts. Is that too hard to do?

      Poor Design

      I have just received my mount and with usual excitement I opened the box to expect a nice product to go with all my MAC products. Then to my shock I found that I have just received my mount and with usual excitement I opened the box to expect a nice product to go with all my MAC products. Then to my shock I found that I now need to drill holes in my nice desk. Nowhere in the description did it say that i had to drill my desk. Its poorly executed and not up to the usual apple design standards. It looks good but practically flawed. It now occupies space in my bin.

      Just received. The mounting bolts are way too short for my desk.

      Just received this. The mounting bolts are way too short for my desk. I need the ones with the length of 80~85mm. I hope to find these from the local hardware Just received this. The mounting bolts are way too short for my desk. I need the ones with the length of 80~85mm. I hope to find these from the local hardware shop. Other than this it looks good. To protect the surface of the desk, a thinner sheet of metal in just the same shape and size of the pole must be much helpful.

      Great mount with minor quirks

      Overall I’m very satisfied. There are some quirks. But first the positives. It’s clean and modern looking and the additional space in front of my workspace i Overall I’m very satisfied. There are some quirks. But first the positives. It’s clean and modern looking and the additional space in front of my workspace is great. I’m currently using the 2nd arm to hold my MacBook Pro for accessibility to the new touch bar. The cable management leaves a lot to be desired. Also the fact that my monitor is now at eye level changes everything. It feels like the monitor (27”) is much closer to my face and I sort of like that. The negatives: Ignore the manual requirements for 8mm and 16mm drill bits. Use a 5/16 and 5/8. There is no template for drilling except for the bracket mount so even a slight error in drilling could harm the lining up of the bolts, which is extremely frustrating. You should use two people when attempting to have the bolts “catch”. A vesa mount is needed to attach your monitor to the arm and those are very hard to find on Apple’s site since they’re always sold out. When the installation is completed you’ll need to keep all three Allen wrenches to make adjustments. Adjusting the swivel horizontally is simple since you can leave the bolts somewhat loose. However, the tilt for the monitor must be locked down. All tilts require a wrench with a nice tight turn to lock it. Closing the MacBook lid is scary since there are two lips on the front of the tray that contact the glass when closing the MacBook. Don’t forget to remove your MacBook before closing the lid unless you want broken glass. Lastly, the first time I used the tray it snapped off the arm. Metal chards everywhere. Customer service shipped another one overnight very close to Christmas and this was just great!
