If you’re someone who needs double the screen space for productivity, work, or gaming, a dual monitor solution works great. Whether it’s the free-standing kind that sits atop your desk, or the mounted variety that clamps or screws — dual monitor stands are perfect for adding organization and flexibility to your workstation, while saving precious desk space. Pricing will vary depending on design and how much weight the stand (or stands) can hold. You’ll find that some dual monitor systems have arms that twist, turn, and extend to provide even more flexibility and functionality. Before purchasing dual monitor stands, make sure you are aware of how wide your monitors are, how much they weigh, and whether a desktop or mounted stand is the ideal solution for you.
