Please see this forum post regarding stand availability.

These pivot are needed for large format monitors, whose weight and/or weight distribution "overpower" the standard adjustable pivot. This could possibly include 28" and 32" 4k UHD panels, but particularly effects 34" curved ultra-wide panels.

The weight (and more importantly), the weight distribution on the curved panels pushes the center of gravity "forward" and causes the standard pivot to tip forward. This caused the panel to "tip downward".

The HD pivot is NOT NEEDED for a 5x1-Portrait setup. We will supply a normal adjustable pivot free of charge for 5x1-P users. Simply leave a comment in your order.

The monitor seems a bit light for a 34 incher. Think I could get away without purchasing it?

I'm almost 100% sure you'll still need the HD pivot. The issue is not just the weight, but the weight distribution. The curved 34" panels tend to be thicker in the middle, and then the screen curves forward on top of that. This pushes the center of gravity out in front of the pivot, adding extra downward force.
