I own this quad monitor version:

Quad Monitor Stand. Hold 4 LCD Monitors. Desk Clamp

It is incredibly inexpensive, but I felt the quality was great, I would most certainly buy again. They have a six monitor version for $99.

EDIT: the six monitor version only goes to 21" monitors it seems
EDIT 2: this one holds six 26" monitors https://www.tykesupply.com/Products_Super_Hex_Monitor_Stand.html

Seems like a good deal, is the top bracket removeable so you could use it to hold only 2 monitors now then add more later? Thanks.

I agree with Mike, these monitor stands are rugged, quality, and affordable. On the website they have photos and videos of the variety of stands that will meet your needs. Ask for Stacy if you have any questions, she's friendly and very helpful.

I have the same ones from Tyke Supply, and they are some of the best and cheapest priced I have used over the years.

I have the quad display ones, holding 4 monitors, on my left, and 4 on my right. And then a Dual stand, holding my iMAC and a 23" over top of it, and it works great. I like how they pivot and adjust any way you dream up, and they are rugged and sturdy, I have steered many traders to these stands, and they all like them..

Wow, you trade with 9 monitors?!!! I feel inadequate, I only use 1 chart on my 17" laptop I have another monitor, but I turn it off during active trading, or I will find myself, distracted with doing other things life surfing, or tweaking code, etc. Can the human mind assimilate that much information, and be able to make quick instant decisions? As a scalper, taking on average 15-20 trades a day, that much information would fry my brain... or I would be watching 17 videos on youtube at once, haha

I actually have 10 monitors.. (but who's counting, :-)

But the way I trade, and the markets I trade, I don't have charts on all my monitors
my mac is what I have my order entry software for, so that is only for putting orders in, managing orders, etc.
I also use that to look at news, etc. forum posting, (when I am NOT trading) and general stuff, email, skype, etc.
I like to keep that separate away from my charts.

The other 8 screens are for my charts, on another computer, I run my quote windows, my strength/weakness meter, to help me decide what markets I am going to trade for that session.

I keep 1 market per monitor, but display 2 charts. The indicators I developed, and use will alert me when a potential trade signal is occurring, so I can quickly look at the chart, and quantify if it meets the min criteria as specified in my trading plan, if it does, and within my money management parameters, I enter in the market, and then follow my trading plan for trade management, and then go onto looking for the next setup.

I used to do this on 2 monitors but then quickly outgrew this setup. So more monitors is nice, so I can have all the charts up and markets that I trade up, at the same time. The type of personality I have, I have to keep my mind going and always looking at charts, keep my mind busy, so I don't get distracted with other things. this is what works for me, but of course, 1 computer screen works also, its just what works for you.

And I thought I had a lot of monitors, I recently helped a good friend and trader out with his computers, and he has 16 displays, he trades currencies, stocks, futures. He has a very nice setup, and watching him trade, he is like a machine, he has multiple order entry platforms, multiple positions at the same time, he tires me out, but he has been trading longer that I have been alive...

i`ll do, they ship to Europe (it costs about 1 stand ) but even with the high shipping costs it is cheap.

We could also order together and i`ll send 1 to you when i have received both.

Edit: shipping 2 separate is equal to shipping 2 together

That one is decent, I've used it, great for having them all lined up.

This one is similar but has more adjustment features:
Quad Monitor Stand. Hold 4 LCD Monitors. Desk Clamp

Some users dont want all the adjustable features though, but just wanted to point that out.
Let us know what you think about them.

Short review:

Order and delivery:
- Order was shipped the next day +
- Delivery to Europe in 10 day`s + for USPS and the customs here (thats fast) +

Installation:
- Installation was super easy, decent materials used. +
- Only tool that wasn't delivered was the screwdriver, but everything else was in the package so no drives to the nearest tool-shop. +

Adjustment options:
- All the screens are adjustable in every way you would expect. +
- As you can see on the picture i like to sit in a sort of cockpit of screens, the - is that the 2 screens in the middle can't be pushed to the back more.

I like the stand, modded the midscreens a bit that brought the screens about 2cm more to the back, for the price that this thing goes for i give it an decent 8

Cool, glad you like them.

What I did for my top row was physically flip the monitor 180 because the top bezel was thinner than the bottom bezel (no controls). So there is no space between any of my monitors, it's solid 100% bezel-to-bezel. Just used nvidia control panel to flip them on the software side.

