My motivation in getting the adapter was to free up desk space and get the middle of the monitor at eye level. Those two things are good benefits and made the purchase worthwhile for me.
The adapter is excellent in workmanship and style, as one would expect from Apple. I viewed instructional videos online to make sure I was installing it correctly. There is actually a trick to that.
The trick to installing this adapter is to screw in the center screw all the way, which requires more force than anticipated. The two thick side screws will not thread unless the center screw is in far enough. Other than that, the instructions were easy to follow and nothing really to think about.
I recommend this item, and anyway it's the only one that will work with iMac as far as I'm aware.
Works as described and holds tight.
Advice: The instructions say to tilt your iMac forward on the stand for removal, but I found it easier when I tilted it back, inserted the card, and then tilted it forward.
Also, you really have to have the top screw on tight to get the side screws to line up. A little tricky at first, but it's to ensure that it stays on!
The directions could have been a little clearer, but it does the job!
After I got the replacement, the adapter mounted just fine and it seems extremely well built. Check out YouTube for some helpful videos (I didn't make one, but found several that were helpful). (Tip: I'm extremely pleased with the service from the seller, J&R Music World!)
From an aesthetic and functional stand point, this is a 5-star product. However, the design, how it works and how it is installed, leaves me thinking that in the future, I'll get a Mac Mini or laptop and a non-Apple monitor. It's just too fussy to get installed.
For those two reasons I took two stars.
It does actually work
There are only three screws yet the designer saw fit to turn three screws into two different screw heads, one a torx and the other an allen. Why two and why not phillips I can't say. I can say that the engineers decided to make the screws out of aluminum so I ended up ruining one of the allen heads when I tried to tighten the screw. Being not ferrous also makes it hard to use my nice magnetic phillips driver had they been phillips headed screws.
In total it took me about 40 minutes to install. Not too bad but considering the actual mount took me less time I think it's evident you must be a patient person to install what amounts to three screws.
During install be gentle with the screws. They are hard to line up to start the threads, don't worry about the threads, it's the allen head you want to be careful of. If you have a sensitive significant other then you'll want to wait till they aren't home because you will be cursing.
Bottom line is, would I buy it again. As I know of no other solution to mount an iMac on the wall I am forced to answer yes.
