    Does anyone here have one of these and know how to take the part that attaches to the base off? Because I have just mounted it with an arm to the desk and it would be heaps sleeker if it didnt have that poking out the bottom.

    I have pictures of the setup here if I am not making any sense have a look at those.

    Cheers

    just looked at mine and it looks to be behind the rear facia so you would need to remove that at a guess...pretty silly design

    I purchased two Acer 22" LCDs, both arrived on time and installation was easy. Zero dead pixels and setting up dual dvi display with extremely simple. Removing the stand was a challenge took me about 15mins and a phone call to Acer before I could remove the stand and mount my dual LCD arm. To remove the stand pull off the cover on the back above the moveable joint (its a rectangle piece). Pull upwards and it'll stap off exposing 4-6 screws that you remove. After that you can flush mount you LCD to the wall or use a LCD arm to suspend your screen in mid-air, very good space saver. My screens are side by side about 6 inches in the air enough room to put my speakers, usb hub, backup drives, etc underneath.

    cheers I just followed those instructions then and it worked perfectly! Thanks for that. I couldnt pull it that cover out however a flat-head screwdriver popped it out in about 1 sec, best thing is it will all go back on very easily if I ever need to. Thanks for that
