VESA desk Mount for 40"

Hi everyone,
I purchased an 4k 40" Monitor last year. (AMH A409U)
I now thought about getting a monitor arm for this Monitor. Never did this. Have no idea.
The Monitor seams to have a 200mm x 200mm VESA Mount.
But the main problem is its size and weight.
Size (Stand) 898(W) x 560(H) x 230(D) mm
Size (Stand X) 898(W) x 508(H) x 60(D) mm
The weight ranges from 5 to 16,3 kg depending on different websites. WTF ???
I just weighed it and got 12,6 kg.



As said, i have no idea. I just know i want something to move the
monitor up/down and mainly tilt the way i want it. I have the table in front of an window.
So a wall mount is not an option.
But i also want to be able to move the Monitor back into the window whole, so that i have free desk space when i work there.

Also i am thinking about putting my cheap Benq V2200 Eco ET-0035-N on a VESA
mount too.
Thats just an 1080p 21,5" monitor i would use to put stuff like discord, ts3 etc on.
Would need to have 90° Rotation through.
( Flat Panel Mount Interface 100 x 100 mm )
Do you recommend using a separate arm or use a mount with 2 arms?

So far i found this while googleing.

I don't know if this is any good and if it is the best option for me

I have two of those with 24" displays, I would not put anything bigger on them.

Hmm ok,
do you know of any alternatives?
Is it even possible to get a monitor arm for a 40"?
Drilling a hole into the desk wouldn't be a problem

I know that @wendell uses pretty heavy duty stuff and I think he might have some 40" on arms, but I don't remember the brand.

Thanks. That info was helpful. Found this old video
He uses spaceco monitor arms.
Lets see what there have. I just need a little less crazyness.

And its over 600 USD in the configurator. Way to expensive. Sh...ame

I would suggest the Ergotech Freedom Arm HD (FDM-HD-S01). Its made to take a good amount of weight. Depending on the mounting of the VESA holes on the back you can figure out how much reach it will have.

nope sorry. Vesa mount to small and also max. supported weight to low. I need more

The Ergotech Freedom Arm HD (FDM-HD-S01) is good for weight up to 30.8lbs and you can easily adapt a 100x100 VESA to 200x200 VESA or any size for that matter......

That one looks like a fancied up version of the ergotron I have. I bet it is mechanically the same thing.
Trust me, you do not want a 40" monitor on this one. 24" is fine, 27 is fine, 32 has to be on the lighter side, anything bigger is a nope.

Im not sure what model you have but this one is made to hold up certain iMac models which is why it has a higher weight capacity. The Ergotech Freedom Arm HD was able to hold up a Sony XBR43X830C, a 43in 4K TV mounted to a desk. That TV also had 200x200 VESA mount which I adapted to the 100x100.

Mine is the Ergotron LX which theoretically can hold up to 11.3Kg. I had a Samsung 34" curved ultrawide mounted to it for a while and yes, it will hold that. But I would not recommend that.

And by the way, the mentioned 40" display seems to be quite a bit heavier than your tv.

Ok i'm a bit frustrated.
The only real option for this size i found is from spaceco.
That looks massive enough to support this.
But the prize is way to high for me. An 1 Arm 400+ and an 2 Arm 650+ USD.
I guess i will put it on hold for now.
I don't want to spend much more than 350. Originally i thought it would be around 120€. Than 180, 200 and ah fuck it 250 €
Well as i've said. I have no idea of Vesa mounts. But now i know, these are expensive as hell. I was to naive i guess.

That rings a bell, I think that is the stuff Wendell uses.

it is. As mentioned above. I think thats the only real solid solution for big monitors.
At least i think so after 5+h of googeling.
For small monitors there many alternatives. But i don't want to push the limits of that monitor arms.

If you really want to stay low cost, use a wall-mount arm like this. They hold a hell of a lot of weight for a negligible price. The only prerequisite is facing a wall :P
