Free standing monitor arms are very similar to the original monitor mounts that monitors come equipped with from the manufacturer. However in some cases, freestanding monitor arms can still offer additional functionality.
One of the main setups that people prefer freestanding monitor mounts is if they can't attach a C-clamp to their desk. That could be caused by thin/thick tables or glass tables.
Additionally, wall mount arms can usually support heavier monitors, compared to desk stands as they attach directly to the wall. As long as you aren't damaging your wall, wall mounts provide the most flexibility.
The main thing we care about when it comes to freestanding monitor stands is its' sturdiness. Unlike other mounting methods, these mounts aren't secured to the desk. So whenever you move the monitors or the desk itself it might wiggle. Based on all of this, here are our favorites.
