Integ blade review
Posted on 28-May-2013 16:37 by N Dunn. | Tags Filed under: Reviews.


As someone who uses multiple monitor screens (three 24” Viewsonics) at home and work, good, reasonably-priced monitor stands are hard to come by.

There doesn’t seem to be much available: you can either go for cheap and nasty, which lock your screens to a set position and are hard to adjust; if you want them moveable and easily adjustable, go straight to the ridiculously expensive end of the spectrum.

I was very keen to get my hands on a Integ Blade for review, and after two full months of daily use at work, I haven’t been disappointed (I only have one monitor on mine, they do easily support two with additional hardware).



Designed by three Kiwi guys, it’s a very solid unit and clamps well onto the end of my desk. With the addition of a couple of the arms, it can extend out quite a distance – my version can extend right out over my desk.

Cables are tidily clipped onto the monitor arms. The stand supports turning the monitor a full 360 degrees – with the use of a small bungee cord, the cables are easily kept out of the way. You will need to allow a little slack on the cables for this to work perfectly.



It also has a vertical mounting unit which gives you around 17cm of play – the unit has a counter-weight mechanism in it which make the monitor very light to slide up and down. I wasn’t able to duplicate the “fingertip vertical adjustment” as shown in the promo video, but I think this is more due to the sheer size and weight of my 24” screen.

What astounded me is you can clip two monitors onto one base, and if I had someone sitting opposite me, their two monitors could be clipped off the opposite side. I really like the fact that the Integ Blade is very modular based, so you can add/remove pieces based on your personal setup.



You really can’t go wrong with the Integ Blade – it keeps your monitors well up off the desk, and makes them easy to adjust. The only issue now is what do I do with the old programming books that I used to use, to prop up my monitors?

Disclaimer: I was given the Integ Blade to keep after this review.
