The Fully Jax single-display, light-duty monitor arm is another of the many monitor arm options out there that you can use to add some ergonomic utility to your standing desk. It has some decent specs, being able to support a monitor up to 19.8 lbs and rotate 360-degrees. While it has a mechanical spring operation that is strong and long-lasting, that design also can feel a bit jerky and loud in its movements. On the other hand, this design also keeps it cheaper. It also has a height range a few inches shorter than the best competition that can limit its use for some taller users.

|The Jax does provide the basic necessities of an ergonomic monitor arm at a lower cost than some of its competition. Mechanical spring operation has a long lifetime compared to similarly-priced monitor arms that use gas pistons. Easy wire management for the display screen. Large tilt range in both directions. Grommet and edge clamp mounting hardware included.
|The mechanical spring operation on this monitor arm is not as quiet as gas piston alternatives and also results in more kick back force when adjusting that can make for some jerky movements. Having only about 11 inches in height adjustment range may not be enough for some users.
[Editors’ Note – April 21, 2023 – MillerKnoll, the $3B parent company of Fully.com, officially shut the company down on April 20th, 2023, after an 18-year run. Indeed, Fully’s phone lines and chat function have already been disabled, and the only way to reach customer service for product support is via email. We first reported this on March 8th after being notified by a number of Fully’s suppliers that the company was discontinuing operations.
Founded by ergonomics industry pioneer David Kahl in 2006, the company – which was originally known as ErgoDepot before a rebranding a few years ago – was acquired by Knoll. Knoll itself was shortly thereafter acquired by Herman Miller. This cataclysmic event is the latest in an ongoing set of challenges the industry has endured since the pandemic.
As a consequence of the company being wound down, we have taken down the scores for all of the Fully products we’ve reviewed to 0.5-star (including the Jarvis Standing Desk, Jarvis Standing L-Desk, Fully Jarvis Reclaimed Wood Standing Desk, Fully Jarvis Albright Standing Desk, Fully Jarvis Evolve Standing Desk, Fully Remi Standing Desk, Fully Jarvis Whiteboard Adjustable-Height Conference Table, Fully Jarvis Bamboo Adjustable-Height Conference Table, Fully Jarvis Tabletops For Standing Desks, Jarvis Monitor Riser, Jarvis Bamboo Desk Drawer, Fully Jarvis Single Monitor Arm, Fully Jarvis Dual Monitor Arm, Fully Jax Single-Display Monitor Arm, Fully Floatdeck Balance Board, Fully Sidekick Mobile File Cabinet, Fully Cable Management Kit and Fully Cable Management Tray). Fully has sadly been added to the Office Fitness Industry Dead Pool.
Ostensibly, Fully’s, “most popular products,” i.e. those that they still have a lot of inventory remaining, are being offered through the Herman Miller and Design Within Reach websites. We checked these listings and they are at full list price, unlikely to be purchased by any savvy shoppers. The nearest alternatives to Fully products are going to be found at iMovR (American-made) and UpLiftDesk (similar Chinese-made products).

The Fully Jax single-display, light-duty monitor arm is another of the many monitor arm options out there that you can use to add some ergonomic utility to your standing desk.
It does provide the basic necessities of an ergonomic monitor arm at a lower cost than some of its competition. With a mechanical spring operation, the monitor arm has a long lifetime, and a good long 15 year warranty. Easy wire management for the display screen will help keep a clean desktop. On compatibility, grommet and edge clamp mounting options are available. It has some decent specs, being able to support a monitor up to 19.8 lbs and rotate 360-degrees.
On the other hand, the mechanical spring operation on this monitor arm is not as quiet as gas piston alternatives and also results in more kick back force when adjusting that can make for some jerky movements. Having about 11 inches in height adjustment range may not be enough for some taller users. There are better choices for those individuals that can reach a few inches higher.
As long as it is compatible with your desk and your monitor, which it should be because its connectors are pretty universal, the Jax is a decent choice to add some ergonomic adjustment to your standing desk.
Once we get a Jax in our testing lab, we will provide an even deeper analysis of how this monitor arm performs up close and personal.
