    Beware: This mount is not for the small-medium sized desks!

    • Written by from Houston

    I think this mount's high ratings may be misleading about its usability. It isn't a poorly designed arm, but it is a design that caters to larger-sized desks. I give it three stars because it lacks in universality—some minor design tweaks could probably fix this. The dimension you should pay close attention to is the depth of your table-top. The arm's hinge allows it to be pulled outward or folded inward; the problem is the folding-in part. It's span (when folded/collapsed) is quite large. It is possible to circumvent this problem by swiveling the arm off to one side, and then twisting the screen so that it points back at you; but this is an awkward look and feel, and it puts a lot of stress on the clamping device that mounts the arm to the desk. All in all, this LCD Arm is built well, but it is built for those who can accommodate it.

    Not much space savings

    • Written by from Alpharetta

    I bought this for my new 27" iMac because I wanted to be able to utilize the space under the entire computer and have some ability to move the screen. While this arm is built like a tank, as many have stated it really does not seem to be ideal for the 27" iMac. Ultimately, because of the weight of the 27" iMac the arm must be tightened so it is not set up to move the screen around as easily or freely as one would hope. Moreover the clearance from the bottom of the iMac to the desk surface is nominal - I am tall but not unusually tall at about 6' 2" and I still have to tilt the monitor up. Even my 5' 6" wife thinks the monitor is too low. I will keep it for now but may buy something else.

    Will not work on the 21.5" iMac

    My goal was to lower the base about 1 inch or 2 but you can't remove the base. This product was not clear on the specs. when I ordered the part for $169. I will be returning the part.

    Good stand for 27" Display, however a little short

    • Written by from OTTAWA

    I bought this for use with my 27" Thunderbolt Display, and functionally it works great. The tension needs to be adjust to almost the highest setting, but it does hold steady, and it gives you a wide range of positions you can place the display in. As other reviewers have noted, you will probably need a larger desk to really take advantage of it.

    Cons: The one odd thing I noticed about it is that, even fully extended upwards, it is still almost half an in shorter than the stand that comes with the display itself. I had hoped to use it for a standing workstation, but I think it is going to be too short for that.

    It is good to have it with my 30' Cinema Display. However, it is too expensive!!!!
