Here are pics.
K-edge. Cool but fat. Like that the out-in-front arm aligns with the bottom of the stem, keeping the garmin in line with stem instead of above the stem.
Garmin's own offering. Ok but fat and plastic gets you worst of both worlds.
SRAM's offering. Light. 2nd place in looks to k-edge. Out-in-front arm aligns with top of the stem meaning the garmin is perched above stem. Torx screw is hard to swap to ti or aluminum because it's a funky size.
RaceWare version for Garmin 800/810. Lightest. Was 14.x with standard bolt, it was easy to swap for a ti bolt, bringing it to 13.8. Out-in-front arm aligns with bottom of stem, keeping Garmin in line with stem. RaceWare branding looks a bit chintzy but it's raised black-on-black lettering and at this point we're really nitpicking.
RaceWare has worked well so far on rides, no complaints.

Dead 14g with screws (that was V1 though, don't know about V2).

Only reason to buy this over sram is the gaudy white sram logo if you are a campy/shimano guy. But you can paint over that easily if you prefer the looks of the sram mount.
For me, the raceware is still the winner. Looks normal, light at below 14g, no gaudy logos, mounts garmin in line with stem, and it works...
The difference here is two-fold. First, you actually save money going raceware or sram over k-edge (whilst also saving weight). Second, unlike a stem where stiffness is paramount, these little things are only dead weight if they are built heavier than they need to be to hold a garmin in place when you hit bumps on the road. In short, you aren't losing any function with the lighter mounts. If they work, they work.
i've used the barfly 1.0 and 1.1, garmin out front. at the time, i didn't see any option for the lower raceware version...but it looks quite nice and lower than barfly.
the SRAM mount never appealed to me since it is top mounted (like barfly)..not flush mounted like the never mounts.
the Garmin mount takes my 800 nicely (no surprise here), although it is not entirely straight with the stem (Enve stem and bar). i'm willing to try out the raceware once.
