From other Phoronix articles when seeing photos of my monitor setup, one of the frequent questions come down to my monitor stands. The quad-monitor and dual-monitor setups are using Tyke Supply monitor stands. These are not Ergotron stands! While Ergotron dominates the monitor mount/stand industry, I have been extremely impressed by these Tyke Supply monitor stands. These were not sent over as review samples or anything, but I had in fact discovered them on Amazon and then bought them. These stands cost a fraction of any Ergotron mount while having nearly the same feature-set, constructed out of metal, etc. They are terrific and I highly recommend the Tyke Supply LCD stands. I bought the quad and dual LCD stands almost two years ago and they are still working phenomenally with no complaints at all. The price can't be beat with the quad LCD stand at the time retailing for just about $60 USD, which is much lower than you can find of an Ergotron stand or from most other vendors. There is my Tyke Supply Dual LCD Monitor Stand review from November of 2010, but never managed to finish writing the quad LCD stand review, except it is great! On the quad LCD stand are two 1920 x 1080 panels, one 1680 x 1050 panel, and a 1920 x 1200 HDMI panel.

Mounted on top of the dual LCD Tyke Supply stand is an Arctic Z1 monitor stand. It works out pretty well, although I do not use that 1280 x 1024 VGA panel too much unless testing some awkward driver/hardware combinations or when using some of the DisplayLink adapters. The Arctic stand itself continues to work fine.

The two notebook stands where the notebooks are "off the desk" are from Fellowes. These adjustable notebook stands work very well and am quite pleased with them after nearly two years in use. These were other affordable and reliable notebook stands found on Amazon.
