Suggestions for a Triple Monitor Desk Mount

Title says it all really.. it looks like I will be workin from home for the foreseeable future and would love to reclaim some desk space!

I have 3 25” monitors that I would like to put on a mount, which attaches to the desk preferably with a clamp mount. The few I have found are in the $200+ market and have all the bells and whistles… I don’t need them.. I’m looking for a simple solution budget friendly, set once and it won’t move, solution.

Anyone have a recommendation?

    I have a single mount for 3 monitors - https://www.dropbox.com/s/ik5du12qkdze1kq/2021-07-26%2010.04... - Excuse the mess a little bit on my desk. Another photo with 3 other monitors for my sister who works from my house when VIC isn't in lockdown - https://www.dropbox.com/s/zzumjpfg01shmir/2021-07-07%2017.31... & https://www.dropbox.com/s/hclpxahhg2a6uqz/2021-07-07%2017.34...

    It was about $150 on eBay for the mount. Work bought them a few years ago because we wanted to reclaim some desk space as well then I when I moved to WFH permanently, I set it all up at home.

    I currently run 24" monitors but just bought some 27" new ones yesterday. I plan to use the same stand.

    Definitely makes the monitors higher and it creates more desktop space for your crap…… as you can see on mine. But definitely worth it!

      Jesus, thats a set up and a half there, even a CB radio !!!!

      Nice setup! That's a lot of screen real estate! (Cheeky Olympics in the background too!)

    •  

      I like it! Got a link or a photo of the mount at the rear?

    I have the one below. There's a bit bounce if you touch the monitors, but does what it says on the box.

    I have this one for two 27" monitors:

    I liked it so much I bought another for two 24" monitors in another room. Easy to fit and solid. No bounce, adjustable height and lots more desk space. I haven't tried their three-monitor arm.

      Thanks for the link, it looks like the triple is cheaper than the double… I’ll investigate

    What about 3x single monitor arms?

    Spreads out the weight load, and also gives flexibility for placement and if you move monitors around later. $40-$50 each for gas lift ones, or even less for simpler designs if you don't want them to be mobile

      This was my fist thought and will be my fall back

  •  

    I just built a wooden stand and use 3x screens each on their own factory leg.

    I'd have thought 200 was budget friendly for something to hold hundreds of $$ of screens stable.

    •  

      There is probably only 300 worth of screens there.. I don’t want to spent the same amount on a mount

  •  

    I've got a Aavara AV-DS300 triple monitor stand with 3 x 22". I don't like it as the two outside arms have sagged and the monitors tilt forward which I can't adjust. I've been looking at 3 x gas lift single monitor arms to replace it.

    The few I have found are in the $200+ market and have all the bells and whistles…

    How much are you expecting to pay? You won't get much cheaper than that for a triple mount. Maybe around $150? You can get 3 x single mounts for $50 each which I would always prefer due to flexibility.

    •  

      Flexibility isn’t something I need. I’ve had my current alignment since I plugged it all together. Honestly I was thinking $100

  •  

    I have a 4 monitor set up (2 singles and a dual) and to be honest I would recommend a combination of a single and a dual

    Make sure your desk can support all that weight on a single mount, so something like this doesn't happen :)

      Yup… happened to me. I had to slip a bit of board between the desk surface and the mount clamp to distribute the load. Seems to be holding but now there's a big hole in the top and bottom of my desk

    •  

      Well…. That changes a few things!

      I didn’t even think about this…

    I often point to Selby, but I do not work there, I have been on a DSP for 23 years, I just love that site & get everything there (that is when I have any money to spend, but they sell cables too)
