I recall seeing a post on the News (I think it was there) recently, in the past 6-12 months, on TPU about desk mounted monitor stands. I tried looking back through the news stories for a while, but I never found it. I should have bookmarked it.....anyway.

Does anyone have any suggestion for 3 - 24" monitors for a desk mount? I'd like to keep them in this same configuration as the picture, but I'd like to have something were I can actually angle the side screens - I can't do that on this mount, there isn't enough room to get the side monitors to angle more than maybe 5 degrees, if I'm lucky and I can get them to hold those positions.....but heaven forbid if they get bumped/touched and they shift out of position.

I want a new stand (or multiple stands, I'm okay with that if it has to be done) that can handle my three 24" monitors. What I have now is an Inland Triple Desk Monitor Mount (item shows up as a ProHT product now on Amazon). Here's an old pic of how it looks when I first got it:


I've had the mount for 3 years and it's just a huge pain in the ass that I'm tired of dealing with. Description of the item says it can support up to 3 - 27" monitors.....yeah right. The left and right mounting brackets are at the far end of the support arm with my 24" screens, there's no way you're going to get 3 - 27" monitors on this thing. If by some reason one of the side monitors gets bumped, they shift out of place and I fight with the stupid mount for 10-15 minutes trying to get everything lined up again. Every now and then one of the monitors, even though they're pushed up against each other tight, might tilt down and I have to fight getting them all to line up again. Every bracket is as tight as I can get them, but they still shift/move from the slightest bumps.

My monitors are 22.5", if that helps, and I want to keep them in their landscape setup, but have enough room to angle the side monitors in. Right now I'm looking at a couple of options:
Echogear Triple Monitor Desk Mount
TechOrbits Three Monitor Stand Mount

Anyone have other suggestions from experience?

Here's my setup - note the middle monitor is 24", and the other two are 22" 16:10 monitors.

Here's an eBay link (Australian) for what I got. I can horizontally angle them in quite well - probably further than what I have demonstrated here but I have everything cable tied at the moment.

Selby product page link.

Very good build quality.
