Decent stand, but lacks features
on December 29, 2010
This stand is very well built and heavy duty. It can hold up to two 24" monitors. Unfortunately, if you are mounting monitors less than 24" and you want to bring the inside edges of the monitors together, you have to pull both monitors in and forward (towards the viewer). This ends up taking considerable desk space. The actual mounts on the horizontal arms can not be slid left and right on the arms to bring the monitors together. Rather, both arms must be brought in and forward towards the viewer to bring the monitors together. (Again, this not only brings the monitors too close to you, but it wastes desk space, which goes against that which the stand is trying to accomplish. Additionally, the actual base plate (which sits on the surface of your desk, is VERY large (one foot long) and extends forward on your desk by at least a foot; taking up more desk space. I might note though, that if your desktop has a hole in it for wiring to go through, this stand can be mounted on top of that hole without using the large plate that comes with it. (thus saving room). But, if you don't have a hole in the top of your desk, then you must use the base plate which takes up more space than the stand[s] that come with the monitors do. Personally, I would recommend purchasing a dual stand which allows the user to slide the monitors left and right on the horizontal rails, which in turn alleviates the need to bring the monitors forward in order to bring them together.
