- First, the side monitors don't have very much adjustment, so you can't bring them in closer to you if you want to, I guess I like my monitors more angled than most people, before I had them each at about a 45 degree angle from my middle monitor so they followed the curve of my desk. I couldn't do this with the stand, I have them at the biggest angle I could get, which is only about 20 degrees.
- Second, the base is HUGE. It measures 13 inches back to front and 12.5 side to side. Nearly all of the base sits behind the monitors, so make sure you have room for it.
- Last, the lowest setting puts the monitors about 6.25 inches off the desk. This really isn't a huge downside, except that I had planned on using a riser under the stand to free up some desk space for storing odds and end, but with the hight, a riser puts them way too high. The height is locked in via 2 pins through the pole mounted to the base, and I have heard of people drilling hole lower on the pole to be able to lower the screens, but it wasn't that big of a deal for me, so I left them.
I hope this helps. Really, for the price, it is unbeatable. Anyway, here are some pics of my setup...

Here's a couple picks of that monitor stand...

And finally, what's on the other side of my desk...
Not exactly what my current setup is, I have three of the same monitors now and all plugged in.
I need then to be a bit higher (without using CD cases.
) so I can get some speakers. Actually was looking at these,
and they look similar to some of yours, WonderMutt, are they? If so are they decent for what you get? Not an audiophile, but I do want a sub. (Before you guys suggest it, I do not have $200 to drop on speakers, nor would I if I did.) Also looked at these
. Anybody ever use them?Really need to work on my cable management..Edited by Evenger14 - 7/1/12 at 4:29pm
