I have two 28in monitors mounted on this stand in portrait mode, bolted through my desk. It was priced well and works great. It has enough 'stick' to keep the monitors where you put them. Big improvement over the Ergotron Neoflexes I had, which sagged under the weight so the monitors had to be propped up. A previous reviewer said there was no swivel (portrait to landscape) adjustment but mine has it, it's just stiff. I don't use it; my monitors are too big to fit landscape.
Irritations The VESA mounting plates are so thin that the screws bottom in their sockets before the plate is tight to the monitor. You need to add washers, which are not included and good luck finding black. I don't know if it is just my monitors, but my previous stands had thicker plates and did not do this.
There are stops on the arms which prevent them from extending rearward, costing me two inches of desk depth. There are similar stops preventing the monitors from rotating outward more than 90 degrees, which means I can't reverse the stand and use it backwards to get the two inches either. Useless restrictions, so I ground off two of the stops.
The arm pivots on the post have beauty covers over the allen adjustment screws, except they are on the same side as the cable management clips so you can't put the cables underneath to sort of hide them without leaving the allen screws in plain sight. This is an assembly or design error.
There is no rubber pad to put between the metal foot and the desk in a bolted installation. Since moving either monitor without carefully holding the other makes the post pivot, you get scratches.
So it is a great stand, but you need to budget an extra $0.99, a trip to the hardware store for materials, and twenty unnecessary minutes for installation to fix things they could have corrected for free.
