Hi. I have a 39" Vizio E390-B0 TV (gross weight with stand: 16 lbs) which I am happy with and it has a four holes for a 100mm by 100mm VESA mount behind the V logo. I want to have the ability to tilt my screen back so that I can make use of a webcam that I plan to buy which sits on top of the monitor (it's a TV but I wish it didn't came with a built-in TV tuner which I never use). I could go for a desk mount but the arm from the back of the desk will have to be about 20" long, as my eyes are about 4 to 8" away from the screen, which is perfect at a resolution of 1920x1080 for my visual impairment. Plus, the arm from the mount should not restrict the height of the center speaker which is about 10 to 12" and the height of my center speaker which sits above the pad is about 10" as well, so I would like to consider something Mount-It! Articulating Single Arm Computer Monitor Desk Mount for 27-Inch Monitors as not an option (and it's only for 27" diagonal max). And besides, having a desk mount like that looks kind of ugly to me.

So it has to be something like a stand for a 100mm VESA mount, which has a base to put on top of my desk. It does not have to swivel from left to right, but I want to raise and lower the monitor just a bit, and not only that, being able to tilt back if I want to use a webcam, or straight forward if I want to watch a movie.

Are there any monitor stands that you can list that fit with my criteria? My budget will probably be about 50 dollars, but if it's too low, I would say about $100.

Check this one out and see if it fits the bill. I don't think this one does is Height adjustments... Hmmm

I used TinyURL because it was a long link from Walmart.

There seems to be two options and the first one has the 100mm x 100mm VESA.

Can this be put in a desk if I rig up two pieces of wood? 132 pounds maximum weight is way too overkill. Maybe I will find something that is designed for 50 pounds or less.

If I do buy two pieces of wood and paint it black, maybe I could use it, as I don't want to wall-mount. I want my 40" monitor to sit in a desk. Will this work?

EDIT: Maybe something like Universal TV Stand/Base but with the ability to tilt up and down.

EDIT 2: Ah, I found something after a long search! LEVEL MOUNT Adjustable Desk or Tabletop Mount for 10-40 inch Screens ELDM

This mount can tilt up to 15 degrees, which is exactly what I need -- well, almost exactly, as I'm not sure if it's height-adjustable or not. What a nice find, though. What keywords I have used are:

I'm using this one from Cheetah Mounts: http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B002MYQTEI/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It also doesn't allow easy height adjustment (you have to take the TV off and realign the mounting bracket), but it is ROCK SOLID, and my 39" Seiki 4K display stays exactly where I set it. No weight creep on the angle adjustment (I keep my monitor with a 5° forward incline). I opted for this one because of the double-arm tether, I figure it would better tolerate kids and their nonsense.

I have it mounted through the drywall and insulation into the concrete blocks in my lower level. I would see no problem mounting it to a wooden 2x8 on the back of a desk.

I will have to rig a piece of wood on top of a desk (I may have to take off the keyboard stand as I can't get it to slide out anymore) while not blocking the center speaker's tweeter.

Thanks. I will see what I can do and make use of your suggestions.

As a reminder: My screen will have to be very close to me as I sit about 4 to 8 inches away from the screen.

Update: What about Mount-it! ALAMLB? It can handle up to 55 pounds even though mine only weighs 13 pounds and even though it says 'up to 37",' that's very close to 39", so I don't think it's that bad. If you take the first picture in Amazon, I could move the arms vertically; thus, adjusting the height of a monitor. I think this will work if I add 18" of 2-by-8-inch wood and attach it to a 12x8" wood; thus, forming a height-tilt-adjustable TV stand. Will this work once I paint the wood black?

Here's what a TV stand looks like that is ready for VESA mount. Excuse the image quality, as it took a long time to get it rendered using Blender.

But the problem I have is I don't have necessary woodworking tools like a drill and saw to cut it to my wants.

Not unless I can find a reputable woodworking shop in Tallahassee. Perhaps I might ask Lowes or Home Depot to see if they know of a reputable place and discuss my wood requirements.

Thanks.
