Hello,
I'm new to the group and am sorry if I missed this question placed some where else.
I currently have 3 monitors (ASUS VN247H-p) running 3X1L and am eventually planning on getting 2 more of them so I can go 5X1P. In my book, I don't care about 4K, I want 5400X1920. But for right now 5760X1080 isn't bad, and I still need to see how 3240X1920 looks. Now, I just need to replace my crappy monitor stand I started out with back when I bought my 20" AOC TN panels.

Now to the big question, which stand do I start with, or do I just jump straight to the Ultimate? I didn't know if my 3 24" monitors would fit on the triple stand since they are 24" or if I wou;d need the XL upgrade and since I would need the 5 segment bar, do I just go ahead and order the big kit so I have everything I need already? All opinions are welcome. Thank you in advanced.

You want to go with the Ultimate. You'll have the short pole with three pivots for your current setup. When you're ready to do 5x1-P, you'll have the other two. If you go 3+1 as an interim setup, then you'll have the tall pole for that. If you go with the smaller "regular" triple, then upgrade, it will be more expensive. Also, upgrade parts aren't always in stock.

I would love to purchase the mount on the far right hand side of this image:

How much would it be? Who should I pay?
Shipping in the tut to NZ looks like $400.

Thanks.

We used to carry it in the store, but only sold one out of a couple of years. I can put it back in there for you. The cost of the stand is $449. I believe the shipping will be $200, but I will need to double check with Ergotech. I don't stock this stand directly. They drop ship it.

Note that the stand will only hold 24" - 25" (with thin bezel) monitors. If you want larger, you'll need the WSGF Ultimate, and then add a 5x1-P upgrade kit. This will get you two bars and enough pivots for six panels.

If you get the "Hex" with the telescoping arms, it can hold some 27" panels, but it wasn't designed for it. You can check out the review that Linus Tech Tips did on the Triple w/ Wings, and how it barely holds the newer 27" panels.

I'll double check on the shipping on the Hex for you.

With the telescoping arms, the price is going to go up. You will be at the price of the WSGF Ultimate + extra bar. I would direct you to this forum thread, where a customer from Australia upgrades from the telescoping arm to the 5-segment arm (which is used in the WSGF Ultimate).

http://www.wsgf.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=93&t=26888

Given my experience, and his direct comparison of the two - I would recommend the product designed by the WSGF. It's sturdier, and will allow for more upgrade options in the future.
