    "so as advertised, the stands work great and everything moves with a light touch instead of a forceful hand. that said, that can also be a bad thing, as i found out, since the tilt went all the way down just from the weight of my monitor. it took a bit of tightening handiwork to solve but it's an otherwise great monitor arm for multitaskers like myself!"

    "i switched to this from an ergotron and found while it wasn't the most extravagant arm, it did its job surprisingly as well as an ergotron. a few missing features just leave it at a 4.5 though."

    "this monitor arm works wonders for me! i can set it to the proper height for all the tasks i do for work. my only gripe is that the pole of the mount could be a bit longer, which is something i had to adjust to when i first got it."

    "this stand works as intended but initial adjustments are required. the arms (not the mounts) sag even if my monitors are well under the weight limit for each arm, and the vertical alignment is a bit limited. other than that, a pretty decent arm."

    "the parts are well made and sturdy, and the cable tubes are very handy. that said, it is annoying and sometimes a hindrance that the monitors cannot be at equal heights due to how the stand is designed. it's a bit disorienting, which is why i gave it a 4."

    "despite how the stand is designed, the two arms are never even in height. i've tried adjusting both my screens in numerous ways and still can't solve the problem. that said, even with the design flaw, it holds up pretty well and does free up some space on my desk."
