Long Arm for Allcam MDM04, MDM05 and MDM06
on 24 May 2014
Bought only a single arm for Allcam MDM05 (dual 24" monitor setup) as I thought this to be a direct replacement for the shorter arm. To my disappointment I found out that this arm does NOT replace the short arm part of the Allcam MDM05, but must be inserted between the existing short and the long arm with some detrimental effect.
1 - Not what I thought it was: This long arm is NOT a replacement for the short arm part (the monitor bracket part will NOT fit directly into this arm).
2 - Not really fitting: The part with the thread is not quite long enough for a correct installation with all components (1x large washer, 1x small washer and 1x spring washer). At least the large washer need to be removed, which in turn may cause damage to the lackered surface between the two arms during final installation (hence only 3 stars, it can be used somewhat, but I think it is not ideal).
3 - Visual impact (if it matters): If used with MDM05 (Dual monitor setup), you will need two (2) of these arms, in order to keep both monitors aligned at the same height. The difference in height is about 38mm if only one arm is used.
