Now that you got your shiny new UltraWide monitor, you want to step up your game and get a monitor arm to get more usable space out of your desk. Unfortunately, you will quickly notice that the most monitor arms on the market don't support UltraWide monitors.
In this article we will review some of the best monitor arms for ultrawide monitors that can support monitors such as 34, 38 and 49-Inch super ultrawides.
Which is why we have curated some of our favorite UltraWide monitor setups that use monitor arms for to reclaim the space occupied by the big ultrawide monitor and to make the setup a lot more ergonomic.
The main factor to consider when buying a monitor arm for an ultrawide monitor is the monitor arm's maximum weight capacity. For most 34 to 38-Inch ultrawide monitors this shouldn't be a deal breaker, as these are just bit heavier compared to 27 inch monitors.
For example one of the popular 38-Inch Ultrawide monitor from LG is around 22 lbs (10 kg) and AOC's 34-Inch gaming ultrawide is around 10.5 lbs (5 kg).
You should still check the weight of your monitor and the capacity of the monitor arm you are considering, since some of the lower quality monitor mounts can barely support 27-inch monitors.
However, the story is completely different for 49-Inch Super Ultrawide monitors. They are much heavier compared to 38-Inch ultrawide monitors.
Most of the monitor mounts on the market won't support that weight. Monitor arms that support super ultra wide 49 inch monitors are usually marked as heavy duty specifically.
For example, Samsung 49-inch G9 Ultrawide Gaming Monitor weights around 31 lbs (14 kg) which is more than what most monitor arms can carry.
However you should be careful when checking the weight of your monitor, as the product weights specified on websites such as Amazon include the weight of the stand which is not what you need.
You might need to check the product page of the manufacturer to get the accurate weight without to stand, as that stand will be demounted.
Based on our research, 33lbs (15kg) is usually the upper limit for most heavy
duty monitor arms. Make sure to check

In addition to these, you will need to decide if you need the arm to be height adjustable. You might prefer a height adjustable arm if you regularly change your seating position.
