I want to get a good articulating arm for my 22" monitor that is desk mount and at least 18" length. I got one from Office Depot rated to hold up to 18 pounds, but couldn't hold up my 11 pound monitor after 2 weeks.

If anyone knows about or uses a good quality arm, please let me know what it is.

Thanks.

This is the one I bought that failed on me.

It was inexpensive and I guess you get what you pay for, but my monitor wasn't even close to the weight limit! I'm hoping someone can recommend a good one to buy online as this is the only thing I could find in local brick and mortar stores and I don't want the headache of making a return through the mail from an online purchase.

Woah, so no need for the stand, then?

That's a sweet invention but I don't know if I trust it.

Ouch! Pretty salty: $200-$300 and up. That's pretty close to the price of my monitor! I appreciate the link though! They look like a good company with reliable products. Maybe I can track down some discounts.
