4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - More flexible than the images would suggest. Rotates at every joint, easy to get the monitor exactly where you want it.
- Super strength! I mounted an LG 34UM95, a 34" monitor, and this arm holds it like a champ.
- Clamp is good and firm.
- Cable routing built in.
- Looks like a cybernetic arm!
- Every single part is huge and heavy, all metal is thick and inspires confidence that it's solid as a rock.

Cons: - A small plastic part, which thankfully is only decorative, was broken off when I received it. It doesn't really bother me but I'd have liked it even more if it hadn't been broken. It's not worth sending it back and going without the arm, though, so that should tell you how much I'd hate to go without it.

Other Thoughts: This is THE arm to use if you want a VESA arm for some of the larger desktop monitors. With a 30 lbs capacity, it's more than up to the task, and provides outstanding monitor mobility.

1 out of 5 eggsI wanted to like it

Pros: The clamp does mount very securely to the desk.

Cons: The first thing I noticed about the Ergotron MX after I removed it from the box is that it is not as nice looking as the pictures make it look. The aluminum is polished but not all that well. I could have moved passed the disappointing finish if it functioned well. I am mounting a Dell U3014. The biggest problem I had with the MX is that it is unable to adjust the height of the monitor to eye level. I'm looking down at the monitor a good 4 inches and I am only 5'10". The MX also did not allow the monitor to swing easily at the rotation point at the base. I really wanted to like this mount because it looked cool but it just doesn't function well.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of those things you never knew you needed.

Pros: The ONLY arm I could find to use with 30lb/27" monitors.

Built like a ROCK. I don't think this thing will ever break and even if the spring loses tension over time, you can adjust it tighter.
Fairly painless to assemble/install and stays extremely secure, even with my 27lb monior.
Looks very slick and depending on your table, stays hidden.
Cable management.

Cons: Price is steep unless you can find a deal, this is my biggest issue too as it's literally the only mount on the market to support large monitors.
Cable management gets tricky when you factor in your mouse/keyboard/more.

Other Thoughts: Despite the price, I think mounts are something any serious computer user should own as they completely change the way you interface/enjoy your experience everyday. My keyboard never gets in the way of anything and my monitor just floats on my table, amazing.

5 out of 5 eggsCan be Modified for less than 10 lbs Monitors in 5 min

Pros: Owned since 2009...Very well made... Tension can be adjusted with Allen Wrench...

*Monitors less then 10 Lbs... (Adjusting the Tilt tensions)...see Other thoughts

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: For Monitors less then 10 Lbs...
Look at the springs just behind the plate that attaches to your monitor...
The springs can be disabled (or sprung)..
Take a screw driver and pry the end of the spring wire (black in color) from the the metal tabs on each side..(Note: You can disable 1 or both springs depending on the weight of your monitor.. I disabled both)
This with take all the tension off the tilt adjustment and works great with my 19 and 24 Led monitors both weigh 8 Lbs. or less... And there is still enough tension to adjust the tilt with no issues... Now use an allen wrench to adjust the tension on the top arm ( allen screw id located inside the top of the arm)... Hope the Helps!!!!!!

5 out of 5 eggshigh quality

Pros: I really like this monitor stand. It is very high quality. I currently have two of these stands supporting a 27" 1440p panel each.

I like the flexible mounting options and all the adjustments you can make.

If you're running 3 monitors in surround you could pick up three of these vs. the large 3 monitor stand on desk type.

It is a well though out product. There is a loom to route your cables, so everything looks really neat and tidy.

Highly recommended product.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggssuperb destop mount for 27" monitor

Pros: Solid, sturdy. Handles the 27" heavy monitor very well. Extremely Easy installation. Saves a lot of room on the desk.

Cons: non really.

Other Thoughts: I have a South Korean Crossover 27: LED LCD and the original mount was flimsy and got damaged very quickly. I searched and found this Ergotron desk mount and it is exactly what I need. Now I have a bigger space on my desk and more flexibility in moving the LCD the way I like.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Quality of Life Purchase

Pros: For the longest time I wanted a Vesa arm, but before this one came along there were no desk mounts that could handle heavier/larger screens. You either had to wall-mount them or convert other hardware in a haphazard way.

This one purchase is one of my most beloved investment for my computer workstation. I use a large drafting table and this allows me to place all sorts of items, including the keyboard under my main screen. It cleans up the work area so much and in such a convenient way that I would be absolutely frustrated if I had to go back to not using an arm.

The build quality is amazing and I have had absolutely zero issues over the last 4+ years of using the arm. It also includes very nice cable management and the movement of the screen is fluid once you calibrate the tension spring to your screen's weight.

