Im glad it handles 27" ers. THe only acceptable size of a monitor is 27 ! That just barely lets your eyes see all of it from 12" away, about a 170 degree field lol. I got Hanns-G 27"ers, cheap, not the best but cheap. I dont think they have VESA sockets.. Also- it would be good to know the MINIMUM size monitor the stand handles and can still make contiguous. Ie the throw of those 2 sliders. They look about 3" throw, each. So that means minimum mon size is ~ 25.5" to be contiguous. On 2nd look, the throw may be 6-8", under that plastic sleeve. Thats better.

There are 3 sliding hangers (the pivot brackets that hold the VESA mounts). Read my earlier comment or look at a video, Massdrop's description is vague or incorrect in places.
The brackets hook onto the main bar or onto the telescoping arms, and can slide anywhere along their lengths except for the hinges. The middle pivot can also slide (I don't know why Massdrop says 'set in place'), so you can shift everything around to avoid the hinges, as long as you're balanced over the wide base.
The Massdrop photos show a gap in each of the arms, because that's how it looks at full extension. There's no gap at all if you don't extend the arm. Since the bracket placement and the arm extension are both adjustable, you basically have the whole length of the crossbar available, end to end except hinges, regardless of throw.

I watched a video review for this just the other day:

Note that he specifically says that the stand 'barely' supports 27" monitors. I gather that if the bezels are considerably larger than the monitors he uses in the demonstration, it might not fit.
