The Ergotron Neo-Flex Desk Mount Tablet Arm is a great way to hold a tablet or even smaller tablet computers up off your desk or counter to keep it clutter free. The Neo-Flex Tablet Arm mounts to the side of a desk or table using the clamp or bolt and knob hold down.
The Neo-Flex Tablet Arm has an upright post with two arm sections and behind the tablet mount it has a three way swivel to allow a wide range of views. The arm has a cable management clip on each section for use of a charging cable power cables for small monitors.
The mounting solutions of a clamp or the bolt allow you to mount the arm on a desk, counter or table for easy solutions in an office or at home. The mount has an L bracket that can be reversed for thicker or thinner surfaces to mount them on using either the bolt or clamp.
The arm has a push button rotating joint that allows you to move the second arm 90 degrees for a wide variety of positions and extends out about 19 inches. The arm swivels well and allows you to move a tablet in a variety of positions for the best viewing and use of your tablet.
The tablet holder from the Neo-Flex Tablet Arm holds tablets well with two sliding arms for the bottom of your tablet and a top swivel clamp. The bottom arms that hold a tablet have a bottom and side clip as well as a height adjustment using two screws.
The tablet holder has a top clamp that uses a spring to hold the top of your tablet but it has a rubber pad to protect the tablet from scratches. The clamp works well and the holder can handle tablets from 5.5 by 8 inches up to 8 by 9.75 inches but you can remove the tablet cradle to use the VESA mount as well.
The Neo-Flex can hold smaller monitors but you have to watch the weight as the tablet arm can hold up to 2.5 pounds so that you don’t overstress the joints. The tablet cradle works well for medium and large tablets but for small ones like the Nexus 7 you may need something else.
I simply mounted a couple of L brackets on the VESA mount and screwed a Nexus 7 cradle to that to hold my Nexus 7 on the Neo-Flex Tablet Arm. The Tablet Arm has the two cable clamps so the cable for the tablet cradle fits well from the tablet to below the desk where my outlet is.
The Neo-Flex Desk Mount Tablet Arm is a great way to hold larger tablets and does a great job of keeping my tablet out of the way for more room on my desk. I highly recommend the Neo-Flex Desk Mount Tablet Arm from Ergotron as a great tablet mount or smaller monitor arm.
