The days of old-school heavy brick-like monitors are long gone. Nowadays, you have a lot of cool gadgets such as monitor stands that can really help you when it comes to setting up your equipment the right way.
What am I talking about? Well when you think about your workspace or even your home setup, that is often the place where you spend most of your time sitting at your computer.
Therefore, when you think about the differences regarding our physique and different body types you will almost always want to adjust your monitor in the way that best suits you (so you can avoid any discomfort regarding either back pain, eye depth and soreness).

Best Vertical Monitor Mount
Here we are going to show you some of the best vertical monitor stands that we came across and tested so you can make an easier choice. These particular six products should be able to answer any demands that you guys might have when it comes to manipulating your monitor in any way that best suits you.
QUICK OVERVIEW: Best Vertical Monitor Stand
HUANUO Dual Monitor Stand
VIVO Dual Monitor Stand
Amazon Basics Monitor Stand
1. HUANUO Dual Monitor Stand
Here for the first product on our list, we have a really fine specimen the HUANUO dual monitor stand. The HUANUO Company itself was founded in 2006 and the company’s core goal is to improve your work environment, and therefore, your own comfort. Let’s not talk too much, sometimes it better to jump straight to the point.
Based on the usage of this product I would say it’s best used for workspace, but have in mind that it will not be compatible with glass and particle board desks.
The dual vertical monitor stand comes in handy when you have to work on separate projects at once. You can even work on one project and be able to use more information at once without the need to switch tabs or windows.
But don’t get me wrong, you can easily play games and be able to stream and see the stream on the other monitor. So, basically you can do whatever you seem fit and need at the moment. You can always be imaginative with this vertical monitor stand.
The first thing that came to my mind was, is my computer monitor is compatible with the stand. You can rest assured that this specific model is widely compatible with most 13″ to 32″ LCD monitors with a VESA pattern of 75×75 millimeters and 100×100 millimeters (weighing up to almost 10kg).
When it comes to setting up your monitor stand, with this particular model you can do it in two ways. There is the clamp version and the grommet version. I personally wouldn’t want to drill my table in order to set my dual monitor vertical stand. Therefore, the clamp comes in very handy, but of course, that is going to be your personal choice.
The next, if I may say, cool feature, and in my opinion, the first and most favorable thing are the ergonomic benefits that this product brings to the table. This means that you can(should) set your monitors to best benefit your posture and avoid straining your back, shoulders, and neck.
It is super easy to install, and above all the full motion feature enables you to position the monitor in any way/angle you like with the tilt, swivel, and rotation function.
2. VIVO Dual Monitor Desk Stand
For the next product on our list we have a similar product to the first one, but a bit more budget-friendly. The VIVO company is well known for its mission to combine creativity, innovation, and efficiency in order to maintain quality and at the same time deduct the cost of their products. A perfect combination if you ask me.
Considering the resemblance between the first product and this vertical monitor stand, there probably isn’t much more that I can say that I haven’t said already. But putting that aside, this is yet another fine piece.
This dual monitor vertical stand is highly budget-friendly. Why do I say highly? You literally can’t find a cheaper price for any similar models that also have similar specs.
If you either think about sitting or standing while you spend time at your computer this is the perfect product for you.
The setting option makes it perfect for all the different heights and postures. This means that you won’t ever have to experience back pain or sore neck and eyes from the bad posture that you had to maintain because of the lack of options when it comes to setting the perfect height/depth.
Obviously, the first thing that I checked was the compatibility. This individual model can hold from 13″ to 30″ screens. This was rather disappointing for me. Their decision to go for 30″ instead of 32″ wasn’t very smart regarding the small difference in size but a big problem if you have a 32″ monitor.
It can hold up to 8kg in weight and a standard combination of 75×75 millimeters and 100×100 millimeters with integrated cable management to maintain the cords in order.
The majority of choices regarding the articulation and height adjustments offer a +45 to -45 degrees’ tilt, 360 degrees’ rotation, and height adjustment alongside the center pole. You can also choose between the landscape or portrait mode.
The strong and padded base of this dual vertical monitor stand doesn’t only hold your monitors but also protects your table from scratches, the padded base glues to the table enabling it to move (the measures are 10.5″ by 15″).
The thing I am certain you all like to hear is that this product is very easy to assemble/install and above all, it has a 3-year warranty. The VIVO Company got your back.
3. Amazon Basics Monitor Stand
The Amazon Basics single monitor stand is the third product on our list. Unlike the first two products, this isn’t a dual monitor stand, it comes with only one mount. If I could say it’s a perfect choice for all of you gamers out there, because who needs two monitors for gaming. Now, with this cool single monitor stand you can adjust your setup to perfectly suit your needs.
If you are looking to buy a computer monitor stand it means that you are done with the generic monitor stands that you get when you buy a classic computer monitor.
