      0:16 no? 0:20 Uuuh also no? I've never seen this as an issue. Screens are made to not put the viewers eyes in the "dim" spots.

      Flimsy? Yes. Not rotatable for portrait mode? Yes. Not flexible enough to spin it around to move around your bigass desk easily if you do have and use and need a bigass desk. The stand is a scam above all others though. Just like all of those GAMING chairs

                                      The apple mount costs 1000 bucks because idiots will pay it. And I'm sure their warranties expire if you use a non apple mount.

Been using it for about 6 months now and had no problem holding up both of my 24 inch monitors. Good option for people with desks against the wall and don't wanna drill holes anywhere.
