I really like my multitouch Dell SX2210T monitor . I have also used one by HP and 3M. The Dell was the best price point for my home use. One problem it has though is that it doesn’t work with a standard VESA mounting configuration; Dell does not offer any sort of adapter. So I did what any sensible person would do. I went ahead and designed my own. I’ve been looking for a good reason to use Ponoko , sale which is an amazing fabrication service, tadalafil
and this fit perfectly.

If you want you can purchase my VESA universal mounting adapter plate from Ponoko

The above bolt pattern is something like 35mm from center to center of each one. Which is a bit smaller than the smallest 50mm VESA standard.

I searched all around for a universal plate that would do the trick and I couldn’t fine a single option out there, visit this site
that would do what I wanted. A few people online suggested drilling holes in a standard VESA plate, which is an okay option but that would leave me with something that was modified specifically for this monitor. I thought it might be better to have something that was slotted so that it could work with a larger range of setups.

Here is a photo of the plate mounted to the monitor and the VESA mounting plate mounted to my adapter.

The whole thing works great for me.

  1. Ryan, I have a Samsung BX2450, and I love the monitor, but it has one gaping problem…  there is no VESA mount plate on the back at all.  While trying to find a universal clamp on mount, or something similar, I stumbled on your product.  Is it possible to modify this item so that it clamps on to the top/bottom of the monitor? 

    As I would not like to physically alter the backing of the monitor, which would also include reemoving the back, I’m hoping to find something along the lines of what you’ve designed.

    1. Just the plans at this time. You can use the plans to then order the actual plate from Ponoko.

  2. I love your idea. But, I have a monitor that has no screw holes to use. Did you happen to come upon a mounting that would allow the monitor to be ‘clamped in’. This hunt is very frustrating. It’s an HP monitor that seems to have been totally designed for desktop only use.

    If you have any input and/or URLs you could point me to would be very helpful.
