Don't judge this unit by the photos. It's far sturdier than it looks here. The base is very heavy, and the arms are as well. Not just flimsy pipes. Well worth the money.
Any caveats I've noticed should be expected with a unit like this.
Be aware that mounting the monitors should probably not be done without at least a little help. You will need to make sure the unit remains balanced while you mount the displays. That's a bit of a trick, but not too difficult to manage if you raise them into place while someone else quickly tightens the arms. It's a good idea to have someone hold the center pole upright while you adjust the monitor spacing.
In addition, I highly recommend using this stand only with matching monitors opposite each other. Don't go over the 24" recommendation either. I have two on the bottom, and I highly doubt a larger one would fit.
I've had mine set up for about a day now, with two Dell U2410's on the bottom, and one Proview 22" on top. I'm waiting for another 22" to arrive from Dell today. I have a feeling the Dell will be heavier than the Proview, so I may have to adjust them slightly off center for balance.
It's not about to fall over or anything, but there is, with three monitors mounted, a slight but noticeable tilt, even tough the Proview is mounted as close to center as it can be (you cannot mount dead center with this unit).
This mount is probably best used at desktop level, not on a raised platform, due to line of sight with the upper displays. You may want to make sure your upper monitors have a very wide vertical angle of visibility, especially if you do use this on a raised platform or bridge. There are NO tilt adjustments. Only aspect rotation.
If you're thinking of using it for vertical displays, take very careful note of your displays outer dimensions, AND this unit's specs. No way will four 24" displays fit on this in vertical configuration. You'll want smaller displays for that.
I have mine sitting on the bridge of an Omnirax workstation, which is on wheels. I have to move the entire workstation occasionally to get to wiring behind it. Stability was a major concern for me. I was afraid I might have to clamp the base down for safety when moving the station. This unit is so stable, I moved the entire station several times the day I got the stand, and it never even wiggled.
This unit is well worth the investment!
The pic shows it waiting for the final display, arriving later today.
Pros:digital audio workstation, web design, some video work

Great product! Allows easy view of multiple windows and quick to set up. 2 caveats. 1. The 2 monitors on the upper tier require a little getting used to in the adjustment of line of vision. Just sit back a little farther in your chair 2. If you are ordering monitors with USB ports, make sure they line up on the OUTSIDE edges or you will lose the use of 2 of them.
