although all of the production houses are going to get the VESA adapter (still $200!) and drop it into their existing editing bays. The only people who would get the stand are people with too much money and a desire for the aesthetic. For anyone else, dropping $300 total on something like this is just a better choice.
It's a gas spring arm I found in my local electronics store. I can't see any mention of it on the internet so I assume it's a rebranded arm from somewhere else.
I kinda wanna switch it out for the Amazon Basics monitor arm as mine is a bit on the weak side for this monitor. Having problems with it tilting down all the time.
For the same price, why not consider the AmazonBasics Single Premium Monitor Stand (made by Ergotron)? It holds up my bulky 22 pound monitor with ease, even at a loose tension level -- had to actually lower the tension considerably because the tilt and arm would not budge on stock with the monitor on.
It also has quite a bit of reviews mentioning the stand in tandem with the AW3418DW.
I agree with the opinion on the stand - it's pretty terrible. I have them both on Amazon Basic mounts.
I bought this one, which I bought for $90 at the time. There are obviously cheaper alternatives that I was unaware of since I didn't want to do a lot of searching at the time.
Having had this arm, and a few others in the past, I feel all that differs in quality from one arm to the next is the gas spring. I wonder if two different arms that advertised the same holding weight are just using the same spring or not. If they are, then it's just packaging and advertising that differs from one model to the next.
After that, the only things left to set arms apart is the mounting method (clamp, bolt or socket), color, general look, possible adjustment angles (up, down, left, right, tilt, swivel, and rotate is pretty standard on everything), and the built in cable holders.
Monitor arms are a godsend for eliminating wobble. Any wobble while I’m typing or whatever drives me up the wall but once I started using desk mounts it was completely solved. I now put every monitor on a mount at home or work without exception — as an added bonus you have much more freedom with rotating and positioning them.
I currently use two big ultrawides one on top of the other (a 34” and a 38”). They’re on separate mounts because I didn’t trust a dual mount to hold up that much weight, and I was sure the top one would wobble anyway because it’s suspended from a 3 foot tall pole, but unless I slam the table or actually bump the monitors themselves, neither of them move.
I’m using this one for the 38”, but honestly I think even cheaper mounts will be fine as long as the can support the weight of your monitor.
Do you mean this one?
Both are very good.
It's not mounted to the wall. It's mounted to the desk. Something like this:
I cannot recommend enough the Amazon Basics monitor stand: [link]
I have two of them, one for my ultrawide and another for my side monitor, they're quality
Looks like this:
I had no issues using a standard Amazon Basics single monitor arm with an AW3418DW. It maxes out at VESA 100x100 (no grinding required), and was able to support the weight.
No idea on dual arms that support this much weight on one of the arms and are 100x100 though, sorry.
it’s an Amazon basic and it’s pretty perfect for me. they keep going up in price.. I think it was 98 bucks last Christmas.. I use the laptop tray With mine since the 13hd doesn’t have a mount. I like being able to push it out of the way when I don’t need it but not having to really put it away to keep it safe.
iMac Pro is the late 2017 base model.
It is mounted on an Amazon Basics arm.
Amazon Basics arm
It was this one here:
Amazon Basics Single Monitor Stand
However, it is VERY worth mentioning that the screws that came with the arm mount were too long. I had already purchased the stand from Wacom (mentioned by OP) so I just swapped those screws out. But if you don't have them, you would have to find another solution.
Do you mean these?
It's actually more expensive than the one OP mentioned and it's only rated for 25 lbs vs the 33 lbs.
I have the AmazonBasics arm my Acer X34 and there's only 7 or 8" of space below the bottom edge of the monitor. That arm has a 25 lbs limit.
The LG panels used in your monitor all weigh around 20 pounds so I'd suggest looking at the weight limit instead of dimension limit of arms. And look for one that has a high mounting base pole in the back, I remember seeing a few tall ones on Amazon. That's assuming you want a desk clamp mounted arm. A wall mounted arm would be easier to get the height right.
I’ve been using the Amazon basic for about a year and a half with no issues. You need to crank up the spring tension but it holds the Acer 38” just AmazonBasics Premium Single Monitor Stand - Lift Engine Arm Mount, Aluminum - Black [link]
This one is an ergotron copy (probably made by ergotron themselves) and it's very good quality. I have a couple of them and couldn't be happier.
It’s the amazon basics monitor arm: AmazonBasics Premium Single Monitor Stand - Lift Engine Arm Mount, Aluminum - Black [link]
It’s definitely on the pricier side but I found it worth it because of its ability to adjust so seamlessly, especially when I change the desk to sit/stand mode. Maybe try buying a slightly used version off amazon and it might be about $30-40 cheaper!
They make a tray for it also that will hold the tablet if you have a smaller tablet.. but im getting rid of mine for a larger size cutting board. i want to be able to grab the edges and mount my pen to it
This is the one I use for the desk mount. It's super easy to move around a 38" monitor in any direction with it.
AmazonBasics Premium Single Monitor Stand - Lift Engine Arm Mount, Aluminum - Black [link]
This one: [link]
It works pretty well, no major complaints. It could stand to be a little more smooth during adjustments but it holds its place very well and the cable management is pretty great.
I have two of these mounted to a monitor stand that is built-in to my desk, each holding a AW3418DW. Each one can raise up about 10" above the stand.
I used this for my x34. The allen key for the arm tightener isn't standard so it needs to be kept safe so it's not lost. It holds my monitor easily and I think it could take more weight easily.
