Guide to Monitor Arms

Monitor Arm : What is it?

Monitor Arms

Monitor arms support computer monitors from a fixed position to provide stability. They are mainly designed for LCD and flat-screen monitors, which lack the desktop base found in older cathode-ray tube (CRT) monitors. They usually mount onto a fixed surface using metal brackets or screws. Some monitor arms have swivel joints that allow them to face different angles for easier viewing.

Choosing Monitor Arms (Buying tips)

Stability: Choose a monitor arm with a wide, steady mounting base. Make sure it attaches evenly to the surface and does not tilt or loosen with frequent adjustment. Square brackets are very stable and ideal for large, heavy monitors.

Choose a monitor arm that allows full distance and angle adjustment. Look for one that locks at specific positions for more convenient viewing. Make sure the joints are well-constructed and can withstand frequent adjusting.
