What Are the Benefits of Mounting Your Monitor?

Mounting the monitors on the wall like TVs is getting increasingly popular in offices and households alike, and there are good reasons for that as it offers a number of benefits.

1. It reduces strains on the neck and shoulders

Many users improperly set their monitors too low, high, close, or far away, and this could lead to unnecessary back, shoulder, and neck strain and eyestrain if your monitor is too close or far from your face. Mounting the monitor on the wall, then, is a great choice, because when you raise your head to look at the monitor on the wall, your upper and lower cervical vertebrae do not have to rotate as much, and the weight of your head is more equally distributed amongst your neck extensor muscles, both in the front and in the back. This balanced weight distribution, in turn, minimizes muscle stiffness and soreness.

The ideal position for a wall-mounted monitor: Have your line of sight aligned with the upper edge of the monitor.

2. It saves space

Using a monitor mount is not only efficient, but it saves you a ton of space. If you have a table with a laptop, setting up the monitor on the wall will save you a significant amount of space.

3. It is aesthetically pleasing

With proper installation and arrangements, monitor wall mounts can also minimize how much of the cables and wires for your monitor are exposed, which helps make your desktop look neat and tidy.

BenQ’s newest E series and G series all support wall mount features. The following five easy steps will teach you how to mount your monitor on the wall and create your own personal entertainment center in 10 minutes.

Precautions

•Install your monitor and monitor mounting kit on a wall with flat surface.

•Ensure that the wall material and the standard wall mount bracket (purchased separately) are stable enough to support the weight of the monitor.

1. Check the back of your monitor and see if it has a VESA mount with 100mm pattern, allowing the installation of a wall mount bracket.

2. Remove the monitor stand: Lay the screen face down on a clean and well-padded surface. While pressing and holding the quick release button, detach the stand from the monitor.

3. Remove the screws on the back cover: Use a cross-pointed screwdriver to release the screws on the back cover.

4. Use four M4 x 10 mm screws to fix a VESA standard wall mount bracket to the monitor. Make sure that all screws are tightened and secured properly.
