5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, even if it is last years model, July 18, 2007
This review is from: Neo-Flex LCD Arm (Office Product)
I absolutely love this LCD arm. When I was looking for a new LCD monitor, I was shocked to find that most of the LCDs on the market today do not have the ability to rotate to portrait mode. That feature is really only found on the Dell ultrasharp LCDs, which cost much more than most LCDs on the market today.

After doing some research, I came across the Ergotron website and found the "new" model of this arm for double the cost of the one listed above. The model listed above is last years model, but the only real difference is the style/looks. I still say this arm is very stylish.

In the box, you will find all the parts needed to mount the arm a variety of ways. The most common way is to clap it to the rear of your worksurface, but a grommet is also included so that you could drill a hole through your surface and clamp it to the hole.

The arm is very strong (the manufacturer says it can hold up to a 20", but I am using a 22" samsung 226BW widescreen LCD with no problems). The arm can be lowered or raised 6-8" (maybe more), and the LCD can be tilted up/down, and rotated. All this can be done without having to move any cables.

If you are looking for a great way to easily turn your LCD from landscape to portrait mode, this is a great choice. It makes reading documents (PDFs, websites, etc) much easier (especially if you have a widescreen LCD).

While I was looking at this product, as it being a thing that I might soon buy, so as to mount a second monitor on my desk, then I noticed this review. Specifically, then, I noticed the comment about flat-panel displays that can rotate into portrait mode. I wanted to mention, in the market interest: The HP w2408h can rotate into portrait mode, itself, and the support software included with the monitor will automatically update the display, once it's rotated. It's not a terribly pricey monitor. I expect that these features would be available on some HP monitors of other sizes, as well.

(Granted, I'm not sure how the HP software features would be affected, once the monitor would be mounted to a third-party mount, but I'm sure that HP has taken the likelihood of such a configuration well into consideration, in designing that software.)

Keep in mind that the one that's double the price is significantly longer - according to http://www.ergodirect.com/product_info.php?products_id=16106 it's about four more inches. That's significant (it's harder to put weight on a longer arm), and I needed that distance.
