I wish I could say it was so easy I didn't even need the instructions, but I definitely needed them. I really liked that you can mount it on the edge of a desk, or through a hole in the desk. The edge mount is nice and low profile, so it doesn't make the desk come off the wall. I like the adjustable springs for the monitor so you can use different weighted ones, and it won't be an issue putting your display wherever you want. BIGGEST COMPLAINT: when the arm is fully extended, the joint where the monitor mounts drifts a little to the left or right, never just stays where its put. Also, my 3/4 inch desk was too thin. Still 5 stars, and better than the stock stand. (I recommend watching my review video)
I've actually purchased five of these now. They were pretty much the cheapest 3 way adjustable monitor arm I found on Amazon, and since they have been working ok for me, I have added more as I need them.
As others have stated, they do have some plastic components in them - notably the pivots where the arms join together. While I would prefer them to have metal there, so far I haven't had trouble with any of them. I have everything from an old 17" up to a newer 28" HD monitor and it hasn't had trouble holding any of them. In fact I had to reduce the lift on one of my 26" ones because it wanted to come up too easy.
The mounting is pretty straightforward, however it's a pain to get the screws in if you are using the clamp-on mount. I found it easiest to take the clamp apart, insert the screws for the post and tighten them, then reassemble the clamp. The reason it's so difficult is because there isn't much clearance for the supplied wrench, and the screws are intentionally hard to turn to keep them from loosening, so it takes forever just making 1/3 turn of the screw then having to re-insert the wrench over and over.
The first few I purchased just came with one set of screws to attach the monitor and no spacers, but the latest one I just received also includes some longer screws and spacers which may solve the problem with recessed back monitors. None of my monitors need them, but I know a lot of the bad reviews here were because of problems getting it to fit in a recess. Sounds like they listened and changed their product.
So overall I think they are decent for the money. If you are in a high-demand environment where the monitors are constantly being moved around, the plastic pivots might be a little concerning. But if you are like me and rarely move them, this is a decent arm. I mean...I have purchased 5 of them after all...
I was so excited to replace my current monitor stand but this didn’t fit my LG ultrawide curved monitor since the vesa Mount doesn’t fit the inset of my monitor. I’ve had multiple types of clamp on stands before and I’ve never run into this problem before. Also glad it didn’t work out since this is the first time that I’ve seen the piece that attaches the arm to the pole be made of... plastic? All the others I’ve used in the past have been metal & I trust that to be sturdier specially with such a big monitor.
I have quite a few monitor arms in my procession. Most of them are either bulky, expensive, expensively bulky, cheaply made, or bulky expensive and cheaply made. Not this one. Not only it's heavy enough to be very stable on my desk, it's light enough that I can move my monitor easily. The best part though, is that I now have most of desk back. I push it back when I need my desk and pull it forward when I need to read the fine prints on my monitor.
1. It came without some crews and rubber to holding the cable. I didn't recognize until I almost finish set up. 2. It can't hold the Alienware 34 inch as describe . 16.10 pounds. It can't adjust and fix the position. Just highest or lowest. 3. You asking return ? Yea, I wish. I am technician and I need it asap. I set-up for my customer gaming desk. I lose my money for this stupid thing. (For the another Monitor in the picture, luckily, I bought another brand name and it work perfectly). 4. After 1 month, the handle is weak and it get a gap as picture. Today is 1 month and one day. Over return.
I was a little worried when I ordered this, due to comments from others. I am happy to report, the arm has a very sturdy clamp, is built well, and has no trouble holding and moving a large monitor around. I recently converted my office to a sit/stand setup. I was originally going to buy a very expensive arm, but it was out of stock, so I went with this one to hold me over. It works so well, I cancelled the other order!
This is one of the few arms that has a 25" lift height and is adjustable. I can move my monitor to a standing position easily. The joints are pretty tight and the arm can hold your monitor without moving out of position from you bumping the desk. With that said, the vibration does carry up the arm to your monitor. I don't think there is much that can be done about that other that to use a wider foot on the clamp. Possibly a sturdier desktop would stop that as well. The cable routing system...well, can't fit my monitor cable into it very easily, or maybe I was just too impatient. Used Velcro tied to strap on the cables and the problem was solved. The lower cable catcher works well though and you can put your allen wrenches in there so you have them handy if needed!
Mounting was easy, you can put the plate on your monitor, then lift it into place and put in the remaining two screws to complete the process. I can definitely recommend this to anyone looking to buy.
Bought my first one in April and just got my second one today. The first one was used to mount a 28" ASUS 4K above 2 of my Asus 24" 2K screens.
This second one that came today was used to mount a 32" TCL ROKU TV to my right and I clamped it to the desk. Look.... these things are made in China. Most of the same units are sold by different sellers with goofy, various names. I have no clue who "ErGear" is and it's just the name someone came up with. There are gobs of weird company names selling very similar units for more money. If I had to make up names, stuff like "happyLife" "dongtech" or "flowerPurpose" or whatever weird name someone comes up with. This unit will hold your monitor and you will be ale to adjust it exactly what you want it. I highly recommend it and if I choose to add a fifth screen to my setup, I am buying this again. You can push it back, pull it up, tilt it side to side. back and forth. You can mount it as high or as low on the pole as you want. fantastic for the money, zero reason to spend any more of your hard earned money.
Considering the price I do not have any complaints. I ended up setting up mine upside down because of the design of my desk. That just seemed like the better and easier option as I had to drill a hole above, I didn't want to drill into the desk.
In terms of design the arm seems to be reasonably well built, the casing is plastic but that is fine by me. The arm was more than strong enough to hold up the monitor, I had to reduce the spring tension from the factory setting as it was too strong for the monitors I tested. Cable management was adequate and simple enough. Adjustability is good, more than enough for what I need.
I have mine setup to the side of the monitor so it's stretch out to the left, this therefore means that the center of gravity is shifted away from the pole that the arm is connected to. This means that it wobbles a bit when I am adjusting the brightness or another setting on the monitor (this would be reduced if I had the pole setup in the middle). Fortunately my desk is solid so typing or banging the desk etc. does not cause it to wobble.
An improvement I would suggest is the addition of a detachable "neck" (the part you screw on to the monitor - no idea what it's really called". With this one you have to connect the entire arm to the monitor then lift the whole thing on to the pole. It would be much easier if the VESA neck was detachable so that you could setup the arm fully and just connect the monitor.
One other observation to note is that the neck isn't great for adjusting the tilt. If you want to move the tilt up slightly you have to pull it up a lot so that it "locks" (if not it just drops all the way back down) and then move it back into the position you want slowly.
Overall considering the price and my use cases I gave it 4 stars.
