A very useful, necessary item if you plan on mounting the 24" iMac. DONT KID AROUND WITH THE TORX SCREWS, they are soft, torqued down in the factory and easily stripped! Get a good driver with alot of leverage before attempting to turn these crews, under no circumstances use the tool in the kit.
I had to drill one out and I thought I was being careful. Why they didn't send a new set of screws with this kit is unexplainable. That being said, once on, it makes mounting a cinch.
The VESA mount looks great and works as advertised, but it is extreamly difficult to mount. It took me a good half an hour of fiddling with the screws before I got them to catch on both sides. A little more tolorance in the design would be a great benefit.
Using the 'date of birth' of your ACD is a lousy way to determine the correct mount.
This $29 unit = 5 7/8" wide / while my ACD desktop stand's mount = 3 5/8" wide.
I could have easily detemined this was the wrong mount to bein with; saving me & APPLE the hassle.
N O W I'm ordering the $39 version (though there's NO width listed for that model either) in the hope that it will be the correct, smaller fitting my ACD requires - though (illogically) costing $10 MORE