I use my arms to switch back and forth between the ultrawide and the 240hz screens and this arm with the heavier monitor is far better than a cheaper, smaller arm I'm using on a much lighter monitor. It can take the weight of the monitor when elongated all of the way to the left, when I center the 24" 240hz and I put this monitor to its left.
nice! I took my g-sync sticker off, I like the cleaner look
I've had mine for a couple months. Some bleed in the corners yeah but only when there isn't an image on the screen....so it doesn't bother me too much. plus microcenter warranty.
Also screw that huge stand, I got the amazon basics and it made a world of difference, 360 degree rotation.... why gain all that screen real estate when it destroys your desk real estate space?
Pretty much every monitor will work in portrait mode since it is done through software (Windows). Some monitors come with stands that allow 90° rotations and it will be there in the product pictures on the site if it does support such a feature.
If not, I would make sure it has VESA mount compatibility at least so that you could use the portrait monitor and maybe even the Ultrawide on a single stand.
i have this one already, im hoping it can do the job, if not ill have to go for the wacom. but oh! the LX hd, can support the 24?
ill def be buying the wacom vesa
I’d recommend the Amazon Basics single monitor arm. I’m using it to hold a 34” ultrawide monitor (Alienware AW3418DW) and it does the job perfectly. You just need to tighten the spring since the monitor is heavy. Once tightened it’s super solid.
AmazonBasics Premium Single Monitor Stand - Lift Engine Arm Mount, Aluminum [link]
There is a cheaper amazon basics version that appears to be the same exact thing (compared mine with a friends) [link]
It was one of the best purchases for me, the ability to put the monitor up at the proper height has really helped my posture and removed a lot of my back problems.
At home, my battletop sits on a Nextstand K2 for the same reason, a lot cheaper though.
If you do go with a new monitor stand, I'd highly recommend the Amazon basics single monitor arm mount [link]
I got one for my AW3418DW and I love it. I don't have a very deep desk either, and it made a world of difference!
EDIT: Removed a redundancy from copy/pasting.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND THE FREEDOM ARM
Get the Amazon Arm instead [link]
Yeah if they're 60hz then it should be no problem at all. HDMI can support any resolution up to 4k @ 60hz. For the desk mounts, I use 3 amazon basics monitor mounts. They are super simple to set up, go high enough to turn even my 27" monitors vertically, and support even the heaviest of monitors (the alienware is pretty heavy, keep that in mind if you want to shop around for other mounts - a lot won't support the weight). Most importantly - they last! I've had one hold up my huge dell ultrawide for like 3 years and the pneumatics still hold up great and continue to hold it even at it's highest elevation.
2 Dell S2716DGR's and 1 AW3418DW. The 2 Dells are pretty much everything I was looking for in a monitor, 144hz, 1ms response time, gsync enabled, 27 inch, and 1440p. Highly recommend them, only downside is their a TN panel so viewing angles aren't the best. For mounts, I use the 3 amazon basics mounts, they're extremely easy to set up and have held my old giant Dell ultrawide for almost 3 years and continue to hold up my Alienware I have now just fine. I have 4 in total and if I ever need another mount, I have no doubt I'll just buy another amazon one. I just don't trust a $30 mount to hold up a $500/1,000 monitor, this one's heavy, solid metal that I would trust with any monitor I own
I use this from Amazon and it holds weight just fine. I don’t think you can go wrong with either choice.
I have had all three of those desks actually for different purposes. You must go with the ikea one and maybe consider having chair legs on every corner.
I can tell you if you buy an Origami you will regret it. The footspace under neath is too high up, it will feel like sitting in a first graders desk. It is really lightweight, easy to move, and good value though.
I'd be worried about the Coavas because the wood looks really thin.
What I did was bought your traditional pick your own parts Ikea desk. Put a leg on every corner. I used amazon basics monitor arm and put it on the corner of the desk. I'm not sure I trust putting it in the direct center. If you have multiple heavy monitors you may consider getting multiple monitor arms to balance the weight.
In the picture you showed it looks like an ikea desk. You can tell the monitor arm is not designed well as all the weight seems to really be centered and towards the front of the desk. The base is also really small which makes a small pressure point. So look for a monitor arm with a larger base.
How much do you want to spend? How big is your display? These are very common for desks to allow PC monitors to reposition and rotate, but you might struggle if the display is over 30".
Several people have already said that a chair is good to have, so I'll suggest one of these for each monitor:
Lets you switch from sit to stand quickly & easily, and lets you adjust your screens' positions individual to accommodate monitors of different models or sizes. Highly recommended.
I went with 3 of the AmazonBasics Premium Single Monitor Stands
They do make a dual one but for my setup it was better to get 3 single ones. They don't take up too much space and honestly, I don't even notice them. You could even grommet mount them if you want to have them take up even less space.
Thank you for the well thought out reply. I appreciate it. I think I am gonna go with the Amazon Basics Monitor arm. It has been recommended here before. But just in case do you think this monitor arm be a correct fit for AW3418DW?
I might be as close... for a while at least. I'm maybe 70-80cm from my 2709W right now. A bit too close, but no choice with current desk configuration. I unfortunately missed out on this Prime deal today ($100 down from $133). Will have to await another mount deal.
Good to hear you're enjoying yours. I feel like this is a slight gamble even at the reduced price, given the BLB and occasional forum reports of issues.
What would be the benefit of my raising all 3 of my screens rather than just the one I need? I am curious is all, compared to something like this [link]
I have a small space and desk. For that and looks of course I actually got a Thermaltake P5 wall-mount computer. With nice liquid cooling it looks really neat, AND moves it off the desk.
Then buy a monitor arm. It will get rid of the stand etc off of your desk for more space yet.
Once my ultrawide gets here I will have a over-under setup with a 27" 1440p on top and Alienware ultrawide below, both on monitor arms bolted to the walls. Then all you have is keyboard/mouse to worry about.
