At $369 the monitor stands might feel a bit pricey, especially when you consider that they're not going to make your computer run any faster. What you really need to know is that a monitor stand is really just a cosmetic upgrade for the most part. With that said, it does improve the amount of desk space which doesn't just look better, but is great when it comes to placing stuff on your desk.
It's very difficult to fault the Proluma stand. You could talk about the price, but what you're seeing here today is evidence that you get what you pay for. Setup is extremely easy and the quality of the unit is simply fantastic. You can really feel comfortable installing what could be $1000s worth of monitors on this stand and you need to ask yourself what's that worth?
What else you have to remember is that this is something that shouldn't need to be upgraded unless you move to monitors bigger than 24". If you've outlaid the money for three monitors, the chances are you're not going to be in a hurry to upgrade any time soon.
While Proluma might be a new name to most people, it's clear that they know what they're doing and if you find yourself thinking that this monitor stand is all good and well but it doesn't help your dual 30" setup or any other dual setup, you're going to be happy to know that they do a number of other stands to suit different setups.
At the moment the stands are currently only available to Australia and New Zealand residents. Proluma have let us know that they're looking at distribution in the US; no doubt with the product they have it shouldn't be a drama and hopefully as time goes on we see them show up in other major markets.
Eyefinity is great technology and it's nice to see that a company like Proluma can give the technology and monitors a setup that it deserves. Throw in the fact that NVIDIA are going to offer us surround gaming soon with its Fermi based cards and the market for stands like these is only going to grow.
I only use the best for my system which includes a Lian Li case, X58 based motherboard and HD 5970 to name just a few items. Added to that list today is the Proluma Triple Monitor stand. The added desk space and cosmetic improvements the stand adds is perfect and the product is that great that I would spend the money buying one myself.
