Wants:
Acrylic
Rubber feet
1-2 inches adjustable rise


Background: Currently using two different monitors with wildly different stand heights. Using a book that is 1.14 inches thick to bridge the difference. I'd like to claim some desk real eastate under the monitors to use for paper storage

The monitors I use:

LG IPS LED 24MP56
ASUS IPS MX239H - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236310

Thanks for any sugggestions.

Why not dual arms to claim even more desk space back?

https://www.amazon.com/VIVO-Monitor-Adjustable-Screens-STAND-V002/dp/B009S750LA
FULL ARTICULATION – Adjustable arm offers 15° tilt, 360° swivel, 360° rotation, and height adjustment along the center pole. Monitor can be placed in portrait or landscape shapes

The height cannot be adjusted after you set it in place, at least not like the other adjustments, but with it attached to your desk at the rear, you basically get your entire desk opened up.

If you also need the height adjustable, you could go with a more expensive option:

Out of stock right now, but there are other brands with identical products.

Only problem is I'd have a dangling stand on my ASUS monitor. It is not removable as far as I can see. Also, no mounting holes, but as you suggested, Velcro is easily applied.

I really want to get three identical monitors; but can't afford a $600 dump right now due to car costs.
