4 out of 5 eggs Need another 2 inches 10/06/2016

This review is from: Dual LCD Monitor Desk Mount Stand Heavy Duty Fully Adjustable 2 Screens upto 27"

Pros: Very sturdy, doesn't wobble
Cable routing

Cons: I'm 6 feet tall and the pole is barely tall enough to get my monitors to the proper/desired height. Before I bought this, it looked like the band around the pole was a quick release latch for height adjustment...it's not, it's a cable clamp. I will probably have to put a block of wood between my desk and the mounting plate to give me an extra couple inches of height. And to think making the pole a bit longer would've cost the manufacturer mere pennies....unfortunate.

**My monitors and keyboard/mouse sit on the same desk surface. If your desk has a keyboard tray, or if your monitors sit on a second tier on your desk (where you'd be mounting this stand) then the height issue probably won't affect you.**

Other Thoughts: Idea for future design improvements: Replace the Allen screw that clamps the monitor arms to the pole with a quick release lever similar to what most bike seats use so users don't have to go digging in their toolbox for an Allen wrench to adjust height.

OCZ ARC 100 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: After mail in rebate, the Arc 100 is a SIGNIFICANTLY better performer than the similarly priced Kingston V300 or PNY Optima.

Cons: Enclosure is moderately thick steel and is heavy compared to other SSDs I've used. SSDs don't need THAT much protection, it just adds weight to the device you're putting it in. For desktops, it doesn't matter much, but it might for laptops or external enclosures. The Arc 100 is 100 grams, which is between 20g and 50g more than other common SSDs. (still... just a fraction of a pound)

Other Thoughts: Using an XFX nForce 750i motherboard, could not boot Windows 7. Seems to be a compatibility issue with that specific chipset or the motherboard BIOS (which was latest release). Worked fine in another system.

Rosewill RHTB-11011 - 17
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - VERY sturdy (weighs 2-3x more than the 32" LED TV I was mounting on it)
- Lots of adjustability. (crammed my TV into a corner)
- Cheap ($20 on sale!)

Cons: - None of the supplied VESA screws fit my Seiki TV. Had to go to the hardware store.
- The first hinge (at the wall) is not perfectly vertical. The top is slightly further from the wall than the bottom. This caused problems when rotating about this joint. With the first arm perpendicular to the wall, the TV is level. Swing it to one side or the other, though, and it tilts the TV.
- The wall mount is impossible to align vertically during installation by itself because the sides are V-shaped and the screw holes are staggered. Had to install screw in top hole, attach arm to level the VESA plate, then (carefully) remove arm to install remaining screw(s).

Other Thoughts: Got the TV level in the end, but took far more time than it should have.

I'm pretty sure I could have hung from the end of this thing when I was finished (with only 2 screws installed, albeit into a wall stud). They must have some pretty massive (life abuse) safety factors on these things to only be rated for 32" TVs (what 32" TV with VESA mounts weighs 55lbs?)

Could probably shave some costs by reducing the weight / size of the components to better match the load / TV size rating.
