A Monitor Stand is a work from home essential that serves two important purposes: Giving you extra space for your accessories, cleaning off your desk, and making your workspace more ergonomic. By elevating your monitor closer to eye-level you won’t have to crane your neck for hours at a time, which can strain it over time.
We’ve had hands-on testing time with a number of monitor stands, and collected the ones that are worth your time in this guide. All of these stands will work with any monitor, regardless of its size or who makes it. You can also use these stands to elevate a laptop — PC or Mac — or a monitor and computer if the stand is large enough.
If your neck is sore at the end of each work day, or you want a little extra storage space on your desk, these are the monitor stands we recommend.
There are many factors to consider when choosing the best Monitor Stands for you; below are the most important ones, which we considered while we were researching this list.
Size: The monitor stands we’re recommending are between 10 and 46 inches wide; larger ones are better if you want to fit two monitors, while smaller ones are better for compact desks.
Elevation: The monitor stands in our guide are between 2.19 and 8.5 inches tall — think about this when deciding how high your monitor needs to be for optimal comfort. If you use an Adjustable Stand, you’ll have more flexibility.
Materials: All of the monitor stands we’re recommencing are made out of wood or metal, so they’ll add a nice aesthetic quality to your home office.
Additional Space: One of the biggest advantages of using a monitor stand is the ability to use space below the stand for storage. Every monitor below offers some level of storage for accessories, so you can clean up your desk.
If we can’t adjust our monitors, we adjust ourselves and our posture to the position of our screen. We hunch. We crane our necks. And in computer intensive roles, we do this for long periods of time. This leads to eye, neck and back strain, which in turn leads to musculoskeletal disorders, time off work, and ultimately a loss in productivity.
This is where an adjustable Pos Stand is key. If a person can adjust the height, distance and angle of their monitor it means they can adjust their technology to their own unique requirements. Reducing the occurrence of eye, neck and back strain.
At home, or in the office, using a Tablet Stand is a practical solution to free your hands and comfortably read multimedia content. But still, most people are not aware of their alluring benefits. Also, this accessory is available in such a wide variety, that it can be tricky to find the one that suits your needs.
Viewing a tablet screen on a flat surface or haphazardly propped up on something is both uncomfortable and annoying, while having to hold it up at a certain height gives you dead arms. A tablet desk stand offers you comfort and even saves you from neck, arm, and back pain.
If you’re using both hands to type on your Macbook but still want to use your iPad to view something, then a tablet stand could prove helpful.
A desktop stand can improve productivity once the tablet is at the same level as your computer, as you can easily switch between tasks.
