I'm trying to get a computer set up for the kids so they don't touch mine any more... I've got the spot for it, but it's at their desk where they do craft stuff. So I'd rather not just sit a monitor on it (the computer is up high on a shelf next to the desk).
I have an old 19" LCD I'm going to use for them, but I need a mount. Ideally I'd like something that can put the monitor at the proper height for them to use and then raise it up out of the way when they're not using it. Wall mount would be great, desk mount would work too as long as it got high enough.
I've looked at monoprice and didn't see anything quite like I wanted. So far the best I've come up with is using an arm like this (http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=109&cp_id=10828&cs_id=1082808&p_id=7561&seq=1&format=3#specification) but I don't really wanna spend $70. I've got an arm similar to this (http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=109&cp_id=10828&cs_id=1082802&p_id=4854&seq=1&format=2) - I'll have to check if it can be tightened enough to turn the whole arm 90 degrees so it moves vertically rather than horizontally.
Anyone got a better (cheap!) suggestion?
