Multiple LCD Monitor Display Stands for Dual Flat Screen Setups

Multiple monitor display setups have become increasingly popular as studies continue to prove that larger monitors and increased flexibility with monitors can lead to improved productivity in the work place (Source: Productivity501.com, Apple.com 30 Inch Cinema Display Study).
This trend is also supported/magnified by the decreasing price of larger monitors overall and the widespread capabilities of even low priced graphics cards to support multi monitor setups. This post will not explain how to install a multiple monitor display setup, but rather take a look at some of the best rated dual, triple, and quad monitor stands that will help facilitate your setup. If you’d like to take a look at some great multi-monitor software that helps you get the most out of your setup, then we recommend you take a look at this article from LifeHacker.

Best Rated Multiple LCD Monitor Display Stands

Dual LCD Monitor Display Stand Setups 2011

Tyke Supply Dual LCD Monitor Stand desk clamp

This easy-to-install desk clamp from Tyke Supply provides you with complete double-link swing arms which optimize ergonomics and monitor views with separate tilt, rotate, side-to-side, height, and tension adjustments. It fits monitors up to 24 inches in size which are VESA mount compliant and up to 16 pounds each (75 x 75 mm / 100 x 100 mm).

Overall: You’ll be surprised just how easy this clamp is to install. Simply clamp it to the desk with two finger screws. At around $50 it’s the best value you’ll find; however, if you find that you need to adjust your setup often, then you may want to go with a model that is easier to adjust.

Planar 997-5253-00 Dual Monitor Stand

If you’re willing to spend a little more and would like something more mobile than a clamp, then consider the Planar 997-5253-00. Planar for years has made trusted medical monitor devices and has recently branched out to consumer displays. This particular display stand was released back in 2009 and has received nearly 5 star customer reviews from all major retailer websites. It supports monitors from 17-24 inches with a maximum capacity of 33 pounds per monitor. Although it’s unlikely you’ll find 2 LCD monitors that weigh in excess of 66 pounds together this shows how heavy duty this product truly is. This stand makes it easy to tilt (+/- 15°), swivel (+/-20° ), rotate (90° for landscape or portrait mode) and height adjust (up to 13 inches) your monitor to where you feel the most comfortable. Comes with a 3 year manufacturer parts and labor warranty.

Ergotron DS100 Dual-monitor Desk Stand

This well built dual monitor desk stand easily accommodates a dual flat panel monitor setup up to 24 inches and 62 pounds. It will work with 75 x 75 mm or 100 x 100 mm VESA compliant monitors.

Cable Organizer

The Ergotron DS100 comes with a cable system which organizes and routes your cables as well as a low-profile base which saves you additional desk space.

Triple LCD Monitor Flat Screen Stands

Let’s face it, sometimes dual monitors aren’t enough. A triple or quad stand display setup is ideal for graphic design, engineering, finance, and gaming (eyefinity technology).

Ergotron DS100 Triple-monitor Desk Stand

We’d recommend The Ergotron DS100 durable steel and aluminum constructed triple-monitor desk stand for triple display setups for up to 21 inch monitors. While the hole pattern 100 x 100 mm & 75 x 75 mm may allow for larger monitors, we feel you’re better off purchasing a different stand for larger setups. Comes with a 5 year parts and labor warranty.

Tyke Supply Triple LCD Monitor Stand up to 21″ Monitors

This Tyke supply triple stand, like the dual stand above, is easy to install and requires no drilling. It secures up to 3 21 inch monitors weighing up to 13 pounds a piece. 36″ double-link swing arms optimize ergonomics and monitor views with separate tilt, rotate, side-to-side, height, and tension adjustments.

Ergotech Triple Horizontal LCD Monitor Arm Desk Stand (100-D16-B03)

Technical details for the Ergotech 100-D16-B03 include VESA FDMI MIS-D 75, 100, 17-24 inch monitors – 25lbs per pivot weight capacity, and 20 degrees up and 10 degrees down (pivot). We feel it’s one of the best available for Eyefinity setups.

What one owner had to say about it:

“I ordered this stand after ordering and returning other products because they could not support three 23″ Samsung monitors. This one does with a little room to spare although at this size, there is some limit to the angular adjustment on the wing monitors. This setup provides adjustments for tip, tilt and height as well as the angle of the side/wing monitors. Plenty of adjustment for me.”

Multiple LCD Monitor Display Stands for Dual Flat Screen Setups — 1 Comment

  1. I’d really like some recommendations on mounts that could do any of the following:
    – Hold Apple 30″ Cinema Display rotated 90 degrees
    – Hold 2/3/4 30″ Cinema displays in conduction with a 27″ iMac (maybe with rotation options available?)

    I know those displays are very heavy, but it would be nice to be able to have more up and down space than just left/ right space.
