RAISEDErgonomically, the top of the viewable area of the monitor should be no
higher than your eyes. Unless you've got a desk with a recessed monitor
enclosure, this means that it's tough to adjust any monitor so that you
view it comfortably for more than a few minutes at a time.
It also means that "height adjustability" in a monitor is a useless
You need to move the monitor down, not up, so increasing the monitor
at all is less than useful. -Dave
This seems to confirm what I've learned by trial and
error as well
I've ALWAYS thought monitors were too high!!
Well, you've always been right, and now you know why. Interesting side
note...next time you go to an office supply superstore, check out the
furniture section, and see how many computer desks you can find with
monitor platforms. Ergonomically, these desks are upside down. You needto
lower the monitor, so a raised platform for a monitor is a really REALLYbad
idea. But you will find at least 5-10% of computer desks sold have the
raised monitor shelf. -Dave
not if you're 6'8". your eyes should be centered on the middle of the
monitor with your head in a neutral position. For me in a wheelchair (which
sits higher than most chairs) my 21" monitor has to be raised 3 1/2 inches.