You definitely get what you pay for and I can't imagine them improving on the product. Out of the gate it leave little to nothing to be desired.

If you were ever on the fence as to if the investment would be worth it, buy now. The greatest thing about this stand as far as cost goes, is that you can use it for much longer than the rest of your computer hardware will survive. It's like a really high quality case investment (Lian Li PC-A71 ;) You may go through multiple generations of screens, motherboards, and other electronic hardware, but you will be hard pressed to need to replace this.

From a business standpoint, it will DEFINITELY improve productivity if the particular task involves being at your desk a lot. Especially useful for sound engineers, CAD/Modelers/shaders... and any profession where you "do stuff" at your desk and are shuffling things around looking for more deskspace/room.

I regularly will slide "everything" under the stand to the back of the drafting table to clear enough room to work on whatever I need to while in front of my computer screen. This could be a soldering station, doing sketches, putting together mechanical parts... anything. Also great for even college work when you need to reference text books or other materials.

Cons: There are a few cons but none of them are really directly tied to the product, but instead to the nature of Vesa arms in general.

The biggest issue I had was installing the arm and positioning it/tightening it. The problem was because I did it solo and in a cramped working area. I strongly recommend pulling out the desk and following the instructions but with at least a second person there to help you. It will save you an amazing amount of sore muscles, headache, and frustration.

A second *sort of* con is that most stock cables for power, screens, and USB connections do not take Vesa arms into account. Depending on your setup, desk size, and computer placement, you may need to invest into longer cables to account for placement of the base of the stand on a desk. For example:

If I wanted to position the base of the stand on the far left of my desk away from my tower I would have to get cables that are double the length of stock cables as they have to first travel to the base of where the Vesa arm is mounted, then up the arm in its internal cable management section. You could very well just leave the cables loose but it would be amazingly unsightly. *at least double the length* of stock cables.

The arm itself accounting for cable connection to the screen eats up about 27"-30" of cable. Add on to this the distance between your computer and where you want the "base" of the Vesa stand to be, and that's the length of cable you should use. This should be measured "as the cable is routed" an extra couple of inches over is better than a couple of inches under.

Last con

At the time I couldn't get it from NewEgg ;-) I am glad to see they are now selling it (I was searching to get a second).

Other Thoughts: I purchased this, what must be now 3 years ago now and have it matched to an Alvin Workmaster Drafting Table (4'x6') holding an older Double Sight DS- 263N. The monitor is listed as 23 pounds, unsure if that is with or without the stand. IIRC it is specced to hold "Apple" 30" type displays. Remember to account for the base being removed when determining the weight.

At it's maximum vertical high position the bottom of the 263N has about 4.5" of clearance. I usually have the height closer to 2-3" of clearance during normal use. This could be increased easily if a block of some sort were used at the base as there is a large amount of room for the foot to incorporate thicker desks... Up to, if needed, about 3" thick

Comes with all the hardware you need to mount, no need to purchase any tools Mounting at both ends (screen and foot) are highly customizable and I would be amazed if there were a workspace or screen out there that this wasn't compatible with.

I made up a custom pair of aluminum foot plates to protect my drafting table but that isn't really required for normal mounting/use.

In theory I could still have it mounted while my drafting table were in a tilted position since at the screen join there is tilt and swivel junction.

5 out of 5 eggsWatch the weight limit

Pros: It seems to work well.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The weight range is 15-30 pounds. If the monitor is too light (even close to 15 pounds) the monitor will tip up - the spring is too strong.

I was upset about the 180 degree roation about the base. I took the base apart and filed off the projection. Now mine rotate 360 degrees.

5 out of 5 eggsA+ Quality Product

Pros: Moves almost everywhere you want it to. Solid construction. They include a ton of hardware for different set ups. Installing it was a breeze. Bolt holes were a perfect match for my cintiq.

Cons: The only con I have so far is that this beast is probably going to obliterate my flimsy Staples desk (I was planning on buying a better one anyways).

Other Thoughts: This is an awesome product. I knew when I saw the polished aluminum that I was going to be satisfied with my purchase. If you own a cintiq this is a must for you.

4 out of 5 eggsNot as much vertical adj. as I would like

Pros: It's a well built device that is simple to use. It looks pretty cool, and it's doing the job well, with one caveat.

Cons: There is very little vertical adjustment. I can only get my 22" monitor 6" from the top of my desk; I'd prefer it to be at least 2" higher.

Other Thoughts: If you need your monitors to be elevated a lot, look for another mount.
