LCD monitor arms are great- that can’t be refuted. There are a lot of them on the market and each is very different from the others. With the M7 Humanscale has thrown their hat in the ring and it is apparent that they have put a lot of R&D into this product.
When it comes down to it the M7 is pretty much the best looking monitor arm available. It is a very functional piece that just happens to be one of the most aesthetically appealing pieces of computer hardware I have ever seen. In our testing it proved itself to be very stable, easily adjustable, and a breeze to install.
Considering all this the price is not too bad- a lot of people are going to take issue with it, but considering this product has an industry-leading lifetime warranty (ten year warranty on gas strut) you know that the M7 is an investment, not jut a casual purchase. With the industry permanently moving towards LCDs you should be able to expect a very long life from this monitor arm.
