BARELY Compatible with 27" Monitors w/ Convex Backs
Reviewed in the United States on June 1, 2020
I purchased this adapter to mount my Dell SE2717HR (2017 model 27" monitor), which obviously is not by default VESA mountable. As you can probably infer by the fact that it is a 2017 model, the monitor is not that bulky, nor is it that deep of a unit. However, like many monitors, it does have a slightly convex back, meaning it has a bit of a "hump" on the back side. This proved to be a huge problem for the design of this bracket adapter.
As designed, this bracket adapter CANNOT fit a 27" monitor that has a convex back. No, the monitor is not curved. No, the monitor is not larger than the suggested size. It is simply related to the flat, metal design of the brackets. We had to forcibly bend them (and in turn bend the VESA mount of my dual monitor stand) to fit these brackets successfully and securely around my monitor. We're lucky the brackets didn't snap during the process. Everything is secure and functioning...for now.
At the end of the day, was I better off spending $20 on this than $150-300 on a new monitor? Probably, yes. Was it a heck of a lot of work just to save money on an uglier, jankier solution? Also yes.
