Questions and Answers
Standard monitors (not for intense gaming) are getting super cheap, and the USB-VGA/DVI/HDMI adapters are inexpensive (monoprice sells various adapters with different specs and ports). You may as well just get the monitor now.
While I do not use this particular attachment. I use a similar one for a studio microphone boom.
1. Side mounts will come up-side down out-of-the box. Make sure the little "U" valleys are pointing up on all three monitor mounts. The securing bolts should be facing up too.
2. The monitor mount consists of the mount base and the adapter plate that slides on the mount base. Don't try to mount the adapter plate to the monitor first and then slide it onto the mount base, especially those with VESA 75mm X 75mm monitors. The bolts used to attach the monitor will stick out on the adapter and you won't be able to slide the adapter plate into the mount base.
3. The adapter works for both VESA 100mm and 75mm and the product comes with 2 bolt sizes respectively. The spacer washers, however, are for VESA 100mm bolds only. You will need the washers if the monitor holes aren't too deep. Those with VESA 75mm be prepared to buy at least 12 plastic/metal washers.
4. As mentioned above, the adapter plate (that mounts onto the monitor) slides over the mount base (at the end of each arm) and then is secured vertically with 2 bolts. The holes on the mount base are threaded; by screwing the bolts in more or less you can control the height position of the adapter in relation to the mount base and therefore fine tune the height of the monitors in relation to the central monitor (that you can't move up/down).
5. DO NOT try to fine tune or align the height of the side mounts while the arms aren't under load. Install the monitors first then do the adjustments.
6. You will notice that the adapter bolts have locknuts that aren't tight (5-10 mm to go, each bolt differently). Before you do any mounting my advice is to tighten them until you leave 0.5-1 mm space so the bolts can still rotate freely. Otherwise your adapters will dangle and your side monitors won't be secured tight and will move freely vertically.

Also one thing that should probably be mentioned in the description is that if you want to fit 27-30 inch monitors know that you are not going to get much angel. I have 27 inch Asus and I get about 20-30 degrees of angle. I imagine 30 inch monitors would have to be straight across.
This mount was to complete a racing simulator on a budget. And know that is exactly what you are going to get.

The only thing I warn, as a few others have before, is they ship with the arm mounts upside down. Make sure they are rotated so the adjustment screws are facing up before you mount the outer monitors. But it's a simple fix so no reason to take a star for such a great deal. You won't go wrong with this for sure.

Overall, it does what I need. I have three monitors, they are spaced evenly and line-up horizontally, and I can adjust them horizontally, backward and forward, and angle them as needed, for the most part.
It's a little cumbersome to mount the outer monitors and make adjustments, but these are minor inconveniences. I have an HDMI with large ferrite core and a DVI cable inserted in the pole, and I'd put my VGA cable through it if I hadn't zip-tied it to all my USB cables long ago.
I do wish the pole was about 5-6 inches (127-152mm) longer, however, so that I could fit my laptop's open monitor underneath and have four screens. Ah, well. Still better than jury-rigging my laptop to sit between the two outer screens, as I had setup before.

The big problem I experienced was preventing the monitor from rotating side-to-side. There's no adjustment I can find to prevent it and the monitor will not stay level.
I would probably get something like this again, but not sure I would completely recommend this one...

1) I had to reconfigure the spacers in the arms to make it so the side monitor would be at the correct height.
2) the fine adjustments use a strange lock washer and screw. its extremely difficult to turn the lock washer. It's impossible to get the side monitors secure; they will always feel loose. And they still cant go as high as the center monitor.
3) the center monitor does not have height adjustments.
Whoever designed this needs to be smacked.
Guess it was worth the $55. Still, a huge pain.

I was unable to tighten the bolt that provides tension for the vertical rotation to stop the weight of the monitor from leaning forward.
There is several (5ish? This is a guess) degrees of sag on the arm itself.
There is very little height adjustments for the side monitors, so if your panels are not the same size for all 3, you're in for a bad time.
The height adjustment that there IS, is confounding. What is with the very odd plate + bolt/lock washer setup? Simplicity went out the window with this portion of the design.
If you have a cheap desk, the clamp will absolutely murder it. Use metal plates or blocks of wood on either side of the clamp.
In the end, I couldn't ever get the monitors adjusted and aligned properly; and when I did get them reasonably close, they all sagged/shifted despite my tightening all adjustment bolts as much as I physically could.
Took it down, went back to monitor shelves with their native stands. This stand is going back or in the trash.
