So you've finally upgraded to a brand new LED backlit, IPS color accurate computer display. Now you've met all your spec-upgrade goals, it's time for the fun stuff: accessorizing. Monitors can be an opportunity for add-on utility features for the workspace, alongside a blank canvas to put your own stamp of fun-filled personalization...

Pimp Your MonitorC.H.I.M.P. Rearview Monitor Mirror

Adding a rear-view mirror to a monitor lets users see whether anyone is sneaking up from behind (offering an extra split second to ALT-TAB  to that oh-so-important spreadsheet we're supposed to be working on).

Adding an adjustable extension arm to a monitor can help users maneuver the screen to an ergonomic position. Built-in monitor stands always seem too far, too low, too angled, or just plain too off from a comfortable position, so adding an extension arm can solve this common problem.

ERGOTRON Quad-Monitor Desk Stand

Take multi-monitors the extra distance with a quad-monitor desk stand for the ultimate in multi-tasking. There won't be any more toggling between windows, although our necks might get a bit tired from swiveling our heads around.

Allsop Monitor Stand

Lifting a monitor off the desk is an easy and smart way to make more room on a desk. Monitor stands also help bring the screen up to eye level to reduce neck and eye strain, as well as to improve the image quality by putting the line of sight up to the monitor's best viewing angles.

Fellowes Swivel Clip Copy Holder

A 360 degree swivel mounts to the side of a monitor and holds paper or notes in a convenient eye-level position for reference or copies. This model uses double locking tape for easy removal and storage/portability, working on both desktop monitors or laptops.

Who needs sleek and modern when there's cute and cuddly? From Winnie the Pooh characters to Hello Kitty, puppies, and more - the web is littered with soft fuzzy covers to wrap around a monitor for the ultimate in "awww...."

Pimp Your Monitor3M Widescreen Privacy Monitor Filters

If you're seeking an extra layer of privacy, choose between a glossy or matte filter to protect screen data when viewed from side view angles. These filters can also protect monitors from scratches/damage as well. With sizes ranging from 18.1" to 30", 3M has versions to fit most any monitor.

HTC HD2 Computer Monitor Mount

Never miss a call or text message again, with a mount for cell phones, bringing mobile devices up to the same eye level as the screen. A mount also adds more screen real estate without taking up desktop real estate, as well as extra computing power with its own data connection for that extreme multi-tasker.

Computer Jewelry

Add a little bling to the screen with metal figurines to accessorize and go with the total look. Computer sitters such as Darth Vader, Bristle Buddy, Ollie, and even Wonder Woman can help add a little character (pun intended) to an otherwise drab space.
