One of the best aspects of running this website is having relationships with readers. I recently received a review from a reader on a computer monitor organizer that she recently purchased.
I have to tell you up front that I don’t own one of these and the main reason that I never purchased an item like this is because I hang my computer monitor on my cubicle wall with this monitor cubicle hanger that I wrote about in this article.
So, since my computer monitor is hanging from my cubicle wall I obviously have no need for this or any computer monitor organizer. Jean, one of my readers, sent along a review of the computer monitor organizer seen above and I truly appreciate her for sending me this review so as to help other readers who may be interested in this or a similar product.
Here's what Jean wrote to me in an email recently:
I thought you might be interested in this Computer Monitor Organizer, if you don’t already have something like it. I looked on CubicleBliss.com and didn’t see anything similar, but I just took a quick look today. Several of us in my office got these recently and like them. They are a little pricey I guess (luckily our company paid for ours), but very useful so would be well worth the money for some people. I don’t have any connection to this product, other than being a customer, by the way – just thought it was along the lines of useful products you talk about.
Here is an image of both of her computer monitor organizers in her office with side by side monitors.
Here is Jean's review of the product:
Good Computer Monitor Organizer –
Measure your monitor before you order
I just set up 2 of these for my 2 monitors, and I really like them so far. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the dimensions advertised aren't accurate. The catalog says it raises your monitor 4 inches, when in fact it's 4-5/8 inches. (Doesn't sound like much, but can make a difference especially if you have progressive lens glasses.) Also the overall height is 7″, not 6-1/2″. It's important to give customers the correct dimensions so they can determine if the item will fit in the intended space. Luckily it worked out ok for my case. I would recommend measuring your area and equipment carefully before you decide if these will work for your specific situation.
My monitors just barely clear the sides of the organizer. My organizers appear to be pretty well made. Were easily assembled with 4 screw/nut sets each (included). I used a screwdriver on the screw head while holding pliers on the nut to get them firmly tightened (“get it tight but don't lay on it,” is advice I received years ago). The stands are now very stable and I can't imagine the screws would loosen up if the stands not moved around. I assembled all the side trays “backwards” on purpose, so they're turned inward (underneath the shelf). That made an overall width of about 14-1/4″ per unit and allowed me to put them closer together. You could even put one side tray inward and one outward if you wanted. Overall I think it's a good product.
