Default Triple Monitor Stand

Im looking for a good, sturdy and Cheap triple monitor stand for 3 22' monitors. Any suggestions? The only one I can find is over 200, which is not worth it. Thanks.

I have limited desktop space and I cannot find a desk that will work with me. Having them all on the desktop would be my first option, trust me. I need a stand, not a mount.

I think wall mounting it makes the most sense as it will be cheaper. Other than that though you're looking for 200+ for what you really want.

on a wall mount? I'd go hit up bestbuy tbh and just get the cheapest wall mount for your monitor size. They should all be VESA standard mounts along with your monitor so you shouldn't run into compatibility issues. I'd price out what you want as a standard flat mount has no movement, a tilt mount tilts up and down and cantilever moves in and out and goes up and down and all that fun stuff. but it seems like just a flat mount or tilt mount makes sense, but tilt mounts are more expensive. Generally you can get a straight flat mount for like under 25 bucks, but you're still looking at around 100, probably less for all 3.

Thanks. I think I found the way im going to go. I will use 2 of these (Newegg.com - ERGOTRON 45-179-195 LX Desk Mount LCD Arm (black) - Monitor Accessories) attached to the back of the desk on each side of the monitor sitting on the desktop. What do you think about it?

I though you said you didn't want to spend $200+. I would build my own they are very simple to do and using springs you can make a mechanical arm that makes the monitor seem weightless look into the steadicam designs for videocameras.

I would get this if buying retail
Newegg.com - Targus AWE33US Ergonomic Dual LCD Display Arm - Monitor Accessories