The first reason to buy this stand would be the variety of options when it comes to setting up your monitor to your ideal height and depth so that you don’t necessarily need to endanger your back or your eyes while gaming/working on your pc.
If I could say, and this coming from an amateur gamer, that this particular monitor stand is a perfect combination for gamers.
The variety of adjustable options will always come in handy, especially that all of us game on a different level and above all, with different preferences regarding the position of our gear.
This individual product comes with a limited one-year warranty, and not only that, it’s also very easy to set/install. I was able to install it in a matter of minutes, and honestly, it wasn’t such a hassle at all, so I think you guys won’t have a problem with this either.
There is the standard VESA plate with 75 x 75 mm option and 100 x 100 mm option (it comes with all the necessary tools and hardware), and it is rather light considering its made of durable steel.
For the next feature, and I must say that I personally am not a fan of it, the 13″ to 30″ fit. Why do I say this? The stand itself supports up to 22 pounds (around 10kg), so basically it can easily hold a 32″ monitor. So why doesn’t it? I really can’t tell, and I am especially bummed cause half of my monitors are 32″.
The full range of motion on the other hand was a completely different thing. Also, it was very easy to manipulate, but with all that motion some of the screws tend to loosen up a bit (maybe I could say that this is a normal thing cause of all the moving). This shouldn’t be a major problem because you can always tighten them up after setting the monitor stand at the wanted position.
The adjustable screen tilt goes from -15 to +85 degrees, the 360-degree motion enables it to go from landscape mode to portrait mode. The height adjustment horizontal arm mount goes from 7.9 inches to 14.2 inches high.
4. VIVO Dual 27″ Monitor Stand
Here we have yet another fine dual monitor vertical stand from the VIVO company. As I said above, the VIVO company is well known for its aspiration to combine creativity, innovation, and efficiency in order to make a product that’s easy on the pocket but at the same time good quality. Do I even need to say more?
When you think about your desk space, two individual monitors will take a lot of space. Now with this dual monitor stand, you can make your monitors vertical and merge the two of them in one.
Either if you need to clean up space from your desk at your work office or from your battle station, you will be good to go with this fine product from the VIVO company.
The dual monitor stand is very sturdy and can easily hold two 27″ monitors, but the only thing you need to think about is your desk.
The desk must be also sturdy and made of strong materials since you can’t apply the dual monitor stand on the glass table. So basically, if you have a strong desk and two monitors you are good to go.
The thing that I concluded at first sight, was definitely the quality of the product. I can confirm the company’s claims regarding the quality and I can also say that this is the strongest (sturdiest) dual monitor stand within the price range.
When it comes to mounting, I can assure you that it is very easy to assemble and mount. The cool thing that I liked is the multiple ways of mounting it. The first way being the hefty duty C clamps, and by the way that is the option I went for honestly (I am not drilling-a-hole-in-my-table kind of guy).
As you can assume the second option is the grommet mount. Don’t get me wrong the grommet mount can sometimes be the safest way to make sure that your dual monitor stand won’t loosen up and damage your equipment. But in this specific situation, I can assure you that the C clamp is going to get the job done because it’s very hefty and will hold the monitors without any bending or curving.
As I have mentioned above, it holds from 13″ screens to 27″ screens in size. The maximum weight is 22 pounds (around 10kg) and the standard VESA mount goes from 75 x 75 mm to 100 x 100 mm.
The fully adjustable mode is the next reason, aside from space clearance, that we buy these products. It goes from -45 degree to +45-degree tilt, -45 to +45-degree swivel, and finally the 360-degree rotation to switch from portrait mode to landscape mode in a matter of seconds.
It’s very easy to assemble and it also comes with the integrated cable management. The easily attachable and detachable clips, which in my case really helped me, it kept my cables organized and clean.
5. WALI Dual Monitor Desk Stand
For the next product on our list, we have the WALI dual monitor stand. The WALI ELECTRIC is a Taiwanese company that is committed to making high-quality products for everybody’s pocket. They are striving to achieve the ideal stability between design, price, and functionality. Now, we’re going to see if they achieved it in this individual product.
The best thing about these dual monitor stands is that they give you the extra space that your monitors separately took without the vertical stand, and overall gives you a sense of aesthetics with your setup.
So, either if you need some extra space for your work or you just want your gaming station to look dope this is the product for you. It’s a rather budget-friendly solution that doesn’t lack in quality.
It can go on any strong desk, being that it has a freestanding V base you can also put it on a glass table or any material (be 100% sure that the table can hold the stand without any problems).
WALI really meant what they sad, this really is a good quality product and above all comes with a 10-year protection. The sturdy construction with high-grade materials guarantees a strong and stable connection with your monitor screen. The modern design will complement with the aesthetics of your home office or workplace.
You can choose from the free-standing mount option to the grommet option. In this case, I would suggest the grommet option. I just simply cannot trust this product enough to let it hold my two 4k monitors by a simple free-stand. The grommet base can maximally support a 4-inch thick desk.
