Would this be okay for an 34 "ultrawide?

A part of me always wants to know if I'm close to the lowest price. Has it been any lower recently?

I also have a 34" ultrawide that also works on this. You just need to tighten the gas spring tension.

You just have to make sure the weight is within the rated capacity. The width/height of the screen is irrelevant as long as the mounting point is at the center. The diagonal measurement they quote is just a reference, and potentially a way to deny you of any support if things go south. I imagine they say up to 27" because there are older 27" screens that exceed the weight limit, but anything modern should weight less than that.

I also have a 34" ultrawide and a standing desk with a shelf on top so need to move it around when it's in standing position. With the tightened gas spring tension, is the adjusting still fairly easy or requiring more of an oumph to move it? (which would be annoying if swiveling around a lot)

i'm debating to get it because my dell monitor's built in stand already has adjustable tilt and height so I'm like, do I need this other than to move it closer and further .... and I guess aesthetics.

The arm becomes stiffer and won't move as easily but still holds up the monitor. You can move the monitor out to avoid your shelf, but I'd caution that it the arm might start to slouch and have a harder time holding it up.

Honestly might be better to just buy one off Amazon and return it if you don't like the results. Otherwise, it's better to get a more premium product if you move it often.

Thanks for the insight! So I guess if moving the monitor out into this position could cause eventual slouching or more regular tightning of the tension. Maybe I'll try to move it just more up and down and to the side, less frontwards and backwards then...

The more premium ones, like Ergotron or the one I really like, the AVLT ones (in white, to fit the look and feel of my desk) are definitely really nice and have been monitoring the prices but not sure the cheapest being $200+ I can quite justify.

Ahh,12 hours left till this sale ends and still thinking it over. It's definitely cheaper than the recent usual sales as I've had a price alert on this thing and it used to be $74.99 and then had a 10 or 15% discount on it (so inflated regular price as of recent but bigger discount)

*edit* 12 hours later, ended up buying it. Will see how it works out and if I can mount it on the side of my desk (width side, not length side)

The size is mostly arbitrary, weight is the main factor.

Can definitely go bigger if it’s comfortably under the weight

What about jiggle when the desk gets “bumped” (aka you put your hand on the desk to move something)?

I have regular non gas monitor mounts. If I switch to gas ones would i have to pull the desk away from the wall to allow room for the arm?

You won't have to move your desk away, the arm would be angled out to the side.

Yea it'd be the same thing, they both would be just out in opposite ways. You should be fine.

Updating this thread now that it’s moved to expired hot deals:
I received it in 2 days after buying it Sunday and installed it yesterday. Works great with my 34” ultra wide and I managed to mount it on the width part of my desk. Installation instructions were on the product page and fairly easy to follow along with. BUT the instructions showed the tilt adjustment as near the swivel adjustment so I was like I can’t see it! And took off the monitor again to see if I was missing something, turns out it was on the bottom.

But aesthetically, looks great with my white desk and easy to adjust when I move from sitting to standing.

Recommend it if you’re on the fence and another sale happens.
