24" Widescreen LCD, Near the Limit,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Neo-Flex LCD Arm (Office Product)
Pros: High Quality Fit & Finish, Swivels 180º Effortlessly, Low price considering overall package.
Cons: Would have liked a better/cleaner cable management solution.
When I first removed the assembled arm from the box, my first impression was wow this is heavy and very well made. The more I've used it that impression is only reinforced.
I have this mounted on the corner of a coffee table, it then swings the monitor in a 90º, 135º or 180º arc depending on where I have my recliner positioned. I swing it back to its 0º rest position each time I get out of the chair or when not used. I have a 22" Acer widescreen on the arm which I selected to be under the maximum permitted weight. In order to clamp on the coffee table, I had to drill two holes in the bottom L-bracket and flip it over. This increased the clamp opening to ~3", now very secure.
I have both a VGA and DVI cable, plus power and audio running through the two cable clips. Works but a bit unsightly. I'd like to see a more enclosed cable solution.
As others have stated, the screws are TIGHT. I couldn't rotate the monitor around the VESA bracket w/o first loosening the nut. Since this nut is hidden behind the VESA mount, important to get it right.
Edit: (April 2008) Removed the 22" LCD and put on a 24" KDS LCD. The KDS at 16 lbs is near the arm's limit of 18#. Still works well, just wouldn't want to go any heavier.
Edit: (Dec. 2009) After rotating the arm 180º several dozen times a day for 2-years it got so it would barely move. I downloaded the PDF from the Ergotron website, then disassembled the pivot, bone dry. I cleaned the steel pin and aluminum socket, applied stem grease and viola, like new again.

Could you explain a little better how you were able to extend the clamp opening to about 3"?
Thank you for the tip!
