I was relieved to find this product and the price made me so excited. I bought a TV without a stand and did not want to mount it. I also did not want to pay for a new stand with the mounting brackets. We lucked up on a good deal for the TV and went for it but we weren't ready to purchase a new living room set. I searched the internet for a universal stand and they were mostly wall mounts and expensive anyway. I was about to give up when I found this one. That was it. End of search! It was not the best looking but does the job well. Looks good wirth my TV, easy to put together. Very well balanced. Only problem was when my husband put opposite sides on for the legs. It tilted forward and took some confusing investigation to figure it out, but perfect once we did.
After looking at wall mounts at the local electronic store ($100) I was a bit weary of a mount for $$$. I read the reviews on this site and said "what the heck, lets give it a try?" The mount is solid, moves great and was much easier to install than I imagined (I did have an extra set of hands). I mounted a 32" Samsung on my bedroom wall. The furthest pivot point is a bit tight, you will want to loosen for full range of motion. I couldnt ask for more. If you need a wall mount, dont lokl any futher, this is it!!!
This desk mount arm is very sturdy and is well made. I recommend it to anyone wanting more desk space and a lot of flexibility in monitor positioning. I am using one with a 24 inch Dell LCD and the other with a 20 inch Dell LCD. Both are working great, are stable, and allow for a large range of positions and viewing angles. My only desire is to have a taller mounting pole included with the arm. I have the arm at its highest settings, and although it is fairly in the correct viewing height, I will still be placing an extra small piece of wood between the desk and mounting bracket to make it taller. I contacted Ergotron sales directly to inquire about purchasing their taller mounting pole separately, but have yet to hear back after 1 month.
We actually bought two of these mounts considering the price. Others we found that supported a 32-37 inch tv were over $100. The mount installed easily (finding the center of the stud is paramount). The brackets come tightened all the way so you may want to loosen just a bit for ease of motion. The tv tilts down slightly, but when hung abouve 4 feet, it's perfect. My husband removed the base to attach it to the wall first, then put it back together, then hung the tv. Installation was much easier this way. He actually installed ours and our sons by himself. We thought we would need two sets of hands, but turns out by removing the part that attaches to the wall, it was possible for one person to install. The full range motion is perfect. It's sturdy, it's well made, and we can put the tv in almost any position. Great buy!! We're very pleased. : )
