Extra tall is right! There aren’t a lot of mounts this tall, and even fewer that are this simple. None that are this inexpensive. It was very easy to assemble and easy to install. If you’re using the VESA bracket, it does need to be attached to the arm. I didn’t use the bracket, so that was easy to just not install and fit my needs well. Before installing, make sure your desk top is thick enough. Mine is only 3/4” thick so I needed to add another piece of wood between the clamp and the bottom of the desk to make it thick enough to hold. But, with the piece of wood there the sturdiness is good. The weakest part of the whole assembly is my desktop itself!
There is nothing to dislike about this product assuming you purchased it for its' intended use. I purchased two, one for each side of my desk . The left side has two arms that hold my led lights and camera for my YouTube recording and I mounted my mic boom arm to the top of the main upright. Both arms on the left are two piece (one elbow) while the one on the right is three piece (two elbows) and holds my third 27"monitor. When not in use, they easily swing out of the way. The trick is to adjust the tension at each elbow to fit your desired use. Great product!
For the longest time I was wanting to mount a monitor directly above the one on my desk but didn't know how to go about it. I kept researching arms and wall mounts and all sorts of contraptions that could get the job done but they were either too expensive or wouldn't work for my cheap desk from Target. This thing saved the day. It was exactly what I needed. It mounts to the back of the deck with a clamp that is VERY sturdy. This was my biggest worry as I have a thin bar below the wood table top of my desk that I thought was going to completely ruin any arm that would mount in this way. But it hugs it like bear and I have no fear of it ever coming loose or slipping.
Instead of using for an additional monitor, I use it for my desktop station for holding up a key light to my face for my Zoom classes since my home office is quite dark. It works exactly the way it's advertised. It's reasonably priced. It's very durable (metal). It allows customization with additionally purchased arms/extensions. Speedy delivery. Can't complain at all. Well done!