All of this stuff is even super cheap compared to most things.
Same as the others [link]
Im pretty in love with it. I'm using it on an X34P. My main complaint on the X34P is that the stand is massive and takes up way too much real estate. This has solved that. I also noticed its mostly heavy metal quality and extremely sturdy. A lot of arms Ive used were largely plastic. I dropped one of the arms and almost cracked my floor. Very impressed.
It's just the amazon basics one. It's relatively inexpensive and works very well.
Don't buy Ergotech :) just go for the AmazonBasic Arms. They are exactly the same without the nice Silver finish but half the price.
Works for ASUS PG348Q just fine
I use this desk mounted monitor arm from AmazonBasics and it works great for easy monitor positioning. I've also heard really good things about Ergotron monitor arms.
If the back of the display is vesa mount compatible, you could get one of those arms that mounts to your desk, since you can't wall mount it due to the window.
I'd say use the grommet hole to install this:
I don't think anything will fit onto the back of that desk, unless you wanted to screw into to it and mount the plate directly to the desk, instead of using a c clamp to attach it.
If you want something that allows you to pull the screen forward maybe this is waht you're looking for. It gives you full range of motion basically; height/swivel/tilt/depth/etc. There's also gas spring arms that are wall mountable as well.
I have the Amazon Basics version of the Ergotron gas arm and I can say it is really really nice. The tension is adjustable so it can support almost any monitor. Has no problem with the 34" ultrawide I put on it.
My only concern is monitor arms mounting onto the Vivistand Quattro - worried that they won't be able to clamp onto the back with the track system.
I have this one if you have any ideas [link]
Hey, FYI these are back in stock.
Also I'm looking forward to your update on Omen vs x34. My x34 came Friday and it's pretty much perfect except for some minor light bleed, which frankly I expected and don't mind too much because I game with a lamp on in my room. I don't see myself sending this bad boy back.
Best of luck in the lottery.
Edit: also the date on my x34 was November 2016, which I thought was kinda old given what I've read on here from others. I ordered from Amazon.
Ill be honest that arm looks like it would struggle with big monitors, I would get some reassurance first.
My own X34 goes on this. Obviously the dual arm is substancially more than you are looking at spending though
I use the AmazonBasics Single Display Monitor Mounting Arm on my X34. The weight and size of the X34 is no problem. Fantastic build quality and sturdiness because it's just a rebranded Ergotron. It even comes in an Ergotron box!
For me it is. When I look up at a screen it makes me dizzy.
I have 3, but to the left and right, and It takes up about 4.5 feet of desk.
If you have enough width in the room, but the desk isn't wide enough you can get flex arms and float the monitors in the air over the edge of the desk.
Not a chair, but Amazon has a monitor mount for about $100 - add a keyboard stand/bench/cardboard box, and you've got a sit-stand desk.
I think you're talking about a telescoping monitor arm like this [link] . I don't know how far it extends, but it might be reasonable enough.
I have this monitor and this card. It runs great. I don't max out settings on new games (Black Ops 3) but, the Witcher 3, MGS V, Fallout 4 all look amazing. It's more about learning which settings will boost the FPS without affecting too much. With Fallout 4, I turned off the setting that had god rays and it worked great after that. MGS V worked flawlessly. I think I had to tone down The Witcher 3 but, I might be mistaken. Either way, it still looks good enough that I'll just stare at the landscapes.
I know it's not a graphical powerhouse but, The Witness looks absolutely stunning. I chose the Dell because I've always appreciated the color quality of the Ultrasharps and I do video/photo correction. Needless to say, the color palette of The Witness popped off the screen.
The screen is great. The stand is not. It has a good tilt range and can rotate fairly well. I just found that getting used to the real estate of 21:9, I had to readjust the monitor a lot. I eventually go this monitor arm from Amazon. I can't imagine going back to a normal monitor stand.
i see the 25xw recommended a bit. is there a similar performant monitor that can be mounted on with something like this [link]
the 25xw doesn't look like it has support for this
So I just purchased the Amazon single mount, [link]. It's a copy of the ergotron LX and has great reviews. I have a U3415W and an IKEA galant desk too, the reviews said it should be fine, and I was also concerned about the galant thickness, about 1 inch, so I'll post a trip report on Friday when it comes.
With the desk mount, it mounts to the very back edge of the desk. Shouldn't take up any significant amount of space on the desk. Either way, this Amazon basics arm can mount to either the wall or a desk: [link]
I bought this one. [link]
Good news, it's down to $101.
Amazon sells an Ergotron arm that's branded as AmazonBasics Premium Single Monitor Stand. It's 100$, but is half the price of the Ergotron branded one.
And your sketch made me giggle, haha!
Edit: Added links to the Amazon & Ergotron models. If you look at the Amazon product in black, one of their images shows what's included in the box. If you view this image and look at the manual, at the top left is the Ergotron logo. I used to have two of these Erogtron branded arms from 2005-2017. They are AWESOME though spendy--the Amazon branded one is a great deal. Great articulation/adjustment options. I have junky monitor arms in my office and they work as far as holding your monitor, but you can't adjust on-the-fly, they require tools to tighten/loosen bolts and feel flimsy.

Ergotron LX Desk Mount LCD Arm
FYI, when you post Amazon links you can delete all the “ref” (reference) stuff. That’s just Amazon trying to track you/how you got to the link. Example URL:
At least some Amazon Basics monitor arms are rebranded Ergotron arms.
