I'd been waiting quite a while for my new monitor to be delivered, so obviously when it was I was so stoked to put it on this mount. I attached the screen to the arm and DROOP, almost parallel to the floor. I tightened the bolt that is supposed to make it not tilt and no matter how tight I tightened it, the screen still drooped. It's a nice looking arm and moves great but, it is useless for my 32", 14lb curved monitor (Samsung G7). Maybe I just got a faulty one seeing as how the other reviews rave about this thing but, it was a complete waste of time for me.
This doesn't have a way to add tension to the two pivot/turret rotation points on the arms. The connection where the base connects to the first arm and where the first arm connects to the 2nd arm, there is no way to add tension to this rotation. There is a locking pin to ensure it doesn't come apart but this pin does not add tension to the rotation. For this reason I have found my monitor moving unintentionally do to the slightest vibration (me typing!) just a little bit at a time but very annoying.
If your product ships in the fully upright position, it'll block the height adjustment tension screw, as some 1* reviews have noticed. I got around this by applying a ton of downward force on it, once installed, to expose that screw and reduce the tension.
The tilt is also messed up -- I have it fully tightened but the tilt is still sagging. I might replace this or tinker some more when my new monitor arrives next month.
Do yourself a favor and find a better one. I own a 35 inch Acer Z35P and it cant hold it, even though its only 20 lbs without stand, it sags and I spent several days attempting to adjust.
Also the included USB is malfunctioning, giving error under device manager unknown usb device port reset failed.
Aside from that it works I guess. For a smaller monitor it would be perfect, or a very very light weight ultrawide. If you have a 20 pounder, this wont work well. I would return it, but I dont want to hassle with shipping fees and end up paying a quarter of the cost to return it, so I am stuck with it, but not happy. Also no contact number to contact their company to give feedback. Avoid this.
The monitor stand wasn't possible to be installed with my fairly standard desk & large monitor setup. As a result, I couldn't use it. I have set up monitor arms and similar things many times before, but it was more issues with the sizing/design of the setup than user error.
I also felt that the quality was OK with a somewhat cheap and outdated design. These mounts are expensive but it's probably better to go up one tier if you care about aesthetics and a successful installation.
There are two mounting options: (1) in a hole in the middle of your desk, or (2) on the edge with a clamp. I tried (1) at first, but the plate to hold the desk grommet was not large enough to cover the hole in my desk. I was able to position it in a way that did cover, but the grommet wouldn’t tighten. The screw kept falling out of the monitor hole.
So I switched to the (2) clamp mount.
The monitor mounting screws were too long to be attached to my monitor. So, installation would be impossible.
I cut down the screws to fit snugly, but unfortunately one of them snapped off in the monitor. That was my bad, but it was a last resort to get this to work – I wouldn't recommend trying that.
First off, the build quality of this item is really good. The entire thing, except for the cable management compartments is completely metal. The instructions were clear except for a few things. But other than that, it was almost exactly what I was looking for.
At first, it was a little tall for me, but luckily the adjustability was still there, so that could be fixed. But out of the box, it stood on my desk at about 5'5. But while I had it, it did what it was supposed to do, and cleared some desk clutter.
HOWEVER: As I was routing cables trough my set up to plug in my LG 1440p 144hz monitor, the stand began to rotate, AFTER I tightened everything to where I liked it. It rotated to the point where it was fully extended, and it almost broke my desk by snapping the portion it was attached to. It then slipped off my desk and slammed my monitor into the wall. Luckily it wasn't damaged and works just fine. The desk however, not so lucky. There are 4 pretty good scratch marks on the top, and deep indents on the bottom where the arm was located. If it would have kept going, instead of slipping off, I would be in the market for a new desk, and a new monitor.
So, if you're looking for an arm that is very heavy, and have a thick desk, and don't mind the arm slipping off your desk from time to time, this is the one for you.
I tried to mount a 23lb TV to this mount and it would not support it. The arm itself is strong enough but the joint that holds the TV can’t be locked and the screen would always point down. I mounted a lighter TV instead, and it still won’t hold its arm position. It gradually drifts until it hits something or settles where gravity wants it. there needs to be a way to lock the arms in position. I do not recommend this product.
Defeating the entire purpose - the tilt pivot forever dips even though my monitor is greater than half the capacity of stated max weight limit. :( I would have rather paid more for an item that functioned properly and am not about to disassemble the thing. I've calibrated the tension and have tried different positioning and it's quite annoying to have the inevitable dip down. Value? Yes if the angle tilt functioned. I have a 34 ultrawide curved. Still looks cool I guess.
1) The plate that mounts to the back of the monitor has a part that is factory installed (i.e. can NOT be adjusted) that was turned crooked so the monitor doesn't sit level. See pics.
2) That adjustable portion of that same part allows you to adjust the angle of the monitor higher or lower BUT I couldn't get it to tighten all the way so I can't get the monitor to sit at the up/down view angle that I want.
3) For MY MONITOR...the large plastic washers that are for curved monitors are too short to go on the inside between the mounting plate and the monitor's screw holes and too long to go on the outside so the screws are loose on the mounting plate... see pics.
4) Naturally, support is only available Mon through Friday which, to me, is a negative.
In short, this product is strong its quality but the mounting to the back of my screen was too big. (Worst thing that could happen to order an arm at this price.) In short, I made it work but I was disappointed. If you have a 34inch ultrawide from LG don't order this because it just won't fit perfectly in the square in the back. All in all the arm holds the screen but I am worried since it's not snug in place in the square but rather offset using two long screws and 2 short to make up with the elevation of the metal.
