Bottom Line

There had not been any reviews about AmazonBasics dual side-by-side monitor, and this may just be the first in-depth review you will find online. This is not to say though that it failed in its claims of providing better avenues for dual monitor setup. Because as a matter of fact, it gained quite respectable reviews in Amazon’s site. The quality of the construction is quite good, up from the arms down to the base. It provides great maneuverability and adjustability, making it a great option for almost any type of dual monitor user, be it for work, or gaming purpose. Also, there’s not a lot of dual monitor stand with fully-articulating arm in the market today that can support dual display setup. Its arms are strong enough to hold 27-inch big monitors securely and still provide easy and smooth adjustability. Almost the same like Ergotron dual monitor arms.

It requires some installation, but it’s pretty easy to setup. Both clamp and grommet options provide secured base, which is crucial for dual monitor setup.
