Monitor Stands.

Posted 16 December 2011 - 05:23 AM

Don't flame the noob pl0x. I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but move the thread if it isn't

Anyone know where I can get a somewhat cheap customizable 3 monitor stand? Needs to support up to 24". Preferably bolt in, but normal stand will do.

Since I don't know what "cheap" is, I would suggest shopping.google.com.

My multi-monitor arms came from Ergotron.com

5 monitors (3 on arms, 2 on their own stands)

You'll like having the room to let Visual Studio spread out.

But even Best Buy has TV mounting arms.

I've got one of these bad boys for my paired 24" monitors and it works outstandingly well:

I recall seeing one that held up to 6 monitors I believe. I know I saw one that held 4.

And there it is.

I had simply pulled the link from my previous Amazon order. Nice find.

I'll admit that's nice for a display in a room but I have my doubts if your goal is a one person workstation.
I've learned through experience that if you want to look at all the real estate from your chair having a flat width of nearly 6 feet from edge to edge doesn't cut it.

If your goal is to use all three monitors from your chair as a single work station you really want to be able to curve the entire array much like a driving or flying simulator. Or picture a curved satellite dish with your chair in the position of the center transponder. This way the far edges of the end monitors and the center of the middle monitor are all approximately equidistant from your head.

I tried Google, found this.

It's perfect for me since I live in Australia.

Dude, I love your setup. Can't wait to run Visual Studio on my 24" monitor instead of my 15" laptop screen. AH THE FREEDOM!

How much did this one cost you? I'm trying to find one that you can take an arm off, because right now I only have one of my 24" screens.

Having at least one monitor in portrait mode is wonderful. Viewing webpages, Word documents, PDFs and most importantly, the Visual Studio code page in tall mode, with all the pallets on another monitor... Oh la la... It is so much more productive to not be constantly open/closing/moving pallets!

Haha, oh I can't wait! When I've got my full setup I'll have a somewhat powerful socket 2011 gaming/programming computer with 3 24" Samsung B2440L monitor, middle one will be portrait, left and right will be horizontal, so I can view documents, and do some programming on the middle one, and in C++ run a full-screen command prompt on the left or right monitor. i can't wait, hey. except the graphics card I'm getting only supports 2x DVI inputs, and the monitors I'm getting only support DVI/VGA, so I'll have to find a DVI -> HDMI converter somewhere, lol.
