with an average of
its the ACER Predetor X34. This is the mount I use
I have the same model albeit the HW variant. This arm has been on my mind for a long time and should have no problem holding the aw34. What some other people use is the amazon basics arm, but I think the ergotech looks better and its over $20 cheaper.
I have two monitors and still debating on how I want to mount the second one so have still yet to commit on a purchase.
Trying to decide between that one and the Ergotech one:[link]
Now that it's about $40 cheaper, I'm leaning towards the Ergotech. Is there any reason not to go with it? I like the fact that the amaozn one is all black, but that's not really worth $40 IMO
It’s tough to find ones specifically for an UW and a second monitor, so I would say look for weight limits and make sure you aren’t exceeding their capacity. I know my dad is going with one of these bad boys for his new UW:
Ergotech Freedom Arm, Single Heavy Duty (HD) Aluminum Monitor Arm, Holds Monitor Weighing 20-30 lbs. Monitor with Desk Clamp Mount - Silver [link]
It’s the heavy duty one so it’ll definitely hold almost any large monitor you can throw at it.
This Ergotech Arm holds a max of 30lbs (your monitor weighs about 26lbs), has the 100x100 VESA mount you'll need for your Samsung, and has all the motion you could ever need. Hopefully this helps you :D
Ergotech Freedom Arm $76.20 at time of post.
There's also the Ergotech Freedom Arm HD. I have the non-HD and it works good. I also have the HD which I attached a crossbar to for 2x 27" monitors. The arm holds the weight perfectly but the tilt plate sags a little. I'm sure it would support a single monitor just fine though. Buyers are saying that it supports the 27" iMac which is 30lbs.
I've had issues with ikea desks like the one you posted. Although it was with triple monitors instead of 1 ultrawide, it basically broke a hole in the desk. I was able to ghetto-rig the desk with these plates of steel but in hindsight, that was an expensive, labor-intensive, and ugly solution.
As for mounting the monitor, I have gone through a couple arms that just weren't strong enough. I was so impressed with this arm:
that I actually left a review (something I have never bothered doing before or even since). It looks to be cheaper now than when I got it.
There is lots on amazon that people use, I used an ErgoTech, the amazon basic one works pretty good.
This is what i used for my alienware 34" no complaints whatsoever
I have my 34" ultra on one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Ergotech-Freedom-Aluminum-Monitor-Weighing/dp/B00FE2NVV4/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1543453020&sr=8-13
I've been pretty happy with it. Better than any other gas-spring arm I've purchased. I still wouldn't put multiple monitors on it though.
For the ultra wide Ergotech Freedom Arm [link]
Just some standard arm for the 27” on the left.
This is the one I currently have and it's quite lovely.
Make sure to check the weight rating for your monitor though. The linked one is tension loaded so if you put a <20lb monitor on it (the arm is for 20-30lbs) you may run into issues.
Edit: Also do yourself a favor and have a buddy for mounting an UW monitor. It's so much easier.
I'm using the Ergotech Freedom Arm HD with my x34 with the grommet mount. Its worked well for me. Some say the non HD mount is fine or better but I have no complaints.
Oh lol sorry, I have used 2. I initially used this one but the i realized i wanted a stacking 2 monitor setup, but now i use this one instead with a 4k on top.
I have this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FE2NVV4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
This one may works for you.
Ergotech Freedom Arm HD (FDM-HD-S01)
Someone even use this stand to hold Acer 38inch monitor without any problem. It can hold 20-30.8lbs.
Ok so my fault that is the lighter one. This is the one I purchased back in September of 2017.
They're pretty beefy arms, so the monitors need to be heavy.
It's the Ergotech Freedom Arm HD. It's only a little wobbly because my desk isn't the sturdiest, but I feel confident hanging my x34 from it.
The arm is working great so far. I needed something that supports the weight of the PG348Q (~24lbs), options were limited.
This one and no issues, best arm I've used yet.
Yeah I'm in SG.
It's two of these
Good luck. I bought this and I have not looked back.
VESA mounts are just referring to the type of standardized mount on the back of monitors. How a manufacturer decides to use that mount leads to products like clamping monitor arms or multiple monitor stands or simply just stand replacements.
I can't seem to find any mounts with a weighted stand to use for a monitor arm.
Here's an example of how a clamp might work on a desk. There shouldn't be any damage to the desk.
Two of these
But put two arms on a single base. There isn't any flex though. The arms are completely maxed out.
But I put both arms on to a single base.
Nice! I have the same monitor and suggest to get an arm for it. The stand simply takes up too much desk space. This is the one that is suggested.
Will this (Ergotech Freedom Arm HD) monitor arm be able to handle the weight of this (ASUS pg348q) monitor?
I'm going to give them a try. I found them on amazon (from the vender) for $79.98 a pop... looks like they already started to raise the price back up. [link]
My old ergotron monitor arm couldn't hold up Dell U3415W ultra wide. I had to upgrade for a stronger arm meant for small hdtv.
