Disappointment for $31
Reviewed in the United States on January 21, 2019
First off, I can't stress enough how cheaply made this product is. Everything from the screws, to the hollow support pole. Total crap.
The base isn't heavy enough to hold one monitor up while you try to install the other, so I tried to lay the monitors down, but that's even worse. I ended up letting the base tilt with the monitor against the wall while I installed it. Once I installed it, the base immediately tilted forward and I had to catch my monitors before they fell. I figured I had them too high up (about 25% of the pole at the top) so I put it in the middle of the pole, and still fell forward.
I put it slightly lower, and pushed the monitors backwards towards the pole until it didn't feel like it was going to fall forward. Unfortunately in order to have that, it creates a gap about 2.5 inches to 3 inches in the middle, enough to see the pole in the middle between the two monitors. Why would I buy a stand and have a gap in the middle? I could do that with the stands the monitors come with. I thought my monitors may be too heavy, but I looked it up and the weight totaled to around 11 pounds, half of what the stand allows.
This stand would probably be fine if I could drill a hole into my desk, but I can't, I have a glass desk. I don't expect to get a refund for this crap, and if they ask me to send it back to be eligible for a refund, then I'd rather throw it in the garbage.
- Top heavy, doesn't support the weight of the monitors AT ALL
- Cheaply made
- Hollow inside the pole, which takes a majority of the down pressure
- Light weight base
- Arm endings for the monitor slightly bend
- Doesn't feel like your monitors are safe on this
If you're reading this avoid this product unless you have extremely light weight monitors, but even then, I doubt it will work.
