I was looking to upgrade my antiquated computer monitors to this century recently; this meant that I also needed to upgrade my monitor mounts. I ended up purchasing 3 different computer monitor mounts before I found the Mountio Full Motion, Gas Spring Arm Mount. This would be the first gas spring computer monitor mount I have used; I am very happy with this purchase.
The Amazon listing for this mount boasts that this mount is:
- FULL MOTION MOUNT: Screen can be tilted and rotated in any direction – up 35 degrees and down 50 degrees with a combined 360 degree landscape rotation.
- UNIVERSAL FIT: Compatible with most 17 inch – 27 inch flat panel monitors / screens weighting from 4.4 lbs to 13.2 lbs. VESA compliant from 75x75mm to 100x100mm.
- FULLY ADJUSTABLE: A gas spring system ensures one-touch positioning of the screen in any desirable setting. Note that desk mount can be adjusted only after a screen/monitor is mounted upon it.
- STABLE: Item ships with all needed hardware for C-clamp mounting on any working surface or gromment installation. High quality materials and solid construction ensure an extremely sturdy mount.
- COMFORTABLE AND VERSATILE: Easily adjustable to the most comfortable monitor height and viewing angle for work, leisure or gaming.
Mountio Monitor Arm Construction
The first thing you notice about this computer monitor mount is how sturdy the construction is. Due to my mount purchases prior to my Mountio mount, I have been very critical of the construction of these mounts. To my surprise, this mount is very solid. The joints give when leveraged but not until then.
A few of the other computer monitor mounts I purchase had plastic pieces for some of the supporting arm segments. This use of plastic had me nervous to mount 27 in monitors on the arms. The Mountio mount uses metal to keep this mount sturdy.
Mountio Monitor Arm Gas Spring Movement
I have never used a gas spring desk mount for my computer monitor so the feel of the Mountio mount was very new to me. I was very pleased to see that the movement of the monitors on the mount are almost effortless. So effortless, I was afraid that the slightest nudge would send my monitors flying. However, they stick in place even when there is some residual movements from typing or hitting the desk.
The next thing you need to know is that this mount truly is 360 degrees of full motion. If you have a place to put this monitor, no matter where you want to be in relation to it, you will be able to turn it in that direction. I was testing this out and was stunned by how awesome the movement range was.
If I were to point out an issue I have with the Mountio Desk Mount, it is the slight wobble you get from the mount. This could easily be attributed to my desk, as its not anchored down and I have tightened the bolts on the mounts; but there is a slight wobble.
Mountio Monitor Arm Price
If you are anything like me, after you have invested a significant amount of money for proper computer monitors, you do not really want to dole out serious cash for the computer monitor mounts (no matter how counter intuitive that statement is). You will be happy to note that this computer monitor mount will not break your bank!
The Mountio Full Motion Gas Spring Desk mount is currently only $27.99 on Amazon.
