Fine, but not great, and I've been spoiled by the M8

I have both a Humanscale M2 and an M8, and maybe I'd have different feelings if I didn't also own the M8. But by comparison, the M2 just doesn't cut it. I have both on my desk, with similar monitors (20" panels) in each, and the M8 is rock solid. The only time you ever need to touch the monitor is when you want to move it. But unfortunately with the M2, there's a fair amount of sag and drift. Over time, the monitor tends to move slowly out of position, unless the adjustments are tightened up to the point where it's hard to move.

Overall, it's not a bad product, but I wish I'd held off and waited for another reconditioned M8 arm instead.

Works very well

Moves easily and doesn't sag over time. I'm using with a 19" Dell monitor. Have had for about 6 months and everything is still working as it should. I will never have a monitor sitting on my desk again.

Big improvement in workspace!

This item is pricey, but it improves my desk space and comfort tremendously. I now have so much more room on my desk. It is of good quality, flexible as needed, and very sturdy.

Solid, well made arm. Adjustable over a wide

Solid, well made arm. Adjustable over a wide range. I have an ASUS 27" monitor attached and the M2 handles it with no problem.