When I mounted my dual monitor stand I concluded that it was very easy to adjust. Comes with a standard -45 to +45-degree tilt, -90 to +90-degree swivel, and 180-degree rotation which allows you to change from landscape mode to portrait mode.
It’s compatible with monitors up to 27″, with a maximum weight of up to 22lbs each (about 10kg), normally a standard VESA 75 x 75 mm and 100 x 100 mm. You can put it almost anywhere with the free-standing 15.5 x 11 inches.
This ergonomically designed dual monitor stand will allow you to work/spend time at your computer without the dangers of hurting your back or your eyes.
6. VIVO Quad Monitor Mount
This being the third VIVO product on our list there isn’t much more to say about the company itself that I haven’t already said. But when we look at the product itself, it surely is the Autobot in the monitor stand department. This dope-looking piece will absolutely get the job done when it comes to mounting multiple screens on one pole.
When you look at the product itself you can see that it can mount 4 screens, so if you want to feel like you’re working for NASA this is definitely the product for you. Joking aside, with this fine piece you can free your desk space to the maximum.
This model gives you the option to be imaginative and play with it till you set the right position that best suits you. I personally was curious if I could merge the 4 screens and make it work like one. Obviously, you will need screens without the black frame (monitors that are screen only without the frame).
With this modern computer monitor stand, you can work on 4 different projects at once or even work on one project but with much more space and comfort that this product gives you.
Obviously, the coolest feature of them all is the main feature, and that is that you can attach 4 monitors at once. This will give you plenty of space to work on your projects.
It can hold 4 monitors from 13″ up to 30″ screens in size and a 17.6lbs (around 8kg) in weight. As you can assume the standard VESA plate with 75×75 mm and 100×100 mm option. It also comes with detachable cable clips that helped me keep my cables in order.
The one thing I didn’t like about this product is the base. Why? Well in my opinion when we have 4 LCD monitors attached to one monitor stand I wouldn’t want to risk it falling and damaging my equipment. I could understand this if you could only hang one monitor, but with 4 it’s a totally different story. They should have at least gone for the grommet if not for the hefty C clamp.
The Base is padded so it at least protects your table from being scratched. The measurements are 15.25″ x 11″ that will provide solid stability (but be careful to put your monitors at center with gravity so that you can avoid any issues).
The standard 360-degree rotation enabling it to change from portrait mode to landscape mode. Adjustable arm provides +80 to -90-degree tilt and 180-degree swivel.
The thing that you guys like to hear the most is probably that it is very relaxing and easy to assemble and install. The manufacturer provides you with all the necessary tools needed for assembly. And finally, you will get a 3-year manufacturer warranty.
Things to Consider When Buying Vertical Monitor Stands
What do I mean when I say stability? Well, the first thing you need to look out for is the base itself, you would want your monitors to fall and sustain damage caused by the loose and wobbly base. I would always suggest going for the vertical monitor stands with the hefty C clamp.
You can also go for the grommet, but why would you want to drill a hole in the desk when the C clamp does the same job and doesn’t damage your table. The free-standing base is also okay, but only if it mounts only one monitor. My advice, don’t risk it go for the safest option.
The second thing you should always consider when you buy something like this is the quality. No one should go through the stress of damaging their own goods due to the lack of quality of their monitor stand. So, always check the quality before buying this type of product.
The final thing you should always check is if the stand supports the monitor you have. These products that we went through mainly support from 13″ to 27″ (30″). Therefore, always check for compatibility.
We have reached the end of our review and I hope that all of this material that we went through can help you guys choose the adequate vertical monitor stand. I really hope that you all learned something new from us today; after all, we are all here to do just that.
Everybody has a different taste, so I really can’t separate one individual product from our list. They are all good and bad in some ways. Keep in mind that nothing is perfect.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can any monitor be vertical?
With the right equipment, yes absolutely (just don’t get me wrong, we are talking about new generation monitors, not the old brick ones). That is only one of the multiple options that the vertical monitor stand brings to the table (like the name already says).
Is a monitor stand worth it?
Well, when you ask me something like that I must say, yes by all means it’s worth it. When we think about all the different sizes and shapes of our bodies, we all kind of sit in different positions.
Now with these vertical monitor stands, we have much more options from which we can choose and adjust the height and depth of the monitor that best suits our needs. This is great for avoiding any back pain, eye soreness, or any other kind of problem.
But that isn’t the only benefit of this product, with it you can clear up desk space and make the work or home environment just a little bit more stylish.
Do monitor stands work with all monitors?
If the question is, are all monitor stands universal, then the answer is no. The variations go from one stand to another. Some will be compatible with monitors from 13″ up to 32″, and some from 13″ to 27″ or 30″ there can be different varieties, it all depends. One more thing, the monitor stands are mostly made for new generation monitors. The old grey bricks can’t be mounted.
