Sharkoon Monitor Stand PURE & POWER

Sharkoon Technologies is an international supplier of PC components and peripherals, offering performance at a reasonable price. Sharkoon now presents its new monitor stands, which are available in two versions: the PURE and the POWER. At first glance, both versions appear the same. A closer look, however, reveals their differences in features: The PURE version creates extra storage space available under the monitor, while, in addition to this, the POWER version also offers a USB hub and a wireless charging station.
More Space on the Desk
Both the Monitor Stand PURE and the Monitor Stand POWER support an ergonomic sitting position by raising the screen. In addition, the monitor stands provide extra storage room on top of the desk. Thus, underneath the raised monitor, peripherals will find newly gained space measuring 440 x 190 x 46 millimeters, where keyboards can also find a home.

Wireless Charging with the Monitor Stand POWER
With the Monitor Stand POWER, compatible devices can be conveniently and easily charged using the integrated wireless charging station. This is a contact surface on the top, right-hand side of the monitor stand, where the device is simply placed for charging. The device could be a wireless mouse (like the Sharkoon SKILLER SGM3) or a smartphone, for example. The charging occurs with an output power of five watts maximum.

Steady and Stable Screen Raiser
For a firm and steady hold, both versions of the monitor stand have been made of steel with a thickness of 1.3 millimeters and can therefore support larger devices with a weight of up to 20 kilograms without difficulty. In addition, the nonslip feet on the underside contribute to the overall stability of the monitor stands.

Connections Always within Reach: Monitor Stand POWER
In contrast to the Monitor Stand PURE, up to four USB devices or four flash drives can be plugged into the Monitor Stand POWER for operation. A 100-centimeter-long cable connects the integrated USB hub to a USB 3.0 port on the PC. Having to inconveniently search for available ports on the host computer thus becomes unnecessary.

Price and Availability
Both the Sharkoon Monitor Stand PURE and the POWER are now available. The suggested manufacturer's price in Europe for the PURE version is 19.99 euros and for the POWER version, 44.99 euros.

this is WAY better than a $1000 stand that can only do tilts, twirl & swing.

Who in their right mind would put a monitor on an additional stand? The center of a screen should be a bit below Your horizontal line of sight.

So there should be a V2 of this already with adjustable feet ?.

@AsRock I'm talking about Apple's monitor stand... not the Retina monitor that cost $5k.

Actually this looks hella cool, especially the powered version. I hate when I need to put an USB drive or something since my PC is on the floor and not even next to me.

- You can push your keyboard under a stand = free desk space created easily
- You can enhance cable management on the desk. My mouse and K/B cabling goes underneath the stand, instead of being everywhere
- Not all monitors have a decent stand, or even adjustable in the first place
- Even with adjustable stand, seating position can still be far above the ideal POV.
- Monitor feet don't cover the whole stand, so you also have some elevated desk space for, stuff. Like a phone. Kinda segments your desk space a bit, which is nice.

Its not new. I got a wooden IKEA stand, and its a real improvement over not having one, EVEN with a decent monitor stand that can adjust high enough - I prefer using the stand to do that. And this Sharkoon is also not prohibitively expensive, pretty decent product IMO. Although you could question the USB one, because that markup is silly for a few ports.

@AsRock for 5 grand, I think it'll be slightly better in every aspect, while includes a dope stand as standard (obviously).

Even worse it can't RGB for the (Apple) World. For 1000$ that's criminal. Apple should develop proprietary LEDs. :D

RGB LEDs are too much even for Apple's standards.

I did my own stand with 15€.
1x wood plank. 80x23cm
4x adjustable furniture feets.
16 screws.
I just need to do some painting and gadget setup ( usb hub attach with a usb extension, Micro-Headphones extension, and a LED stripe on the back)
The problem with current market desktop stand of this kind, it doesn't has the width enough to fit a full size keyboard ( Steelseries Apex RAW ).
Maybe I should make my own company and sell these stands, even at my work they needed it.
Mounting Stands with an attach/fixing to table is not a long term solution.
