Has anyone run a setup with a 34" ultrawide center, and two 27" monitors on the sides, one landscape and one portrait? I'm trying to figure out if this version of the stand will work for that idea, or if I need to try other options.

You need the Mini Mega for this setup.

If I shrunk to 24/25" monitors for the configuration, would the Ultimate stand be enough? Also, since the availability thread says that there won't be stands in stock until mid-December, is there much reason to place an order through the store before then?

If you go to 24" or 25" on the sides the regular Ultimate will work. I'll have a few more available this next week, as I build up some complete stands from spare parts. I'll have five new kits, and two with a scratch and dent discount. After those are gone, I will start an Out of Stock sale, that will give $25 off.

So my parents monitor died and I'm giving them one of my 27 inch panels.

This prompted me to buy a z35p Ultrawide and it's on its way here.

I currently have an Ultimate Edition stand (v1, but that shouldn't change the bar/mounts) with a 27" BenQ GW2765, 27" Acer XB270HU, 27" BenQ GW276 landscape setup.

I'm giving them one of the BenQ panels so my new setup will be 27" BenQ GW276, 35" Acer z35p, 27" Acer XB270HU


Now I know for sure that isn't going to fit all landscape and even if it did I wouldn't have room on my desk for it anyways so my current plan is to turn the two 27" panels to portrait instead of landscape and have the 35" one in the middle. This might work but it looks like it's going to be close.

Has anyone here done a setup like this before?


My last ditch effort would be to just put everything on single monitor arm mounts (probably 3 of these) which would make it easier to move stuff around but I have this Ultimate Edition stand that I'd prefer to use. My desk is a sit/stand desk and this thing is rock solid. It doesn't move at all when I raise/lower the desk where I'd worry about the single monitor arms moving all the time when the desk moved.

I think it will work. All depends on the specifics on the bezel size and weight. I did a 34" flanked by two 25" in portrait, and had plenty of room on the bar. You can see the details here.

Well I got it up and running.

It fit with room to spare on the bar in this config but man, PLP seems to have it's own quirks and issues.

Sure those side monitors are fantastic for reading reddit or forums on with all that vertical real estate but I would so much rather have them be landscape that I may have to rethink my entire desk setup.

It's an acquired taste, but I did grow to like it.

Figured I'd try a landscape setup and it fits... barely.

It pushes this stand to its limit. Not sure if I'll keep it this way or if it's even advisable to keep it this way. I do have the stand bolted through the desk so that's helping. I doubt this would work with the included metal plate stand (or that I'd trust it).

I had to push my computer case farther back but luckily there was room and it's rather small compared to my old case where this would never have fit.
