I love my dual monitors, I really do. But, I HATE how much of my desk it takes up so I am switching to wall mounting. I am looking at some stuff at wal-mart (which I know Is probably the wrong place to be looking...) at wall mounts and one thing they ALL have in common is they are labeled as TV mounts.

Is their any difference between a TV mount and a comp monitor mount or are the holes drilled in the same spot?

Was looking at something like this:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Equamount-Tilt-Wall-Mount-For-10-to-37-TVs/17656696?findingMethod=Recommendation:wm:RecentlyViewedItems

Super low profile, something strong enough to support the monitor but not too big to make it difficult to mount the second monitor next to it...

The monitors are 23"

Thoughts? Are TV and computer mounts two completely different things or should I be good?

you would have to look at your monitors manuals to see if they support wall mounting or look for "supports up to size monitor 23" or lass

I have this one http://www.amazon.com/Dual-Monitor-Stand-clamp-monitors/dp/B002R9HQLI/ref=sr_1_23?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1339809235&sr=1-23&keywords=monitor+wall+mounts 23 and 19 inch monitor I love it.

yes tv and monitor are different size wall mounts

TV has different mounting points and different way of mounting them

It has the 4 drill holes in the back so I assume it supports mounting, its a Gateway monitor and its only about a year or two old.


It looks like a pretty awesome mount, however I think I want something that mounts direcly to the wall so I can back my desk up a few inches and free up that real estate.
