Scrutiny Saturday: Ergotron LX Desk Mount Review

Ergotron LX Desk Mount LCD Arm: It’s something of a must-have if you want to get the most out of your graphics tablet monitor. It also has the potential to inexpensively turn your desk into a sit-stand desk. The first one I got was defective (the tilt mechanism was WAY too tight) but the second works like a charm. I HIGHLY recommend this product. See the video for the Ergotron LX Desk Mount Review:

Disclaimer: None of this is guaranteed to make you a better #gamedev or even necessarily necessary. This is just my preference for making a great, cost effective work space.

From the product’s description page:


  • Increase viewing comfort–help reduce eye, back and neck strain
  • Cable management feature routes cables under the arm, out of the way
  • Extends LCD up to 25″ (64 cm); push your display out of the way when not in use
  • Increase viewing comfort and help reduce eye, back and neck strain with improved ergonomic adjustment
  • Patented CF motion technology provides easy adjustment; polished aluminum construction for great looks and durability
  • Clamp and grommet mount base ensures stability of display and arm; includes theft deterrent anchor holes for cable locks
  • Extends LCD up to 25 inches with 13-inch height range; push display out of the way when not in use
  • Cable management feature routes cables under the arm, out of the way

I’ll add that it is a nicely engineered bit of kit. Most of it simply assembles by sliding into place. Until you’ve used it, you may be skeptical about it’s ability to defy gravity and simply keep your monitor where ever you choose to position it. But it works in exactly that way! It is something of a dream come true to be able to have your monitor behave as if it were on an easel or as a sketchpad in your hand. Pricey, but a solid buy.
