To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not 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.
I needed a solution to be able to adjust the monitor position frequently as required, But this wasn't the best option.. the height is not as easy to change, as you need to have the tools to unscrew, and screw the arm every time you want to change height. I use another one in amazon as well, it works better for me here: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B078H1YQ7S/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Goods: -Good built quality, and durable all metal material - Adjustable in all directions
Bads: - Not easy to adjust height - very heavy if you have a small desk - Not all tools are included - If you have an angled desktop, the arm will keep drifting with the monitor
I got this for my 27" monitor. Very solid. I have a standing desk and I so I switch from standing and sitting in a drafting chair. I have a sweet spot where all I adjust is the tilt depending on sitting or standing.
If you don't need rapid height adjustment this mount is great. Though you could leave the clamp a bit loose and then you could slide the arm up and down grabbing from the base with a bit of applied force (you wouldn't want it so loose that it wiggles down the shaft from regular use).
The tilt is not properly described, this one was a bonus for me. When it said 15 degrees I assumed that would be 15 degrees either way from 90. But it actually tilts TO 15 degrees. I love overkill!
One thing I would have liked is a 0 indication on the back of the mount at the pivot point so I could square the monitor without eyeballing as there is no physical feeling that lets you know.
This is a nice, straightforward monitor arm. It swivels and pivots and swings in all directions. I wish it was just a few inches taller. My monitor -- Samsung U28E590D has the VESA mounts right at the top, so this arm only holds the monitor about the same height as the Samsung stand. I made a disc out of a piece of 2x4 lumber to put under the desk clamp, and that gets the monitor up a bit taller. Nice little cable management clips. The adapter to use a grommet hole in the desk (rather than the c-clamp) is nice, but the slots in it are too small to fit any cable end through.
So overall the quality is decent and solid, the joints are bit hard to rotate or move but are accatable. My main issue with this mount is that it will bring your monitor so much farwars if you decide to show the stand right in the middle of the monitor, so I solved my issue by bringing it aside a bit, but my purpose for buying this item is to make my setup clean and neat, also having their logo right on the mount at the bottom was also something that distracts the clean setup, I hope Vivo can actually consider those small details in their next version of this mount. Overall I’m not saying its a bad mount, but it did not satisfy my exact needs
This stand is great! Unfortunately I received one with a scratched main pole but Amazon gave me 5 bucks for it so no complaints. It works perfectly with my 34 inch ultrawide monitor. Please note that the weight limit is 17.6 lbs (as on the box) and not 22 lbs, I kept some markers in place to test sag and saw none after about 6 days with no movement. Last complaint; it's a little tricky to get the monitor to be perfectly parallel with the desk surface as any tiny angle can be seen a mile off. Other than that, it's great.
Allows for a huge range of motion and is very compact when pushed against a wall. My only issue is that if you're using a monitor on the bigger side of the mentioned range it could use some additional support between the clamp and desk. It was very hard to tighten the clamp underneath and before i added additional support it would lean ever so slightly to one side. Additionally i found it difficult to have the arm adjusted in a way that allowed for easy movement and also for it to be sturdy. When i have the monitor set all the way to one side it would just slide back to a more neutral spot. This could've been due to the lack of support rather than the arm itself. Lastly, if you're using with a desk where the desktop is not securely fastened to the stand , like a lot of ikea desks, be careful you don't put excess weight on the back side of desk or push up as it easily gets off balanced and could disassemble the desk if you're reckless.
So I searched a lot for a monitor arm that has swivel and two elbows for the best experience. Almost no monitor arm advertises that they work with ultra wide monitors. Well, I saw that this arm supports 22lbs or something like that and my LG 32" ultra wide is only 16lbs so I gave it a go. This thing is great. It fully supports my giant monitor with ease, no sagging at all. Very well built and heavy duty, easy to put together and install, and best of all its very inexpensive. I would highly recommend anyone get this mount. The only complaint I have about this is that the advertised weight limit on the Amazon page is higher than what is written on the box of the product. I don't know which one is right, but one this is for sure and it can easily hold a 16lb ultra wide monitor.
I bought the STAND-V001M variation of this mount vs the STAND-V001. The main advantage of the "M" variant to me is that it's double-jointed in the middle of the arm and allows for a little more flexibility in positioning. I also prefer that the edges on the arm are rounded for a more finished look.
Assembly was straightforward. I appreciate the clips for cable management and for holding the hex keys so you don't loose them. The VESA mounting plate fit perfectly in the 100x100 configuration of my monitor. I like the simple, clean look of the flat base plate compared to other mounts that have a bulkier base. Although this might be a contributing factor to the only negative point I detail below. I have this C-clamp mounted on an Ikea desk that's 1.25" (3cm) thick with an extra piece of wood of the same thickness mounted underneath the tabletop for added support. The knob on the clamp is nice and big which allows you to get a tight mount. The monitor stays in place and shows no sign of sagging on the tilt joint after using it for about 3 weeks. The movement of the arm for swivel, rotate and extending are smooth.
The only problem I see right away is the strength of the joint between the post and the base plate. As you can see in the photo, there is about a 2° to 3° lean in the post. I have a 10 lbs 27" Dell monitor that is mounted 4" (10cm) off the table, the arm is almost centred on the post, and the base of the mount is off to the side. If the post is already leaning to the side in this configuration, I can't see it handling a larger or heavier monitor or having the arm mounted even further up the post. The mount is rated for 17.6 lbs. There is another review that shows the post with a 30° lean, so be aware. I may end up moving the mount plate to be centred on the monitor, but that is not the ideal configuration for me.
Hi there, read this carefully, is an advice: I was actually looking to buy a triple-monitor stand when I saw these. Then I decided to buy three of these single-monitor stands and use then in a triple monitor setup. The result is awesome because I have now independent height adjustment and I can place my three monitors where I need them. No limitations of any kind. If I move one of them, the other two STAYS unaffected in their places. On top of this we're talking about of up to 32" each. Also, in the future I can split this setup in any combination without pain. Cheers!!!
I gave this item 5 stars not because it's particular amazing or better than other display monitors; I'm frankly not qualified to offer such an assessment as this is the first desk mount I have ever purchased. That said, it has changed my life! My desk has tripled in size! Honestly, I consistently think about how I don't regret paying for this item. Every time I sit I my desk, I wonder why I didn't purchase this item sooner. Also, and this won't apply to all users, but my gf and I share a computer desk. It's 6' long so it's not too cramped or anything, but we have two chairs and one is much better than the other. So whoever is at the computer desk first gets the good chair. I'm working on upgrading this next but that's irrelevant. The two chairs are different heights which makes a difference with regards to screen height. It used to be, I would prop a highlighter under my monitor stand to adjust the viewing angle depending on which chair i was sitting in. It was also on top of a stack of textbooks that took up a lot of space. Obviously this student set up was not appropriate to a working class person like myself. This monitor stand has categorically improved my quality of life.