I use this one on my 38" UW and it's Rock solid:
AmazonBasics Premium Single 32inch... (.ca link)
Value: I think they're all essentially the same... The Northern Bayou one tends to be really cheap, also pretty plasticy. If you want something premium, and understand how there can be value to that, check out the AmazonBasics which is a rebranded Ergotron LX with MINOR changes. https://www.amazon.ca/AmazonBasics-Premium-Single-Monitor-Stand/dp/B00MIBN16O/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=amazonbasics+monitor+arm&qid=1602103025&s=office&sr=1-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUE3NlFBQVBPTjBHUFEmZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTA5MzAyODUzR0g1WTEwNURLV1VBJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTA5NDE2NzIxNEs3RFg0SThXVVgmd2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9hdGYmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl
I use the AmazonBasics Bras de support pour moniteur for my AW3418DW, very solid and convenient (not sure if it’s also available in UK)
1) Yes in the UK. It took exactly 7 days to arrive from order.
2) I already had an amazonbasics one ([link]). It works really well for a 32" screen I have.
3) I got the programmable headset which is nice. Also got the extended legs so I could lower it farther (I like my desks really low when sitting). I also got a single UK power grommet which I'm using for phone/laptop charging. I avoided their wire tamers (the kit was sold out as well), and bought some good ones on amazon ([link]). They work great, but it took me a while to screw them into the desk. I was very careful, and the desk is quite solid. If you want to get these, I recommend doing the predrill very carefully, and only do every other screw - it suggests 9 screws per basket which is overkill, I only did 5. It would be nice if they pre-installed holes for wire tamers, it's probably the main thing lacking out of the box.
4) 32" monitor mounted with monitor arm, and two speakers mounted as well on the back end of the desk. Otherwise just your normal desk stuff, a lamp, keyboard, laptop, etc. It's very stable overall, no noticeable wobble while working on it. When raised, I can wobble it a small amount back and forth if I push the desk. I blame that on my carpet and that the weight is back loaded because of my largish monitor and speakers. It's not noticeable when working on it, only when I try to move it. There's virtually no side to side wobble at all. Overall it's much more stable than the Ikea Bekant (non-standing) desk I was using before and I'm happy with the stability.
5) You mean contoured? I went with the rectangular top. Mostly because at 180cm, and with my room shape, I knew I wouldn't be centered in the desk. The contour sort of forces you to center yourself in the desk. If I went with a smaller desk I would have considered going contoured. I also wanted as much desk space as possible, as the desk is a bit less deep than my prior desk. I've never used a contoured desk though, so it could be I'm missing out. I'm happy with it though.
6) Well my wife thought it was going to be too large. But screw it, it's my office, haha. I actually love it and I'm glad I went with 180cm over 160cm. I was previously on a 140cm desk, and the extra desk space makes such a big difference. I have room to put all my stuff (aka junk according to the missus). It's a great size I think, if you can fit it. The desk is not overly deep either (I had a 100cm deep desk before, and this is 80cm), so it feels like I have more room space too despite being a lot wider.
7) Mostly because I could customize easily on their website, and also all the reviews on youtube, etc. seem to be pretty good. I know you can't really trust these reviews, but I went for it anyways because it's really hard to find non biased information on desks. There are a few smaller companies in the UK but I couldn't find that much objective info on them or youtube videos showing the desk in detail.
Hope this helps! Good luck.
Here you are my good sir
I'm using the Amazon Basics mount on my LG 34", works great.
It's actually Ergotron (it even says it on the box) but the Amazon branded version is cheaper. You'll probably need a second mount for the 24", most of the dual mounts are not made for ultrawide.
The Amazon VESA arm mounts have been solid in my experience. They are actually rebranded Ergotron stands, so super build quality and reliability. Whether you go single or dual is likely a matter of personal preference, but the dual-arm version is solid.
I have the Amazon basics premium arm and I'm really happy with it. I also needed something to extend my monitor past the edge of my desk (which is 25 inches / 63 cm). It works great and since your desk is 50cm, it should have plenty of clearance past the edge for you. It's a solid mount, too.
Alienware AW3418DW Monitor
The monitor is insane but I paid that price around late 2018. Wait it out for a sale. The monitor mount is absolutely amazing. I have the monitor pushed back for all my other games and productivity but the mount makes it so easy to move the monitor forward for driving games.
Works like a charm and pretty easy to set up!
Thanks. This one: [link]
It's likely a combination of high cost and low demand. This is a highly articulated arm with an integrated gas or spring counterbalance that calibrated to offset a weight of up to 3 lbs. I would imaging the ex-factory cost of something like this would be around $90, which is more than a lot of mic booms retail price. The reason whey can get away with this pricing is because their target customer isn't an end user, but a business. Not many end users need this kind of build, articulation, or an on-air indicator.
Seems like if you were a little bit handy, you could knock this off with a VESA monitor mount.
https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Premium-Single-Monitor-Stand/dp/B00MIBN16O looks pretty close.
https://www.amazon.com/North-Bayou-Monitor-Computer-14-3lbs/dp/B01AI2YGK4 might be a good lower cost starting point.
In either case, you're going to need to open the arm with the weight offset and cripple it enough that you can properly position the arm without it flying away from you. This might mean removing the gas cylinder and replacing it with a spring, heating or replacing the existing spring, etc.
The other part is you'll need to replace the VESA mount with a 3/8 or 5/8 threaded mount for your mic. There are 100mm square plates you can buy to do this but they'll look awful. Better bet might be to make a small U-shaped bracket out of metal and put the arm mount on one end and the mic mount on the other. This part is really going to depend on the kind of arm you buy.
I think the Amazon Basics premium arm is the all around goto for this. I got it for my 38GN950 based on seeing multiple other people saying the same thing.
I understand that it is just an Ergotron LX just rebranded and 40 bucks cheaper.
