Disclaimer: All information on this page provided by the supplier (Amer Mounts).

So What Does This Mean?
Price: The AMR2SU is Priced Less than the ALL comparable Ergotron models!

Screen Size: **Very important! The Peerless mount may support the SIZE of a 30 inch monitor, but not the WEIGHT.** 
Based on our research, their base is not even strong enough to support some 27" monitors, let alone a 30"! (Our research at the bottom of this page)
The next regular size of monitor is 24", which coincidently, is the size of monitor supported by the AMR2SU!
Amer is a close Second in this regard.

Mass per Monitor: The amount of mass that the mount can hold per monitor, in pounds.
When ensuring the strength of the Dual Monitor Mount, the AMR2SU's Max Mass was more than Triple that of the test monitors! (22.5" and 7.85 lbs)
Amer is clearly First in maximum supported weight.

Maximum Height/Pole Height: With a pole based mount, you attach a ring around the pole to secure the monitor. 
The higher the pole, the higher the monitor can be. Amer's pole allows for a 13" height adjustment, more than the Peerless mount.
Amer is First in Maximum Adjustable Height.

Tilt: This is the amount of adjustment one can make to the positioning of the screen. 
This is an incredibly important aspect when dealing with multiple monitors. Free angles provide a comfortable and productive work environment.
Amer is First in the amount of tilt provided as Peerless provides no tilt.

Rotation: Basically, clockwise or counterclockwise rotation.
Amer is tied for First in Rotation Ability.

VESA Support: VESA is the standard of mounting holes in your monitor. All of the mounts are VESA compatible.
Amer is tied for First in this regard.

Individual Monitor Adjustment: This is very important in a multiple monitor mount. If you have several different sized monitors and would like to adjust the height accordingly, or would like to angle your screens to a more acute or obtuse size (or even adjust for glare), 
with fixed tilt or no individual adjustment, you can't.
Amer has an excellent range of adjustment and as a result, First in Individual Monitor Adjustment.

In summary, the AMR2SU is a stronger product of incredible value
We'll leave it up to you to decide which is better but there is a clear difference in quality, and adjustability.

These are just examples to show that the mount is not always reliable.
Many companies do not publish monitor weight online and we did not review all those that do.


***The net weight of a product is the gross weight minus packaging. ASUS packaging is between 2 and 4 kg (as judged by other monitors). 
​The gross weight of the PA279Q is 14 kg, this puts the net weight of the monitor at minimum 10 kg (or approx. 22 lbs).
