Enjoying some great screen time begins with putting your computer relative to your body in an optimal position. This helps to keep your eyes, ears, and back from getting tense or strained. Monitor arms are useful units built to carry one or more displays in a manner that removes the need for continuous readjustment.
This article aims to illustrate some of today’s best monitor weapons on the market and how you can pick one.
Ergotron has been a popular ergonomic furniture manufacturer for three decades, with the LX Display Arm being one of the most famous products of the company. The LX arm helps you to change your screen’s height, width, and overall positioning. Additionally, you can adjust the arms according to your convenience.
This monitor arm features a rather elegant aluminum design that allows it to weigh a little more than many of the market’s other single monitor arm models. This monitor arm comes with ample longevity and is backed by a 10-year warranty by Ergotron.
Thanks to the available notebook tray attachment, the Ergotron LX can not only be used as a VESA display stand but can also be used to hold laptops. Also with up to 25-pound monitors measuring up to 34 inches, the arm itself is easy to transfer and remains in position well.
With 360 degrees of rotation and panning, the arms are also incredibly adjustable.
What We Like About Ergotron – LX Desk Monitor Arm
There is a range of reasons that could cause individuals to use a monitor arm. One could be the ability to switch the monitor exactly how you want along with the ergonomics (and convenience) which can be hard to give up. The desk space that is saved by getting the computer off the desk is invaluable for others. The Ergotron LX probably offers the characteristics you need no matter what your justification is for using a display arm.

You can install two monitors on the same base with the EVEO Premium Dual Monitor Mount and change them as much as you please. This monitor arm will match your desired configuration, whether you want your monitors to be side by side or vertically stacked.
Every arm has a standard VESA mount on the end that can be balanced for your enjoyment and is capable of both 75-75 and 100-100 versions. Perhaps more impressively, each arm will carry up to a monitor of 17.6 pounds and features various degrees of rotation and pivot.

If you’ve never used a multiple-monitor device before, then you’re missing out. The productivity increase is second to none, but if we’re honest, the real blessing is to be able to see YouTube or Discord while still being at the same time in a video game.

Ergotech’s Single Independence Arm will do it all, be it tilting, spinning, or panning the computer to suit your needs.
The process of installation is fairly easy, but a helping hand is required. The clamp suits all desks that are no thicker than 2.5 inches. You don’t need to drill any holes in your desk. The arm mount comes pre-assembled on its own. All you have to do is bring all the pieces together and just connect your desk to the base.
Besides, the arm flaunts quite a few pieces of metal, which not only ensures excellent longevity but also stability and safety. However, not for a 4K 40-inch display. You’ll need a stronger arm for this scale. The Single Freedom Arm can rotate 360 degrees in terms of versatility. For someone who likes to put their monitor in a portrait position, this is good news.
Also, you should turn your arm up to 90 degrees upwards and 45 degrees downwards. You can pan the wall mount monitor arm 180 degrees and raise it to 14 inches above the desk surface. Do not tighten the screws too much so that you do not restrict the joints.
What We Like About Ergotech Single Freedom Arm
The Freedom Arm is extremely easy to handle, thanks to its simple but elegant nature. Two neutral color variations are used on the arm: metal grey and silver. For nearly all monitors, the neutral colors make this arm a perfect pick. The whole package is pretty secure, so you don’t have to worry about your screen falling off.
The Single Freedom Arm, identical to the Ergotron LX Display Arm, vaunts your cables with a management system. The device avoids tangling and helps to keep your wires out of your sight. The weapon is placed on a small but stable base that does not take up a whole lot of room on the desk.

You should remember that the base is slightly angled, which limits you from placing anything on top of it but you don’t have to use it as shelving, anyway. Also, it requires at least two people to install this arm.

A dual monitor VESA desk mount that is very simple on the wallet is the most economical monitor arm on our list. Not only is this the cheapest option we are looking at, but also the highest-rated.
The VIVO dual monitor desk mount is built from robust steel and makes it easy to use and mount monitors. The arms adjust effortlessly and have an amazing amount of tilt, rotation, and swivel. But when it comes to the extension length, these arms can only reach around a foot after mounting the monitors.
It can support monitors up to 20Lbs and flaunts a long arm range. Along with having open top slot VESA plates, it also features a heavy-duty desk clamp. Moreover, the arm comes with a 3-year manufacturer warranty.
