Should you get Dual or Single Freedom Arm?
Due to increase in setups using multiple monitors, Ergotech added a new version to It's freedom arm series.
Now you can use freedom arm to mount two monitors side by side. This version still includes one middle pole, however each arm is actually connected to seperate poles. That increases the extension of each arm.
I usually prefer multi monitor setup, especially If I can mount the second monitor vertically. Depending on your workstation use case this could be very handy.
For example, If you are coding, vertical monitor can help you see all of the code that you are working on. Or you could use the second monitor to browse the internet or chat with friends while playing a full screen game on the main monitor.
Ergotech Freedom Arm for Apple iMac and LED Display
Unfortunately unlike most monitors in the market; iMac and Apple LED displays do not support vesa mount.
VESA mount is a standard mounting used in all monitor mounts. It comes with 4 screws in square shape.
You can easily check if you monitor supports VESA mounts by checking the back of It. If you see 4 holes, each of them being same distance from each other, then your monitor most probably supports VESA mounts.
There is a version of Ergotech Freedom Arm for Apple displays. There are two things different compared to other monitor mounts.
Since Apple iMac and 27 inch apple display come with aluminum chassis, they are a lot more heavier compared to other monitors. Ergotech Freedom arm can support that heavy weight.
The main difference however is how the display mounts to the monitor arm. Ergotech includes It's custom mount for Apple display.
You will need to disassemble the apple stand that the monitor comes with and attach the Ergotech mount. Once you do that your monitor can be attach to the arm like other monitors.
Below I have included some real pictures using Ergotech freedom arm for Apple iMac and LED display.
