Looks good, works well, but...Apr 19, 2011
By W. B. Halper
I have both this arm and it's big brother, the 3M 3M Desk Mount Easy-Adjust Monitor Arm (MA200MB). There's a substantial difference between the two:
(sorry about the formatting...Amazon removes the spaces that are needed to keep things pretty)
Model: MA100MB; MA200MB
Back of monitor to arm pivot: 11"; 14"
Center of post to arm pivot: 7-1/4"; 9-1/4"
Post height from desk top: 7-1/2"; 13"
Mounting point of arm on post: Fixed; Adjustable with a hex wrench
Up-down movement of monitor: Fixed Steps; Smoothly Adjustable
Max Monitor Weight: 18 lbs; 20 lbs
Monitor Mounting: Both have 75mm square hole pattern with 100mm adapter plate.
Desk mounting: Both have interchangable clamp and through-hole mounting plates
Post design: Sleek and Tapered; Round Post that looks like a pipe
In appearance, I really prefer the smaller MA100MB. The MA200MB is industrial looking and is something I'd expect to see in a commercial setting. The MA100MB looks much better and would be much more appropriate in a home office.
Why then only three stars? Simple...I've found it impossible to keep the screws tightened in the MA100MB as I move the arm around. There is a long screw that act as the pivot in the middle of the arm. Another screw (actually they're bolts) holds the monitor mounting plate assemble to the arm. Both loosen as I move the arm around and/or adjust the angle of the monitor. Admittedly, most people will find a good position for the monitor and will rarely move it, but I find myself, hex wrench in-hand, tightening it down much more than I'd like.

Great flexibility and easy of use! This is a winner!May 18, 2009
By G. Naylor
I wanted to free up some space on my desk top as well as the ability to rotate my monitor. I decided to try the 3M mount. Wow, was I surprised at what I got. Very easy to install. It went up in a few short minutes. Very easy to use. I was immediately able to move my monitor in all 3 dimensions. It is a little stiff at first but that keeps it in place as it floats the monitor in space over your desk. 90 degree rotation was no problem. It's a snap to rotate it to scan through long web pages. This is a big advantage of a widescreen monitor IF you can rotate it 90 degrees. I was so happy with my purchase I bought a second one for my other computer. This thing just flat out works exactly as it should. It is pricy but worth it!

Apparently this one isn't quite expensive enough...Sep 12, 2010
By Dr. Lo
There are a couple of "features" on this model that I found very frustrating. It's all in the pivoting joints which provide the forward/backward and left/right tilt adjustments. (You can't see them in any of the pictures here.) The left/ right swivel is mounted rigidly to the arm, which can be set to several different angles to provide an overall height adjustment. The forward/back pivot is then mounted rigidly to the first one at a right angle. The problem: If you set the arm to one of the higher height settings (as I needed), the pivot angles get way out of whack, and are no longer positioned anywhere close to the proper vertical & horizontal axes required for easy adjustment. What this means is that you can't just tilt the monitor directly forward/backward or left/right - you have to go diagonally one way, then another, then cuss a little, then try again... Added to this is the fact that the pivots are nearly impossible to adjust to the proper amount of friction - they're always either too tight or too loose. It might be livable if you just wanted to wrestle it into one position and leave it there forever, but of course that kinda defeats the purpose of buying one of these things. I wound up exchanging mine for an Ergotron LX, which was even more expensive (around $130). In the end I was a bit surprised at how much I had to spend just to get a useable product in this category, but the Ergotron does work extremely well. For another 30 bucks, it makes this one look like a toy.

A good sturdy monitor standOct 13, 2009
By C. Rodriguez
This stand is holding up a Dell 2408WFP which in terms of weight supposedly should not be supported properly. I have some troubles lifting the arm up or down(although once set in position it is golden) due to my monitor being overweight but the tilt, swivel and other functionality works 100% without any hitches. In order to life the arm up and down though I need to apply a force upwards on it before it will let me even push the sides in allowing me to lift up or push down which can be a bit of work alone.
Still for being an overweight it still works surprisingly well, and I would assume even better if your monitor is closer within the specs of this arm. I would suggest you create your own wire management if your using many monitor inputs since the wire management built into the arm is pretty weak easily popping out with a few too many cables.
This monitor arm was able to fix two problems with my factory default stand, better options for adjusting the monitor to the perfect tilt, distance and height. Also the 2408WFP standard stand comes with a defect that slightly slants the monitor in one direction which for some is fine but my head wanted to adjust to it putting stress on my neck and shoulders.
I just picked up the stand hoping it would work and it did. If your within spec of this than you will be golden otherwise if you want to save a little money with a heavier screen you should be ok with this (24 inch or less) but might want to consider getting one designed for its weight just for safety and ease of adjusting height.

Heavy Duty Flex Arm and Ergonomic!Mar 27, 2011
By Martin A Hogan
"Marty From SF"
Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/RNDDQXB9U503S This 3M Monitor Arm took me 15 minutes to install. I have a wide corner desk and I had my monitor far up front to see. With the Monitor Arm I was able to move it forward, up, back, down, rotate, etc. with ease, as shown in the video. It is completely flexible for any workstation. The kit includes an extra mount so it will fit any monitor and it also has an extra desk mount as well for non-cornered desks. Like it says above in the description, there is an 8-inch range at six different fixed segments to fit any work station. The best part is that it leaves all this extra room underneath the monitor so I can place other objects, like my answering machine, paperwork or anything else. The construction is heavy steel and it is obviously durable. There is a circular button that when pressed allows you to manipulate one level of height. I did not find the white wire clasps to be very effective, so I simply draped the wires around the arm. This is one sturdy highly adjustable monitor arm. Perfect ergonomics!
Caution! Use only the hand-held tools supplied. Do not attempt to use electronic screwdrivers or overtighten screws.
