This gorgeous triple-monitor stand can hold three 22-pound displays

Racing game fanatics and flight sim aficionados are always looking to find the ultimate wraparound, fully immersive gaming experience in terms of PC monitors. The new Monoprice Dark Matter triple monitor stand is one of the most interesting takes we’ve seen on that kind of a setup.

Monoprice claims the Dark Matter Triple Monitor Stand can handle three 32-inch monitors weighing up to 22 pounds each. We haven’t tested the stand for ourselves yet, but that’s quite an impressive claim.

But at first glance, the stand looks solid. It’s an all-metal floor stand with foldable side-mounting arms, which allow you to angle the side monitors how you need. There are also built-in cable-management clasps to keep your wires secured to the metal stand, which is a nice touch.

The stand supports four VESA mount sizes — 75 x 75, 100 x 100, 200 x 100, and 200 x 200. You can collapse both side mounts and hang a single monitor on the center, up to 49-inches, but it cannot weigh more than 22 pounds. This is great if you have something like the Alienware 34 QD-OLED curved monitor, which just happens to weigh 22 pounds.

We’ve seen other triple-monitor stands in the past, but many of them have been desk-mounted or attempt to cram three monitors together. The 55-inch Samsung Ark attempts to solve the issue of immersive wraparound gaming, but this beast is unwieldy and extremely expensive. The floor-mounted triple-monitor stand might just be a clever idea.

The Monoprice Dark Matter triple-monitor stand is $199 and comes with a one-year warranty. Monoprice claims the foldable stand arrives in hassle-free packaging and is easy to get set up in minutes.

Monitors don't usually get the limelight, but they're just as important as the components inside your PC. A bad monitor can make even a high-end PC feel like it's several years out of date, while one of the best monitors can make even an aging PC feel like it has a new set of tricks.

Our monitor reviews are designed to help you navigate the vast, overwhelming world of PC displays. Even if you narrow down a price, size, and resolution, you're often bombarded with dozens of options. We're here to help you separate the wheat from the chaff.

Alienware just invalidated its own high-end esports monitor
Overwatch 2 running on the Alienware 500Hz gaming monitor.

Alienware has a new batch of 27-inch monitors it's releasing, but one of them stands out from the rest: the AW2724HF. It's a 27-inch, 1080p display for $460, but it comes with a 360Hz refresh rate, which could make it one of the best gaming monitors on the market.

The big reason why is that Alienware released its AW2524H just a few months ago. That 1080p display with a 500Hz refresh rate costs almost twice as much as the AW2724HF. Although the difference between 360Hz and 500Hz sounds like a lot for competitive gaming, it's really not.

Why new OLED gaming monitors still can’t beat the best from last year
alienware 34 qd oled aw3423dw review 4

OLED gaming monitors are all the rage this year. I've reviewed nearly all the best of them, and although we're getting more, I have a pretty good idea about what 2023 holds in this developing space.

And yet, I still haven't found a display that trounces last year's Alienware 34 QD-OLED. I'm not going to pretend it's perfect -- I've complained about its insistent burn-in prompts in the past, for example. But it's the gold standard, and as I'll explain, its strengths go beyond what you can see on a spec sheet.
