Ergotron LX Triple Display Lift Stand: An In-Depth Review
Computer technology is fast evolving, leading to the increase for demand of more ergonomic and productive workstations. One of the most common ways for a productive workstation is setting up dual monitor or multiple monitor computer system. However, simply putting up two, three or multiple displays on your desk will not solve everything. One of the biggest challenges in multiple display setup is fitting all your display on your work area without the clutter and dealing with discomfort and poor ergonomics. This is where good multi monitor stand comes into the picture. Ergotron’s LX Triple Display Lift Stand is quite an impressive product for its purpose. Let’s take a closer look.
Who is it for?
The Ergotron LX Triple Display Lift Stand is a great solution for people looking to manage their work space and free up their desk while still have a nice 2 or 3 monitor setup and move multiple displays in unison. Like other products in its brand, this model is well-built with high quality components, solid base and attractive finish while also being very functional and easy to use.
The brand is a world-wide known provider of high quality monitor stands and workstations, and the LX Triple Display Lift Stand is another testament of its reputation. Right from first look you will notice the quality of this product; sturdy components, solid construction and attractive look all designed to provide Ergotron brand of ergonomics.
Lift and Tilt Monitors in Tandem, Maintaining Position Integrity
Like other monitor stands from Ergotron, this too is also equipped with the brand’s patented motion technology for premium adjustments. A feature that allows users to adjust the monitors to their preferred viewing angle and height with one smooth touch and still maintain position integrity as it sits around on top of a desk.
Excellent Choice for Triple Monitor Productivity
The base and lift standoff this product is made up of heavy-duty industrial grade plastic and comes with underside re-enforcement. The lift stand is the product’s heaviest component and it houses the part that allows you to tilt and move the monitors up and down.
It is also sturdy enough to hold three monitors without you worrying about your monitors falling. It also comes with enough parts for mounting options.
Easy To Setup and Use
Ergotron provides more than enough monitor mounting option. You can mount 75mm and 100mm and recessed and non-recessed monitor mounting options. The bracket is attached to the monitor arm using the C clamp.
Adjustability is one of the strongest key points of this multiple monitor stand. It can be adjusted up, down and title. The tilt, up and down settings can be tension adjusted to fit the weight of the monitors attached – a must-have feature for people looking for a monitor stand that can hold three displays.
Integrated Cable Management
Package comes with clips for cable management. Move clips inward and cables will be invisible.
Features and Specs
Easy Lift and Easy Tilt for Comfortable Ergonomics
Ergotron LX Triple Display Lift Stand simultaneously lifts and tilts monitors to provide maximum ergonomic comfort. This multi-monitor stand expands your computer desktop across three smaller displays or two larger displays.
Easy and Quick to Setup
The entire package looks massive. Like other Ergotron products, each piece is packed and wrapped up tightly in a plastic or own cardboard box. Pulling each component out of the box can be a challenge. Fortunately, the package comes with a well-written eight page assembly guide to help in setup and installation. The stand isn’t light in any sense, thus, you may need a friend to help you move it around. Also, make sure you use a good quality desk that can handle the weight of the massive stand plus the monitors. Once you’re done setting it up, you won’t be moving it much.
Comes with Everything You Need
Like other Ergotron products, this model comes with all the hardware you need for setup and mount your displays, and with the help of the assembly guide, it can be put up in minutes. The stand allows you to rotate your display from landscape to portrait and vice versa while still mounted. It has nice height and tilt adjustment to help you find the perfect position and angles, while the curve gives a nice slight angle towards the center for optimum viewing angle.
Ergotron provides two sets of screws to nicely mount the monitors to the stand. Of course, each display you wish to mount should be VESA standard. One set of thumbscrews and another set of screws. Thumbscrews allow convenient mounting, but you will to use the latter on each mount to have the stand’s rotate function.
Once you have set everything together, whether you plan to have 2 to 3 monitors, you will need to adjust spring settings for height and tilt to fit to your monitors’ weight. Like other Ergotron monitor stands, this too comes with a nice allen wrench for adjusting tension and for up and down tilt function. You may need to adjust each display so you can hold them in place securely no matter where you move your monitor setup.
One of the best things about this multi-monitor is its impressive adjustability; the stand allows you to lift, tilt, rotate and even slide the monitors on its rail left to right. You can also drop your display down when you need and raise them using its lift and title functions.

The only minor flaw in this product is its inability to hold three 24inch monitors. Ergotron must clear this up to make sure no one will mistake it in the future. Also, this model also comes with quite a pricey price tag, something you would expect from a sophisticated Ergotron product. Other than that, the LX Triple Display Lift Stand is quite an impressive multi-monitor stand; it is stable and sturdy as it frees up desk space under displays consumed by three individual monitor stands.
This is perfect for people who use two to three displays. It’s quite a uniquely massive and heavy stand, thanks to its lift function. So if you’re concerned of the weight of the stand mounting on your desk, then your best option is to look for a stand without the lift function.
The ability to lift and tilt makes working with two (2) big widescreen monitors (upto two 30-inch monitors) or three (3) medium widescreen (upto three 21-inch monitors) displays ergonomically comfortable, whether you prefer to work sitting or standing. If you’re a professional gamer or you work on music or videos, or just someone looking to have a more productive and comfortable multi-monitor setup, then this one is for you.