This guy loves it:
Need to double check measurements, but looking like I will use 2 separate mounts. Though I know there are some double arm mounts that would work, they are pretty $$$.
I'm thinking I might try the following:
for the UW: [link]
for the 25" to stack above the UW: [link]
Oh thanks! Is it this one?
You'll probably be fine, but I would suggest a mount arm. This one is going well for me:
I'm using this one for the LG, works great.
This is the one I use, hasn't let me down yet (for 34" UW).
I'm using this one, works great.
It says it supports up to 32" but 34" UW works fine. Just be sure to check the weight.
Most monitors with a VESA mount have a removable stand. That's been the case with every Dell monitor I have used. Add monitor arm (this is a really good one):
This bracket is $11:
I use this setup with my NUC8 and a Dell U2415, and I have easily connected other computers too.
Not the guy you responded to, but I used this: [link]
Can be attached to a desk or a wall. I don't remember what brand but this amazonbasics is a rebrand of a good one but half the price, really happy with this one.
And if you use three of these you should be able to make the setup you want.
This [link] is a triple one and looks like the same rebrand but I'm absolutely not sure, and I'm not sure it could get the positions you want considering the size of the screens
is this the one?
Based off his previous post https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Premium-Single-Monitor-Stand/dp/B00MIBN16O
This is the arm!
Trying to find the wallpaper!
Yeah it’s the weight that’s the issue.
This one will work for you.
I have this stand that just cramps on to a desk
Yeah grabbing a Vesa mount is handy.
I grabbed that and this mount.
The best I can recommend to you it's a arm mount [link]
Will do, like this one? [link]
You can, this is the one I have. https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Premium-Single-Monitor-Stand/dp/B00MIBN16O/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=vesa+arm&qid=1596143500&sr=8-5

Will it work with this Amazon Basics arm? I'm asking because this arm is supposedly a rebranded Ergotron (from what I heard).
Hello, thank you for the guide. My G9 looks like it's showing up this week (originally had an ETA of November), and so now I'm trying to find a good monitor arm for it. I'll probably go the mod method where I remove the OEM mount from the G9 and swap that onto the arm.
I've seen people say the Amazon Basics arm is the same as the Ergotron, just rebranded. Would that work for the G9? The price gap is huge.
Amazon Basic: [link]
Another one I've seen suggested is the WALI: [link]
If the Ergotron is the best option, is there a recommended site? Or just anywhere with it in stock?
Finally, are there any recommendations for a dual monitor (vertical) mount for the G9? Thinking of doing G9 and having a 4K TV above it for movies, etc. I imagine I'd lose some flexibility? Would I be better off with 2 separate mounts then?
Any and all input is appreciated -- thank you!
Looks like an Amazon basics monitor arm. Maybe this one?
Specifically, this was the mount I got:
It's the Amazon Basics version of this:
(I own both and the Amazon one is exactly the same, down to the nameplate in the base.)
You can tighten the spring in the extension part so it stays very rigid, though I tend to rest the edge of the tablet on my desk. There are also tightening screws on all joints that can make turning it less likely.
And here's my setup:
I drilled a hole in my table and mounted the arm that way. It allows me to swing it around more to where I use it.
Another option I use the Amazon monitor arm on mine - it's great.
I'm actually using the Amazon Ergotron generic [link]
The trick is to tighten the spring (underside of the arm) and it'll hold things up just fine. The Cintiq weighs more than the Dell and holds pretty well as well. For the arms on the side I"m using the Ergotron extension to get more reach.
The Amazon is such a perfect generic that Ergotron accessories fit on it perfectly.
I got the one from amazon basics
Maybe if you tighten some screws? I had to tighten some on this arm for it to hold well my monitor
Don't go back... but you can go forward: AW3418DW feet take up a ton of desk real estate.
AmazonBasics Premium Single Monitor Stand or Ergotech Heavy Duty Freedom Arm -- can't go wrong with either one.
Congrats on ascending -- AW3418DW is great monitor !

Need a monitor arm for my desk and I've gotten a lot of recommendations for the AmazonBasics one, which is surprisingly over $100. People are telling me that it's really good because it's around $100 but made by Ergotron who make those $300+ monitor arms.
My question is what really sets apart that AmazonBasics monitor arm from a much cheaper option like this one (oh which there are many on Amazon for around that price point that all look roughly the same to my eyes)?
Just buy the Amazon Basic monitor arm. It is the exact same. I have two of them
Have the Ergotron at work, and Amazon at home. And except for the color, they are the same
I have two of the "AmazonBasics Premium Single Monitor Stand - Lift Engine Arm Mount, Aluminum - Black" I've learned that "Ergotron – LX Dual Stacking Arm" uses the same arms and mounting base as the Amazon version (likely a partnership of the sorts). Is there a replacement pole I can purchase to support stacking of my displays as shown? would prefer to not have to spend the money to purchase an entire arm if I can upgrade my current gear for significantly less. :)
I cannot speak for that monitor arm, but I have two of the amazon monitor arms that support adjustments holding up a 34" UW, and a 27" monitor attached to my Fully Jarvis 78x30. It's a thin top desk, but have had zero issue with the arms or desk (I move my desk frequently as well for cleaning). I will say if you purchase cable management channels (which I highly recommend getting something to support your cables), be careful how close to the edge you place them as the arm obviously needs space on the back lip to grab hold.
Here is a comment I replied way down:
Good Q, took me a while to get the point I'm now extremely content with. I started with Amazon Basics desk clamp when it was just my X34P. Well, that is now slightly bent due to the sheer weight of the UW.
