4 out of 5 eggs Really nice stand 02/24/2014

This review is from: Planar 997-5253-00 Black Dual Monitor Stand for LCD Displays

Pros:

+Well made, high qualikty
+Easy adjustment of tilt and rotate after monitors installed
+Uses little desk space, less than half vs having a stand under each monitor
+Balances two HP ZR24W 24" monitors well
+Works with monitors in mixed landscape/portrait
mode
+VESA mount of the stand is coupled to the arm with a pre-tensioned coil spring, which gives some resiliency and lets you adjust the monitor tilt and rotate by hand without loosening any hardware or fussing.

Cons:

Doesn't damp vibration exceptionally well, so if there is a bump on your desk, or vibration in the floor, the monitors will shake a bit for a few seconds. This is because the monitors are suspended on the end of the two mounting arms with a pre-loaded coil spring assembly, to provide for easy micro-adjustement with no tools. In the end you have a mass on the end of a rigid but still very slightly flexible arm, coupled through a slightly springy mount and it will have some resonant frequency. Disturb it, and it oscillates a bit as it returns to its normal position. No way around this unless that structure is changed or the arm-to-monitor mount is damped with something vibration-absorbent.

Other Thoughts:

If not for the vibration issue when my desk (a heavy Steelcase with 36 x 72" steel/formica top) is bumped, or even if I type hard, I'd give this 5 stars instead of 4. I'm going to try to dampen the springy coupling with some dense foam or bungees and see if I can make it better. This may be nit-picking to some people, so don't let this dissuade you from purchasing this otherwise excellent stand.
