Simple, elegant, Off of the desk.

I'm looking to mount eventually 2 Catleap 2B Extreme OC Monitor's, currently only have 1.

I've found a few companies that offer products but damn they are expensive.
1) http://www.humanscale.com
2) http://www.aavara.com
3) http://www.ergotron.com

The 1st 2 seem to have Dual 27" capable mounts.

I'm pretty sure I'd prefer a single Mounting arm that can be anchored to the wall versus one that sits on the desk.

However, I suppose I could go with 2 Single Mounting arms, each mounted about a foot apart or the distance between 2 Studs in the wall apart.

At 27" it may be better to go with 2 Single Mounting arms.

Has anyone done this?

Are these VESA mount compatible? I haven't looked at the back of the monitor in detail just yet, at work right now.

What did you use for your Arms?

Pics?

I know that people here have posted before that they replaced the stand, in fact there are even a few topics about it:

And you can probably find way more.

What I find interesting is this Ebay listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-27-Inch-2560x1440-Monitor-Pivot-Stand-for-Yamakasi-Achieva-Potalion-/140795611232?pt=US_Monitor_Mounts_Stands&hash=item20c8128860

This seems like a pretty nice stand for a not all that high price, but then again I haven't really looked around much. What I'm gonna try is to use my current stand that came with my Samsung 2343BW if the stand is really crappy like people are saying. This is a pretty nice stand although I would have to mod it a little bit in order to proper use it as a vesa stand. Only the top 2 screws are uncovered by default but that seems to be enough to hold this monitor (~5.5KG) without any problems.
Does anyone have experience with this?

I have seen the removal thread.

I'm not looking for a Stand, I'm looking for Arm Options.

It's basically the same thing though, just be sure to get one with 100x100mm VESA holes support (out of the top of my head) that can support the weight of this monitor.
Btw the part about the stand was just my little situation/opinion/thought and wasn't meant as a solution for you.
