I'm trying to decide on a lcd arm for my 20" cinema display. I've narrowed it down to these two.

egrotron

egromart

I'm leaning toward the egromart arm just becuase I think it looks better, cleaner. But I have a nagging feeling the egrotran arm may be for funcational or practical of a design. Any one have any expierence with arms of either style or just general thoughts on them?

I have two of the Ergotron 194 arms on the way, each intented to hold a 23" display. I have yet to use them at home, but I have some at work and absolutely love them.

I would get the nice model and not skimp, because really, the entire point of having these is that you are able to move the monitors around all the time, and you want them to be easily moved, but solidly attached.

As far as comparing the brands, I have no experience with the ergomart one, but as long as it is solidly build, and you are not overweighting them, you should be okay.

I have the first one from Ergotron. It seems to do the job. I wish it moved a little easier, but other than that it seems to work perfect for the job I intended it to do originally. However I will be selling it soon since I want to get a wall mount.
