    I'm using 2 EasyMountLCD hex monitor stands. They're only $120 each. I've seen people DIY their own monitor stands and they end up way more expensive than that.

    I was looking for a mount a long time ago and people wanted too much money. That is until I came across EasyMountLCD. The best made and least expensive mounts out there. When ever someone is in the market I don't hesitate to recommend them.

    I already had one of the Dell 2560x1440, then got the other Dell (used) and the Predator X34 (refurb). I naively thought I could have a 3-monitor surround setup using the two Dells and the Predator, but turns out all monitors have to be same size and display for surround.

    I noticed many wall-mounted monitors on this thread and realized I had a nice space on the wall just above the Predator to do this. Got the 4K monitor after finding deals at Costco and stuck it on the wall. At that point I'd sunk a lot of cash into the Predator and decided to keep it as a gaming monitor. The wall-mounted 4K is used for TV and movies (mostly) while the other three monitors are used for gaming/work/etc. If I did not already have the Predator I probably would have gone with a large 4K monitor (not the 40" on the wall but something bigger) and stuck it between the Dells. But I do like the Predator so this will probably be my setup for the next few years. Unless I can figure out a way to a) afford and b) fit two more Predators on my desk. Now THAT would be a sweet surround setup.

    nothing special, it isn't set up for gaming. I may replace with Vega if it ever comes out, or just leave it as is. its running everything with no issues, or crazy power draw.

    Specs:

    Corsair Crystal 460x RGB
    6x Acer XF270HU
    Corsair RM1000x
    Asus ROG Crosshair VI Hero
    Ryzen 1700x
    Corsair Dominator Platinum 16gbx2 DDR 3000mhz (running at 2133)
    Samsung 960 Evo 250gb
    2x Powercolor Radeon RX570
    Corsair H100i v2
    Corsair M65
    Corsair K95 RGB Platinum
    3x VIVO 2 monitor stands (vertical)
    APC 1500VA

    I just bought another monitor stand from easymountlcd.com. I have their original one and wanted to add one above my three. The extension pole wouldn't fit on the mount I had. I emailed them and they explained that the mount was updated, so I bought the new one. I'm in the process of changing everything over.

    A quarter of the way through changing up my desk/computer setup. Having a problem with the monitor mount. The right display is 1" higher than the other two. I'm not sure what's causing it but I sent them an email and hope to hear back. I tried every adjustment I can and it's not helping.

    Received an email yesterday. They gave me a couple of things to check. I did some stuff before contacting them. I'll double check everything according to their instructions and see what the issue is or if I have a defective part.

    Here is a picture showing the problem.

    Did you check if your monitors are level both vertically and horizontally?

    I get that issue too with my multimonitor rigs especially as some of my pole mounts can rotate to portrait so I keep a level at my desk to check when I move the monitors around.

    Yes. I did everything they asked and the right display still is too high. I took everything apart and took some measurements. From the desk surface to the bottom of each arm varies by 3/4" (the right side is higher). There is not enough adjustment to overcome this. I sent the company more pictures and I'm waiting to hear back.

    What type of mount are you using? I've tried a lot of different mounts and the U3011 is just too heavy for arms-mount solutions, even when the panel weight is under the specifications.

    This is my computer nook.

    After seven years away from PC gaming (and losing my [H] login), I set this space up to catch up on all of the titles I've missed. Starting Witcher 3 today.

    The screen is an Asus ROG Swift PG348Q mounted on an Ergotron MX arm. It's driven by a 7700K at 4.9 and a 1080ti Strix OC edition.

    Moved in with my girlfriend. Here's our temporary setup while we figure out how to merge all our crap together, lol.

    My rig is on the left, hers is on the right:

    Updated my setup from three U3011s to a single 4k Sony 49 inch TV.

    Also replaced my logitech Z5500s for the SVS prime Satellite 2.1 speakers and an Onkyo stereo receiver.

    She's got a setup like that? You had better put a ring on that.

    My setup is almost complete. Snagged me a Samsung UN43KU7500. Just need comfortable fat guy chair, and I should be all set.

    This is what happens when I get bored and have too much time and equipment on my hands:

    [​IMG]nine_monitors, on Flickr

    All the monitors are hooked up to my main workstation, the 2x2 on the left are also plugged into my work laptop for when I work from home, the 30" on the right is hooked up to my personal laptop as well. The M92z on the far right is used only in monitor mode.

    I may finally have gone too far, even I haven't figured out what to do with this many monitors on 1 workstation.

    Oh well, you never know your limits until you surpass them :)

    Look on Craigslist or Offer up. Bought 2 for less than 100 each.

    Wow! That was some great buys. Will have to see if I can do the same. Thanks
