Does a great job at moving the monitor as back as possible on desk to create more space. Was concerned while purchasing as some reviews mentioned that monitor doesn't stay in it place and tilts. Maybe those were isolated incidents or related to assembling. I have a 34" Dell monitor mounted on this stand and have had no issues in the 3 weeks I've used it. Gives a very good minimalistic look. Stand is heavy and while assembling the quality speaks for itself. Really happy with the purchase.
