    Those feet certainly are elegant but all I can think is .. When are they going to put some bloody height on these letterbox monitors? That one looks to be about 6 desktop icons high, which, to me, is next to useless.

    Completely agree - my monitor is currently set at the highest point possible on its stand which is at least twice the height of the feet on the all-in one PC. In offices where people use computers a lot the screens are sometimes wall-mounted to give extra height so your neck is more comfortable - I don't get why home screens should be any different.

    Can see you are a half glass full type of person unlike dev and Froggy.
    Extra adjustment is available as well by sawing the legs down by a couple of inches or so on the chair.
    Some folk just have no ingenual practicality. ;-)

    I guess viewing height depends on the individual. I've seen those monitors that are embedded below desk height (angled so that they face the user), seems quite good for the neck not having to be 'up' all the time. Seems more natural looking down rather than straight ahead? Never tried it myself though