If you talk to tyke about this, the stands can support larger than a 24" i have 25" on my stands at the moment, and they fit fine, and I tried 30" and they fit also..

Missing one panel. Looking for a Dell 2407 specifically.

Centre column are NEC 2470WNX
Left and Right bottom are Dell 2408
Right top is a Dell 2407.

That is why to make it right needs a Dell 2407.

Panels are driven by Nvidia NVS 285(Dual output) x16 and NVS 440(Quad output) x1

Ryanb,

Looking at the description and pictures, it doesn't look like that stand could create a cock pit like environment. Am I wrong or did you need to purchase additional parts? I'm looking to run 3 monitors in portrait with a cock pit layout but their 3 monitor stand has same description when it comes to that layout aspect.

This is my sextuplet setup.

Finally the Accell dongles came.

Do not buy any MiniDisplayPort to DVI except from ATI approved models. One of them is from Accell.

Only the Dell 2408 (bottom left and right) are DP capable. I bought the MiniDisplayPort to DP from HDMI Cable, Home Theater Accessories, HDMI Products, Cables, Adapters, Video/Audio Switch, Networking, USB, Firewire, Printer Toner, and more! I tried their MDP to DVI. It failed.

I was left to buy the approved ATI dongles and they worked.

Centres are NEC 2470WNX
Top left and right are Dell 2407

Base OS is LinuxMint 9. VMware Workstation 7.14 runs XP, Windows 7, Fedora and other exotics.

Windows XP solely for Ninjatrader alone. Metatrader 4 instances are ran from my VMware ESXi host. Accessed using RDP. Windows XP as well with 4GB RAM for the Live trading guest. Windows XP with 4GB in the Demo trading guest for testing Expert Advisors.

.

very nice... I am shooting for a similar config as well... but I moved away from six screens and went with 4 instead.. but vertical instead of horizontal. I would be using Sun Microsystems 24.1" LCD's @ 1920x1200... I like them, and I have them so not investing on new monitors this year... since I want to focus more on trading here is what I have in mind.. I have to order the tykes supply dual to make it happen..

Centres are NEC 2470WNX
Top left and right are Dell 2407

Base OS is LinuxMint 9. VMware Workstation 7.14 runs XP, Windows 7, Fedora and other exotics.

Windows XP solely for Ninjatrader alone. Metatrader 4 instances are ran from my VMware ESXi host. Accessed using RDP. Windows XP as well with 4GB RAM for the Live trading guest. Windows XP with 4GB in the Demo trading guest for testing Expert Advisors.

Nice setup. All the tech talk makes sense...but dual tape dispensers. That might be overkill.

This is my sextuplet setup.

Finally the Accell dongles came.

Do not buy any MiniDisplayPort to DVI except from ATI approved models. One of them is from Accell.

Only the Dell 2408 (bottom left and right) are DP capable. I bought the MiniDisplayPort to DP from HDMI Cable, Home Theater Accessories, HDMI Products, Cables, Adapters, Video/Audio Switch, Networking, USB, Firewire, Printer Toner, and more! I tried their MDP to DVI. It failed.

I was left to buy the approved ATI dongles and they worked.

Hello All,

I am new here and have been lurking for awhile. I'm looking for an Accell Dual DVI to MP connector to connect a third 30in monitor to an ATI 5780 card.

LordAlfa, where did you find yours from? I don't trust the MonoPrice brand and the only "official Accell" ones I found were on Ebay going for approx $100.

very nice... I am shooting for a similar config as well... but I moved away from six screens and went with 4 instead.. but vertical instead of horizontal. I would be using Sun Microsystems 24.1" LCD's @ 1920x1200... I like them, and I have them so not investing on new monitors this year... since I want to focus more on trading here is what I have in mind.. I have to order the tykes supply dual to make it happen..

Are the Sun LCDs IPS panels? Most 1920x1200 screens are IPS.

keeda,

ATI approved active dongles for MDP to DVI conversion. AMD Eyefinity Validated Dongles

For those using MiniDisplayPort.

The MiniDIsplayPort to DisplayPort cables from Monoprice are excellent and they do work very well.

Check this out! 3x Projector screen. Bezel-less, frame-less setup.

More for games but who knows. Might be my next setup.
