I recently picked up a X-Star DP2710 and while I absolutely love the panel, the stand is beyond poor - it actually shipped broken! Not a problem, I've temporarily got it ghetto rigged nicely, and had already planned to pick up a proper stand for it anyway.

Except... it is a problem after all. Little did I know at the time just how hard it is to find a freestanding VESA mount stand which supports 27+ inch monitors.

Now, I do understand that if you are just using landscape mode, and don't care about the monitor sitting low to the desk, you can get away with a 27 inch panel on a stand that officially only supports 22 or 24 inches. I however would like to have the full range of adjustments at my disposal if I'm going to go through the trouble of actually replacing the stand.


In other words, I want something with easy height, tilt, pivot, and rotate adjustments, which fully supports 27-30 inch monitors, stands freely on it's own (does not mount to a wall or clamp to the side of a desk) and doesn't have an absurdly huge footprint. Bonus points if it isn't some kind of ugly matte plastic beveled ring with "silver" paint on it (you know exactly what I'm talking about).

I also wouldn't be adverse to a multi-monitor stand, so long as it still has all the adjustments. It does however need to be free standing without taking up a ton of desk space, and the few freestanding multi-monitor stands I've found all have footprints larger than the monitors they are holding!

I did find the Ergotron "Neo-Flex Medium LCD Stand", and while it has all the features I'd like, it is quite expensive and butt ugly.

Are there any better/cheaper alternatives? I know I can go cheaper with something from monoprice, but having to unscrew a bunch of joins and then screw them back in just to make simple adjustments is absurd.

I'd really like to keep the price under, say, $50 USD if possible, but I can stretch if there is something that is actually worth the premium.
