Editor's Notes

March 07, 2019:

I thought that ergonomics and adjustability were two of the most important values to consider when customizing this list. Many of the available options accommodate multiple monitors, which is great for collaborative or interactive work environments. That said, I did my best to balance aesthetics and functionality when making my choices. I also tried to find models that could appeal to different demographics (i.e. office professionals, gamers, etc.). The AmazonBasics Premium, for example, is an excellent value with plenty of practical applications, but without being fancy or showy. I figured the Jestik Trinity 3.0 might kick up the style a notch, given its modern design and 360-degree range of motion. The integrated cable management also comes in quite handy for hardcore gamers who may be using a variety of peripherals. Also added the EleTab Dual for its adjustable tension and gas spring hovering system, which works to counterbalance the weight of particularly large and heavy displays. I thought the VersaDesk Omniview was a pretty innovative contender, thanks to its notched mounting pole for seamless height adjustments. On the same topic, the Vivo Premium is a unique choice due to its use of a pull-down handle for the same type of customization. Although the TechOrbits SmartSwivel is a bit dated from 2017, I still thought it was worthy of inclusion because of its modern design and self-balancing limbs, making it easy to rotate up to 3 monitors in virtually any direction. Also included the Mount-It! Triple, as each of the arms is equipped with 4 separate adjustment points. It also includes built-in audio and usb ports.
