Height adjustable (gas spring assisted) monitor mount £36 Sold by Kaiss-Vertrieb and Fulfilled by Amazon

Found 13th Jul
This is the cheapest height-adjustable monitor mount I could find (£36 inc delivery). The cheaper mounts just move in the horizontal plane whilst this also goes up and down using some kind of pneumatic spring. Of course it also tilts and allows rotation if that's what you're into. Max load is 6.5 Kg. I don't think this is a special offer so you've probably got plenty of time to think about whether you really want one.

Probably people not looking for monitor stands?

Hot from me. Gets good reviews, just a shame it only goes to 27" monitors.

Voted hot Op! Looks like a very nice piece of kit

I've got a similar gas spring one. They're great

People may not see it as a hot deal when it's not a deal.

Are the screw hole spacings different for larger monitors? Otherwise I think it would support any size of monitor provided that it's below 6.5 Kg and I guess most monitors above that size are heavier than that so they put that size limit there to stop people buying and returning them unnecessarily.

Maybe because it's not a popular item and it's a normal price to be honest

I previously got this one below from eBay and it is just about strong enough to support my 7.7kg 34" PG348Q ultrawide curved monitor once all the fixings are tightened properly.

Excellent build quality and only £18.04

The desk clamp on the eBay one looks a bit weak.
Does the eBay one also go through a hole in the desk?

Damn supported weight on that says 3kg. Was considering getting an arm for my x34 but for such an expensive monitor I really wouldn't want an arm collapsing breaking it. You're a more confident man than I if you're using that

If anyone else buys the eBay one, I'd be interested to know how they find it. eBay added reviews way too late IMO so unbranded products can be chancey because they seldom have reviews.

Normal price £39.95 according to camelcamelcamel ...

I've had my 7.7kg monitor mounted for 2.5 months now and it still hasn't collapsed!

Mine is clamped onto the back edge of my desk near the right side and the arm has been fully stretched to the left following the length of the back edge. The final hinge directly behind the monitor is twisted so that the monitor is suspended parallel to the back of the desk and directly above it.

This lets you position the monitor as close as possible to the back edge of the desk without mounting it on the wall and also keeps the area below the monitor clear.

The arm is very very sturdy and the gas spring is very strong and needs to be calibrated to the weight of the monitor. When I first owned the package the arm was folded onto itself held by packaging Velcro. Once it was removed it stretched out automatically. Folding it back onto itself really takes 7kg of pressure!

The mounting isn't usually different, they put the size of monitor to make sure the reach doesn't exceed the tensile strength of the extended arm.

I'm not sure that the size of the monitor is relevant to the tensile strength of the extended arm. All the information necessary is in the mass/weight of the monitor.

Do they come with screws to attach your monitor?

I ordered one but it's part of a larger order not yet ready for dispatch. When I get it I'll post again regarding the screws.

The ebay one I quoted came with several sets of screws to cater for different monitors.

Ugly, The better (looking) ones have a verticle pole then an arm attached to said pole and provide more space under your display and better/free mvmnt

Hold a brick in one hand against your body. It's fairly easy to hold because you can hold it close to your body and the fulcrum. If you then hold something that weighs the same that you can't get close to your body/fulcrum at arms length then the strain on your arm multiplies. It's the same for monitor arms.

Only if you're talking about the depth of the monitor. If you're talking about the diagonal size then it's irrelevant because the monitor is approximately symmetrical, putting is centre of gravity right in the middle.

But that's only if you're putting your mount where you want to put your monitor. As for myself I've always put my desks butting up against a wall and affixed my monitor mount on the back side corner, stretching out to the middle. Currently I also have a second monitor affixed to the same stand but on a second arm hanging over my pc as space is limited. If you're using a hydraulic arm and are just putting it dead centre of your monitor then you may as well just use the stand it came with.

You still don't understand but I can't be bothered since it doesn't affect anyone or anything.
