[Amazon Canada] North Bayou Monitor Desk Mount Stand Full Motion Monitor Arm for 22-32 Computer Monitor with Gas Spring F85A

I bought an older model of this mount 2 years ago for $40, can't believe how cheap they are now. This company makes solid mounts, don't be dissuaded by the naysayers saying the gas mount will break, mine is going strong for > 2 years, very fluid motion then the rigid non gas spring, only needed to tighten the joints once a year. 5 years ago all these monitor mounts were easily $200,

Update:

They have another model today going for $37, not that great of a price as yesterday:

The gas spring has nothing to do with the clamp. It's a tensioning device within the arm that counters the weight of the monitor, so that you can easily push the monitor to a new position and it will stay there.

Literally just purchased a dual monitor mount from prime cables for $51 2 days ago.... Oh well. I use a gas spring at work and they are great.

OK so the picture of this mount in the middle of the desk is bullshit right? Like it has to mount to an edge of a desk

I bought 2 of these a few months ago and I only ended up using one, if anyone cares to pick mine up in the Ottawa region for $20 (It is also already assembled for you).

Dare I ask why so many people seem to buy this, given (i think?) most monitor have height-adjustable stands anyway?

Mine came with 2 assembly tools, one on the edge (clamp) another one if your desk has a monitor hole, you use the other attachment. In China, many desks hve such a hole for monitor arms.

Those that missed it, these arms regularly go on lightening deals, just look out for them. I think i saw the dual monitor spring arm one on sale for $42 a few weeks ago. This company makes solid arms and cheap . .

the pricing on this is so weird, it fluctuate like hell, i've seen it as high as 70-100$ and usually avgs to like 50 bucks.
I bought 2 different brand ones for 35$ each last year. I bought this one a few months back for 25$ (I was monitoring the price for this for a few week when it was ~ 40-50$ and knew it would drop lower).
They're the exact same thing except the metallic sticker/logo.

I feel like i've seen it go as low as 20$.

the picture is photoshopped, but these stands have a second 'base'/clamp, that lets you mount it in a hole.

Because, even if its height adjustable, it leaves the stand on your desk. This gives it that floating monitor look and you can push the monitor out of the way, rotate easily, and you can shove stuff under the monitor that might be blocked by the base.

I have two of these, bought for when they were $30 or so a few months ago. Does the job, isn't $200+ dollars like Amazon Basics/Ergotrons - happy with them (I'm using with two 24")
