We've bought three of these now. Apparently they are sending out "Version 2", which is clearly cheap and inferior.
V1: dual articulate arms V2: some swivel hinge thing
V1: Thick, robust metal and hinges with plastic covers V2: Cheap welded steal, painted black, looks like scrap metal
Seriously, version 2 is total garbage, and they're just riding off the reputation from Version 1. I feel like they should have to make a new category to reflect this obviously cheaper, low quality, maximum profit version 2. If you could see it in real life next to their own Version 1, you would not buy this cheap welded scrap.
I purchased this monitor mount recently for work as I have a small (width wise) desk. So I decided to purchase for myself a computer arm to free up some space.
It did free up some space. Installing it was a nightmare at first because my desk is about an inch away from a wall but once we figured out how to install it with this obstacle, it was fine. My issues with this product is as follows:
1. the right monitor is lopsided. No matter how hard I try to adjust it, the right monitor is just too loose on the bracket and therefore is extremely lopsided.
2. These are not made of gas springs so in order to position or move the monitors is a pain and is very difficult.
3. Because I have two 24" inch monitors, I could not position them properly in order to ergonomic - meaning I could not position them so that my head is not constantly shifting from left to right.
4. The biggest problem of them all is that the stand itself is WAY TOO SHORT. I am 5"8 and I have it set to the highest possible and it is still way too short for me. I find myself constantly hunching my neck down in order to be comfortable. I was getting bad neck pain from doing this.
For all the above reasons, I gave this a 1 star. For the price you do get a very basic computer arm. So if you are looking for just that, than this product is for you.
I was unsure at first, seemed like everyplace on amazon sold this exact same product. I was wrong.
It came to my doorstep STUPID fast. Like you think you know about fast, but really.. You don't. I unboxed this beautiful bastard faster then any child at Christmas. After looking at it for a minute, I quickly figured out how easy setup would be. Everyone here talking about getting the monitors on the bar with two people are clearly un-dedicated. Just face your monitors downwards, put the open part of the arms towards the bar, slide it in place like butter, and tighten. Not hard.
All I can say is buy this thing, and buy it before they run out. It's built like a rock. It's held my two monitors in place perfectly. Setup took maybe 4 minutes if you're not stupid and generally speaking I laugh like a little girl every time I see my desk now. Attached is a photo of my setup now.. All thanks to VIVO and their beautiful monitor stand.
One thing, tighten the bolts. People here say their monitors are sagging but it's because they're weak little unpatriotic cats. Just tighten up with your glorious muscles and you'll be fine.
Seriously, buy this, you'll have room for pigeons (or cats) to hangout under your monitors.. like me!
I have added the monitor stand to my stand up desk. At first, I used the 4” clamp and I liked that I was able to come up with a way to test this out. With the 4” clamp, the
Height-Adjustable Standing Desk - VARIDESK Pro Plus 36 - Black
could not go down all of the way, but I was ok with that. This weekend I drilled a hole in the top portion of the desk and attached the mount using the 4” grommet. Now the stand up desk is fully adjustable.
When I ordered the mount, I didn’t realize that the 4” grommet would work for passing it through a desk with a hole in it. I think that is helpful feature for those of you that have a desk where you cannot clamp and don’t want to drill a hole.
The monitor mount is more stable than setting a monitor on top of a stand. One of my old monitors did not have the VESA mount, so I left it on the stand. The old monitor would wobble and the new monitor would barely move.
I really like that it is fully adjustable! I have two 24” monitors on it. I have offset the monitor mount to fit my desk configuration. It has allowed me to have the left monitor arm fully extended and then the right one it adjusted to be next to it. The included wrenches allow me to adjust the tension of the arms.
I will try to add pictures with the new monitors on it. [Update - Added final photos]

Increíble relación calidad/precio, viene en una caja muy pequeña, pero no hay que alarmarse, la calidad de construcción es muy buena, viene bien ajustado para brindar estabilidad a los componentes. Está pintado en color negro mate, el tubo principal es delgado pero de material muy fuerte, los brazos también son delgados pero increíblemente firmes, la instalación es muy sencilla, no tarde más de 20 minutos en instalarlo. Incluye todos los tornillos necesarios y herramientas para su ajuste, solo se necesita un desarmador Phillips (punta de cruz) para un par de tornillos. En conclusión, estoy muy contento con mi compra, los monitores están más estables que con la base de fabrica o la base no empotrable que utilizaba antes.
Not worth your money. Great for general office use for a large desk if you wish to have fixed dual monitors side by side and strain your neck. However, if you have a desk like mine (120cm by 60cm) and wish to have one 24.5 inch monitor in front of you and another set to the side for ergonomics, it simply won't do, the arms are too short to allow that sort of adjustment.
Additionally, account for the fact that you have to create around 15cm of space for the mount if your desk is up against a wall and wish to adjust the arms, this stand will cause you to lose a lot of open desk space once installed. Moreover, if you wish to adjust it often as well, the pole grips will slide down and will result in further adjustments.
I recommend others get the pneumatic arm if you wish to move around a lot and want greater flexibility or the longer arms for better extension if you wish to have one monitor set in front of you and the other off to the side. If i could get it exchanged for the pneumatic arm or another VIVO set, I definitely would.
This is a pretty good value for this price range. There are a couple of things to consider before you buy:
1) There is no separate height adjustment between the arms. if you have two identical (or nearly identical) monitors, then this is no problem. But if you have have mismatched monitors, they may end up at different heights depending on their size/vesa mount/etc.
2) The arm length is shorter than I would like. My side monitor couldn't reach where I wanted it to when i used the table-edge-clamp style. I had to drill a hole in the middle of my desk and use the grommet mount to have the arms reach where I wanted them to.
Otherwise, I'm quite satisfied with this purchase.
I got not complai about the v002, it fill well on the bracket and it's sturdy. You save alot of spaces with that mount. I got some issues with the v002f (the one with a base). There was a missing black plastic head of one of the screw for the vesa plate. Also you need to make a counter weight with the arm or your mount will fall in front of you and you'll broke your monitor. The las complaint about the v002f it's that I'm not able to correct the gap between my two identical monitor. Theres is a place where you can adjust those but the gap is so bigger that I can't correct it totally.
If you don't bother two much for having a gap between two identical monitor, you can go for it or else it will tease and bother you ... Maybe I got the same probleme with the v002 (the one with C-bracket) but I got two differents brand of monitor and they are centered without any adjustment ... I don't know what it will do If I put same brand monitor.
