I'm looking for a stand that allows me to push a 27"monitor BEHIND the desk for gaming and have it forward for everything else; one with a similar design to this.

Anyone know of a stand like that?

There are plenty if you had a slightly smaller monitor. Starts getting pricey for a 27". Is this the sort of thing you are after?

I'm trying to envisage how I'd bring the monitor behind the desk using that stand. I don't think it would work.  The monitor could be pushed back as far as the desk bracket but no more.  See, this is the struggle I've been having.

I can't find any.  Remember that the stand must allow the monitor to be positioned BEHIND the desk, too; not just up to desk bracket.

Have a look here:  http://www.dynamix.co.nz/index.html?do=LCDBRAC&code=LCDBRAC

he ranges from that distributor are available from many places if you search for the part numbers, or if you like one but can't find it anywhere PM me for a price.

Note I'm not interested in competing on price so don;t ask if I can get it cheaper than anywhere else you might find in NZ.

pretty much all of those allow 360 degrees of movement of the monitor as they have dial pivioting arms.

either im missing something or your description of what you want isnt very good

I doubt if I could push a monitor back beyond the desk bracket using any of those.  Click on the link in my first post.  The concept is very basic but a stand like that is what I need.

Show me a photo of a desktop monitor stand whereby the monitor is held say... 1ft or more behind the desk.

could you please explain yourself a little more

going off your picture where is it mounting to your desk? the side, back....

those i posted could be mounted at the back of the desk and allow the monitor to come forward ~2 feet.

Jase, as well as being able to come forward 2 feet in front of the mounting point, he also wants it to go back 1 foot behind the mounting point.

I haven't seen one that can do that, you might need to make one up like your sketch, with steel tube and clamps?

monitor stand.
Sure, Jase.   The mount would be on the back of the desk.  The one shown in my drawing is only representative.   I suppose the mount could go on either side of the desk, too, depending on the reach of the extendable arm.  The point is though, the monitor can be pushed way back behind the desk or way forward. The extendable arm is so the horizontal position of the monitor can remain the same, and of course the monitor height would be adjusted at the left or right pivots.

Actually, guys. This would work, too.  I'm not sure which one I'd prefer. 

Edit:  Actually, I DO like this better.  :)

2nd option

I used the wrong word in my reply to Jase. The desk brace in my drawings is only schematic, NOT "representative".  Why did I say representative....  blimey.

Here is another range you can look at.  New to NZ.  PM me if interested and you can't find a supplier.

Most of the links provided should work, but you might have to mount the stand off to the side so the monitor can get past it. Provided the arm section that connects to the monitor is long enough to reach the edge of the monitor, you would be able to push back as far as the second section is long, (a bit like holding your phone or tablet at arms length with your hand up he back of it).
