Just as great, I now cannot see a single cable - I hate cables, and that makes me happy. The finish on the post matches all my Apple gear, and the actual arms are over-engineered, rock solid, and easy to adjust.

    I have a few criticisms, though. The black plastic cap is ugly (fortunately, it's hidden behind my cinema display). It requires you to drill holes in your desk (no clamp-mount option). Finally, although it includes self-adhesive felt pads designed to protect your lap top from the 4 brackets that hold it in place, it has no felt pads for the four steel bolts that hold those brackets in place. If you don't apply something to protect your computer, they will scratch the heck out of it.

    With the beautiful integrated stand on the iMacs and Apple Cinema displays, you really won't save a whole lot of desk space -- but for MacBook users with monitors by other manufacturers this setup helps a lot. Plus a room full of them looks really good.

    Only issue: you need to drill 5 holes through the top of your desk. Not a problem for us -- these should last as long as the desks they're mounted to. We're pretty sure we'll keep using them no matter what new machines/monitors we'll buy in the coming years.

    I have owned this for about two weeks and it is extremely well build, solid materials and construction. I have it set up with a Th I have owned this for about two weeks and it is extremely well build, solid materials and construction. I have it set up with a Thunderbolt Display 27" and an iMac 27" and have had zero problems, supports the weight and the arms are easy to rotate. The only complaint I have is that you can really only position the displays on the x axis and have to unlock the arms to move them on the y axis w/ only about two inches of adjustment at each level. This makes it impossible for me to align the bottom of the display area on both screens its about an 1.5in off. This is a very slight complaint but one that should be made because the Ergotron desk mounts do not have this problem.

    Another thing to consider is cable management, which is amazing unless you forget to connect all your cables when putting it together. For me it is impossible to remove the cable ties when in place, not sure why but I am almost at the point of ripping them out but do not want to damage them. I would recommend that If you do purchase this plan on routing all your cables before you use the cable clamps because they are hard to remove, I had to zip tie additional ones in the back.

    Other then that it is nice being able to rotate my monitors in my room for watching a movie in the bed, or on the other side of the room on the sofa. Saves me from having to buy another TV.

When I received the product I was asto When I ordered my new late 2012 27" IMac, this mount seemed like a good deal for the price. When I received the product I was astounded by how poorly it was packaged. I understand that this is not an apple product; however, since every other Item I have ever received from apple has been beautifully packaged, I was expecting a certain level of constancy. Upon opening the shipping box I discovered that the mount was just sitting on the bottom under one piece of styrofoam. One of the bags of screws had been torn, and small parts were strewn all over the place. Ignoring the minor inconvenience of the poor packaging, I decided to set the mount up; however, I quickly discovered that the mounting screws were too short to go through my desk
    (and I don't have a particularly thick desk) this required me to get out my router and create a cavity for the mount to fit in. All hassle aside, this is an excellent product, If only it were easier to set up, and properly packaged.

    No. You have to use three different allen wrenches. For the height, where it connects to the post, y No. You have to use three different allen wrenches. For the height, where it connects to the post, you need one size (included). For the pivot on the Y (up/down, like a nodding head) axis, you will need another, of a different size (also included). For the rotation (as if you were rotating your display to see a tall document), you need a third allen wrench size (oddly, not included).

    I noted in the reviews that many are unaware there is a 'clamp' accessory (available separately) tha I noted in the reviews that many are unaware there is a 'clamp' accessory (available separately) that makes drilling unnecessary.

    That said – I would not clamp directly to glass – you'd need to 1) achieve the required thickness for the clamp, 2) protect the glass as well as 3) distribute the weight/stress over a large-enough area.

    I think item 3 would make any shims unwieldy/ugly, so for all intents and purposes: I'd strongly advise AGAINST trying this.

    I'm answering in the hopes of saving a few shattered glass desks/iMacs/monitors. 'Caveat Clamper.'

    (1) a standard version with a desktop stand
    (2) a special version with built-in VESA mount adapter

    In order to mount the current iMac using the MobilePro mounts (or any other VESA mount), you MUST order the version with the built-in VESA mount adapter, as the standard iMac cannot be converted.

    The Mac/iPad platform works with any of Apple's laptops, including the 11" MacBook Air.
