Echogear Dual Monitor Desk Mount Review

Echogear dual monitor mount review

If you’re anything like me, you hate clutter and wasted space. I do everything I can to organize cords and gadgets on my desk, but one area where it seems impossible to avoid wasted space is with the monitor. Learning to live with mounts and stands almost seems necessary when you have two screens set up … almost.

There is a solid solution with the Echogear dual monitor desk mount. The mounting system displays two monitors on one sturdy base, freeing up valuable desk real estate.

Completely setting up the mounting system took me only about 15 minutes despite the instructions attempting to take some of my attention away. The base clamps onto any desk between half an inch and 2.4 inches thick, and the adjustable arms screw into the base with a hex key. From there, all you need to do is screw your monitors onto the mount and hide the cords along the arm. Save for a Phillips head screwdriver, all the tools you need are included in the packaging. You’re probably thinking I’m oversimplifying this process, but it really is extremely easy. Honestly, you will probably spend more time taking it out of the box and plastic than you do actually assembling it.

The instructions are minimal, but there’s really not much to figure out. Its worst offense is how it patronizes gamers. It’s not a big deal because the instructions will be ignored after setup, but having to read phrases like “Power up: grab these tools from your arsenal” and items like a “nuke” being included as an optional tool for setup are distracting more than they are funny.

However, trying to cast a line that hooks the stereotypical depiction of “gamers” is easily forgiven and forgotten as soon as the mount is put together. The gas spring height adjustment lets you easily raise and lower your screens, and monitors can also be pulled forward or pushed back and tilted up or down up to 15 degrees to eliminate glare. Essentially, you will be able to find the perfect monitor position. You can even quickly switch your monitor from landscape view to portrait mode for efficient viewing of social feeds.

The Echogear mount supports screens from 10 inches to 30 inches and up to 20 pounds, and the base feels sturdy enough to handle all of these easily. My monitors are not particularly heavy, but I’d be interested to see how the spring-loaded arms handle screens closer to the 20-pound max. There’s a very slight drop that occurs when positioning the monitor that you have to account for, and it could become more pronounced with heavier screens. However, in the end, this is a minor annoyance that is easy to deal with.

Echogear brands this device as a gaming monitor mount, but its simple design makes it ideal for any type of office or home use. If you have a dual-monitor setup, the dual monitor mount is a great accessory. Whether you currently have two monitors on stands or one or both on a desk shelf, the Echogear dual monitor mount will save you a ton of space and it makes adjusting the height incredibly simple. Owners of newer gaming monitors should check to make sure they are compatible with the mount. As long as it is, be prepared to fill your newly discovered space with collectibles, gadgets and anything other than unnecessary clutter.
