Wirecutter Monitor Arm

If you attach your monitor to an adjustable arm, your workstation can be transformed and you can precisely position your screen(s) in a variety of orientations. Changing from a seated to a standing workstation is as simple as rotating your screen, moving it up and down, and adjusting the viewing angle for optimal comfort.

In addition to reducing eye strain and other discomforts that come from long hours at the computer, your desk is freed from a clunky monitor base, giving you more workspace. The dual monitor arm gives you additional flexibility and allows you to place the edge of the screen to the edge for an immersive viewing experience.

This list includes only monitor arms that are VESA-compatible. In other words, the “VESA standards” are standardized measurements that allow you to connect your monitor to different kinds of mounting devices. Almost all monitors on the market meet these standards, but you should always double-check your monitor’s model and make sure it meets these requirements.

What You Need To Know

Wirecutter Monitor Arm

Adjustability

In addition to being highly adjustable, monitor arm stands offer a lot more flexibility than freestanding mounts that come with most monitors. Many monitor stands cannot be adjusted up and down like monitor arms can. Monitor’s arms are able to be adjusted towards or away from you as well.

We recommend the Ergotron LX monitor arm if you’re looking for the highest degree of adjustability. This monitor arm boasts Constant Force technology, which is smooth and stays put even when you aren’t adjusting it.

Varidesk’s dual monitor arm is the best dual monitor stand for adjustability. With this mount, you can rotate and pivot 360 degrees and adjust its height and reach to fit your needs.

Size and weight limit

A monitor mount’s weight limit is another thing to keep in mind. In spite of the fact that most of the mounts on our list have comparable maximum weights, it’s still important to make sure the monitor won’t strain your arm too much before you buy it.

There are also specific limitations on the size of the arms on some of the two monitor models. Therefore, dual-arm models might not work well with some monitor sizes, like ultrawide monitors. If your monitors don’t exceed the weight limit, be sure that they will fit on the arms.

Ideal Ergonomics

Monitor arms can improve ergonomics, which is one of their strongest benefits. Here are some guidelines developed by Professor Alan Hedge and Cornell University to help you set up your monitor arm.

When you hold out your arm at shoulder level, the center of your monitor should align with your middle finger.

FAQ’s

Are monitor arm mounts worth it?

A monitor arm or mount will be useful to anyone who works at a computer for hours on end. When using dual, multi, or curved monitors, users have total control over the visual display of their work, resulting in greater productivity.

Do monitor arms shake?

Monitor arms usually rise from a post or gas arm system, as you can see in the design. Monitors will bounce and shake more if they are moved from where they are mounted. When you purchase a cheap, flimsy monitor arm, you will notice this problem more than if you purchase a high quality product.

How do I stop my monitor from shaking at my desk?

If the damping shim under the monitor does not work, a towel or rubber pad beneath the monitor may work as a dampening shim. The mass of the desk is essential to reduce the wobble to a point where the foam rubber pad or towel can control the remaining wobble. If you are unable or unwilling to mount the monitor on the wall, you can add mass to the desk.

Can monitors be wall mounted?

All monitors are mountable, so the answer is yes. A wall mount may be attached directly to the wall, and then have an arm that can be positioned in any position.

Do monitor arms work with any monitor?

The mounting bracket and size specifications are also crucial. Today, most monitors and monitor arms are VESA mount compatible, but be sure to check their specs before buying.

Final Verdict

Moreover, many people today consider curved screens only useful for gaming.

As a result, large corporations are beginning to use these screens to work on several windows or group projects, designs, and information, or to monitor everything at the same time. This is a worthwhile investment.

Due to these characteristics, you should have no difficulties selecting the best screen for you, whether you’re a gamer or a professional seeking a high-quality screen.
