OK, I'm interested in the aluminum bars you have there. Please share.
Definitely interested by the monitors stand model and brand. I have the same setup 3x27' and cannot find a really nice stand
I'd love to see more pictures and details of your build, Complx.
How much did that setup cost you? I'm interesting in something like that and it's time I retire the old'e but faithful Jerker. I've gotten it held together with bolts.
to respond to the last page talking about ikea shipping prices. I actually found their shipping price to be pretty reasonable -- $149 flat fee for a galant series + queen size bed. I also tested their shipping quote by adding a big ass couch and it didn't change at all.
Man, I love Ikea. Ended up replacing the 2nd PC POS desk with a Ikea Fredrik that was in the "As-Is" section for $75. There is nothing wrong with this desk.
Sadly they only had one and my Jerker needs replacing, but part of that is I can't stand the thought of tossing it.
whats wrong with the jerker?
Great Setup! I see you have the first version Jerker, On Friday I picked up the same version you have but with dark grey metal with all the accessories in great condition for free!
You just found that out!?...Jk...That's the good thing about IKEA you can custom built your furniture.Just a heads up to Galant owners... I thought we had to buy the frame in order to replace the table top, but if you go into the store, you can buy just the table tops for each section. Maybe most know that, but I just found out. Thought I'd share. : )
To answer your question, it appears the mount was designed to sit flush with the desk in portrait mode with a 30" monitor, it sits almost exactly 1" off the desk with my setup because I elevated the mount, hope this helps.
