Product Comparison: Triple Monitor Mount: Ergotron vs. Amer
How does Amer compare to Ergotron?
Disclaimer: All of the information on this page was provided by the supplier (Amer Mounts).
What does this Mean?
Price: The AMR3S is Priced Lower than the ALL of the comparable Ergotron models!
Screen Size: (The size of screen that can be supported) The AMR3S is the ONLY model that supports 24" monitors!
Amer is First in screen size.
Mass per Monitor: (The amount of mass that the mount can hold per monitor, in pounds.)
When ensuring the strength of the Triple Monitor Mount, the AMR3S's Max Mass was more than double that of the test monitors! (22.5" and 7.85 lbs)
Amer is a safe second 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. The first Ergotron model is not pole based and has a maximum height (up to where the mount connects to the monitor), of 16.1 inches from the desk.
Amer has a larger pole than the 200 model and is therefore second in Maximum Height allowed.
Tilt: (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 .
Rotation: Basically, clockwise or counterclockwise rotation (except for the 33-299-195 which allows portrait or landscape).
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, with fixed tilt or no individual adjustment, you can't.Amer has an excellent range of adjustment and is therefore First in Individual Monitor Adjustment.