I then bought an Amazon Basics wall mount which is now what it is on. Solid as a rock, I think I could hang on that arm and it wouldn't nudge. I used to have a 3rd monitor and I had both 24in verticals mounted on the Amazon Basics desk clamps (yes the bent one included).
BUT those are very clunky and don't look very good (see here) so I bought this beast that I mounted my one remaining 24in monitor too. It is extremely low profile and I've seen another user mount an UW to it, but iirc it was a 29in. This is the key to my setup right now because I have about 6 or 7 wires snaked down the clamp so you can't see any of them.
So at the end of the day, Amazon Basics Wall Mount for stability on the UW, VIVO desk clamp for low profile and wire hiding. You can see the wall mount beneath and to the right of the UW and if you look closely to the right of the vertical monitor behind the plant and speaker you can see where the clamp mount is,
Is it this one for $122? Couldn't find anything that had "gas" in the name.
This thing is absolutely amazing - especially for ultrawides. I had it using a AW3418DW which is around 16 pounds without the stand. It was rock solid and I was able to move it around daily too without any shake or wobble.
I have mine on an Amazon Basics single monitor arm. I had to crank down on the tension pretty good to get it to stop sagging down onto my desk, but after the initial pucker factor of "I hope this doesn't randomly break and drop my obscenely expensive monitor" it's been fine.
If you want to constantly move your monitor around to different positions, I'd suggest something else. I haven't found this arm to be very enjoyable for moving monitors around period. Even with a 25" 16:9 its felt clunky doing that. But in a static position, it works great one you get the monitor where you want it.
Yes, I did. The arm is actually an Amazon Basics arm.
I have a 24 and 38 inch next to each other.
The 38" is mounted using the Amazon Basics Premium Stand
The 24 inch is mounted using the VIVO premium Aluminum stand
You could also use This VIVO stand here depending on how big your desk is and where you mount it.

I used the Amazon Basics mount ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MIBN16O/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ) with my X34 and it was solid. It's even holding up my new 49" C9 now ... vertically at least. The tilt is another story lol.
Check out the Amazon Basics mounts. They're well made and priced well. I use this one for my 38" UW:
[link] (Canadian Link, sorry)
Ah ok that's good to know weight is the main factor.
I was looking at this one, since I have an amazon credit card and some credit with them>
Any thought on this one?
Amazon Link - Also had to buy the VESA adaptor for the monitor.
i have the same desk and ordered this from Amazon:
it should fit your desk as well even with the cable management (you might have to disassemble and assemble the clamp to get around the tight fit).
PCPartPicker Part List
I'd go with something like this and then get him a monitor mount. [link]
What you mean you can't find anything on Amazon?... Are you in the USA? Because there are dozens upon dozens of fully articulating mounts there.
For example Amazon Basics 25 lbs support...
NB North Bayou 20 lbs support.
Those are assuming you want full control... but if you just want it to sit there stationary then any simple desk mounted stand would do.
You will be happy with it (assuming nothing wrong, defects/etc which are very unlikely). The monitor is freaking awesome. I bought a mount Arm to get the big stand off the desk from Amazon -a bit pricey but is REALLY nice.
Hi, Can't comment on the PRO, but I have the kamvas 20 for a week. I'm happy.
After calibrating with my spyder x colorimeter, it looks fantastic .
A few things to note:
-ghosting. There is some. I'm getting used to it.
-viewing angles: Not sure about the claimed 178 degrees viewing angle. You have to position yourself dead straight to the screen to see unaffected image. My second monitor is an LG IPS with the same 178 degrees, and is very different (like much better when viewing at angles / from sides.) I think maybe because of the effect the etched glass has, acting as subtle but present light diffuser, messing things like contrast when viewing from the sides. I guess the pro 20 might be subject to the same issue, but IDK.
and that brings me to my last point:
- there is parallax, but since I have to position myself very straight looking at the screen when drawing / painting anyway, because of the above mentioned issue, I do not notice the parallax. It does not bother me at all. I get perfect cursor placement every time.
To put things in context:
I bought the larger 20 because I like do draw and paint broader strokes coming from my shoulders/elbows. I rarely have my face close to the tablet surface, looking at the cursor sideways - the only cause for parallax becoming an issue. Please note that I also have my tablet mounted to an ergotron arm, very stable, it allows me to draw sitting, standing, put it on my lap, have it hovering above my keyboard eye level... I think that this kind of ergonomics matter more than the effects of parallax, especially if you are using it for extended sessions. I'd save the money for said arm, instead of getting the pro. That and color gamut/fidelity/neutrality (and I could test that for my display, so the non pro 20 is good here).
Tl;dr - get the non pro - specially if the difference in price means being able to get some stable arm to mount your tablet.
Ps1 - The arm I'm using is an ergotron LX sit/stand HD, bought second hand for US$60. Bargain! If you are not able to source one of those, try:
amazonbasics monitor arm - It is mostly a black ergotron. Pretty similar to mine.
Thank you! I used the Amazon Basics mount and had for about almost a year I love it. Here’s link
AmazonBasics Premium Single Monitor Stand - Lift Engine Arm Mount
It's $116 but often goes on sale for $100. I've read a lot of good things about it. It's supposed to essentially be a rebranded Ergotron (one of the best monitor arm manufacturers). It's made by Ergotron for Amazon and is very similar to the Ergotron – LX Desk Monitor Arm (which goes for significantly more at ~$187) and is available in all black which I really like.
Amazon Basics Monitor Arm $116 - I use it for my AW3418 32"
I’m using two different mounts. I’ve used an amazon basics adjustable shock mount for the 34” for a while. When I added the upper monitor I purchased a vivo extra tall mount.
