Bracket Style - Humanscale M7 LCD Monitor Arm

m7 t1 bracket photo

If you plan on only mounting one monitor, you have three bracket styles to choose from. T1 is the most popular. The B1 allows for some height adjustment as it can be repositioned on the post. A slim post with a B1 offers maximum "at the post end" height adjustment. The N1 is required for panel or wall mounts where you do not intend to use a post.

Arm Style - Humanscale M7 LCD Monitor Arm

Humanscale offers two different styles of arm links - standard, open link and folding link, including two different lengths for the standard link style. Each link allows for lateral (side-to-side) rotation. The 8" folding links can fold back completely with one on top of the other. The M7 arm can also be ordered without any links at all for direct mount applications that do not require the depth of a linked arm. Drawings illustrate total depth of each arm link option.

Panel Mount - Humanscale M7 LCD Monitor Arm

Panel mounts enable the user to mount the arm to a slatwall. Note that if you plan on a panel mount and a multiple monitor solution, the brand of panel you have is critical as the universal panel mount will only support one monitor. The term "row" refers to rows of monitors. If you wanted one or more monitors on top of each other, you would mount them in rows.

Post and Height Adjustment - Humanscale M7 LCD Monitor Arm

Humanscale FEA close up

Humanscale M7 link arms do not offer any height adjustability. There are three ways to add height adjustability.

  • Bracket mount- this can work well for a single monitor on a slim post if you don't need to change height often
  • Standard Adjustable post (gas cylinder)
  • Front End Adjuster (FEA) - allows you to adjust your monitor height at the front end of the arm and offers the ability to raise your monitor higher than the height of the post (this is also the easiest way to adjust the height of your monitor)

Standard Posts

Standard posts feature a large outer tube and a narrower inner pole that may or may not slide into the larger tube for height adjustment. These posts are heavy duty and great for heavier monitors or multiple monitor configurations but are only available for one row configurations. In other words, they are not suitable for applications where you want one or more monitors above another. Standard posts should be ordered according to the weight of your monitor. Standard posts are only suitable for horizontal mounting.

Standard post options include:
  • NP: no post - required for direct mount
  • SP: non-adjustable- no height adjustment

Note that which mount you select determines minimum and maximum height range of your M7 arm. Also, height adjustment range will vary depending upon your choice of mount.

Slim Post

The slim post is also designed for mounting on horizontal surfaces and is not height-adjustable but, when used with a bracket mount, the bracket can move up or down the entire length of the slim post providing for easy height adjustment. Slim posts are better for light duty and one-monitor configurations with a maximum monitor weight of 30 pounds.

Note: Maximum height is slightly less with a bracket mount.

Stackable Posts

Stackable posts can be used for multiple monitor configurations where you wish to stack monitors in rows or for a single monitor when you need a taller configuration. Stackable posts can support up to two rows of up to three monitors each. Stackable posts can be used with any mount on a horizontal surface, or with wall and panel mounts.

Options for Horizontal Mounts

  • 1H: one row stackable post
  • 2H: two row stackable post for mounting one or more monitors above one or more monitors
  • TH: top row stackable post - can be added to an existing 1h or 1v to create a second row.

Options for Vertical (Wall and Panel) Mounts

  • 1v: one row stackable post
  • 2v: two row stackable post

FEA - Humanscale M7 LCD Monitor Arm

Humanscale M7 link arms do not offer any height adjustability, so those wishing to adjust their monitor height should consider a Front End Adjuster. Positioned at the front end of the arm (just behind the monitor), an FEA offers the capability to raise and lower monitors easily. An FEA is the easiest way to adjust the height of a monitor. Humanscale's universal FEA comes in silver only and can support up to 30 lbs.

Works Great
March 6, 2009
The M7 monitor arm is very sturdy and easy to adjust. Much better than the Ergotron I replaced. Really like the folding links that fold back flush to get my monitor out of the way.

Humanscale M7 Review
March 6, 2009
I just got my M7 and it's nice, but it's harder to adjust than I expected. I didn't get the FEA, and I think I may need to add one on to move my monitor quickly- rather than getting up and adjusting the post from behind the screen.
