This is a great option for clearing some space on your desk and positioning you monitor just so. Feels solid and the base and main beam are beefy and your desk will probably break before the stand does. The only downside is that the screw plate will not fit some monitors that have their screw holes inset into the monitor body. Those will need some kind of spacers and longer screws in order to work properly, so check first. Some other OSD products do not appear to suffer from this issue. But for a majority of monitors, you will be hunky dory happy with this great device!