Here are links to the two mounts that I have.
is it this bracket https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Premium-Single-Monitor-Stand/dp/B00MIBN16O/ref=sr_1_1?crid=2E0JT919AOYU3&dchild=1&keywords=monitor+mount+amazon+basics&qid=1586473093&sprefix=monitor+mount%2Caps%2C173&sr=8-1?
Amazon Basics Mount
I'm really happy with the Amazon Basics arm I have for my desk. It extends out about 25-26 inches (63cm) and is nice and sturdy. I have a 31" monitor on it.
I have THIS Amazon Basics Monitor Arm holding up my AW3418DW
It's been absolutely fantastic so far! Could NEVER go back to a a desktop monitor stand after usin this thing!
I have the same monitor and bought this arm off amazon for $99. It's amazon basic but I'm certain the actual OEM is top notch (don't know who it is right now but a quick search will prob tell you).
Easy to set up, works great and is black so it should go with your desk. Only issue might be where you'll clamp the arm to the desk. My desk has a "hole" on the right side for cables and I used that to clamp the arm.
Hope this is useful my man! Great setup!
I think OP has the Amazon Basics one, which I also have for my Asus PG348Q. Would absolutely recommend, great mount! Can also be screwed into the table, rather than clamped.
Here is the link to the Amazon page. It's been really good so far.
just checked through my Amazon history and yes that's the one I got.
The Monitor has such a weird VESA mounting bracket that it will tilt down. I just used the allen wrench and tightened down the tension bracket alot and it held fine. I used it for about 2 years with no issues after that.
The one I have says it’s good for 25lbs
monitor is the aw3418dw with Amazon basics monitor arm
I'm using a Cintiq Pro 24 on an Amazon Basics monitor arm.
(I also have an Ergotron arm and the two are virtually identical in function. The Amazon one is just $50 less.)
In my case, I drilled a hole through my table for the arm to mount through. Personally, I think this is a much more stable mounting solution as opposed to clamping it to the edge of the desk.
There is a dual monitor version of this arm available from Amazon as well. Though I cannot personally comment on how well it would work with a Cintiq. I use a dual arm at work just fine, but that's just a pair of 10 pound monitors, way less than the ~30 of a Cinitq.
Thanks! Do you have a link please? I have seen this one [link]
Here you go: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00MIBN16O/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Expensive but the only one I found that works well.
Your monitor is right on the edge of the weight limit for the Amazon Basics Premium Arm.
this is mine.
says 32 but people have used it for their lg 34 curved as well.
so long as it supports 20 pounds, i think you're fine but i bought a wali gas spring that supposedly support 20 pounds and it did not work. ended up with this spring system(25lb weight limit.)
yaeh its these one!
my desk is probably just as thick as mdf cardboard but its pretty rugged
i also bought a cheap gas one for "£25 to compare for my 27" monitor
This is the popular one
it will hold it fine, monitor only weight is ~16lbs, stand weighs like 10lbs on its own :/
For the ultrawide: AmazonBasics Premium Single 32 Inch Monitor Stand - Lift Engine Arm Mount, Aluminum [link]
For my secondary: VIVO Single LCD Monitor Desk Mount Stand Fully Adjustable/Tilt/Articulating for 1 Screen 13" to 27" (STAND-V001) [link]
Correct! They are these monitor arms with these L-brackets.
I have one of these holding up a 6.5kg monitor.
If you don't mind the Bezos branding, it's quite decent.
Amazon makes their own version of an Ergotron arm for $100US. Should work with a 22HD if it has a VESA mount. Warning: it does jiggle a bit when you draw on the tablet in mid-air, unless you have a really light touch, same goes for all the monitor arms of this design.
See this thread for more info on the jiggle:
Will this hold it? It is supposed to work with the 34" Dell Ultrawide
Did u find any? I am looking for one too
If Dell offers it, then it might be the only option for you, since pretty much every stand has a 25-30 lbs limit for single monitor
I personally have the amazon basic one for my AlienWare AW3418DW
Pretty satisfied with it, but you can tell that it is holding its maximum weight.
EDIT: Or you could use a dual monitor stand, and use both arms united as one with a kind of rail connecting them together, but still, even then you'd be having a 40-45 LBS maximum weight
It's not mounted, but the arm is here:
I fidget at the desk so personally prefer that it articulates and moves for me.
AmazonBasics Premium Single... [link] - there’s the link. Sorry I didn’t include it in the first reply lol
I use the $100 amazon basics arm and it’s amazingly well built. Love it.
EDIT: link - [link]
this is the one i have
My AW will be one-year old next week (they grow up so fast! :p) -- been OC'd to 120hz since day one -- no issues at all.
2 choices for monitor arms:
Ergotech Freedom Arm, Single Heavy Duty (HD)
I meant this kind of stand. It changes everything !
yes, very very likely this one:
Thanks bro! https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Premium-Single-Monitor-Stand/dp/B00MIBN16O/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1544084612&sr=8-5&keywords=amazon+basic+monitor+stand
I have one of these AmazonBasics jobs for the monitor on the right, and the name brand two monitor equivalent for the two center ones.
The AmazonBasics one is 99.99% identical to the Ergotron arms, except for the paint and price.
The dual arms for the center monitors aren't necessary, I could've gone with a much cheaper stand that wasn't as flexible. The monitors are too big to really maneuver even with the arms.
The Amazon Basics stand is able to hold my AW3418DW (which weighs 16 lbs without the stand). It's rated for up to 25 lbs, and is supposedly made by Ergotron (it's just cheaper).
I'm using the AmazonBasics single monitor stand with my AW3418DW. You have to remember to tightened the tension bolts or it doesn't like to stay in one place, but it does great for minimizing desktop space compared to the included stand.
