How to wall mount without VESA??

Hi,

I just bought three Samsung S23A300B monitors for Eyefinity. So far so good, for the most part, but I started looking at triple monitor mounts. The problem is that these monitors have the absolute cheapest mounts possible that allow basically no tilt or swivel or height adjustment. I didn't realize that there was a mounting standard, nor that some companies would choose to ignore it (wtf!).

So, basically, all the multi monitor mounts use VESA and my monitors are not compliant. What can I do? Is there some sort of adapter? I can live with them as is, but it's annoying.

There are adapters out there, need to match one for your hole locations though, check online for your model. Ebay usually works.

Well I'll check eBay for an adapter, but the problem with these monitors is that they don't have any rear mounting brackets or screws or anything. Only a snap in neck at the bottom.

i'm not familiar with your particular model but as you stated vesa is the standard mounting pattern. as stated also there are adapters available to fit different mounting hole patterns.

however, the lack of any mounting holes does pose a problem. are you absolutely sure? double check the manual to make sure you didnt miss some. if there are no holes it might be possible to DIY make some if there is a metal backplate inside but that is very risky and is a do this at your own risk project. if you dont want to chance it then i suppose you could put a shelf on your wall and sit the monitors on it but i suppose that lacks the elegance you desire!

not much else i can say but look before you buy.

This is the back:



I'd consider returning them for a set that has VESA mounting, but the deal I got on these is too good to pass up lol.

I might just have to use some uber 3M double sided tape or something and just stick them onto the bracket when I finally get a monitor stand haha.

Although I did notice that the clip in part at the bottom is attached with a screw into a metal plate, I'm guessing I can take that off. Maybe I can get a sort of L bracket fixture.

Anyway, thanks for the help!

roughsand and gorrilla glue! kidding...but that stuff is seriously strong.

an L bracket would be perfect if you can make one up. it might be hokey looking but after its attached, bolted, taped/glued, etcetera it should be stable enough for regular use.

that said....what a crappy back panel....no holes at all!

The first clue that it can't be mounted, look at how the ports are, instead of under the back edge, they are directly on the back where the cables will be hitting the wall. Looks like it was just made to be a cheaper home model.

yeah. i saw that. doesnt mean you couldnt have it far enough away from the wall so that it would work, or use it with a desk-clamping monitor mount and just cut away the mount where it overlaps.

impossible to mount, no. worthwhile, maybe not.....

Well, I wasn't really going to wall mount them. I was looking at those triple monitor stands, that clamp onto the desk.

Anyway, it's not a big deal right now. Seems that whatever happens it'll be DIY ;)

I know you weren't 100% serious, but after reading your comment, that's exactly what I did!

I bought some gorilla glue and a VESA mounting adaptor like this. After sanding the monitor and glueing the adaptor to it, I could attach it to my mounting stand. It's been a few weeks now and going strong! :)

I am looking to employ the same situation, and wondering how the monitors are holding up?

Thanks!

Thanks for the information

I have one Samsung 27" on my desk, received as a present

Looking for a second monitor, for my second home workstation that must be wall mount

These are home monitors, too good to pass up (<$250), however the base mount wobbles

Sounds like gorilla glue is the best option unless someone can point me to a monitor of similar quality with wall mounts around $250

Hope you can all read this, am looking at the same problem while considering buying an AOC i2367fh (check it out its damned nice)... issue is:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/AOC-I2367FH-Widescreen-Multimed...

She's got a nice rear end but there aint holes where there's supposed to be holes :??:  Might not have sounded right but it doesn't now... gorrila glue, not sure I'll trust it after a few months of wear and tear, condensation etc... most of these things come with a stand so at least in my case I figure I'll work from there, attaching a plate to the stand in some way, then connecting the plate to a swivel bracket.

Thought that was so nifty. I'm so proud of myself right about now I could :sweat:  :sweat:  :sweat: 

Peace

I'm in the same boat and was thinking of using Gorilla glue myself by bonding some thicker plastic then attaching the vesa mount to that with screws. Aare they still in one piece?
