Pros: Pros: I bought this for my Cintiq 21UX so I could move it around when/where I needed it. I have wrist problems (ganglion cyst in my drawing wrist) so a lot of strain can cause pain over time. Someone at my office has one with the extension arm on his 22HD and he loved it, so I decided to try one for myself. As soon as I opened the box I could tell it was sturdy and heavy, which was reassuring to support a 20lb $1500 monitor. The instructions are a bit unclear at some points, with very few words and mostly pictures (brings me back to putting together Ikea furniture...) but after a few hours I got it hooked onto the back of my desk, mounted it to the VESA on the Cintiq after some trial and error and got it all put together. However, I noticed sagging, it wouldn't stay up in the air. After a while I found the tension screw and tightened it quite a bit, and that fixed the problem, so it can support a 20lb monitor up in the air with no problems that I can tell so far. I can easily move it out of the way when I play a game, or bring it right into my lap when I want to draw, it's pretty amazing. I have the FREDDE desk from IKEA, so if anyone is curious, it does fit onto that desk with no problems (other than cheap desk construction, the area that it's attached to can get a bit wobbly from the weight when I move it, so just be cautious and make sure the desk is secured well). Will update after a while to see if my opinion changes, overall seems like a well made and sturdy product.
Cons: only cons i can think of are unclear instructions, and there are two sets of screws for the same VESA holes, so not sure why two sets of the same size screws were provided, preference I guess? no idea.
