This review is from: Ergotron 45-214-026 MX Desk Mount LCD Arm
Pros: - More flexible than the images would suggest. Rotates at every joint, easy to get the monitor exactly where you want it.
- Super strength! I mounted an LG 34UM95, a 34" monitor, and this arm holds it like a champ.
- Clamp is good and firm.
- Cable routing built in.
- Looks like a cybernetic arm!
- Every single part is huge and heavy, all metal is thick and inspires confidence that it's solid as a rock.
Cons: - A small plastic part, which thankfully is only decorative, was broken off when I received it. It doesn't really bother me but I'd have liked it even more if it hadn't been broken. It's not worth sending it back and going without the arm, though, so that should tell you how much I'd hate to go without it.
Other Thoughts: This is THE arm to use if you want a VESA arm for some of the larger desktop monitors. With a 30 lbs capacity, it's more than up to the task, and provides outstanding monitor mobility.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This monitor is impressive from the moment you unbox it. It's much larger than you think until you see it - it's just utterly field of view enveloping. But more than just a large screen, the incredible amount of real estate 3440x1440 offers is comparable to a dual-monitor setup, minus the bezels. Sitting in front of this monitor feels like taking the captain's chair.
More than that, the picture is gorgeous. Colors are vibrant, and the DPI is at the perfect sweet spot where text is still easily readable but the image looks fluid.
I bought this monitor as the ultimate gaming monitor, and it has not disappointed in that regard either. The enhanced FOV is advantageous in multiplayer and incredibly immersive in single player games. The resolution is fairly demanding to run games on but completely within reach of modern hardware.
It's purely personal preference, but I was also happy with the input port placement, about as good as you could hope for if using with a VESA arm. The joystick is a decent idea, does allow you to control the monitor with a single "button," which certainly beats squinting at several buttons to find the right one.
Cons: The stand is not as bad as some reviewers make it out to be, it's a combination of clear plastic and what looks like brushed aluminum, so it's hardly a $2 throwaway. That said, I never used it once - this monitor is really made to be used on a VESA arm for adjustability and precision placement, and I think LG knew it and threw in an excuse stand to keep the overall cost down. That's fine, I would guess the vast majority of people seriously interested in this kind of monitor would prefer a custom mount anyway.
The plastic bottom bezel looks a little out of place, but it doesn't detract from the overall greatness of the monitor.
Other Thoughts: I've heard some report bad light bleeding. Even on an all black screen I saw little to no bleeding unless at a very sharp angle. In normal use the screen looks nice and uniform, so if this was an issue before, it would seem the newer batch has corrected it.
Linus was right on the money with this one. 4K is dead, 21:9 is king. Long live the king.
