As a side note, my experience mounting the iMac to the pole-type stand was not so good (but is totally unrelated to this adapter plate). The problem is getting a mount strong enough to hold the weight of the iMac. For more information on this please see my review of Monoprice 105970 Adjustable Tilting Monitor Desk Mount Bracket Max, Black
PROS: Very solid, well-constructed, and fairly easy to install.
Tilts/operates just like the the original Apple® base.
Better price than Amazon!
Be sure to buy the heavy duty Mount 9378 gpt s 24" or above, I'm using a table mount and it's crying. I'm ordering another 9378 for this one as they work well for so many large LCDs.
PROS: Gets the job done, works as advertised, Allows me to loose the base on my 24" iMac
CONS: Not as sharp edged as my Mac. Ascetically not as attractive (but honestly who stares at the back of the Mac)
Anyway, between the problems from that and the problems of another reading of the instructions causing me to end up with the internal flange getting stuck inside my monitor (and having to fish it out with some very stiff wire and a LOT of elbow grease) I've ended up slightly damaging the internal hinge, and since the monitor stand I got wasn't quite right for my space I went back to the stock stand - which now makes a slight metal-on-metal grinding sound when I tilt the monitor.
The bracket itself didn't damage my monitor, I did, but I did as a result of trying to follow the incomplete directions. So, that's pretty frustrating.
But anyway, if you want to mount your iMac or Thunderbolt display to a VESA stand, this is perfectly fine. Just know that there's a very simple step missing from the manual - you have to use your access card to open the latch not just when removing the stock stand, but when putting the new stand into place as well.
Also, as an aside, the manual says to make sure that you tighten the screws to the VESA plate all the way when you mount the monitor. This is a great way to strip the screwholes, as I found out, as the metal is quite soft.
PROS: Does exactly what it says on the tin
CONS: Incomplete instructions make it easy to screw up also, metal is soft and it's very easy to strip the screw holes (especially when following the directions)
Recall how you removed the stand: Pull up on the stand, slip the card in to pull the latch, then push all the way down to expose the screws. This is very easy with the stand attached, because you have the leverage of the entire stand.
When you try to do the same to remove the adapter, you DO NOT have the leverage. I had to bolt the VESA bracket back onto the adapter, then bolt part of the broken monitor arm onto the bracket in order to get the leverage needed. With the adapter bolted on, it is very difficult to get the card into the slot to release the latch.
Once you install it, you should leave it locked in the "screws exposed" position, which is probably how it is meant to be installed. I didn't do that and what a PITA.
CONS: Removal is very difficult
PROS: Price compared to alternatives.
CONS: Didn't fit.
PROS: I was so happy that i found an Imac adapter plate this cheap. Unfortunately, it was too good to be true. It was cheap and looks well made
CONS: Didn't work for my 24" Imac
Thank you for your review and my apologies for the issues you have experienced with PID 9899. A shame this didn't work out for your needs.. Now if you'd like, I can help setup an RMA for a return. If you would like me to proceed with the RMA, all I would need is the order # this adapter plate is under. Sorry again for the trouble and thanks in advance!

If you have a 27" imac save yourself the trouble and buy something else.
CONS: Does not support the 27" iMac, the weight of the 27" is too much for this mount adapter, even though it is rated for 33lbs and the 27"iMac 2011 weights 30.5lbs this adapter had the monitor leaning all the way forward in an unusable position.
More importantly it is nearly impossible to get off once it is attached. I have been trying for 2 days, searched help forums and youtube to no avail.
CONS: Does not work with new 27".
