Like many reviewers, I found this stand to be perfect except for one thing: the height of the post. The post was too short to accommodate my standing desk, placing the monitor too low for good ergonomics. Ergotron offers a long-pole version of this stand, but for significantly more money.I decided to buy the VIVO stand (which comes with a taller pole, but a non-articulating arm) and the pole diameters are the same height! I'm now using the base and post from the VIVO combined with the collar and arms from the AmazonBasics stand to meet my needs. Hope this helps!
