    Hiya folks...

    I'm in the market for a 100mm VESA Desk/Wall Mount that's suitable for the 30" Apple Cinema Display. I already have the sub-assembly, just missing the actual fixture.

    To be completely honest, I've looked at a few but I'm not completely sure what weight capacity I should be looking for. I can tell you one thing, the 30" ACD ain't a light mother, it's actually quite heavy, perhaps it's due to the Alu shell?

    I wonder are there many people out there who might be using those? If your using one, either at work or in the home, would you mind posting your model and personal rating?

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    Look on the tech specs page at apple to get the weight of the 30". Most mounts should give an upper weight spec.

    I know ergotron's website allows you to select by brand and size - there are a few for the 30" on their website.

    Thanks for your input, but how about some other brand or manufacturer?

    anyone using the Ergotron MX desk mount? -- seems this is one of the very few made to handle the weight of the 30 ACDs

    I'm also considering the Humanscale M7, and possibly skunkworks

    any advice, ideas appreciated :D

    I have two ergotron mounts. Work great, but checking the max weight its only 18lbs. The 30" is 30lbs!

    Good luck!

    Its the neoflex. Found one on ebay for roughly 30 bucks, then the other at an officemax on sale for 20. Great deals.

    Just bought a MP 2.8x4 and an ACD, these barely hold the 23" ACD.
