    I'm looking for some wisdom from the collective of bit-tech about a monitor mount for 2 x LG 24BK750Y and one LG 29UM68-P for a triple monitor mount that doesn't break the bank. I've read through every question and answer on Amazon for this (Ebay was cheaper by £5 as it had free postage) and no-one seemed to be able to say definitively that it will/won't work - my head says it should as 2 x 24 + 1 x 29 ultrawide is less width that 3 x 27 inch monitors.

    Does anyone know of someone who has done similar with 2 x 24 and 1 x 29 ultrawide??

    All i can find is 21/22 inch flanking a 25 inch ultrawide.

    My desk is more than big enough to have them on stands and they match pretty well due to full stand adjustment (up/down/tilt and rotate) and a more or less matching bezel arrangement/screen height on the 24bk750y. I'd just like them higher without riser stands/books under them and be able to arrange my speakers symmetrically under them.

    Pic included for clarity to show what it looks like currently.

    I dug around some more on this and on the Domu website of all places found the answer i sought - someone claims to have mounted a 34" ultrawide between 2x22" widescreen monitors and it works fine..... apparently. Will let you know tomorrow when it arrives from Amazon prime and it's all set up in my office.

    Works just fine, need to fiddle around leveling them a little more and tightening things up a tad but it frees up vast amounts of space and lets me put my speakers underneath the monitors :clap:

    Just so you know mate you're not speaking to yourself, I just had no experience of doing a setup like this.

    Always nice to see a plan come together :thumb:

    Hopefully will work now - I have no idea how i managed to embed the first pic but cannot do the same with the second pic and have had to put it in an album (but forgot to change the permissions!)
