Such a large screen requires an equally massive stand that you have to learn to live with, as the manufacturer does not allow you to change stands. She is solid, heavy and terribly big. In my case, it takes up too much space, leaving a bit too little for mouse and keyboard. For people with larger desks, this won’t be a problem.