I'm using Amazon's $99 arm, which is basically a rebranded Freedom. I got it for ~$80 during one of their store-wide sales.
this bad boy is all you'll need
I have a Z35P with this.
I'm using this arm with mine...
it works great.
I recommend the Amazon Basics Arm. I use it for my Dell U3415W and it works and looks great.
Amazon basic monitor arm should handle 32"
PS. I have dual monitor arms - totally enjoy it
No problem, friend. The one i bought was easy to set up and has been no problem since. My amazon gives me this link: AmazonBasics Single Monitor Display Mounting Arm [link]
A cheap upgrade could be a riser for your monitor? Ikea Riser With Drawers
Or perhaps a monitor arm riser
Perhaps an under-the-desk headphone mount?
Those are 3 cheap little upgrades. Speakers may be down the road for you depending on your preferences! Looks great so far!
i had a u3415w on the amazon basics monitor arm and it was very sturdy
I read this one's pretty good. I plan to get one for my 22HD
I just ordered this one: AmazonBasics Premium Single Monitor Stand - Lift Engine Arm Mount, Aluminum [link]
They're supposed to be awesome.
A few people are using the Amazon basics arm from what I've seen. Not sure if it's the best choice, but it works fine as far as I know.
Edit: This one [link]
I agree, the stand is crazy and huge. The aw is vesa compatible and I have it mounted to this. I got this specific arm because it met the weight requirement for the z35p (which is much heavier), there should be cheaper options that work. Here are some pics of my setup.
That's an excellent point, and I apologize for calling your previous comment "nonsense".
The last couple of Windows 10 releases have added some really nice high-DPI support including mixed-DPI monitors, however it takes some work by application developers to add the per-monitor DPI awareness to their apps.
But there is an easy solution: if you use a second monitor alongside your ThinkPad display, get one with similar DPI. Then you can set both displays to the same DPI and avoid any mixed-DPI issues.
24" 4K (UHD) monitors are a sweet spot: the DPI is close enough that you can use the same scaling as a high-DPI ThinkPad display, and they are practical to use in portrait mode alongside the laptop display with a suitable pivot stand or monitor arm. I have a ViewSonic 24" 4K/UHD mounted on an AmazonBasics (Ergotron) arm. Portrait mode is a great setup if you ever have to read long documents, PDF files, and the like.
At the moment, Amazon has the LG 24UD58-B 24-inch 4K for $247 right now. (It's usually been more like $300-325.) I haven't used that specific monitor, but it's the same size and resolution as my ViewSonic.
I've been really happy with the combination of a high DPI ThinkPad or MacBook and a high DPI portrait mode monitor alongside it.
There's also the AmazonBasics Premium Single Monitor Stand which can support up to 25 lbs, your monitor says '24.60 lbs. w/o stand'
I picked up this arm via amazon warehouse. I think that covers exactly what you want but I am unsure about the far side of the monitor.
Here is a photo of my setup when sitting I lower the monitor a bit so you cant see much of the arm.
Here's the stand I'm using. [link]

You should see if that drawing tablet she has supports an ergonomic arm like this: [link] Could be a cool gift to get her if she doesn't take it all over the place.

Literally the only way to go IMO. I've got an x34 on mine and it's gorgeous.
I'm using the Amazon Basics Ergotron rebrand for my 34U100. It has held up so far, the gas struts are adjustable.
2x of these Amazon Monitor Arm Mounts placed in the corner grommets on my desk.
I did this for my citiq companion, which should work for the intuous 3 (that's the 8" tall one, right?)
I have the amazon version of the ergotron arm (it's cheaper) with an extension made by ergotron so it's long enough to drop down to my lap.
I use this and it's pretty awesome
Check out the AmazonBasics arm
It extends 64cm. You can also add the Ergotron extension to it for more reach if you like.
Are we talking a combo like these two? An extension like that is a good idea. Any chance you have a pic of the setup? Also, does the Amazon arm seem like it's good quality? It's pretty expensive compared to some other arms.
This is what I use AmazonBasics Single Monitor Display Mounting Arm [link]
I don't have an x34 but there's reviews of proper using it with 34 ultra wide.
I'm using this for my dell: [link]
Works great been using it for over 6 months no issues yet but yea my desk is wood also. However i've seen people with dual mounts on glass desks before so it is possible.
my setup: [link]
You could move your monitor to the side when not using it. That's if the computer tower is not on the desk but below it.
An arm like this would help: [link]
It's a 27 inch. I think Acer G276HL.
The mount is an Amazon Basics desk mount: [link]
Amazon Basics also sells a single arm for $99.00 that is similar(I think its the same maker) to the ergotron. But that dual for $99 looks like a sweet deal.
I would agree except I've seen videos of this monitor stand and it is less functional than the Amazon basics monitor stand which is only $100. They're so full of crap to try charging $1000 lol
This one has such great reviews, but is a little more expensive. I'm looking to buy one as well: [link]
First result for monitor arm on google: [link]
With a rolex you're paying for quality. It's a put together by hand and made up of hundreds of tiny moving parts, of course it's expensive. This is a fucking monitor stand. They mass produce these things and it's made up of like 10 parts (if that), there is no justification for it costing what it does. Not only that, it's less functional than other stands which are 10x cheaper. If I started selling regular No.2 pencils for $100 a box could I justify it by saying "well, you're not the target market"? That's what's happening here. Just a regular old monitor stand with nothing special about it being sold for way too much. If it was a super special monitor stand with all the bells a whistles AND was hand assembled MAYBE I could see it costing this much but short of that or it being made of solid silver I can't find a legitimate justification.
