Ergotron make some of the best monitors out there – reliable, powerful and generally brilliant – but they’re also quite expensive. That’s probably why Amazon turned to Ergotron to create Amazon Basics monitors that offer the same great quality in a non-branded form for a lot less money.

Although today one of these weapons is even more expensive than normal because it’s ridiculous Voucher with a 40% discount. available on Amazon’s Ergotron LX example, bringing the price of a high-quality monitor arm down from £81 to just £49. That’s a great price for a bracket that can support monitors weighing up to 11kg with full tilt, swivel, swivel and height adjustment.

To get the discount, simply tag the 40% voucher on the product page and you’ll see the price changed to £49 at the checkout.

I’ve used the black version of this monitor arm for years, and it’s one of the best I’ve owned, and has proven to be significantly more stable than the cheaper options I’ve chosen in the past. Changing the position of the monitor is easy, and having a perfectly clean table to place the mouse and keyboard directly under the screen is a game changer – it’s really hard to go back to a desk stand after trying it out!

This Amazon Basics monitor arm comes with 75×75 and 100×100 VESA mounts, so almost any modern monitor should be compatible – just double-check your monitor’s product page before choosing one.

Either way, it’s a fair deal and worth a try – you can always return it if it doesn’t work for you, but I’m sure you’ll love it. You can even pick up two or three for a killer multi-monitor setup… Tempting I know!
