        Comments about Details FYI Monitor Arm:

        The design is simple and flawed, ultimately limiting the adjustability of the arm. If you're walking on the treadmill and taller than 5'10", you cannot raise your monitor high enough! There are much better monitor arms out there, but I bought this one thinking it would be high-quality like the Walkstation, and perfectly suited for it--sadly, it's not.

          Comments about Details FYI Monitor Arm:

          Monitor arm itself is very stable, but with positioning at edge - it greatly increases the torque on the back edge of the desk, which makes the desk feel more unstable (tippy).

            Comments about Details FYI Monitor Arm:

            I work in a call center and this arm is by far the best adjustable arm I have found and the price is not very high. Adjustable to anywhere as far as the monitor arm can reach. Sitting in front of the table all day makes my body move around the desk a lot, and the monitor follows.

            • Q:

              It appears like the through mount option is shown in the pictures. For installation, does the clamp mounting option require drilling holes through the desk surface?

                A:

                You have the option to secure it with a through-mount or a C-clamp. The C-clamp does not require drilling through the surface. It is recommended to use the clamp with standard edge surfaces, as a P-edge or knife-edge surface will not allow for a flush application of the clamp.

                A:

                The FYI Arm is very adjustable, but the answer depends on where the VESA plate is. From the worksurface to the middle of the VESA plate is 18½”. There is a 360° arm rotation, and an 11.5" vertical adjustment. We do not think you will have a problem with the wide range of adjustability.

            • Q:

              Specifications state this arm can hold up to 20lbs. I realize that monitors can different depths, and I am wondering what is the depth at which this arm experiences diminished capacity? I have a 23" monitor that has a depth of 2.6" and weighs 12.6lbs, can this arm function properly with my monitor?

                A:

                As long as your monitor is well within the weight limit, you should experience no diminished capacity. Your 2.6" depth should cause no trouble either. The bracket keeps the monitor very tight and level.
