Simple and solid
Pros: Relatively lightweight considering how strongly built. Simple design. Wallplate mounts solidly on wall stud with two large screws, supplied. Monitor plate attaches to monitor with a variety of screws, supplied, hooks onto wallplate and lifts off easily. Tilts up and down, locks position with 4 bolts that are combo 10mm hex/#3 Phillips drive. More than enough for a lightweight monitor.
Cons: Limited uptilt.
Overall Review: OSHA recommended height is with top of screen at eye level or slightly below, so remember that uptilt is limited.
Won't fit ASUS 24" monitor
Pros: Beautifully built, solid.
Cons: Three stars for recommending this as a bundle with the ASUS VS248H-P 24" Widescreen monitor, despite several prior reviews saying it wouldn't work. Wish I'd read them. It's a 200 X 200mm mount, and the ASUS has a 100mm mounting pattern, with power and video sockets placed so the mount covers the plug holes.
Overall Review: If you really need this, buy it and take a hacksaw to the bottom 50mm. It's a beauty. I returned mine and actually came out a bit ahead, even paying shipping back to Newegg. The replacement (Rosewill RHMS-11004) had a lower price plus a promo code, and I received it before I got this one shipped back. Newegg really does rock.
Mount it on the wall
Pros: This is a very nice item, and I agree with all the other delighted users.
Cons: I bought it as a bundle with the Rosewill RMS-MA3210 Silver 17”-32” Tilt/Swivel Wall Mount. However, I would have had to hacksaw off the bottom 2" of steel to get access to the monitor plugs. No problems with an RMA on the mount; the monitor is a keeper.
Overall Review: The Rosewill RHMS-11004 wallmount works nicely for me, and I now have an extra square foot of deskspace!
Big, quiet, efficient
Pros: Almost inaudible, moves lots of air, low power consumption, clear graceful plastic design looks sort of artistic.
Cons: Perforated metal guard defeats the purpose of moving air, but unguarded blades are sharp enough to hurt.
Overall Review: I put this thing in the ceiling over some fairly warm servers. Cut a hole in the ceiling tile and let it blow into the dropped ceiling space. It cut the excess temperature in half. The blades are safely out of the way up there.
Great little device
Pros: Handsfree driving, beautiful clear sound through FM radio, easy solid Bluetooth connection to my Motorola phone
Cons: Remember to turn unit off before leaving car, or your phone won't work. Can hang phone in "Please Wait" status, requiring you to turn off phone and reboot.
Overall Review: Practice helps. Unit announces FM channel it wants to use, then you must tune to that frequency; if the channel gets noisy you can bump the button on the back for a new one -- but you will lose sound for several seconds, and you should tell your caller before doing it. That part is not handsfree. Also, sound the caller hears is much improved if I hold the unit and speak into it like a microphone.
I like it
Pros: I bought this for an ECS Goal-3+ MoBo-CPU combo, and it seems to work fine. The motherboard came with a backplate already in place under the CPU; I discarded the one that comes with the fan -- and that's half the work of installation.
Cons: Yes the rotating arm seems like it's going to break, no it doesn't. But do try to be gentle.
Overall Review: I find it hard to believe the reviewer comments about short life -- it seems very solidly made to me.
