When the flat screen monitor came about, the desktop monitor mount followed. This was necessary for everyone to be able to take full advantage of the slimmer and lighter design of the new type of monitor compared to the old, bulky, and heavy CRT type of monitors.
The Advantages of Having the Right Monitor Stand
A standard base comes with any flat screen TV or desktop monitor when you buy one to enable you to put in on any flat surface like a table. The adjustable monitor stand is much more than just luxury; it is a necessity. This replaces the generic stand and it offers more adjustments to ensure the comfort of the user. It is possible for you to adjust the height, positioning, and the angle of the monitor. The monitor stand is meant to accommodate all the needs and preferences of the user. The most suitable monitor stand is one that is ergonomically sound for gaming or for your work. This helps you avoid back pain, neck pain, and all other body pains associated with bad posture.
Whatever style or features your monitor has, the first benefit it can provide is that it can free up a lot of space. This enables you to do several varying tasks like gaming and watching videos or working on a report.
Types of Monitor Stands
Freestanding is the monitor stand that does not need clamping or drilling. This is stable and easy to move around on the desk surface.
Articulating mounts are meant for single mounting and for multiple mounting. It is not fixed; hence it allows for more positioning. It can easily be positioned with the use of a hinge or a pivot.
Single bracket stands on the other hand are intended for single screens that only require a single mount.
The monitor riser is the elevated stand that uses only limited space. It essentially makes your screen float which enables you to have more space underneath.
Monitor bases can be mounted on a wall, a clamp, or a grommet, or it can be freestanding with the help of a balanced base.
