How do i find the "weight without stand" for my monitor as well as what VESA hole pattern it has?
You can refer to the users manual of the monitor, or at the manufacturers website to find this information. What we commonly do here is go to Google and type in the model number of the monitor and then the words "weight without stand" or "VESA" and you will get the information. Some monitors are a little more difficult to find this information. Below is a resource we use to verify monitor specifications:
You can also rely on us to make sure the mount your looking at is compatible with the monitors you have; just click on "Request Support" on the lower right of your screen to submit a support ticket.
Why are curved monitor different than standard monitors?
This is because the curved monitors actually add more force to the mounting head and need a much heavier duty tilting head. Think of it this way, if you hold a 5 lb. weight to your chest, it feels like 5 lb. If you hold that 5 lb. weight straight out, it feel heavier. It's not actually heavier, its just the force that makes if feel that way. Therefore, the force of the screen on the mount makes it much heavier at the mounting point.
What happens if you put a large curved screen on a mount that says it will not support the weight?
If you choose a mount that is not rated for large curved screens, you will notice once you install the monitor on the mount it will droop down. No matter how tight you get the mounting head, the monitor tilts down to it's lowest position, or what we call drooping.
