An arm to hold my flat screen 06 February 2009
This is great. A monitor arm that is clamped on the back of the table. It lets my flat screen fly over the table. I can move it easily, using one or both hands. That allows me to adjust the screen to a lot of positions.
When working on the computer, I move the screen in front of me, slightly reclined. Sometimes I turn it by 90 degrees, then my wide screen becomes a narrow screen. This can ease reading long text passages.
When doing paperwork, I simply push back the keyboard. Because there is no monitor stand, this gives enough room for both keyboard and a large folder. I can even continue to look on the screen, because it is flying above the desktop.
I really enjoy having more space on my worktable and the ergonomic comfort of a monitor arm. I recommend the Ergotron MX Desk Mount LCD Arm, it is robust and flexible. I assume it will survive a while, because its specifications allow me to upgrade to a larger screen later. (Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with Ergotron.)
