Why would anyone take a perfectly good desktop stand for a computer and throw it away? After all, the stand was included with the computer monitor and replacing it with another option will cause additional expense.
It may seem like a small thing. But for me it meant more space and greater productivity. I use a treadmill desk with a decent size work area – but no matter how I positioned my monitors, using the space was cramped.
I decided to try the Chief K1D220B dual monitor arms clamped to my desk. My thought was this would free up the space otherwise consumed by the stock monitor stand. It worked better than expected. Not only have I gained desk space, but now with the tips of my fingers, I can position my monitors at the exact height, distance, and angle that works in any given moment. I am less fatigued at the end of the day from poor monitor placement and I no longer struggle to get everything positioned on my desk. As an added bonus, I can keep my blinds open longer throughout the day as the sun no longer washes out my monitors.
It may seem like a small thing, but after using these fully adjustable mounts, I don’t want to go back to old way. The next step is to put these on my traditional desk at work and home. After experiencing the difference of using adjustable monitor arms, I can’t foresee ever using conventional desktop stands again.
