    Are you using all four monitors off the same card? Are they in the same display group, or is it a 3+1 setup?

    can only have 3 at a time(2 dvis, 1 hdmi, 1 dp). generally i switch to the tv when i am watching a movie or playing a game. i also extend to the tv for watching videos while working.
    most days i actually have eyefinity off, and just run 3x1 extended with the monitors. i never include the tv in eyefinity.
    i am only using 1 card atm, and have another in an htpc in the bedroom i can add for xfire if necessary.

    So I got one and it arrived today. I will try and get pics up tomorrow once I have enough light in the room. But here are some pros and cons for anyone interested:

    Pros:
    Cheap - $89 plus shipping, mine was $105ish shipped.
    Sturdy and well made, seems to be powder coated.
    Adjusts very easy at the monitor for rotating or pivoting.
    Adjusts easily side to side with a lever locking mechanism.
    Took less than an hour to put together including mounting the monitors. Very easy to follow instructions with very little assembly.
    Comes with all the necessary hardware.
    Easily excepts large monitors. It states up to 28 inch monitors and you could probably go with 30 inch assuming the weight of the three monitors is within in limits.
    Easily attaches to the desk.

    Cons:
    First thing I noticed was that it isn't angled on the side monitors much, probably 15 degrees, but after running a Heaven benchmark it looks like it is adequate, but some may want more of a cockpit feel with greater side angle.
    Be prepared to do your own wire management on the arms. It has a hole in the main tube that allows for cables to come through and then two clips for the cables. You then have two wire ties and this all works, but I ended up using my own wire ties to make it look cleaner.

    If the sides were adjustable this would probably be the best triple monitor mount for the money and I would argue it still is. To get side adjustable monitor mounts for different angles you have to step up to the $350 range. This cleaned up my desk and makes it very easy for me to switch between landscape and portrait modes. I am very happy with my purchase and I definitely would recommend it if you are on a budget.

    Again, I will post some pics tomorrow when I have the time and better lighting.

    Thanks for the pics, Buddy. It definitely does not wrap around as much as I would hope. I have two questions for you:

    1. Is the whole assembly height adjustable? From the link you provided the monitors looked like they would be rather high off the desk, but if it's adjustable it would obviously be better.

    2. How much space is required for the clamp to fit over the edge of the desk?

    make that three questions:

    3. Does it seem possible that you could bend the horizontal bar on the back to allow for more of a wrap-around effect?

    BTW, if those pics are with "more light," I'd hate to see what they would have been like if you didn't wait... :laugh:

    1 - Yes in steps. I am going to rotate the monitors to portrait mode and then lower it. But it does have some adjustment for height.

    2 - I believe 3"-4" deep.

    3 - That bar, while hollow, is not going to bend, not unless you run it over with a car.

    Yeah, I lost my computer room to my kids and so I had to move into my computer into the Home Theater room which was designed to be extremely dark. The walls are painted a dark blue so to absorb the light and the windows have blinds, shades and thick curtains. Great for watching a movie, even in the middle of the day, but sucks for taking pictures.

    Here is a simple mod I did to get more of an angle out of the mount. It's a 2" x 4" x 4" piece of wood in between the mount and LCD with 2" M4 screws.

    Now you just need to paint it black to blend in...

    Just upgraded to a single 7970 (for now ;) ) and the Eyefinity seemed easier to setup. Somewhat disappointed that the second DVI port is gone, but for the moment I am using the HDMI to DVI adapter for the second screen.

    Do you have tearing via HDMI-DVI on the screen?

    I just got the system up and running this morning. I had it running for about 15-20 minutes while I checked my email and stuff. I haven't even had time to run a bench on it...

    I ran 3DMVantage on it and saw some minor lines on the score overlay at the bottom of the screen on both the HDMI to DVI adapter and my Accell mini-DP to DVI active adapter, but not on the straight DVI cable.
