Arrived on time, was slightly wary as it was so cheap and some reviews had said there was a droop in the product when trying to hold a monitor in position. I'll come back to this.
Arrived well packaged and well organised with clear instructions including both pictorial and written instruction. Tools are included with the exception of a phillips screwdriver of which you'll need two sizes - large and small. Both should be without the star wings, just '+' plan phillips.
Comes with a selection of bolts though you would need to purchase some separately, for example I needed M8 (8mm) bolts for my samsung TV. When assembled and in place with the hand-fastened desk clamp there is ample adjustment. The listed dimensions are correct and there is room for purchasing different sized posts if you need it higher than normal / whatever.
I managed to mount my 32" monitor (despite this being outside the recommended size) but I required a 200x200 VESA head mount plate adaptor (available on amazon for under a tenner). You put the plate on the mount and then place the TV on the plate. Works great.
Sure, it drooped but you can reveal a nut that you fasten to adjust the strength of the tilt clamp. It is a friction device, and it may have been better to have had a better means of adjustment but it works. Absolutely rock steady. No shake or rattle, and I can adjust the view as I wish. I tilt it down 15deg normally, but sometimes use the monitor to watch movies from the couch so I can now just pull the monitor out and adjust the tilt instead of having to drag the whole monitor and stand out.
There is a cable tidy system which I don't use simply because of my setup position but am sure they would function just fine.
Recommended on all counts. Especially the price! See pic for a freshly installed example!
