Personal preference really. I just prefer the Zowie and basic Dell stands and would rather avoid spending extra on a mount. The next Alienware stands are more basic too based on pro player feedback - or so I'm led to believe anyway.
They're really annoying unless you prefer to play with the monitor much further back that's all. This is one of the better Y stands because its flat so keyboard legs will usually be enough if needed, but it's still unnecessary in design.
Looking forward to your thoughts if you buy.
This. Many of us play with tilted keyboards and that protrusion with make it impossible have nice keyboard placement. But if it got VESA this doesnt matter.
