Ergotron always makes sure their products can be setup and installed by all users, even those without good skills in assembly and construction. It comes with two basic mount choices; grommet and clamp, and both options offers easy and hassle-free installation.

Plus, it includes hardware for installation on Ergotron’s WorkFit-T and TL sit-stand desktop workstation.

Also, using its articulating arm and moving your display anywhere you want in your desk is as easy as pushing the monitor with your fingertips. The arm moves smoothly, but keeps the desk in place in stable and secured fashion.

Obviously, with grommet, you need to make a hole on your desk to setup the mount arm. Clamp on the other hand, simply needs some room at the backside of your desk to clamp and lock on. It is also the easier and faster option.

Screwing the monitor on the mount also comes easy, thanks to the VESA bracket tools that comes with all Ergotron products. It supports VESA 75mm x 75mm and 100mm x 100mm, while the package also comes with thumb screws and head screws for the VESA mount.


Tech Specs

Package includes the mounting arm, extension, desk clamp, grommet mount, monitor attachment hardware, and installation hardware for WorkFit-T/TL.


Bottom Line

All in all, the Ergotron MX Mini Desk Mount Arm indeed maintained the standard of Ergotron in its elegant aesthetics and superb functionality. It allows flexible adjustments, which means it can provide all the ergonomics you need for your display, be it a small monitor, a laptop, or even a tablet.

It holds displays securely, without having to need accessories to fit in your desk space. The downside of course, as a mini desk mount, it is not designed to hold big and heavy displays. It is means for small screens, which should be helpful for people working on a limited space, and in office cubicles.
