REVIEW: Ergotron Neo-Flex Stand LCD Part 3
A plastic mounting cross is included with the stand for use with any LCD monitor that has a sunken VESA75 fitting on the back. The cross helps maintain the appropriate distance between the stand and the monitor.
Mounting cross for use with sunken BESA75 fittings.
We used a 22-inch ViewSonic VX2255wmb as a sample monitor to test the Ergotron Neo-Flex. According to the manufacturer, the stand is suitable for use with monitors weighing between 2,7 kg and 7,3 kg (weight of monitor without stand!). The screws included should be suitable for the vast majority of monitors, but it can happen that they do not fit your monitor – as happened with out test monitor.
Since the screw holes on the test monitor’s VESA100 fitting were protected with rubber pads and the screw threads were relatively deep as a result, the screws that came with the stand were either too short or too long: the M4 x 10 mm were too short and the M4 x 25 mm were too long. Therefore, we had to buy suitable screws in a DIY shop – but this only cost a few cents.
Left picture: maximum and right picture: minimum height setting. The distance between table and underside of the monitor depends on the monitor. The VX2255wmb can be lowered until it touches the base and in that position, the distance to the table surface is 1,8 cm.
Once the base is attached, the new ergonomic functions can be used: height adjustment with a range of 12,7 cm, a rotating ring with a range of 270 degrees (135 degrees right and left) built into the base, A tilting mechanism of up to five degrees forwards and 25 degrees backwards and lastly, a pivot function.
The base offers a rotation range of 135 degrees left and right.
