    Monitor Weight Range

    The Innovative iLift LCD Monitor Arm is available in two different models based on the weight range of your monitor. Consult the chart below to see which model will work best with your Apple monitor.

    7517-1000 Accommodates monitors weighing 8 - 27 lbs
    7517-1500 Accommodates monitors weighing 13.5 - 44 lbs

    Note: Most Apple monitors require a proprietary VESA adapter. In 2012, Apple started selling a VESA-compatible iMac with no stand and an iMac with a permanently attached stand. iMacs purchased after this point must have been purchased with the built-in VESA mount and not the permanently attached stand.

    1. Works great, looks great 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Feb 24th 2015

      I have had a total of 3 of these support arms including at work and at home for several years. They have been extremely consistent and reliable, and have not required any adjustment over time.

      Pros: stable, durable and great looking
      Cons: A little complicated for not so handy people to set up - but worth the trouble. And a bit on the expensive side.

      Response from Human Solution: Thanks for your feedback, Moses. If the setup is difficult, we're available Monday through Saturday on phones and live chat to answer questions and help you with that!

      Mounted Thunderbolt Display using this on my uplift desk. Simple to install. Totally adjustable. Love the arm but especially love the uplift desk.

    3. 7517-1500 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Jan 27th 2011

      I have had one of these arms for more than 8 years. It worked perfectly until about a few months ago, and now it needs a new hydraulic piston. I prop it up with plans to replace the piston. For a mechanism of this type that is adjusted dozens of times per day, such durability is phenomenal! I am getting ready to purchase a new Mac, but will not get rid of the old one. I look forward to purchasing another of these arms for a 27" Cinema Display. Having researched LCD arms for nearly a month now, and after checking dozens of possibilities, I still cannot find one that matches up to the quality standards of this unit. The fact that the folks at Human Solution are selling it for $120 less than Innovative Office Products (the manufacturer) is just frosting on the cake.
