Has a definite feel of quality, and would seem well up to the weight of any monitor. Unfortunately, you must drill holes through your desk to install it, as there is no clamp mount available for it. This ended up being a deal breaker for me, but if you are willing to do it -- and need something that swivels easily -- it's a good product. In the end, however, I'm going with a (much simpler) product by Lindy, instead.

      Super quality product but has limitations for adjustment

      I am 5' 2" and wear progressive bifocal lens. When I got the 27-inch iMac I found I was always craning my neck to see that tiny line at the top of the screen th I am 5' 2" and wear progressive bifocal lens. When I got the 27-inch iMac I found I was always craning my neck to see that tiny line at the top of the screen thru "just the right place" in my glasses. I was getting stabbing pains in my neck after using it for an hour or so. First, I lowered my adjustable desk, but there is a limit to how far down it could go and still get my knees under. (I read the 27-inch is perfect for a 6'2" person!) I bought the Bretford desk mount to lower the display further, since the original stand has no vertical adjustment at all. This desk mount is super heavy-duty quality! The material and workmanship are top-notch. You also need the Apple VESA mount for the 27-inch and installing that took some doing. Expect you will have to read the directions and have patience to do this whole process. Installation is not for the faint of heart. You need two people and be willing to take the time to drill the five holes perfectly plumb or the screws coming up thru the desk will have a hard time meeting the holes in the stand. Don't expect to use a fancy or antique desk because all the holes will be unsightly when this is removed someday. The vertical adjustment is NOT the automatic slider you might expect - there is a pull-pin that sets the position in 1-inch increments, and then you insert two big Allen head screws to hold it where you set it. You need someone to hold the weight of the monitor while you make this adjustment. It is not quick, and you have to be careful you don't drop it. The side-to-side and front-to-back adjustments are easy and smooth, like you would expect. The tilt, however, is not just "grab and adjust" as it was on the original stand. The tilt joint is held by two Allen screws, and it feels very tenuous. I put a block underneath the display because I thought there was a good chance they might slip and the display would crash into the desk. My husband really tightened them but, with everything else in this mount so QUALITY and heavy-duty, it would seem there would be a more secure and quickly adjustable tilt. I don't need it to be motorized, but if you look at the photos, you expect to be able to grab the monitor and move it all over to adjust and tilt and that is not the case. Yes, you CAN set it VERY precisely in every direction to where you are comfortable on a desk you don't care that much about. But do not get the idea that you can easily make quick changes for tall and short people. This is best used to completely customize a set up just for you.

So you wanna buy two of these and on each pole you wanna have one arm on each side with you desired computer monitor and on the other bretford stand you wanna do the same and then put them side-by-side!!! It looks awesome and will impress your friends and other competitive gamer friends!! Absolute MUST BUY!! It does take a while to put them in the desk, but in the end it's worth it, and then that's when I found out later that there were desk clamps to install on the edge of the table, but oh well.

I have just mounted my late 2013 VESA iMac to it, after upgrading my from late 2009. The stand is durable, it's a great way to keep things off of your desk. I didn't mind drilling at all as i will have the stand for many many years, and will continue to mount my computer in this way. A definite recommend if you want to clear things off of your desk. My country style desk can be repaired if i no longer want to have the mount, a little bit of liquid wood and sanding and my desk would be good as new.
