    Good quality

    Lightweight, but good build quality. Arms are easily adjusted to get perfect height/angle. Expensive, but I'm happy with them.

    I very happy with everything about this except I wish it went higher. You'll have to be sure it will go high enough for you or work out some way to mount it higher. This is the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. After using it for a month I feel like it's a high-quality well-designed device and looks like it will last a long time. I love that.

    One warning: if you buy direct from manufacturer you will have to wait a week or two before they actually ship it. It does say this on the website, but I didn't see it before I ordered.

    M2 monitor arm is working great!

    Posted by Jordyn on Aug 12th 2009

    I saw that this arm won the NeoCon award for best monitor arm so I went ahead and bought it based on that. I'm happy to say that this beautiful monitor arm holds my LCD monitor exactly where I effortlessly move it to. It is so much easier to adjust than my last arm. My desk is now more usable as I can get my monitor in the optimal position or push it out of the way when not needed.
