Mount a Dell ST2420L Flat-Panel Monitor on 2405FPW Base? Answered
I just bought a Dell ST2420L flat-panel monitor to replace my old 2405FPW. It's a better monitor, but its base is terrible. The old monitor's base could be raised and lowered by several inches, the screen could be rotated 90 degrees, and it tilted farther. The new base isn't adjustable vertically, won't rotate, and tilts only a few degrees. I was hoping I could mount the new monitor on the old base, but the mounting hardware is all different.
The attached pictures show (1) the 2405's base with mounting bracket removed, (2) the 2405's mounting bracket, which bolts onto the base, (3) the place on the back of the monitor into which the mounting bracket slots, and (4) how the ST2420L connects to its stand (I'd rather not take mine apart to photograph, but I'll do it if anybody who wants to help needs to see the hardware more clearly).
I wonder if anybody has successfully adapted the base of a 2405FPW to mount an ST2420L or similar, recent monitor, or anything similar? Or would be interested in taking on the project?
Thanks for any help or ideas.
