The weight of my fully decked out BTO iMac was not an issue since after removing the aluminum stand the computer weighed in at 29 pounds. I did have to increase both tension settings of the arm. The installation took about an hour even with the three mistakes I made.

It isn't a poorly designed arm, but it is a design that caters to larger-sized desks. I give it three stars because it lacks in universality—some minor design tweaks could probably fix this. The dimension you should pay close attention to is the depth of your table-top. The arm's hinge allows it to be pulled outward or folded inward; the problem is the folding-in part. It's span (when folded/collapsed) is quite large. It is possible to circumvent this problem by swiveling the arm off to one side, and then twisting the screen so that it points back at you; but this is an awkward look and feel, and it puts a lot of stress on the clamping device that mounts the arm to the desk. All in all, this LCD Arm is built well, but it is built for those who can accommodate it.

This thing is built to last and nothing about it is flimsy or low-quality. It will handles my 26" monitor like a champ. The tension adjustments are well designed and, when adjusted properly, compensate for any monitor weight. Smooth, fluid movement. If I had to cite any cons, I would say the cable management isn't that elegant and you might have to make a trip to the hardware store for some nuts and bolts if your monitor's VESA mount didn't come with them.

The tension needs to be adjust to almost the highest setting, but it does hold steady, and it gives you a wide range of positions you can place the display in. As other reviewers have noted, you will probably need a larger desk to really take advantage of it.

    Cons: The one odd thing I noticed about it is that, even fully extended upwards, it is still almost half an in shorter than the stand that comes with the display itself. I had hoped to use it for a standing workstation, but I think it is going to be too short for that.

However, it does not hold up a 27" Cinema Display. The armature holds it up fine, but the spring-tensioned elbow will not stay in position and instead rotates down until the display is at center gravity...or else it's resting on my desk (in the case of portrait mode)! And I did crank the spring tension adjustment as tight as it will go.

Bought the MX for my 28" Hanns G monitor (due to weight co I bought an Ergotron LX for my 22" Cintiq and love everything about it. Bought the MX for my 28" Hanns G monitor (due to weight concerns) and while it holds it in place it has limited flexibility, as the base only swivels 180º not the 360º (like the LX.) As another reviewer stated, this really is best for those with deep desks, but I do enjoy the extra space 4" under the monitor. May not be much but it's great for the stapler, calculator and other misc desk items that always seem to be in your way.
