ive got 1 of these for my asus pg348q and its amazing. holds monitor perfectly still at all times and tons of range for moving the monitor around. not the cheapest option but worth the premium in my opinion. the not tall pole version is also cheaper, but i needed the extra height and like the extra range it provides.
What do you mean sag? Looks like both links point to the same mount, just that one isn't clamped to the desk.
I know it's likely not quite what you're looking for, but I have two of these which each hold an Asus PB279Q perfectly, I can move them to any position I want and it stays rock solid.
I have 2 of these, and then I ordered an additional arm for the third monitor. So 1 pole as 2 arms attached to it.
That's the pits. Best of luck to you. I really, really like this monitor arm
It's got enough range and maneuverability that hopefully it could bridge that distance between your eyeball height and your hand height.
Also, sounds like if you straighten out your arms, you'll probably have to bend at the wrist to type and use your mouse. My personal experience says that typing with a bend in your wrist will eventually hurt. Do what you gotta do I suppose, but watch out for contorting too much around the elbow injury.
I personally wouldn't recommend a Hackintosh unless you are willing to learn a little bit on your own, or have a friend who can help out. The problems with a prebuilt machine from a random entity are:
Returns may be a pain, unless he provides you with receipts and everything required for all manufacturer warranties. Even in these cases, you need to take out parts and handle the process yourself.
Updates can sometimes cause issues (not often, but they can) and if you don't have a rough understanding of things you could end up with a computer that isn't working and no idea how to fix it.
Applecare - with an iMac you have the option of a solid warranty, and you can basically just bring the computer to an apple store to get it fixed with very little frustration or questions. I'm not saying you need the applecare, but it is a nice option for many.
The resale value of an iMac will decrease over time, but it is still relatively easy to sell an iMac. Custom computers are much harder to sell, and often lose value much faster.
This build doesn't have thunderbolt, which is very handy over time.
This is obviously your decision, I just know from experience that I have had to extract data from my hackintosh, and reinstall everything because I managed to screw something up with an update. If I had purchased the computer it would have been frustrating to still end up doing al the work despite spending $300-400 extra to avoid it.
If you do go this route and want a monitor suggestion, I really love LG's 34UM95. It is a 34" 3440x1440 res monitor with great picture quality. You need to hook it up via display port or thunderbolt (this build has display port) to get the full res at 60hz, but it is definitely worth the money. I use mine with an ergotron LX monitor arm with the tall arm (see [link])
I've got a $200 mount, It holds a heavy 32" monitor perfectly still at any angle, and can be fully adjusted simply by moving the monitor.
It's worth it for me.
I have 2 LG 24UD58-B monitors. I am looking at this VESA mount:
would this be compatible? I think so because it is VESA?
Yeah I'd love to see some pics. I think I'm gonna go with this one for the taller pole.
I did not know that about the AmazonBasics ones, thanks! So I'm guessing if it says a monitor "size" that I can ignore that and it really just matters about the weight? I wonder how far these reach if I have it on the sides or back of the desk.
I was thinking of maybe this one below because it has a taller poll which might be good for me since I like mine a bit taller.
I agree. They'll probably buy the absolute best monitor mount you can get. Something like this:
Which is $200
I have that monitor and have it mounted on the Ergotron LX. It is set at the very top of the pole I use and pretty much extended all the way out and up. Its above my other two monitors. If you don't need it to be that high they make a shorter pole which is a little cheaper. Also, Amazon Basics sells one too that at least looks the exact same as the Ergotron and a little cheaper still. I can't tell you for sure that it is but I'd bet its the same one just painted black.
These arms are very sturdy and well made.
