                              The apple mount costs 1000 bucks because idiots will pay it. And I'm sure their warranties expire if you use a non apple mount.

Been using it for about 6 months now and had no problem holding up both of my 24 inch monitors. Good option for people with desks against the wall and don't wanna drill holes anywhere.
