Choosing the Right Computer Monitor Stand

If you're looking for a computer monitor stand, it's important to choose one with the right features to suit your needs. Most models are designed to allow you to adjust the position of the monitor, so you can effectively display it on your desk. eBay has an extensive choice of adjustable monitor stands to suit every budget.

What are the main features of a computer monitor stand?

Computer monitor stands come with a vast array of features. In addition to traditional mounts and stands, there are many models which feature swivel arms that are designed to hold the monitor aloft. If a monitor stand is able to rotate and swivel, it makes the screen easier to adjust. Here are some of the main features you can find:

  • Bases: You can choose from mounts with fixed or adjustable bases.
  • Storage: Many computer monitor stands include drawers or shelves for storage.
  • Risers: Designed to maximise workspace on your desk.
  • Dual Stands: A spacesaver for those who require two screens while working.
What materials are screen stands made from?

Computer monitor stands can be made from a variety of different materials. Toughened aluminium and robust plastic are common options. Some are made from powder coated steel, which is an extremely strong material. There are also bespoke screen stands made from polished wood available on eBay.

What should you look for when choosing a monitor stand?

Since the primary function of a mount is to safely support your monitor, you'll want to consider the size and weight of your monitor. Larger and heavier computer screens require stronger and sturdier stands. If storage is important to you, look for a stand with built in storage that will help keep your desk clean and organised.

What are the advantages of dual monitor stands?

Dual monitor stands allow you to position two computer screens side by side in your workstation. Being able to use two screens can increase productivity by allowing you to work at a faster pace. With two screens, you don't have to switch between tabs, windows, and other applications as frequently as you normally would. Additionally:

  • Dual monitor stands allow you to fit monitors into your workspace according to your personal needs.
  • You can easily add and remove monitors if required.
  • They're usually adjustable, so you can place them at an ideal viewing height.
