I need my space

My home office workplace after installing the second monitor

You never have enougth space on your monitor. From the begin on it was a dream of mine to be able to open the reference documents on a different screen than the edior where i am doing the actual programming to avoid flipping between windows.
I bought during this year two "ASUS PB278Q 27" WQHD 2560x1440 monitors and a relatively cheap monitor stand ICY BOX IB-MS404-T from ICY Box.
Since i think that the pylons where the monitors are  typically mounted to are consuming quite some space on my desk I decided the use a telescope monitor stand instead of the builtin stands.

Getting the monitors installed was not this difficult then i expected since  a monitor is certainly not as heavy as they have been in 70th.  The nice thing is that i have now more space on my desk and at the same time more screen space.THe picture below shows the backside of the installation. There is not to much space wasted, in the constrary while adjusdign the monitors it turned out that i would be better if the table would have been accesible from the back.
