Purchased at auction, I have a large number of Steelcase Volley monitor arm kits - specifically they are dual arm conversion kits (FPVDCKCCTM). The dual arm conversion kit is essentially a complete single arm monitor mount kit with one additional part: a 1 post to 2 post adapter which you can use to allow mounting 2 arms on one desk clamp. You can set these up as dual arm mounts, but you would need to buy 2 kits to get 2 arms - each kit comes with a single arm (the 'dual conversion' was intended for customers who already had 1 volley arm and wanted to expand to 2 monitors - but they still included the desk clamp, so it is a complete single arm kit).

I bought 69 of these at auction. All are new, most are still factory sealed while some have been opened for inspection. I'm keeping some to upgrade my home office and selling the rest.

Some of the boxes to have dinged cardboard, but from inspecting how they packaged the contents (providing buffer space and more internal cardboard layers) I can say with certainty that those have no damage to the contents.

Item details:

So, these are premium monitor arm mounts made by Steelcase. The arm frames are cast aluminium and the surface finish is brushed aluminium with white accents. The swivel adjustment joints are detailed finished steel. The internal cable routing channels are enclosed with white plastic covers which match the white accents.

The VESA head has ~150 degrees of freedom in vertical tilt (full 90 degrees up allowing the monitor to face straight up, approximately 60 degrees available downward tilt). The VESA plate also has a tool-less connection to the articulating arm head: there is a hinged snap-clamp you open to access a drop-down channel which the back of the VESA plate slides into (it has a steel ring in the back that slides into this) and fits quite snugly. You then close the snap and that's it, no trying to hold the monitor at the arm while screwing it in place. This design also means the VESA plate is free-spinning - it can rotate around 360 degrees with no stop, but has just the right amount of friction resistance to make sure that it will stay at whatever angle you rotate it to. The head mount has one more trick: there is a rubber grommet you can remove from the head which provides you with a groove - you can screw in a steel spacer on the back of the VESA plate which fits into this groove and locks rotation if you don't want it to rotate.

The base has a 180 degree swivel channel which comes lightly pre-greased with a non-staining translucent/white grease to ensure easy gliding of the removable / repositionable stop pin. The desk clamp allows for a maximum of 1.6 inches opening to slide onto a desk and tighten down.

The swivel stop pin is installed in the default position that is intended for the monitor arm to face forward if the clamp is mounted at the rear of a desk, but has 4 cardinal points it can screw into allowing easy choice of what range of angle you want your monitor arm to swing through. It can also be removed and left out which gives you full 360 degree rotation.

The white plastic cable routing concealer panels slide-lock and snap-lock into place and are easily installed and removed without damage. They provide rather nice looking cable management and concealment which means no need for velcro or zip-ties for your cables.

The base post has a convenient low-resistance flexible plastic ring with a split at the back to allow for further easy cable routing that doesn't require you to pull a wire through a hole, only to slip it through the split at the back.

The arm mechanism for raising and lowering is really great - it ISN'T a gas piston or spring, but fully mechanical in design and very well executed. The effect you feel is that raising the monitor is smooth and easy (as long as you have the resistance setting not locked, but set to allow movement), while LOWERING has mechanically-induced friction resistance. There is a secondary arm on the underside which is connected to both swivels that operate for up/down movement. When pressed UP they are lifted off of contact from a friction surface and do not resist motion (again, if you have the adjustment bolts partially loosened - if further tightened they instead present *less* resistance than down motion)), but if pressed DOWN (from monitor weight or manual adjustment) the downward force engages the secondary arm and increases the friction resistance of the swivels. This is VERY USEFUL because it means there is no gas piston or spring to fight against. It means that, aside from being able to lock the angle to whatever you want by tightening those adjustment bolts, it also won't snap up if you want to un-mount the monitor. This means there is no *minimum* weight - if you have a small or ultralight monitor and you've tried to mount on a regular piston mount, only to find that it *always* creeps all the way back up? Not an issue with this design. This is an attractive, well-engineered, premium monitor mount.
