Slight Problem with the Monoprice Monitor Arms...

 

I usually really like to reccomend Monoprice.com. They have great prices on cables. I've purchased alot from them in the past. But something I'm not in love with is their Desk Claimp Monitor Arms. (Monprice title: 3 Way Adjustable Tilting Desk Mount Bracket for LCD LED )

 

 

 

In the Past I've purchased Ergotron Monitor Arms, but that can be pricey. So I wanted to try something a little cheaper. And while these Arms aren't the worst I've seen, they have a lot of flaws... First off... They don't work with my desk. An Ikea Galant Series Table. Similar to this one.

The problem (which hopefully you can see in the below pic) is that the clamp doesn't compress far enough to grip the table, This can be fixed with a longer bolt, but that requires some dissabemply of the clamp.

 

 

Also I didn't like how the tilt on the VESA mount would loosen if I ever adjusted the monitor, then I would have to go behind the monitor have to retighten it.

 

All and all, I rate this as: Don't Buy.
